Five Things Friday [#2]

It's finally Friday again! Woohoo!!!  This Friday I'm linking up with the fabulous Erika again for "Five Things Friday."  I'm listing five great things about my week in an effort to focus on the positive instead of dwelling on the negative.  It's amazing how pointing out five good things can completely change your outlook.  I think everyone should try it! :)

1.  My creative slump has passed!  (At least for now, anyway...)  I have had a productive week-- picking up on my coffee table project again, creating some new paintings, working on a baby quilt for a friend, and crocheting... not to mention a 4th of July themed project to be revealed at a later date. :)

2.  I've gotten back into hitting the gym in full force.  After slacking (skipping a day or two more per week for a little bit), I've been going full speed ahead and working hard.  Nice long, fast runs, lots of stairs, weights, and fun Spin classes to name a few.  I feel more like myself than I have in a while, and I like it!

3.  I am no longer a ghost!  Since I was a bum last week and did a lot of laying by the pool and reading, I have a bit of a tan once again.  I think the Vitamin D has helped my mood, as well.  It's a win-win. :)

4.  I have two sweet pups to keep me company and make my house not feel so empty.  Weeks of hearing zip, zero, zilch from your other half can start to take its toll, and you start feeling pretty lonesome.  Luckily, I am greeted like a celebrity every time I walk in my door.  If I didn't have that, I'm afraid I would be super depressed.  Thank goodness for these guys.

5.  I had some Etsy orders this week that kept my motivation going.  Plus, one of the recipients sent me a picture of her little girl beaming and holding her new painting.  It absolutely made my day!!! (And my week!)

Hope everyone else had a wonderful week!


  1. This was great to read. Do I recognize that bikini top as one from VS? LOL. You are a beautiful woman, inside and out, and I am so happy that you have all of these blessings in your life. You deserve them. Thank you for all the things you share with us on your blog. I hope you have five wonderful things happen to you today, Lindsay!! HUGS to you.

  2. It sounds like a great week! =)


I love getting your comments! Put a smile on my face and show me some love. :-)
