High Five for Friday

Happy Friday and TGIF!  Let’s recap the week:

1.  I was back home this weekend, so I had to stop for a sno cone!  There’s an awesome little Tropical Sno place that I have been going since I as a kid.  They have sooo many flavors.  I got 1/2 wedding cake and 1/2 vampire blood.

That’s Essie’s Bikini So Teeny on my nails:)
2. I snagged this set from Ipsy for only $20 shipped ($81 value)!   I did a review and a classy, natural makeup that can will take you from the office to happy hour–read it here.  The post also has a link to Ulta’s awesome BOGO FREE deal on Pur Minerals (good through 08/09)!  It also includes the new eyeliner I’m in love with!
3. Kane and I had 2 lunch and dinner dates over the weekend.  We met up with some good friends at the local dairy bar on Saturday, and then took the long drive home and met up with more friends!  It was so nice to catch-up with everyone!
Kayla (l) just found out she’s expecting a little one of her own!  I think Al and Kane gave her a preview of what she’s in for.
This is Kane (r) with his buddy Noah (l).  Jen and I got married 1 week apart, and had our boys 3 days apart.  Since we do all of our life events together, I ask her not to die anytime soon;)  Yes, Kane wore the same outfit Noah had on the day before, so they were almost twins.  PS– doesn’t Kane looks so devious here?!
4. I finally got in my interchangeable tassel bracelet from Style This Life!  Head over here to get the details and a promo code for 15% off your order from Style This Life’s Etsy shop through the end of the month!
1 bracelet with 7 ways to wear for $11 (less with promo code)?! Yes, please!
5. Today makes 2 year since my Mamaw passed away.  She was absolutely awesome–the stories I could tell you about her!  She was beautiful inside and out!  You may wonder why I’m sharing this on my #H54F post (which are happy posts), but instead of being sad, I want to take today to remember how great she was and celebrate that!  In the last couple of years before she died, she learned how to “work” the computer, bought a laptop, and left up 3 tabs at all times–Facebook, Gmail, and the local obituaries (I kid you not).  And Lord have mercy if someone closed 1 of those tabs and she couldn’t figure out how to sign back in.lol  She would have gotten such a kick out of this blog, and I’m sure she would have left 4 tabs open now.  So here’s to you Mamaw–love and miss you!
Mary Lillie Stacy, 1945-2012.  She passed away 2 weeks after I sat for the bar.

How’s your week been?  Find any good deals?  Have something totally awesome happen? Let me know in the comments below!

    Happy Friday! Love the shorts/striped t shirt combo above! And, I'd hate to admit it, but I've never had a sno cone! It looks yummy!

    How sweet that your mamaw enjoyed her computer/the internet so much! Some of my family check the local obituaries all the time too! Yay for an ipsy deal!!

    Thanks for stopping by:) I hope you giggled just a little as you read my tribute…I did when writing it and I know that she'd enjoy me telling the story. Hope you have a great weekend as well!

    Thanks, Katie! I always feel like I look like a hot mess whenever I'm holding Kane and try to take a picture–he's all over the place now! And you seriously need to hunt down a sno cone/shaved ice place and try one ASAP! I will warn, thought, that not all sno cones are created equal. The finer shaved the ice is, the better the sno cone;)

    Oh man, I haven't had a tropical sno yet this summer. I neeeeeeed one! Yum! I ordered a couple things with your discount code! I have a tassel bracelet that has a removable tassel already, so I ordered some more tassels and a necklace. Yay!
