    5 Things Friday – Short && Sweet, but I Prefer Sassy

    Just keepin’ it to five… Thanks, Clare! It’s been a minute since I’ve done this link-up, but I’m back at it this week. I don’t really feel like writing much today, so here is my lame attempt for today, sorry! Uneasy // I have absolutely no reason to be, but I’ve had an uneasy or unsettling feeling the last two days. I cannot, for the life of me, pin point why or where it’s coming from. Maybe it’s my intuition or maybe it’s misplaced, but whatever it is, it seems to be hindering my Christmas spirit. Everything is going good and normal, so I can’t fathom a reason I would…

    5 Things Friday – It's Baaaaccck….

    I decided to get a little creative last week, but I’m back on track… Thanks, Clare! 5 Things I’m Looking Forward Too This Weekend: 1. Baby Zachary’s baptism – Grateful I was asked to witness such a milestone for the Gangl family! 2. Actually getting to use a Living Social deal that I thought was going to go unused. Three of us bought the deal so that six of us could go taste and on a tour. But we just couldn’t get all six girls schedules to work, so Jenn and I will go swoop the 6 bottles of wine and get our tasting on! 3. Trin-Monies last roller derby…

    5 Things Friday – Friday Five(teen)

    It’s Friday…already! Thanks, Clare! I don’t get to say that often, but this week flew by fast! I’m okay with that, that just means the weekend seemed to get here faster than normal! 5 Things I Found Extremely Funny on the Internet: 1. Who doesn’t love a good PUN? If these don’t cheer you up, then I’m afraid you are just determined to be in a bad mood. Some are really wonky, but most are hilarious! 2. What are you? I have gotten this question way more times than I’d like to tell – #4, #11 (really bugs me), #15 (just cause I love food), and #19 (for real)! 3.…

    Five Things Friday – 5er

    Happy Almost Weekend… Thanks, Clare! Just a straight-up fiver today…nothing more, nothing less. 5 Things Friday: Mother Efffin’ World Series Baby // So yeah, that happened last night. My Gmen made it to the World Series, to the Fall Classic, to the dance! They will be playing, the crazy good (at the moment) and on fire KC Royals. I won’t lie, I’m scared shitless for how they will do. Don’t get that twisted with the idea that I won’t be cheering like hell for them and hoping they pull WINS with their scrappy ways. I’m just trying to be a realist with an optimistic heart! I believe it was serendipitous…

    Cinco, cinco, cinco, cinco… Thanks, Clare! Comin’ at you (in sets of) five different ways… 5 Things I’m Grateful for This Week: 1.

    5 Things Friday – Orange && Black

    Sometimes being a SF Giants fan is heartbreaking… Thanks, Clare! …other times it amazing. Seriously, my boys in Orange && Black love to keep us on an emotional roller coaster. Pre all-star-break they were killin’ it, although those pesky Dodgers were close behind. Now, I’m celebrating them ending a six game loosing streak! Gah! They break my heart on a continual basis, but I guess that’s how it goes as a Giants fan! I honestly, wouldn’t have it any other way. A day/evening spent at the Yard is magical. So, I thought I’d convince show you, you should love my boys and AT&T Park, just as much as I do!…

    Literally, just five today! Thanks, Clare! Just keeping it short and sweet for you! Seems fitting, so I’m going with it… 1. State Fair – If you should be so lucky to have your State Fair in your city, then you know what I’m talking about. All things Carnie’s and fried goodness attack you at some point during your trip! Luckily the #CAStateFair has it all – from Carnie headquarters (the Midway), to the ever so popular Hypnotist, to all things fried and unhealthy, to air conditioned buildings that are stalls on stalls of infomercials brought to life, to the secret wine garden, to all types of stinky animals for…
