High Five Friday

The most wonderful day of the week…Friday!

I say this every week but WHAT A WEEK! I’m beyond happy to see Friday. With the whole Achilles thing, a new thing that hurts, no running and other not so fun stuff going on in my life, I’m ready to move on. I just want something light and good.

It’s been a few weeks since I shared my fav Instagram pics and links from the week for high five Friday. Are you following me on Instagram?

  1. Ok, the chat up line is hilarious–must be put into action! ; ) I loved “Where’d You go Bernadette.” Fun read. And of all the places I’ve traveled, Australia has been my favorite–go!

    I am so envious of your flexibility, even if your arms aren’t there YET.

    1. I’ve been doing eccentric calf drops off the steps, lots of foam rolling, massage and Rock Tape. It’s making progress except now I’ve got something going on with my back. Ugh!

  2. I’m re-watching all the seasons of Friends right now with my hubby (have been for most of the summer) and it is SO good. I’m also at the end where Paul Rudd is in almost every episode and he is hilarious. Loved getting to know you!

  3. I just pinned your 3-ingredient cookie dough bites, I need to make those!

    I’m taking these questions for my site too. I’ve answered variations of them on the site, but it’s always fun to do posts like these and read them on other’s sites.

  4. I want to go to Hawaii in December (and January and July and September…..)!
    I hope that your Achilles and new issue feel much better soon!
    Reading this and seeing the bedtime posts made me a little nostalgic. There are many nights now that we go to bed before the boys or we all go to bed at the same time – I’m old and tired!!!

  5. I love that photo of the leaves and your shoes, so colourful. You know what that would be a photo I would get printed.

    And i’m so glad you have Australia on the top of your too visit list.

    Where you’d go Bernadette is on my TBR pile.. just too many books to read! not enough time!
