It's Friday

It's Friday and I wish I was more excited about it. I've had a freaking headache for two days that seems to be taking up permanent residency! Anyone have any miracle cures for headaches? 

There are many reasons why I love my husband, but I'm just going to share one of those reasons with you now. After Jeremy got home from work last night, he said, "When I woke up this morning, I got really excited thinking that it was Monday and we would get to watch another episode of The Bachelorette." So this either makes him really gay or really awesome. I'm gonna go with really awesome!!! I love that my husband will pretty much watch anything I want to watch and he's not ashamed to say he enjoys it. 

Since I have this massive headache and I'm running out of interesting things to say, I am just going to link up with The Bargain Blonde for Friday Favorites

Kenra Dry Shampoo is definitely my favorite hair product right now. I bought this in hopes of not washing my hair every single day like I had been doing. Now, I use this every single day even if I washed my hair. It gives my hair such great texture and body. And it smells amazing!!! 
Ahhhhh... Gucci Rush, I seriously LOVE this stuff! I found this amazing perfume about 6 years ago and it was love at first sniff! A few years ago, I was told that it was discontinued. I searched and searched and searched for a perfume that I liked and couldn't find anything that compared to my love for Gucci Rush. Last Christmas, we were at Sephora and guess what I found?!? You got it, Gucci Rush. My life is complete again! 

 Have I mentioned how much I love Essie Turquoise and Caicos?!? This is definitely my favorite summer color. I keep trying to paint my nails a different color, but I always come back to this. 

White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria, so refreshing!!! 

2 lemons, thinly sliced
1 apple, cored and sliced
2 cups strawberries, sliced 
1 750 ml bottle white wine, I use Chardonnay
1/2 cup white rum
4 cups lemon-lime soda, I use Sprite Zero

1. Add lemon slices, then apples, then strawberries to a large pitcher
2. Pour the wine and the rum on top
3. Cover and place in the refrigerator for a few hours
4. Add lemon-lime soda 
5. ENJOY!!!

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
