High Five for Friday

Normally, I do my Friday Things post on Friday, but today I thought I’d mix it up a little bit by linking up with Lauren of From My Grey Desk Blog. Every Friday, she talks about five things she’s loving about the week, and other bloggers post their links on her site (which is adorable, by the way).

Here’s what I’m loving this Friday:

1. I finally finished my fall craft. It’s in the process of drying on my kitchen table, but once I shake some of the excess glitter off and make room on top of our cabinets, we will have a new addition to our festive kitchen.

2. Remember how I couldn’t stress enough how much I love Mackinaw? When I was cleaning out my room at my parents’ house, I found a picture of my cousin and I in Mackinaw, circa 2004. I found some from years prior too, but I’ll spare the bangs and braces pictures :). This is from the summer that we turned 16 (fun fact: we were born 8 days apart).

3. Tomorrow night, my dad and I are running the Dragstrip Dash 5K. It’ll be my first evening race, and I’m excited to see how it goes! My only challenge will be figuring out what to eat before the race — I don’t usually run at night. I guess I better plan my lunch accordingly!


I don’t talk much about my love for Taylor Swift, because it’s kind of my sister’s thing. However, I really do love her — she made it to the top without losing her class, and I admire that. Two days ago, my sister was kind enough to let me make a copy of Taylor’s new CD, ‘Red’. I’ve been listening to it on repeat ever since.

5. Yesterday marked two months until Christmas… two months until our first Christmas as a married couple! I don’t want to rush the next two months away, but I am excited :).

What are you loving this week?

  1. High five to finding things to love about the present (fall crafts!), the past (Mackinaw Island), the future (Christmas!), something borrowed (T-Swift), and something new (evening racing) … it’s such a well-rounded and balanced portrayal of your life. It really made me smile!! :)

  2. Omg I love Taylor’s new cd. I always tell everyone we would be best friends if we ever met. The song All Too Well is my favorite of her new ones. I also love 22, mostly because I am 22 haha

      1. And sorry, I wrote that comment very late at night, I always tell everyone me and taylor would be best friends. I just realized that sounded creepy, although I think you and I would be friends too! haha Although I guess it is still creepy to be telling people me and a pop star I never met would be best friends. ;p
