High Five for Friday

Happy Friday my friends! This week managed to feel like the longest and shortest week at the same time. My husband and I started off the week with a night out of town and away from the kids for the JT/Jay Z concert in Hershey, PA. When we returned, my husband headed out of town for the rest of the week for work. I can’t complain because he’s rarely away and I have many friends whose husbands travel frequently, but life is just not the same without him here. Luckily he’s home in time for the weekend :)

Here’s a look back at my week:


It was amazzzzing. We were surrounded by terrible singers, view blockers, kids chaperoned by their parents, and a group of 20 or so teenagers all dressed identically, and none of it bothered me. We felt old for a minute but then realized that our 30’s have been great so far, and plus JT is our age anyway, it’s not Beib’s for goodness sake!


We spent the night at the City House bed and breakfast in Harrisburg. It was so beautiful, peaceful and right along the water. I’m a huge fan of B and B’s verses hotels. They are so much more personal, well decorated, serve better food, are quaint and lovely.


In case you’ve been in a closet, it’s shark week! I’ve been sitting with my son with my hand on the remote ready to change the channel at every bite of a limb. These people are nuts. NUTS.













I attended my first webinar this week and I loved it. It was put on by Kate of The Small Things Blog, one of my favorites. If you don’t recognize the blog, you’ll surely have seen her all over pinterest…she’s the hair girl. She’s also the sister of Lauren Elizabeth, who I’m linking up with today. She had some great advice that I am taking into account.

How was your week?

Linking up with Lauren Elizabeth today for H54F.
