I Just Want To Search Pinterest/ Five on Friday

So, you know you're bored when you're blogging on a Friday night.  Actually, that's a lie.  Well the bored part is true, but instead of engulfing myself in TV for the rest of the night, I wanted to come here instead.  I don't know if this was such a good idea, though, because I haven't taken my hand out of the chip bag long enough to write anything in the last five minutes other than that first sentence.  Luckily they're baked chips.  Hey, I said baked. 

Today didn't go quite as smooth as Fridays normally do, and I've been blaming it on the fact that I slept in this morning, which resulted in me being late for work.  I've had some very, very close calls over the last couple of years since I've been working at this job, but this was the first day that I was actually late.  Who else had to push washing their hair off another day, today?  And then I wonder why I've trained my hair to go days and days and days without washing it.  There's your secret folks!

But, even though I was in such a rush this morning that I had to stroll into work looking like a homeless person, it didn't stop me from waiting in a lineup for fifteen minutes to get my coffee.  From my experience, coffee always trumps appearance.  Actually, I'm pretty sure that with me, coffee trumps everything.

Alright, enough with the coffee talk because we all know that this blog could be about nothing but coffee.  Let's get back to why I came here in the first place; to talk about my five things from this week.

ONE// Charley's On Vacation
Charley has been on vacation this week; aka spending the week with my parents.  Although I miss her terribly, I will admit that I have been enjoying eating my meals in peace, not having to go home for lunch, having more room in the bed, and not catching her destroy every sock that I own.  And plus, this little guy right here doesn't seem to mind too much, either.

TWO// Grey's Anatomy
I've been watching the 9th season of Grey's and, after hearing a couple of 'not so great' things about this season, I wasn't expecting a whole lot, but so far you guys I'm loving it.  You could bet that if Todd was actually home right now, I would be engulfed in that TV after all and there would be no post here tonight.

THREE// Christmas Shopping
Yes, you read that right.  I have actually started my Christmas shopping. If I hadn't slept in this morning (like I normally do), I'd be seriously asking myself right now 'who is this person?".  Every year I always say that I'm going to get a head start, and I can't believe that for once I actually listened.  I want to be able to enjoy the few weeks leading up to Christmas this year, instead of stressing and panicking over things I have left to do.  But, if anyone would like to do the rest of my shopping for me, well then by all means, knock yourselves out.

FOUR// Christmas Spirit
Since I'm now in the Christmas spirit, I've been spending way too long and wasting too much time looking at Christmas DIY projects on pinterest.  I say wasting time because, although my pinterest board may be chalked full with ideas right now, I'm sure we all know that none of those ideas will actually come to life.  But again, if anyone would like to do these projects for me, by all means, knock yourselves out.  One condition, though- I get all the credit.

In case you're wondering,  I really like this.
No hints, or anything. 

FIVE// Getting My Girl Back Tomorrow
Did I mention that I miss Charley terribly?  I'm going out home tomorrow to get her because, really, who needs peace while eating, or extra room in the bed, or time to actually eat during your lunch break, or socks to wear to work?

And while I'm out home I will be getting my winter tires put on my car, instead of waiting until the middle of winter (like I normally do) and panic when I get stuck going up a hill or until I slide all over the place going down a hill.  Okay, now I can ask, who is this person?  I guess when you have no animal entertainment for a full week, you can actually be productive.  Who knew!

Hope you all had a great week and now, an even better weekend.

And, if anyone is looking for my address to mail the DIY project up above, please message me and I'll send that right along. K, thanks!

Oh, although this wasn't listed in my top five, an honourable mention goes out to my co-worker who informed me on Tuesday that I had chocolate smeared all over my bum.  As embarrassing as that was for her, it could have been much more embarrassing for me when I hit up the mall later that evening.  So please, don't be afraid to do the same for others.  And can someone please explain to me how one little chocolate chip always escapes from the cookie and ends up underneath your bum?
