Friday, I LOVE YOU!

I know I say that I'm glad that it's Friday every week,
but I'm extra stoked about it this week :)

I'm gonna be real with you guys - I've had a pretty crappy week.
I'm really ready for graduation to be here so I don't have to juggle
working & taking 5 classes anymore.
It's kinda starting to break me.

But I hope you know by now that I'm all about being positive,
so I'm gonna do just that...despite my not so wonderful week,
I'm linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday
to share my top 5 favorite things from this week!

Because even on a bad week, I am blessed beyond measure:

one//

My blog BFF Meg (left) & my blog sister Lindsay (right)
could sense that I was having an emotional breakdown on Thursday so they drove
and met up for the first time just to take this picture for me...just kidding ;) 
But this really was the first time that they met and it just so happens that they did 
this for me and made my day A WHOLE LOT better :) I'm seriously so grateful 
that they are in my life...and I'm gonna have to get my butt to 
Texas this summer to meet them in real life...just saying!
Read Lindsay's post about how everything happens for a reason :)



two//

I got pulled over by a campus cop on my way to class for "breezing through a stop sign"
(whatever, I totally stopped...I swear!) but thankfully he kept the ticket and let me off with a warning. The best part about this is that when I rolled up my window I said, "The odds were ever in my favor!"...out loud...don't judge me :) #stillobsessedwithhungergames


three//

I'm meeting a blog friend in real life for the first time on Saturday!
The beautiful Candice & I are going shopping and getting lunch...
I can't tell you how STOKED I am :)



four//

I got these lovely cross body bags from Target - buy one get one half off...
YES PLEASE :)



five//

I was featured on one of my favorite beauty blogs, Her Late Night Cravings, yesterday!
My favorite line from the post: "This time instead of it being the latest thing in beauty or the "it" fashion trend of the moment, this "great" thing comes in a five foot package of a spunky and sweet college student from Tampa, Florida."

They're awesome :)
You can find the post here!


.
Wow 3/5 of these have to do with blogging...
guess it's safe to say that I love blogging & all of the 
wonderful people that I've met because of it :)

Have a super, awesome weekend lovelies!

  1. I totally understand the feeling of work and school breaking you. I remember the last few months before graduation I was so emotional and didn't think I would make it! But you have the right attitude about being totally blessed =) Hang in there, graduation will be here sooner than you know!

  11. I love you, my dear, and of course, we did that for you! :-) You are so loved!

    I'm so glad you choose to keep it positive! My inner musical theatre kid immediately thought of this:

    (Obviously, you know I don't condone fighting, but it's hilarious!)

    And cross-bags are SO my thing! Love them! Life gets so much easier on the weekends when I can transfer everything into my gold cross-body! (Unfortunately, it doesn't go too well with a black suit.)

    Have fun on your blate tomorrow! I love you, Mint Mac!

  29. What a great deal on the bags. I love the blue one.

    I scrolled on up after reading the initial post I clicked through.

    Funny enough though I did my first HFF today.
