Five Things

I tried typing a "Happy" in front of that,
but it just wasn't working.
Sometimes I feel like I'm finally getting used to Mondays.
But then they actually get here.


Last week, my main girl Erin did this on her blog
and you already know how I love stealing borrowing ideas.
Plus, it's another way for me to talk all about me
and uh, let's be real.
That's one of my most favorite topics of discussion.

5 Things You'll Find in my Bag:
Besides the kitchen sink...

1. Burt's Bees. Always.
2. My Hobo wallet. (The only reason I'm name-brand dropping on that one
is because it is my most favoritest thing ever. I've had it for like 3 years
and it is, hands down, the best wallet I've ever carried.)
3. My cell phone, when it's not in my coat pocket or glued to my hand.
4. Sunglasses case with sunglasses in them 50% of the time.
(The 50% of the time it's not actually sunny, might I add.)
5. Pens. There every where in there. Hence the ink marks all over the bottom.
Shh....I'm just trying not to think about it. 

5 Things You'll Find in my Bedroom:
For some reason, I giggled a little at this
wanting desperately to have something naughty to say.
But I do not.

1. Dog hair. Sorry if that makes me sound gross. I swear I'm not.
And even though I hate cleaning, I do it. Quite often.
But I swear, our bedroom is the one room in the house that collects the most dog hair.
2. A half empty turvis of water on my bedside table from the night before.
3. Two of my favorite pictures in the whole house.
See below.
4. Clothes. Clean, dirty, undecided.
Throughout the week they seem to pile up everywhere.
5. An unmade bed. Again, sorry if that makes me sound like a slob.
But I hate making the bed.

5 Things I've Always Wanted To Do:

1. Visit all 50 states.
Preferably in a cross country trip.
Even though, yes, I realize in order to get to Alaska and Hawaii
I would have to fly or boat.
2. Ride (or even pet) a real elephant.
3. Write a book.
(Okay, that ones kind of a stretch. But I have always thought about it.)
4. Go to New York for New Year's Eve.
5. Own a 4-Runner.

P.S. I had a really hard time thinking about things I've always wanted to do
because a lot of the things I've always wanted to do....I've finally already done. 
Impressive, I know! Now it's time to start a new dream list.

5 Things I'm Currently Loving:

1. Weekends. Like duh.
2. Pretty Little Liars. I can't even begin to talk about how obsessed I am with that show.
3. Chex Mix cereal.
It's gluten-free, delicious, and I've been eating my weight in it recently.
4. The fact that January is almost over.
Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but January has been cold and long.
I'm over it.
5. The fact that Willow and I are currently wearing matching sweaters.



  1. love the matching sweaters haha, and I feel ya on January being long and cold, I'm done with it AND on the chex mix, it's my go-to snack.

  2. We have so much in common! I absolutely LOVE Berts Bees... I have wayyy too much dog hair in my bedroom. And I always have a half drank tervis tumbler of water beside my bed! Love this post, I might have to steal the idea!

  3. Yayyy I'm so glad you did this! I love the besides the kitchen sink comment haha
