Make Me Up Mia: A Lifestyle & Beauty Blog: Five on Friday.

Five on Friday.

Friday is back ladies, who wants to share a glass of wine with me tonight? I wish we really could, virtually?

Dustin and I are off to KS this afternoon for a weekend spent with family celebrating someone special, which brings me to my first spot on my Five on Friday post! 

My longtime childhood friend married my husbands brother last year, they are pregnant with their first child and we're celebrating with a baby shower this weekend! I always knew I'd be honorary auntie Mia to Kelley's kids, but now I'm actually going to be their aunt! They aren't finding out the gender, so it'll be a surprise for everyone, but this baby will be LOVED! I can't wait to hang out with everyone this weekend and celebrate.

Kristal and I attended the Mamarazzi class Saturday. It was awesome and I feel like we learned exactly what we needed. We can now shoot in manual mode which means I can take pictures anytime and not just during the day in front of the windows, annoying. The class is taught by Jenny Collier and Ashley Thompson. They are now going to be hosting their first webinar class tomorrow, but I'm sure they'll be doing more. It was a great class and learning experience, I'd highly recommend it! 

I got a fresh new do for spring, I chopped about 6 inches off. It feels so light now! So far, I'm loving it. Anyone have any good humidity/frizz recommendations? I don't wear my hair down often, the slightest hint of humidity causes a Chia pet like reaction. I know we've all seen this, but I have to share because it cracks me up and it's SO ME! Ladies, help

I've been wanting and thinking about a blog redesign for months now and I finally got the ball rolling earlier this week. I'm not going to go into details on why, but I need a fresh start, a new look and a new designer. I'm working with someone new and I think it's going to be a very good thing. Hopefully within the next couple weeks my site will have taken a good little turn. I'm excited for upcoming changes. 


Kristal and I had a nice little dinner last night at Panera. We have LifeGroup on Thursdays but our other friend couldn't make it this week, so we opted for a girls dinner date. Love our time together! We shamelessly took umpteen pics in front of this pretty tree in the parking lot. 

I'm linking up today with Lauren Elizabeth for High Five for Friday and A. Liz Adventures and her friends for Five on Friday and Jennie for Friday Favorites

Have a good weekend my sweet friends.


Anything fun going on this weekend?

  1. Okay I realize I am blowing up your inbox and I apologize now! First of all I am SO jealous you and Kristal get to hang out! I want to join! Second, Kristal is wearing my earrings! SWOON! Third, can you teach me how to use my camera? I am still frantically shooting in front of windows before the sun sets. Enjoy your weekend, doll. So excited about your blog redesign!

  3. Ah, I wish I could take that mamarazzi seminar!! I need some serious help with my photography skills! But I can't tomorrow. Boo. Maybe they'll have another online seminar *fingers crossed*

    Your hair looks great -- and I highly recommend the Fekkai Glossing Cream to help frizz. It is AWESOME and you only need the smallest amount. (I have suuuuper thick hair and a tube can last me a year.)

  4. Girl, I started my post off today complaining about sun time {as I like to call it} because I can only get good pictures when the sun is out! I need help!!! And I haven't seen that picture and it seriously has me laughing out loud. I can't tell you how often I feel that way! Can't wait to see your new design! Have a great weekend, pretty lady!

  6. I have the same problem with frizzy hair in humid weather. I get Yuko straightening done every six months which helps with the frizz and makes my naturally wavy hair silky straight. I would recommend it if you want straight hair. Looking forward to seeing your new blog design.
