Friday's Five

Because the pumpkin patch is on the weekend agenda :)

Hello, Friday!  I am pretty happy to see you today.

Nick was in Denver allll week so it was a long, lonely one over here.  I was actually pretty busy the last few days and participated in all of my single girl activities, but it's obviously so much nicer when he's home.  I sleep like c-r-a-p when I'm here alone so I'm looking forward to catching up this weekend!  Although not sure if there is going to be much time for that - we have a jam packed schedule ahead of us.  Friday night we're celebrating a friends 30th birthday, Saturday we'll be tailgating all day, and Sunday is supposed to be around 75 degrees so you can bet we'll be out and about taking advantage of that!  

On to my five on Friday....

ONE | Thank you, thank you for all of the cruising advice this week!  You guys are the best!  It has definitely made me want to go on a cruise that much more, but we'll see what vacation we end up on ;)

TWO | This was my Wednesday: babysat all day (we survived!), picked Brady up and took him to the dog park for two hours to burn off some energy, came home to get ready and then went to a Junior League new member meeting for three and a half hours.  I was so tired when I got home that I had my last ice cream sandwich for dinner, ha!

THREE | Speaking of the dog park, this is Brady and his best friend Keanu, a two year old Golden Retriever :)


FOUR | I think a leopard belt is a must have in everyone's closet so I went ahead and ordered this one since it's 50% off right now!


FIVE | This was a GREAT read from Jess at The Newly on affiliate links.  I do use them here on the blog and while I have a disclaimer on my sidebar, I've never actually talked about them before.  I'm not trying to keep them a secret or anything like that, it just can be easy to forget that everyone that may be reading isn't a blogger and might not know about some of these things!  Basically, when you click on some of my links to products (like the belt above), I make a tiny commission from that click.  Doesn't matter if you purchase anything, it's literally just from clicking on the link.  And when I say tiny, I mean TINY - we're talking pennies here.  So I'm not getting rich or anything (unfortunately haha) :)  Please check out Jess's post for more information and let me know if you have any additional questions.  I want to be open and honest here at all times!

Enjoy your weekends!!

  1. LOVE the leopard belt! You can't argue when it is 50% off! I loved Jess's post too! I know, I do the same thing with affiliate links. And yes, seriously pennies. Sometimes, I wonder if it is worth the trouble. I hope you have a wonderful weekend at the pumpkin patch!

  2. I'm so glad y'all survived! And about the affiliate links, I haven't read her post yet but I will! I've heard theres been some drama surrounding affiliate links for some time now. I don't have a problem with them at all.

  6. Pretty belt! Can't wait to hear what vacation you end up taking! I was looking into The Shopstyle Affiliate Program but it seemed a little overwhelming. Took a break and I'll get back to it another day. Any tips? It would be nice to make a few extra pennies from things I'm already sharing! Thanks for being so honest!

  8. I love that belt and definitely need to add one to my fall wardrobe this year! I'm not sure why affiliate links are so controversial if bloggers are up front about them. I enjoyed Jess's post, too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  13. Sounds like you are super busy! Hope you have a fun weekend though! I'm curious about the Shopstyle affiliate program - do you like it? I used to use Amazon affiliates, but haven't done much with it.

  14. Glad Nick is coming home! Despite the fact that Kyle and I do work opposite schedules, we've never slept apart since the day he moved in and that was over two years ago. Brady and his friend are just adorable. I just want to spend a day with him :)

    We're going to the pumpkin patch this weekend too!

  15. yay for surviving babysitting :) i have wanted a leopard belt for ages, so thanks for sharing that one!
    loved that affiliate link post. i was talking to a blogger a long time ago and she refused to click on affiliate links, especially when people used them the way that post explains (throwing them around including them everywhere etc etc) but i don't understand why people don't click on them. in fact, i have a post coming up (monday? i think?) and it's one of my points, click on the damn links people. hahaha.
    can't wait to hear about your other vacation ideas!

  25. Hope you get to go on that cruise. It actually make me start looking are short 3-4 night cruises since we have a port nearby . How cute is bray and his best friend. I haven't heard the name Keanu for a dog before but I like it!

  26. I love your honesty on the affiliate posts/disclaimer. It's a must and shows blogger's true colors when they choose to just jam-pack a post with links and never mutter a word of what those links are doing lol. Brady and his bestie are so cute! Enjoy having your guy back home and that gorgeous weather you're having! xx
