Top Five Friday : Long Weekend Edition

Summa, summa, summatiiiime.  I hope that song is now stuck in everyone's head, because I am in full on SUMMER MODE, just in time for Memorial Day weekend!  The weather has been so beautiful lately and I've been enjoying outdoor time as much as possible the past week.  I'm looking forward to a relaxing and chill long weekend while I plan out my next adventure!  Let me know what your plans are, and enjoy!

linking up with ErikaHeather, and Friday Five


Song

Everything Country!!
To me, country music is the perfect summertime music.  I love the messages of being outside and drinking a beer on the water (sounds like a perfect day to me!).  Some of my recent favorites are Zac Brown Band, Luke Bryan, and Florida Georgia Line.


Shows

 Westworld
Once again I am way behind the times, but I'm finally beginning my quest through the wild world that is Westworld.  I'm still early on and keep hearing that I will be SHOCKED by the ending, but I'm really enjoying it so far.  I have to admit that it's kind of giving me nightmares and making me question what's real and what's not.  That's normal, right?  As a bonus favorite- I've been loving listening to the Westworld podcast (by Shat On TV) to help explain some of the scenes and discuss random theories. Really entertaining and a perfect complement to the show.


Podcast

The Tennis Podcast
There are a number of tennis podcasts that I listen to, but this has emerged as my favorite.  For one, it's hosted by two Brits, so it's just fun to listen to.  Two- both of them have great personalities are are hilarious together.  And finally- the podcast is regularly updated (my main complaint with the other ones I listen to) so I know that after every tournament I'll get an update on what's going on in the world of tennis.  I'm especially excited to follow along during the French Open, because they typically do daily episodes to recap all the action! 


Random

French Open
Perfect lead-in to my next favorite- the French Open begins this weekend!  There are so many great matchups that I'm looking forward to, and this is sure to be a wild tournament.  Serena and Vika are both back on the women's side, and Maria is seeded for the first time at a Slam since her suspension.  On the men's side- will Sascha finally get some Slam success?  Will Rafa continue to dominate the clay?  Are Kyrgios, Djoker, and Stan fully healed?  I CAN'T WAIT!!


What are your plans this weekend?
Who do you pick to win the French Open??

  3. I'm so happy for a 3 day weekend. It's going to start off very emotional... family get togethers and services for my grandmother who just passed away. But on Sunday we are going to a friend's memorial day picnic/party so hopefully that will be some alleviation from everything else.

  4. I usually just listen to running podcasts. But I love tennis and played back in the day. This may be a nice change to listen to.
