My Friday Five – The Late Show

My Friday Five – The Late Show

Some of the best moments seem to come from the unexpected random things, don’t they? 1 | Witnessing The End of An Era – The highlight of my week was getting to attend a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman! I was in New York City for work this week, and on a

Happy almost weekend everyone! This week passed by in a flash. I hope the weekend takes it’s own sweet time! This week’s Friday Five is brought to you by my inner Super Hero. If only I could clone myself (or have a super cool alter ego), I could fit everything in. Until then, I’ll just

My Friday Five – Rest Please!

Not gonna lie, I’m pretty happy to see this week come to a close. I have a high threshold before meeting my “max limit” and this week I was there by Wednesday. I feel like I need some yoga in my life, but it stresses me out trying to figure out how to fit it

My Friday Five – Spring Randomness

I didn’t manage to get any new project posts up this week. I have a few to write about, just not enough hours some weeks to fit it all in! For some reason I’ve had a bit of insomnia lately, so falling asleep by 8:30 some nights has not been terribly productive. Hopefully I’m back on

Okay, so it’s not technically spring for another week, but we were blessed with amazing weather this week. 1. Unseasonal Sunshine! Last week we were still below freezing, this week we were in the 60’s and 70’s. Glorious sunshine and warm weather does amazing things for everyone’s mood in the midwest after the winter! I

Happy Friday! 1. Sweet Notes – It was my birthday this week. Todd and Carter both got me very sweet cards. I love that Carter signed both his first and last name, like I might not know which Carter calls me Mom. #lovethiskid 2. Celebrations – continuing on with the celebration theme, we met a

1. Daylight Savings Time Adjustment – this week’s daylight saving’s time change has really thrown me off. Hopefully I’m at the tail end of waking up way too early and tossing and turning. I forgot how dark it gets early now though. Winter is coming. It did produce a huge moon over the Iowa State

Okay, only the 2nd week in and I already missed posting on Friday. Oops! Just one of those weeks folks! 1. Glorious Fall! Last weekend was absolutely beautiful, sunny and in the low 70’s. It was probably one of the last warm weekends before colder fall temps and winter weather hits. In fact, last year

I’m replacing my monthly wrap up with my Friday Five as a way to keep up on day to day happenings and favorite finds from the week. 1. Stomping Grounds – We spent last Saturday at Simpson College, where Todd and I both went to college and where we met. We usually like to take
