Friday Five | No. 5

TGIF! So ready to get my weekend started! But first, here's a little Friday Five for you...

ONE | Tropical Storm Colin

Not even one week in to hurricane season and we already experienced our first tropical storm. Colin brought in quite a bit of wind and rain to the state of Florida. On Monday night, the wind and rain was on another level. Barely slept that night because it kept waking me up. Fortunately, no damage done to our area and things were back to normal by Tuesday evening.

TWO | DIY Coasters

What do you do when there is a tropical storm and you have to stay home? You make DIY coasters. I was inspired by Kyla Jicha who made a Minnie Mouse coaster out of cork. I got the materials and started getting to work on the Minnie Mouse coaster for the desk in my girl cave. Then, I thought it would be cute to do a donut one for work. Love how they turned out!

THREE | Bath and Body Works Haul

BBW has their semi annual sale going on right now and I had myself a mini shopping spree. I stocked up on my favorite scent, Pretty as a Peach. Also stocked up on some hand sanitizers and hand lotions for my purse.

FOUR | The Max

Who remembers Saved by the Bell? I remember watching it in elementary school at my friends house almost every day. I wanted to be Jessie and was madly in love with A.C Slater. HA! Well, now through August, they have opened up a restaurant, Save by the Max, that is a replica the Max in Chicago. How cool is that? I was so excited about this until I saw that it is just temporary. Boo!


FIVE | Tori Kelly and Andrea Bocelli

I am a huge fan of Andrea Bocelli. This video popped up in my Youtube feed the other day and it is one of my favorite songs. Even had it played during a part of my wedding ceremony. So pretty!

Friday Five | No. 4

Happy Friday! I sure enjoyed having a short work week. Before jumping into my Friday Five, if you haven't noticed, I've been making some updates to the blog. I added a profile picture and an about me page. Also figured out how to add social media icons. Watch out world!

ONE | National Doughnut Day

I look forward to this day all year like I look forward to Christmas. As if I don't have donuts any other day of the year, but that is besides the point. I celebrated the occasion by stopping at Dunkin Donuts before work. Free donut with purchase of coffee. SWEET!

TWO | Purina Puppyhood Commercial

I love these commercials. That puppy is the cutest!

THREE | Taylor Swift

While everyone is all caught up on T Swift's recent breakup with Calvin Harris, she is over here crushing it being named the Youngest of America's Richest Self-Made Women.

FOUR | New England Vacation

Our Fall trip planning is under way. We have decided to go to New England this time. I have been wanting to visit that area for some time now, so I am excited that it's finally happening. Some definite stops are Boston, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire. If you have any suggestions, please share!

FIVE | Mary Poppins Returns

I heard this morning on the radio that Disney will be making a live action movie of a childhood favorite, Mary Poppins. I'm loving all these live action movies that they are coming out with. Emily Blunt will be playing Mary Poppins and I am happy with that choice. I think she will be perfect for the part. Can't wait to see it!
