Five on Friday {June 14}

Hey y'all,

It has been one crazy week and I am looking forward to a few days away from my work email after putting out some fires this week. Here are five things I am loving this week:

one. Saturday.

Tomorrow, my sorority big sister, Shannon and I are going to visit Chapel Hill and enjoy time together. While we both live in NC we only see each other about once a year. I'm excited to catch up and to see how much Franklin street has changed since we left 7+ years ago.

We also have not taken a photo in the last eight years, whoops, so here is us back at a Mother/Daughter brunch in 2009. Babies.

two. Vineyard Vines for Target swimwear.

Yesterday I popped into Target for salad dressing and some ear drops. I, however, wandered over to the Women's clothing section and the VV for Target display was hiding by the clearance. I scooped up this swimwear set and love it! Thanks for someone returning it! It does look like the top is still available to ship and you could always find plain navy bottoms to coordinate.

three. Project Runway.

Last night was the Project Runway finale was last night and I loved watching the designers' collections. It was a very impressive show and I won't share any spoilers but I am so excited for the winning designer and I know the other two will go on to do very big things! This also ends almost all of my tv shows for the summer. The Bold Type also ended this week so I only have Younger and Southern Charm on my DVR.

four. Small Group send off.

This week was my friends last week in our small group before she moves around the world. It was a nice night of discussion, prayer, and pizza hut breadsticks to send her off. Of course I cried during the prayer but I am so excited for what the Lord has planned for her in this new country, job, and community.

five. Giveaway. 

I had plans to post my giveaway yesterday but this week got away from me. In honor of 300 posts and getting back in the blogging groove, I am giving away a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card for all of your summer reading and a silicone O-venture o-ring perfect to toss in your pool or beach bag so you don't lose your keys. I have had the pink silicone key ring since March and love it! To enter, just write a comment below about your favorite summer vacation spot or summer read on your to-read list. The giveaway ends Wednesday, June 19th at 12pm EST.
Also, this giveaway is not sponsored. I am purchasing the items directly.
