We officially made it to Friday!!
This has just been one of those super crazy, yet super slow, painful weeks, and I’m so happy to be rid of it! Now I just have to make it through work today, an annual doctors appointment (because THAT’S always a great way to end the week), and then I’m free!!
And it’s even more exciting because we literally have almost NO plans for this weekend. Lots of hanging out, lots of relaxing… I can deal with that.
But anyway, it’s Friday and I’m pretty sure you all know what that means. It’s time for a Five Favorites Friday!
In case you’re unfamiliar with FFF, it’s basically where I list out 5 totally random things that I’m loving this week, and then I get to hear about some of the things that you all are loving!
So let’s dive right in!
1. Favorite Way to Spend an Evening: Food Prep
I have always been really bad at the whole “Sunday evening food prep”. I always go in with good intentions, but it just never really seems to work out. So this past week I was determined to at least get a few things prepped, given our crazy week.
I ended up splitting a package of ground turkey in half, and using half to make turkey breakfast sausages (definitely need a little tweaking in the spice department, they came out blander than I’d hoped) and the other half to make turkey meatballs (which were delicious, and I’m planning on sharing soon!).
2. Favorite Relaxing Activity: Crafts
I know this sounds super lame, but I do love to craft. I find that it’s a great way to de-stress and spend a little “me” time alone. Plus, I like making house decorations, because I hate spending tons of money on house decorations when I can make a lot of them myself! #cheapoalert But this past week I got to spend some time in my craft space downstairs, and managed to knock out like 3 house projects that have been sitting their waiting! Now if only I could find the time to actually hang them up…
3. Favorite Way to Spend a Thursday Night: Hokie Football
Any of you other football obsessed people might have guessed this one was coming. Last night was out first (and only, actually) Thursday night of the season. And you better believe that it took priority over basically everything else. I got off the train, ran home for a 5 minute shower since I was still in gym clothes, and then headed straight to a local bar where the alumni association watches the game. I even ran into Lindsay!
The food was good, the company was great, and the Hokies beat Georgia Tech, so it was an awesome Thursday all around. Even if I didn’t get in bed until after 11:30pm…
4. Favorite YouTube Sensation: This Video
I don’t even have words. I’m literally DYING. #peopletalklikethisinreallife #whatisoursocietycomingto #downfalloftheEnglishlanguage
Just watch. And get an ab workout in from laughing so hard.
5. Favorite September Moments: Birthday Celebrations
I’m not usually a huge birthday celebrator, but this year my friends and family really went all out. I had a surprise work birthday party, a work lunch celebration, my bible study friends brought me a cake, and then I had a cake with Chris’ family to celebrate. Phew! That’s a serious sugar overload! But it was a ton of fun, and I’m so thankful for all of my awesome friends and family who spoiled me.
Speaking of family, my mom got me this awesome card. I’m petrified of sharks, so naturally there is often something shark-related in my presents (so mean!), but this card cracked me up! Especially since shark week is like my personal version of hell. SHARKS EVERYWHERE!
Well there you have it – 5 things I’m loving this week! I hope you all have a great weekend!
So tell me: What are you loving?
