Friday Favorites

Favorite Moments:
I actually started drafting this post on Monday because this week started off awesome!  Last week I had mentioned that I had won an interview/sponsorship opportunity with Helene @ Helene in Between, well Monday she emailed me to tell me it went live!  You can read it here!  Huge thanks again to Helene!

Another favorite moment this week was FINALLY closing on our construction loan and the building permit was approved (for a mere $1,500, what!?) so now we are all set to start BUILDING OUR HOME!

and this me reacting to both of these things... soooo excited!! One big hurdle crossed! Bring on the next.

Favorite Purchase:
I cooled it on the online clothing purchases this week, but I did need a new mascara.  The one I bought I'm loving... its this Maybelline Rocket Volum' Express.

and I know we alllll do this...

Favorite Thing I'm Looking Forward To:
It's my birthday weekend!! Turing the big 2-8 and for once, not feeling down about getting older!!  Looking forward to the Wine & Jazz fest on Sunday with Joe, Jessica, Mike, and my mom.  Hoping maybe to get a nice dinner or a little gift from Joe.  Also waiting to get my Lucky Brand Miller Wedges from my mom!

  1. My husband's friends recently just bought a plot of land and are now meeting with builders to build their dream home. It seems so much more stressful than the traditional house buying process we went through. I can't wait to read about your adventures as your home is built!
