Friday Five 7/22

friday five blog

HAPPY FRIDAY! I am extra excited on this Friday because it’s my last day of work until August. I’m leaving on a vacation to Chincoteague, VA with my mom & my best friend. I can’t wait to relax, spend some quality time with family, & soak up the sun.

Today I am linking up with Mar, Cynthia, & Courtney for Friday Five. Most recent Pinterest finds edition πŸ™‚

Who else loves Pinterest? Whenever I’m bored, I endlessly scroll & pin my favorite quotes, pictures, & fashion finds.. it’s a great way to pass the time. Follow me here! Here are 5 of my most recent favorites that I’ve pinned to my boards..

1 – I feel like I struggle with this on a regular basis. Also, why would I even want to straighten my hair if I’m just going to ruin it with sweat & later a shower by the end of the day? #firstworldprobs


2 – The weather has been so hot & humid here lately (and apparently only going to get worse) so I’m always interested in finding healthy recipes that aren’t so heavy. I pinned this “25 Healthy Cucumber Salads to Keep You Cool” & I got a lot of good ideas.


3 – Because, obviously.



4 – Ryan Gosling, you are so right. Dunkin Donuts coffee = love. And I always want to live in leggings.



5 – I love this. A while ago, I noticed a lot of people getting a semi-colon as a tattoo. It’s a symbol that means there’s more. There’s more to the story. I know two people personally that have this tattoo & I’ve always thought about getting it to symbolize my struggle with anxiety & depression. Life does get better. There is more to your story. This isn’t over. It’s amazing how a little punctuation mark can mean so much.



All – I hope you enjoyed my Friday Five today! Fall half marathon training starts tomorrow, so please stick around for my weekly training updates! Very excited to get back into a routine with good friends.

    Enjoy your vacation. Those cucumber salad sounds very refreshing for a summer day. It has been very hot and humid here too. Hope it cools off a bit so I can start doing my regulars runs again. But I do not think I am going to be that lucky.

      Thank you Lacey! My runs haven’t been happening because of the awful heat.. But unfortunately training starts tomorrow so I don’t have a choice. Good luck to you!!

    cucumber is just such a summer necessity, isn’t it?? totally with you on the hair thing — i literally blow dry sweat out of my hair after running instead of washing it. whoops. πŸ™‚

      YES! It really is. Cucumber anything.. even in my drinks! And that’s a good idea about the blow drying the sweat… I might try that πŸ˜‰
