Friday Favorites!

Friday is Here!  I'm EXCITED!!!  And so ready for the WEEKEND!!  It's been a long week.  But it was filled with lets get to it!

{ONE}  Favorite new top!
I know I said I wasn't going to shop this April and I really didn't...MUCH!!  I did however pick up this top when I saw it was on sale from a boutique on Instagram.  I like shopping small.  I like that this shirt was different, with the buttons on the back and elbow patches.  It's also multi-seasonal which makes it that much more versatile.  And for only $15, how could I not get it!?!?  Loved that we had a dress down on Tuesday and I was able to wear it!  But in all honesty, I'd wear this with leggings and boots to work any day!

{TWO}  Sweet Surprises!
Being back at work this week after 12 days off was rough!  Coming back and finding out that the last day of school was one day later than you thought it is going to be was even tougher.  HA!  But a sweet student coming and telling me she saw these at Target and thought of me made both of those things a little easier to swallow.

{THREE}  Blog Takeover!
Next Week my bestie, Mel is taking over the blog!  An avid reader,she joined The Blended Blog's Virtual Book Club earlier this year and was able to choose one of the books to read for April.  Since she doesn't have a blog of her own, I offered up mine to her to write her book review when we share them next Thursday, May 4th.  Yesterday earlier this week emailed me her review of The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah.  It is so good!  I can't wait for you all to read it when it goes live.  So come on back for that!!  And join TBB's Virtual Book Club in May!  These are the books we'll be reading!!  Read one, read all!

{FOUR}  National Pretzel Day!
You guys know I celebrate everything and since Pretzels as big as my head from one of my favorite places in town, are my absolute favorite, I had to go celebrate!  Nothing gets me over the hump of the week like a giant soft pretzel and a beer!

{FIVE}  Winner! Winner!
Last night I attended a small fundraiser for my school.  It was a great time.  It was like a cocktail party/happy hour kind of this with food and drinks...and raffles!!  I was lucky enough to win one of the Door Prizes!  A Stop and Shop Gift Card!  Woo Hoo!  That will come in so handy!  Love my school and community.  It's nice to get out and mingle away from the school once and awhile!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  What was your favorite thing about this week?  I'd love to hear about it!

Hope everyone has the best weekend!!

Linking up with Erika and the girls today for Friday Favorites and Tiff and the girls for High five for Friday!


  1. Such a cute shirt!! I looked at your book club books and I have read The Shack it is so good. I have purchased Joanne Gaines book but have not read it yet.

  2. I love that shirt and who doesn't love Dr. Seuss. I loved the Magnolia Story and highly recommend the audiobook since Chip and Jo are the narrators. I will have to check out one of the other books for May! Jess at Just Jess

  3. LOVE that top and Hello pretzel of my dreams!!! Yay winner winner chicken dinner, well the gift card was way better than a chicken dinner, lol!! Happy weekend babe!
