It’s Friday and you know what that means…it’s time for the FRIDAY FIVE!!! If you are new to these parts then you should know that I reserve Fridays to talk about five random things and today’s five is no exception. Completely random but completely blog worthy. Let’s get to it!
ONE. I am going to the beach next week and I am sooooo excited!!! I haven’t been on a true beach vacation in a couple years…2012 I think?? So this trip is long overdue!!! And I guess technically it’s not a “beach vacation” it’s a “family vacation to see my oldest niece graduate from high school”. Luckily for me my oldest brother and his family live in North Carolina so everyone that is going rented a big beach house for a week and I can’t wait!! Some people are flying but my sister and niece are driving with me. Or I guess I should say my sister and I are driving and my niece will be binging Barbie on Netflix. HA!
TWO. I have been obsessed with reading Money Diaries on Refinery29. Basically it’s just a 7-day diary submitted by millennials from around the country and it’s about what they spend their money on every day. It also includes what city a person is from, how much money they make, what bills they have, etc. It is super interesting to see how people spend their money. See also- I am super nosey!!!
THREE. In my “going to the beach” prep I purchased a couple swimsuits from Swimsuits for All and actually would up LOVING both of them. I recently decided that I prefer the bandeau look over my traditional halter swimsuits and these two suits are seriously amazing. the prices were on point, shipping was super fast and they carry all swimsuit sizes from XS-plus sizes!! I think the rainbow colored stripe suit is my favorite, even though the plus size suit came with two GIANT shoulder straps instead of the smell bandeau strap that is shown in the photo. WHY??? Ughhhhh. But I also have some serious love for this black fringe suit, it sucks you in at all the right places if you know what I mean!! These will definitely be making their appearance at the beach next week and my pool all summer!!!
FOUR. I am getting my house ready to be put on the market and I am actually having fun decluttering and getting everything cleaned out. It’s kind of sad thinking about selling the first house I ever bought but I’m also excited about not having all that”homeowner” responsibility hanging over my head all the time. Ugh.
FIVE. I was feeling kind of creative the other night so I whipped out this wreath. I have had that red white and blue mesh sitting in my “craft drawer” for a couple of years (and I always have a few wreath forms laying around from back in my wreath making days) and decided to finally do something with it. I actually made a
terrible tutorial on how to make a curly mesh wreath a few years ago that you can check out it you want to make one of your own.
And that, my friends, is my Friday Five!!
What are you up to on this fabulous Friday??
