We Made It Outside/ Five On Friday

11 April 2014

It's that day of the week again, friends. To be honest, I thought yesterday was Friday, so you can imagine how unamused I was every time I was reminded that it wasn't. But have no fear, it's here today and just like always, I'm really looking forward to the weekend. Over the past few weekends I've had to work a few hours here and there (totally not complaining since vacation time is right around the corner), but it looks like I'm in the clear for this one (touch wood).

It's been a while since I've linked up for Five On Friday, so let's just jump right in today (and plus, I never really know how to start these posts off).

ONE// Did you know that yesterday was National Siblings Day? No? Me neither, well, not until very late last night. I figured it's never too late, though, to tell someone how much they mean to you, so Lesley, thanks for being the best big sister anyone could ever ask for and the person who is always there to listen to my ramblings. You know how excited I am to be seeing you real real soon (on the beach, in the sunshine, with multiple drinks, of course).



TWO//  Look who made it outside for a run this week. Yup, me and my mitts and my ear warmer thingy all made it out. Granted, my snow suit should have came out too, but that's beside the point. The point is that I was able to run outside. Outside!!!  You have no idea how nice it was to feel the bitter cold air on my face and the slush pavement under my feet. It made me so happy to know that this was the first run of many many more to come over the spring and summer (again, really touch wood for this one).


THREE//  I've become a little obsessed with blue pastel colours for spring and it's only grown since buying Essie's 'borrowed and blue' nail polish. It's both subtle and colourful all rolled into one (I don't know if something can be both subtle and colourful but, if it can, this nail polish is it).


FOUR//  While I was in bed early one night due to not feeling very well, Todd surprised me with flowers. Apparently he said he got an email from someone with a link to Erins post with these lines highlighted: "if you don't have a vagina and you are reading this, go buy your girlfriend/wife a 'just because' flower. I mean it. Your non-vagina will thank me for it later".  Hmmm...not sure who sent him that email...strange!  ;)  Erin, I'm not sure about Todds non-vagina, but this vagina thanks you very much.

FIVE//  If you want your house to smell absolutely heavenly, all while you're pretending that you're on a tropical island (and that you're not needing a snow suit to run outside), pick yourself up the Caribbean Escape and Tiki Beach candles from Bath & Body Works. Trust me on this one. 



That's it for this week.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

  4. Love that colour! I've had on two different pastel Essie shades in the last couple of weeks and everyone keeps telling me how 'easter-y' my nails look. Not what I was intending but I've gotten lots of compliments on them so I'll take it!

    I can't believe how much snow you still have there! We have barely any snow left and the streets are finally clear enough to run on without fear of slipping and breaking a leg, but I still haven't found the energy to actually go for a run. *sigh*
