friday, sweet friday!

Happy sweet, sweet Friday, kitty-cats!  Today I am linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk for "High Five for Friday!".  I have been following Lauren's blog for a few months now and she has been more than an inspiration for all things fashion and DIY (not to mention she is hilarious!).  I finally decided to jump on her Friday bandwagon and share my top 5 favorite things from this week:

As luck would have it I was finally not the ONLY one in the house craving something sweet last night the roomies and I decided to order cookies from a little gem called Dough-to-Door.  It is EXACTLY how it sounds.  You call and place your order and within about 30 - 60 minutes you have a dozen freshly-baked cookies (any variety of your choosing) and two bottles of milk knockin' on your door.  I'm sure you're thinking "60 minutes?!", but it's just because they don't bake them until you order.  If you're in the St. Louis/University City area I demand you try them, you won't be disappointed  : )
roomies and hound awaiting the sweet treats (yes, that is in fact an all plaid outfit on Teresa over there....)

Tomorrow St. Louis will actually go back down to double-digit temperatures for the first time in about 27 (or so the news says) days.  Who knew I'd ever be so thankful for a 95 degree day??  I'm trying not to look at/think about the middle of next week, just going to bask in the glory of this "break from the heat" we will be getting tomorrow and Sunday.  Okay, that was way sarcastic and these posts are about positive things to actually be thankful for!  So I will end it by saying it looks though that much-needed rain will be in our future as well.  HOLLA for t-storms and temps in the 80's!


I did some MUCH needed cleaning, laundry-doing, organizing at my apartment this week.  I have had these things (especially the organizing) on my to-do list for weeks but just have not been able to find the time; this may be the busiest summer for me to date.  But finally this week I was able to arrange and organize this little make-up/lotion bottles/"anything else I can fit" organizer that I bought at Target about a hundred years ago.  It really is the little things in life  : )

THE ANNUAL HALF-OFF LITERS SALE AT BEAUTY BRANDS.  'nuff said.  My favorite, go-to products are from the Matrix line:  Biolage, Amplify, and Sleek.  Woop woop!


Last but not least, the most favorite part of my week was that I started working for that hunky boyfriend of mine at his grocery store, which I introduced you all to in a post here.  I decided to go from full-time down to part-time at my "9 to 5-er" and start working alongside Tony Monday - Thursday for a few hours at the end of the day.  I love absolutely everything about this store and could not be happier to get to be a part of it, now, four days a week.  The customers are so friendly and you can tell that when they come into Viviano's, they know they are going to find exactly what they need at the best price and quality, as well as pick up some new treasures on the way  : )  My first week has been so great and I cannot wait for what is in store for the future.  Plus, who wouldn't love seeing this adorable face with its Joe Manganiello-esque lip curl everyday??  (you're welcome, dear.)

Happy Friday, people!  Feel free to share what you're thankful for this past week.  Enjoy your weekends  : )
