Happy Friday!

Good morning and happy Friday loves. I'm very excited the weekend is here, I have some fun plans this weekend. A long time ago we bought tickets to see Aziz Ansari with our friends, so tomorrow night we get to enjoy a dinner and comedy date night. I have some more fun plans for tomorrow, BUT I won't be sharing those until next week ;) I know, teaser.... 

However, I'm not excited about the fact that I have to leave bright and early this morning to go get an estimate and photos to fix my car. On my way to work yesterday, a guy in front of me at a stop sign backed up to get out of the way of a bus that was turning. All fine and dandy, except for the fact that he didn't see me back there! Crunch. It's very minimal damage though and everything is going smooth so far, knock on wood! Could be worse for sure. 

Anyway, linking up on this lovely but COLD Friday with Lauren Elizabeth for High Five for Friday and A. Liz Adventures and her crew for Five on Friday. 

{one} I finished the Advocare 24 Day Challenge. It was great, I felt amazing and I will do it again for sure one day. You can read my thoughts here. I was happy to be able to eat a piece of chocolate, not going to lie. 

{two} Ok, this is going to sound nuts. I bought my first avocado, ever. I know, I know. I have never been a fan of avocado or guacamole but I am trying to keep trying things, now that I am older to give them another try. Well, I recently became obsessed with guacamole, like craving it. So I bought our first avocado and my sweet hubby made us some DELICIOUS guacamole. I'm going to be making this a weekly occurrence I can already tell. 

{three} I told you in yesterdays Thankful Thursday that we had family in last weekend. My husbands family lives in KS. Our attempts lately to make it up there have failed, so they came to see us. It was such a good weekend. My fave part? Us girls sat at our kitchen table for over an hour doing each others makeup. Our goal was to get highlighting and contouring down. I am not 100% sure we achieved that goal, but we sure had fun playing. We had wine, brownies and ice cream and make up strung all over that table. I just LOVE those girls. 

{four} Kristal and I got registered for the next Mamarazzi class. We missed the one in January and they are only teaching 3 this year, so we were very glad to get signed up for the April one. It's a 3 hour class in our area taught by Jenny Collier and Ashley Thompson. They teach you how to really use your big fancy camera. Kristal and I both have Canon Rebels. While we can take a picture, we want to really know our cameras inside and out and get the most out of them. Can't wait to learn!

{five} Bad blogger, right here. I forgot to take a picture, but Tuesday night I had dinner with my sweet friend Lesa. We used to work together and I don't get to see her often enough. We had a great dinner date at Olive Garden and we were able to catch up on life. Thanks for the dinner date Lesa!
