Five on Friday: Confessions

Linking up for Five on Friday and Oh hey, Friday today!

ONE. I confess that sometimes I wish I lived in Charleston, SC because of how southern it is there. Ever since the TV show Southern Charm first came on Bravo, I have been obsessed and secretly wanting to move there. However, I don't think I could truly ever leave Texas unless my hubby and I had an amazing opportunity somewhere outside the state. A girl can dream.
TWO. I confess that What Alice Forgot was one of the better fictional books that I've read in a long time. I found myself always wanting to read more to figure out what was going to happen next. The epilogue gave me closure and made me smile. Now onto the next book!
THREE. I confess that even though I'm 7 months pregnant, I still have baby fever. I am very much looking forward to the day when Kensie Grace is fully grown and ready to make her debut into the world (don't come early, Kensie)! Maybe then, my baby fever will lighten up.
FOUR. I confess that I never knew Chick Fil A had buffalo sauce for dipping, and now that I know, I am obsessed. I crave that place far more than I should. It may go down in history as my favorite fast food place that ever existed. Chicken for days.
FIVE. I confess that I am super excited to start offering sponsorship opportunities on my blog. (I haven't done this in over 2 years!) Go HERE to buy a 200x200 ad space on my blog. And because I'm feeling generous, you can take 40% off your purchase with promo code HELLOMAMA. This means that you'll only pay $6! Hurry up though - I am only selling THREE spots! There is no expiration date currently set for the promo code, so if all three spots fill now, you can still purchase with the discount and the ad will run once the 30 day duration is up for first buyers.

  6. Oh chick-fila! When Raegan was first born, I would put her in the car and drive up there so she'd fall asleep, eat in the car, then drive around for an hour so she'd sleep! I'm pretty sure I did that probably 3 times a week!! My favorite dipping sauces are honey mustard and Polynesian. YUM!

  13. I’ve been waiting for the weekend to have time to catch up on Southern Charm! My husband and I love picking places we’d love to live but we’d never actually leave either. Dallas is one of ours if Texas didn’t get so darn hot! Only two months left to deal with that baby fever – she’ll be here before you know it! Chick dil a is my favorite and their sauces are so fantastic!

  15. I'm from Texas but now I live in Charleston and it is awesome! Saw Craig from Southern Charm at a fashion show last week!! Oh, and I'm so glad to hear you liked What Alice Forgot! I loved that book and read some negative reviews of it lately! I've decided I can't be friends with anyone who hates that book! HA! ;)

  16. I can't wait for you to meet your sweet bundle of joy!!!! :) eek! also? Chickfila IS DEFINITELY the most amazing fast food place that ever existed!!! YAY! & although I love buffalo sauce, I can't stray away from my faves (polynesian + their chickfila sauce)....yummm!

  18. Loooove Southern Charm and I was totally just telling my husband the other day that we need to visit Charleston! lol

  19. You know I also love Liane Moriarty! Her other books are amazing too. I am ashamed to admit that I watch something so tawdry, but I enjoy Southern Charm too. Patricia really makes the show, IMO.

  20. I love your daughters name! My niece's name is Kenley-Grayce so very similar!

    I love everything about the south - I would move to South Carolina in a heartbeat! Texas would be my number one pick though!

  21. First of all, Chik Fil A is the best. Ever. And secondly, as a Charleston native, I'm not sure how I feel about Southern Charm....but I will say whole-heartedly that Charleston is my favorite place on earth and I'm so lucky that I got to grow up there...and that my parents still live there! However, I am OBSESSED with Texas (and the Texans...JJ Watt in particular) and can't wait to visit my best friend in Houston this fall!
