My Friday Five

I find that just sitting down to right this post each week gives me a good moment to reflect upon the happenings during the week at hand.  Thinking back to the beginning of the week, it always seems so far away.  It will never cease to amaze me how fast time goes by.  Ironic because sometimes we wish it could go quicker, but at the end of the day, it just goes too fast.

1.  Sunday Morning breakfast.  It's my favorite.  There is no rush, Martin makes it, and it includes bacon.  Enough said.

2.  It was 50 degrees on Monday!  It felt amazing!  It was so nice to run around and get my errands done without my big bulky winter coat on.  Then, I was actually able to work on a project in my garage with the door up!  The sun was shinning, and I had daylight streaming in.  I hope I get to see more of those days soon! (I hope the shear number of exclamation points used shows you how excited this really made me!!!)

3.  Monday night Martin and I went out for crepes.  There is this cute little shop that we visit every few weeks, Creme of the Crepe.  There is two great things about it.  One, they have gluten free crepes.  The Metropolis is my favorite!  Two, Martin claims to have this thing against French food, but he knows I love it.  So he goes with me, I really think it's starting to grow on him!

4.  I received this great piece of real mail from a lovely and amazing friend this week.  It totally made my day!

5.  I discovered this app this week on my phone that I think is crazy.  It's called Instant Heart Rate.  I  actually downloaded it months ago, and never opened it till this week.  It has you put your finger over the camera lens and it calculates your heart rate.  I don't know how it does it (I'm sure if I just did a little reading I could figure it out) but it's like magic.  You can check it and record it, and even label it.  For example it could be resting, or after exercise, moderate activity.  Its just crazy to me that your phone can now read your heart rate!

I hope you had a good week!  This next week is forecast to bring on warmer temperatures and I am super excited about that!  Here is to a relaxing, yet hopefully productive weekend.  I'll be back on Monday with a tutorial for the mirror that I featured in my Spring mantel, stay tuned.


  1. that breakfast looks amazing. i could eat breakfast all day every day. skip the other meals. do you think the heart rate thing is accurate. i did it once about a year ago and was convinced it couldn't possibly be. but maybe it is?! showing some linkup love. new reader! karli -

  4. I couldn't agree more with you about liking to reflect upon the week with the Friday posts. I'm so glad you joined us for the linkup! LOVE your blog and so happy I found ya! :)

  5. I don't know how accurate it is, I still haven't figured out how a camera lens detects your heart beat! I'll have to compare it to my actual heart rate monitor and see! Love your blog, awesome chalkboard!!

  6. Thank you SO much, I'm excited to be found! Your blog is amazing and inspiring!
