5 on a Friday


{ONE}
If you are single...I know you are out there wondering if you can  truly be comfortable without a boyfriend. Go read Juliette's post NOW. This girl has been spot on recently with her single lady wisdom. It's so nice and refreshing to hear these things, and know that she really means it. Plus, she's down right hilarious!

{TWO}
Fun Fact: I like to start dating people on major holidays. Skye and I started dating at Christmas 2003 then didn't talk for 10 months and reunited at Christmas 2004. You can read that story here. (not sure why you would want to at this point, but I did write about it). My first serious boyfriend and I started dating on Thanksgiving 2001 (date was 11/22/01). Holiday dates are my thing apparently.

{THREE}
Today is the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. 11/22/1963 is a date that I am all too familiar with, considering I am essentially a Kennedy freak. Their whole family has always been of interest to me, but specifically this tragic event and all the conspiracy surrounding it. It's such a scary thought! And a fateful day in our history.
 
{FOUR}
 It's Catching Fire weekend FINALLY! I went back this week and re-read the book because I couldn't remember all the little details. So glad I was able to do that before going to see the movie. I have such a crush on Peeta in this book! (sorry but not in the movie, Josh Hutcherson just doesn't do it for me)

{FIVE}
NASHVILLE HERE I COME!!! I'm beyond excited for my girls weekend away in NashVegas!!! I'll be reunited with my STL babies Kim & Cassie and finally get to meet Manda and the lovely Jackie! (Plus, my non bloggy friend Christa is coming from GA too!) My girls, my boots  and booze is all I will need! And apparently maybe a jacket since it's supposed to be quite cold. Let the fun begin!

Love the happy dance!

It's hard to learn to just be 'YOU' when you're single, but the moment it comes life changes. You are strong and wonderful and CHEERS to YOU!

Happy weekened!

Love that post from Juliette! So true and refreshing! I'm a total history nut too and anything Kennedy related. So today is definitely a day I always think about him & his legacy. And I'm SOOOOOO excited for Nashville! Can't wait to see you tonight!!!!

Have so much fun in Nashvegas!!! Can't wait to hear your recaps! And by recaps I mean I fully expect of gif of YOU doing the running man. And you know I'm also so so so obsessed with presidential stuff, so I've been reading all kinds of articles this week about the 50th anniversary. Such a sad and defining day in our history.

You are so sweet...thank you for including my post! I'm really glad you enjoyed it, like seriously. I'm going to see Catching Fire tonight and cannot wait!! Ahhhhhh I'm a Gale fan, even in the books!! Have fun in Nashville, sounds like it will be awesome! (so many exclamation marks)

Aly said...

Can't wait to see your pictures from Nashville! The last time I was there I was too young to realllly enjoy it! Have a blast!

Stephanie said...

That's so odd about the holiday dates. I think I've always avoided that, maybe so I never associate any fun holiday with an ex so I guess that's good. You need a new man to associate with Christmas :) Or maybe just an amazing pair of shoes... Yeah, the shoes.

Lauren Blehm said...

I just went and saw Catching Fire and I re-read the book yesterday too! It's funny because book Peeta creeped me out but Josh Is growing on me, haha!
