5 on Friday

WOOOHOOOO! It's Friiiiiiday!!!
After my first FULL week back to work/reality, I realize more and more....
that I should go back to Antigua and get a job there so I can live in paradise :)
Since that's not a realistic choice right now, let's do some 5 instead...

{1}-New House!
In case you missed it yesterday, MG and I closed on our house on Wednesday afternoon! It's definitely overwhelming to think about all of the things that need to be done between now and when we move in (not to mention the YEARS that will be spent paying it off), but it's also REALLY exciting that we have our first house together, purchased together, and as a married couple. It's pretty damn special :)

{2}-Wedding Drama Couple's Wedding
This weekend is the wedding drama couple's wedding. I'm glad that the weather is looking nice, since I think everything is outdoors, and no one likes rain on their wedding day. To be honest, I'm glad that their wedding is finally here and that after this weekend we can finally put all of this stupid wedding drama behind us, hopefully. And I'm extra curious to see just HOW similar our weddings will/won't actually be since I didn't change everything for our wedding we didn't "coordinate"  on anything, as she had hoped. I have a feeling it will be very different!
I'm trying to refrain from posting pics from the wedding or our honeymoon this weekend to be respectful of the fact that it's their wedding weekend and I don't want to take anything away from that, even if we aren't the best of friends.

{3}-Orange is the New Black
Since MG and I FINALLY had some down time this week, we were looking for another show to get addicted to into and we'd heard really good things about Orange is the New Black from several people so we tried it out, and ended up watching 2 episodes in one night. Yes, it has some gratuitous nudity (what doesn't anymore, seriously?), but the show itself is pretty interesting. Since we're only done with the 2nd episode, I'm curious to see how the rest of the season goes.

{4}-Spring Cleaning
It's Spring (altho the weather has recently had other ideas about that), and with that comes the urge to purge! With our upcoming move, it's a great time to go through everything and get rid of things we just dont use or need anymore--less stuff to pack!! We started this process last night (ok I did, and that's all it takes for MG to get on the purge train), and there's already a big pile waiting to be donated by the front door. I think this 'cleanse' will continue into the weekend, followed by a trip to Goodwill with a big haul of stuff. It always feels good to get rid of the old, so you can welcome in the new.

{5}- #weddingfails
I love Jimmy Fallon. I also love all of the little sketches he does on his show weekly, like Thank You Notes....but I also really enjoy his #hashtag segment. He sends out a hashtag looking for tweets on that topic. Last week's was #weddingfails, and since we had just gotten back from our awesome wedding and honeymoon, I was pretty interested to see what came up on this segment. I'll let you take a peek for yourself, because some of them are pretty funny:

Hope that helps to get your weekend off to a fun start! :)
Happy Friday, lovies!


  1. LOVE those wedding fails. Hilarious! And can't wait to hear about the wedding this weekend. Should be interesting, that's for sure:) Have a great weekend, Jenn!

  2. Cannot wait to hear how the wedding goes this weekend! And yay for purging and getting ready for moving!

  3. Oh man, I just went back and read your previous posts about the wedding drama...we went through a fairly similar situation (though doesn't sound nearly as bad as yours) and it was with family both planning fall weddings (8 weeks apart). oye. not fun, and it feels like it takes the fun out of planning. I think we've put it behind us mostly too but it's crazy how much drama can be involved!

  4. Congrats on the house! That's such a huge deal! We bought our house a little over a year ago, and we still can't get over the fact that it's ours! :)

    I found you through the link up! I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. The urge to purge has hit our house too! And Jimmy Fallon cracks me up! Happy Friday :)

  6. Hope the wedding goes smoothly! And I couldn't get into the Orange show-- it just didn't click with me. But holy wow, Jimmy Fallon is hilarious. :)

  7. yay to new home! woot party time!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
