Five on Friday

I'm so happy Friday is here!  My job keeps me really busy, so the weeks have been flying by since I started a little over two months ago.  However, this week has seemed to drag for some reason, so I'm really glad that it's Friday.

ONE.  Do any of you follow @EliteDaily on Instagram?  I just found their account last weekend and I love it!  If you need something to make you laugh or some words of wisdom, be sure to check it out.  You won't be disappointed.

TWO.  Tonight I have plans to go see Fifty Shades of Grey with my girls (my sister, sister-in-law, and best friend).  I read the books and now I'm excited to see the movie.  Did you read the books?  Do you plan to see the movie?


THREE.  Kevin and I have no big plans for Valentine's Day.  No fancy dinner or anything, and that's just fine with us.  After being in Cincinnati last weekend, we are looking forward to a weekend at home together.  I'm sure we'll watch a movie at home and just hang out--sounds like a great Valentine's Day to me!

FOUR.  Speaking of Valentine's Day...the only decorations I had for Valentine's Day were a cute kitchen towel and a red/pink candle.  I really want to add more to our Valentine's decor.  Even thought we don't make a big deal of Valentine's Day at our house, it would be fun to add some cute, colorful decor to the house around this time of year--the cold and snow get old after a while.  Here are some of the DIYs on my list for next year:

Chevron Heart Door Hanger
From Making It In The Mitten
Gold Glitter Felt Rosette Love Sign for Valentines Day
From My Crafty Spot

FIVE.  I REALLY want to make myself get out of bed earlier in the mornings.  Especially so I can work out in the mornings, since I don't always have time or feel like it after work.  I don't like to be rushed in the mornings and I've been hitting the snooze so much every morning that I'm running around like crazy trying to get out of the house for work every morning.  Does anyone have any tips for helping myself get in the routine of getting out of bed earlier?  Once I actually get up and out of bed, I'm's the whole getting out of the warm, cozy bed when it's still dark out and super cold thing that the hardest for me.  Tips are greatly appreciated!

This is so fucking true. For me, the pain of being morbidly obese was far worse than getting up early to work out or dealing with sore muscles all day. There is no comparison.
That quote is so true and great motivation...hopefully I can start this by working out in the mornings this weekend to start me on the right track.

Have a great weekend and stay warm!  Our windchill is supposed to be -31 degrees on Sunday morning...too cold for me!


  1. Eeekk! I can’t wait to see 50 Shades!! Love your DIY list – the black striped love is so cute! Found your blog from the linkup – new follower :)
    Xo, Christina

  2. I read the books too and I can't wait to see the movie! You'll have to let me know how it is!

  3. Aww, I'm so excited that one of my projects made your list!

    We aren't doing much for Valentine's Day this year either... Chinese take-out and renting a movie and I am perfectly okay with that! I want to see 50 shades so bad, but I'll probably wait until its out to rent. I don't go to the movie theater very often, unless its something we both really want to see.
    Have a fabulous night with your Valentine!
