High Five Friday

High Five Friday

Happy High Five Friday!

It’s time to celebrate my second favorite ‘F’ word.  Hahaha!  Here’s what I’ve been reading, watching and listening to this week.


On Female Friendships as an Adult  – I don’t know about you, but for me, making new friends as an adult has been hard.  Especially since I live far away from where I grew up and don’t have any super close friendships from high school or college anymore. Like Jen, who wrote the post, I don’t have it in me to initiate friendships.  It’s something that I’ve had to work on over the years.  And it’s paid off because I have a great circle of friends that continuously keeps growing.

Buffalo Marathon Race Recap – I’ve known Laura for a few years through blogging and eventually meeting a few years ago in Chicago. She’s sweet, sassy and funny.  I was overjoyed to see on social that she WON the Buffalo Marathon a couple of weeks ago.  She’s a badass mother runner.  Just take a peek at the first photo in the article as she leads the big boys.


Epic Wipes (affiliate link) After last weekend’s Cranmore Mountain Race, I was quite a mess.  From two falls, I was covered in sweat, dust, mud, and blood.  I even had black dirt up my nose.  I looked like I had a gigantic black boogie!

Thankfully, I brought an Epic Wipe with me.  This thing is awesome and HUGE.  It’s like bath towel big.  Perfect for wiping away all the leftovers from a hard race. I’ll be stocking up on these for all of our summer and fall sweaty adventures.


The Handmaid’s Tale – We recently started watching the first season of this and quickly went through the first season and are almost caught up with the second.  Whoa.  It’s crazy.  At first I didn’t really understand what it was.  I thought it was set in the 1600s with how the Handmaid’s are dressed.  Nope.  It’s modern times.  And it makes me think that something like that could actually happen one day because there’s some crazy people out there. I don’t have any friends who are watching so I’m desperate to discuss it with someone other than Ron.  Haha!


Artic Zero recently sent me a lovely package of their new light ice cream flavors.  I’m all about the full calorie/fat deal ice cream so my expectations were pretty low that these were actually going to taste good. Spoiler alert: they are GOOD! My only complaint is that the Cookie and Brownie Dough flavor doesn’t nearly have enough of it.  Is there ever enough of that stuff.  YUM.  Although the vanilla ice cream is really good.

  1. I really want to start watching Handmaid’s Tale (and read the book) but I can’t get Ryan into it. I have a huge pack of Epic wipes from the retreat that I’m eager to use for summer hiking and backpacking trips. I hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Thankfully, Ron and I both had no idea what the show was about before we started watching it. It’s definitely an interesting story especially the first season. I think I need to read the book now just to compare.
