oh hey friday

Friday Five

Hi friends! Hope you all had a great week! We had an absolute blast at Universal Studios this weekend. I’ve still not fully recovered as we got back Tuesday and went back to work Wednesday, but the tiredness is worth it.

Obligatory vacation-recap photos. Just keep scrolling right by if you don’t care about them. It won’t hurt my feelings. 🙂

I need your opinions. Have you heard of ItWorks? I’ve been hearing about it for some time, and am curious about the Hair, Skin and Nails since I’ve been growing out my hair. I’d love to know if it is legit or not!

FINALLY watching the season premiere of Walking Dead as I write this post. Don’t worry, I won’t give out any spoilers, but OH. MY. GOSH. I can’t wait for the next episode!

Seriously, Netflix.

I really want to try the dark lipstick trend. It just seems so perfect for fall. Think I can pull it off?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! It’s supposed to get in the 40s here, so I am SO excited!!!

Friday Five

It’s Friday and Fall Break is just mere hours away! I am one happy girl!

I’m always behind on these things, but I just discovered the brilliance that is Podcasts. Specifically, the Limetown and Serial podcasts. Limetown has me sitting on the edge of my chair during each episode, and then checking my phone every day to see if the newest episode has released. Serial revisits a real murder case from 1999 and looks into whether the right person was convicted. I love crime dramas, so both of these are right up my alley.

The amount of times per day that I lose my keys is pretty ridiculous. 90% of the time they’re just buried in the bottom of my work bag, but sometimes, I lock them in my car or leave them in a random office in a random building on campus and then I have to spend 30 minutes retracing my steps. But not anymore! This thing is basically the “Find My iPhone” for your keys. Hallelujah!

We are headed to Orlando, Florida tomorrow! My sister and her husband are coming, as well as some friends and we are going to spend two days at Universal Studios. The tickets my parents got us for Christmas last year are annual passes, so we figured we should take advantage of them, especially since we are all such huge Harry Potter fans. But we are also going to Halloween Horror Nights while there which will be interesting to say the least. I don’t do too well with haunted houses but as long as there aren’t too many spiders, hopefully I will be ok.

Pumpkin pie martini. Need I say more?

Last Saturday I had the honor to throw my best friend a baby shower. It was a small, intimate shower with mainly her husband’s family and some friends. It’s still so weird to think that in a few weeks, she will be a mom, but I cannot wait to meet her baby boy!

Friday Five

I’m am so dang glad it’s Friday. It has been a hard week at work, and I am in need of some time to decompress. I’m starting to try to and transition back to working 4 days a week, but it’s hard when I know there is so much to do. But I know in the end I’m more productive when I’ve had time to rest, so Monday I will get back at it hard. Anyway, let’s talk about something other than work!

The weather in NC has been absolutely PERFECT! It is beginning to feel like fall —– temps have gotten down in the 50s some this week and only climbing to the upper 70s to low 80s. It seriously makes my heart happy. Fall decorating will be commencing this weekend!

Welp, I did it. I pre-ordered the iPhone 6s. One more week until this beauty is mine! And yes, I am a total lemming. I admit it.

This looks absolutely hysterical! I cannot wait for November when this releases!

I completely forgot I pre-ordered this several months ago! I cannot wait to dig into it this weekend. I loved her first book and have high hopes for the second one.

This video is on point! I’ve always thought BMI was used way too frequently as a measure of health, but this video shows exactly why it is not the best indicator. I’m not saying it should be disregarded completely, but I do think it shouldn’t be the end-all when judging someone’s health.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
