Friday Highlights 2016 V6

Happy Fri-Yay!

Friday, Friday, finally Friday!
I don't often find myself looking forward to the the weekend but I couldn't possibly be more excited about this one. A Valentines Party with our dear friends, wine & chocolate girls night, a trip to the shooting range, possibly a date and Valentines Day with my loves. It's going to be so much fun! I'll be sure to do a recap of all of the fun on Monday.

Now for this week Friday picks!

{THREE} $10 at Target, The Link-Up

Last month I had so much fun taking the $10 at Target challenge.
Have you heard? Now the challenge we all love is officially a monthly link-up.

So for all of you who chimed in and said "I really want to take the $10 Target challenge" now is your chance! Make plans to join us on Monday February 22nd as we kick off the official link-up with a bang... and by bang I may or may not mean giveaway :).

{FOUR} Closet clean out

I'm not exactly sure why, but last weekend I started cleaning out my closet. One pile morphed into two piles and when it all came to an end I bagged up 71 (yes I'm totally a dork who counted) pieces of clothing. 

It felt amazing!
I haven't exactly changed much over the past 16 years so I seriously had clothes in my closet that I wore when I was 16. It felt so good to let go of some of the things I have been hanging onto for no good reason!

The best part is now I have a better idea about what I need to focus on and what I don't need to buy (active wear). This year I promised to shop for more color and/or pattern and my shopping buddy Anna has vowed to keep me accountable by using force if necessary.

I even picked up a new shirt this weekend with a coupon JCP sent me.

Look, color and pattern!

When was the last time you cleaned out your closet?

{FIVE} Giveaway

In Mondays post I shared all about a little giveaway we have going on right now!
