High Five for Friday

Happppppyyyy  Friday lovelies!!!
I am having the absolute best time in Chicago!!
I'll save my recaps for next week, but today I'm here with the regular scheduled program.
And don't judge me for blogging on vacay.
Shelby and I share a love for the blogging world and also have a bit of friendly blogging competition going on, so we are enjoying blog hour together.

It's a bonding experience, okay!  :)
First, I'm linking up with From My Grey Desk for High Five for Friday...

I received my March Birchbox.
I'm always so excited to see what's inside...
this month didn't disappoint.

 I love love love the bright orange polish and I cannot wait to try it out.


I also received my new heart rate monitor watch.  I'm borderline addicted to watches and working out right this product was right up my alley.  I bought it on for less than $20...I kind of can't remember the actual shipped so fast though and I cannot wait to try it out.


I got myself a mani/pedi...nothing new huh?  
I feel like I do this once a week or so.  It's my guilty pleasure ok!  
I boycotted acrylic nails for a while and I'm still wondering why I got them, but it is nice to have pretty nails that last for more than 2-3 days.  I love that they last for more like 2-3 weeks.

I had strawberry shortcake for the first time this week.  UMMM can someone explain how I've been missing out on such a delicious combination???
It's probably my new favorite dessert.

Meg from Simply Complicated blogged last week about the romantic qualities of an airport.
So I arrive at the airport on Wednesday night and I'm immediately overjoyed by all of the family members waiting with welcome home signs for their loved ones who had been away serving our country.  I literally couldn't even focus on the fact that I had a plane to catch....I so badly wanted to wait with them to experience such a moment.  

 {via google}
While I was waiting in line at security, I see a man dressed in camouflage round the corner and take off running towards the waiting family.  The family members, one in particular (his wife) begins screaming and crying and another family member is recording the whole thing.

When he makes it his wife, she literally launches into his arms.
I mean talk about an emotional breakdown...I couldn't turn the tears off.
It was the most moving thing I had seen in a long time.

I get chills just thinking about it.

Ok, next up is Nail Files with Fabulous but Evil

The Nail Files
In honor of one of my favorite days, I'll be sporting this color very soon!

It's Friday, I'm in up with Shane.
 I'll just be spending the day with Shelbs...did I mention that she is one of my faves??
Check her out...she is amazing!
Sweetness In Starlight
Make today ridiculously amazing!

I love acrylic nails. I always have. I wish I could afford them right now! They make for the most perfect manis.

Happy Friday!! So many things to comment on in this post. First, I can't wait to hear your recaps on Chicago! Second, I'm obsessed with my heart rate monitor and you're going to love it - and DANG that's a good price. Thirdly, I can't believe that was your first strawberry shortcake!! That has to be a favorite dessert of mine, and they're relatively healthy since cool whip and angel food cake is low in cals :)

I think I might just have to sign up for BirchBox. It would be so fun to receive a little surprise each month. That is such a pretty nail polish shade. I recently went out and bought a pink/coral OPI shade for spring. I am due to give myself a mani/pedi today for the weekend. Strawberry shortcake is the best! Even my five year old craves it and asks me to make it for her. Have a great weekend!

My Birchbox always seems to take so much longer to get to me than everyone else... :(

And I looooooove strawberry shortcake, I just might have to add it to the menu this weekend!

Becca Christensen said...

Happy Friday! Your birch box looks so fun. I've been wanting to sign up but I'm trying to save money...blah. : ]

Your BB was awesome. I opted for the Vogue one...

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said...

Oh my goshhhh!
That strawberry shortcake looks SO good.
One of my favorite desserts!

And your mani looks so cute! Makes me want to get acrylics!
I don't think I've worn them since high school prom lol!

So glad you're enjoying your vacay, giiirl!
Happy Friday!

Loveeee your white tips!!! I have always been a fan and creature of habit getting pink and whites! BUT, I've been letting my nails breathe, so I'm without... and feeling so naked! You need to treat yourself and what a great way to do so ;)

Have a SUPERB Friday!!!

That is so sweet about the reunion at the airport! I will have to look out for that when I travel next week.
