Five On Friday

TGIF! SO happy it is Friday.  This week has been a tough one.  I seriously have 3 "drafts" that I was going to post Tues, Wed and Thur and then life got in the way.  Only this time it was stuff that was way more important than blogging.  My dad is in the hospital.  He is doing better and should be going home very soon but to say it has been a roller coaster of a week would be an understatement.

So all I have time for right now is a quick Five On Friday.  Next week I plan to be back to blogging more often and I have some great posts to share with you!!



On Sunday I met Amy who has been one of my favorite bloggers for a long time.  She lives in Houston but was visiting the Cape and Boston for a girls' weekend.  We went out to dinner in the North End and then out for drinks.  We had so much fun and it was so nice to meet Amy in real life.  Oh and her friend's are the sweetest too!

I  also want to give a shout out to another blog friend, Helene, who I asked to do some blog/internet work for me.  Let's just say she is amazing and has been a HUGE help.  I will be blogging about it in more detail next week.


Coming home to a mailbox with good mail is the best.  Yesterday I got the best wedding thank you note I've ever seen!  It was from my friend Stephanie and that is a pic the photographer took after the ceremony of everyone at the wedding.  So fun!

I also got a new iPhone case that I order for cheap on JANE and an "army" jacket that I got from Old Navy on major sale.


Wednesday was my friend Ilka's birthday.  We had a Fashion Plates meeting and then went out for a birthday drink.  I really needed a drink after the day I'd had and they had my favorite, sangria!  It was nice to relax and celebrate with friends even though I was exhausted the following day at work!

Last night we had a table at the local farmer's market.  We sold raffle tickets and tried to get people to sign up for our 18th Annual Walk and Candlelight Vigil.  It was a beautiful evening!  By the way I'm selling raffle tickets for a iPad mini.  They are 1 for $15 or 2 for $20.  Let me know if you would like to buy some!


I bought candy corn this week and surprisingly have not eaten the whole bag!  I left it in my car so the only time I can eat it is when I'm driving.  So far that is working pretty well.  Ha!
