5 for Friday

This week has gone by soooo slowly. Am I the only one who thinks so?

I have a few ideas why.....

1.  I've been very excited about the Royal Wedding, unable to get my fill of predictions, documentaries, photos, and other craziness. Yes, today was a rest day for me, but I still woke up at 5:30am and quietly turned on the TV while Woody slept, to watch the Kate arrive and the happy couple wed. I really have no idea why I've been so intrigued by this whole thing, I just am. Some things just can't be explained. They look incredibly happy!

 2. I've been waiting and dreaming about today. My first day attempting to go crutch-less since I was presented with them two weeks ago. I'm going to take it slowly and be careful to not spend too much time on my feet and walking around. My leg is feeling really good and as much as I still believe crutches are completely annoying and frustrating, they were obviously what I needed. Two weeks ago, my leg ached almost constantly, now, not at all!! It's a good reminder that sometimes we just have to suck it up and deal with it if we want to get better!

3. Tomorrow is my birthday. The big 3-0. Yes, I admit it, I will no longer be a 20-something as of tomorrow. It really doesn't bother me, I've heard so many times that the 30's is a great decade, and to tell you the truth, I'm kind of excited about it. Now I just have to act like an adult. Since my original plan to run the Broadstreet Run in Philly on Sunday was scrapped, I made other plans: brunch with three amazing women then later dinner and a movie with Woody. What movie are we going to see? This one

4. Sunday is the first New Amsterdam Market of the year! I wrote about this market at the old Fulton Fish Market quite a bit last fall after we moved to FiDi and discovered this gem only a few blocks away! Unfortunately, this Sunday's market is their Floralia Celebration (celebration of Spring) and the weekly markets don't start until June 5th. But, it sounds like a good number of vendors will be selling their goods, and I can't wait to check check it out! Local is good.

5. This has nothing to do with why the week has gone so slowly, but I have to share it with you. A friend of mine posted THIS LINK on Facebook yesterday. Have you ever become really annoyed with someone on Facebook or Twitter who absolutely can not spell at all? Even if you haven't, you still need to check this out. I was reading it as I was waiting for a meeting to start and it was all I could do not to laugh out loud! Hilarious. (and a little disturbing, because it's all real)
  • Did you watch the Royal Wedding? I did!
  • Are you a birthday party person? I, most definitely, am not.
  • Have you heard of a way to make a donation to help the communities in the South devestated by the recent tornadoes? I haven't had a chance to look yet.

I have to admit, I was intrigued by the wedding this morning and watched before/after my run. How can you not??

Happy birthday!! Sounds like you have a great day planned - I'm not one for parties either. Low key stuff with friends is the best, enjoy :)

Have a great birthday and I hope the crutchless trial went well!

Happy birthday! I hope going crutch-less was a success.

Happy Birthday to YOU!! And I love your attitude about turning 30. I couldn't agree more. I turn 30 in a little under two years and I am actually excited about it. Nick turned thirty a couple years ago and wanted to die. I didn't understand, thirty is COOL! :)

And..thanks for introducing me to this movie. I HAVE TO SEE IT!! I hate marketing. Ugh. I just posted about it, actually.
