You know…the Friday before Cinco de Mayo. Can’t wait to drink margaritas and eat Mexican food all day long on Saturday!
Linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk for High Five for Friday. Here are my five favorites from this week.

I received my Send Something Good package in the mail earlier this week from the wonderful Natalie at Fake Rain. She totally hooked me up with some great stuff! I’ll be posting later on this month (for the official link-up) about all the fun things she sent me. And the good news is I think they are going to do another one for those of you that missed out on this goodie swap.

Now that we are home from vacation we are going to foster a puppy through a local pet rescue organization called Paws. I am just waiting to get an email back saying we can come pick up the little guy/gal. I can’t wait to have another puppy for Crosby to play with! We will get him/her for a two week time period. Unless of course I can somehow convince Evan to keep it.

On Wednesday night I had volunteer orientation for another local non-profit organization called Bright Pink. For those of you that watch Guiliana and Bill Rancic’s show you may have heard about them. They offer support and education to young women that are at high-risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer. They focus mostly on those that are at high-risk, but also help all young women that want to know how to be proactive about their health. I am so excited to start volunteering! Being aware of your family history and your current health is important for every woman. So educate yourself and don’t forget to feel yourself up once a month too! You can even sign up for Bright Pink’s Underwire Alerts that will send you a monthly text reminder to check for any abnormalities. Pretty cute and funny if you ask me.

The other night Evan and I went to the grocery store for our weekly run. I have been trying to collect coupons for the past couple of months and it finally paid off a bit. We saved a combined $45 with our coupons – 30% of our total amount. I know it’s not “extreme couponing” by any means, but it’s better than nothing. Yay for coupons!

Nicki Minaj released her Summer tour dates for the US, and I cannot be more excited. Her first stop is in Chicago on July 16th at the Chicago Theater. Tickets go on sale today and I can’t wait to buy them for me and a girlfriend!
Have a great weekend!
