Five on Friday - June 17, 2016

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you guys had a great week - I actually had a surprise short work week (my husband had to go in for a last minute 2nd knee surgery so I had to take today and yesterday off to take care of him). It sounds like everything went well this time and it should be fully fixed! 


bath and body works soap

While I was awaiting my husbands surgery I had time this week to shop (I feel like I never actually go out shopping and do most of it online). Luckily for me, I was actually needed to get new hand soap when I happened across Bath and Body Works having a big soap sale - 10 for $30! I scooped up a ton - my favorite scents right now are Peach Bellini and Mango Dragon Fruit!

I didn't pick up too many goodies while shopping; but, I did grab a few that have been on my want list for a little while! I finally got Mac Fix+, a couple new Lush bath melts (and a fresh face mask that I forgot to photograph), Maybelline Gel Eyeliner that I have heard amazing things about, and Herbal Essence Naked Dry Shampoo that is only a few $ so that would be great if it was good! 


I feel like I have been doing really well on my Reading Challenge this year - I'm telling you listening to downloadable Audio books or Audio CD's on my drives have really helped me read a ton of extra books! I'm hooked! 

I finished 3 books this week and you can head over to my Reading Challenge page and see which books I have been loving! Also, do you have Goodreads? I'm always looking for more people to follow and I love seeing what everyone is reading!

I'm soooo excited for Finding Dory - it is released today! I'm taking the family to see it ASAP (hopefully tonight!) Finding Nemo is one of my favorite Disney movies; it is hilarious! Plus this one has a whale shark, a beluga, and baby otters! I can't wait!

I just found out I will be returning to shift work this Summer - I have been is a Monday-Friday position for the past 3 years as I have had a secondment position in my workplace. I will be back working a 6 day on, 3 day off rotation. I am actually looking forward to a little more "me" time, but will have to be on opposite shifts from my husband for a while (we work together in the same building). It will be a bit of an adjustment as I have felt like I've had a "normal" schedule for the last little while! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm looking forward to a quieter weekend than the last few I have had! 


  1. Sounds like you've had a busy week! Lovely post! x

  2. I feel for your husband having to have another surgery. I had one last summer and I am still recovering. I hope he heals quickly! I recently grabbed ten soaps too...I love Peach Bellini. Perfect for summer! I haven't smelled Mango Dragonfruit, so I'll look for that next time. :) Can't wait to see Finding Dory, hopefully in IMAX 3D!!

    1. THanks for the kind words - we are hoping a quick recovery this time! Yes, Peach Bellini is so good! One of my favs!

  3. Love the new look of your blog!
    Hope your husband feels better soon and that is an amazing B&BW deal, I need to get me some. Hope the deal is stil on!!

    1. Thanks Leonie! It's still a work in progress, but I'm really happy with the new look! Yes, go get some soaps!!!

  4. Curious to know your thoughts on that dry shampoo! I love their Naked line of products. I work shift work as well and if definitely had pros and cons. Glad to hear your husband's surgery went well.

    1. So far so good - the best part of the dry shampoo is the smell!!! And it has very little white cast which is awesome!
