High 5 for the 4th of July!

It's Friday!  It's the 4th of July!  I've got a 3 day weekend, how about you?

It was a super, super stressful week so this is going to be short, sweet, and to the point.  *high five!*

1.  I won fertility friendly personal lube from a giveaway over on the The Amateur Nester!  Thanks, Lisa, just hilarious since I'm not even close to trying to conceive right now.  Anyone want it?  Maybe I'll have a give away on here after I get it.

2.  Free lunch!  If you follow my instagram you saw that we got free lunch on Wednesday again.  This week was Bertucci's and it was delectable.

3.  My mom was in the hospital Tuesday into Wednesday.  That really isn't a good thing but something kind of sweet happened.  When I went to see her she was out of it and kept asking me to get my dad out of there because he was "the mean doctor who yelled at her," he did yell but she was trying to pull out her IV.  I asked her who I was and she said I was her best friend.  Broke and warmed my heart all at one time.  Love my mom, even when we fight, and I'm very happy that she's home and safe.  I'm hoping to write more about her next week.

4. Chats on my ride home with my best friend.  I love the random texts and phone calls we exchange.  NJ is not the end of the world, and thank God for modern technology to keep us connected.  Also, unbelievably thankful to have her be so willing to let me yell and cry in her ear.

5. Music that lifts your heart.  It was exactly what I needed to hear.

How was your week?
What are you doing for the holiday weekend?

Happy 4th of July!  Enjoy your independence!

  2. Yum, Bertucci's is the best!! Thinking about you and your mom! Have a great 4th of July.

  4. Free lunch is fantastic! I used to go to Bertucci's with my parents on Long Island, didn't realize they were still around!
