Five on Friday!

Friday, May 16, 2014

Every week, I'm simultaneously surprised that we've made it to Friday and that it's here already. Time is weird, man. I don't have much to say, so let's get right to it and wrap up this week with 5 on Friday, a link-up hosted by AprilChristina, Natasha, and Darci! If you want to link-up, head over to one of their blogs, grab the button, and talk about any random 5 things on your mind this week!


I know that I shouldn't complain about the weather because at least it isn't snowing and yes, I am aware that spring is when it rains, but today's weather can bite me. I really don't mind the rain, as a form a precipitation. What I can't stand is how rain means low pressure, and low pressure means migraines and increased joint pain.

With online shopping, sometimes you win and sometimes you lost. I lost big time on my order from The Limited. The pants were comically large, the pop-over blouse made me look like a box, and the Ashton blouse was so sheer it reminded me of lingerie. Fortunately, the petite tops can be returned by mail with free shipping, and the pants can go back to the store. I guess I'm doing that this weekend. Better luck next time, I suppose!

Yesterday, I acquired and iPhone for work. To many, this would be thrilling. To me, this is confusing and I essentially now have a very expensive paperweight. I don't know what to do with an iPhone; I've always had Android smart phones. Also, compared to my S4, this thing is tiny. The only thing I use this for is sending and receiving texts and pages, and I guess I can get my work email. It's admittedly better than the Blackberry that IT made me trade in, despite the fact that I'm leaving here in 5 weeks but... almost anything would be better than a Blackberry, in my opinion!

Kina Grannis released a new album recently and I am listening to it on Spotify. I fell in love with her with her last album, Stairwells. Here's one of my favorite songs from that album:

I also really love, "I Will Be the One You Say Goodnight To," which we played at the wedding. Check it out!

I am really glad that this it the last piece of this post because the formatting in this is driving me insane. Things are moving all over the place and it's deleting my pictures and I don't know what the problem is but I am over it.

Have a good weekend, all!
