About Me

My photo
A 30-something living in the foothills of the Virginia mountains; I'm saved by grace, addicted to coffee and my little sister is my best friend! I devote most of my time to exploring, reading, attending as many Nationals games as possible and documenting life here. My Prince Charming got lost somewhere along the way...but I'm trying to remain hopeful that true love exists.

Five on Friday


It's finally Friday - hallelujah! I don't know how your Friday has been, but mine got off to a rather rough start and I spent the first hour or so that I was awake feeling nauseated and dealing with a seriously ridiculous headache. Not really the best way to start any day...especially a Friday...but after some breakfast, coffee and of course medicine, I think I might survive. 

I don't know if I really explained last week but five on Friday is really simple to do and anyone can join in - just post about five things that are on your mind, add the logo and link up with one of the four blogs on the logo. I'm am avid reader of both April (A. Liz Adventues) and Christina's (Carolina Charm) blogs each week!



One: Chick Fil A Chicken Tortilla Soup; I am in love! I don't know if you've had the chicken tortilla soup they serve (seasonally...boo hoo) but I had it for the first time this week and as soon as I polished off my bowl I immediately started hunting Pintrest for a copy cat recipe. I think I may have found one...I'll keep you posted on that. Till then, I suggest you go get a bowl. Or two.

That limited time "sticker" makes me sad.


Two: There are only 48 days until Christmas...so if we're talking about what's on my mind then Christmas is pretty up there! I absolutely love Christmas and while I know my sister does too...I think she's able to be a little more restrained than I am. We posted the two pictures below on our Facebook profiles this week...can you guess which one of us posted which picture? Ha!

  

Three: The Nationals have a new manager; of course this is on my mind! The Nationals hired Dusty Baker as the new manager and since that hire they've also added Mike Maddux as the new pitching coach and Davey Lopes as the new first base coach. The word is still out on who the next batting coach will be...some people had speculated it could be Barry Bonds, but the clubhouse nixed that information pretty quick. So for now...we wait...and watch...and look forward to the 2016 season.

11/5/15 - Dusty Baker Day in DC!

Four: I am a die hard Peanuts fan; which might have something to do with the fact that the first toy I ever owned was a tiny red Snoopy that sat in my bassinet with me at the hospital. It was literally love at first sight, ha-ha! The new Peanuts movie came out today and I'm really looking forward to seeing it soon! It might not be this weekend, but I plan to see it while it's in the theaters. Will you be seeing it?
Wooohooo! 

Five: As always, I'll end with fitness. This week has been a struggle; I'll be honest. And I'll lay all the blame on the time change, ha-ha! I do not like my walk/jog to be the same every day but because the sun is almost completely gone by the time I get home from work now...I am going to have to either embrace the elliptical or learn to love making laps in the golf course parking lot. And it takes 5 and a half laps just to make a mile. *sigh* It all boils down to me making a decision about whether I want to make laps in the parking lot or get on the elliptical - because quitting isn't an option.

Hehehehe....


So - those are the five things that have been on my mind today - along with a million other things. If you have a blog and you'd like to join up, feel free! Happy (finally) Friday!

  1. I think I will see the Peanuts movie but maybe not in the theater - unless I "accidentally" go in the wrong theater when we go to see the new James Bond movie :) I am not quite ready for the Christmas spirit, but probably soon.
