Five on Friday

Sometimes you get sweet little reminders how blessed you really are. Long story short: my Wednesday was no good. I cried and cried, and then once that was done, I cried a little more. I told two of my girlfriends about my day, and they were sooooooo thoughtful to send me "feel better" gifts while I was at work. It's actually kind of unbelievable. Ashley sent me these beautiful flowers, and my cousin/neighbor sent me cookies! It 100% made my day. I am still smiling.

It's true... I am a sucker for these murder trials. I just get all caught up in watching Nancy Grace, even though she annoys me sometimes. I will keep my TV on HLN all weekend long.

After listening to the Bobby Bones Show every morning, I was reminded of how awesome this band is. Y'all already know how obsessed I am with 90's country music. I've told you 500 thousand times. Go ahead and hit the play button below and take a trip back in time with me. Kthnx.

Speaking of music, husband and I are going to a guitar concert this weekend. Sounds confusing right? Well, if you knew my husband, you would know that his favorite music is anything acoustic. He loves Eric Clapton, Trace Bundy, etc. Actually, the song, "Layla" by Eric Clapton was the very reason that we have a furbaby named Layla. We love that song, and it flows perfectly with Skinner. Layla Skinner. Initially, we wanted to save that name for our future human child, but we have a feeling we'll be having boys. SO, therefore, we gave it to our pup.

Last but certainly not least, I get daily reminders that I should "dance in the rain." No, not literally. I would prefer not to have a frizz-fest on my head. But metaphorically, I am learning to (slightly) embrace difficult times in my life. I am by no means perfect and am still adjusting to accepting things I cannot change.


  1. Oh that ashley, she is a sweet one!

  2. Thanks for bringing me back with the song. Made my morning that much better! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. FYI: i had to pause 90's country on Pandora to listen to the song. i hope you listen to that station if not it will make your day even better!

  4. Awh I hate that you were so sad Wednesday but blogger bff's are seriously the best! xoxo! Hope your weekend is fabulous and makes up for the crappy week!

  5. So glad we were able to make your Thursday WAY better than your Wednesday! :) xoxo

  6. So sweet of those friends to send you pick-me-ups! Truly a blessing. Also, I'm LOVING the BBS! It's so great what they're doing for Haiti.

    Perfect quote to start the weekend off with. Life is hard! Dancing in the rain makes it just a little bit easier :).

    Happy Friday!

  7. Aww sweet friend, so sorry you had such a rough day. Feel good flowers are the best. Hope your Thursday and Friday were better. Love ya! xoxo
