Top Five Friday : Tired of it

Can I start off this post on a whiney note?  I'm not usually one to complain about weather (at least in real life), but I am SO OVER WINTER.  This year seems to be more awful than most, and I'm so sick of it!  Not to mention that our car that has four wheel drive (which we specifically bought this year to be able to drive safely in the winter) broke down this week and needs a new engine.  To top it off, I've kept myself running inside because we got hit with yet another snow/ice storm.  BLAH.  I have to keep reminding myself that winter will eventually end, and that I'm lucky to have a warm place to live (and work) and just stop complaining.

Ok, rant over.  Let's get into happier topics, including something VERY exciting that starts today!  Any guesses?  Keep reading!

linking up with ErikaHeather, and Friday Five 



Song

Justin Timberlake - Man of the Woods

Definitely a clique pick for this week, but I love Justin's new CD!  While I wasn't super impressed with his half time show (the whole time I was just waiting for something exciting to happen!), this has been on repeat all week at work.  My favorite song is probably Morning Light (mostly because of Alicia Keys) and Young Man is just the sweetest song!


Podcast

The Podium
OK GUYS ALERT ALERT- THE OLYMPICS START TODAY (technically yesterday, but opening ceremonies are today so we're going with that)!!  I am SOOOO excited because Olympic time is the best time.  I was really excited to hear that NBC will be starting an official podcast where they will recap every. single. day. of Olympic action.  Does it get any better that that?  Nope, didn't think so!  Happy listening :)


Show

Face Off
One good thing about getting rid of Netflix was being able to find new and cool shows that I would normally never watch!  I recently discovered Face Off, which is a reality competition show all about special effects makeup.  It's so cool and interesting to watch the creative process that these artists put into creating characters.  I love it!  Luckily for me, there are tons of seasons already out, so I have lots of watching ahead of me. 


Random

Olympics!
Duh, I had to mention this again.  Today the Olympics officially kick off with the opening ceremony, and it's all systems go from there!  I'm excited for all of the events, but my favorite winter sports are figure skating, and all of the skiing and snowboarding events.  Can't wait to watch and follow along!  #GoTeamUSA!

Can I have some cheese with my w(h)ine?
Do you love or hate the Olympics?  Favorite sport?
What did you think of the Superbowl/Halftime Show?

  2. I didn't mind the Superbowl half time show. I was hoping he would bring back some old school NSYNC though.

  3. I like the Olympics, but don't crush on it like most people. There are a few events that I enjoy watching (bobsled, skiing, figure skating, speed skating), but a lot of the other stuff is just "filler" for me LOL

    1. I like it because it's a chance to see sports that I NEVER usually watch. Definitely don't love every sport, but I just love the diversity!

  5. We watched some of the mens team skating last night. The commentators were brutal -- especially the man!

  8. Are you watching Celebrity Big Brother!? I thought that would be on your list! :) So far there have been 3 episodes (I'm sure you could go back and watch them) and it is VERY GOOD. From a one BB fan to another... I highly recommend it!
