Getting it ready to jam with my favorite five on Friday hostesses:
Normally I'm at work when this link-up goes live but today I'm off and it feels so good. Here are my favorite five of the week:
It's all I can think about. Mint, bourbon and powdered sugar = julip. My friends hanging out waiting for the winning horse to cross the finish line, a rather short wait. AND it's national barbeque month which is enough reason to smoke some pork for our gathering of friends. Surely one of the best days of the year.
This Calvin Klein mascara was a full size freebie for my birthday from Ulta. I have used it for three weeks and I'm really happy with it. The packaging is chic and high quality, the brush has staggered bristles and the formula creates length and curl. I'm not sure if I'd pay $18 for it but it's a fantastic product. I've not had a single clumping issue with it either which is rare for a more "liquidy" mascara. Initially I wasn't sure about the brush because I don't care much for plastic bristles but it does a good job of separating my lashes.
Eating dinner on our porch has been one of my favorite pastimes. We purchased some mosquito curls from Walmart and we've been able to enjoy a few casual dinners outside undisturbed. I'm absolutely in love with how quiet it is in our neighborhood in the evenings.
My husband. Always on my top favorites...especially earlier in the week at Michaels helping me pick out some roses for our entryway vase. Look at that face, he was helpful but not overly enthusiastic about the task. I chose the ones on the left, #firstworldproblem
I do a devotional everyday at lunch. It's a great way for me to connect with God, read a bible passage and say a prayer. I keep a small notebook that helps me answer the thought questions at the end of each devotion. It's based out of Charlotte, NC but anyone wanting a daily reminder of God's love is welcome. The writers cover a variety of topics that every woman can relate to, whether you are single, married, or have kids. It's the best part of my day and helps draw me closer to my loving father. Sign up here if interested, the devotion of the day is sent directly to your email.
