5 on Friday

One. Blogging BFFs

One of my favorite things about blogging is the community of women and friendships I've already made. Naturally, I was excited to join a Blogging BFF program when it was offered and to be paired up with two lovely ladies, Andrea and Brooke. It has been so nice to chat with these girls, learn about their blogs, and get to know them. Part of the program was to send each other little gifts and we chose an office supply theme for the first swap. I love little office goodies so was pumped when I got these in the mail.


Two. Book Review


 A few months ago my mom went to visit my great aunt and she returned back with a box of books that my aunt sent for me. She knows I love to read too and we often talk about recent reads when we get together. I was excited to dive into the box of books and found several that I wanted to read. Tucked into the box was this little gem, Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen. Without giving too much away, this book is centered around a recent widow who flees to her estranged aunt's run down resort in rural Georgia called Lost Lake. Her aunt is about to sell Lost Lake and this last summer all of the regulars return. It is a story of lost people coming to this lake where they have had so many memories and uniting over this place that means so much to them. It's a wonderful story of how going back to your roots can sometimes make everything better. If you're looking for a sweet story with some twists and turns but also is tied up so well that you are smiling---read this! Want it now? I will send my used copy to the first person to email (link in sidebar) me their address (free of course). I love book swaps so happy to pass the love along :)


Three. Swagbucks

I've been a long time fan of Ebates (affiliate link) the site that lets you earn cash back on online shopping. However, I've recently discovered an online rewards program where you can not only earn points towards gift cards from shopping online but also you can earn points by taking quizzes, watching videos, and playing games! This past week I've become obsessed with Swagbucks and figuring out how to earn points. I take the daily crave quizzes every day to earn points, follow their twitter and Facebook to get flash swagcodes, and even keep the watch and earn videos on my second monitor and have them playing while doing other things. It's so easy to get points! You can get gift cards to Starbucks, Target, Amazon, and much more. Sign up and let me know how you like it! 

Four. Nordstrom Sale Purchases

I posted earlier in the week about the Nordstrom Clearance Sale and my picks. I ended up picking up the Band of Gypsies Print Shift Dress and the Wayf Midi Overlay Dress for my upcoming Nashville 4th of July trip. I'm happy with them!



Five. Cabrewing

I'm so excited to meet up with my best of friends this weekend for a cabrewing trip! In case you're not familiar that stands for canoeing and brewing---a perfect combination! 

Have a great weekend friends and enjoy the summer it's already flying by!
