Five for Friday

Hello and welcome to my Five for Friday! I am linking up with Cup of Tea , Della Devoted , and Bright on a Budget!

1. It's been a busy week around here! Work has been kind of crazy, we've been having problems with equipment, supplies have been back-ordered, as well as some other annoying stuff. Sometimes a bunch of little things going wrong is worse than one big thing. It's all just enough to drive you crazy! On top of all that it's been pretty hot around here. It's been in the 90's and it was 100ยบ on Wednesday. It's supposed to cool down this weekend though. Anyways, I am excited for the weekend! 

2. I received my Target beauty box yesterday as well as the mens' box I ordered for my brother. I'm excited to try everything inside! I'll have a review up soon!
3. This past Wednesday night, the small group at our church had a barbeque. My brother and I went and it was pretty fun! It was nice getting to meet some new people and chat with others that we already knew. It's been SO hard trying to meet people here so it's nice to have a group to attend to try to get to know people. And the salad I brought was a big hit; it always makes me feel good when people like my cooking! :)

4. This was too funny not to share. My brother ordered a finance textbook from the Amazon marketplace, and the book never showed up. He ended up getting his money back, but one month later he gets a beat up envelope in the mail with this odd CD inside.
There was no note or explanation or anything. The CD case is broken and the CD has some scratches on it. We can't figure out why they sent the CD. My brother thought maybe it was shameless self promotion for them? Revenge for getting his money back? Anyways, it's so strange! 
5. In case you missed it, I shared the super disappointing May Ipsy Glam Bag review, as well as some spring flowers pictures.
Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. I love mail day! So fun! Beautiful flowers!


  2. How random about the CD! I had an issue in college where I didn't get a textbook that I ordered, but the seller was pretty hilarious in our e-mail exchanges (he was a college kid too), and we wound up becoming Facebook friends! HAHA! That may be even more random than the CD! ;D

    Meeting people is SO hard! Once you're done school, it's such a chore! And I tend to be disappointed by beauty box/bag services, so I'm glad I never signed up for Ipsy. (I definitely got that facial cleanser from Birchbox ugh.) The little bag is super cute though! Hope you're having a great weekend!

  3. Me too! I love getting fun things in the mail! And thanks! Flowers are one of my favorite things to photograph, they're always so pretty! Hope you have a great week!

  4. I know, right? It's just so weird! That is too funny! That is probably more random than the CD! Haha!

    Exactly! I work for a super small business, where it's typically just me and my boss and two part-time employees, so my work certainly doesn't help for trying to meet people! My brother is super social and one of those people that other people just gravitate towards and want to get to know, so it helps to have a group I can go to with him!

    I do really like the Ipsy bags, they're really well made and fun. I love having a bunch of little bags to store stuff in. I got the preview for the June bag and I'm getting much better stuff this time, but hopefully I won't get any more bags like last month! I hate feeling like I wasted my money!
