Friday Five

Happy Friday Friends! I'm finally getting around to joining the blog world this week, better late than never I guess. I decided to take a spring break of sorts from blogging this week and spend my precious free time not typing out hilarious/deep/moving/interesting posts. What have I been doing this week instead of blogging you ask. Well here is a list of 5 ways I spent all my free time.

1. Working on my April Goals. Monday night I realized we only had a little over a week left of April and I still had a lot of work to do on my goals. I'm proud to say I did a great job on these this week and I'm feeling good about finishing this month strong. I'm most proud of myself for figuring out how to install the "Pin It" button, so please go pin something from my blog (Maybe from this post or this one)

2. Catching up on reading my favorite blogs. One of my favorite parts about blogging is actually reading other blogs, but when there are so many great blogs to read and only so many hours in a day some of my favorites go unread for days at a time. I was able to devote a lot more time this week to being a good blog reader, since I failed as a blog writer.

3. Not drinking tap water. Did you see my tweet about not having water in our house on Monday? Well after 5 hours of literally zero water in our house it finally was turned back on which was a relief because earlier in the day I'd had to go to the mall just to use the bathroom! We're still under a boil water notice which means today is the 5th day I've had to use bottled water to brush my teeth. This major disaster inconvenience inspired me to donate to the Water Project fundraiser that Elizabeth of Southern Finesse is doing in honor of her 1 year blogiversary. If you donate just $23 before the end of the month you'll help a person get clean water AND she'll design you a new blog button! Seriously such a great idea!!

4. Reading things on the internet in general. This article about finding plan B when you realize your dream career isn't your dream anymore is great. If you're looking for something a bit more humorous I suggest this article from Post Grad Problem.

5. I know this song is old but I've been on a major JT kick lately and this song makes me feel like summer and I love it so I've been listening to on repeat
Señorita by Justin Timberlake on Grooveshark

Linking up with Erica and Whitney and Lauren Elizabeth today and so should you!


  1. Thank you so much for featuring The Water Project!! You are awesome.

    I can't remember if I ever sent you an email to get started on your blog button. I've been a little scatterbrained this week. haha Let me know so I can do that!

  2. I hate getting behind on my favorite blogs, but you're right...there are only so many hours in the day!
    I always have a stalking day where I comment on all of the missed posts and come off as a real creeper. But who doesn't love a stalker?

  3. Blogging is all about connecting. I'm with ya--catching up on blog reads is fun! Have a great weekend!

  4. I stay behind on my blog reading but I do my best. It's tough to stay updated on everyone's lives :)

  5. Thanks for linking up :) I have been getting back in the bloggy swing of things too. It comes and goes for me sometimes!


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
