It's Friday!

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen. I am so excited for this addition of High Five for Friday and Five on Friday! So, lets begin, shall we?

1. I was set to take my final test for my training for work on Monday, however stuff happens (it seems to be the trend at my job), and I was given my final test on Saturday...2 days early. I was a bit nervous going into it, as I didn't really know what to expect. But, 6 hours later, I can officially say that I am the newest member of DIA Operations Team!! I am so proud of myself and all that I have accomplished in such a short time. I am eager to learn more and continue to grow with DIA. I am loving my job and the people there aren't too bad either.

2. On Tuesday, I stayed in Denver with a friend of mine and we had a fun filled day of shopping to celebrate my completion of training. We took a trip to the Federal Reserve and went to the museum. We also had the most amazing fries ever! We shared, buffalo fries, mac and cheese fries, and truffle fries. Yup, we had fries for dinner and they were amazing. 
This is what $30,000,000 looks like in $100 bills

3. After a long day of shopping we went to a Haunted House!! I have been wanting to go to a haunted house all month and figured that I wouldn't get a chance to go. But, I convinced the girls that I was with and we headed to one of the most famous haunted houses in all of Denver... 13th Floor!! I love being scared and 13th Floor did the job. But, I am not going to lie, I think I hyped up the haunted house in my head (after all, it was featured on the travel channel as one of the top in the country). Let's just say it was not 13 floors and I made it all the way through. But, I did have a blast and hope I can squeeze anther haunted house or corn maze into my busy schedule.  

4. On Wednesday, I put together a bookcase that I ordered online and decorated it. Our house is finally starting to feel like a home. I was so excited about our new place and I think I got burnt out pretty quickly. I have been picking up stuff here and there. I want it to be in order for when Joe comes home, but at the same time, I would love for him to be involved with some of the decisions. I am so happy with how the bookcase turned out! One day when my house is done, I will do a post on the finished product. 

5. Fall is here and my shoe collection is catching up. This week, I added 2 really cute pair of boots to my collection. I have been eye Jeffrey Campbell's for a year now and this week a pair where magically left at my door....Thanks Joe. I am beyond excited to have a pair in my closet. I was out shopping last night and stumbled upon a cute little ankle boot from Steve Madden. I am loving the new fall trend of the ankle boot and can't wait to rock these bad boys. 

Keep an eye out for an amazing giveaway this coming Monday that my real life/bloggy friend Mal and I (and a bunch of other fabulous bloggers) are hosting! I promise you will want to enter.

This week I am linking up with


  1. How exciting to hear that you're house is getting set-up nicely! I can't wait to start when my husband gets back and we move!

  2. Congratulations on passing your final test! How exciting :D
    I definitely do not do haunted anything, I am such a wuss. I am afraid of the dark, I don't need something popping out and making that worse ha ha!
    I am huge into boots, I don't have a specific brand, just as long as they are cute!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. 1. Congrats on passing your test!!
    2. Where did you eat all these delicous fries?! I want to just live off fries for the rest of my life. (In this fantasy, they won't make me fat.)
    3. I don't think I've ever known anyone who has actually done the 13th Floor, but I've been hearing about it for years. I thought was supposed to be the scariest thing ever and most people didn't make it to the 13th level. What a bummer there aren't actually 13, although I'm sure the entrance would be enough to scare the pants off me. I'm such a wuss.
    4. Love your book case--it looks great!
    5. Those black booties on the left are adorable! I need black booties!

  4. love your cute little bookcase styling! presh!

  5. I absolutely love that bookshelf! It's beyond perfect and so fun with all the pictures!!! LOVE!
