1// I love meeting people in real life that I met through blogging! Monday afternoon I got to have lunch with my sweet friend Lauryn! We originally connected on YouTube last year after she became a SAHW and have been instagram buddies since then. We hit it off right away and had NO trouble coming up with things to talk about. 🙂 She suggested we eat at Midwood BBQ in Charlotte – it was so good. The BBQ was great, but you have to order the baked beans (TN friends, they taste like Ridgewood’s beans). I’m so glad to know Lauryn IRL now!
2// I had some Walgreens Register Reward Points burning a hole in my pocket, so I decided to “splurge” on an Essie polish. $8.50 is a lot to pay for nail polish, in my frugal book! I picked up “tuck it in my tux” and it was exactly the neutral shade I was going for. However – I’ve purchased two bottles of Essie polish and both of them have dried really tacky on my nails. I’m curious if that’s typical for Essie or if I’ve just grabbed duds? Anyway, I like the shade so it’s still qualifies for H54F. 🙂
3// My summer food obsession continues. This week it’s been all peaches and corn on the cob. Can’t stop won’t stop.
4// It’s been a busy past several weeks for my hubby, giving us very little time together. Last night we got to spend several hours together while traveling to a meeting he had to attend. Proximity is important to both of us, and the car is a great place to talk and reconnect!
5// Y’all. I took the Fresh in Fifteen challenge. That means I uploaded a video to YouTube where I’m not wearing makeup for most of the time. I’m still in shock. You might be too, after you see my naked face. 🙂 Watch me get ready in fifteen minutes….if you dare.
Have a lovely weekend!
