5 Things Friday!

Hellllooooo there!

1. I’m getting in a little late night blogging session on Thursday in preparation for Friday. If you’re reading this then it must be Friday! (I always do my blogging between 9 and 11pm, I wonder what you do during that time????)

2. We just got home from seeing the new Star Wars movie. I forgot that Adam bought tickets way in advance, so once again my run got thwarted.

I picked him up on my way home from work and we headed straight to the cinema.


Honestly, I’m not complaining. It felt nice to relax and enjoy some entertainment. I know there will be plenty of running to go around this weekend!

I’m not a big Star Wars fan but I enjoyed the film. I thought all of the main characters were very likeable. Usually I fall asleep when Adam makes me go to a weeknight movie, but I stayed awake the whole time so that says something! ahaha

3. On Wednesday the advent calendar I bought a while back finally arrived. It was on back order for soooo long. Now Adam and I have a lot of delicious catching up to do :).


We really wanted to go all-in on the Christmas spirit this year, but instead have been all-in on the home renovating spirit. The day after Christmas we’re going straight to the store to stock up on decorations that are on sale so we can GO BIG next year!

For now we’ll just enjoy whats left of the advent calendar!

4. Yesterday afternoon my mom sent me this pic of her cat, Georgie.

I mean really, he’s living the life!

    This weekend, hubby and I are going to see the Star Wars movie! He’s so excited!

    We would’ve stayed up late to see a midnight showing last night… but I’m an early bird! It’s hard to keep my eyes open after 9 pm.

      I totally understand! I fell asleep on the couch last night after we got home 🙂 Enjoy the movie!!

    Doesn’t matter which movie, those dine in theatres are so comfortable that it’s hard to stay awake lol. The advent calendars are so fun. We have two, one for our son and one for our daughter. They love moving the little sock that indicates which day it is. We stay away from the sweets but that Cadbury one looks pretty good lol

      It’s so true! I was in heaven with my seat reclined all the way back 🙂

      I love Cadbury, and it’s a nice little dessert at the end of the night to look forward to with my cup of tea. I sound like an old lady haha!

    I can’t wait to see the new Star Wars movie. I’m going on Christmas Eve with my family. I kind of love Star Wars and was obsessed when I was a kid. Normally, I would have totally been there last night or tonight, but since it’s a Christmas tradition to go to the movies in my fam, I figured I’d waif for them.

    This weekend Frank and I are heading over to Kansas City for a museum exhibit on Pompeii. I’m super excited!

      That’s such a cute tradition! If you’re a Star Wars fan I think you’ll really like it. Adam loved it and everyone clapped at the end of the movie in our theater 🙂

      I bet that Pompeii exhibit will be awesome. Visiting Pompeii was definitely one of the awe inspiring experiences of my life!

    I don’t think we are seeing the Star Wars movie…now if it was Star Trek I am there!! I love the relaxing theater too 🙂
    That is exciting -your first Christmas in the new place!
    I hope i get some running in. I have been “resting” all week letting some aches go away. I am dying to get out there. We have a week of rain in the forecast though 🙁

      I hope those aches go away after a good night’s rest tonight!

      I enjoy Star Trek too! I never watched the shows but I think the movies are really good! 🙂

    Has everybody seen Star Wars already? man! I’m the last one to see it this year!

    Cadbury advent calendar!! That is way cool!! We have one from a local Chocolate store, my son and fiancé take turns eating the chocolates.

    I love your sparkly flats!

    Have an awesome weekend!

      Mmmmm i bet your local store makes the best advent calendar!

      Thank you, I love my sparkly flats too. I have them in gold and in silver and wear them ALL THE TIME haha! Have a great weekend!

    That is so exciting you are hosting Christmas Eve dinner!!!!!!!!! 🙂 Take lots of pics.

    Speaking of pics… I love your gold shoes you wore to the cinema! Do you always wear them to the cinema or is that a recycled picture?

    You are either annoyed right now or impressed with my attention to detail!

    • Kristina

      Yes, I always wear them to the cinema because I always wear them every single day of my life haha! Literally I love them so much. I have them in silver and gold, and wear them with dresses, skirts, jeans… everything!

      Not a recycled pic at all. When we went to see Fantastic Beasts I was wearing them but with black jeans and last night I had blue jeans… and today I am wearing the silver pair with a dress. Tomorrow I will probably wear them again LOL!

    Im ready for the weekend too and SO glad its Friday evening! And I am always asleep by 9pm:)

    Matt and I are excited for the new Star Wars movie but it annoys me that it’s totally unrelated to the others and doesn’t have any of the new characters. I feel like they’re going to get so convoluted with the storyline that I won’t remember anything of importance when they finally converge. But that means I’ll just have to rewatch them all again, right? That’s probably what they’re banking on!

    Staying awake for the whole movie is always a big win in my book too. We watched Polar Express last night and it was my husband that feel asleep, but it’s usually me that does that! That’s exciting that you are hosting a party in your house already. Woot! You are superwoman (and superman). It will be fun to show off the new place. Good luck!
