Randomness - Five on Friday/Friday Five

Image
Happy Friday!!!!!! Friday Favorites // Friday Favorites // Oh Hey Friday// 5 on Friday
I love participating in all of the Friday linkups and so I HAVE to give credit to an amazing blogger that I borrowed this collage from!!! I normally link up to each one individually and I saw this on her blog and "borrowed it". So, Jenn, you are amazing and I totally hope it's okay that I borrowed this collage from your blog post today! You rock!!!
So, let's get on with it!! This is the most random five on Friday and Friday Favorites EVER!! LOL!!!
ONE: The other night my furnace started blowing cold air AGAIN!! If you have been a reader for a while you know this happened about 2 years ago also and I was able to Google the issue and find a YouTube video to fix it HERE! LOL! No HVAC man's time was paid for and I saved myself about $300! So, apparently it was time to clean the gas sensor rod again!  Out came the sandpaper and it is again working great! Living alone forces you to eit…

Pgh Snowstorm - first one this Winter

Image
Hi bloggy friends!! 

Let me start off by saying that I hope everyone that is being hit by the horrible snow clipper up north is safe and doing well! We got hit in Pennsylvania Sunday night into Monday and will still get a few more inches before it is all said and done. I cannot complain at all though. "Knock on wood" - this has been the mildest Winter in a long time! Until now, we have hardly gotten any snow at all!

I am lucky enough to be allowed to work from home so I did not even attempt to get into the office on Monday. I just worked from home...well, actually the new boyfriend's home.

We knew a lot of snow was coming and were planning on watching the Hockey all stars game and the Football all stars games together on Sunday anyway so we just decided to be pro-active and get snowed in together at his house!! Together with lots of milk, eggs, toilet paper and giant pot of chicken chili! Great plan, right?!?

Here is the snow from his back patio around 10PM.

Five on Friday

Hi bloggy pals!!! I am so happy to join in with 5 on Friday!

Since becoming healthy, my food choices have changed so much!! No more pizza or fast food! If I am on a road trip (which I am a lot) I will run into a grocery store and get fruit rather than buying crap at a convenience store. Most of the things I eat are salads without dressing, fruits, veggies and clean foods. All that being said, I need snacks and quick foods at work! I tend to repeat things and eat the same thing time and time again until I am sick of it. Here are recent favorites...

1.  This is the healthy option of the Graze snack box! These are great for a quick snack at work. If you have not seen this check it out here. They send you a box of 4 snacks once a week or once a month for $6 each. If you use my reward code when you sign up, your first and fifth box will be free (code: ANNW9R1FP)!!! The snacks are so yummy and there is a regular box and a healthy box where all the snacks are under 150 calories! I get the heal…

I have made about five new friends from this link up already!!! LOVE THIS!!!!

 So, remember when I talked about my new "diversion"? Well is gets better everyday!!! It is so much fun to have someone to hang out with at the gym and ride there with and go to dinner with after!! This is awesomeness at it finest however I have had a realization! Apparently I am way better at watching what I am eating when I am unhappy. That is sad to say but since I have been happy and falling for this amazing guy...I am eating healthy …

Happy Tuesday Ya'll!!!
I am happy to report that my new and budding romance with my long time friend is going amazing!
M is definitely the man of my dreams! He is sweet, loving, thoughtful and so handsome!!! He is a total gentleman and I feel very respected and protected when I am with him!I am so thrilled that we decided to give this a second chance! We have started working out together and spending all kinds of time together at dinner and just hanging out - it is awesome! What a sweetie! I can not believe that I actually MAY have a Valentine for Valentines Day this year!!! So excited!

Starting today, I am getting my eating back on track too. I have let loose a little due to the fact that I am so happy right now (relationship awesomeness) - does that make sense to you? When I am sad and lonely I don't eat and when I am happy and content I eat...makes no sense to me but it is what it is! HA! Anyway, I have not gained but I have also not lost and that makes me angry!!! So back on …

I said last week that I was done with men and that has already changed! HA!

I am seeing a really great guy and I am loving every second I get to spend with him!  Also, he has decided to join my gym. He is picking me up after work to go shopping for workout clothes for him and then we are going to work out together tonight for the first time! I am so excited - I have not had a workout partner since college! I think this will be so much fun to get in shape together! I'll keep you posted after tonight!

I am actually up this week due to a weekend of comfort food (literally sausage gravy and biscuits, fried chicke…

Weekend Wrap-up

I am so excited to give you an update from my weekend!!! It was awesome, rejuvenating and soooooo much stinkin' fun!!!

But, before I do that I will give you an update of my Thursday night which was equally awesome, rejuvenating and fun! I am dating this adorable, sweet man again and it is awesome! He is such a great friend and is the most entertaining person and sweetest gentleman on the planet! Such a lucky girl! I was leaving for the weekend and it was so nice to meet up for dinner and get to see him before I left for the weekend.




 This is my morning on Friday! My friend, Laura, and I took a vacation day Friday so we could get off to an early start! The place we go for the weekend is Jackson's Mill and it is the boyhood home of Stonewall Jackson who was an important figure in the Civil War.  We were going to a weekend long fellowship conference and could not wait to leave! So much so that this happened!!!! I forgot my morning smoothie was on top of the car as we packed it and…
