15 Thing Friday

1. Guess who got up AGAIN at 5am and made it to the gym?? THIS KID DID!!! Seriously-- there was a time, not too long ago, when this was the NORM and not something that needed to be celebrated. Whoops.

2. Song of the moment:

3. There's a high school directly across the street from the college I work at and they just started marching band practice. All day. Drums. BANGING. All. Freaking. Day.

4. My Father-in-Law and I are running this 5K race this weekend together! I'm pretty pumped! I'm just doing it for fun... not really "racing" it or anything. it's supposed to be a great course with views of Lake Michigan and some BRUTAL hills. Can't wait!!!!
My FIL at our last race!
5. Speaking of the weekend-- the weather is supposed to be AMAZING this weekend!
Some people are bitching that it's too cold for late May. NOT ME. I LOVE it. That's my favorite kind of weather. Love, love, love.

6. I just started watching Parenthood on Netflix Instant and I'm OBSESSED. Seriously. This show is good. You should check it out.
Not only is the show just plain great... but, it has Loralei from Gilmore Girls. SOLD.

7. Speaking of Netflix Instant-- seriously... what did people do before it?!?!?

8. The Hubs and I have been all about the long walks with Sadie lately.
The weather's been pretty good... though it's already hot and that makes me reallllllly worried about the rest of the summer when the LOWS are 80s. Wah wah. It's such a tough life, I know.

9. I legit did not realize until 10:30am on Thursday that it was THURSDAY and not FRIDAY. Talk about a bummer. Seriously.

10. I started my day off in the best possible way. Ok, well waking up at 5am wasn't the best way. But, after the gym-- this happened.
Ginormous skinny vanilla latte. LOOOOOOVE. Even better? It was FREE because I won a gift card a long time ago.

11. Just a reminder:
Thanks, Dove. Both for the chocolate and the inspiration.

12. My nephew graduated kindergarten.
He's SO big. I can't handle it. I can remember when he was just a few days old and so tiny. CRAZY how fast he's grown up. He's too cute for words.  

13. This article actually doesn't have almost ANYTHING that I would say HAS to go together.... but, #5 is SOLID.

14. Last night I was flipping through the TV channels and saw a kid eating fruit loops on something in passing and now ALL I can think about is FRUIT LOOPS. Omg. I was BEYOND tempted to get up and drive to the store just to buy a box and some milk. I resisted. However, this happened instead:
Seemed like a good idea at the time.



  1. I had a less than stellar week in regards to motivation but you know, some weeks are better than others. Way to go on the 5 am gym thing - I will always think you are nut for this! Just get the Fruit Loops, otherwise you will think about them FOREVER! I couldn't be happier about the long weekend. As in I legit could barely sit in my seat today! Good luck on the 5k!

  2. Have fun at your race this weekend! I hope that the hills aren't too brutal.

    I love Parenthood. I have been a religious viewer since the show started. It is fantastic, you almost feel like you are part of the family in some weird way.
