High Five For Friday
by Katie P
Happy Friday, Folks! I’m off to spend the last day of the work week behind my trusty computer and will be spending my Friday evening at the Columbus Food Truck Fest. Hopefully, MG and I get to sample some delicious eats and won’t have to wait forever in line like we did last year! Ah well, let’s be positive, so it will be awesome, I’m sure of it!
On to my high five!
1.) My red Everlane tote bag. This bag has replaced all my other bags in the rotation because of it’s durability, and let’s face it, the pretty red color. I love tote bags for the functionality and that I’m able to schlep all my crap around in it and don’t have to rummage around for my stuff. The inner pocket is perfect as well, with space for my keys & cell phone. If you don’t already have one, go buy one! It’s $30 (wait, what?! Oh yeahhh) and much better made than anything you’d find at Forever 21/H&M/etc.
2.) Kate Spade iPad case. I have an original iPad, which is considered a dinosaur by Apple standards. It does all the same things as the other iPads incarnations, but sadly doesn’t have a camera. That’s not a big deal to me because it’s weird trying to take pictures with a small platter sized item. Hold on while I get this frisbee fired up! Anyways…I found a case at the Kate Spade Outlet and I’m in love. It keeps the iPad from getting mangled by my dog who has a weird habit of wanting to stand on it. He’s pushy and demanding, so I had to find a case to keep the goods from becoming a stepping stone.
3.) This video from the “Ask Amy” series for Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party. It’s a very honest approach to a young girl’s question about wearing makeup and having a Dad who says “no.” Wish I had this video when I was 14. I also wish I used a lighter hand at applying eyeliner. Would’ve avoided raccoon eyes in at least one middle school photo. Memories…
4.) Thursday night Zumba classes! I’m thinking on adding a Monday night class, it’s that enjoyable. Except any of the toning/lunging songs. Those are the best/worst thing ever.
5.) Summer Reading! Need a little literary pick-me-up? Need a new beach read?
Here’s this week’s suggestion: I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron. Her books are wonderful and can be devoured in one sitting, which is what I did with the aid of a cup of green tea. Sometimes you want to read a little bit, but don’t want to slog through an epic novel. This is the perfect one-sitting read.
