Five on Friday - September 8, 2017

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a great week! My week was great - pretty quiet, but good! 


I am so sad about what is happening in the Caribbean - the hurricanes are completely devastating many of the islands! Two years ago this month we honeymooned on Turks and Caicos and spent 2 weeks on 3 different islands and it holds a special little place in my heart! There is some serious storms happening all over the place and it's really hard too see. I know I will be donating to relief efforts - we need to do what we can! 

So, one month ago I started on Weight Watchers. I was really hesitant to talk about it in the beginning (I was embarrassed to talk about it!). But this week it was one month and I am down 11 pounds! I'm already 1/4 of the way to my goal (which is my wedding weight 2 years ago), so I'm glad it is easy to stick to and is working well! I have been making sure to walk a ton as well which is really helping! 


Did you watch the premiere of American Horror Story Cult this week?! Oh man - i'm a bit of a wimp and this season will be all about fear - political, phobias, etc. I like the spin the show is taking so far; but, eeek there is a whole lot of clowns! I also love how each season somehow ties in to each other! So far so good! (picture source)

Also, did you see the announcement for the new Bachelor? Can we get a "waa waa waa" sound - what a lackluster announcement. If they weren't picking anyone recent, why not just pick someone new instead of picking someone no one remembers... (picture source)

My older son, Damian, started Junior High this week - Grade 7!!! How does time go by so quickly?! He is almost a teenager, has bigger feet than me already and is almost taller than me too!! So hard to believe! 


Did someone say more freebies?! I can't so no to trying new products and I like Shiseido so I am looking forward to trying these! 

If you love freebies as much as I do - go to my twitter or facebook as there is a link to a Benefit freebie right now! 

I hope you all have a great weekend - I have a busy weekend with a baby shower, retirement party and girlfriend's dinner! 

This is a link up with Smidge of of This (previously a.lizadventures), Carolina Charm and Hello! Happiness where we can all share 5 things on our mind this week!


  1. I watch The Bachelor too and was not happy with the choice! I barely remember that guy and all I have read since they announced him out of nowhere is how much of a player he is... don't want someone like that for the Bachelor!
