Five on Friday 2/14

Happy Valentine's Day my sweet friends!!  Hope you get to spend the day giving and receiving lots of love, chocolate and flowers (anything Kate Spade wouldn't hurt as well).  It has been a busy, busy week around here and the coming weekend is looking like the same.  I can't say I'm mad about that because everyday is a day closer to Spring, am I right?!  Here is my five on Friday for this week...

+ What I love most about the blogging community is that it is a community in every sense of the word.  We build friendships, pray for one another and come together to support causes such as #TeamTeddy.  Teddy is an 8 month old who has Menkes Syndrome - an extremely rare syndrome relating to copper deficiencies, that is terminal.  Most children with Menkes don't live past their 3 year birthday and so we are coming together to raise awareness for this syndrome and to help Teddy's family provide him the best life they possibly can.  Visit the Fish family Caringbridge page to learn more about Teddy's story and to help support the family financially if you would like.   #FUMenkes!

**I just want to note that I really wanted to take a picture holding this sign but of course I waited until the last minute to write this post and have no one to take a picture for me and all of my mirror selfies resulted in a backwards sign! #bloggerfail

+ I ordered the book "Love Does" by Bob Goff this past fall and it has sat on my reading pile for months.  I finally picked it up this week and now I can't put it down!  Bob's life story is beyond inspirational and will change your outlook on "how" to love.  If you are looking for a lighthearted read with a great message, this is the book!


+ One of my blogger friends (I can't remember who, I'm sorry!) posted about this L'oreal Boost It Spray last week so when I came across it in Target, I thought I'd pick up a bottle and give it a try.  My pretend motto for my hair is "the bigger the better" but having super fine hair, well it doesn't always work out that way.  Boost It spray is about to change all that because this stuff is the bomb!  My hair has actually been holding a poof - it's a miracle!  I have used Oribe Dry Texturizing spray for years now and this stuff blows it out of the water... and it's 1/10th the price, seriously.  For only $3.99/bottle - TRY THIS!


+ I've been eying the Frye Melissa Button boot for about a year now but I've yet to pull the ($350) trigger.  Yesterday they went on a major sale, down to $227, and I was beyond excited!  I headed to Nordstrom to get them but they didn't have my size and I walked out empty handed.  It was okay though, I could go home and order them online.  And then I get home and they are sold out of my size!  Talk about a heartbreak!  I've been constantly refreshing the Nordstrom website hoping they will restock but I don't have my hopes up.  If you wear a size 7.5 to 11, you are still in luck but they won't last long!

+ Remember a couple of weeks ago when I posted my recipe for the BBQ Chicken pizza and we were all loving it?  Well, I decided to get fancy (not really, they were so easy) and attempted BBQ chicken taquitos... aaand they blew my mind!  Stop back on Monday for the recipe!


Have a wonderful weekend!

  27. Aw sorry you missed your boots, hope you can get them! They look gorgeous but I'm not into shoes/boots so I can't spend that kind of $ on them. Candles though... I know no limits when it comes to buying candles.

  28. Yum those taquitos look delicious! Kind of reminds me of like a bbq version of an enchilada (if you melted some cheese on top). Also, I'm obsessed with Frye boots - just wish I would let myself spend the money on a pair! Glad I ran across your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Those boots are the best! I've had mine for about a year and a half, and they are easily one of my best purchases! Hope you find some soon!
    Happy Heart Day!

  35. Oh my goodness, heartbreak by sold out boots. I've recently had such heartbreak over Tory Burch riding boots. They went on sale and BOOM sold out in an instant. Still grieving!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi girl - stopping by! Can I just say I feel your pain on the boots?? I just had a similar situation with a Lulu jacket that I am dying over...not available anywhere in my size. Not fair! #firstworldproblems Hope you are having a great week!
