Five on Friday...Happy Friday!

So I’ve been stalking all the link-ups that I can find, and decided that the Five on Friday one is my favorite! The week can be so hectic sometimes that Friday is also the best day to have time to write :) So here is my first link-up with the Good Life blog!

On that note…HAPPY FRIDAY! Yay! I could not be more excited for this weekend just to relax and get some work done. Here are some exciting things that happened this week.


The Daily Positive. I stumbled across this website this week and I love it! You enter your email and every morning you are sent a positive thought/article. It’s a great little boost of inspiration for your morning! Plus, I just love any happy articles, and especially ones that have lists (e.g. today’s email “46 Positive Truths Everyone Needs to Hear”). Any article that has a list format- i'm all over it!


I finished my first week of clinic! Woo hoo! For my speech pathology graduate program we get our own clients for the first 3 semesters. We are in a clinic room that has double sided windows and our supervisor, the client’s parent or spouse, and undergrad students all observe you through it- kind of intimidating! But I have 3 clients who are 3, 5, and 7 and I am OBSESSED with them all! It was an exhausting week and I am soo glad that it’s over! This is probably boring news to everyone, but quite exciting for me! :)


My new nail polish and rings! The nail polish is Revlon Eclectic, and was less than $4 at Target. I got the rings on etsy (here) for 6.99 plus shipping. I have already reapplied the polish because I love it so much and have been wearing the rings every day. I feel like my hands actually look cute for once!



This week I cleaned out my phone pictures. I don’t know about you, but I am constantly snapping screen shots and taking pictures of things that I need to remember. Then I’ll scroll back a month later and random pictures of like, someone’s Instagram page that I wanted to go back and look at or an appointment reminder that I had to send to a friend. For someone who is a minimalist, I cannot staaaand clutter. So its This can apply to other aspects of life as well. Have an overflowing junk drawer- clean it out! A stuffed closet? Clean it! You will feel so much better. Remember, the most important things in life aren’t things. Here’s a quote that I really like concerning clutter and “things.”



Oceans (Where Feet May Fall) by Hillsong United. This song. I love it. We have always sang it at church, but this week I’ve been listening to it over and over at home, at work, and in the car- I just think the lyrics are so beautiful! Listen to it here 

Have a great weekend everyone!
