Friday Five

Happy Friday, loves...and it's the last Friday of March! Can you believe how quickly time is flying? I feel like it was just yesterday that we were ringing in the New Year!
My 5 favorites this week are...

{1} Thursday
I took yesterday as a sick day and stayed home. I wanted to on Tuesday and Wednesday but I had too much going on at work to stay home, so I took my opportunity and rested (and snuggled with Cooper). I'm feeling better, and hopeful that I'll be able to kick this cold in the next day or so. Yesterday it also finally got up to 76 degrees (we won't talk about how there's a high of 45 today), so I was able to get out and take Cooper for a walk...in shorts!
I'm definitely ready for 80 degree days....

Sometimes you just need the reminder that there's a greater good to what you're doing, even when it's incredibly stressful. 
My job makes a different in kid's lives, and at the end of the day, that's pretty damn cool.

{3} These Funnies:
I love Ryan Gosling.

When you're trying to eat well, but you're home sick all day:

{4}These cute beachy clothes:

Now, someone get them for me and sneak them into my suitcase. 
Please and thank you :)

{5} Vacay!
If you guys don't hear from me for the next week, that's because I'll be at the beach with my husband, soaking up the sun, relaxing and drinking tropical drinks. This one feels extra special because we'll be celebrating a year of marriage (a couple weeks early), and going back to the Dominican, which is the place we took our first vacation to together. It feels very full circle to be going back to celebrate our first year of marriage.
(FYI, we have someone house/dog sitting in case any creepers out there are thinking of breaking in)
 I didn't line up any guest posts, and don't have any posts going up so it's a total vacation from work life and blog life. Sometimes you just need a break from everything and this is it.
I'm getting a mani/pedi before we go, packing a bunch of cute dresses and swimsuits and heading off to paradise with my favorite person in the world!

I hope you have a great weekend (and week)!
I'll be back before you know it....hopefully, with a tan :)

  3. Have an amazing time! Congrats (early!) on a year of marriage..the trip is such a special way to celebrate! Loved the funnies too..especially the one about the sleeve of thin mints. I love brownie brittle, and I am such a sucker for just taking a piece every I walk past the pantry so then I find myself making excuses to walk through the kitchen to sneak a piece!

  9. I also took a sick day this week. There is nothing better than that sometimes. Just lying around in your sweats with your pet is so healing. I watched The Hunger Games Movie and all these episodes of Better Call Saul. It was bliss. I hope you feel better and cant wait to hear all about your trip! I love the DR!
