Five on Friday {May 23, 2014}

Happy Friday Gals! Can you even believe it's Memorial Day weekend already?! I certainly can't, but I'm not complaining! It's been a busy week, and I can't wait to soak up some sun this weekend and enjoy the unofficial start of summer! Here are the 5 things that have been running my world for the past week:

1 | Sister M is graduating!

Today my younger sister is graduating from Montclair State University! I’m so proud of her and can’t wait to attend her graduation ceremony and celebrate this great accomplishment together. And after having her live on campus for the past 4 years, I’m also selfishly excited to have her moving back to the area so we can see each other a lot more and get in some much needed gal time!

2 | New Hair

This past weekend I took the plunge and got a major haircut! After years and years of having pretty much the same long style, I suddenly felt the need for a change and decided to go with a long bob. Overall, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, though I am mourning the loss of being able to don a crazy bun on the top of my head – I’m hoping after it grows just a touch, I’ll be able to revive it without too many flyaway’s!

3 | Homemade Iced Coffee

I’m a firm believer in changing my coffee routine with the seasons and now that it looks like the warm weather is (hopefully!) here to stay, I’m in full on iced coffee mode! After about a week of getting mad at myself for unnecessary stops to Dunkin’ every morning, I decided to make a big batch at home! I rely on The Pioneer Woman’s trusty iced coffee recipe and it never fails to disappoint! So if you are looking to enjoy your iced coffee on demand, brew up a batch yourself.

4 | Memorial Day weekend!

As I mentioned above, I can’t believe it’s Memorial Day weekend already – the official kickoff to the summer! After such a brutal winter I don’t think I’ve ever been more ready for summer to come! I’m headed down to the Jersey shore this weekend for some sun, a family bbq and hopefully a little time on the water. 

5 | Sequiney Giveaway!
