{five on friday}

Happy 2014, everyone!! I can't believe I have to go back to school on!! In a way, I am ready to be back into a routine (10 days of school and then we're off for MLK!) but in other ways, I am no where caught up on my sleep. #firstworldproblems.

You can join in on this fun link up with Christina @ Carolina CharmNatasha @ Hello Happiness, April @ A Liz Adventures, and Darci @ The Good Life.

I have been wanting an iPad of some sorts for about 1.5 years-2 years. I literally work 7 days a week between all my jobs anf have made decent money this break serving to pay for it. Therefore, on Wednesday night, I went and treated myself to the iPad mini. I am so excited to use it. I hopefully won't make any other big purchases like this (other then spending $800 on my car last week) to save some $$!

I was suppose to babysit my nieces and nephew today (like I did yesterday) because my brother & SIL had to go back to school and their kids were off til Monday like me. However, we got hit with the winter storm Hercules and school is cancelled! I was excited to have a day off (I need to finish organizing my closet) and really excited because I am not working tonight. :) Happy snow day to me!

 With it being a new year, I like to start it off on a bang! Haha. I am currently bored with the color of my hair. I had bright blonde hair as a child and as I got older, it got progressively darker. When I was in college, I dyed it for the first time. I have done all forms of brown but this time I am going a reddish brown tint. I am excited to see how it comes out and of course, I will share on the blog.

Everyone and their mother is talking about the Naked 3 Palette. I am the type of girl who usually buys her eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, etc at CVS or Target (usually Target because the drugstore is more expensive!). But I have seen so many people raving about the Naked 3 Palette. Every store I have gone to has been sold out of it (it's a hot ticket item!) so I am ordering it for myself.

I haven't seen my best friend April since she was home in August. She moved last April to Ocala, FL to work a new job as a court reporter for the paper. I wanted to visit her on my Christmas break but she ended up getting sick and February wasn't looking too promising because she has trials she has to cover. So looks like I will be spending a few days in April in the Sunshine State!! Can't wait!!

Since it is my puppy Lily's first snow storm, I am off to play with her in it. She LOVES the snow!! Happy weekend!


  1. Stumbled across your blog from the 5 on Friday linkup and wanted to say Hi! I love "meeting" fellow New Yorkers who love the south just as much as I do!

    Hope you're not snowed in for too long (although a snow day here and there aren't too awful), and have a great weekend!

  2. Have fun playing in the snow with Lily! I don't know how y'all deal with all that snow.. I think I would be a hermit. :)

  3. I think I need the naked palette as well!
