High Five for Friday

Yesterday felt like Friday to about you?  I figured out early on that it was only Thursday. Later in the day my Mom and I had a conversation, and she was talking as if it were Friday, I was like "Mom, today is not Friday.." She said "oh, you're right!" Then let out a really funny laugh.  What a nerd, apparently I get my nerdiness from her. Thursday was a beautiful day...cold, but beautiful.  So, that can only mean that today must be even better, right? Right!

Here are the highlights from my week...

Double denim and old school roller skates...that's how I rolled over the weekend..
(that's so punny)

We went to my Nieces birthday party. I thought she was turning 13, (Aunt fail) my Mom did too (Grandma fail) She made me text my sister to ask. She turned 12.  I can barely keep up with my own age, so I think it's an excusable mishap of judgement...err forgetfulness.

okay, so picture this...

Fifteen..twelve year old girls, and Trey.  
What a stud!
He thought he was a cool dude 
(he pretty much is..he gets his coolness from his Mom)
It was kinda cute to see a few of the girls chasing him around.  
He loved it!

I skated, and skated, and laughed, and sang, and sweat..I had so much fun!
I needed a day like that!  It was very refreshing.

 My brother in law played DJ..he played all old school 80's...even dedicated Carrie, by Europe, to me... so sweet..ha!.  Chris, Lynn and I felt acted like we were teenagers again...we held hands while we skated, pretended we were Olympic speed skaters..raced each was all smiles all was a blast!

I only fell down a few times...still have the bruises to prove it.  One time I got super excited because a good song came I was skating around a turn..I, perhaps a little overzealously, threw both my arms up in the air and screamed "woooooohooo!!!" and umm, then my feet flew straight out from under me and I quickly landed on my butt/back/with a partial twisted knee underneath me.  I.could.not.stop.laughing.  About three little girls skated over to me and were like "omg are you ok?"
I couldn't move..all I could do was laugh.

Skating is great!
Who wants to go skating with me?

So, I guess since Trey and I wear the same size he thinks it's okay to wear my shoes?  After smelling them I don't want them back..little boys have super stinky feet (peee ewww) I have to admit though that he is kinda rockin the my chucks!

I had a great run this week..  I came home, and my husband had my hot water ready for my tea. When it's cold outside my body really appreciates a cup of hot tea and honey after a longish run.  He also cooked dinner that night.  What's going on around here?

Speaking of sweet..I woke up from a nap one day to find that some little boy had snuck into my room and left me a treat.  He sure knows the way to his Mama's heart with hand written notes and Reese cups.
It made my day!

I noticed the birds have been hanging around the house lately, so I decided to give them a treat.  I have been hanging onto these favors that Nicole gave me from her baby shower, so I finally hung one on my tree in the front yard.  I heart my birds..and now they heart me too..

I also heart the Delirium trilogy.  I've mentioned it before.  ;-)  Have you started it yet? Finished it yet? I convinced two of my girlfriends to jump on the bandwagon, and so far they love it.  Here's one of my favorite lines from Pandemonium..(the second book)

Well said.

Do you watch American Horror Story?  If you've been hanging around my blog for a while you already know that I like to watch some really off the wall creepy stuff, so of course I'm a huge AHS fan.  The first season was about ghosts, the second was Nazi's and aliens...the third season...they announced this week will revolve around witches..most of it being filmed in New Orleans.  I love me some witches...more like fascinated, really...and can't wait for this new season to begin in the fall.  Who's with me?

On Wednesday...the first day of Spring I wore my new favorite baseball tee that I scored from the Gap outlet.  1.  It was faahreezing cold in Tennessee on the first day of Spring.  2.  I pretty much dig this shirt.  and 3.  I think this teal (?) turquoise (?) aqua (?) is my new it color for this Spring/Summer.  Yerp.

Old Navy is having a massive dress sale.  what, what!  Look, see..there's my new it color again.  I think I'm gonna have to get that dress, but I don't think I'll make it before the sale is over.  Figures.  

It's called the eyelet dress. It also comes in other colors, but I like this one the best.  You should go shopping this weekend and take advantage of this amazing sale!  I will most definitely be buying a ton of new dresses this season since only one from last season fits me....(whoop) they're all too big!  

This is our "we're super pumped that it's spring break, face!"  Trey and I are packed up, and as soon as school lets out we are heading out of town. We're takin off, we're runnin away... Instead of sitting at home freezing ourselves to death.. we're gonna go hang out by a body of water, snuggle movies .. and do whatever we want.. for four days! I have several bottles of wine, four pairs of leggings, a handful of soft vintage tee's, my book, and my favorite fluffy blanket.  Trey has a fishing pole and his favorite hat.  I think we're all set.

Quote of the day...

"I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude.  It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position.  Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress.  It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope.  When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me."
Charles R. Swindoll

Attitude is everything.
Have a lovely weekend.



  1. Have a great week with your special boy! It sounds like a lakehouse kinda week! You look awesome by the way! XOXO
