100!, Future Link up, And Five on Friday #2!


It's Friday again! For most, that means the weekend. My "week" is just starting - it's my weekend to work, boo! But, I do have some pretty fabulous things for my second Five on Friday post!


#1 - One hundred! This week, I reached 100 followers! I know that may seem measly to some, but I never imagined when I started this that I would have anyone even interested in what I had to say! I am so thankful for all you pretty girls who read my blog! To celebrate, I am going to host my first ever link up on next Tuesday, Novemeber 26th! To link up, just post one of your favorite blog posts from the week before! It can be about anything - a DIY, recipe, fashion post, etc! I'll ask you to grab my button as well - I can't believe I was tech savy enough to even make one. Then, for the link up the following Tuesday, I will pick one or a few favorite posts, and feature your blog on mine! Nothing like free blog advertisement, right? Keep November 26th in your minds!

#2 - Sephora's jumbo water proof eyeliner in "dark taupe shimmer". I bought this on a whim, and I absolutely love it! It stays on all day long, and is the perfect color! It goes on very smooth, and has just the right amount of shimmer. Its $10 at Sephora.
#3 - I wrapped gifts this week, and tonight I found my pup had eaten a gift bag, packing tape, and was working on this roll of Christmas ribbon. Seriously, can I not turn my back for two minutes?! I feel like I am watching a 2 yr old human, not a dog!
#4 - Uh, have you been in this store? You can find such great bargains! You do have to pick through some junk - I feel like this is normal for most bargain places. I have found so many holiday decorations here that look so similar to those at Hobby Lobby, for less than half the cost! If you haven't been, I think you should!
#5 - I spent several hours this evening starting on a scrap book for one of my mother in laws Christmas presents. Scrapping is one of my favorite hobbies; well, besides blogging :) . It totally relaxes me, and lets face it, I can catch up on all my shows simultaneously!

Have a happy weekend everyone, and don't forget about the Favorite Post link up on November 26th!

  2. Congrats on the followers!! My dog would be doing the same thing. She's crazy about paper! They're worse than children! I wish we had a Christmas Tree Shop near me! It's sound so cool! Have a great working weekend.

  3. Congrats, very exciting (I need to follow, I am terrible at clicking follow!)! I am always looking for eye liners that stay put all day, so I will have to try that sephora one, thanks!

  4. That sounds like a fun link-up, I love seeing what blogs other girls are loving! I keep hearing about that store in the blogging world but I had never heard of it before! It sounds like it has a bit of everything! I used to love scrapbooking but haven't done it in a few years! Seeing your post makes me want to start up again! I started one for my husbands birthday a few years ago and definitely have a lot of catching up to do!

  12. Congrats on 100 followers! That is exciting. Can't wait for the link up. Oh, and my pups are really good at destroying everything too. Christmas is a ... difficult time in our house with the tree and presents. They just can't stay out of trouble!
