50% Off Ad Sale + 15 Weekend Plans

I like to introduce my ESPN2 sponsors in a way that gives you a little more insight into who they are and what they blog about. I've had them pick GIFs before that describe them best, but I've really enjoyed having these ladies list what they would do on a weekend with no plans. Not only do you learn a little more details about their lives and personalities, but it also hooks you up with some ideas for your weekend! Because there is nothing worse than the back-and-forth of "What do you want to do? Well I don't know what do you want to do?" 

And since I'm in such a good mood on this short work week (I have both Wednesday and Thursday off hooray!) I've decided to run an ad sale. Use code STARBUCKSLOVERS to take 50% off any ad spaces between now and continuing through December 31st. Yes, I know that isn't the lyric, but that is what I hear. Sorry Taylor, maybe enunciate better next time.

(and by locally I mean within an hour and a half of where I live in East Texas, including DFW)
1. Hit up Plano & Frisco to shop at Trader Joes, REI, and Ikea

2. Spend a day at either the Dallas Arboretum or the Fort Worth Arboretum

3. Explore Nacogdoches on a weekend when they have a festival

4. Explore Waco (just not in the summertime when its hot)

5. Attend a festival/event in a nearby town -- like the Tyler Rose Festival, the East Texas Balloon Race in Longview, the Azalea Trail in Tyler or Dogwood Trails in Palestine
