High Five for Friday (Vol. 21)


The past few weeks I've used this post to post my top 5 favorite things simply because the past few weeks have been a bit rough on me.  Today, I'd like to get back into the swing of things and start celebrating the 5 high lights of of my week.

1. This week started off with a relaxing weekend.  Planning on a massive snow storm (that ended up being a disappointment) I spent most of the weekend in bed rewatching The Office.  I will never get enough of this show!  It makes me so happy to watch it over and over, to laugh at the jokes, and fall in love with the characters all over again.  Jim and Pam are by far my favorite TV love story, with Holly and Michael coming in a fairly close 2nd. 

2.  The lounging wasn't really in preparation for the snow day.  It was in preparation for girls night in with my coworkers.  We planned on drinking and staying up late since we were either not going to have to work on Monday or we'd get to work from home, at which point we'd all work together at Amanda's dining room table, since we were snowed in.  We woke up to just a dusting on Monday here in Northern NJ, but apparently South Jersey (where most of my coworkers live) got their fair share, so Monday was still at great day because it was basically just the 4 of us in the office anyway.
3.  Tuesday night with Collin.  Seriously, my nephew is 13 months old and I get the pleasure of caring for him nearly every Tuesday night while his parents handle some business meetings.  I could not be more excited to get this time with him.  He has such a personality and is simply my favorite little person in the whole world.  I cherish these nights together and look forward to talking about them so I can embarrass him when he's old and starts bringing girl friends around (just kidding... maybe.)
4.  Pitch Perfect Trivia night!  This movie is my favorite movie right now!  I could watch it over and over and over again!  So when I found out they were having a themed trivia night at our local Houlihan's there was no question that I was in!  I literally spent all day on Wednesday "studying" while I was "working" at work, and was ready to crush the competition.  I went with Jim and his best friend Dave, who also loves the movie, and we pretty much dominated until teams in the back started  cheating on their cell phones.  *sigh* Oh well, we came in 4th and still had a wicked good time.  I'm glad I went since I've never been to a trivia night before, and I'll definitely be going back in May when the do The office (refer to #1 on today's list.)   


5. I finally completed the 5 "pinterest" meals that I set out to do last week.  It wasn't a week straight but I cooked them all, they all turned out well, and I'm starting to branch out in my cooking ideas/abilities.  Thursday nights was especially good and easy!  Hopefully, I'll get a full post up about what I tried and how it went over the weekend.

That's it for me ladies!  As always, thank you for coming to hang out for a bit, I hope you all had a fabulous week and have an even better weekend!  Until next time...

    1. I watch it every Tuesday because my best friend has it on her DVR. My Tuesday routine has become watching Collin, once he's asleep I'll watch the previous night's How I Met Your Mother, and then Pitch Perfect. I love it! I have a serious problem with wathcing things repeatedly!
      Thanks for hosting the link up!

  4. I'll have to completely agree with you on everything you said about The Office. Every once in a while, I still go through withdrawals for not having new episodes to see every week. :)
