Thank goodness for Friday.
It was a rough week, but I'm really trying to look on the bright side of things.
I'm trying to believe in blessings in disguise.
(if you want to know about other things I believe in, check out yesterday's post)


Five things that have made my life a little brighter this week?

1) Bobby's Burger Palace 
Bobby Flay, to be exact. Um, amazing. If you're ever in the area (meaning: Maryland, near BWI) you have to try it.
I got grilled cheese... I'm not a big burger fan. 

Chris, on the other hand? Biggest burger fan there is.

2) After stuffing ourselves with burgers/grilled cheeses, we were off to the slots
Did I mention it was a Tuesday night? Strange choice, for sure
Chris won us $1.85. Talk about some high winnings! What am I going to do with all that extra money now??

See? We were the only ones who thought this was a good idea on a Tuesday.
Well, we had fun and that's what matters. It was much needed.

3) Loving fall outfits. 
I'm really trying to cut down on the shopping, so I'm trying to work with what I've got!

Except, that blue blazer is new. (Kohl's, Elle brand)
Lace top (also Kohl's, Elle brand)

Chambray: Old Navy, Pants: Express (no, they're not actually leggings.) Boots: DSW (forget the brand, from last year but I saw them again this year)

Pretty sure I only wear the color blue.

4) Nails! I got my Julep Maven box... Here's the polish with Essie sparkles over top
I would tell you the actual colors but that'd require me getting off the couch. Sorry.
If you really want to know, leave me a comment and I'll check :)

I'm disappointed in the quality of these polishes, they chipped pretty easily
Thanks, Leigh for the heads-up... you were right!
Still, the first month's box was only a penny and I cancelled my subscription right after.

5) The calm after the storm
Tuesday was a crazy, stormy day.
Wednesday and the rest of the week was gorgeous, as you can see here...

Last but not least, Kayla @ The Rural Knitter is hosting her first giveaway! I'm giving away a Starbucks gift card so click here to head on over and enter!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.
Linking up with Lauren!

  10. I'm not liking the quality of the polish either! Thank goodness they were next to nothing!
    On another note - I feel like if we were to stand next to each other with our hair in a bun like that...we would look like twins. I'm not joking. Haha!
