Five on Friday

1. Long Weekend

Yahooo!!!  Is everyone else so excited?  Its crazy how much happiness comes with an extra day on the weekend.  I have a photo session with 2 Seniors this weekend, but other then that, no plans. Well, I say no plans, but I have to stick with my P90X, I have a house to clean, I have a pile of laundry, I have chores I need to do.... so its basically work.  But work at home is so much better then work at work.  Can I get an Amen?

2. Fantasy Football

I don't even care.  I make it known that I'm not a huge sports fan.  I don't have time to even understand how games are played.  Sitting down on a Monday night, or a weekend & watch a game - or even a FEW games?  Yeah.. not in this girls schedule. #alwaysbusy
But Ricky went to his Fantasy Football draft last night.  So I know I'm going to see a lot of papers around the house, hear a lot of "Oh man" or "Oh yeah", have a lot of "Turn the station over so I can see the score" ... People take this stuff seriously.  SER-IOUS-LY!!!!  I don't get it.  At all.  Have a great year you crazy sports people.

3. Joan Rivers

I'm sitting on the edge of Twitter every minute trying to see if there are any updates on Joan Rivers... like she's a great aunt of mine or something.  I just really like her.  I know she says things that gets her in trouble - but she's a comedian. That's what they do.  Did anyone watch her when she was on Celebrity Apprentice? You can't say the woman doesn't work.  She's clever, has a smart mind & you can tell she really cares about people.  If you haven't seen her documentary - you really should. (that's the name of it in the picture above) ... I hope I'm still that active & doing everything she does at 81 years old.

4. Loom Knitting

I did it! I made my first hat on my loom ... in less then 24 hours.  Granted, I thought it was going to be an adult size hat, but its only going to fit a small child, but I'm learning.  I don't know how to gauge the sizes of these things yet.  & while I like the look of straight, regular knitting better, this at least feeds my fiber fix that I've been missing so badly.

I sat & watched hours - I'm talking HOURRRSSSSSS - of loom knitting videos on youTube yesterday & I'm ready to crank out some socks & slouch hats & scarves.  I just want to make things again.

I do have to keep an eye out though on Harvey Dent. He just keeps staring at the looms.  They are round.  Which to his eyes are his favorite toys - Frisbees.  If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you know his destructive ways are still in full force... it would be nothing for him to tear up a loom... or two... or three...

(Just this week)

5. Brad & Angelina... & Jennifer

So Brad & Angelina got married... & the whole word rejoices?  Apparently... not in my world.  In my world, I'm like, "That's nice... move on"... but its on every entertainment page over & over & every entertainment news show.  Its not like they haven't been together for the longest time & a dozen kids ago...

The one thing that irks me is how they still, STILL, bring up Jennifer Aniston.  I heard on a show last night, "I think they planned their wedding because Jennifer Aniston has a new movie coming out & she's doing press for it"... really?  REALLY?  & one of the headlines I saw just this moring said, "Jennifer Aniston looks sad about Brad & Angelina"... oh my gosh people... MOVE ON!

Me thinks she's over it...

For the record, I think Justin Theroux is WAY hotter then Brad Pitt...

Are you #TeamJennifer or #TeamAngelina?  #TeamBrad or #TeamJustin?
Do you loom knit? (send me some tips)
What are your long weekend plans?


  1. No to Team Jennifer AND Team Angelina. ;-)

    And I don't loom knit, although maybe I'd like to?? What else can you make besides hats? I think you should share a picture of your hat you made.

    Oh know ... Harvey, Harvey, Harvey. He's doing a fine job of reminding me why, when we get another dog, it'll be one who's definitely outgrown the destructive phase! ;-)

  2. "Oh know"? What's up with that? S/B "oh no", of course. Ugh.

  3. I like still makes me sad that Bradjollena hooked up when he was married..that is just the worst pain. I pay little attention, though I love that they seem to do a lot of good with their bazillions.
    We are going to a friends for dinner Sat., and that is the only plan other than church on Sunday...sounds good.
    Hope you accomplish lots and still have time to read, read, read.....


  4. Yes it is crazy that they still bring up Jennifer!!! Sorry to hear that Joan Rivers is sick. I did see that yesterday on Facebook. It's cool that people have fun doing those Fantasy Football things. I'm not a fan but it's fun to have a hobby.

  5. Could care less about any of them. I mean, I don't want anything to happen to them, but I don't care about hearing about their love lives. haha

    Love loom knitting. I'm working on a yellow and white baby hat right now.

  6. I'm 100% #teamjennifer :) Justin is definitely better looking than Brad hehe!

  7. Always team Jennifer!! I heard about Joan Rivers - I do hope she'll be ok - I love fashion police with her! Hope you have a great weekend!
