Five on Friday

August 29, 2014
Happy Friday, everyone!!  I'll just go ahead and dive right into my five points.

1) Rachael and I talked and decided that this Monday would be the last week for our Weekly Wrap Up link up.  With her being in China, it's harder for her to access the internet, plus there's the whole time difference thing.  We wanted to thank everyone who linked up with us!  I know I found some great blogs through the link up such Becca's blog and Lora's.  Hopefully you can join us on Monday for our very last link up!

Ameliorer la Vie



Speaking of link ups, I'm excited about this new one called Create Your Own Adventure which is hosted by Steph @ Life According to Steph and two other gals.  Each month has a different theme, and the very first one is all about fitness goals.  I don't know about you, but I always have so much trouble in this area.  If I'm being held accountable, I definitely do better because it would be so embarrassing to link up next month saying, "Well, I exercised once and had cookies every day."  When I participated in a spending freeze with Steph, I was able to save so much that month.  (And...just noticed that I typed "shave" instead of "save."  Good thing I caught that!!) Click here and scroll down to #9 for more details about this link up!

2) I heard on the radio that there is a casting call for Magic Mike 2, which is set to be filmed in Savannah.  If I don't start working soon, maybe I can try out to be one of those women screaming in the crowd??  Hahaha.

3) Everyone is talking about fall, and I'm not feeling it at all.  Don't get me wrong, if I was living in Ohio, I'd be all about it.  After all, it's still my favorite season.  It's just that it has been 90 degrees here most days, so nothing about that temperature feels like fall to me.  I'm not even craving a pumpkin spice latte. Everett says the leaves usually start changing here in November, so in a month or two I'm sure I'll be more in the fall spirit, but for now I'm still enjoying summer weather and might even go swimming this week. :)

4) This is just a reminder that Nancy and I are hosting a journal swap and sign ups are still open.  I know that I've met some awesome bloggers through swaps.  So why not make a new friend and get a journal, too?  Click here to sign up!

5) I finally had a job interview this week.  Seriously, I do feel better about that...I was starting to feel sorry for myself and get all mopey about not getting call backs, and frankly, those feelings are just gross.  I hope all goes well! I honestly cannot wait to start working again.

Anyone have any exciting weekend plans?

good luck on the interview!!
it's totally been feeling like fall round here; this morning i woke up and drove to work in 13C temps!

So excited about the Journal Swap! I've been waiting for the perfect one to participate in and this is totally it! Good luck with the interview!

Pinky said...

Good luck with your interview :)!

I'd be willing to cohost a weekend linkup, if you wanted to start another one, with Rachel gone. I can't wait to read about her and her fabulous adventures in China!

Rebecca B. Bird said...

Good luck! I'm not really feeling fall-esque yet either. It's cooling down a bit here in NY, but it's still sort of hot. People are already talking about pumpkin lattes and candles and I'm not ready, ahhhh!

Courtney B said...

Crossing my fingers about your job interview!!
I am so with you! I don't know how people are baking pumpkin treats and decorating for Fall when it's still in the 90's! It doesn't cool down until the end of Sept- beginning of Oct... so that's when I'll get excited about it :)

Lora said...

Good luck with the job!
I'm glad you guys had the link up and am going to miss it! I'm glad I was able to discover your blog as well!

Becca Dorr said...

Omg if you get to be an extra on Magic Mike... That'll be an awesome blog post.

Lisa K said...

Thank you, I'm pretty sure I'll be hired once my background check goes through. Oh wow, 13C IS very fall-like. It was a 97F/36C here yesterday!

Lisa K said...

Awesome! We're glad to have you join in. My interview went well, thanks. :)

Lisa K said...

Thanks for the well wishes! Hmmm...I think I want to change it up, so I probably wouldn't want to co-host another weekend recap link up. If you're interested in hosting some other sort of link up maybe on a day of the week where there aren't a lot of link ups, I'd be game! If not and you do start a weekend recap link up, let me know and I will for sure link up from time to time. :)
I'm dying for Rachael to post, too!! I miss her in Blogland!

Lisa K said...

I'm 100% okay with not being ready because a later fall means a later "winter" and I do use the word winter loosely!

Lisa K said...

Thanks! I applied for something there's no reason I shouldn't get, and I'm 99% sure that they'll hire me after my background check comes back. :) And yeah, yesterday it was 97...I wanted an ice cream cone, not an apple cider, hahaha.

Lisa K said...

It was fun! I would maybe host another link up one day, but probably want to do something different and not a weekend recap one.

Lisa K said...

I was just joking about it to my friend and she keeps begging me to do it because she is obsessed with Joe Manganiello.

Neatly-Packaged said...

OMG filming for Magic Mike 2?! :o

Lisa K said...

Haha, I never even saw the first one.

Krystal R. said...

Yay for job interviews!!! Good luck! I know the feeling :)

Lisa K said...

Yay is right!! I was losing hope and starting to panic!!
