Friday! {5.15.15}

Happy Friday! First of all, I looked at the date today and realized that it looks pretty cool today. I know, I’m a total nerd. Anyway, let’s jump in with this Friday’s five, shall we?


My mom and sister are coming up on Saturday to watch Abbie so Chris and I can go see Pitch Perfect 2 – which was 100% his idea. He thought the first one was hilarious so he’s willing to listen to the acapella. Yay for date night!


Did you see my quick post yesterday giving you the chance to ask me anything? So far I only have three questions, and I know there has to be more you guys are curious about!

Abbie wants to know!


By a weird combination of stuff going on this week, I never made it to the gym, yet I seem to be holding steady weight wise. We’ll see if that’s the case when I get o my Weight Watchers meeting, but fingers crossed! I got out of the 190s once and would love to get out of them for good.


I know it’s not for another week, but I am so very excited for Memorial Day weekend. The only thing on our calendar this far is my goddaughter’s birthday party (yay!) and I’m so ready to have three days off in a row. The last holiday I had off was New Year’s Day, which really feels like forever ago. The January to May stretch at work is always SO long!


I got my first Dia and Co box yesterday. I’m writing up a separate post about it, but I did want to share my handwritten note that was included in my box! It’s so rare to get a personal touch like this nowadays, and I totally loved that personalization.

What are you up to this weekend?

  1. Hooray for Pitch Perfect 2! I am looking forward to seeing that soon, I hope- but it is definitely not one Jared wants to see so I need to schedule a girls night hehe. Love that personal note- it IS rare, so it’s always nice to get something like that! Sugar Love Boutique always puts a note in and I love it!

    1. I was so surprised when Chris offered but I’ll take it! It was really good, and he even liked it too! And I didn’t know that about Sugar Love – I’ll have to look!

  2. I can’t wait to see what you new box contains, and if you like it more than Stitch Fix. Are you still subscribing to Stitch Fix? Have fun on your date night!

  3. Yay for a date night! Looking forward to seeing what you got in the box! I always love reading those posts!

  4. Dia and Co? I’ve never heard of this but I can’t wait to read more about your experience with them!

    I’m kind of hoping I don’t go into labor over memorial day weekend- because, holiday. But, we’ll see what happens 🙂 You’re right, the Jan- May stretch is SO long!

    1. Well, we know you didn’t go into labor over Memorial Day weekend 🙂 so funny to respond to this after she’s here!
