High Five for Friday

TGIF!  I have had midterm stuff to work on every night this week, but tonight’s my last midterm exam.  I’m stressed and will be glad to get it out of the way! If you’re so inclined, please whisper a prayer for me:) Anyways, let’s recap the week:

1. I’ve teamed up with two of my favorite bloggers, Della Devoted and KT Cup of Tea Blog, to bring you 2 giveaways that will help you to be fashionable on fall.  You can enter the first on the blog here and the second one on Instagram! I personally own 3 of the 4 items (not the scarf, but I want it!), and we think you’ll love them too!

Giveaway #1–on the blog
Giveaway #2–on Instagram!

2.  Speaking of giveaways, I won a loop giveaway on Instagram from Sa Sea Decor!  I was given a $50 shop credit and chose to purchase this pullover and this tee.  Can’t wait to get them in!

3. We went to visit family back home last weekend.  While I had to work on my group paper for my Leadership class, I also got to spent a lot of time with my family.  It’s sos nice to see them–and get some home-cooked meals.

4. My husband has been AWESOME this week.  I’ve needed to concentrate on studying every night this week, and he has taken care of Kane.  I can’t thank him enough:)

5. Target beauty boxes are back, and I purchased it as soon as I found out they were available to order!  I have the details here if you want to know more about it. I highly recommend!

FLASH SALE ALERT!! going on today (10/10) from 6 pm to 9 pm Central Time, you can pick up a monogrammed infinity scarf from Mimi’s Monograms for only $12.99 (reg. $19.99 w/ monogram) + free shipping! Use code FLASH7, and then enter TIF or TIF15 in the message box when you order!  This is an awesome deal on these scarves, and I absolutely love mine!  I’m a sponsor for Mimi’s Monograms, but I ordered this scarf prior to being a sponsor:)
