This week, we are writing about Five Friday Favorites.

What am I loving this Friday?

1. It’s the start of a wonderful weekend of celebrating. One of my best friends is getting married and we are so excited to be present for the occasion. It’s going to be a crazy trip, but worth every moment.

2. I am back among the employed. I’ve been staying at home for the past seven years, and while I have loved it, little man doesn’t need me quite as much during the day, since he’s at school. A part time opportunity arose and I jumped at it. So far, it’s been amazing, I am learning so much and I am excited to see what it brings.

3. Molly is doing much better. Some of it is her injections, and the rest of it is the weather warming up and giving her joints a break. It’s such a huge relief to see her walking around more normally and not struggling as much. We are very blessed to have such an amazing and compassionate vet who really takes such great care of his patients.

4. Training has been going great. I’ve had a few struggles with my breathing, but I’ve been feeling pretty strong and accomplished. There’s something great about feeling productive and like I’m making improvements. It’s almost addicting – it makes me want to keep pushing.

5. Spring Break will be here in just one week! I am so thrilled to have a week where we don’t have any sports or extracurriculars and can just kind of fly by the seat of our pants. I love a busy schedule, but sometimes, it’s nice to do absolutely nothing.

What are you loving this Friday?

  1. Weeeeee all five of those are so amazing! Congratulations to your friend that is so, so wonderful!

    I’m glad to hear Molly is doing better!

    I am so excited for your new job (an a little bit jealous haha!)

      LOL! So far, it’s been amazing!

      I’m glad Molly is better, too. I mean, she’s getting older and we all know what the reality of the situation is, but at least she is managed and comfortable. See you soon!!!!!!

  2. I cannot wait until spring break. I actually planned on 2 weeks but had to cut my Florida trip to one week because of some family issues. But I’m still taking the week off of work. I need it!

  3. I can’t imagine how different it feels for you to be back at work after all this time. I’m sure I’ll be there too, one day. Glad it’s going smooth.
    Have fun with the wedding plans this weekend. They’re always a fun excuse to get a little crazy with the hubby.

      It’s definitely interesting. Now that i’ve started, I am loving it and wondering why I didn’t do it sooner, but I’m honestly very happy so far.

      We had a great time at the wedding. It was small and casual and just perfect.

  5. Have fun at the wedding! I actually love weddings. I mean, there’s cake so….
    Congrats on the new job! I crave routine, and having to go to work each day definitely provides that. I’m glad you’re enjoying it!
    Yay for Molly! It’s the worst when our fur kids aren’t up to par. I honestly love my vets. I really trust their opinions, and feel like they genuinely care about my four leggeds.
    Nice work with the training too! I’m still struggling to find some fitness, but it will come. I agree, once you see improvements it’s addicting!
    Enjoy spring break! I miss that so much. It’s been so crazy here with the snow and all the problems that come along with it, I could use a little break! At least the sun is shining today, and they’re predicting a snow-free week ahead! Woohoo!

      Sadly, we didn’t make it to the cake. Little man was exhausted and we ended up having to leave a little early. We had fun though.

      The job is great so far. It’s part time so a little irregular, but that’s ok.

      Our vet is the best. I’m so glad we found him – we would be lost without him and his staff. I’m so glad you have the same feelings for yours.

      Yay for no more snow!

  6. So glad Molly is improving!
