friday’s four things

Anybody else feel like this week just sucked the life right out of them?  Smile

I just never really got a good flow with life this week.  Luckily it’s the weekend and I have an extra pair of hands to help me (makes all the difference, no?).  We have a pretty chill weekend lined up so I’m excited to get a few things done around the house before next week’s holiday.  I have a feeling it’s going to be crazy at the coffee shop so I want to try and get ahead on paperwork and payroll.

So I’ve seen this quiz floating around in blogworld lately and it looked like fun so I scooped it up.  If you blog and want to play along, I’ve created a blank copy at the bottom of the post – just highlight, copy and paste right over into your own post (remember to link back so I can get a ping and go read!).  Here goes….

Four places I’ve been:

  1. Las Vegas
  2. Yellowstone National Park
  3. Vail, CO
  4. Destin, FL

(sadly never out of the US.  That needs to change ASAP!)

Four places I’d rather be right now:

  1. Colorado (a piece of my heart will always be there – good thing Blend 2015 is back in BOULDER next year!)
  2. Anyplace warm!  Why is it so cold already?!?!
  3. Anywhere that lulls Porter into sleeping through the night.  He’s on a strike.
  4. I can’t think of a fourth.  I like being right where I am (which is currently standing at my kitchen table, listening to Henry read his Astronomy lesson).

Four things I don’t eat:

  1. Fast food.  There are two exceptions and both from McDonald’s: vanilla cone and an egg mcmuffin.  Yum.
  2. Olives.
  3. Those little mini corn things that you find at the salad bar.  What ARE those?!?  Gross.  That’s what they are.
  4. Most squashes.  I just don’t.  The texture or something.

Four of my favorite foods:

(again…why do I have to narrow this?  too hard.)

  1. Eggs (in any form).
  2. Cereal.
  3. Froyo (duh – I own a froyo shop!).
  4. Grilled chicken (boring but I could pretty much eat chicken for any meal…just goes with so much.)

005

 

Four TV shows I watch:

  1. Scandal (our current fave)
  2. Gilmore Girls.
  3. The Office.
  4. Parks & Rec.

Four things I’m looking forward to this year:

  1. Continued growth in my MoveMore groups!
  2. Continued growth in my relationships (family, friends, God)
  3. The upcoming holidays!  (and our traditions…)
  4. Ringing in another year with Travis.

012

Four things I’m always saying:

  1. Stop.
  2. Quiet.  (or shhhhhhhhh!)
  3. Please (we’re big on manners over here).
  4. I love you.
