Five on Friday!

Happy Friday y'all! I hope this week has been treating you well! I've been enjoying my last few days off before the spring semester kicks off. I will not have a break until DECEMBER, when I graduate from grad school. I can't believe I will be done at the end of this year. So exciting!

One. I have started a new Bible study plan on the YouVersion Bible app. The plan that I am following is called "Maximizing Your Daily Life". I love studying God's word. It brings me such peace and clarity. I am also following the Jesus Calling devotional in addition to the YouVersion plan.

Two. Someone posted a really cool knitting/crochet project on Instagram the other day and I decided that I had to join in! It's a "mood blanket"project... the whole idea is to knit or crochet one square a day or week using colors of yarn that you have picked to describe your mood for that day. At the end of the year you join the squares together to make a beautiful blanket! Since I've been studying for my Praxis exam that I had today, I haven't had a chance to get started! I have picked out all of my yarn and assigned moods to certain colors. I plan on getting caught up this weekend! Since I'm a beginner, I'm going to have to watch some tutorials and research what type of squares I want to make. 

Three. My reading goal this year is 75 books. I would really like to do more, but with my class load + work I wanted to make a somewhat realistic goal. I've been really into Gillian Flynn's stuff lately (Gone Girl, Sharp Objects, Dark Places) so I downloaded a book that I've heard was similar, Reconstructing Amelia. I'm ready to dive into it this weekend! 

Four. Since I've been on Christmas break, I have been binge watching Sex and the City. I forgot how much I LOVE that show. I beg Jesse at random times to get me the complete series box set, but he never gives in (rude). Also, SATC ended TEN YEARS ago. Do you feel old yet? I do.

Five. Charlie got a little deep into the peanut butter jar tonight so I'll leave you with this funny little picture of him. ;) 

Hope you all have a great weekend! Stay warm! 



  1. let me know how you like that book, looks super interesting!

    1. I will! It has really good reviews from what I've read.

  2. I hope you never have to open the 'Angry, Annoyed, Frustrated' or the 'Stressed and Overwhelmed' as those are not positive vibes. You could just blame Jesse though. I can't believe he hasn't gotten you that SATC set. It was a great show. I still remember episodes well that I haven't seen in 10 years. Congratulations of the exam. Keep up the posts, this blog is already double the size of the last blog ;)

    1. Thanks Michael! I plan to keep going with it. I enjoy it!
