The sun is out and I can hear the pool calling my name!! Happy Friday to you! I hope the sun is shinning wherever you are and if it is not, remember “The sun will come out, tomorrow!” Anyway here are a few things this week that made me smile!

I have been single for a while and I am perfectly fine with that so when I saw this on BuzzFeed I laughed out loud. Even if you are not single or whatever, we all know someone in our friend group that this would apply to. Heck it might even be you!

Wednesday night I raced home to jump on my first ever Webinar with Jenna Kutcher to education myself on creating a better Instagram page for myself.  I really enjoyed taking this class and although some of the tips were repetitive my big take aways were 1. Have 5 things you want to focus on and repeat them in a strategic way. 2. Write your captions like you are writing them to your best friend so that those looking at your feed/picture fell like you are speaking to them. If you are interested in learning more, here is where I signed up! It takes about an hour but it felt like 10 minutes. Now, time to plan on my feed!

You all know I have challenged myself to read a book a week and I am kicking books butt BUT my Amazon gift card is almost out of funding so I looked to the internet for ways to read for free. Did you know that many local libraries offer downloadable versions of books!?! I did not until yesterday. The only downfall is there are pretty big waiting lists for new releases so I am not sure I will be using this for those books but maybe for books that are not so popular. If you are looking for ways to read AND save money, check out your library today!

– Have a great weekend!  XO – BM
