Five on Friday, Vol. 16

Happy first Friday in February!
I'm not entirely sure where January went, but I wasn't sad to see it go! So far February had been good, so we're still friends. I'm excited to link up with DarciAprilChristina, and Natasha to share the things that made me smile this week!

{O N E}

I don't know about y'all, but I love the Olympics! Maybe it has something to do with being a former athlete, or maybe I just love competition. Regardless the reason, I. Love. The. Olympics! The husband is going to have to figure out another way to watch basketball because I'm taking the TV over for the next two weeks.

This outfit.
Once upon a time I posted about these shoes. A few people asked to see how I would wear them. At time I didn't have a full length mirror, or a clue how to put an outfit together. I am by no means a fashion expert, but I like to think I've learned how to wear them. This outfit works for me :)
Total side note: I'm wearing Naked3 in this picture. It's wonderful! Love it!

This blog post.
I heard this blog post, "Things Girls Wish Their Daddies Knew," on the radio on my way to work. I had to spend a few extra minutes in the car fixing my makeup because mascara and tears don't work together! It's so sweet and so true! If you have read it yet, do it! Get the tissues ready though!

This food.
So, the Super Bowl was a total letdown. I was hoping for a great game. No such luck. However, the food we had totally made up for the lack of excitement. So good!
The favorites were:
Chicken and Waffle Bites: I used Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets and a Hot Honey Sauce. Holy yum!
Jalapeno Popper Spread: Still enjoying this one!
Buffalo Cauliflower Bites: Probably my favorite! Veggies and hot sauce for the win!

These people!
Best part of these week? I get to spend the weekend with all these people! My sweet Grams is visiting from Minnesota, so Sis and Micah and coming too! Y'all my heart can't even handle it. My favorite people all in one place. It's going to be wonderful!

Happy happy weekend!
