Five Things #FiveThings

Happy Friday all!  Welcome to another edition of #FiveThings, a lot is on the horizon and I’m ready to take on the day.  Let’s get started…


Yes, I said it.  I now have weekends off from work.  While I made the most of my Wednesday/Sunday off schedule, and stayed positive, having weekends off has almost rejuvenated me, and I feel more in sync with everyone around me.  I still work 12:30-9:30pm M-F, but who cares!  Between this job and the jobs I held while in school, I haven’t had weekends off for at least 7 years…{yikes!!! did I really just say SEVEN…YEARS?!}.  While I am absolutely loving Charlotte, it also gives me time for some weekend trips to visit my very best of friends.  Which, speaking of…

We Goin’ To Tha Beach

With Jimmy on the road for another weekend of work {:( }, I decided to stretch my legs and do a little traveling to visit one of my old college roommates in honor of my first weekend off!  {Plus, I miss her and she isn’t too far away}.  Tomorrow morning, I’m going to wake up bright and early to visit my friend, Allison, who lives in Wilmington, NC.  It is going to be so great to see her!  As I was going through the archives to find a picture of us {which there are many}, I decided on these two…we were such babies, still in undergrad…

From, I want to say ’08 or ’09 in Daytona for Spring Break?

And then, I couldn’t pass this gem up from Christmahanakwanzaka…

Throwbacks for sure.

One of the many reasons I love North Carolina is for all it has to offer.  Want to go to the mountains?  Take a left.  Want to go to the beach?  Take a right.  {not exactly that easy, but you know what I mean}.  Living in NC most of my life, the beach=summer=beach, they were one in the same.  This year, I haven’t been once.  Between the shoreline and getting to see Allison, I’m more than ready for the weekend.

My Shows are Back On!

This time of year means my shows are coming back.  The list:  Modern Family, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Glee, Parks and Rec, Nashville, any maybe a few others here and there…I’m open to more show suggestions, although I don’t know if I have any more time for another!

And of course, thank goodness for Hulu Plus because I can never catch these shows when they air.

Needing a Scarf

Anyone that knows me knows I have an obscene amount of scarves…for what reason I don’t know.  Between simply liking them and last winter’s crocheting extravaganza I somehow ended up with close to a million {okay, maybe not that many}.  Either way, I love scarves and how they can keep you warm, but are also great accessories for this time of year.  It’s still pretty warm down here in NC, but every now and then you’ll feel a cool breeze or get a hint of fall and know it’s right around the corner.  It’s not here yet, but it sure is trying.  That’s another great thing about NC…you get to feel all of the seasons.  It’s not always hot or always cold, it transitions very nicely {and it snows once, maybe twice…which is all I need}.


I would like all of these things served to me on a platter while I’m wearing a scarf.  Please and thank you.

PBF Green Drink

This thing has been my saving grace more than a few times for breakfast in these past weeks.  I originally found this recipe on Peanut Butter Fingers blog almost a year ago, and I’ve kept it in my back pocket ever since.  For her green drink recipe, click here.  I like to include half of an avocado and replace the 1 cup water with 1 cup carrot juice (hence the off-green color).  I’m a firm believer in making breakfast one of the most important meals of the day, and I’m a stickler for getting all my veggies in…this baby does the trick, especially when I’m rushing around between the gym and work.

Well, well, well…another episode of Five Things is complete.  So now it’s your turn.

What are your Five Things this week?
