Five Things Friday

Aren't you guys glad today really is Friday?  I was so confused yesterday thinking it was Friday, especially when TGIF pictures kept popping up on my instragram.  All day I felt I was checking the calendar to make sure it was still indeed Thursday and I wasn't being delusional.  Short work weeks always confuse me!  Anyway, recently a good friend of mine had a rock climbing accident and last night when I went out with her, her knee definitely looked a little off so she has to go in and get it checked.  Hopefully it isn't anything too terrible but this will be her second major injury.  So her injury prompted today's FTF theme, here goes:

1.  I have broken no bones, thankfully (knock on wood!).  I'm sure it must be painful!

2.  The worst injury I had as a kid was when I was in the 2nd I went on a field trip to the coast, we went to a rocky beach and I slipped and tried to hold on to a rock that was full of muscles!  My hand was totally butchered by the muscles, I had tons of slits.  I remember the teacher had to take me back to the school bus, open up the first aid kit and clean off my hand.  Other than that I had no major injuries, just the usual cuts and bruises!  I wasn't very rambunctious and didn't play any sports (I am extremely uncoordinated), I was a safe kid! 

3.  The worst injury I had as an adult is whiplash from a bad car accident!  I had to go to therapy for it and get some chiropractic work done.  Not to mention all the bruising I had, terrible I tell ya!

4. The worst thing about being injured is not being able to exercise! I love to exercise, so when I slightly hurt my knee or my back hurts and I can't workout it totally bums me out.  Especially in the summer time when I love to run outdoors and go on bike rides.

5.  The best part about being injured is the attention.  My parents and my fiancee totally spoil me :)

**My favorite things from around the web this week is this sloth journal, I'm totally getting this for work once my current notebook runs out!

Five Things Friday

During our Florida trip, we played "Would You Rather" quite a lot, since we had to entertain ourselves somehow with all that plane riding! Here are some Would You Rather questions from the web for this week:

1. Would you rather live in Harry Potter's world, or live a life of fame and wealth? I would rather live in a Harry Potter world! What is fame and wealth compared to a little magic?!

2. Would you rather be fluent in all languages, or a master of every musical instrument? Hmm, that's kind of tough - I've always wanted to learn both more languages and instruments! I guess I would rather be able to play the instruments. I feel like that would provide a wider range of entertainment.

3. Would you rather have no one show up to your wedding, or your funeral? My funeral, I guess? I wouldn't even know, if I was dead! Or I would have outlived everyone I knew, maybe!

4. Would you rather be stuck for 5 hours in a broken elevator, or on a ski lift? A ski lift I suppose, since I would get very claustrophobic and bored in the elevator, but at least on the ski lift I'd have a view to look at...

5. Would you rather only be able to talk in a whisper, or only be able to shout? Whisper I guess, since always shouting would be really annoying.

**My favorite thing from around the web this week is: Cakes that can talk!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Five Things Friday

I received the cutest moving announcement from my cousin earlier this week.  The postcard got me thinking about all the times that I've moved, hence today's FTF is all about moving!  

1.  I've moved about 8 times during my life.  Maybe more, but at least 8 times that I can fully remember. 

2.  The best part about moving is decoraring a new space!!  I can't wait to move into my house to start decorating!

3.  The worst part about moving is the uncertainty of it all but I guess it depends where you are moving to and who you are with!

4.  I wish I still lived in....oddly enough I like the small town I live in now. 

5.  A moving trick I have is I never fold the clothes in my closet. I always just pack them with the hanger since it makes it easier to unpack them later!!

**My favorite thing from around the web this week is "Kitchen Nightmare's" episode with "Amy's Baking Company" it's sooo intense and ridiculous, definitely a must see!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Five Things Friday

Last week was a very exciting one, because us girls went on a short trip to Florida together! We visited Universal Studios (with Harry Potter World in mind especially - pictured below!) and Seaworld for our two days in Orlando. It was a wonderful time, and I can't wait for another chance to go on a trip together again!

This week's theme is vacations!

1. My favorite thing about vacations is besides for NOT working - seeing and experiencing new places and new things. This trip my friends made me go on roller coasters for the first time (which I have always been terrified of doing), and after some deliberation I decided I think I like them!

2. I like to get souvenirs that are clothes, since it's often hard to find other things that are actually useful. And it's not like I'd say no to some new clothes!

3. They should make a theme park with a  Lord of the Rings  theme next. They haven't made one already yet, have they? Everyone knows how much I love hobbits!

4. The best thing about being home again after a trip is taking a big long nap, and having a home-cooked meal!

5. Someplace I'd like to visit in the future is the Moab desert for a Syncro Solstice, where all the boxy-type VW vans get together (even if like ours, they aren't exactly Synrco 4x4s). It would be so cool to be amidst a herd of other VW vans and their doting owners!

**My favorite thing from around the web this week is sort of along the travel theme here, this map shower curtain and this map duvet cover.

Have a great weekend everyone!
