Fun Five on Friday 10/5/18

I have been thinking a lot about how I want to do the blog in 2018. I do know for certain I want to do more & more personal posts…..that was always an ambition of mine for this website from the very beginning. My motto is all things “frugal fashion finances & fun.”

So this is the beginning of a tradition I want to work hard to maintain…..Fun Five (things) on Fridays. Things I did. Things I saw. Deals I got. OOTD. Anything for you.

So I hope you have some fun too! Here we go!


Saturday I was a lucky girl to attend a dramatic read through of “Death of a Salesman” with my blogger friend Liz @ Yes/No Detroit @ U of M in Ann Arbor. I studied this during my HS & college English studying days. The 1 & only Alec Baldwin read the script as Willy Loman. WOW I was so shocked. He was wonderful. Very expressive even in a mere script reading. It truly was very awesome to see & I am so glad Liz invited me.


Sunday I slept in  (oops!) & my mom came over. We had a day of Motor City Nutrition treat, shopping to start enjoying my birthday coupons that are starting to come in, & dinner @ Rusty Bucket in Northville. I have never been there before but I tried the meatloaf & I LOVED IT.
