Friday Five 5.19.17

Happy Friday!!

How are you today? how was your week?

I'm joining the Friday 5 Link up with  Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness. Today's theme is fashion, but I have no fashion sense. I wear black 95% of my life, and that makes me happy.



Today I'm brining you 5 Random things that held me together this week.

1. Crosswalk Musical- I loved Beauty and The Beast, and I laughed so hard at this remake from James Corden's Lale Late Show.




2. Lip-synch Battle- I have gotten completely caught up and lost watching this show on YouTube, and this is my most recent favorite.

 
3. The Kennett Run- This is our annual family run! I made an insane decision back in April to beat my Kennett 5K run time this year. I haven't raced a 5K since December, and getting pretty nervous now. Time to beat is 25:58, but with the new course, I am not sure how to count it as.
 
 
4. Marathon Woman by Kathrin Switzer - I have been reading this book any chance I get, because it is so great! I have read other great books about runners, but this one is written beautifully! I will write a review and join Wendy's book club link up... probably next week.


5. Show Me How To Live- Yesterday I woke up to the news of the sad passing of Chris Cornell. This song was part of my college life soundtrack, and I was very sad to hear of his suicide. Yesterday I listened to this song on  my way home, and basked in the pain of his words and the pain in his voice. Gone too soon.

 


I know this was a mix of happy, silly, sad and confused post, but that is just how life is! right?

  1. I've had Audioslave and Soundgarden on my running playlists over the years. Just since he died, I've been hearing a haunting version of "Nothing Compares 2 U" on the radio. What a great talent.

  3. Paul was very sad to hear of Chris Cornell's passing! :( You look awesome in black so it is a good fashion choice. And you always have trendy sunglasses!

    I didn't plan very well because I was busy last week. Maybe I will do fashion next week!

    1. Is Paul a Cornell Fan? Back in 2007 I wanted to go see him in concert in NYC, my ex-husband was a huge fan of his, but we didn't get tickets because he didn't want to go to NYC. I'm mad that I didn't go on my own.

      Oh! I can't wait for your fashion post!

    1. Thanks for watching the Video Meranda! he was very popular in the 90s with Soundgarden and in the 2000s with Audioslave, later on the 2000s on his own. Did you ever watch the Bond Movie Casino Royale? He did the song for the movie.
