High Five for Friday!

I feel like I'm living for the weekend lately! 
There definitely were some fabulous things about this week, though.
I hope you all had a great week and have some fun weekends planned! 

{1} Salted Caramel cupcakes. Almost 2 years ago, I was baking these cupcakes and dreamed up this little blog. I didn't really keep with blogging until a few months ago, but those cupcakes will forever be tied to Sugar, Spice, and a Dash of Advice! :)

{2} This is totally not a highlight but Chris and I both got sick this week... he got hit a lot harder. I took a trip to Target and stocked up on stuff to make us (mainly him) feel better. 

Can we talk about those Edy's pineapple popsicles in the back there? Freaking amazing. I've been eating popsicles like it's my job lately. (I WISH it was my job.)

{3} Staff Retreat for work- this is why I made the cupcakes (like I needed a reason?). Normally I don't talk about work but I just had to say that I work with an amazing group of women. No matter what, we are a team and are supportive of each other. I've been very lucky!
Totally wish I could post a picture because we took some silly ones, but I doubt they would appreciate their faces showing up on my blog. Haha!

{4} Impromptu date night
Chris and I had a random date last night. He wanted to take me out to cheer me up about some crappy stuff that I've been dealing with.. how sweet :) 
We went out to dinner at PF Chang's and then to the mall to buy this game we saw the other day. I am not a huge game person but we played it the other day and he really wanted it. It's a lot of fun and cool to do something different.

PF Chang's was amazing, by the way. Of course, we got lettuce wraps. We were so hungry I didn't think to snap a picture. This was my fortune, though...

Luckily, I already had thanks to some amazing people in my life!

{5} Smell of cinnamon in my house...
Thanks to this cinnamon broom. I didn't even know these existed before dating Chris. His mom always has these in the house around the holidays. They literally fill the house with amazing cinnamon smell for weeks. Naturally, I had to get one as soon as I saw them at Wegman's. I used some leftover fall flower stuff from my fall wreath to decorate it!

I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend! :)
Linking up with Lauren as usual!
