1. HJ is adorable.  But you all know that.  I love when he says silly things without realizing it.  For example, he calls exclamation points “eskimo points”.  I haven’t corrected him yet, because I love him being little at times.

2. Today I randomly told a co-worker about a doll from my childhood, Lady Lovely Locks.  I swear my sister and I are the only ones who know about this doll.  I distinctly remember a road trip with her in tow.  A family friend had a boy about my age who just adored Lady Lovely Locks and her beautiful hair.  He is now a hair stylist, so I like to think I helped him find his calling.

3.Spring weather is amazing.  After being holed up in the house all winter, these beautiful warm days are really helping brighten my mood.  I love seeing HJ run around with the neighbor kids, and see how much fun he is having.  We even planted a blueberry bush, with hopes it won’t be eaten in a few weeks like our last one.

4.Have you guys seen the video where the couple doesn’t tell anyone they are pregnant with twins, and then they surpise everyone?  It is so cute.  Not gonna lie, it made me tear up.

5.I don’t know what it is lately, but I have really been missing Des Moines.  I feel like I would be much farther in my career if I had stayed there, and it is hard to struggle with it here.


4 Thoughts on “Five Things Friday

  1. I don’t think you’re the only one who thinks they’d be further along in their career. I’m in the same boat, but I’m in Des Moines. Accounting degree (and still paying for that) but my resume reads more of an assistant, which irks me because I know I’m better than that. I don’t mind what I do, but there are days when I wish I were doing something different – something creative. Sitting behind a desk is about as far from creative as you can get! Good thing I’ve got the house to work on, otherwise I’d be going insane!

  2. I completely understand the questioning where to live. My job ends next week and I can either find something else in my hometown, or I can move. If I moved I would probably go to Minneapolis, and while I might have a better job there, I like the lower stress and lower cost of living up north. I think you should look into your options. Maybe you can’t move right away, but maybe you’ll find something that works down the road.

  3. My daughter used to see them lobster tanks at grocery stores or restaurants and call them “monster-lobs.” She’s almost 15 and we still use that term. 🙂

  4. Yes, come to DSM!!! 🙂 Selfish plug here but I always welcome more friends that live close!
