Friday Lovin

Hi beautiful people!
It's that time again...FRIDAY!

I love Fridays now more than I ever have. Wanna know why?
That's right...3 day weekends every week.
For now anyway. Amen to that :)

As usual, I'm linking up with Lauren to tell you guys
about my top 5 favorite things from this week!


Are you ready?!


Free Rays tickets from work...um, YES PLEASE :)

Oh and no, I'm not playing Atari...that is the program that I have to use for work.
TALK ABOUT OLD SCHOOL. My eyes really appreciate staring
at neon-colored text all day ;)


I finally got to wear the Steve Madden coral wedges that my grandma
bought me! There may or may not be an outfit post with these babies
scheduled for Monday...okay fine, there is! I'm excited :)


This stuff is BOMB (yeah I said that). I love the Pink Punch!
It's the perfect amount of color for someone who is afraid of bold lip color like me.
And it actually keeps my lips moisturized. My lips have been sunburnt all
week & this stuff has been my saving grace.


I got the sweetest gift in the mail from a reader/sponsor.
Ellegra made these herself AND she sent me colors that match my blog....
seriously, how thoughtful is that?! The turquoise one has a bobby pin attached &
the coral one is a ponytail holder. Her card congratulated me on graduating &
thanked me for being so nice...UM way to make me shed a tear :)
Thank you so much, girl! Blogging has brought so many wonderful people
into my life...it blows me away every day!

And don't worry - you'll be getting to know Ellegra later on this month,
when I introduce my large sponsors!


From now on, every Sunday my group of friends & I will
be having family dinner night! Each week will have a theme.
This week we're thinking Mexican since Cinco De Mayo is Saturday!

They are some of the greatest people that I have ever known & we truly
are like one big family. Stoked to eat & fellowship with everyone all together every week!

This is a picture that Curt took before we prayed last week.
We were standing in a circle, so he did some weird panoramic shot...
pretty sweet!

Do me a favor...enjoy your weekend :)

Tomorrow will be the last Saturday post that I do for AWHILE.
last thing...I have some brand new sponsor options for June.
Check them out!
