Five on Friday

So I'm doing this Five on Friday thing again but unfortunately I don't have any pictures to go along with my 5 thoughts for this week so maybe it'll be a little more boring lol  If you want to participate, just go to A. Liz Adventures and link up your blog.


One
We finally heard back from our CPA after 3 weeks.  I was shocked...amazed...speechless at the results.  Let's just say that God is SO good!  Not only do we not owe anything but we're getting back more than we've ever gotten back before. Crazy!  If you missed out on what I'm talking about.  We went to HR Block and at first we were getting back $1200 and then I got a call the next day that said they miss-figured things and that we would owe $1300.  So we went to a CPA to get a second opinion.  I am SO thankful we did!

Two
I found a new app for learning languages.  It's free and it's called Duolingo.  You can go to the website and work on it there too.  It works on phrases, spelling, verbal, etc.  You can work on multiple languages at once.  Right now, I'm working on French and Italian :)  I like to multi-task.

Three
Divergent! Next Friday! Woohoo!  I'm going to have to go ahead and remind myself that it's not going to be as good as the book but I hope they have done a good job.  I'm already not sure about the person they chose to be Tris but whatever lol Maybe she'll be a lot better than I think.

We are doing another photo shoot with our favorite photographers... Kristin Byrum Photography.  It's April 13 and we're going to drive down to Charleston for something different.  I'm really excited about it.  I have NO idea what I'm going to wear yet.  I don't want to do jeans but I really need a tan  lol

Five
Here are five random facts about me....
1) When I read a magazine, I start from the back page and work my way to the front.
2) Darren had a personality class at work.  We figured out that our personalities are pretty much opposite lol but we work :)  So according to Myers, I am INFJ (Introverted Intuition with Extroverted Feeling).  Darren is ESTJ (Extroverted Thinking with Introverted Sensing).  The descriptions are right on the money...kinda crazy.
3) I watch movies I own when that come on tv and even sit through the commercials but rarely watch the dvd.
4) I've lived in North Carolina my entire life and have never been to Biltmore.  I get to go on my 30th birthday this year thanks to some friends that I'm going to do some maternity pictures for while we're there.
5) Funny thing....I can't come up with a 5th one right now :)

Five on Friday

  Yes...I know it's Saturday but I've been wanting to participate in the Five on Friday link up that A. Liz Adventures does on her blog for a couple of weeks now but I just haven't gotten around to it.  So here we go :)  I believe the point of Five on Friday is to just make a list of your thoughts for the day or what you have going on.


ONE
To say I have baby fever is a mild mild understatement lol and it doesn't help that several of my friends are pregnant so I have to go into baby stores to buy baby gifts :)  Are these not too cute?!  I'm so tempted to just pick up a few things for myself but that's not exactly practical when I wouldn't know when I would be having a baby (seasons and all) or gender.  Oh well...it'll happen.


TWO
  I got a new planner :)  I was using my phone but I like to write things down and I lost all my contacts' addresses so I decided to go back to the old school way of life and get a pretty calendar.  Of course, I have to color code everything and it all just makes me happy lol  The planner itself is by Martha Stewart.  I got it from Staples.  I ordered the calendar pages from I Heart Organizing's Etsy store.


THREE
   I got to hangout with one of my best friends today.  I haven't seen her in over a year and now she lives over 2.5 hours away :(  Of course...eventually, that will be even further away but I won't think about that one.  I'm so thankful for Limary.  We've been good friends since college and although we don't see each other often, we can pick right up where we left off.  Those are the best friends to have.


FOUR
   I would really like to be any place like this.  I need a vacation.  A nice warm tropical vacation where I can relax and not think about anything.  Too bad that's not going to happen any time soon.


FIVE
  I saw Frozen today.  After all the hype I've seen on it on Facebook, when Limary and I decided to go see a movie, we figured, hey why not.  and I LOVED IT!  I'm quite certain I have a new favorite Disney movie.  Granted....I'm kind of a mess and cried in a couple parts but oh well :)  It was funny and sweet all in one.  I loved all the characters and how it has adult humor and kid humor.  I will definitely be buying this one! :)


Ciao!
