Five Things on Friday

Happy Friday, folks! Today, I bring to you my very own Five Things on Friday post. One has to do with girls and water, one is a total a downer, one is exciting, one is about a favorite blog of mine, one is the beginning of a mommy wish list and the best one is a WINNER!  So keep reading to get the scoop!!!

#1
So, today I will be heading to Lake Buchanan for a girl's weekend getaway...no boys...no kids.  Don't get me wrong, I love my boys (Ross, Dad, brother, father-in-law, uncles, brother-in-laws, guy friends, etc...) and I love my kids, but this Momma could use a little time away with the ladies.  Can I get a  HELL YEAH?!  Thank you!  We will be having big girl drinks, floating in the lake, gossiping and working on our tans.  Simply Heaven....

#2
This one is the DOWNER!  I just found out that the ONLY show that I REALLY watched on the boob tube has been cancelled!! I have loved Sarah Michelle Gellar since the Buffy days, so of course I started watching her new show.  And to my (and Ross's) surprise, we were HOOKED from the get-go.  This show was so good.  It had passion, twists, turns, OMG moments and did I mention I LOVE S.M.G.?  She is my one, true, long lived girl crush and now it's over.  They left us with a cliff hanging finale and now I will never know what happens.  I am DEVASTATED and PISSED!! It's almost as bad as Christian Grey leaving my life.

#3
Moving on to to brighter things.  The above is a list Logan (my oldest) started making yesterday.  She didn't get past #3, but it's a start and work in progress, right?  I decided it's time to start running a tighter ship around this house because, quite frankly,  I am tired of being Mommy-Maid.  Any suggestions of what she can add?  I sure could name a few!

#4

Miss Sharon with The Tiny Heart interviewed me today on her blog. Hop over and learn some FASCINATING facts about moi. I always get so nervous in interviews and seem to say the most RANDOM things. So, don't judge, just love and go read it now!


#5
I saved the BEST for last. So, the winner of my cuff bracelet and earring giveaway is Marie from NYorker @ Heart.  I am overly PUMPED that Miss Marie is the lucky lady!!  Let me tell you that this girl is one of my BIGGEST supporters. I couldn't be happier that all the love she has shown has paid off!!  Marie, email me your home address and I will mail these beauties to you ASAP.


Cheers to my first top five post!  This was kind of fun. I may do it again real soon!

I am also disappointed that Ringer was cancelled. The only shows I got into this season were Ringer and Alcatraz. Both cancelled. I am TV poison. I am not a mom, but I have the boyfriend and a male roommate living with me. I use a dry erase calendar for chores. The boys seem to be able handling simple chores like sweeping and bed making. I just added cleaning the toilet, so let's see how that goes.

I obvs already commented on Insta but I'm still so confused as to how it got canceled. I know lots of people that were hooked yet they cancel it and keep Secret Circle and 90210. Both of those shows suck! Come onnnn CW! Girl's weekend sounds fun :) Have a great time! I love the list.. I used to have a clipboard next to my room that had my list of chores. There was no messing around with my Mom!

Have a wonderful time with your girls on the lake, Shanna! Thanks again for doing the Q&A with me :)

Oooo girl's weekend! That sounds like a fantastic time! The list that Logan made is adorable. My personal favorite is, "Wosh the Deshis".

Also, thank you so much for the sweet comment yesterday! You are absolutely NOT a blogger grandma! I agree with you on everything else though and wish we lived closer too! You are the sweetest, and thank you so much for being you - wonderful and awesome you :) Love you, girl!

xoxo, me

Hi! I just found your blog through Sharon's blog and am now following :) I'm sad about Ringer being cancelled too. It seems like any show I like gets cancelled.

Have a good time at the lake! I was so mad they cancelled Ringer too, I have no idea what the CW is thinking. They cancelled the majority of the good shows from this past season to make room for that sex and the city repeat show and that lame one about the hotel in florida. Crossing my fingers it will get picked up by another network.

Landi Lausen said...

Okay WTH... I LOVED Ringer... and am pretty furious they cancelled it!! Man, that totally ruined my day! :( I hope you have fun at the lake this weekend... you deserve it! xo

I liked that show too! I am so bummed it won't be on anymore - I feel like that always happens to me! :( Oh well, happy friday!!

Ashley said...

Girls Weekend!!!!!! have fun!!! I have never even heard of that show...but I HATE when one of my shows gets cancelled.

Amy Shaughnessy said...

I have gotten into a lot of shows only to have them cancelled. I think a lot of people are watching reality tv more now so that brings down the ratings for real shows. SO annoying.
