Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

10/24/2014

 
Happy Friday dolls! Sorry for my lack of response yesterday, I was on my way to Mobile, AL which happens to be a fun 8 hour drive and cell reception in the middle of no where is spotty at best. Unfortunately I will be as MIA today as I was yesterday but I promise I appreciate all the love and will read every comment as soon as I get back to Florida (which probably won't be until SUPER late tonight). I hope everyone has had an amazing week this week and has a fabulous weekend planned but for now it's time to link up with the lovely Amanda for our Friday favorites!
 
 

1. It's UCF Homecoming weekend which means today is Spirit Splash! I'm sad I'll be missing out on it but in all honesty I haven't attended a Spirit Splash since I graduated so I'm not missing out on much. For those who don't know, the Friday before homecoming all the students gather around the Reflection Pond in a pep rally style event and at one point all the students charge into Reflection Pond and it turns into one giant pool party.

2. Loving this fall look! Of course it still isn't quite fall weather here and I still haven't gotten myself a fur vest but I'm loving plaid and fur!



3. Downloaded T-Swizzle's newest song Welcome to New York. Thanks Kerri for the heads up it was out a little early! Not loving it quite as much as Out of the Woods but it's definitely growing on me! Umm can you believe 1989 comes out on Monday?!?! EEK!

4. I have a HUGE love for goat cheese. When Jaclyn posted this recipe the other day I knew I would love it before I even tried it.  Goat cheese, red pepper flakes and wine? All my favorite things! Definitely a must try recipe and even if you don't like goat cheese she has a funny little "how to lose a guy in a 5 day trip to Mexico" story so it's worth reading!



5.  And while I'm only spending around 24 hours total here I had to include Mobile, AL in today's post. I'm definitely completely surprised by how pretty it is here. Since this isn't a vacation or a fun trip I don't really get to explore as much as I'd like but from what I've seen it's really nice!

Hope everyone has an amazing and safe weekend! I'll be out at UCF tomorrow trying not to fall asleep!

  30. What a fun homecoming tradition! I'm with you on this weather....I'm ready for some cooler temps over here in TX! I seriously think I wore my plaid shirt and fur vest so much last year that it became my "uniform". I'm on the hunt for a black fur this year.

  31. So far I haven't liked anything off 1989 except for Shake it Off! I'm excited for tomorrow though... I'm sure there will be more I like once the entire album is released!
