    Donut even tell me you don’t know today is… National Donut Day!! Line out the door, but I still got two dozen 🙂 A little pun fun for the office! @heygirlhill tagged me in @meghanpaigetarry’s IG  – so worthy of a repost! I’m feeling all sorts of content… Thanks, Clare! …and NOT because it’s all about the donuts today! Every week has it challenges and opportunities, this week just seems to be one of those good ones. I think it’s because I’m getting back into my workout routine and incorporating running. I know my ‘fluff’ won’t go away overnight, but I can appreciate working hard toward see it melt away…slowly……

This weekend is a busy one, but I’m excited because it includes family, friends, and footy! Some of my favorite F words! Happy FIVE-ing… Five Things I Ate 1. Mini Choco Chip Pizookie – a dessert I kinda shared with J on Wednesday. I took a pic, but when I did the back-up on my new phone it went away 🙁 2.

    Today more than ever, do I need to remind myself of happiness… Thanks, Clare! Too many thoughts swirling around my head without the perfect forum to verbalize them.

Pitch Perfect 2 – No, not deja vu, I wrote about this yesterday. But I’m a changed woman! I saw the movie last night, ACA-awesomely it wasn’t crowded in the theater!

    Five Things Friday – Be Happy!

    Smiling…for no reason! Thanks, Clare! Not that it should be a bad thing, but I’m in a great mood today. I guess, sometimes I feel bad for being so happy and content with my life. There are so many ugly things happening, in addition to hurt and pain, and I’m sitting here smiling at what I have and what surrounds me. So today, I will only post 5 Things That Are Making Me Happy and keep it to just that: 1. National Sibling Day — Today is that day. If you’ve been around these parts at all, then it’s not really important that I remind you how amazing it is…

    Five Things (Finally It’s) Friday

    Oh hey Friday the 13th! Thanks, Clare! I was going to attempt to do what Clare does each week, but since I always share my life instantly, I don’t have much stuff saved up for FTF’s post. Also, I’m kinda in a writing rut. I know I just need to do a free write, but I haven’t had a post to do so. I know it’s my blog, but I tend to stick to the same schedule, for lack of a better word. Next week, I intend on doing a free write on one of the things I am most self conscious about, stay tuned! Since you already know my…

    5 Surprises (not Things) Friday!

    I love surprises! Thanks, Clare! I’m just not that great with receiving them, even though I love getting them. I wouldn’t say I’m full Type-A material, but I think I am on the cups of Type-A and B. That being said, I like to know the details, the plan, and to think of back-ups as needed. And my intuition is pretty, I mean really, good. I normally pick up on surprises well before they happen. Kudos to J and his accomplices, I was astonished, surprised, and am still smiling from ear to year. Sometimes you need to let others take the wheel and be surprised! Technically he only had four…

    Five Things Friday – Like It’s Supposed to Be

    “Go take a Napa, you don’t move to Napa!” Thanks, Clare! Guess that movie? Obviously, if you don’t get it, then maybe we aren’t that good of friends! HAHA, just kidding, of course. Mr. Big, always breaking Carrie’s heart! I digress. I’m excited to get out of town this weekend and enjoy Napa, enjoy it so much I’m even going to run through 26.2 miles of it – well that’s the plan anyways! But you already know this so I’m going to keep it simple and follow Clare’s style for Five Things Friday! Five Things I Ate: 1. La Fiesta Cheese Enchiladas – these have been my go to during…

    Five Things Friday – Our Coffee Date

    Let’s pretend for a second… Thanks, Clare! Let’s get lost in a very cute, hippie chic coffee shop. We are sitting in some slightly uncomfortable wooden chairs, leaning on a concrete slab table, and enjoying each others company. Here are the things I’d probably talk to you about… Source 1. Wanderlust – My sincere obsession with going on a vacation is really insane right now. All I keep thinking about is being at the beach for 10 days with J and/or my family on vacation. No responsibilities, fun adventures, being sun kissed, and reading copious amounts of books. Also throw in a few adult beverages and you’re basically living my…
