Five on Friday - July 28, 2017

It's finally Friday! And that means it's time for another Five on Friday! I hope you'll join in! All you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add the Five on Friday logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools found on Smidge of This. It's easy, and a great way to find new blogs to read, and a great way to be found!

My cousins wedding has come and gone, and now I have one less thing to look forward to lol. The ceremony was held outside infront of this gazebo. There was a little pond/lake behind, and everything was so beautiful. The reception was beautiful as well.

I only had my phone camera, so I didn't get the greatest photos... but here is my Mom, my brother and myself. I was happy my mom made it to visit for a few days, however it didn't feel like long enough!
Our names were made out of a thin wood to let us know where we would be sitting. And the little thank you gifts were shot glasses with a lindor chocolate. Everything was nicely made, and the food was good. I had a great time, and I'm so happy I got to spend time with my family and celebrate their wedding. There are more pictures on Instagram if you're interested in taking a look - you can find my account info at the top of my website, or on the sidebar!

Remember my Five on Friday post from last week, where I said I had an interview at a business I previously worked at? Well the interview went really good, and I was pretty much led to believe that I would get the position. However they had some other interviews to conduct and they would get back to me Wednesday. Well, they ended up calling Tuesday with not so great news. I didn't get the job. Which sucks, because I really need something, and I thought because I had already worked there, and had some nice words said about me, I was going to get it. I ended up going to an agency this past Wednesday for another job, and I'm still yet to hear back. It's so discouraging, but I really need to find something. So back to the beginning I go.

Have you noticed I changed my blog layout? I was getting frustrated with my previous one, and it was kind of boring. So I decided to invest into something better, and I ended up purchasing the Cassidy blogger template from Etsy. The seller was super helpful, she helped me by creating the header, along with properly installing the template as well, and making sure that my social media accounts were all connected as well. A huge thank you to Vanessa, and I would definitely recommend using one of her templates if you're looking to update yours as well!

There was another boxycharm spoiler released! It's a set of Royal and Langnickel brushes! A few months ago we got an eyeshadow brush duo, from Boxycharm and Royal and Langnickel, and they are so soft, I really like them. So these are definitely welcomed into my collection!  If you're interested in signing up for boxycharm, you can use my referral link here.

So because the wedding was last Friday, and we have been low-carbing since April, we decided we would allow ourselves to treat ourselves to carbs during the weekend since we had been so good. Most of my carbs were consumed through drinks on Friday night, it was open bar, what can I say? We decided on the Saturday we would order a pizza, because it's been almost 4 months since we have had one, and we wanted to treat ourselves. We did good and got back onto low-carb on Sunday. Although, I gained 5lbs water weight between Friday (21st) and Monday (24th) ... I know I will eventually drop it. As of now, I've lost about 6 pounds this month, and down 28 over all. Which is super exciting, I just have a lot more to go!

I hope you all enjoy your weekend!
