Five on Friday

Friday, May 16, 2014

Boy oh boy am I SO GLAD that today is FRIDAY!
This week has been crazy. I still have so much to do at work today, but knowing that it's Friday will get me through :)

Stella and Dot Online Trunk Show.

Reminder : some exciting news! I've teamed up with one of my friends who is a Stella and Dot rep and we're going to be hosting a trunk show! Mark your calendars for May 22nd (next Thursday!)  because we're having a Stella & Dot ONLINE Trunk Show! Get cozy, grab some wine, relax and shop for the latest styles from Stella & Dot in your PJs from the comfort of your own home. And who doesn't love shopping in the comfort of our own home while sipping on a glass of wine?! 
Our personal Stylist, my friend, Katie Foster, will be online to send you pictures of some style options for the season and help with any outfits you may need help styling. 
Can't wait to see the collection? 
I'm personally really excited about this trunk show because she is donating 10% of her commission to help support breast cancer awareness so ANYTHING you buy help this cause! As some of you know, my mom passed away from breast cancer 11 years ago so this cause is especially important to me. I've been doing breast cancer walks in the past to help support research and awareness but have been unable to now that I have Mason so this trunk show and being able to help donate means a lot to me. I am really looking forward to this! Let me know if you send the link to a friend and they shop too because then Katie will treat you to free shipping!!
Drink for the Weekend.

I was searching on Pinterest the other night and came across these beauties : sangria in a jar. Genius. Seriously genius. I love sangria but...Seth does not. These would be perfect! I could make my own and portion them out and have one a night. Not sure why I didn't think of this earlier! The recipe sounds delicious and the idea is so smart. Can't wait to try!

Fruit Infused Water.

This fruit infused water is inspired by my trip to the spa for Mother's Day. They had THE BEST fruit infused water there. It had watermelon, lemon, and mint. I didn't have any mint at home but the watermelon and lemon combo was so good!

Mani. Pedi.

Kinda loving the pink color with the accent of gold!

For Mother's Day I got a gift card to a nail salon and I could not have been more excited. I've been dying to get my nails done for a while now but haven't had time (or extra money) to do so. Today after work I fully intend on spoiling myself!

Costco PJ's.

(sorry for the awful, awful picture quality)

I was shopping at Costco the other day and noticed that they had Carter's pj's on sale. $6.99 instead of $8.99. I had been wanting to get some for Mason for a while now (mainly because he only has winter pj's and it is ridiculously hot here) and the fact that they were on sale was even better. They come in a 3-pack (shirt, shorts, and pants) which I LOVE because it gives me matching options when it is warmer or cooler. And with the weather we've been having, it's been super nice to have a shirt and shorts that match for Mason.

And two extra...
Grey's Anatomy.

Did anyone watch?!?! All I can say is wow!!


Today is my brother-in-law's birthday (I know he's not reading but HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHAWN!) and Sunday is my niece, Emma's, birthday as well as Shawn's dad's birthday. So Saturday is birthday party central! Pretty excited to celebrate and to eat cake :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. Happy Friday, Elizabeth! Loving those nails! Enjoy putting that Mother's Day gift card to use getting your nails done today!! Happy Birthday to your brother-in-law and niece ...and happy cake eating to you! ;) YUM!! Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. YUM to that sangria and I'm also on a fruit infused water kick - it's so good. Love that manicure -- go do it!! :)
    Have a great weekend!

  3. I love that manicure! Unfortunately I don't think my salon can do those fancy stripes!

  4. Sangria in a jar? Sign me up. And that for some reason looks extra delicious. Those nails are to die for. That baby pink and gold combo is SO CUTE!

  5. I've never had sangria (I know!), but the jar idea is genius! I'll have to try that fruit-infused water. I drink so much water during the day, and I'd rather avoid the fake drink mixes if I can. Love the pjs too - I'm kinda addicted to Costco, so I'll have to check those out on my next trip :)

  6. I LOVE those dino PJs! I miss costco and deals like that. Sam's is good but just not as good!

  7. Sangria in a jar?! Amazing! Love the mani inspiration!

    1. I know right?! Why didn't I think of that sooner! Genius.

  8. Love the mani pic!!! Glad you're getting to have one! Hope you had a great weekend!!!

  9. I have got to start drinking fruit infused water! Lemon water is soooo good for you, but I can't stand it! Mixing other fruits in with it though? I'm sure I can handle that! Hope you had an amazing weekend!

  10. Pink and gold is one of my favourite combos! How did the mani go? I've never attempted to make Sangria but I just found a sangria recipe I'm dying to try out, mason jars would make it even better plus way cuter.
    Fruit infused water just sounds so odd to me. It just sits in there? Do you mush you eat it afterwards? I don't like lemon water, so maybe that is it...maybe with a different fruit.
