Friday Faves: The apartment hunt continues

Lion King 2

Happy Friday Loves.  In case you were wondering, yes The Lion King was awesome!

This weekend our apartment search continues.  I will be spending all day tomorrow visiting apartments and praying that I can find one that has everything we want at a price we can afford. Wish me luck!

Friday Faves: I’m going to see The Lion King

Good morning Loves and Happy Friday.  Have you seen that video? It’s being shared all around Facebook. This weekend I am so excited because on Tuesday night I am finally going to see The Lion King.  Seeing this musical has been on my bucket list for years and I am over the moon that I’m finally going to see it.

Everyone in my family has seen The Lion King and as a huge Disney fan I have been trying to see it for years.  I wanted to see it on Broadway but I just can’t afford a minimum of $225 per ticket.  The touring group is coming to my city and for only $100 (taxes and fees included) I am finally going to see The Lion King.  How did I get such a great price?  I bought pre season tickets.  The show actually opens next Friday but because I’m going to the show before opening night I got the tickets for at least $50 cheaper.

Have a great weekend.  Enjoy these posts from our friends:

Friday Faves: I’m getting a massage tonight

Friday Massage

Good morning Loves and Happy Friday.  This weekend I decided to treat myself to a massage.  All the long hours sitting at a computer desk are catching up with me and I’m getting a lot of pain in my neck and shoulders.  What better way to relieve the tension than with a relaxing one hour massage.

Personal confession:  I can’t actually afford to pay $125 per hour for a massage, but I found a great deal on Groupon.  Today after work I will be enjoying a relaxing massage at my favorite spa for only $55 – what a great deal.  That’s my key to living a luxurious lifestyle on a budget – treat myself to nice things, but only when they are on discount.

Have a great weekend.  Enjoy these good reads from our friends:

Friday Faves: My mom is coming to town

(This is me and my mom)

Happy Friday Loves.  My mother is coming in to town tomorrow – well sort of.  She has a layover here and asked me to keep her company until she catches her connection.  So my question to you is, what fun things can you do (with your mom) if you have an hour to kill?

I’m thinking maybe lunch or a little bit of shopping.  What do you think?
