High Five for Friday

I'm so glad that Friday is f.i.n.a.l.l.y here.  What took it so long?  Every day this week was like a Monday...I didn't think I was going to make it...I really didn't!  I think I'm finally back on my school year routine...5:15 a.m. doesn't seem nearly as early, or as hard to wake up to, as it did a few weeks ago.  I've totally got this!!

Brittney and I finally started back on our workout schedule...week two.  I am a little disappointed in myself for taking a "break" for almost two months.  What was I thinking?  No more breaks...ever!  We are running now, which has been fun...I used to run every day, but that was ummm...15 years ago??  So, yeah...I'm running again, and I love it! 

clearly, my workout clothes do not match in any way..
and I don't even care...
until we pass the super skinny, tan, blond chicks; with the perfect pony tails swinging in synchronization with each graceful bounce...They are basically lapping us in their cute matching workout clothes...breathing normally, while carrying on a conversation with each other...give me a break!!!  They are somewhat motivating annoying..but I'm still not that worried about my workout clothes matching at 5:30 in the morning...

When I have a week like this week, I tend to write myself little reminders to keep myself going.  This was my note-to-self this week...You should seriously write yourself will make a difference in your day...I promise...try it!

This kid...I swear!  I remember being embarrassed by my Mom when I was his age, and now he is embarrassed of me.  Really??  I am the coolest Mom ever... This was on the way to school, I was playing the radio really loudly and singing like I always do...he ducked down in the seat and begged me not to do it in the parking lot at school...haha!!

So, naturally...I turned into school and cranked it up.   He was so mad at me..he gave me a very dirty look, and slammed the door.  Oh, to be a kid again!!

Thursday at the office we had about an hour between appointments and were all caught up with everything, so I let my co-worker braid my hair...She stepped in after watching me try to braid it myself, and of course fail!!  I can barely braid someone else's hair, much less my own.  It was really messy and loose, which is how I wanted it.  I haven't had my hair braided in years!! 

My lovely neighbors placed these stepping stones in their "flower bed" just for us so we don't have to walk all the way around to their sidewalk...we can just walk from our yard to theirs...via stepping stone...They love us, and make me feel really special!!

The weather has been so nice the last few weeks.  I love sitting outside with a glass of wine, and I especially love people watching...but mostly I just love the wine...

I found this on Instagram, and busted out was all too familiar...

While I was people watching/wine sipping I happened to glance over in Kyle's direction, and this is what he was doing...hmmm...gotta love him!!

A friend recommended a new trilogy that she thought I would like.  It's called The Discovery of Witches by Deborah E. Harkness.  She described it as having witches (which I husband swears I'm a witch, but I'm really not...), vampires, and I don't remember what else, but she did say it's a love all sounded right up my alley, so I ordered it from Amazon...  I started reading it Wednesday night and it made me fall asleep before I got to chapter 2.  Most of the books I read keep me awake because they are so good I can't put them down....She promised me that if I can get through the beginning I will like it...I'm not so sure about this, folks... but I am going to keep reading...Have any of you read it?

Thanks for stopping by to read my H54F...I have a busy/fun weekend that I am looking forward to.  Everyone have an amazing weekend, and do something fun.  You totally deserve it!!!
