Five on Friday

Aren't Fridays the best? I'm so glad it's finally almost the weekend! I'm linking up with The Good Life, A. Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, and Hello Happiness for 5 on Friday!

Did anyone else watch The Bachelor this season?  Like I do before every season, I swear I am not going to watch it and then I find myself watching it on Hulu in my free time.  It always sucks me in!  I wasn't to sure about this season with Juan Pablo and I think the main reason was because how ABC was promoting the season premier...they called it Juanuary or something like that!  That was a little too much for me.   I was never really into this season like I normally am, but I just couldn't give up on them...I had to see what all happened.  As I watched each episode, I started disliking him more and more!  I was so proud of all the girls that chose to leave!  I was shocked with the over night dates and then also with the After The Rose special.  In some ways I like that JP didn't propose ( a lot of ways I respect him for that) but he was so rude about it...and awkward!

 Do you ever have those days where you are just tired of the phone?  That is me today!  I have three conference calls today...yes three!  I do not work in the same town as my co-workers so this is how we all operate basically.  I was chosen to be on two planning committees for two different upcoming meetings, so today is all about planning on the phone.  I will be happy to turn off my work phone tonight!

No plans this weekend! I am actually pretty excited about that too!  I am looking forward to just hanging around the house and just doing whatever we feel like doing.  I have some projects around the house I need to work on, so hopefully I will get the motivation to do those!
I am absolutely loving Daylight Savings Time!  Luckily losing or gaining an hour never really affects me...and even better Paige wasn't affected by it either!  You know how nice it is to get home while it is still day light? (I had to work late two nights this week and I didn't have to drive in the dark!)  I also love that we go play outside after supper!    Now if we can just keep the warm weather, we will be set!
St. Patrick's Day is almost here! That day isn't as fun as it was when I was in college!  We went to the Esso and had green beer back in the day.  Now, it really is just another day....another occasion for crafts or pictures of Paige haha.  I want to make this yummy St. Patty's Day theme snack.  I know both Wes and Paige will love it!

  1. I like daylight savings too. So many people have been complaining lately about it, but it never affects me negatively. Just more time to spend outside later in the day! :) -Stopping by from 5 on Friday.
