5 Things in My Day

Happy Friday!
Today I'm linking up with Mar, Courtney, and Cynthia for the Friday Five Linkup.
The theme is 5 Things in My Day.

1. Today was a good mail day!
I recently won some Kind bars from the lovely Michelle. I cannot tell you how much I love these bars! I don't think I've had one flavor I didn't like. My favorite is probably the Caramel Almond and Sea Salt, but they're all amazing.

2. I also received my new shoes from JustFab. I want every single pair of shoes they sell. They are so hot! I don't have a lot of heels, simply because I'm already almost 6' tall. When I wear heels I tower over everyone! But I still love them. Now I need to find a place to wear them...
 3. Tonight my church is starting a marriage class. Jeremy and I are facilitating it.
 Isn't it ironic...don't you think, just a little too ironic. (Singing Alanis's song as I typed that)
That's like me teaching a childbirth class. Ha!
But, I guess it's those who have been through hell, screwed up, been forgiven, and have the most messed up lives, who have the best stories. #redemption

4. EVERY time I make potato soup, I accidentally mash the potatoes, as if I'm making mashed potatoes. Seriously, every time! You would think I would remember, but nope.
Mashed potato soup, anyone?
Needless to say, it went down the drain. :(
I should probably stop trying to make potato soup.

5. I just signed up for the Railway 10 miler, in Nicholasville (on March 21). I did it last year, and loved it!
Of course it may be because they have free My Ole Kentucky Home Dinner Train homemade ice cream. I can't usually eat right after a race, but y'all know I can eat ice cream anytime at all.

Tell me one thing about your day!



  1. I love Kind bars too! And those heels are super hot. Love them! Have a great weekend!

  2. Nice shoes. Did you try the soup... it might have tasted good? Great on that 10 mile run. I'd like to run a 10 miler someday.

    1. Thanks! I did try it, it just tasted like soupy mashed potatoes. The flavor was good, but the consistency was totally wrong!

  3. I love a good potato soup but wouldn't dare attempt to try & make it.

  4. Those shoes are seriously HOT! Kind Bars are yummy, I would have to agree. Good luck with the class! I'm sure you will have lots on personal insights you can share. And that's a good thing right? Gosh one thing today .. I'm just glad it's Friday.

  5. Wow! Congrats on the KIND bars; I love those things! And those shoes...girrrrrl! Watch out! :) I hope you have a great weekend and good luck with the class; I think it's absolutely wonderful that you and Jeremy are sharing your experience with others.

  6. Free ice cream after a race..Yum! I bet that will be so refreshing. Those are quite the shoes. I would have a hard time finding where to wear them to as well. -L

    1. I love ice cream after a race! Those shoes may never see the light of day, but they were too cute to pass up!

  7. love kind bars. i hope your marriage class goes well - i think you are right -- those who've been through the fire are often the best teachers!

  8. Those shoes are amazing! You are probably perfect for teaching a marriage class! You know how hard it really can be!

  9. KIND bars are great. That ten miler sounds fun, so nice that they serve ice cream.

  10. Those heels are so sexy! and I am in the same boat, almost 6'0 already so with heels I am the tallest in the room.

    1. Oh, that's right. So you know exactly what that's like!
