High Five (+ 4) For Friday!

Happy Friday!  Oh, gosh.  Guys, I've got a problem.  It's Friday which means I'm linking up with Lauren to review my week's highlights.  Five of them, to be exact.  But I can't narrow it down to five!  I guess that's a good "problem" to have.  I'll take it!

Reese's Easter candy will be the death of me!  I just can't say no!


I had a Google Hangout with JamieKim the other night!  So great to chat with them in real life, to see their precious kiddos in action, and to meet two of Jamie's sisters, Julianna & Janae!  I have also learned that when I become a mommy, I will develop what I now call "mommy A.D.D.", the ability to stop mid- sentence, walk away from a conversation to for minutes to be with your child, and then return like nothing happened.  I was so amused at how well Jamie and Kim did this!

I was sad that my Google Effects app wasn't working, because I couldn't add a cool mustache or hat!

I happened to check my Traffic Source "Search keyword" category yesterday, and this popped up to give me an instant smile:

I'm so glad someone came upon TBS through searching those words on the internet!  How cool!
Most likely, they came upon THIS post.

It's official!  I'm definitely going to my first NFL game next season.  The Green Bay Packers are coming to town to play the Houston Texans!  I am not a sports fanatic, but I am a Packer fan by marriage.  (That counts, right?)  Tickets are on sale yet, but we are going to that game!


My LUSH order arrived!  It included: Trichomania shampoo, Jungle conditioner, Shampoo Bar Tin, None of Your Beeswax lip balm, and a sample of Sweetheart soap.  I'm so excited to use my new vegan stuff!


Bonus highlights:
I'll be in San Diego in one week!

Bobbi and I exchanged many a funny e-mail yesterday discussing my blog design, and I am so amped about working with her!  She's a true gem, and she is my favorite self-proclaimed awkward person in the world!

Houston had a few cool, brisk mornings this week which was a nice change!

I'm beginning to accept that my blog is slowly transitioning into a weird combination of modern tree-hugger blog and mommy blog.  I enthusiastically write posts like yesterday's Parental Intentions, and I seem to get more comments than usual -- lengthy ones, at that!  I love it!  I've also never used the hash tag #babyfever more than I did yesterday.


Life is good, people!  If you make my lemonade, it will be sweet too.  How was your week?

It is not very often that I find a blog I love immediately, but I definitely have found that in your blog! I love your blog and now I'm going to have to get caught up on all of your old stuff! Oh and I LOVE Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, but my favorite are the little football like ones in the bag! Happy Friday!

Wow, sounds like you have been having an amazing week, good for you!:)

Oh my word Reeses ... seriously. Good. You can get Reese's peanutbutter cups in some of the smaller convenience stores here and I inhale them ... literally!

Have a fabulous weekend and enjoy those Lush products. They look amazing!:)

Reese's Easter eggs have to be the best candy ever. I swear, it's the perfect chocolate:peanut butter ratio in the whole world.

I was about to proclaim my mutual, and slightly obsessive, love for Reese's PB Eggs. Then I read the first 4 comments....and was like, right, apparently that's universal.

Sadly, they do not have them here in Oz :(
I stocked up last Easter and brought several packages with me (which lasted a hot minute before I went bezerk on them.)

Happy Friday BBFF!

Um... I need to try a google hangout. That looks amazeballs.

I can never turn down Reese's Egg. Never.

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said...

I really, really like you and your positive attitude...in case I don't tell you enough! Maybe it comes with being a modern day hippie? Or maybe you're just awesome? Probably a little bit of both...

LOVE the keywords that landed people on your page...SO TRUE!

And I'm so excited for your trip - I'll be living through you that's for sure!

LOVE YOU!
And I miss you!
Because I'm a needy/clingy little sister ;)

Holly said...

Ohh Reese's Easter eggs! How is it that candy always tastes better when it is shaped/colored for the holidays?!

Callie @ YouDontEvenKnow said...

I'm a born and raised Wisconsin girl so I had to stop by and say...

GO PACK GO!!!! :)

Kristen said...

Easter candy, especially Reese's Eggs are the best! I am kicking myself for starting a cleanse the week before Easter!

Have a fantastic weekend =)

Jayme and Mendi said...

We love us some LUSH products!! Can't wait to hear what you think of everything. Their solid shampoos are the BEST! And I am in love with the Veganese conditioner...it totally smells like SweeTARTS!

Sounds like you had an awesome week! Lush products are the best! Enjoy!

Vic said...

I love lush, to the point that I can NEVER decide what to buy and I have to wait till my brithday/christmas to be suprised. The perils of indecisiveness!

jami lynn said...

I just bought my first LUSH products on my trip to Chicago. I got a couple bath bombs and a body butter bar, they also have me a few samples that I csn't wait to try. Please review your products after you've used them for a while :)

Cait Emma said...

Beverly said...

I CANNOT escape candy either!! And it's soooo bad when all the Easter candy is 75% off at every single store I walk into... WHYYYYYY?!?!

Girl, how do toy like the shampoo bar? I've been trying to find a more natural shampoo alternative. The one I currently use is 80% organic, but this vegan bar looks great! Let me know!
