Friday Five

1. Thank you all so so much for all your awesome input last week. After giving it some thought I decided to not take my Dallas trip in June because it felt too rushed. Instead I'm going to go somewhere for my birthday in July. That gives me more time to plan it out and save some money so I can go for longer. So now I'm trying to decide where I want to go, any suggestions? I was originally planning Nashville to see Shania Twain, but now I'm thinking I might want to go somewhere I've never been. Should I just do Dallas still? Or should I go visit my friend in New York like I had wanted to do during April but couldn't pick a time to go? Or I'm playing with the idea of waiting an extra week and going to Vegas to see Britney's show when it reopens in August. Have I mentioned how indecisive I can be? If you could go anywhere in the continental US for 3-4 nights where would you go?

2. I'm getting so disillusioned with the job application process. Wednesday I found a posting for a job that sounded so perfect for me it wasn't even funny, so I excitedly spent the afternoon writing my cover letter and tailoring my resume. Thursday morning I woke up to find an email from the company saying they had posted the job by mistake. How does that even happen? Between that and the amount of typos/poor grammar I've seen in postings lately I'm seriously wondering how these people have jobs at great companies in great cities and I don't.

3. Tuesday night while baking cookie cake I burned (burnt?) the inside of my wrist. It doesn't hurt or anything but should I put something on it to prevent scaring? Right now it's just this small light brownish mark, but I don't want to end up with some terrible scar for forever.

4. Don't forget to enter my 2 year blogging anniversary giveaway! I realized yesterday that I only posted a picture of what I'm giving away on Instagram and I'm feeling lazy so you'll just have to go there to see it all for yourself. I realize these items are a little random so I thought I'd explain how I decided to give them all away together. Whenever I see something I love for a god price I buy an extra so I always have a quick gift ready when the need arises. So I went through my little basket of gift items and picked these because the colors are kinda the same as my blog colors. These are all items that I own and love so I know you will too!

5. I don't really have a number five other than to say I hope you have the very best weekend. I'll be working (like always) and spending way too much money before my no spend month starts on Monday.

  1. I'm moving in a week so I say you come to Disney World in July ;) But really, the Britney concert would be TOO GOOD. I burn my fingers all the time with my curling wand, and usually it doesn't scar but if you put vasaline/aquaphor on it it should help clear it all up quickly!

  2. How do they post a job by mistake? Like how does that even happen? I've experienced lots of things like "had to postpone the position" or "had to rearrange duties within the department we already had" etc but I have never run into something posted by mistake. That's WTF.

  3. So confused how someone posted a job as a mistake... so bizarre! lol.

  4. Thanks for reminding me to enter your giveaway!!
