Friday Five 2.24.17

Happy Friday! How are you today? This weeks has been super busy!

I'm joining the Friday 5 Link up with  Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness.





I'm bringing you 5 Random things I loved this week.

1. My son stayed home sick on Wednesday, we spent the day cuddling in the couch and watching Chopped. He loves watching Chopped and Cooks Vs. Cons.

It sucked that he was sick, but quality time with him on random days always makes me happy.


2. Hidden Figures- We went to see this over the weekend, and it was amazing! if you haven't see it yet, make sure you check it out.




3. Helping out- Last Monday, our office was closed to participants, and we helped out Dress for Success to set up their sale. We set up their temporary store in 3 hours! all the work my co-workers did was amazing! After helping out with unloading the truck, I snuck out for a pretzel, because I was super hungry... but I was there emotionally!


4. This amazing post from Suzy- Check Out and Stay In. Suzy has a great way with words, and this post was exactly what I was thinking and feeling during my last long run.

5.  Memories of my grandfather- My grandfather passed away 10 years ago this month. He was a great human being, very philosophical, smart and kind. AND he was in a Mexican movie back in 1977. It's not very clear, but he is the guy waay in the background of the picture, talking to a woman. He got paid to be on the movie as an extra. This movie was filmed in my hometown in Mexico, and the building where they are standing is now a bank.

  1. I have heard from several people that the Hidden Figures is a great movie! I will have to rent it when it comes to the Redbox. Hope you son is feeling better. I used to watch the show Chopped all the time. The meals they come up with is quite impressive!

    1. It is a great movie! Some sad parts, but amazing. I am showing it to my son when it's out on DVD, he is studying the civil rights movement right now in school.

      He is feeling better, thank you for asking!

  3. I hope your boy is feeling better. I do love an unexpected day at home with Paul and the kitties. I have not seen a movie in the theater in so long. I feel like I don't have the attention span. Happy Friday! Running anywhere beautiful this weekend?

  6. I keep hearing that I need to stop what I'm doing and see Hidden Figures NOW. I really can't wait; I'm hoping to see it next weekend! We never go to the theatre because it's so pricey these days, and I want to see Beauty and the Beast when it comes out, but I think I'll spend the extra money to see this one, too.
