Cheers to This Thing We Call Friday!

Happy Friday, y'all!  It's been a great week, and as always, there are many highlights and things to be thankful for.  I love doing Lauren's High Five For Friday link-up, but it has gotten me in the habit of finding the bright spots in my week, even after seemingly boring "normal" weeks.  Thanks, Lauren!

#1

Today is my blog's birthday!  I didn't share the link with family or friends for two weeks, but exactly one year ago, I wrote my first blog post.  I was inspired by one of my best friends who had just deactivated her Facebook account.  It's ironic that her step back from social media encouraged me to dive into blogging.  Little did I know...  ;-)

** Clarification: This blog was private and only read by 13 friends and relatives under the name Being Mrs. K until I made it a public blog on January 30, 2012, and renamed it Trial By Sapphire.

I'm still thinking about Sunday's theatre outing to see The Lion King, because it was just that fantastic.  Loved it!

#3


I may have gotten sick, but I'm so glad it was short-lived.  I only missed one day of work!  But I'll be honest.  That one day of sitting in a calm and quiet house drifting in and out of sleep was bliss.  Amelie took good care of me.  And used me as a pillow.

Tuesday night was good for the soul.  Whit and I gabbed over delicious treats at La Madeleine before yoga.  It's so nice to have a friend nearby in this big ol' city.  Later that night, I caught up with my dad on the phone.  As usual, I felt like I was on top of the world afterward.  I always feel so encouraged and loved after talking with him.  That quality must have rubbed off on my over the years, because so many of you comment about how encouraging I am.  Ha!  Now you know where it comes from!

#5 

I did my first #vaguetweet today.  I laughed when I saw Ashley's response!


I am not pregnant, but I guess you'll just have to stick around to see what all the smiling is about!  (Oh, the suspense.  Is it killing you?  No?  Oh.  Well, can you just humor me?)


HAPPY FRIDAY, LOVER FACES!

Happy Blog Birthday!!
I have seen a lot of shows, but never The Lion King, it's one that I hear a lot of mixed opinions about, I really need to go for myself and see what I make of it.
I hope your weekend is bright.

You crack me up.
Also, I saw Brave yesterday, in Edinburgh, with a blog-friend. It was FANTASTIC. And I'm going to buy it and sob my heart silly watching it whenever I miss Scotland. So daily.
But since you told me I *had* to watch it, (not that I need persuading for Pixar!) I thought I'd let you know!
Thanks!

Have a great weekend- see you around the Twitterverse!
