Five Question Friday

Happy Friday! I had to work tonight, so I guess my weekend is starting now...even though I have to work Sunday night...during the season premier of Mad Mad :( Thank goodness for DVR [sidenote to Bright House cable: if your stupid DVR messes up during Mad Men Sunday like it always does when I record The Bachelorette, I will throw a fit...just sayin'] Anyway, I thought I'd link up to Mama M.'s Five Question Friday :)

1. What were your school colors?
In high school we were red and colors were Crimson and White...Roll Tide! Probably about 90% of my t-shirts are crimson Alabama shirts...

2. What's the best compliment you ever received?
That I have a "beautiful soul" :)

3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?
I guess it's kind of expensive...I prefer Charmin Diamond Weave. Right now I'm using Cottonelle because it was on sale but I'm going right back to my Charmin when it runs out!

4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else?
Nope, never had a surprise party thrown for me :( We had one for my dad though when he turned 50. He really was surprised!

5. What is one material possession that you "can't live without"?
It was a tough was going to be either my laptop or my phone, but I'm gonna have to go with my phone. I mean, I really need my laptop for school and everything, but if it died I guess I could get by without it and use Lee's desktop. My phone, on the other hand...I don't know what I'd do without it. I don't actually KNOW anybody's phone number anymore, so I couldn't call anybody from my house phone if I didn't have it. Plus, if I didn't have my computer I could get on the internet with my phone, and the other day I got a "groceries" app! I haven't used it yet, but I'm pretty excited about it :)

I hope everybody has a good weekend!

Weekend Fun

This weekend my childhood bff came to visit! She lives in Eufaula right now so we don't get to see each other as much as we'd like, but we always pick right back up without missing a beat :) She brought her boyfriend with her, and his daughter because we had not met them yet.

We had so much fun! They got into town Saturday afternoon and we went over to Sunny's house for a shrimp boil. This was the weekend I tried to get better about taking pictures!

I was trying to give him a kiss and he laughed! Not the reaction I was going for! :)

Sunday we got up and played some guitar hero, then we went to Full Moon (home of the biggest bbq potato I've ever had!) for some lunch then did a little bit of shopping then to Yogurt Mountain! They weren't allowed to leave Birmingham until we went to Yogurt Mountain! Shannon has been before, but her boyfriend and daughter had not, so they had to experience, I'll take any excuse to go there :)

I clearly blew my diet this weekend, but it's okay. We had such a good time :)

it's the little things in life

Ever noticed how the little things in life sometimes (probably even most of the time) make you happier than the big things? You know, when you're just having a regular day, not particularly bad or good, and something that's not really a big deal at all can just make your day? I love those little things.

Here are a couple of little things that have made a couple of my days this week pretty awesome:

1. Tuesday night I had to work until about 9:30, and then I was planning on studying the rest of the night for a math test that I had on Wednesday. When I got home from work, Lee told me that he had gone to the store to get some salad and he got me a surprise while he was there since he knew I'd be up later than normal. He told me that he was going to get me ice cream (because we all know how much I LOVE ice cream), but he knew I was trying to lose weight and didn't want to mess me up too bad. So instead he got me some Luigi's Italian Ice. It wasn't any big thing that he did for me, it was just the thought behind it that made me so happy :)

2. I think I've mentioned on here how much I hate cleaning the bathroom. I don't mind cleaning the sinks and even the toilets, but I detest cleaning the shower. It just seems like no matter how hard I try, I can't ever get it really clean. Then I'll go to take a shower the next day and it looks like I didn't even try. I saw a commercial the other day for the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Bath Scrubber and figured I'd try it. I've tried everything else, so why not? I used it today, and I am absolutely IN LOVE with it! It wasn't perfect, but hey, my shower never is, so I'll take it! It really did make my day to find something that works on my shower!

I might start doing this kind of post more regularly. That way, if I'm ever feeling sorry for myself I can just look back at them and be reminded of the little things that make me so happy :)

I hope everybody has a great weekend!
