My Friday Five

Yay for Friday!  I can't say this week has flown by, I seem to have come down with a little something and being sick in the summer just doesn't seem fair!  But it is not going to stop me!  On we go with my week in review.

1| I've been trucking forward with my #100happydays challenge.  It's funny because when I started it the challenge mentioned that something like 71% of people fail to finish it.  If you know me, I don't fail, so that's enough of a challenge right there to complete it, though sometimes I find myself remembering in the last minutes of the day to actually post my photo!  I know some of you have talked about jumping on the band wagon with me and starting the challenge, do it!  I would so love for others to join in, you can start it at any time.

2| I was way past due for some new running shoes, thanks Mom and Dad for the birthday gift!  It was my first time going to an official running store and getting fitted for running shoes.  It was pretty cool to try on and compare all the different styles, not so cool to have to run on a treadmill in a store with someone filming your gate from behind.

3|  My husband has been bugging me for a juicer forever, and my parents finally gifted him one for his birthday.  As you can see, he was clearly really excited about it!  I will admit it is pretty cool, as long as he does the dirty work!

4| I was in the city for a work event that we had on Wednesday night and I was walking back to my car and got to witness the end of a date.  My guess is it probably wasn't the first date, maybe a couple dates in, but it was so cute!  The couple was walking right in front of me and they must have gotten to her apartment and stepped to the side and they were doing the whole "I had a really great time tonight" thing as I walked past.  It definitely put a smile on my face!

5|  I've started to mess around with my new camera a bit, even though I don't feel like I know what I am doing at all, I am super excited about it.  Right now my number one subject is my cats, they always seem to be available!  I couldn't help but share this one I captured of Charlie, I'm so excited he seems to be feeling better, he goes back in for a check up on Tuesday so we will see what they say.

This week also marked a blog milestone, I surpassed 100 posts on this little blog of mine!  I still feel like I'm just getting my feet wet, I can't believe I have posted over 100 times.  I hope everyone has a great weekend ahead of them.  We have a work event in my home town this weekend, even though it will be busy I'm looking forward to getting to visit home for a quick bit.  See you next week!
