My Friday Five

How was everybody's week?  This week was interesting for me, that is the best word I can choose to describe it right now.  I'm still trying to digest bits and pieces of it, there was definitely a lot of material in this week, with more to come!

Here are my tops moments of this week, so far at least!

1.  If you remember last Friday I mentioned I was desperately looking forward to my weekend simply so I could sleep in.  I managed 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep for 2 nights in a row, it was amazing and I can not remember the last time I did that.  Unfortunately I will probably be losing more sleep this weekend, but that's how the table turns!

2.  Last Sunday I walked into this aisle at Target and my heart melted.  It was full of neutral and white and it was just clean and crisp and fresh.  I could have taken everything home with me!

3.  I love Trader Joe's!  Unfortunately we do not have one conveniently near us, but there are several in the Chicagoland area so when I find myself close to one I make an effort to go and stock up.  I got to stock up Monday evening.  I feel like they have the best stuff for the best prices, and you can always comes home with an affordable bunch of fresh flowers!

4.  I was running around getting ready for work the other morning and I walk into my dining room to see this.

First, don't judge.  Yes this is the current state of my dining room table, it is horrible, I know.  Second, it just made me laugh.  Of all places, in the middle of my pile of crap is where he chooses to hang out, ok cat.

5. New vacuum cleaner!  We have been needing one for awhile.  It is amazing how much of a difference clean fresh carpets make, and it is disgusting to see everything that was sitting there leftover from the old vacuum not working to the max!

Hope you have a great weekend!  I will be traveling for work, so I have another busy weekend ahead of me.  But I am still desperately hoping to wrap up my work on my office on Monday and put my "done for now" stamp on it!  Happy Friday!


  1. Stopping by from the link-up. Love all the white + neutrals from Target. I was just raving about T. Joe's earlier this week, it's one of my favorites, too. We don't have one super close either, so every time I go I do a major haul. Have a fabulous weekend. : )

  2. I'm just stopping by from the link up too. Love that you are keeping it real and showed your dining room table. Mine is the same right now. :)

  3. Isn't it hilarious that we find vacuum cleaners to be a great purchase now!! I totally agree - clean carpets are the best! I totally agree that Trader Joes is fantastic - they really do have a great selection for a great price! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. My 2nd bedroom looks like your dining room table except it's laundry that I don't want to fold laying on the bed & I usually find my little boy (dog) laying right in the middle of the clothes.

  5. Thanks for stopping by! Unfortunately mine looks like this more often than not!

  6. I remember when I got really excited that I got a steam mop for Christmas one year, my younger siblings just didn't get the excitement! Have a great weekend!
