Five on Friday

I have been going back and forth with how to approach my Friday posts: do I do a links and loves post, a favorite pins post, a recap of my week post, not do anything at all? I'm still not sure, but until I figure it out, here's a Five on Friday Post. 


Five things that made me HAPPY this week

1 // I have been using the cleansing balm that I received in my February Popsugar box and my skin feels so hydrated! Granted I would never pay an absurd amount for a beauty product, unless it was the holy grail of products, but it was nice to receive such a luxurious product.

2 // Thanks to the gift card in my Popsugar box, I bought my first Victoria's Secret Bra in over ten years. I'm a busty gal and gave never been able to fit their bras, but now they actually carry up to a size 40 DDD and they fit ah-mazing. Sure, they are a bit pricey, but what GOOD bra isn't? 

3 // I finally officially joined the Windy City Blogger Collective, and I am super excited about it. I would love to make blogging a part-time job instead of just a hobby, and I believe that this the fist step for me. 

4 // I made appointments to go see a pain management doctor, and the appointment is the first week of March. My back has been hurting more than normal- almost to the point of not being able to walk and I decided that it was time to see someone. 

5 // Puppy kisses. Valentine's Day Roses. Cuddles from Lil Man. 

Four goals for the upcoming week

1 // Work on the budget
2 // Continue the purge; selling what is in good condition & donating things that aren't meant to be sold
3 // Finish all laundry and cleaning on Saturday, so I can spend Sunday giving the hubby and Lil Man my undivided attention
4 // Schedule two blog posts for next week

Three things I'm looking forward to next week

1 // The hubby's birthday is on Monday and we are going to lunch/dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. 
2 //  Doing our taxes. 
3 // Warmer weather

Two favorite blog posts of the week


2 // You matter. And so does your story | 34 Magnolia Street

One book to read

1 // I am Malala | Malala Yousafzai
