. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Dear Friday

July 19, 2012

Dear Friday

 tank: target  shorts: loft

wedges: old navy  necklace: ebay

Dear Friday letters. This is my first time participating in you, and I feel like I am betraying High Five for Friday.  Dear Old Navy.  Thank you for having yet another amazing sale and giving me these shoes for under $4.  Dear Lauren in Law. I am jealous of your long beautiful hair.  I'm happy to play with it, but wish I could do the same to mine. 


Dear Target. Please do not remind me that school is starting again soon. I do not care about your back to school deals.  Now if you want to entice me with deals on shoes, dresses and s'mores goldfish you may continue to do so. 



Dear chocolate chip banana bread. In my effort to eat less desserts I am counting you as left over breakfast when I eat you throughout the day.


(recipe coming next week)

Dear Goodwill.  Every time I enter you I feel optimistic and like a thrifty blogger ready to find a good deal and then leave with nothing.

Dear Lovely Readers.  Please do not forget to enter my July Giveaway for a chance to win some sweet prizes!

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

...I bought 30 plastic folders, 10 boxes of crayons, and 5 packs of markers..plus, a binder today. At Target.

Let's not talk about it, lest the depression set in.

(I didn't want them to run out before I got the good deal!)

Abbey said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You seriously find the best deals!! I need you to be my shopping buddy!;)

Chrissy + Nate said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I want that necklace! I see it everywhereeee and it's so cute and versatile! I'll have to look on eBay like you did!

Dear Katie aka Soul Sister!
Love those shorts! You look fab as usual! The offer to play with my hair still stands. I LA LA LOVE me the school supply section and walk around and around breathing it in. Please send some banana bread over and now I'm off to check out the giveaway #idoasimtold Love ya! #youknewthat

Joyce said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those wedges are so cute, I love the bright stripes! YUM, the chocolate chip banana bread looks delicious :D

Michelle said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Check out those hair dos - amazing! Im a bit slack with my hair its long enough to do lots with but Im a bit uninspired in the mornings to do what you have done. Id love it if I had someone style my hair for me each morning, just like when I was little :)

Megan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

There's that awesome necklace again! And, wow, those braids are so cool. I'm always envious of girls with straight hair because you can actually braid your locks without it looking like a mess of frizzy knots :D

Happy weekend!

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I am absolutely loving your shorts!
I'm a sucker for anything scalloped :)

Looking cute as always, girl!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those scalloped shorts are SO cute! I want a pair :) That braid came out awesome..I wish I was better at french braiding. Have a great weekend, Katie!

Sandy a la Mode said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

christina said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I hear you on the back to school stuff ....blahhhh !

Laura said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I want some of that banana bread too!!! Everytime I bake bread I do the same thing - literally slice after slice until before I know it half the loaf is gone and it's only 4pm.

I don't know how you scored those shoes for less than $4. You have some kind of super power!! Cute outfit, as always :)

Tiffany said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You are so cute!!

I feel the same way about school starting... not yet, please! I'm transitioning to teaching and still haven't found a job, so when I think that the start of school is only 4 weeks away, I kind of start to panic. lol

Jessica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

i love those shorts and the shoes are so cute!! they look comfortable too which is always a major plus! and those braided hairstyles are so amazing!!

When do you start the school?
That chocolate bread looks delicious!

Brandy said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hahaha... This was my first time to link up for friday letters also and I also felt guilty for abandoning "High Five for Friday" But hey a little variety is good for everyone.

Jessica.B said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

This is also my first week taking part in the Friday Letters linky. On another note- I too, made the chocolate chip banana bread this week. Didn't last very long though since I have 3 kids & a husband who managed to chow down on it. {lol}

Have a great weekend & feel free to swing by sometime:

Target?!?! Why do they have to remind us that the school year is coming when we are trying to relax? And I completely agree that it would be much nice if they had deals on shoes instead. By the way, I'm in love with your shorts. They are so cute and feminine!

Cathy said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Thanks for always doing my hair. I may show up in the mornings before school and have you do it :) I also made chocolate chip banana bread yesterday because I had a craving for it after you made it on Tuesday.
