Five Things Friday #24

Two weeks in a row…posting three days a week!?  I finally feel like I’m getting back on track with my work/life/blog balance.  Now, I haven’t been working out as often…that often at all, but I’ve been doing my best to sit less at work and I’ve been eating a bit cleaner.  I’m heading in a good direction.  Plus, once we get Cooper I’ll be walking morning, noon and night so I’m not too worried ;) .  Until then, let’s get to another Five Things Friday post!

#1… Did I tell you I bought some weights?


They are great and weren’t too expensive.  I also bought them off Amazon Prime so I didn’t have to pay shipping.  WIN!  I got 5, 7 and 10 pounds which I’m very happy with.  They’re pretty good quality, too!

#2… I was featured on Healthy Living Blogs!

Friday Feature HLB

I totally fell off the face of the (reading blog) earth and missed this!  I just noticed it the other day.  Oh heyyyyy!  Thanks for the feature!

#3… I kind of already said this, but I love that I’m actually blogging again!  I really love to write and I’m back to a place where I don’t feel forced to write.  I think 3 days a week is going to be my thing.  You (might, maybe, hmmm I don’t like committing to things) be able to count on me popping in every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  BUT, in reality, my whole life will change in just 1 week when we bring home Cooper so let’s not count on anything too specific just yet.  Deal?

#4… You knew this was coming right?! ….We get to (virtually) pick out Cooper tomorrow!!!

#5… And this one was obvious, too…WE WILL BE DRIVING TO NC TO GET COOPER IN JUST 1 WEEK!!!

Vizsla Boy Puppy
This is the latest picture of one of the baby boys!  We are beyond excited!!!  It’s all we talk about.  Day in and day out.  Cooper. Cooper. Cooper.  Do you think Cooper will freak when he hears my blender?  Which puppy kindergarten class should we enroll him in?  Is he going to adjust to crate training in two days or two months?  What would Zara say?  <– Okay, this one needs explaining.  We found a blog called Zara the Vizsla which we have thoroughly been enjoying.  Anytime we have a puppy question we check out the posts from when Zara was a puppy to see if we can find the answer.  Thanks for all the help, Zara!

And there you have it :)  Now it’s your turn!
