Five on Friday 2.6.15

I am so excited to be linking up with April, Christina, Natasha, and Darci for Five on Friday!


Thank goodness it’s Friday. I’m pretty sure I say that every week, but it’s also true every week. Hallelujah for the weekend.

Five on Friday 1I had the weirdest conversation with one of my kids yesterday. I actually had to say “You really shouldn’t swallow other people’s spit.” Never thought those words would come out of my mouth. Gotta love the endless entertainment though.

Five on Friday 2

I just finished Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury as part of my 2015 Reading List (stay tuned for that post), and I was completely unimpressed. Call me uncultured, but this is supposed to be an example of classic modern literature? Ick. Give me a book by Nora Roberts any day. Although the concept was interesting, I hate the writing style. Way too flowery for me. I’m also not big on the symbolism. Sometimes a tree is just a tree! Anybody else feel that way?

2015 GoalsComing up next week, I’ll be sharing some of my goals for 2015. I know, I know. It’s February. I’d like to think that if I’m just getting around to sharing them, that must mean I’m actually sticking with them. Here’s a hint: 1500 miles. Intrigued?

Five on Friday 4

Thursday nights just keep getting better and better.

Five on Friday 5

Is anybody else super excited for the return of Walking Dead on Sunday? I am, I am! The end of the mid-season finale was heartbreaking, so I’m even more excited than usual to see what happens.

Happy Friday!

Life Update Part 3: Work Work Work

I’ve been (not so) noticeably absent lately, but I realized that I never finished updating you guys on my life after graduation! You can read Part 1 and Part 2 here.

Remember my minor freak out over employment after graduation and before (hopefully) grad school? Well, I decided to just find a job and worry about possibly getting another job for school later.

Luckily, I was able to find a job fairly quickly – as a nanny to three kids (a boy and two girls)! The oldest is 4, and the two younger girls are almost 2 and 5 months. It’s definitely one of the most difficult things that I’ve done, but it’s oh so fun at the same time.


Plus, I get to wear yoga pants to work. If that’s not a win, I don’t know what is.
