High Five for Friday

TGIF and the end of the semester.  I have a final for Financial Management today, and then I’m done til next semester, which is my last for my MBA!  I’m clearly blogging when I should be studying. . . . Like every other Friday, I’m linking up with Lauren at Lauren Elizabeth for H54F.

1. We hit the pool for the 1st time this year with Chauncey’s co-workers, and Kane loved it!  Chauncey works for and with some awesome people, so we always enjoy getting together with them!  Yes, it was only 70 degrees outside, but the pool was heated to the mid-90s.  
Kane was too cool for the shades.
2. I went out to dinner with a good friend at Old Chicago.  I think it’s my favorite chain pizza restaurant.  I had an individual Chicago-style with pepperoni and cheese, no pizza sauce (don’t judge til you’ve tried it).   It was nice to catch up, and of course we talked about books!
This was too yummy!
3.  BRIGHT deal!  Ulta has their brand of gel eyeliners (mentioned here) on sale for $1 each!  You can buy 10 for $10, and use Ulta’s $3.50 off $10 coupon to score 10 eyeliners for $6.50 TOTAL, or $.65/each.  I’m stocked up on black eyeliners right now, so I got some fun colors to try.  Colored eyeliners pair great with nude eyeshadow, especially if you do a cat-eye.  If you’re looking to add some color, pick up Ulta’s Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Storm or Peacock, or their Automatic Eyeliner in Capri, and layer it over black eyeliner to make the color pop!  
I don’t know what I like more–the colors or the price!
4. This outfit.  I love cropped pants in fun colors with simple tees, especially when everything is on sale/cheap!
Scarf and Pants: Old Navy, details here.
T-shirt: Similar, Arizona at JCP, $6.99
5.  We started celebrating Mother’s Day in the office early. . . with cupcakes.  We celebrate everything with food.  Sometimes, we have to celebrate with cupcakes just because, but today we had an excuse to:)
Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is Sunday!  If you’re still looking for a gift, be sure to check out this post for gift ideals from Target for less than $20!

Nice to meet you!
