5 on Friday


What do you do when you don't have a lot of blog fodder? A linkup, of course! I thought I'd join in on the 5 on a Friday fun today with Darci at The Good Life Blog.

Last night I got to go to Paige and Elsa's Back to School night. I am really glad that I went because I enjoyed meeting their teachers and of course hearing about how wonderful my children are. Drives to Topeka on a weeknight are always exhausting, but worth it since I get to spend a little extra time with my babies.

After being hit with a very nasty cold for over a week, I am finally getting better. In fact, I have actually gotten out of bed the last two mornings at 4:45AM and gone for a run. It was on the treadmill because running in the dark still skeeves me out, but it was a run and I'm glad to be back at it. Taking a week off is no bueno.

My sister and her husband and their adorable son will be here this weekend! They live up in Chicago so I don't get to see them that much, but they are trekking down for the holiday weekend. We are having a family get-together at my aunt and uncle's house which is always a good time. Plus, I have all the girls this weekend so it will be nice and loud.

I will be making PW's Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos and my Avocado Corn Salsa to bring to the party. Both dishes are always huge hits and I'm excited to get my noms on. I really need to take a picture of the Salsa, but I do not do well with food pictures. Maybe I'll try that this weekend and post the recipe with the pic next week.

Jason and I finally started watching Game of Thrones (about time). We did have our Netflix subscription set to streaming only and we upgraded to include DVDs. I've only seen two episodes so far, but I'm hooked! Tyrion is by far my favorite character. I still hear Edna Mode's voice in my head saying, "No Capes!" though.


Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
