. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High Five for Friday

March 29, 2012

High Five for Friday

 Dress: Forever 21       Boots: DSW      Necklace: Kohls

1.  I know it's officially Spring, but it is still cold.  So I'm still wearing boots.  


2. Today's outfit gets two pictures and two numbers because this is my new favorite dress. 
I just got it from Forever 21 for $10.  

3.   Remember this necklace I wore in yesterday's post?


My friend and I made these necklaces the other night. 
Although slightly tedious due to poking three little holes in each triangle, it was totally worth it. 
Paint chips, a chain, some jewelry rings, and about 30 minutes and I had a new necklace. 

Read more about how to make it here.  

(Tip: Put the paint chip/triangles on a cereal box or something like that to poke your holes through.  This way it didn't bend the corners of the triangles.)

4.  I had two custom orders for two little families of sock monkeys for Easter baskets.  




Want your own sock monkey? Check out my etsy store.
(I'd be happy to do a custom color/order too!)  

5.  I recently made this for dinner.  
So easy and delicious!  


I already had shredded chicken in the freezer and frozen pizza dough, which made this recipe even easier!

6. Bonus number today because you need to enter my giveaway for a $50 gift card to Shabby Apple if you haven't already! 

Have a great weekend!
