Friday Favs

Today I am doing my first ever blog link up with one of my fav (former Dallas) bloggers, The Bargain Blonde to share some of my current favorite things:

BIRTHDAY FREEBIES

I have said it before, but I LOVE getting things for free!  Since my birthday was yesterday, my email has been blowing up the past 2 weeks with nonstop deals.  I love it!  So far I have cashed in my free Which Wich, Starbucks, Jason’s Deli, and Yummilicious fro-yo!  I still have a few more to redeem next week and looking forward to it!

 Chiffon Tops

I am seriously obsessed!!  If it’s made of chiffon, I pretty much want it on my body asap.  I actually got a total of 4 for my birthday from my cousins Stephanie and Julie!  One of which happens to be this exact shirt:

 Animal Print

ROAR! I have always been a fan of animal print and I love how leopard print is everywhere you look these days!  Plus it goes with almost everything and can spice up any outfit!

 Christopher Columbus

Yes, you read that right.  I love him because he discovered America…ok who am I kidding?  I love him because he is the reason I always get a 3 day weekend around my birthday!  Holla for bank holidays!!

Camp Gladiator

The final week of this session just wrapped up, but I ended up signing up for the next one!  CG STRONG!  Fun fact – CG and I have the same birthday! 🙂

 Instagram

I am such a late bloomer with social networking these days.  I resisted twitter for years and when I finally caved I became a tweeting maniac so it’s no surprise that the same thing is occurring with Instagram.  If you follow me, I am sorry if I am annoying!  🙂

  What are you favorite things this week??  Happy Friday!

Free Coffee Friday!

It’s no secret I LOVE me some freebies! What is it about free things that make them so much better (besides the fact you aren’t sparing any change)?? When I heard from my cousin Stephanie that 7-Eleven was offering free coffee today, I was pumped! Especially because it was a 20 oz size, and because I didn’t really have to go out of my way to get it since there is one I pass every morning (and yes, I usually go out of my way to collect my free goods – don’t judge). After a sweaty bootcamp session, I rolled up to my local 7-Eleven and filled up a red Romney cup with some hazelnut brew!

So tasty! I usually make coffee in my keurig, so different flavors are always a treat. I forgot how much I love hazelnut flavored coffee, and since it is now fall I need to stock up! Sad confession – I decided to swing by again before making my commute to the office to top off my bevie, but they were out of hazelnut! 🙂 I settled for some Brazilian Extra Bold and dumped in an extra creamer to weaken it and it was also amazing! Cheers to 7-Eleven! Happy Friday!
