High Five For Friday!

High Five for Friday Graphic

It’s about that time again!  Woot woot!  I love writing this post!  It gets me all energized and excited for the weekend!  Here are my favorite moments from this past week:

1.  My sweet girl had a soccer game last weekend.  She plays goalie and she blocked some great shots!  I was super proud of her.  How cute are she and her friends in their uniforms?

2.  My hubby and daughter gave me the most adorable presents for Mother’s Day and some beautiful flowers!  They always make me something really special and this year I got a giant mug that they painted and put flowers in.  I have to figure out what to use it for after the flowers die.  Is it wrong that I want to use it to drink coffee?  Sometimes I feel like I need a cup that big.

3.  I read What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty this week and finished it within two days.  I couldn’t put it down!  I have bags under my eyes because I didn’t want to stop reading to go to sleep.  I kept promising myself I would go to bed in five more minutes but then I would extend the time.  Liane Moriarty also wrote The Husband’s Secret (which I liked) but I found this one to be so much more enjoyable.  At first I was afraid it was going to be a copy of one of my favorite books, Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella but it was very different.  The main character hits her head at the gym and loses the last ten years of her memory.  When she wakes up she has children she doesn’t remember, she is getting divorced from her husband (whom she dearly loved) and her hobbies/body/life is totally different.  I highly recommend this novel.  I’m sad I finished it.

4.  Okay, now don’t get me wrong here…I do not IN ANY WAY advocate domestic violence.  I do, however, LOVE when people on the internet create hilarious and creative memes having to do with popular scandals and current events. So, here are my favorite Jay Z/Solange memes:

5.  I work in Manhattan and sometimes I forget how special it is.  Occasionally, I even hate it.  It can be crowded and dirty and loud and there are times when I am leaving on Friday afternoon to head back to the suburbs where I feel like weight is being lifted and I am escaping.  Other times (like yesterday) I walk out of my office and there is a huge marching band going by that stretches as far as the eye can see and it is so festive and unexpected and magical.  Then, I realize that If I worked in a sleepy village somewhere I would have had no chance of experiencing anything like that.  That is the beauty of NYC – anything can happen.  


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  

I am participating in a few fabulous link-ups today.  If you have a moment, swing by and show these ladies some love!  xoxo

    I liked The Husband’s Secret, so now I really want to read What Alice Forgot! Does it have a happy ending? Sometimes I don’t read books if I know they’re going to be sad at the end and I’m not in the mood haha. Found your blog from the High Five for Friday link-up – and your blog is so cute! Love those girls in a soccer uniform. It’s taking me back to my soccer days!
