High Five for Friday

Helleur Friday!  It's been awhile..a week to be exact.  A week that feels like it lasted for not one, but two weeks. This Mama is ready for a vacation...but I have to wait another week..

In case you forgot - like I always do - and you've been carrying around Old Navy coupons since Christmas it's now safe to use of yesterday.  They expire Feb 6, so if you've got em, go use em (in-store only) I have been in the store and online browsing...they have some super cute new stuff. 

This week I climbed into the attic, and brought down a tote full of old pics.  I was looking for my old cross country team pics, softball pics, pics of my first car, and my HS graduation.  Trey has been asking about my first car, and I found the pictures in the tote.  He made fun of it.  Ha!  I loved that car.  So what if it was a 1987 Honda Accord with the flip up was cool back then!  I found a lot of old memories buried in that box.  Pictures of my prom, high school days, college days, baby pictures of Trey, and old pictures of my family. Pictures of me with some girlfriends that are no longer here.  It made me smile, and wonder what they would be doing if they had not been taken from this earth so soon.  Thank goodness for totes full of old pictures..sometimes it's nice to reminisce.  Sometimes it's nice to be reminded just how far you have come.

In the said tote of pictures I chose a picture of Nicole and I for throwback Thursday. This picture was taken 11 years ago on my 25th birthday. Trey was a month short of being three years old.  I would have never remembered the day if it weren't for a few other pics in the same pile..I was blowing out the candles on the birthday cake Nicole made me, along with the super sweet card she gave me.  This girl and I have been friends for a long time, and I adore her! Oh, and apparently I'm a hoarder and I keep everything...don't judge.

After sending her the pic this is the convo we had.

Last weekend Trey tried out for a youth archery league sponsored by a gun and archery shop in town. We spent the afternoon shooting his bow.  I always forget how much I like using a bow until I get my hands on one, then I could spend hours shooting it.  Surprising myself with each target hit, and thinking I'm actually pretty good at it.  I'm glad my boy has cool hobbies and that he lets me tag along and play with him.

After archery I took off to meet up with a friend for some shopping...I don't know how we ended up back at the martini bar clear across town <she says so innocently> but we did..  Too many glasses of wine impaired my judgement to not answer a FaceTime call...and I got busted at the bar..not shopping.. 

I picked up some new shades at Target.  I have wanted some aviator style glasses for.for.ever.  I randomly try them on anytime I spot a pair, and they all look ridiculous.  I tried these on, and they worked, so now they're mine.  You know.. since I needed another pair of sunglasses.  

I tried out a new do that Kate from The Small Things Blog shared with her readers.  It's called - easier than it looks up-do tutorial.  It really was a lot easier than it looked, and it stayed all day long.  Easy as in it took me about 10 minutes to get it done, although mine looked nothing like hers.  It was perfect for a Sunday that I did not want to wash my hair before church, but I wanted something other than a ponytail.  You should try it.

Thanks for stopping by to read about my week.  I hope you have a fun weekend, and eat lots of yummy football food for Super Bowl Sunday.  My wheels have been turning planning my football menu! What will you be making?
