Five on Friday: A Link-up!

Hello Friday! Boy am I excited to see you! You know what else I’m excited about? My FIVE..!

– ONE –  Recently I’ve become obsessed with lemonade – rosemary lemonade to be more specific. As soon as I bring home a new bottle of Simply Lemonade or a gallon of Chick-fil-A lemonade, I pop in a few sprigs of fresh rosemary and let it marinade for a few hours. 

I promise this is the best combination of the summer. In fact, I guarantee it. 

And on Friday’s I jazz up my cocktail with a splash of Firefly Sweet Tea vodka. 

– TWO – With all the rain we’ve had lately, I’ve decided to revert back to my naturally wavy hair. I recently order a bottle of Mop Top, a gel specially made for dry, frizzy hair at the recommendation of a friend. Her hair is always perfectly wavy so I had to try it. Thumbs up!

– THREE – Our Shark arrived last night! Being lab parents, we are forced to vacuum our house daily, sometimes even twice a day. So when our cheapo vacuum bit the dust we spent an entire afternoon reading vacuum reviews and finally decided on the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe! I’ve never been more excited to vacuum! By the way, I officially feel old {and lame} for being excited about a vacuum.

– FOUR – I know, you are all so shocked that I am blogging about coffee – again! But this time it’s even more serious. After recognizing how much we splurge on coffee daily, Matt and I decided to pay for the bottomless mug at Bruegger’s. So for the rest of the year we have access to unlimited coffee/tea/soda. Every afternoon I’ve been grabbing a cup of Iced Coconut Coffee. I’m addicted and it’s unlimited so I don’t sleep at night anymore.

– FIVE – Matt and I are heading to mountains this afternoon to celebrate the wedding weekend of our dear friends, Tim and Kristen. We are beyond excited to see these two tie the knot and the wedding is going to be insanely beautiful. Pictures to come!

    I almost stopped reading at "firelfly sweet tea vodka" so I could run to the store, but realized it's only 7 a.m. and I have a toddler in tow. Ughhh! 😉 ;)That lemonade looks AMAZING. Don't you know I'll be trying that tonight {with the vodka of course… because it's Friday and all}. And I've never heard of purchasing a "bottomless" cup at a coffee house! That's awesome. I'd be stopping by several times a day and not sleeping either! Hope y'all have a great weekend…. I haven't caught up yet on your trip this past weekend to the mtns (and I'm dying to see more of Charlie in his shoes — ahhhhh!!!). Have a great time, dear! Cheers to the weekend!

    That wedding invitation is gorgeous! Can't wait to see pictures from the wedding. And no, you are not lame for being excited about a vacuum cleaner. I feel your pain about having to vacuum 1-2 times daily.

    OOh please do a vacuum review. Our old bissell pet has bit the dust and we are shopping a new one. I also lean towards Dyson but have heard great things about Shark.

    That vacuum is the best! We have a Shark Navigator too and when we first got it my hubby and I used to argue over who got to vacuum. It's that great!! 😉 (but, unfortunately, that argument HAS since ended ;-))

    Rosemary lemonade? We have a few rosemary bushes, so I am totally trying this! Sounds refreshing. I'm drinking coconut mocha coffee right now. I love it! Who needs sleep anyway?! We have a huge gigantic yellow lab and his fur is all over the house. I vacuum daily too, especially in the high traffic areas and his bed. The fur drives me nuts, but we love him anyway!

    Any pet owner should be a vacuum nerd. It's all good. We only have a bunny and our is destroyed! Please please please share your review in a week….and then another in like 3 months to see if it actually lasts! 😉 Vacuum shopping is so overwhelming!

    We have a handheld shark and use it almost daily! I don't understand how these pups lose so much hair and aren't bald!A friend of ours swears by that Bruggers deal!

    Can't even take the rosemary lemonade. Trying this ASAP — perfect excuse to use the rosemary in my garden. And the sweet tea vodka addition just makes it even better. Have a great weekend!

    That lemonade looks divine! I'm loving having my rosemary from the garden- we made rosemary olive oil and it's incredible! Sounds like I need some mop top!

    I've never tried rosemary in my lemonade before..I need to give it a go. And definitely add some vodka 😉 The vacuum is definitely a fur mamma's best friend. I wish Starbucks had bottomless coffee option..I would take advantage of that asap! Have a great weekend 🙂

    Oh I have such a weakness for Chickflia lemonade. I have never thought to add Rosemary that sounds delicious! I absolutely love our Shark vac it is great for picking up all the dog hair dust bunnies!

    Bottomless coffee? Thankfully i'm not a coffee drinker but I know quite a few people who would benefit greatly from that. Shark's work great && its okay to be excited about a vacuum, they are kinda cool! :]
