Friday Favorites 10.17.14

The arrival of this Friday feels extra exciting. I am not sure if it is the weather or the exciting fall fun we have planned. It could be having my last long run planned before my half marathon in just over TWO weeks *ACK*!

I don't know exactly what it is but I am all smiles today. Maybe it will motivate me to finally tackle get Marissa's Halloween costume made. I have been a bit of a procrastinator this year. 

Enough rambling here are this weeks 5!

{ONE} Fall Weather, Oh Glorious Fall

After 4 days of rain I was in need of some sunshine, a bit depressed and kind of angry that our fall fun was rained out. We made the best of the situation and did some fun things at home but it just wasn't the same.

But look!

This weekend has some serious potential. I plan to mark a few several things off the bucket list . I hope the girls can keep up!

I am in love guys. Seriously, head over hills.

They look amazing, they stay in place and the price is unbeatable. I ordered 4, got one free and that made them $4.60 each, including shipping. Speaking of shipping, my order shipped in less than 12 hours and was on my door step in a matter of days. 

Check out all of these options and this is just the tip of the iceberg

Plus they are versatile style wise to.

Wear them wide, best when running.

Fold them in half to make them narrow.

Or if this look is up your alley you can sport them this way.

I wish this plug was sponsored, but it isn't. I just LOVE this product and wanted to pass it along.

{THREE} Button Swapping 

I spent some time working on my blog last week. I added a "Contact Me" page  as well as a sponsor tab. I still consider myself a "newby blogger" I have just now been on this crazy blogging adventure for a little over 6 months. Where it is encouraging to see how far I have came, I know I still have a lot to learn and I am a long way from where I would like to be. 

For now I know that I am not ready for actual sponsors but I would love to do some button swapping. I put some ideas of what this may look like on my "Sponsor Tab" If you are interested send me a message and we can see if were a good fit for each other and work out the details!

{FOUR} Truth

So I saw this on Pinterest last week, cracked up, showed the husband and moved on. Then it turned into one of those random pins that EVERYONE seem to be re-pinning. So I thought that maybe it was worth a share. 

Hope you laughed as much as we did.

{FIVE} Bzz Agent

Yesterday I received my first Bzz Agent campaign box.

I posted this picture to Instagram, and was asked by a few people what Bzz Agent was. WHAT?! Okay, truth be told I had never heard of them 6 weeks ago. It is a company that looks for people to promote other companies products via social media to put it simply. When I first signed up I had about 75 short surveys to take which now is down to about 1/2 a week. You should check them out and see what kind of fun products they match you up with. I can't wait to share more about these chips when I do something awesome with them.

P.S. This really is just me sharing the blogger perk love, I don't receive a thing by you signing up :). 

Happy Friday!

I hope your mid October weekend is a fabulous one.
