Friday Bits

-It's Friday....hallelujah. I know, it's summer...and everyday is like a Friday for me. But, my husband will be home, it's the weekend--everyone's's a whole different feel.

-I'm head-over-heels for headbands lately. I keep finding myself perusing stores for the cutest headbands there are, but of course, always looking for a cheap deal. I just spent some time on Etsy and am currently in love with this:

To see more of her here
(ps: i don't know this girl from adam--but her headbands are to die for)

-Has anyone ever been to Christmas Tree Shops? It really has little to nothing to do with I found out last year while looking for an artificial tree. It has the most random, fun things ever...and I literally could just walk through that store finding odds n ends for hours. Today, I found a fun rock-star graphic tee for $2.99. I will say, that is the first time I've ever found an article of clothing there...ever.

-Head over to Angie's Blog and donate $5.00 toward the adoption of her little girl from China--you have the chance to win a Wii...!

-I stopped at GoodWill today...always on the hunt for something cute, something functional, something you can't just find anywere....and I found this:

I thought I could use it in my kitchen someplace...and well, I just like it. Again...$2.99. (What is it with me and that price today?)

-I'm off to a wedding tomorrow a few hours away. My dress was originally $168.00. I would die before I spent that much on a dress. It was marked down to $13.99 at Ross. It's gorgeous, I love it. What do you think?

-I was overly annoyed by other drivers today. People pulling out in front of me, being super aggressive in parking lots, not looking where they're going...what the heck is going on out there today?

-I finished my last grad class for a while! I have 15 credits under my belt. I cannot believe I'm halfway there and I started in January. I'll be giving myself a break to get the school year up and running, then back to it in October.

-I saw some of my students at Wal-Mart yesterday, and oddly was delightful. I had missed their cute faces more then I realized. I'm getting excited for the school year to start.

-Jason Mraz concert on Sunday, woot woot!

-Keep praying for my sister, mom and little brother who are in Zambia, Africa right now on missions. Read about how the trip is going here.

Happy Weekend!
