Top Five Friday #24
Happy Friday everyone!!I'm switching up my graphics today to get ready for the end of summer/beginning of fall. Fresh flowers just didn't seem appropriate anymore, so I did a little water-coloring in Paint! I hope you like it.
Today's topic from the Friday Five ladies is "5 Things I'll be Doing in 5 Years". I already have a post dedicated to that (my 30x30 list..check it out here!), so today I wanted to share 5 events that I'm looking forward to that are taking place within 5 years. Most of these I won't actually be able to attend, but if I find a few spare dollars lying around, I'm there!
2016 Summer / 2018 Winter Olympics
I am the biggest Olympic fan and get really excited when the Games start! I'm already starting a countdown to next years' Games (less than a year!!!). I would love the chance to see a few events, so maybe Pittsburgh will host it some year; otherwise, I need to do some traveling.
Star Wars Episode VII, VIII and IX
SeaWheeze Half MarathonJennifer because she is the main reason for my Lululemon obsession. Not only does she make me want to buy every article of clothing they offer, but now I want to run their annual half marathon! I'm hoping to register for the 2016 race, but it apparently sells out within minutes so let's just add this to my "future plans" list just in case!
Happiness Project Update
Gold Star of the WeekI'm not even sure if this will qualify as a gold star, but I kinda invented my own drink and I'm obsessed with it- drinking it non stop this week. I mix one scoop of Trader Joe's Spicy Chai Tea Latte mix with a cup of hot water, then pour in a splash of hazelnut creamer. It's amazing- all those delicious exotic flavors of the chai with the perfect amount of creaminess. I'm pretty obsessed and think you should all try it as well!
Demerit of the WeekI haven't been biking much recently. After my original excitement about having the bike (and trying to get over my fear of riding it) I've been neglecting it a bit in favor of running a lot. I need to start committing to riding a few miles every week before it gets too cold out! To my Pittsburghers out there, where is your favorite place to bike?
What is your "happiness gold star" of the week?
Is there any event you're looking forward to in the next few years?
Linking up with Mar, Cynthia and Court
as well as Heather and Clare!
