Five on Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  It's been a rainy week here in Michigan, but the weekend forecast looks nice, so I'm hoping to be able to get outside and enjoy it.  Today's Five on Friday is totally random--you've been warned.

ONE.  On Tuesday night, Kevin and I went and saw Aloe Blacc and Bruno Mars in concert.  It was one of the best concerts I have ever been to!  If you ever get the chance to see Bruno Mars in concert, you have to go--it was so awesome!  Non-stop singing and dancing (from Bruno and the crowd), his band is excellent, and just the entire show in general was great.  Here's a few pics from the night:

Aloe Blacc

TWO.  Tomorrow we are having a 50th Birthday party for my mother-in-law.  Can't wait to share some of the details next week!

THREE.  Admiral is three years old, and over the past year, he has become terrified of loud noises, such as fireworks, gunshots, thunder, etc.  He instantly tucks his tail, starts shaking, and either climbs on my lap, or heads to the basement.  Yesterday, someone on our street was doing some kind of fireworks, so Admiral headed for the basement and wouldn't come up.  Anyone else's pet afraid of loud noises?  Any ideas to help him?

FOUR.  I'm trying to eat a little healthier again, so the other day I made a quinoa, chickpea, and avocado salad and it's really good!  You can find the recipe HERE on

FIVE.  My one-year wedding anniversary is in nine days!  That year definitely flew by!

Have a great weekend!!
