Five on Friday

Linking up with ChristinaDarciApril, and Natasha and you should too!

ONE.  We went for a walk the other night since we finally had a decent day weather wise.  Admiral loves to find sticks when we go for walks, and after Kevin pointed a nice big one out to him, he just had to carry for the next half-mile during our walk.

TWO.  I joined the #1800MinuteChallenge (read all about it HERE) and am hoping it helps me stay motivated to exercise for the next couple of months.  I'm hoping to get back in to shape and get toned for this summer...I'm hoping to spend a lot of time at the beach and I want to feel confident in my swim suit this summer!

THREE.  I did some organizing under the kitchen sink the other night, which led me to want to organize more areas of our house.  I have today off from work (because I worked last Saturday and I'm working tomorrow), so I think I'll be spending the day cleaning and organizing.  It always feels good to get some little organizing projects done....but then they always seem to lead to another project.  Anyone else feel the same way?

FOUR.  The ACM Awards are Sunday in Vegas.  While I'd love to go to Vegas for the ACM's or the ACM Party for a Cause Festival (it's the first time they are doing this festival), I am lucky enough to be able to see many of the acts that will be at that festival for free this summer!  I can't wait for the B93 Birthday Bash in June.  They announced the lineup a few weeks ago and this is who will be there:

Saturday, June 7
Lucy Hale, Eric Paslay, Parmalee, Jerrod Niemann, Colt Ford, & Dierks Bentley
Sunday, June 8
The Cadillac Three, Danielle Bradbery, Will Hoge, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell, Brett Eldredge, & Justin Moore

To say that I am excited is an understatement.  I think this will be my 5th or 6th year going to Birthday Bash and I always have a blast every year!  Outdoor country concerts are one of my favorite things about summer!  Are you a fan of country concerts?

FIVE.  I saw the recipe for Slutty Brownies on Carolyn's blog the other day, and I'm pretty sure I will be making them for Easter weekend.  I mean chocolate chip cookies, oreos, and brownies in one?  Yes please!


Hope you have a great weekend!!
