Friday Five

Look who showed up again.. Friday! 

After this week, there may be a driving ban on me for a while. Between a cranky woman who clearly didn't like people getting lost on the "private road" she lived on (if her neighbors are anything like her, I can actually believe they never have visitors on the street - sorry lady, I'll never make a wrong turn again in my life), an extremely entitled runner and a few "let me walk and text in the middle of the road completely oblivious to anything going on around me" people, I'm ready to put away my keys for a while. Okay, end rant. 

Besides getting enraged while driving this week, I've actually been such in a great mood. I feel like I've laughed my way through the entire week, and for anyone who knows me, this usually means laughing induced tears. I don't know why, but I don't mind! Any week you've laughed so hard you cry multiple times is a good week in my book. I also got together two old friends last night, and had such a great time. A bunch of laughs, great conversation and some old friends is quite possibly the best Thursday night (or any night!) activity. 

Anyway, I can't wait for the weekend to begin! Weird, I never say that! Tomorrow, one of my very best friends is running her first marathon and my college roommate and I are going to cheer her on. I'm not really sure how you "watch" someone run a marathon, but all I know is I plan on meeting her at the finish line with a beer. And maybe a donut or something. 

Now, drumroll please.... this week's Friday Five: 

James Marsden. I fell in love with James Marsden in 27 Dresses (Benny and the Jets, anyone?) and when I found this video of him singing "Friends in Low Places" with Lady Antebellum on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, well my heart almost exploded. Pretty much all my favorite things combined! And boy, he can sing! Watch below for instant happiness. 

Baby Shane. If you've been on the internet or watched the news at all in the past month or so, you've definitely heard of  Shane and his amazing parents. If you haven't, here's a quick overview: this adorable couple found out that their unborn baby has a rare disease that would cause him die shortly after being born. With the news, the couple made a bucket list of things to do before Shane was born, while they still had time with him. They never complained, but instead made the best out of a terrible situation, and you can do nothing but look up to them for that. It really stops to make you think and put things into perspective. Driving problems? Those seem like pretty good problems to have.

Utility Jackets. I had been coveting hunter green utility jackets since last year, but couldn't find one that I liked for a decent price. I finally found the perfect one at T.J. Maxx at the end of the summer and have been wearing it all the time this fall and getting so many compliments on it! It's great to pull a whole outfit together, stay warm and look trendy all at the same time. I'm loving this, this (on sale!) and this

Revenge. So, I'm a few years late to the game on this show, but I started watching it on Netflix and am totally hooked. However, on a scale of 1 to Pretty Little Liars, the show is around a 9 on how realistic it is. And how/why so many people just walk into houses on this show is beyond me, but it's still addicting. And an added bonus, Joshua Brown, aka Daniel, is pretty easy on the eyes. I'd definitely put it on your Netflix queue for the upcoming winter months. 

This Proposal. I'm a sucker for a good proposal story or video. Apparently, NBC has a new show coming out called Marry Me and their digital team put this video together for a lucky couple. I think my favorite part may actually be the last minute, after the proposal even happens. Just watch. 

Are you doing anything fun this weekend! Hope it's a great one!
