Friday Loving Like I Always Do

This week went by pretty quickly. But don't they all?
I love looking back at the week and remembering all of the little things that made it special.

SO what better way to do that than by linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk for High Five for Friday! Here are my top 5 favorite things from the week :)

My little blog hit 1,000 GFC members this past weekend! I was so excited to see that. I don't do it for the numbers, but it sure is nice to see that what I'm putting my heart into is growing. My goal was to have 100 GFC members by December of this year...consider that goal beyond conquered. Thank you :)

My "baby" brother turned 21 this week! We got the family together and went to Olive Garden for dinner. We don't get together very often so when we do I really make sure to appreciate it! Plus Olive Garden is one of my favorite restaurants...win! That sangria was delicious, in case you were wondering.

I finally found a peanut butter that is all natural that tastes good. And let me tell you, I mean GOOD! Crunchy coconut and peanut butter spread...get in my belly! This stuff is 100% natural, vegan & gluten free.

Tuesday night I stayed at Adam's pretty late playing Killer UNO with some of our friends. That game is addicting...I wanted to keep playing until I won! Which never happened, by the way...sad day, ha!

I've been on the hunt for a product that gives my fine/limp hair some body without weighing it down. I've only used this stuff once this week, but I think this could be a winner!

Happy weekend, lovelies :)
Do something worth remembering!


  1. congrats on 1,000! so exciting!! and what fun family/friends pictures! and I need to use that product - my hair is needs some help!

  2. Congratulations on 1000 followers! That's definitely something to be excited about :)

  4. Ummm...I literally LIVE off of that peanut butter. I could eat it for the REST of my life.

  5. Congrats on reaching 1000 followers lady. You are awesome! =)

  6. You are amazing, that's for sure! You have seriously earned every single one of your followers because of your great content. :) Olive Garden is a nice placeto celebrate special days. It's because of thm that I love a red cheese sauce - ie the best of both worlds!

    BTW, you should show pics of that new redken spray in your hair! How does it compete with the humidity?

  7. I am so happy for you and the big 1,000!!! That is SO awesome! You deserve it :)

  8. Congrats on 1000, girl! You deserve it. I seriously love your stuff. Keep doing what you do! I also saw you're reading "Sisterhood Everlasting" - I loveddd it - so fantastic, especially after growing up reading the Traveling Pants books. I felt like I got some closure ; )

  9. I love Sangria! If you have a Lazy Dog Cafe near you, try their White Peach Sangria. And better yet, if you have a Benihana near you, try their White Peach Sangria - delish!!

  10. Happy Birthday Jess's baby brother! Woo Hoo 21! and Woo hoo family getting together!
