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

July 12, 2012

High Five for Friday

 dress: old navy  shoes: payless


1.  I got some great deals at Old Navy this week.  Thanks to a 40% off coupon I bought this dress for $8.
I also got a sweet pair of wedges for $4 and a sailboat shirt for $3.
 I'm sure I'll be sharing them next week!


2. New hat and new sunglasses. 
I think I look way cooler than I probably should feel in this picture.
Please don't tell me otherwise.  I rarely feel cool.


3.  Things don't always turn out.
First time - success.  Second time - fail.


Baking failures like this used to make me cry.  Maybe I'm growing up!
And let's not even talk about how desperately I need a new baking pan.

4.  I finally feel like I had a fun week of summer.
After a really rough June, it was nice to relax and actually do things.
I spent Wednesday in Lake Geneva and had such a great time.


Sunglasses, fedora hat and a boat?  Seriously, this may be the coolest I've felt.

5.  Was that an appropriate use of a hashtag? I still don't really understand twitter.
 But want to follow me anyways?

That might actually make me feel cool too.

Hope you have a great weekend!


Pin It!

You seriously look too cool in your fedora, I always feel that way when I can finally pull off a cute hat.
Even when I used to show horses all the time, I loved wearing my cowboy hat.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
Happy Happy Friday!!

Jamie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I was so jealous all week long when I saw your pictures on the lake. You looked so happy and relaxed, which you completely deserved. My mom got the same dress but in blue/green and I was super bummed they didn't have it in my size. Love Old Navy and their killer clearance section :)

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Okay you just need to stop with all these cute deals at Old Navy! I just ended my tribal skirt journey that I became obsessed with thanks to you (glad to say I scored one finally for $8!!) and now this????? I love, love that dress!

PS. I still don't quite get Twitter yet either, but hopping over now to follow you.

I made those brownies yesterday. I don't think I ever even looked at the recipe, just remembered your picture of what they looked like. I watched mine rather meticulously. Broiling disasters can happen to anyone.
I love the yellow swimsuit. And I must hit up Old Navy this week.
