Friday's Flashback

Happy Friday!

I have no big plans for the weekend and I'm pretty damn excited about it. After a busy week at work, sometimes you need the weekend to recoup and relax. I do welcome some fun with friends but I prefer to run on a non-schedule.

I was excited to participate in Helene's Blog Auction yesterday and think it went pretty well. Thank you for those that placed a bid on my large ad space to advertise for 4 months straight on Martinis & Bikinis. I'm excited to find out who will be featured on my blog for the next several months :-)

This was me on Monday. I did some workouts at home over the weekend and never knew I was capable of kicking my own ass. I was sore and in pain all week but Monday and Tuesday were pretty bad. 
 

The ladies met up after work on Tuesday at a new spot in town called The Porch for some happy hour cocktails and appetizers. It was fun catching and planning a girls trips we want to do next year.

Another Ebates check arrived in the mail. I think it's pretty fabulous getting paid to shop. I signed up earlier this year and have already racked up about $115 in cash back.

Some goodies I scored from the Kate Spade sale last week. I had my eye on a few items and finally decided on a crossover purse (perfect for traveling) and the silver huggie earrings, which look so much better in person.

Lastly, this is so me specifically in the wine department.

Have a relaxing and fun weekend everyone!

Joining Amanda and Lauren today for their weekly Friday linkups.

  1. I really need to start using Ebates. I've had it forever and never use it.

  2. I am signed up with ebates and I online shop CONSTANTLY and yet I never use it. I always forget! I just wrote it in block letters and stuck it to my comp. Maybe now I will remember? Probably not. Have a great weekend! xo

  3. Everyone needs to be using Ebates. Seriously. I get it deposited right into my Paypal account.

    Ooh where are you guys going on your girls' trip? We do the shore every year.

  4. Haha, carrots are seriously the most unsatisfying thing ever. I wish I purchased more things online, I would totally use ebates way more! But I barely purchase things online!

  6. Love your Kate Spade goodies! You'll have to tell me what you thought of The Porch. I still haven't been! And ugh, I wish carrots were as satisfying as wine... not fair. Happy Friday!
