What's Not to Love?

Happy Good Friday, sunshines!
Unfortunately I will be in class & then at work, so if you have
a 3 day weekend enjoy it enough for me, too ;)

I'm linking up with the oh, so lovely Lauren at From My Grey Desk
for some High Five for Friday action!


All you have to do is name the top 5 things from your week!
And to be honest, this week was SO hard for me to narrow
it down to just 5. Lots of fun little things made this week a great one :)

After realizing just how much coffee/caffeine I consume in a day after
doing this post, I decided to limit myself to one cup of coffee
a day. ONE. That's huge for me. I normally down at least 3 cups every day.
Well I did it! And guess what - I fell asleep before 3am every night...imagine that ;)
More sleep = happy Jessica!

I've been drinking tea instead (caffeine free of course) and it's actually pretty good.

I finally found a pair of white jeans that fit! And they were on sale!
Thank you for having petite clothes LOFT :)
You make shopping for us short people so much easier.
Along with the white jeans, I got some cute coral wedges.

Actually, I posted about these wedges in my Craving Coral post on
Wednesday and my Grandma read the post and ordered them for me...
um can you say BEST GRANDMA EVER?! Outfit post coming soon :)

Remember when I told you guys that when I hit 500 GFC readers
that something exciting was going to happen? Well I'm at 497...close enough ;)
I'm getting a CUSTOM blog design...AH! I am beyond stoked and can't wait to see it!
It'll be awhile before it's installed, because I'm #10 on the waiting list,
but I just couldn't keep it a secret any longer.

Today is the Rays' home opener!
I don't follow a lot of sports, but baseball is an exception.
LOVE. Can't way to get to a game!
Go Rays :)

I got to spend the whole day with Adam yesterday!
He had off work, because he was supposed to be getting his
tattoo done (rescheduled for May 31st), and I had already planned
to skip class to go with him. So we grabbed some lunch and then
walked around historic Plant City. We mostly hung out near an old
train station type place (now the Welcome Center) and took a few pictures.
Oh, and I finally got to try a macaroon...delicious! Be on the lookout for an outfit
post dedicated to our Plant City hangout next week :)


And last thing,
I never heard back from the winner of my giveaway, so
I went back to the Rafflecopter widget and had another
random winner chosen:
