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

November 1, 2012

High Five for Friday

 shirt: gap  skirt: target  tights: kohls  boots: gojane scarf: giveaway from The Tiny Heart

1.  I think I'm getting better at this pattern mixing thing,
and I am loving my new boots!

2.  Friday I will be celebrating my birthday!
I'm looking forward to dinner at my parents on Friday night and going out to dinner with Chris on Saturday. And hopefully a few sweet presents too!


In my effort to feed my love for teen drama, I'm continuing to watch One Tree Hill, but also the new episodes of Gossip Girl and 90210.  Let's just say that my brain is getting a little confused with who is who and what relationship is what.  
But don't worry.  That hasn't stopped me from watching them all.  


4. When I ordered the boots that I'm wearing in this outfit, I also bought a pair of booties and although they fit and are cute, the heel is a little too high for me. 

Therefore instead of returning them, I figured I'd see if anyone wanted them first. 

$15 (plus shipping)
Size 9
Let me know if you're interested!  

5. I didn't eat sweets or desserts for 6 days in a row this week.  That is an extreme accomplishment for me.
I was doing great until my mom brought over these fancy caramel apples.  
At least this is part fruit, right?


And I will definitely be eating some birthday dessert this weekend!

Hope you have a great weekend!

I don't know which is better those 15 dollar cute ankle booties or that de-lish candied apple?! I couldn't have said no to either one!

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

6 days? without sweets? I'd probably actually die.
That bootie heel is a little too high for me too. I need to keep it practical whilst walking around here on ice.
