High Five for Friday

Hello Friday!  Can you believe it's the last day of January already? I trust that you all had a good week. Keeping in line with Lauren Elizabeth, I'll share my High Fives from the week with you again today.

1). On Saturday my youngest daughter & I met up with my Sister & Niece & Nephew for some "Christmas gift-card shopping". The girls got to try-on different outfits from Justice & pick one buy & my nephew went shopping at the Lego store. They all left pleased with their purchases! Of course, us "big girls"each snagged a little something for ourselves too. She got this fun rhinestone statement necklace from the Buckle & I picked up this hat from Charming Charlie. We all had fun & enjoyed our few hours together.

Sorry for the creepy eyeball look here

2). Sunday was a beautiful day here in Colorado & I was able to meet up with a friend for a nice run. It felt great to be outside exercising & I always enjoy catching up with a good friend! Win-Win!

3). Sometime over the weekend, while putting away clean laundry, I did an impromptu mini closet clean-out. Something I hadn't worn in a while caught my eye & before you knew it I was tossing clothes into a pile for donation. Man, that feels good!!

4). I've mentioned before that Wednesday nights are one of the few nights for us that isn't packed full of "must-do's". The Hubby has been working late recently, so the girls & I had Game night this past Wednesday. We started out playing Disney's Apples to Apples & then moved on to one of our favorite new games, Heads Up by Warner Bros.  We have the app version, although I know you can buy it in stores as well. It's actually based on the game Ellen Degeneres often plays with her guests - it's a charades-type game. The app is very fun though because it also records the people who are acting out the words/phrases & you can re-watch all the action & laugh at yourselves!  Super fun & I highly recommend it...well worth the $0.99!  Plus it's great to have on your phone because you can break it out & play spontaneously when you're with friends or when you need entertainment for the kids!

5). I purchased these cute earrings at the Loft recently, & they are quickly becoming my favorite "go-to" earrings. They are simple & neutral, yet eye-catching & sophisticated. Not to mention I got them for $8 ($32 originally)...score!

Well, there you have it, a quick snippet of my week.  Any big plans for the weekend besides the Superbowl?  If you need outfit inspiration for the big game, check out this post for ideas.  Don't forget to root for the Denver Broncos!!

Have a Happy Weekend!


  1. Fun! I enjoyed reading your favorites this week. I especially like your new necklace and earrings. I don't like your favorite team...only because I won't be surprised if they beat my favorite team. LOL! But on Monday we can move past that. :) -Gina

  2. Love that spike necklace! A lot!!!
    I still can't quite decide who I want to root for. All I know is that I bought 4 squares at work so I hope the quarter end scores make me some money! :)


We love hearing from each & everyone one of you! We don't always reply here, so be sure to check your email too!
