Hey everyone! It’s been another crazy week at the clinic. I’m happy to have survived with only one bubble bath filled with orange oil and self-pity. On a positive note, Chris and I celebrated our 6th dating anniversary this week. We can hardly believe it’s been 6 years since we went on that blind date at Cafe 4. Our wedding anniversary is in October but I still celebrate January 24th, 2012 as the day I unknowingly met my husband. What a journey! I could’t even begin to tell you all the changes that have occurred with our families since then. Marriages, divorces, big moves, new jobs, great loss, and all the BABIES. We are immeasurably blessed to call this life ours and we will face the future together with faith, hope, and love. Sorry if that sounds cheesy but I’m sentimental this week and that’s how I feel.

Without further adieu, let’s get into the Friday 5. Just remember that the titles in bold are hyperlinks. Enjoy!


Say whaaaaat?!? The King of SNL is returning this weekend to host what is sure to be an incredible episode. One of my favorite sketches is here where he and Cheri Oteri are the Spartan cheerleaders at a chess tournament. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve performed “the perfect cheer” for anyone who will listen. I’m crossing my fingers for a Spartan Cheerleader reprisal, “Celebrity Jeopardy”, and “the hot tub lov-ahs” with Rachel Dratch. The link above is Leslie Jones’ tribute to some of his most famous characters for the promo. You’ll love it!


Speaking of SNL, famous alum Jimmy Fallon had a water war with the drool-worthy Jason Momoa this week on The Tonight Show. The play the card game “War” and whoever wins gets to dump a pint of water on the losers head each round. It’s hilarious and Jason Momoa could literally sit there and say nothing and I’d watch it so…


I haven’t seen a hockey game in person in far too long. Going to a hockey game really is a great winter date in case anyone is looking for ideas. We’re either going to make a trip to Nashville soon to see the Preds or go to Knoxville and watch the Ice Bears. Ice Bears tickets are super affordable (which isn’t always the case with Preds games) so we’ll see. Either way, my husband got me hooked on this when we started dating and I need my fix. Now if only I could forget about the skate that went through his abdomen while he was playing I might consider letting my son suit up one day.


You may have seen these tees and sweatshirts on some of your favorite celebrities. You can buy pre-made designs or customize your own phrase. The sweatshirts are a bit pricey ($68-$78) but I’m dying to have one. I just haven’t decided what I want it to say. Some of the pre-made designs are cheeky as hell which I love like “Carb Dashian” and “Pizza Rolls Not Gender Roles”. I’m definitely going to break down and get one soon. The food and wine puns have me rolling and they have sequin options. Yes, please. If you can think of a phrase that would be perfect for me, let me know in the comments.


The 2018 Oscar nominations were announced this week and I’m so excited for this year’s show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Of course last year’s Oscars will go down in history as the night the Best Picture winner was announced, renounced, then re-announced. You can see the confusion unfold here. I’m hoping to see more of the nominated films and performances between now and March 4th including “Ladybird” and “I, Tonya”.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. It is supposed to reach the upper 50’s here tomorrow so Chris and I will have to make a concerted effort to get outside. Baby Joe will be thrilled. Anyone have any good plans? Let me know in the comments below.

Until next time,
