Friday Five.

Friday, May 23, 2014

We made it, guys! It's Friday! Thank God. I'm ready for a nice 3-day weekend. It's really funny, because I never realized how special weekends were until several years ago when I started a full time job. I work in a Corporate office, and on Friday's, instead of people greeting you with " hey, how are you?", it's " hey, it's Friday!". Friday's are special.

Here are some highlights from my week:

{1} The guy in the cubicle next to me is talking on the phone about some online video game that he's been playing. It involves some sort of castle that you have to protect. It's really entertaining to listen to and super, SUPER nerdy. I just thought I'd share, because it's funny. The corporate world can be quite entertaining sometimes. 

{2} I haven't gotten Starbucks at all this week. This is a big deal for me. Rory was out of town in San Diego at a work conference, and so I gave him a Starbucks card so he would get coffee on me the whole time he was there. The things we do for our men...

{3} Yesterday I learned how incredibly expensive vacuum cleaners can be. I went home on my lunch break and just started noticing all the cat hair everywhere and got totally grossed out. My vacuum cleaner broke, and in my mind that's considered an emergency when you have a cat who sheds like crazy. I never thought I would ever be recommending a vacuum cleaner on my blog, but this one  is AMAZING and totally worth the money. You think your house is clean, then you use this vacuum cleaner and realize how much your previous one wasn't picking up. ew.

{4} This week I kicked butt in my workouts. I did 3 metcons this week, as well as worked on my bench press and shoulder press. Yesterday's workout kicked my butt. The WOD was 2-4-6-8-10-8-6-4-2 of Burpee's, squat's and push up's ( 2 burpee's 2 squat's, 2 push up's, then 4 burpee's, 4 squat's and 4 push up's, etc...). Needless to say, I'm incrediby sore today. Have you ever done a Burpee? If you have, then I'm sure you can feel my pain.

{5} Yesterday I was reading The Persuit of Holiness, and it was talking about our hearts when it comes to overcoming sin, or putting off sin. Are we purposing to put off sin because we know it's hurtful to God when we do, or are we putting it off for selfish reasons because we personally want to be able to have victory over sin to make us feel better about ourselves? I've never thought of that before! In our struggle against sin, are we wanting to be obedient for the sake of Christ, or for ourselves so we can get something out of it and/or look good to other people? Definitely something to ponder and pray about.

Have a great weekend, friends. I love you all!
