My Friday Five

I feel like this week has been one of those ones I have gone through in kind of a daze, aka it is time for a vacation.  Thank goodness for the long holiday weekend coming up next week.  I am looking forward to it like you wouldn't believe!

If you've been following along with my #100happydays you've already gotten a sneak peak into my week, here we go!

1| Last weekend I got to head back to my home town, Madison, WI for a quick little 36 hour work adventure.  We had dinner with my parents right off the capital square and I was sitting in the window of the restaurant with this as my view.  The sign of the restaurant was reflecting in the bus stop and I thought it was so cool.

2| It's always nice to go home, I definitely miss rolling green hills and the quiet of the country.

3| I found out they are building a Trader Joe's in my neck of the woods and you could have sworn I won the lottery with how excited I was about it.  It is still in the beginning stages of construction, as in a big pile of dirt on the ground.  But I am so excited to have one close by, no more having to make special trips just to go - I can go all the time!

4| One thing I love about summer is cherries.  It's a little funny to me because I can't stand anything cherry flavored, but give me the real thing and I could eat them until they make me sick.  I've had them everyday this week and still can't get enough!

5| Martin and I are going on a kayaking adventure this weekend. We signed up for a ghosts and gangsters tour on the Chicago River.  Now I personally am not so excited about the ghosts and gangsters (that's for Martin) but I am excited about the kayaking part, it should be a fun adventure!

Do you have any fun summer activities lined up for this weekend?  I hope to find a good balance between work and play because my bathroom project definitely needs some attention!  Hope everyone has a great weekend, see you Monday!
