Five Things Friday Vol.6

Five Things Friday: just five things I’m thinking about or things that made my week, or things that I otherwise feel like sharing.

Well, I thought about posting a lot this week, but the writing part didn’t happen, so I am pledging to write some more over the weekend and finally get a few more “new year’s posts” up next week before January is already over.

I skipped the gym yesterday morning because I either slept through my alarm or turned it off and instantly fell back asleep (probably the later), but I don’t have any recollection of it. Does that ever happen to you? This rarely happens to me and I am surprised, because I was in bed by 9 pm. I guess, my body needed the sleep. I woke up at 6:30 am, startled by the garbage truck outside, and only had time to jump out of bed, get ready and head to work.

One of our favorite restaurants has a “50 cent wing Monday” and it’s really hard not to go there every Monday for wings. Haha. It’s such a good deal and the wings are delicious! We got a gift card for Christmas, so that gave us an easy excuse to go last week!

I am happy to report that I am actually busy again at work. This week flew by (granted, it was a short week for me with Monday being a holiday) and at the end of the day, I often felt like I needed an extra few hours to get a few more things done. I prefer that over twiddling my thumbs hoping for the clock to hit 6 pm.

Highlight of my week: I scored tickets for the Pearl Jam Tour this spring. Hell yeah! If you know me, you know that I am a huge Pearl Jam fan (name that song in my blog title!) and if you know Pearl Jam, then you know they rarely go on tour and the tickets are always sold within minutes! 


  1. So happy you scored the tickets and work picked up!

  2. I’m glad work has gotten busier for you! It must feel good to wish for more hours in the day after so many months of twiddling your thumbs! Yay!

    Also, three cheers for scoring tix to Pearl Jam. That will be a fun event for you!

  3. Have fun at the concert. Looks like you needed a lot of sleep that one day.

  4. 50 cent wing Monday sounds amazing! I would be there every week if possible, lol

  5. 50 cent wings sounds amazing! I’d be all over that deal, too. Especially if I had a gift card! I’m like you and rarely sleep through an alarm or turn it off without remembering. I can’t remember the last time that happened. But that goes to show that your body was super tired. I really don’t need an alarm anymore because Paul is such an early riser, but I still set one on my fitbit. I pretty being woken by my watch vibrating than a beeping sound, though. It’s a little bit less startling and a bit more of a gentle wake up?

    The way you feel about Pearl Jam is how I feel about Brandi Carlile. I get to see her when she’s in Minneapolis in February. I’ve been a fan of her since her early days so am glad that the rest of the world has caught on to her talent (she won a bunch of grammy’s last year!). But that makes getting tickets to her show even harder. She’s doing 3 shows in Minneapolis in Feb at a new venue that is opening up. Should be an awesome experience!

  6. I have to get out of bed to turn off my alarm, so I can’t ever accidentally turn it off or really even hit snooze. lol It sounds like you needed the rest though! Yay for getting tickets to Pearl Jam. I love seeing my favorite artists live.
