Friday 5! (Randomy Randomness!)

Today's Friday 5 theme is FREE! (per the rules of the Friday 5 Link Up).

This means I can talk about anything I want to!

Don't worry, I will actually write something this week. (Last week my panties were in a twist about my car.)

So today I will talk about random stuff...


1. I DECIDED TO BUY A PIANO! The piano I am using now is my uncle's and it is so old and doesn't hold a tune very well anymore. I found some great leads on used pianos that are in mint condition, tuned, and offer free shipping within a certain mile radius. I am hoping to actually pull the trigger on this before I go back to work. 

2. Paul and I booked a quickie beach getaway! In mid August, we are heading to Cape May, NJ for a day and then Wildwood, NJ for a day. After I booked the hotel, I realized it coincides with our 8 year wedding anniversary! How perfect!

3. On Tuesday, I got to hang out with my work friends at a BBQ. I am so lucky to not just like, but LOVE the people I work with. Not everyone has that! We all respect and trust each other. I have their back and they have my back. They make me laugh and they are truly like family.

4. NEW EARRINGS! I got these at Kohl's the other day on a whim. They are Jennifer Lopez, originally $18 but on clearance for $5.20. We got 30% off, which took the grand total down to $3.64. I AM IN LOVE!!!!!


5. And just a few funnies/food for thought for this Friday!




Have a great Friday, friends!


Today, I'm linking up with the DC girls for Friday 5!

  1. I'm going to that area of the Jersey shore tomorrow! I have been going there with my family since I was 12. That will be a great anniversary getaway!
    When I was younger I BEGGED my parents for a piano because I wanted to take lessons. Eventually they agreed and got one, but of course my interest didnt last long. I took lessons for years because they have invested in the piano. We still have it in their basement and it hasn't been touched in almost 20 years!

  8. Wildwood!!! My childhood summers were spent on the boardwalk every year. I have the best memories of getting up super early and riding bikes with my parents up and down the boardwalk, and eating junk like pizza and waffle and ice cream sandwiches at night. My mom went up and visited with her cousin earlier this year and said it had changed a lot - we haven't been together since I was maybe 13 - but I would love to go back! Take a lot of pics!! I can't wait to see!

    1. That is so cool! I used to go there with my family too but it definitely wasn't a yearly thing, we hit up a couple different beaches. The one thing I remember is the AWESOME WATER PARK there. I think Paul and I are gonna go. I love water parks!!! :)

  9. I hope you do get a very nice piano. I played when I was young and the piano is still sitting in my parents house unplayed. We talk about selling it, but it looks so nice where it is.

    1. You know, I think pianos look beautiful in homes so I don't blame your parents for still having it despite it not being played.

  11. We spent the weekend in Cape May a few weeks ago - so cute! We stayed at Congress Hall and it was awesome!

  12. I love that ice cream picture! My current favorite is Ben and Jerry's Half Baked Frozen Yogurt. That's so neat that you're buying a piano (I don't know how to play) and that you booked the beach trip. We just booked a trip to Seattle as an end-of-summer getaway and are really excited. You definitely deserve a nice trip!

    Have a wonderful weekend!
