5 on Friday


I know I complained about how February dragged on but March needs to slow the heck down. I can't believe the month is almost half over already.

One.
Monday and Tuesday were gorgeous with temps in the 80's. After making the kids stay inside Monday night (still getting over this cough) I toughed it out on Tuesday to enjoy the beautiful weather. Ben ate Orange Leaf and played soccer outside while Jack and I relaxed on a blanket and watched him play. 
And in true Missouri fashion, it snowed yesterday morning.

Two.
Natalie over at Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers posted this adorable bathing suit. I don't know that I would pay $150 for a suit, but it might just be worth it. I mean, look at that bow!

And speaking of bathing suits, I'm sure you all have heard about the Target photoshopping disaster. If not, take a look.

This E! article is by far my favorite commentary of the whole debacle. My two favorite quotes from the author include:
"The last question you should be asking yourself when you're cruising Target's website and looking at pictures of the models showcasing the clothes is: "Where is her vagina?"

"Girl, there are spikes coming out of your skin! Get that checked out. What's the prognosis for jagged edges popping out of your body?"

Three.
A few weeks ago I posted about a scarf I ordered off Groop Dealz. It  finally came and although I wish it was a little thicker and chunkier, I love the color and the fact that it's an infinity scarf.

I also tried on this scarf my friend Julie got me. I love the colors and it will be perfect in the Spring.

Four.
Getting all the salt, grime, and snow off of your car feels amazing. You know what's not amazing? The person in front of us who thought it was a good idea to go through the carwash with a huge piece of equipment in his truck bed that got tangled in the machine causing the line of 20 cars behind him to back up even more.

Five.
Tonight I'm headed to a trivia fundraiser for a local no kill animal shelter. I'm looking forward to having a few cocktails and sharing my knowledge of useless crap.

Happy Friday!
