Friday Faves

Happy Friday, friends! I don't know about you, but this week has flown by! Just like that, Spring Break is over and Monday it's back to real world work life. Booooooo!

Let's talk about some faves this week, though.
{1} Friend Time
This week was filled with lots of time with friends. Coffee dates, lunch dates, shopping dates, and walking dates. I'm glad to be surrounded by friends, doing fun stuff and also staying active.

{2} Purchases
During my shopping date with my friend on Monday, where I was looking for a cute pair of black heels, I found a million things that weren't black heels (of course). My favorite purchases from the day were hands down, this hat and this pair of earrings. I've been looking for a pair of ear jackets since I saw Jamie on Married At First Sight with an adorable pair. Thanks to Nordstrom Rack, I'm now gonna be rocking these this Spring and Summer!
And this hat I found on a whim in JC Penney on sale for $15 and I can totally see it being worn on the beach or poolside in Aruba in a little over a month! #bringonthesunshine

{3} This Article about how Dogs Show You Love
This is totally Cooper. The cuddles, and the eye gazing. That pup shows me lots of love! :)

{4} Stuff From The Week
Even though we didn't go away for Spring Break, I still packed in some great things including a massage, a haircut and color, did a manicure on myself with my favorite Essie color (Limo Scene), got in some reading time outside, and got to spend time with friends...and today, with friends and family. 

{5} Funnies
When your coworker says an incredibly insensitive remark, in an attempt to relate to you, that totally falls flat:

My reaction when Brandi Glanville makes an appearance on RHOBH and she chooses the golden video ho look:

When your best friend is in town after not seeing her for what seems like a super long time:

When your nieces and nephew raid all of your snacks and candy in less than 24 hours:

On a more serious note, today is my dad's funeral. He's being buried at Quantico National Cemetery with full military honors since he was in the air force many moons ago. I'm so proud of my dad's service, and that he's going to receive this honor.
Today isn't going to be an easy day by any means. And probably neither will tomorrow. I'm just so thankful that we'll be surrounded by friends and family today--I know that will help.
If you have any room in your thoughts or prayers today, please add us to it, as it's going to be a really emotional day. One I'm not sure I'm even prepared for.

I hope you have a nice weekend, filled with fun and love!

  2. Sounds like a good week.

    I'll be thinking of you and your family today; we thought of burying my mom at Quantico(I've heard it's gorgeous), but ended up burying her at Arlington instead. The military burial is a very moving ceremony. Xoxo

  7. For sure praying for you guys today; I can't imagine. What wonderful honors for your Dad with a full military service. On a complete opposite note, I'm so glad you had such a great, relaxing Spring Break with fun stuff thrown in like a mani, cut/color, massage and shopping! And I'm super jealous of your Aruba trip so soon; that hat will be perfect!

  29. I have been eyeing limo-scene for a while and it looks like it's such a pretty milky white pink! My only concern is that it might be a little sheer. How many coats did you have to apply for that manicure?
