Friday Favorites!

This week got overpowered by work. I didn't leave my office until 7pm most nights. I'm really hoping it starts to calm down, but in marketing/advertising my extra job load is unpredictable. It's keeping me busy and not snacking (On par to lose that 5 pounds for my June goal), but I'm exhausted. I'll have to get my groove back!

This week is jam packed with a double event on Saturday. My life runs like this constantly. I'll say yes to something in March then find out 2-3 more things are happening on the same day in May. At least it's all happy things this weekend. =)

Bridesmaids, the movie - Love this one! 

1. A Friend's Bridal Shower!

My friend Cathleen's bridal shower is Part I on Saturday. I will admit I fell out the late 20 something/early 30 something wedding marathon for a while. It was almost ridiculous. Every year we had 4-5 weddings to go and all the extra activities.

Let's just say I have a pretty hefty dress collection by now.

I know this picture is a little off center but I just love the happiness my god-daughter has in this shot. Even on a little dragon kiddie ride her smile is genuine and so catchy!! When I've had a bad day I try to remember the little things and the pure joy that one can have!

2. My goddaughters' Dance Recital

I can't wait for Part II of Saturday night.  I did dance for years when I was little and I'm finally on the other side of the stage. When I was younger there was pretty much two choices for girls - Soccer or Dance. My parents choose dance for me and I have such wonderful great memories from it.

 I don't get to spend much time with my god-daughter so I'm super excited to see her and I hope she has a wonderful time dancing her little heart out!

Wreck it Ralph 2 - The infamous princess scene! I was sold on the movie from here!
I finally look like a Disney princess. lol.

3. DISNEY!!!!!

I'm going to Disney!! AHH!!! I'm so excited and I can't even deal. I haven't been to Disney since I was 17 with high school. One of my friends and I decided enough is enough with the daily grind...we're heading out of here! We're heading to Walt Disney World mid July and I need to meet that mouse!! It's been wayy to long!! =)

I'm going to start using Inbox Dollars like crazy for the next month to make a couple extra bucks for the trip! The best part of Inbox Dollars is you don't

4.  Forever 21 + Plus Sizes

Plus size clothing is a battle. No plus size lady is the same and sometimes the clothes are a disaster. It'll fit your boobs but not your shoulders, it'll fit your thighs but not your waist, ugh it can be a nightmare. Forever 21+ is actually helping some of my swimsuit and cute clothes issues without breaking the bank.

Also Forever 21 has cash back on the app Dosh. I got 5% cash back AND a $10 bonus for the first time using the app in Forever 21. That makes me happy. =)

5. Zoo for Sunday!

So my husband Craig and I have a thing that we do every time we travel. We try to visit the local zoo for a day or at least 1/2 a day. This mini tradition started three years ago and we've been doing it ever since! We've been to the Bronx zoo but never the Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo together! I used to go with my grandparents all time. I'm really hoping we make it there this weekend!
