A Big Pile Of Randomness/ Five On Friday

I'm so happy it's Friday! Although I don't have anything exciting planned for this weekend, I'm so looking forward to having a relaxing and productive one. Aka cleaning and lounging around in my pj's. That sounds absolutely perfect right about now. 
It's been a while since I've linked up with the lovely Five On Friday ladies, so today I'm sharing a big pile of randomness from this week.
ONE//  Sick of winter. Who's with me on that one?  Or better yet, who's sick of hearing people talk about how sick of winter they are? I see your hand raised. We had (another) snow storm here yesterday and it's days like that that make me contemplate moving to a place where I can sit in my shorts and laugh at people like me while I read their blogs. My work never has snow days, like ever, but I always take full advantage on "snow days" and dig through my closest to find the biggest, fluffiest, comfiest thing I own.  

TWO//  The bun. I've been avoiding the hair dryer and flat iron as much as possible over the last few weeks and instead I've been sporting the bun or the top knot or whatever else this big ball of hair that's been sitting on the top of my head is called. I've been loving not only the extra time in the morning (hello more sleep!) but also how much softer my hair feels when I do straighten it. Win, win!

THREE// Subway salads. I'm not the type of girl who orders a salad. Period. I mean, I make salads for my lunch at work almost every single day, but to actually order and pay someone to make me a salad? It never happens. I'm not sure if it's because my eating has been super super clean lately due to a little thing called Mexico, or if it's because these Subway salads are really that good. Either way, my belly has been happy! 

FOUR// Sick puppy. I was faced with a sick little girl and a house full of sickness on my lunch break yesterday. Oh those sad eyes, just like a dagger through my heart. Fur mommas, don't you hate it when your innocent babies are not feeling well? Needless to say she got extra love yesterday evening, both from me and the lady at the Tim Horton's drive-thru who gave her 2 timbits. She certainly didn't look too sick as she was inhaling those treats.

The best car buddy I could ever ask for.

FIVE//  My sister. The one who got me into this whole blogging thing, and the one who has slowly been getting her butt back in gear and posting again. Hallelujah!  First when I started blogging, I joked about how I was going to get her to do a guest post for me one day, but now I'm thinking she really really should. I think while I'm away in Mexico (another hallelujah) would be the perfect time. So dear sister, continue to keep that butt in gear for me, mmmmkk?  I would love it if you all went and said hi to her. Oh, and a little birdy told me that she's getting a new blog design AND a new blog name!  But you didn't hear that from me!  Remember, it was the bird.

Happy weekend!

Don't forget to enjoy every second of it!

  8. Hi Renee! I found you on the link up today.
    First off, I just have to tell you how much I love your polka dotted phone case. It's so cute! Top knot buns are where it's at. They are so easy and very chic.

    And your Subway salad looks super tasty - I think I know what I'm doing for lunch today!

    Hope your pup feels better soon. It's heartbreaking when your buddies are sick.
