5 on a Friday!

Maybe you've noticed a pattern on this little blog o'mine... I'm a list person. Thursday Things to Love looks awfully similar to 5 on a Friday, but hey that's just how I roll. So let's roll on -
 
{ONE}
I know the Northerners are like "no big deal", but it finally snowed around here! Snow makes me a happy girl!!! I probably had about 3 inches at my house and it was so fluffy and pretty. This was Wednesday AM before I left for work. No snow days at my work! I know everybody is sick of hearing about the weather, but I couldn't help myself. I love this picture!
 
{TWO}
 
Rushed out Wednesday after work to buy this book immediately after seeing the movie trailer. I couldn't resist. I'm one of those people who HAS to read what every else is reading, I'm a total bandwagon jumper with books. I was half way through, with huge tears literally just streaming down my face until the end. Such a great story! I know this sounds crazy, but I don't always like my stories to have a happy ending so I love to see flawed characters and their battles with life. Cancer books are hard for me sometimes because my mom's struggles. She's not doing well right now, so it really hit home with me. She had just been diagnosed with cancer when I read My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. The timing is interesting on when I read them both. But I definitely loved this one, can't wait for the movie!
 
{THREE}
I got this little package this week in the mail from A Cut Above Boutique - LOVED the gold packaging!!! I won a giveaway from Rachel and got a $35 giftcard. I picked out this cute bow top & cross earrings for my prizes.

 {FOUR}
Superbowl weekend!!!!  Bittersweet because no more football until September after this... but I'm excited for this game! Of course I'm team Peyton, DUH he's a VFL (Vol for Life). No wonder he went to the Broncos, he just missed wearing orange! Cheering on him and the other 4 VFLs on the Denver team!
 
{FIVE}
Why do I love this song so much?
 
Happy Weekend, my loves!!

LB @ Table For One said...

I'm cheering for the Broncos this weekend too! It also snowed here but I was over it the first minute a flurry hit the ground, I'm not a fan!

P!nky said...

YAY SNOW! YAY PEYTON!

Cheering for the Broncos here too because of our 3 Kentucky boys on the roster!! Woohoo! I love your goodies from Cut Above! :)

Jackie said...

I am all about the Broncos this weekend.

Pamela said...

oooh, love those earrings!!

I'm so jealous of everybody who gets snow... because here in CA it doesn't snow. Like at all. Like the last time it snowed in my city was in the 1950s. But the grass is always greener I guess!

Amanda aka Manda said...

The snow is so pretty! I saw the trailer for that movie and now I totally want to read the book.

Helene in Between said...

great song choice. You will LOVE the book, it's soooo good.

TheTinyHeart said...

That bow top is super cute! It's funny that you're excited over the snow and I'm hoping it melts here over the weekend, haha.

That book is next on my list but I'm kind of scared I will just lose it. I'm a super crier. :/

Christina said...

just put that book on hold at the 'brary! have a great weekend!

Jordan said...

I love lists so I don't mind at all :) I'm rooting for Denver too but in all honesty, I don't really care who wins. But if I had to bet on it, I'm going with Peyton! Should be a good one. Have a great weekend!

lil desiqua said...

I'm in love with that song! And congrats on winning the giveaway- looks like you got some super cute goodies!! Happy weekend!

Katie said...

Cute purchased from A Cut Above!

Rambling Hermit said...

the snow looks so beautiful, but that's probably because we don't get any of it here. lol

Jordon said...

What a cute top!! I love it! I am currently looking for books to read to add to my 2014 list! I need to look into this one!

Happy Superbowl Weekend!

Tracy said...

I've been listening to Passenger forever!! Crazy with him getting famous now :)

wooohoooo for free things! That top is SO cute!

Sorry to hear about your mom :( Even with the "struggles" you have been through with her, I'm sure it's still hard! Praying for you girl!

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

Love the top you picked. I really want to read that book, as soon as I finish the two i am reading now. I love that song too! Happy Friday!

Alexa said...

You love that song so much because it's the background to that PRECIOUS Budweiser Super Bowl commercial! Also because it's just a great freaking song :)

And PEYTON PEYTON PEYTON. I'm wearing my Peyton Vols jersey all weekend, ain't nobody stoppin' me now, mah man is playing in the Supaaaa Dupa Bowl!

Joey said...

You and I are song soul sisters or something. I've been listening to that song on repeat all week long. I think something might be wrong with me (or maybe the time frame in which I read the book? I remember being rushed) but I didn't cry a single tear. But I hardly remember the story either. Maybe I need to give it another go--I'm usually a big cryer. I'm pretty sure I read it in the middle of me "depression" last year--so it's possible I just didn't care. I'll read it again soon.

I saw the preview for that book too and I'd been wanting to read it already but now I want to read it even MORE!

Ashley said...

I need to read that book! My brother had cancer when we were younger and My Sisters Keeper came out right when he was going through everything. It was way too hard to watch because it hit so close to home!

Jackie said...

I loved (and cried like a baby while reading) Fault in Our Stars!! Definitely a good read and I love snow, too. Here in Chicago it comes down often but the city keeps the Christmas lights on all winter long, which makes for a beautiful sight. Have a great Saturday and Super Bowl Sunday!

Elle Sees said...

love that book! read it when i was sick at the end of last year (nothing serious, just made me cry harder). can't wait til the movie comes out

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

I love that song and did you see it in the Superbowl commercial?? It was so sweet with the puppy :-)

Faith said...

We got so much snow. It's been snowing nonstop since yesterday ... crazy over here but beautiful at the same time.

I hope you had a good weekend regardless of the results of the Superbowl.

My-cliffnotes said...

his little lady said...
