High Five for Friday v. 4

Can you believe it's the last day of August?! For me, it's the end of summer. Classes started next week at the university where I work and I'm going to be working a lot this weekend, as students move in and we have training sessions to get through before opening day on Tuesday.

I can't believe this is going to be my fifth opening weekend at BSU. I've now officially been there longer than I was in college! If you follow me on Instagram, you'll likely see some photos throughout the weekend of our activities.

1. In the past week, we got a lot done around the house, actually the mister did most of it, along with some church friends! But as you can see, I helped a bit last weekend, both painting and removing paint.

2. Who doesn't love a free Starbucks drink? On Monday, I used a coupon I'd gotten for being a Target Red Card holder for a tall refreshers drink.

3. I love the combo of navy and coral, but don't really own much coral colored clothing ((I own plenty of navy things)), so I was happy to look down and realize I had accomplished the combo with my nail polish and hair tie!

4. If you've been around here long, you know I love to upcycle glass bottles, especially wine bottles and it often involves spray paint. But earlier this summer, at a friend's house I spotted a fun idea for holding a candle by placing it in an empty wine bottle. On Wednesday night, we had friends over for dinner so I tried it out!

5. Yesterday, I wore a bracelet that was one of my mom's favorites. Other than my diamond, which was hers, I don't wear her jewelry often. But I do love looking down at my wrist ((or hands)) which look a lot like hers :)

Since things at work are about to gear up for the busiest time of the year, I am excited to say, I have some awesome guest bloggers lined up next week. I hope you'll show them some comment love, give them a Twitter shoutout or Facebook share. Seriously, I am excited for you to read what they have to say!

Don't forget, if you're looking to grow your blog I have sponsorship opportunities available. Sign up for your $5 or $10 spot for next month! If you'd rather not use Passionfruit ads, that's totally fine. Email me and we can chat about other options for sponsorship.

Happy Friday and for those who have a three day weekend, enjoy it!

I'm linked up with Lauren for High Five for Friday.
