5 Things on Friday!


Yay for Friday!

1--I forgot to set my coffeemaker last night, so I went downstairs to make it this morning. I made it alright...without actually putting the coffee in. I did not even notice this until I poured myself a cup of piping hot water. Evidently I was pretty tired...so I made it again. This time with the coffee.

2--Tonight my friend Sarah and I are going to the Journey concert in Louisville! I'm so excited!!!! Pat Benatar is opening for them. We'll probably be the youngest people there, but who cares :) Also? I have no idea what to wear. I don't know how to dress for these things anymore...for most non-work events, I stress about what to wear. I've talked about this here before.

3--Tomorrow night I have a birthday party to go to...of the coolest little gal I know! You may remember Laurel from previous posts. She asked for "dangly earrings" so I got her several pairs from Claire's, for sensitive ears. (I hate that store! It's like sensory overload) For her birthday party she also requested root beer floats. This child cracks me up!


4--Last weekend I took on a little DIY-spray-painting project. I recently bought these two red vases at Marshalls. Between the two of them I think I spent about $13. I'm really proud of myself because I bought them KNOWING I would have to do a little work for them to be what I wanted...and I usually have difficulty thinking outside the box on things like that.

I like the red, but I really wanted them to be white. So with a can of spray paint I went to town...
They still need another coat of paint so they're sitting on cardboard in my kitchen floor, but hopefully I'll get to that this weekend. Then of course I need some flowers for them...it never ends, ha!

5--Here we are at number 5...and because I have nothing earth shattering to tell you, I thought I'd share some of my favorite recent ecards...
 

Happy Friday party people! Have a great weekend!

  5. Question to ponder - is it really Journey without Steve Perry? Or just a cover band? *wink* Hope you had a great time, I've seen Pat Benatar several times and have never been disappointed. Have also seen Journey (complete with Steve Perry) back in the dark ages. LOL.
