High Five for Friday 08.25.17: Solar Eclipse + Other Things

TGIF!!! Della at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, Becky from BYBMG, and myself want to welcome you to the High Five for Friday link-up and the weekend. We made it! High Five for Friday is where we come together to share five highlights from the past week each Friday.

  1. Let’s start with the eclipse!!!  Lexington, Kentucky had 94% totality.  I know many people were underwhelmed by the eclipse, but I thought it was pretty cool!
  2. On Friday night, Kane and I joined Chauncey at his office for a work party.  We enjoyed playing Mario Kart projected onto the wall, and grabbing some Mellow Mushroom pizza. It was fun catching up with our friends:)
  3. Saturday night, I had to make a trip to Ashland. Afterwards, I met up with my friend Jen for dinner at Ruby Tuesday’s.  She brought her son, who is just 3 days younger than Kane.  She brought me clothes I’d left at her something like 3 years ago.lol
  4. Chauncey, Kane, and I handed down to the DIstillery District on Sunday evening after shooting pics. We grabbed some Goodfellas and sat outside. It was a good evening to relax.
  5. I got to see my Papaw over the weekend. Kane and I stopped by his house and sat on the Porch with him for awhile. I have so many good memories growing up of sitting on that porch with him and my Mamaw, watching the cars go by.

ICYMI, here’s this week’s blog posts:

1. Must-Have Booties for Late Summer and Early Fall

    Love that flamingo tee! And how fun that you reached almost totality with the eclipse! We had 85%, and noticed a significant difference in outside lighting and heat. The temps dropped and it felt perfect outside <3

    Glad you enjoyed the eclipse. We only had a 75% eclipse where I live so it really wasn’t that impressive for us to see. Clouds block the sun more, lol Have a great weekend!
