I have to admit, I scoffed at the idea of having Thursday off instead of Friday. But yesterday felt like a mini version of the weekend and I could not be more excited that 8 hours of work is all that stands between me and the REAL weekend. SO. EXCITED.
The 4th of July yesterday was a pretty great day. I woke up relatively late (My body agreed to let me sleep until 8 :00 am, it was a MIRACLE), hit the gym, went swimming at our 2nd family's pool, and then went to a 4th of July party. All in all, a great 4th! How was yours?
I'd been itching for a DIY lately so I stopped by the craft store and made a few bows for us to wear yesterday. They were so fun and easy to make and I've already had a request to make some for a team. Maybe I'll start selling these to fund buying sponsorships on other blogs? 🙂
I've been a giveaway winning machine lately and it's been awesome! First I won this Datevitation coupon book from one my blog besties, Allie at A Day in a Joyful Life right before Father's Day so I used it to supplement my Daddy's gift. He loved all the coupons, especially the one where I said I'd do a week's worth of our families' laundry. Eek.
Then the fabulous Setarra over at Quaintrelle gave away a $25 gift certificate to Groupon, which I won. I cannot tell you how obsessed I am with Groupon, especially Groupon goods. They have this self inking stamp I've been eyeing, a wine decanter, or this triceps crunch rope I could totally use. I'm a total sucker for deal websites.
And since the weekend is upon us, take some time to click through some great posts I read this week!
Ruthy threw a Madmen themed birthday party and it looked awesome.
Ashley gave some great recommendations on how to style shelves. She is my home decor guru!
Stephanie shared a peach upside down cake that looks ridiculously good.
Elle featured a beachy waves spray recipe I can't wait to try.
Nicole has a giveaway for a portable wine cup I'm dying to win! Pick meeeeeee.
How was your 4th of July? Any fun plans this weekend?
Have a great weekend dear friends!
