Friday Five

I keep forgetting about these Friday Five things. I love reading them on other blogs, so here's mine for this week!

1. I worked out so hard yesterday, I was in bed before 9pm. I wouldn't mind making this a habit.

2. My TBR pile is drowning me. I think I'm actually reading SLOWER now because there's so many piled up and it makes me nervous. hahaha.

3. So, my new part time job is at a dentist office. I see and hear quite a bit... but one thing that had me laughing this week, was a little girl that only brushed the front of her teeth. The hygienist was talking to the parent about brushing habits and the little girl said, "I didn't know I was supposed to brush the inside too!" That made for one embarrassed parent!

4. I bought a French phrase book. I'm not sure why. I'll blame Stephanie Perkins.

5. My ten year high school reunion is in October... I now have ten weeks to lose 30 pounds. Not possible?? Okay. I suppose I could settle for 10. Off to the gym!  o_O

Happy Weekend!


  1. Happy Friday! My TBR pile is so big it's about to topple over and kill me, lol. Also, my 7 year old has a dentist appointment next week.. I'm going to make sure she's been brushing the back of her teeth to avoid that embarrassment!

  2. Yes, I too blame Perkins for my new obsession w/ the French. Also, I my TBR is steadily growing b/c I can't STOP ordering new books! Good luck with the gym.

  3. I made myself stop ordering books because my TBR pile is threatening to absorb the table I keep it on (like The Blob). I think I'm going through new book withdrawal, though.

    Have fun at your 10-yr reunion. That's the only one I went to and I was so worried about what everyone would think, my fun was too forced to actually be enjoyable. (If that makes any sense.)

  4. I love working out so much that I want to go to sleep at 9 p.m.--glad I'm not the only one! Good luck with your TBR pile!

  5. I'm the same way right now with the books. If I have too many in my pile I get nervous and actually read ten times slower than normal. We're so weird! :)

  6. Ha, ha about the little girl.

    My TBR pile makes me nervous as well.

    Have a great week.

  7. The big 10 year! How fun! I missed mine because I was about to prego pop, but I got to get together with a bunch of them before and it was soooo much fun seeing how everyone changed...or stayed the same:) Have fun and you can totally do ten pounds with working out the way you are.
    You are my work out inspiration!

  8. My TBR pile is actually kinda manageable right now. Though, my reading has been slow as well. I've just been busy doing other stuff. And go you on working out! We had to replace our treadmill (it broke) so even though I'm now broke too, the new treadmill is AWESOME

  9. My dad is a personal trainer/nutritionist, and he says that it's healthy to lose 2 lbs a week, so it's certainly possible to do 20 pounds in 10 weeks! :)

  10. hope hubby was in bed with you before 9 too :P
    PS if you wanna lose 30 pounds quickly there's a simple advice: don't, and I mean DON'T, eat anything after 6PM! Drink 3litres of water, and throw yourself of veggies and gym.

  11. Are you trying to be invisible at our reunion? If you lose 30 lbs we won't be able to see you! Keep up the good work and don't stress about it.

    And I blame the French phrase book on living with RA! for two years. ;)
    I thought I told you that you were not allowed to pick up any new hobbies...
