high five for friday

1. i love my new hot pink wrap bracelet. the studs make it edgy but the pink makes it feminine. 
2. movies are infinitely more interesting with white wine and edamame. or is that just me?
3. my mom sent me an e-mail the other day with airline confirmation for our family ski trip this Christmas! i’m so excited to head out to colorado and hit the slopes!
4. one of my favorite summer drinks – passion tea lemonade – on a hot afternoon. is it ever going to be fall here?
5. this guy forbid me from opening my computer the other night. as soon as i set it down, he immediately went over and sprawled on it. he made his point.
how was your week? link up below and let me know!

    2. I have never snacked on edamame, but that wine/edamame combination gave me a hankering for it!

    3. JEALOUS.

    4. Girl, I live in flippin' Texas. It's a far cry from California, especially San Diego! :-/ I can't wait for fall!

    5. Smart guy. He was probably thinking, "Snuggle me instead."

    6. Congrats on surpassing 2,000 on GFC! You're flyin' now!

    My Atarbucks just started selling the Tazo Passion Tea in a 6-bag box! It has the directions on the side for the Passion Tea Lemonade. I keep it stocked in my fridge – and it has saved me a lot of money!
