Friday Five

I'm back with another Friday Five! Lots of exciting things are happening in my life lately! I'm linking up with the following lovely ladies this week: April, Darcy, Christina, and Natasha.

Here are just a few things I'm loving:

1. Kate Spade Bag for a BARGAIN!
I found this beautiful perfect Kate Spade bag ON CLEARANCE at Marshall's a couple weeks ago. I had been looking for another large neutral colored leather handbag to add to my collection. This bag is roomy but lightweight, and it fits perfectly over my shoulder. I also like that it zips up, making it ideal for travel. This definitely exemplifies the Marshall's slogan I saw in an ad: "Designer fashion at prices that make it easy to say yes." 

2. Kate Spade Pens 

I was in the Lilly store in Wilmington a couple weeks ago and they had some of the Kate Spade stationery items too. I couldn't resist this adorable Kate Spade pen set. Each pen has a different idiom: So Well Composed, From The Desk Of, Yours Sincerely, Whats The Word, and To Whom It May Concern. The other side of each pen has the signature Kate Spade New York logo. They write really well and are really fun to use at work. I love the bright colors too. You can buy them here.

3. Krispy Kreme K-Cups
I saw these Krispy Kreme K-Cups at Bed Bath & Beyond a few weeks ago and had to try them. I had never seen them at Target or a grocery store before. And since I have more Bed Bath & Beyond 20% off coupons than I know what to do with, I was able to get them for even less than if I bought a box of Donut Shops K-Cups at Target.

4. Free Chick-fil-a Breakfast
The Chick-fil-a calendar offer for September was a free breakfast entree and large Coca Cola beverage. I enjoyed these free Chick-n-minis with a large Diet Dr. Pepper for breakfast on a September Saturday. They were delicious!

5. Clemson Game Day

Last weekend I visited friends in South Carolina and had the pleasure of attending my first ever Clemson tailgate! I was able to get tickets for the game too and had a blast getting to witness all the excitement first hand. I attended a small liberal arts school in SC, and the first weekend of my freshman year we played Clemson, so a group of people from my hall made the trip to Death Valley. However, I don't really consider that a true Clemson game experience because we were pulling for the visiting team, we didn't tailgate, and I can't even remember if we got there in time to see the awesome pregame festivities. So I was so thrilled to be able to experience my first true Clemson game last Saturday. Watching the players rub Howard's Rock and run down the Hill onto the field before the game gave me chills! It's not known as the most exciting 25 seconds in college football for nothing! I am a lifelong UNC fan, but our football games and tailgates are not nearly as fun! I will always be a hardcore UNC basketball fan, but I'm starting to become more of a Clemson football fan.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!
