My Friday Five

Two weeks of blogging down, yeah!  I feel like I have this secret thing to look forward to doing every night, putting things together for my blog.  New adventures are always exciting, at least I think so!  Onto my Friday Five. . .

1.  I don't think words can express how much I LOVE getting mail.  Real mail, not junk mail - that doesn't count.  What does count, packages that I know are coming because I've ordered the things in them myself :) The UPS man and I are on a first name basis.  I also love mail that I haven't sent myself, I just don't get it as often.


2.  This winter has been colder then I remember in years, and I think it has been snowing on average every other day or so.  I picked up this new workout top last weekend at TJ Maxx because the color was channeling spring and I couldn't resist!


3.  Speaking of working out, I super miss being able to run outdoors.  I'm way too much of a chicken to try to run outside through a Chicago winter.  So to mix it up I tried my first treadmill interval workout this week, thanks to Pinterest.  It was a good way to mix things up, and a good work out!

4.  And why I work out. . .


I am obsessed.  Lately I have only been able to find them at HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, or Marshalls.  I think the cashiers think I'm crazy because when I find them I buy several bags.  So good!

5.  Last but not least, I am so grateful for my positive outlook on life.  Way to often I encounter people who just seem kind of miserable, or are approaching the world like it is out to get them/cheat them/make them angry.  I am grateful that I can look at my experiences with a glass half full perspective.  Don't get me wrong, I can have my fair share of getting worked up over something or complaining over something, I am not perfect.  I am just grateful of the view that I have and feel sad for those who's glasses are half empty (can you tell I've had my fair share of dealing with this this week.)

I hope you have a good weekend.  Here is to hoping it is productive and full of progress on my office!
