Five on Friday

The weekend is here, and I'm starting it off with book club friday!  Can't wait for the girl time, cocktails, & dessert!  More beautiful weather has arrived for the weekend, so I will basking in 80 degree temps while working on our garden and enjoying a bonfire later.  Here's my five...  As always, thanks to all the lovely hosts: Christina, Darci, April, & Natasha!


I had my last Cardio Barre class this week, and I really wanted to go out with a bang!  I had big plans to where a thong leotard (with spandex, obvi) that I bought at Goodwill in college for a Call on Me party...  I'm pretty sure I still remember most of those moves!  Anyways, thong leotard was nowhere to be found, so sad.  I'm pretty sure I will never be able to snatch up something that awesome again!

My high school reunion is coming up this summer, and unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it.  If I still lived in my hometown I would definitely be there, but the weekend it falls on really doesn't work for our family to travel up there.  I'm a little bummed because the 10 year reunion just seems like a "must attend" event, but I suppose I'll survive.  In honor of this, here is one of my senior pictures for your viewing pleasure....

Since I've started running again, my knees have been hurting pretty bad.  First I thought that I was running too far & too fast without easing into it...  Then I thought I was just getting old (scary thought)...  But I realized that I really just need new running shoes; I've put far too many miles on my current pair.  A little unexpected shoe shopping?  Don't mind if I do!  I'm eyeing this pair (the pink may be a bit much), but we'll see what I go with.

I received lots of questions about the sweater I was wearing in my Mother's Day post, so thought I would share it with the masses.  It's Bobeau from Nordstrom; I have it in two colors and wear it all the time.  They are even on sale right now, so snatch one up!

You know I love a good desktop wallpaper, so here's my current favorite.  I'll be keeping this one up until I find a good summer one.

  10. My 10 year is this fall and I'm helping to plan it. I can't believe it's been 10 years! Def. Makes me feel old! Lol! Happy weekend!

  11. Obsessed with that desktop. And hadn't been to that lovely site till now!! Thanks for sharing, girlie! Happy Saturday :)

  12. It is my 10 year too! Although I haven't heard anything about it from anybody soooo..who knows! You look so similar. I remember my senior picture was terrible because I had a funky hair cut I hated. sigh. Too bad you can't make it!

    yay for new running shoes. I think the more colourful the more better =)

  13. I just came across your blog and I love it! You seem such a sweet person Laura.
    Would love if you checked out my blog sometime too so we can stay in touch!


  14. I had my 10 year last summer and I didn't get to make it either. I was pretty bummed, but the timing didn't work out for going back. I think 10 years is a big deal too. It seemed like not many people went to it though. Tons of people have moved away. I love the throwback senior year picture though. I think you look a lot like Jennifer Lawrence in the picture :)

  15. I've been eyeing that sweater on the Nordstrom site and now I may have to pull the trigger - so cute and looks really comfy! My 10 year HS reunion is coming up in two years and I'm really hoping I can make it! Time flies right?! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! :)
