High Five for Friday!

It’s funny because when I typed High Five for Friday! what I meant was high five for friday….because it is raining and gross out and I need this to not be a trend. I know, it has only rained today but the grayness…ahh, I am scared that will continue forever and by forever I mean until April when all I can think about is the scene in Bambi where all the animals in the forest gather to see Fawn’s new baby (that is exactly how I think of Spring…). Clearly I have too much time on my hands now because I only have 2! TWO! weddings left in 2012. I am again sad and happy. Today more sad because it is raining. Ok…onto the rest of this crazy post!


My trainer thinks I am nuts. I am starting to believe him. I signed up this week to do the Run for Recovery 10 Miler (March 24th), Cherry Blossom 10 Miler (on April 7th with my friend Tina and her awesome team but we won’t know for sure if we got in until the 18th), all to prepare for the Iron Girl Half Marathon (April 28th) so I can get a 3rd medal that says Titanium Girl after running the Frederick Half Marathon on the 5th of May. It’s time to get back into the best shape ever!! And this weather is not very motivating today. But a Titanium Girl medal???? Come on, I have to have that!


This cooking class I am taking with my mom is really awesome. I have learned so much in just the two classes that I have been to, it is pretty awesome. Last night for dinner I made chicken (which I butterflied for more even cooking) with a port wine and cranberry sauce and orzo risotto which was just awesome. If you are interested in signing someone up as a Christmas present, now is the time. I can say for sure that I will be taking the advanced class once this is over and she makes her pizza class sound like so much fun. Here is a link to her site: For the Love of Food.


A mash up of all of the top songs of 2012…actually pretty cool. I was impressed. Just go ahead and hit play and listen as you scroll through the rest of this post.


I pretty much died of laughter when I saw number 5 on this site of 19 people who are having a worse day than you.


I thought this was pretty cool given my old job at a transplant community – previously blind photographers who got the gift of new corneas.


Is anyone else as excited about Boy Meets World coming back on TV? Yeah, I didn’t think so. And Mr. Feeney? Well, he just died on Grey’s Anatomy and it made me sad and I actually got teary reading these life lessons from Mr. Feeney.


Listen, I love love love Anthropologie, but my heart does stop when I see some prices on things that I find to be just ridiculous. Apparently, I am not the only one.


I am obsessed the day the Ikea catalogue comes to my house. I look at it from cover to cover multiple times a day. I can’t imagine looking at it in 1965 but this gives us an idea of what it would have been like.


Just go ahead and fast forward to 1:57, you have seen the previous 2 minutes already. My bro email this to me this week and said that he needs to find a medium between not doing anything and doing this when he moves back to the ‘burbs.

Personally, I think this is more my style:


Finally, if you didn’t already know, Janice Reyes Photography and I brought back the snap happy hunt!! Janice is also participating in the High Five for Friday posts to share some of her fav images from the week.

I plan to do the same, but I am going to pick my favorite days and my favorite posts from that day. My favorites days this week were looking up and favorite spaces.

My favs from looking up were:

And my favs from favorite spaces were:

I love seeing that people are playing!! Please keep it up, it is the highlight of my day especially on gloomy ones like today. Also, please keep in mind that if your profile is set to private and you don’t follow me and I don’t follow you, I can’t see your posts, and neither can everyone else! And don’t forget, if you miss a day, you can always go back and post a photo, I love seeing that people posted after the fact. You all are awesome!! I hope you have an awesome, ungloomy weekend!!
