Happy freaking Friday!! I have to work this weekend so I don’t know why I’m so excited about the weekend but I am…LOL!! TGIF I guess? Let’s just roll with it…anyway if you have been reading my blog for any length of Tim then you know the drill. On Fridays I post my Friday Five which is usually just a list of five random things that wouldn’t necessarily make a full blog post but still deserve a mention on the blog. Sometimes I have a theme but most Fridays, today included, it’s just a random list! So here we go…
ONE. I got a new blog design earlier in the week!! I am loving the dots and the whole black and white but still fun and creative look of it! I’m still adding a few things to it but overall I’m very pleased with how it’s turned out! I think I will put the finishing touches on it this weekend…if I have time.
TWO. I started watching Amy Sherman-Palladino’s (creator of Gilmore Girls and Bunheads, two of my all time favorite tv shows) The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and I freaking love it!! I wasn’t sure if I would like it based on what I read about it but it premiered on Thursday and I have binged the whole thing and I LOVE IT!! Congrats ASP on a fabulous new project!!
THREE. Here is a little preview of an outfit post I’m doing next week. I am obsessed with sweatshirts right now and finding fancy ones make me happy! HA! Not only is this sweatshirt super cute but it’s super warm and comfy and I bought a regular size, not a plus size. Hallelujah!! But really though, it’s super comfy and you should buy on while they are still in stock!!
FOUR. I don’t like writing gift guides because I don’t really buy gifts for other people other than my best friends and my nieces and nephews. But what I do know is that a gift card is always a good idea. I always buy a few and keep them on hand for last minute gifts. I always wind up getting invited to a party where there is a gift exchange or a do a secret Santa thing at work and gift cards ALWAYS come in handy. If you need some good gift card ideas you can head to your local Wal-Mart and find the big holiday gift card tree and grab a couple!
FIVE. Where are my Arkansas readers at?? Have you signed up for health insurance for next year yet?? If you are still looking for a good plan then you need to check out Ambetter! Their Open Enrollment is from now until December 15 and coverage starts January 1, 2018. They have many different plans to choose from and you are sure to find the perfect one for you (and your family). This part of today’s post is sponsored i.e. I am getting paid to say this but you should know that I have checked out Ambetter’s plans and they seem really good. As someone who works in health care and have had to use my health insurance on more than one occasion I can tell you that health costs can get expensive fast so a good insurance is so important and you should check out Ambetter if you are in the market for new/different health insurance. Just my tea cents…
Do you have any fun weekend plans??
I plan to relax as much as possible. That’s my standing plan for every weekend. I work like a crazy person all week. When the weekend comes, I attempt to rest as much as possible.

I’m going to have to look into The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel! Picking up a few extra gift cards to use as last-minute gifts is something I should definitely do.
I need to get to Walmart and get a whole bunch of gift cards before they run out! We have so many gifts to get this year – coaches, teachers, etc!
Love that sweater.. the pearls are such a cute addition!

A gift card is always the best gift idea for me. lol! I am lazy to think and buy gifts so card or cash is the only option I have. Love your blog design!
I love Walmart’s gift card display during the holidays. I’ve already picked up some gift cards this year. They have such a wonderful selection.
Michelle Cantu says
I agree! Always go for gift cards and try to add a token gift that makes it all look cute. People really like to choose their own things.
I really like your new blog design! Super cute! I haven’t heard of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel but I think I have to check it out asap because Amy Sherman-Palladino does an amazing work!

I absolutely love the new blog design! It’s super fun and chic!
Amy H says
I love your new blog design! It is super cute!
Gift cards are always a great idea. Sometimes it’s so hard to shop for others.
I was a part of a sneak preview group that got to watch the Marvelous Mrs Maisel and give feedback. I loved the first two episodes that I saw. I need to keep watching to see what happened!

I love getting gift cards for Christmas because I can use it later to buy something that I find that I want that I normally wouldn’t buy for myself.
I love your new look on the blog too.
Love your new blog design! I have always preferred a clean and simple look. And I love your new sweatshirt too. Pretty!

I so want to check out that new show! It really looks like my cup of tea and I love anything from Amy Sherman Palladino.
