High Five for Friday!

High Five for Friday!

I’m sharing the highlights of my week… five to be exact!  I love the idea of focusing on five little things that made me happy… definitely a fun way to recap the week and  and stay grateful.

1 – New purse.  I was lured into Naturalizer when I saw a 70% off sale, and while I didn’t find any shoes I did find a great purse!  I’ve been on the hunt for a crossbody that’s just a bit bigger, so I can still keep my hands free but not always wrestling with my wallet and planner.  So far I’m super happy with my new bag – a little more wiggle room is nice!

2 – Harry Potter marathon.  We found the eight-movie set on sale recently, so a marathon has been on my mind.  Perfect excuse for a lazy weekend!  We watched movies #1-3 on Saturday but I fell asleep during movie #4, so we finished it up on Sunday.  The Golden Globes delayed our plans to keep going, but there’s always next weekend!

3 – Potluck.  My book club always does a potluck in January as a delayed holiday party.  I’m lame just like last year and didn’t make anything – I just brought store-bought dip and toasted pita.  It was fun to get together again to talk books and eat lots of good food!

4 – Once Upon a Time sampler.  The OUAT mystery sampler premiered last week and it’s been so much fun stitching the first little bit!  Each month has a different fairy tale theme, and for January Snow White is doing some laundry with the dwarves… too cute!  I had lots of stitching time this weekend during the HP marathon and the Golden Globes.  (Also, the GG: loved it! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were hilarious as hosts, and I always love all the fun fashion on the red carpet!)

5 – New makeup.  I’ve been running low on foundation and looking for a change, so I searched a few of my favorite blogs for a new recommendation and went with Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Light (per the Small Things blog).  I really like it!  Smooth and blendable but still lightweight.  While we were in Union Square, we stopped by the new fancy Walgreens for a slushee (Sam’s request) and I noticed that they carry theBalm cosmetics – I got this Hot Mama blush in a Birchbox and really love it, so I picked up a full size.  I love new makeup!

I’m linking up with Lauren Elizabeth for H54F!
