High Five For FRIDAY!

In all my three years of blogging, I have never participated in a 'High Five For Friday' or '5 On Friday' post. Realizing this has me wondering why it has taken me so long to figure out that sometimes you just need to rejoice that the week is over and in my case, try to find the positive in a bad week. So here goes...

I got to start my week by taking a Monday off with my soldier, and we spent it cuddled up on the couch watching PS. I Love You. Cried through the whole movie, of course.

I have gotten to eat all kinds of goodies this week- chocolate covered bacon, pumpkin bread, and homemade coconut carrot cake that Will made for my 'birthday'. However, this is also a TERRIBLE thing, because I can't work it off until this leg heals, and I'm pretty sure I have to trump this up to stress eating. Yeah, that's a good excuse, we'll go with that.

I had a coupon to Vanity AND they were having a big sale. Funny story, I thought that I bought this one jacket a few weeks ago, planned an outfit around it, and then realized that I passed it up. That seemed like a sign that I needed to go back for it, and low and behold, it was ANOTHER 50% off. Totally worth the wait.

I contributed to Helene's 10 Things That Are More Important post on Thursday. She is flippin' funny, and I feel blessed that she featured me as one of the ten stories. I won't tell you what it is, so you will just have to go over and find out. Just be excited.
  Ding Ding Ding Da Da Ding Ding.

I have all of YOU, and I mean it when I say that YOU helped me get through this week and the past three years! I appreciated every comment on the last post, and they definitely helped me make it through the past two days. As a matter of fact, I'm going to try to apply all the advice for the next four months, because if I candle this...I can handle anything.
I WILL persevere!

There is snow on the ground this morning, so I'm pretty sure that I will be in full on hibernation mode this weekend. Let's see if I can manage to not leave my house and heal this leg! What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?

That story about the jacket is like one of the best clothes-buying stories I've ever heard! That's too funny that you actually thought you had bought it. I know I've had moments when I just can't seem to remember if I own something I want to wear or if I just imagined owning it... :P

Jenn said...

I can't believe you have snow. I was wearing flip flops yesterday. What the eff?
Glad you have some things to be happy about this week! Sometimes we all need those to get us through!

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

Tell me more about the chocolate covered bacon, in lots of detail! Haha. That jacket is so pretty and obviously it was meant to be. I can't believe it is snowing, too soon hibernating is a must!

The Pink Growl said...

SNOW?!?! Wow! Such a cute pic of you and your honey! I know it's been a tough week but I hope your weekend makes you a smiling happy pretty girl!

Jen said...

We are finally getting some cooler weather here in Texas and it's amazing! :)

Helene in Between said...

Cece said...

That jacket is so cute!! Glad you got an even better deal when you went back. We are still in the high 70's over in these parts. It's pretty chilly in the morning and at night though. Happy Friday!

Kelly said...

Omg snow?! I sure don't miss that.

Kenzie S said...

I cry every time I watch PS I Love You, and any other movie similar to it ha ha.

Oh I like that link up! I will have to try it one Friday! I think it's great to look at all of the positives in a week. Sometimes it's hard to find, but great to celebrate all that is great!
Weather here is beautiful! Sunny and the humidity is finally leaving, so it's nice to be outside.

Chocolate covered bacon sounds kind of awful but kind of good at the same time, ha! How was it??
And #3? That never happens to me! They probably wouldn't have that jacket in my size anymore. Seriously!! Best luck ever, girl!
