Five Things Friday

I can't believe it's already almost July! Summer will be in full swing pretty soon. Here are some blanks to start off your Friday:

1. Some scents I like are citrus and coconut and my favorite perfume is right now I am liking "Ribbon" by Mariah Carey and "Curious" by Britney.

2. Some smells that remind me of summer are elephant ears (from summer festivals/fairs), bbq smoke, and chlorine from swimming pools.

3. A smell that other people seem to like that I don't is new car smell! It makes me feel a little carsick after a while!

4. If someone was super smelly would you tell them? Not unless they were a close friend!

5. I would totally buy an air freshener that smelled like Jo-Ann stores. I love the craft store smell lol!

**My favorite thing from around the web this week is this cool illustration. I never knew how to do any cool shadow puppets and in addition to that being a neat poster, it would be cool to try these!

Have a splendid weekend everyone!

Five Things Friday

These days all I have on my mind is work and all the stuff I still need to do for my upcoming wedding.  Definitely starting to feel overwhelmed but I can't wait for my wedding day to get here so I can finally relax and see everything I've worked for come together!  I'm sure once it's all over I will find myself with a ton of free time and I can't wait!  Today's post is a bit random, it's about what we do in the shower.....

1.  I usually shower in the morning (morning, afternoon, night, whenever) because it makes me feel like my day is beginning.  I work from home, so keeping up with this morning routine really helps me start my work day at a certain time each day.

2.  I sometimes (always, sometimes, never) sing in the shower.  Why is it that we all sound 100x better singing in the shower??? 

3.  When I'm in the shower I always think about all the things I need to do and how I'm going to do them.  If I have to call someone, have a meeting or need to send out an email I will go through what I will say/write. 

4.  I use liquid (liquid or bar) soap in the shower!  I have both and sometimes I use them both because I just really like soap but I prefer liquid soap!  Mostly because I really like using a bath sponge and the liquid soap works way better with it!

5.  I like to shower with hot (hot/warm/cold) water because I just like the heat!! I only like hot water on my body though, if I'm washing my hair and face I will turn down the temperature to luke warm water. 

**My favorite thing from around the web this week this Mexican Inspired Dinner, it's complete with recipes and DIYs on how to make tortillas, strawberry margarita cupcakes, cutout placemats and drink flags!! Too cute!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Five Things I Love About My Dad

Seeing as I forgot to do Five Things Friday, mostly because I was out of town, I thought that to make up for it I would do a "Five Things I Love About My Dad" post, seeing how it is Father's Day today and all :)

1.  He always believes in me.  Even at times when I have felt down on myself in school and work he has always been the one that pushes me forward.  He always believes in me even when I don't believe in myself.

2.  He is super dedicated.  This is one of the things I admire most about my Dad, he is so dedicated in everything he does it's really inspiring.

3.  He is super level headed.  My Dad always thinks things through and comes up with solutions to things in such a logical manner.  He rarely gets mad unless it's something super extreme!

4.  He is super humble.  With all of the things my Dad has achieve he continues to always be the same person.  I think this is one of the best lessons my Dad has taught me, is to always be humble :)

5.  He can always make me smile.  Even though some of his quirks make me mad sometimes, he always knows how to make me smile.  He does the silliest things sometimes :)

Happy Father's Day Dad!!

Thank you for inspiring me each and every day and believing in everything I do.  Love you,

Five Things Friday

For the first week of June, we finally got some full-on summer weather that actually seems like it's lasting. Tell us about some things you like about summer in this week's blanks!

1. A great way to relax on a hot day is reading a book outside or cooling down in a pool/river!

2. My favorite foods for summer include anything BBQ'd, cold desserts, and watermelon!

3. Summer is the best season to surf, go floating, have picnics, and go to various festivals.

4. Sunny, warm days mean outfits that consist of fun shorts and cute comfy dresses!

5. This summer I plan on just doing all of the above...nothing too special or out of the ordinary planned this summer for me!

**My favorite thing from around the web this week is how fun would it be to have a hanging bed for the summertime?!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
