Up Top!

It's FRIDAY :) Which means you're about to read about 5 of my favorite things from this week.
I'm linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday!

one// Crappy picture BUT look at my ponytail progress! My hair is growing, and I'm so glad. It's been about 9-10 months since I've cut it...BIG DEAL for me! Actually I walked into the office one day this week and my brother said,"Your hair is long as hell!" ...haha, thanks brother :)

two// Guess what happened at work on Thursday?! I GOT A RAISE! Whoop :)

three// Ever since I got my bubble necklace from Cheerfully Charmed I've been being a bit more bold in my jewelry wearing, and I have to say...I'm loving it! Obviously I was working really hard at the office taking pictures of myself...a raise well deserved ;)

four// Today I will be lounging poolside with one of my good friends, Danielle! We're both in some serious need of Florida sunshine. And we're going mountain biking again this Saturday, too...stoked!

five// The other day I was whining to Adam that he never 'liked' my Instagram pictures (I have a hard life, I know ;)) so you know what he did? He showed me some serious Instagram love...ha!

Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend you sweet people!
OH and last thing, I have lots of sponsor spots still open for July :)

  1. I love your cute little ponytail! I want to cut my hair now that it's getting hot, but I know I'm going to miss it.

  2. those little instagram hearts always make my day :)

    and love your necklace :)

  5. Your hair looks good!! Yayy for a raise! :)

  6. Congrats on your raise! Have fun at your pool day and biking

  7. yay! congrats on your raise, girl!! go celebrate this weekend :) happy friday!!

  8. yeah for longer hair and congrats on your raise!! have a great weekend!

  9. All of those are wonderful things! And look at your ponytail! Wahoo! I still have your sumo "top knot" photo from a few months ago. Bahaha! It's so darn cute. Love it.

    But I love you more!

    Happy Friday! Enjoying mountain biking and the rest of your weekend!

  10. I know how hard it is to stick with trims alone. It took me a good 2 years to get my hair where I wanted it! Now I go back and forth between slighty shorter and longer versions of my cut. It's good but it takes work to keep from hacking it off all over again! Keep at it.

    Adam....I see why you keep him around.

    Enjoy your pool time and mountain biking!

  11. Love the ponytail and the million IG "likes"...too cute!

    Have a happy weekend!

  12. Nothing beats that first real ponytail after chopping your hair off! Looks good :)

  13. Yey for growing hair!! And for a raise :) have an awesome weekend, enjoy the sunshine! XO

  14. LOVE your ponytail!! pretty hair! congrats on the raise!! annnd your BF is adorable!
    happy friday girl! :)

  15. Sounds like something my husband would do lol!


  16. Way to go on the ponytail...I totally can relate!!! That was a major goal for me...just to have ANY kind of "tail". Yay!!
    Now it's really long -- it took about 2 years but I kept it trimmed to keep it fresh. Are you getting alot of "Oh! Are you growing your hair out??" That always made me feel insecure and wondering if I was doing the right thing...but I pressed on...and am so glad I did. My husband loves it and that it's so versatile!! And yes, long hair is hot in the summer heat but that's the beauty of a ponytail, a braid or a messy bun!!!! :)
    Happy Friday!! And so wish I could go biking with you -- you've given me the fever sooo bad...first step...get a bike!!!! :\

  17. Does your BF have Instagram? My hubby would never. Haha. I think he downloaded some droid photo app and never even used it! I wish! Congrats on the raise!

  18. Your pony tail is cute! I can't wait for mine to grow out!

    And how sweet he went through your pics and showed ya some love :) I wish my hubs would download IG... but he says "heck no!"

  19. Congrats on your raise girl! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  20. Yay for your raise! And bubble necklaces make all outfits better, Im pretty convinced of that!

  21. Check out your hurrrrrr!!! YOU GO with your growing luck!! Looks great even in a pony goooorl!!

    And loveee that statement necklace. Very adorbs and that color makes me swoon ;)

  22. OMG!!! I just realized that I titled my HF4F post last Friday Up Top too! I just watched A Night At The Roxbury with my S.I.L who had never seen it so I decided to put up top in honor of the Butabi brothers haha, hilarious.


I love reading your encouraging words :)
Seriously...every comment makes my day a little brighter!
SO THANK YOU for being wonderful!
