High Five For Friday

Happy, happy Friday!

My eyes have been glued to my computer screen at work all week as I organize and revamp our operations, and yesterday, it got to the point that it felt like my contact lenses were sucking on my eyeballs.  It sounds terrible, and it feels terrible.  I had to keep reminding myself to blink more often.  ;)  Fortunately, my eyes will catch a break this weekend... as they read a textbook.  Yipee.  I'm ready to power through! 

Here are a few highlights from my week:

Mr. TBS surprised me with tickets to Shen Yun in December!  This award-winning touring company revives Chinese tradition through dance and original music.  It looks incredible!  Can't wait!

Do you guys remember my friend Mae?  Guess what?!  The adoption is complete, and Abi is home!  I literally cried tears of joy for her family!

My friend Dixie/Liz/Ellie (We share the name crisis.  Ha!) currently lives in Germany.  Since she's abroad, we use a Walkie Talkie (and texting) app called Voxer.  This week, she sent me a picture of her new Firmoo glasses with the message "My new glasses for under $10, thanks to you.  They just arrived today!"  You can't beat that.  Firmoo, you are too good to we glasses folk.  You get your first pair FREE, y'all.

If you know any aspect of theatre, you will love What Should We Call Actors and How Do I Place That?  Instant pick-me-ups.

I've decided that Lauren is my favorite kind of "bad influence."  She tweeted a photo of her new hello tray from Target, and I bought one that night.  Couldn't resist.  I don't have anywhere to put it right now, but I couldn't resist.

If you need me this weekend, I'll be the girl with her head stuck in a textbook

I have been eyeing it for months. MONTHS!
But now that I've moved, I don't really have anywhere to put it! So I'm practicing not spending unnecessary money. BE PROUD ;)

I hope you get to relax a little this weekend!

That tray is so cute! I saw it on clearance the other day. I would've considered buying it, but I have nowhere to put it in my teeny tiny place.

I've been reading about the adoption! Absolutely incredible to read!
