Five Things Friday

Happy Friday! It is not as exciting of a day for me today because I have to work tomorrow to make up for our office closing on Monday for snow. Happy snow day?

I was trying to think of some things that I am loving right now and realized that I could come up with things I will be loving in the future much easier. So as a twist on that this week, I present to you Five (future) Things Friday!

1. FitBloggin ’14

I am SO pumped to attend this convention in June.  I will be traveling to Savannah, GA to spend the weekend immersed in fitness and blogging, two of my favorite things. I’m sure that there will be plenty of food involved too, so that makes three.  For more information, click here.  I hope to see some of you there!

2. New Cookbooks

My most anticipated cookbook, The Oh She Glows cookbook, should be here this weekend.  I had a bit of a snafu with Amazon and decided to be passive aggressive on Twitter.  That’ll show them.  Well they contacted me and tried to help and I got scared and backed down.  They kindly took off my shipping charges since the book will be a little delayed.  So no more #amazon fail tweets.

I am also looking forward to The Blender Girl’s cookbook which is out next month and also preordered.  Hopefully I don’t have to take down Amazon again. I’ll do it I swear (no I won’t).

3. Lucky Leprechaun 5K

I like St. Patrick’s Day because I am Irish.  There’s no more drinking involved for me, but green is my favorite color and I just like it.  I wasn’t able to run my 20K I registered for last year because of an injury, so I was able to transfer the registration to this one.  Score.  Five are fewer Ks than 20, but with my IT band/knee stuff, I know I can safely finish this with no problem.  Plus I will wear this shirt:

You can’t really see the glitter, but boy is it there.  I also get to wear the shorts I’m wearing in the About picture. Yay green!

4. Movie at the Angelika Film Center

After that race Neil and I will head over to the Angelika Film Center to catch a movie with one of our friends.  I am so excited because I was first introduced to this place when we had our last blogger meetup.  Aside from the theater, there are a number of healthy eats and a cute coffee shop in the middle.  I can’t wait to explore!  That brings me to a related number five:

5. March Blogger Meetup

I learned so much and had so much fun at the last one that I can’t wait until the end of the month when we have another! I think this time it will be closer to my neck of the woods which is great.  I had such a good time! Oh, memories:

Well that’s it for this Friday. This weekend should be beautiful so get outside and do something good for yourself!

Question of the day: What are some of your favorite things right now? The future?

    I’m looking forward to that Oh She Glows cookbook as well. And some of my favorite things right now: visiting the Offscreen film festival and indulging in my love for cat photography. Have a lovely weekend.

    You’ll definitely have to let me know what you think of the Oh She Glows cookbook! I have a bit of a cookbook problem, so I’m trying to cut back and only buy ones that I REALLY need/will use. Mostly because I have no space to store them all anymore! So I definitely want to know whether this one is worth it! Also, yay for blogger meetups AND for FitBloggin!

      I had a cookbook problem too and would just end up not using them. I have never made something that is bad from the ohsheglows site, so I can guarantee that this is one to get. She still has so many recipes on her site too to supplement this. I would definitely invest!
