My Fives

by Courtney on September 30, 2011

Over the past week or so, I’ve seen a fun little survey posted a few different times on Julie, Cait and Chelsey’s blogs. I’m also stealing the survey today because I could not, for the life of me, come up with a Fashion Friday post, and I thought that this would be a lot more fun.


So here we go…my Fives!

Last five people I talked to on the phone:

  1. My dad
  2. My mom
  3. Jay
  4. My pharmacy
  5. Sarah

Last Five Meals I Ate:

  1. Pumpkin bagel with pumpkin-peanut butter and banana slices
  2. Leftover stuffed spaghetti squash
  3. Veggies + hommus, yogurt + granola, a peach and a SOYJOY bar
  4. Same pumpkin bagel as above…again
  5. Apple Cider Cupcake and a chocolate covered date (not a meal, but it was tasty!)

Last five places I’ve traveled:

  1. Philadelphia, PA
  2. Wildwood, NJ
  3. Virginia Beach, VA
  4. Outer Banks, NC
  5. Baltimore, MD

Next five places I will go (outside of my hometown):

  1. Brian & Mal’s apartment
  2. A baking class(!)
  3. Our friends’ wedding
  4. A local winery for a super fun event (more info to come soon!)
  5. My friend Joelle’s Halloween party (<—so much fun!)

Last five workouts:

  1. Days 12, 11, 10, 9, and 8 of the 10lb. Slimdown Xtreme Challenge!

Five things making me happy right now:

  1. It’s Friday and I have no specific plans for tonight.
  2. Spending Saturday morning being lazy with my two favorite boys.
  3. I’ve completed two full chapters of studying this week (WOOP!)
  4. I’m going to be seeing some of my favorite people this weekend for some Sunday Football.
  5. Tomorrow is October 1st which means I can finally put out my Halloween decorations

Plus…one more added by me:

Five essential clothing items for fall:

  1. UGG boots
  2. North Face fleeces
  3. Bulky, cozy sweaters
  4. Skinny jeans for tucking into boots
  5. Scarves – LOTS of scarves!

Now it’s your turn!

Feel free to share ANY of your fives today! Smile

So I was all excited about the webinar last night. i had my banana ice cream all ready to go. At 8:55 I clicked on the website and for some reason IT WOULD NOT WORK! I downloaded Java and everything. I don’t know what happened. But I pretty please ask of you all to do another one soon so I can get in on this webinar stuff!

5 things I shouldn’t have eaten today:
1. the large spoonful of peanut butter and nutella after dinner (and a cookie)
2. a second very large spoonful of peanut butter and nutella
3. the extra helping of caramel popcorn (sample) at Costco (yep, I’m the little lady juggling 3 samples at once!)
4. the Oreo sample that caught my attention (across from the popcorn sample station) at Costco
5. the last bits of my boyfriend’s popcorn sample from Costco

yea, you better believe I was amped during that shopping trip..phew! I shouldn’t have eaten my weight in sweets, but I can’t say I regret it! Although I am craving some cold veggies now! :)
