This is a fun Friday 5 this week – all about shoes! I didn’t used to care much about shoes or how they looked, but as I’m getting older, this is changing. I’ve got quite a few pairs of shoes and a cute little organizer to keep them hung in my closet.
- What’s the nicest pair of shoes you’ve owned?
I have a pair of gold and silver heals that are gorgeous and classy!
- What’s likely to be your next shoe purchase?
I need a new pair of black boots.
- Where’s your favorite place to get shoes?
I get them all over, but have come to love DSW in recent months.
- When did you last swap out the insoles or laces on a pair of shoes?
I swap out insoles quick frequently. I would say a couple months ago.
- What were the last shoes you got rid of like?
I got rid of some gold flats that had seen better days. Good thing I found a new pair of cute gold flats to replace them! 😉
I hope everyone has had a great week and that you enjoy the upcoming weekend.
Since life has settled into a more natural routine, I’m anxious to get back to blogging more on this page. So, I’m going to jump back into the Friday 5 to get started!
This week is about shaking.
When did you last make what could be described as a wriggling motion?
I would say that had to be at lunch today. Or when I got home from all my meetings. Today was a FANTASTIC day!!
What never fails to give you the willies?
The song my fiance sings about bugs and death. It freaks me out!
What’s something you’ve seen on TV or in a movie that made you squirm?
The Walking Dead – the zombies and blood and guts makes me squirm big time!
What’s something in your life that could be described as serpentine?
Hmmm, not much, honestly. I don’t allow things like that to wiggle into my life.
Where can you get a really great shake?
Steak N’Shake. The.Best.Ever!
I hope this post finds you all doing well. Have a great weekend and I’ll post again soon!
I hope your week has been wonderful and the weekend has been relaxing. I am going to do a catch up post with the Friday 5 and Thankful Posts. I decided to take a couple days off to unwind and destress with the holiday and am just now getting back to everything. 🙂 Hope Thanksgiving was wonderful for you all!
Friday 5: You, Too
- What are you too short to do?
Reach the top shelf in the cupboards in the kitchen. Either I’m getting shorter or they are getting taller and it drives me bonkers!
- What are you too smart to do?
I’m smart enough to know my limitations – finally.
- What are you too fearful to do?
Jump. I’ve been standing on a few different “cliffs” and I’m terrified to jump. But, I’ve taken steps a little closer to edges on a couple of them this week.
- What are you too lazy to do?
Everything scheduled on my calendar, lol. There are always things that get moved over to the next day>
- What are you too young to do?
Sit in a rocking chair and yell at people standing on my lawn. Give me a couple years, I might get there sooner than I think! LOL
Day 24: I am thankful for best friends. For those people who have your back no matter what decisions you make and will always be there for you.
Day 25: I am thankful for family. For my parents and siblings, for my friends who have become my family, and for families that take you under their wing.
Day 26: I am thankful for excitement.
Day 27: I am thankful for soulful connections.
I hope your Sunday is all you want and need it to be! Have a great week!
Yesterday was a bit of a whirlwind kind of day and I didn’t get to my post before I passed out. (Literally fell asleep with the computer in my lap and my phone in my hand. It was a busy work-filled day!) So… here is yesterday and today’s:
I am thankful for compassion. For the compassion of others and the compassion that I have to give. To me, compassion makes the world go round. It makes days brighter and relationships more meaningful. Let’s face it – none of us are perfect and we all make mistakes. And compassion is that element that makes love so much stronger. To know that you are not perfect but that there is someone beside you that understands and is there to be a friend or partner when you need them is absolutely amazing! And for those people in my life that show me compassion, I am thankful for you!
I am thankful for laughter. I love people who have those outrageous laughs that echo off of walls, or those that snort uncontrollably when they laugh (guilty!), those who have adorable mouse squeaks, those that have the Elmo laugh (also me – my nickname is Tickle-Me-MoMo) the silent, body-shaking laughs that don’t stop for several minutes – you are the beautiful souls that make life so much sweeter! I love to share those moments with you when you can’t control your joy and it squeaks, snorts, or bursts from you. Thank you for sharing your adorableness with the world – even if you are embarrassed when it happens. 😉
I am thankful for my tribe. They are this amazing core group of individuals who have my back no matter what happens. The love and support I receive from this group of people is absolutely amazing! No matter where life takes me, my tribe has my back. And if that’s not something to be grateful for – I don’t know what is! ❤
The last few days have flown by in a blur for me and I am behind in everything! Here is my Friday 5 and Thankful Posts catch up.
Friday 5: Fair Use
- What was the last thing you put in the freezer not to freeze, but just to chill?
- What’s a non-food item you’re storing in a zippered, plastic bag?
Paper clips, mechanical pencil lead, and other various small office supplies
- What’s the most unusual item you’ve used as a bookmark?
I checked out a book from the library last year that had a Valentine’s Day card from a reader’s husband. It was very strange, but I used it as a bookmark, and returned it in the book. I gave it to one of the librarians in hopes that the card would be returned to the rightful owner.
- What’s something unusual for which you’ve used a kitchen utensil?
I am constantly using spatulas and wooden spoons to fish cat toys and magnets (aka what the cat thinks are his toys…) out from under the fridge and oven.
- How many different kinds of balls do you have in your house?
Oh several – my cat loves to play with all sorts of balls. We give him bouncy balls out of vending machines, balls with bells inside, catnip balls, etc.
Day 18 – I am thankful for healing. All of sorts – emotional, physical, spiritual. It’s amazing to look back on your life and events and see how much you’ve grown from them and learned.
Day 19 – I am thankful for pressure. One of my mentors back in Colorado always uses the phrase, “Pressure is a privilege.” There are moments when that phrase makes me want to throw something (usually when the pressure is too great), but it truly is. It shows that you have dedication, motivation, desire to achieve, and a drive in your belly. When it is applied by someone else, you have someone who takes all of those things and wants them for you.. Granted, there is unhealthy pressure – but we’re going to focus on the positive here!
Day 20 – I am thankful for soul mates. The ones I have known most of my life, the ones I have just met, the ones I am to meet, my romantic soul mates… all of them hold such a dear place in my heart!
I hate to cut this short, but I am spending my Sunday evening playing catch up on my life. I hope the weekend has been a great one and that your week is kind to you!
There are always so many things to be thankful for in any given day that sometimes it is hard to pinpoint just one to highlight. Today is one of those days.
Today I am thankful for inspiration. It always hits me at the weirdest times, but I will take it! Even if it is at 1am. I woke from a dream and had a thousand different ideas running through my head, from books to workshops to company names and logos, it all was flowing out of me. I adore those moments when I am filled with ideas and they fuel the entrepreneur fire in my belly. They are the best!
Needless to say, after the 2 hours of writing down information that came to me, I’m a bit tired today! 🙂
Make it a great day, guys! Remember, that today will be exactly what you want it to be. Set your intention and make it happen!
