Five on Friday!

This Outfit

I'm going to be honest, I've basically been living in this outfit. It is beyond comfy & I'm in love with these shorts

Last year, I thought these were the comfiest shorts ever. Wrong. These are. If it was acceptable, I'd be wearing this at work right now, but I really can't complain too much because I'm wearing boyfriend jeans, sandals, and a v-neck tee. Thank God for casual Friday! And if we're being honest, just #TGIF in general. 

Relay for Life

Tonight I'm walking in the Relay for Life. This year I'm attending as a chaperone for National Junior Society, but RFL has been a part of my life for many years. Since my Grandma Ellen (Miss Ella's namesake) passed away from breast cancer ten years ago, I've been walking in her memory & raising money for the American Cancer Society. If you've never participated, it's an amazing event that honors survivors & commemorates the lives lost to this horrible disease. If you'd like to donate to my school's team, our site will be open all day & through the event.

I'm part updating in Erin's #1000in30 challenge this month! So far I've logged 135 minutes, and I'm confident that I'll get in at least another 100 tonight at the Relay. My goal is to walk at least 5 miles around the track & to avoid all of the junk food that will definitely be present. 

Birthday Presents

I've been so insanely lucky to have received birthday presents from my amazing co-workers this morning! My best friends/co-teachers even bought me a new Alex & Ani bracelet! And everything I opened this morning was on top of my free birthday pizza last night & my free Starbucks this morning! Gotta love those birthday coupons! 



Last thing, I'm going to try and learn to do some new hairstyles this weekend. I feel like I either straighten it & put it in a poof or throw it up in a top knot. It's time to branch out. So, I'm turning to YouTube, Bloggers, IG... basically anything that might teach me something new. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears! 

**linking up for five on friday**


  1. sometimes you just have to rock the comfy clothes. seriously, I didn't get out of my leggings and oversized flannel button up at all yesterday. I didn't even brush my hair. what's wrong with me?! haha

  2. I'm all about those youtube/pinterest tutorials for anything hair and makeup. It's amazing how creative some people are! I mean, it's kind of a big deal if I manage to get mascara on. Hahaha ;) And how cool that you're doing relay for life! My in-laws are super involved with it, and everyone in their little town participates! It's the neatest thing to see their community join together for a great cause.

    I'm stopping by from the link up! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  3. Love the comfies!! I go straight for a pair of yoga pants and oversized t-shirt when I get home from work. And when you master that fab french braid please do a tutorial :)
