Friday Favorites

TGIF!  Happy Friday.  This has been another long week, and I am beyond excited that it is finally Friday.  

I am going to start off my favorites with something that I know is a big favorite of many...Girl Scout cookies!  I placed my order with a co-worker this week and I cannot wait until they are delivered at the end of the month.  Growing up, I was in Girl Scouts, so I always make sure to buy from someone this time of year.  Not to mention they are delicious!  


Grease Live!  This weekend, Grease Live is on TV.  Julianne Hough is playing Sandy, which I think is a perfect match.  Grease is such a classic...I am really excited to see how it works live.


Fixed vacuum.  If you stopped by yesterday, you read about my "user error" problem with the vacuum.  It may be a bit pathetic, but I am excited to vacuum this weekend!   Freshly vacuumed floors make me happy.

New nail polish.  My mom recently sent me my Kindle charger in the mail (thank you!!), because I had forgotten it at my parents' house when I was home over Christmas.  Included in the tiny package was two new nail polishes.  One was a base coat, the other this gorgeous color called, Buy Me A Cameo.  I love the sheen of this nail polish.  It's amazing - I will go to Target, look at all the Essie colors and rarely come home with anything new.  My mom, however, always seems to be able to pick out the best colors.  Buy Me A Cameo is like a gold/tan, almost metallic-looking color.  I don't know how to put it in words, but I really love it.  The base coat is a game-changer, too.  I haven't used a base coat in years.  I didn't have time to put a top coat on my finger nails this past weekend, so I was worried that my polish wouldn't last very long.  However, almost a week later, it still looks great.  I think the base coat is the cause of that!

Probably my most favorite thing of this week, is that after today, work should be slowing down.  I am excited to get back into more of a routine, have time to catch up on all the blogs I have missed reading this week and just relax.  Also, I don't know if I ever actually kicked the bug I had earlier this month, because it seems to be coming back again with a vengeance.  I think some more rest is just what I need.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Linking up with AndreaApril and Amanda.

    I might check out Grease Live...I'm just nervous because all of these shows they've done live just haven't been great. I don't want them to ruin my love of Grease the movie! :)

  10. Girl scout cookie season is always so amazing! I love them so much, and it definitely helps having our nieces around that are selling them this year. And hooray for small packages with goodies from your mom! Moms are always the best, especially when they spoil you with fun goodies!
