Thank you all for the outpouring of love and kindness on yesterday's post. I have truly enjoyed reading all your comments (I even cried when reading a few!) and though I am not sure what the next few weeks, months and years hold I am hopeful that we will all cross paths again after May 31st, 2012.
In other news, another Friday means another Friday Five! What am I going gaga over this week?
1. The Boxwood Elephant at Madison
I popped into one of my all time favorite stores, Madison, this week and about died when I saw this giant elephant made out of boxwood. It is even more amazing in person. Truly a one-of-a-kind piece...I almost feel like it was made for me ;)
2. The Shops at Target: CosBar
While I did pick up a few candles from the Privet line at Target, the CosBar line was surprisingly my favorite of all the shops. I have shopped at CosBar in Vail, Co and Edina, MN and have always had a wonderful experience. I was not so sure what to expect from their line, but let me say that their tweezers and foot file are the best I have EVER owned. The tweezers are $4 and just like the much more expensive Tweezerman cousin. The foot file ($6) is the better than the ones used at most nail salons. It leaves your feet so soft and works 1000 times better than a pumice stone. It is so amazing that I called my mother after using it one time and had her go out and buy one, she agrees with me and you know how we are nail people. I have gone back to buy multiple backups, it is just THAT good. I am actually so impressed with these two products that I plan to go back to Target this weekend and purchase the light-up travel mirror and towelettes from the CosBar shop.
Well, JCP has done it again with their Spring collection. Like my friend, According to Nina, I picked up two pairs of shoes this week as well as a new dress (I just ordered the one pictured above). Their prices just cannot be beat and they offer great service and LIGHTING FAST shipping! I continue to be impressed and like them more and more.
4. Z Gallerie Accessories
I ventured into Z Gallerie for the first time in a few years on Saturday and found far too many things I liked. From monkeys to elephants, they had it covered.
There were also vibrant colors everywhere. I will certainly be visiting again very soon!
After a disappointing service experience my first visit my friends and I headed back to Sissy's on Derby de Mayo. Their fried chicken is some of the best in Dallas as is their mac and cheese. Thankfully, we had a much more positive experience this time around. You also just cannot beat the atmosphere. I mean, they have plates hanging on the wall and use Spode china....need I say more?
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
