My Friday Five!

Alright y'all, on a scale from 1 to Rebecca Black, how excited are you that it's Friday? Not going to lie, I saw this on Twitter last week and almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard...in the office...no big deal. I guess people are just used to my shenanigans around here!

1. I'm pretty pumped for this weekend for several reasons. (a) We'll be in town. (b) Pup day at the park for the Sugar Land Skeeters. You may recall Maggie attending pup at the park night for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Let's just hope it doesn't get rained out! (c) Relaxing by the pool absorbing the summer sun. (d) Searching for a new dining room table. (e) Houston blogger meet up at Pinot's Palette! I've been dying to make it to a meet up and to go to Pinot's Palette. Talk about killing two birds with one stone! So pumped.

2. At some point this week, I finished my 280th post, I gained my 160th follower and I hit 50,000 pageviews. I know that in the grand scheme of things it may not seem like that much, but it means the world to me. I love knowing that there are people out there that actually enjoy reading what I have to say! I love writing {as long as it's what I want} and this is a wonderful outlet for me. I'm lovin' my little corner of the blog world and look forward to watching it continue to grow. So a BIG HUGE thank you to all of my wonderful followers :)


3. I have to go do allergy testing next week! Eeeep! It's a two day process next Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. Each day last 3-4 hour, so it should be a blast {insert sarcastic eye roll here}. Hopefully this will help me narrow down some foods that are giving my tummy a hard time! Crossing my fingers and wish me luck :)

4. Here's a mini photo dump from my iPhone this week! Nothing too exciting happened around here which resulted in just a few pictures...


Clockwise from top left:
My dinner on Wednesday night - yummy spicy veggie tempeh salad!
Playing tug-o-war with the pup and her new rope
Puppy Chow...2 types mixed together...so addicting
Skinny Cosmo from Cheesecake Factory. Did you know they have a low-cal menu now? It's delish!


It's hard to tell here, but remember when I told y'all that I got pretty banged up from the Gladiator Rock 'n Run? Well here is my entirely purple knee! It's a purple-greenish-blue now. I'm quite colorful!

5. It's summer and it's hot in the sweet south. Short season is among us and I'm loving all the new styles along with the old ones you can always trust and fall back on! To be honest, shorts season starts around March down here, but that doesn't stop me from getting excited about shorts and summertime!


Short and Sweet



(1) Colored denim is fantastic, just saying. I bought a pair of pink shorts similar to the ones above from Cotton On for $20 and I'm obsessed. I'm thinking purple or green next... (2) Lace. Enough said. (3) A good pair of khaki shorts is always a necessity. I love these from Old Navy because they're cute, not too short and inexpensive! (4) I love my Nike running shorts and my Lululemons. Great for lounging around the house on a hot day, walking the dog and of course my fave, running and working out! (5) Nautical stripes for the summer time. These would be perfect for a barbecue, out at the lake, a day at the golf course, etc. (6) Every girl needs a good, solid pair of denim shorts. I love these from True Religion. I don't own them...yet :)
Linking up here!

I know this post was ALL over the place and I hope you were able to follow my random thoughts on this Friday morning. I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! I'm hoping to stay dry with the rain that appears to be on its way!


Until next time...
With love and God bless,
