the Friday five — link up #14

Friday, April 5, 2013

Happy Friday y'all... I'm currently on a plane to HOUSTON!! Oh yeah, I'm going to be "Texafied" this weekend, thanks to Darby and her hubby and pups! AND, later today I get to meet Jessica!! This is a big, HUGE day for me y'all! I love these girls like they are my own blood sisters, and today I get to hug them, laugh with them, cry with them, and take lots and lots of pictures with them.

the Sowell life's Friday five...
Today's Friday five is a little different... mainly because y'all probably don't want to read about my crying over Sunday's news, seeing my unorganized packing techniques, or seeing how many times we ate out this week. Ha! Yes, it's been one of those weeks where I'm trying to get ahead of the game before I got out of town. So today, I'm going to share with you 5 of my favorite blog posts I read this week! ***And if you aren't currently following these lovely ladies, please do!***

1) {Darby - Cookie Butter} Not that I haven't loved all of Darby's posts this week, but this one intrigued me because I'm always looking for ways to change up recipes just a bit.

2) {Jessica - Easter Recap} Even if you are sick of Easter posts, I PROMISE you will not want to miss the dogshamming at the very beginning of this post! Seriously, I go back to see it every day just so I can laugh. Mainly cause I can relate with little MB!

3) {Stephanie - Tips & Tricks} If you've ever read Steph's posts, you know you are guaranteed to laugh, and always see the cutest little pugs, ever! However, I loved this post so much that I even pinned it on pinterest!! 

4) {Jenn - Happiness... it's a choice} Jenn might not blog daily, but you better believe when she blogs... she nails it! LOVED this post from her! 

5) {Nadine - Life Lessons} If you follow me on twitter, you know how much I love to post life lessons. Well, she had tons that you need to read today. You can thank me later!

AND the winner of the $20 Target Gift Card is...   Nickolee from On the Journey! And y'all I'm so excited for her to win because she is currently a missionary in Mada, and they are coming home for a few weeks really, really soon! So I know she can put this to good use!!! CONGRATS girl!

Who's ready to link up?!! Thanks for stopping by, linking up, sharing the link up on your blog and on twitter, and for just being you — cause y'all are awesome!!! Oh and I'm taking a few days off from blogging, but I'll be back to show y'all some love next week!! =)
