Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: 5 for Friday

5 for Friday

4:00 AM


My first 5 for Friday of 2016!  I just wanted to recap since I haven’t done a 5 for Friday in 2 weeks.  Sorry about that folks!  The holidays keep me extremely busy especially with having a boyfriend, because now I have two families to spend time with.  Christmas was great, Joey spent his first Christmas Eve with my family and saw all of our traditions, while I spent Christmas Day with his family.  I never opened presents on Christmas Day (in the morning) and I got to do that this year with his family.  I ate a whole lot of food.  I’m pretty sure I gained 10 lbs over the last few weeks haha.  Then for New Year’s, this year boyfriend and I decided to spend it with my parents at home.  We wanted to stay local and not have to worry about driving and getting ready with not enough time (that’s moreso targeted for me) and all of that type of stuff.  Our anniversary was also on New Year’s Day, so we slept in and then he cooked an amazing breakfast for me.  I got to eat so many delicious things and then he made some food from scratch.  I was quite proud of him for preparing all of this.  I wasn’t allowed upstairs for a good two hours, ok maybe one hour, but I was given a donut and coffee in the mean time so I wasn’t too hungry, or crabby haha.  Ok, I’m not really crabby when I don’t have coffee, but I need my morning coffee.  Anyway, our New Year was spent relaxing and he worked a little bit.  I hope everyone had a great holiday season!

Mommy's Birthday

It was my mom’s birthday yesterday!  We didn’t do anything crazy, but I did get her gifts.  My mom doesn’t really like to celebrate her birthday, so we keep it pretty low key.  I just want to say that she is the greatest woman ever (at least in my world).  She is my best friend and somehow she always makes me feel better.  No matter how bad of a day I’m having she’s there to lift my spirits up while dealing with her own daily life.  I will never be able to repay her, but at least I can try.

Social Media Manager of Ewa Bazaar

Now, I’ve been dying to tell all of you this (I’ve mentioned this on some social media accounts), I figured I would just wait to make the final announcement here on the blog for 5 for Friday.  So, the one brand that I have been working with (Ewa Bazaar) since I started my blog has named me their Social Media Manager!  That means I get to work with someone on their social media accounts.  With that being said below are all of the accounts that I set up for them over this past weekend.  I hope to see you follow along!

Your Opinions

With already being a week into 2016 I want your opinions.  I want to know what you would like to see more or less of here on the blog.  Do you guys like when I’m strictly fashion oriented or do you like hearing little blurbs about life here and there?  Do you like having a new nail art design every Monday?  How about my fashion posts, would you like to see more content spoken about the pieces themselves or is what I’m writing just perfect?  Pretty much just state your opinions in the comments.  I read every comment, even if I don’t reply I read them all and your opinions do matter to me!  I mean, if it weren’t for all of you reading this, I wouldn’t have a successful blog.  I want to take my blog to the next level so I want to make sure what content I’m giving is actually wanted.  Also, constructive criticism is welcome!

I don’t really have a number 5 because I’ve been so busy that I can’t even remember what I had for breakfast, let alone what happened this week.  Hopefully next week will slow down and I’ll be able to write a good 5 for Friday post!
