Friday Favorites 7.3.15 (It's My Birthday!)


Today is the last day to enter my Blondes Have More Fun giveaway! The winner will be announced on Monday!


And on to the Friday Favorites...

/1// Birthdays!


As I mentioned before, it's birthday season for my family, and today I turn 31! It's my birthday! I'm just going to be totally honest - it's my favorite day of the whole year. How to freak am I 31 tho?!


//2// Audio Books

Audio books are saving my life right now. The drive to my externship is about 30 minutes without traffic and takes at least 45+ to get home in rush hour, and I'm a total road rager! They keep me calm and help pass the time.


//3// This cute family...


Isn't my brother's family sooooo cute! Brett and his girls! I got to skype with my sister-in-law and the girls this week. Here's how it went:

Emma: Ella's foot was bleeding.
Me: Really? How did that happen?
Emma: An ostrich bit her big toe.

Whaaaaat?!


//4// Ed Sheeran's Afire Love (acoustic version) 



//5// Wimbledon

Wimbledon started this week! Of course, I'm rooting for my tennis crush Andy Murray, but he's in the same half of the draw with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Tough break. This year is all about the Novak show. Good luck to all the players!




 
 
Have a great weekend!

Monday Madness 6.29.30 + Giveaway

Hey, hey! Monday again. Does anyone ever get excited for Mondays?



So I was back to work at David's on Saturday after having last weekend off to spend time with my bff Sara Jane. Ugh, I am so ready to have a full time job and get my weekends back. I really could have used a sleep-in day.

Anyway, last Wednesday was Nick's 32nd birthday. I love birthdays. We celebrated with a coconut cream pie, gifts, and went to see Jurassic World (which was actually pretty awesome).




I love this guy.  I'm excited for another amazing year with him!

Nick's high school friend and his wife and son were in town and stayed with us on Friday and Saturday night. There was a beach soccer tournament this past weekend. I was able to go on Sunday and spend about 5 hours of the beach in Grand Haven. #HavenHeaven!




This week I'm celebrating my fellow fake blondes! Keep your hair from getting brassy this summer with Loreal Brass Banisher and John Frieda Sheer Blonde tone correcting purple shampoo. The giveaway ends Friday. The winner will be announced next Monday!
