High Five for Friday!

Wow, is it really time for another week of H54F?! This one really did sneak up on me. It's been so crazy over here on the personal side of the blog, that I just don't know where my time is going!

Anywho, welcome to another week of High Five for Friday with Katie, Della, Tif and I! We're so glad you're here. 

If you missed out last night, check this link for a video of our fun hangout sesh! Hopefully you can make it next month :) And for those of you that were able to make it, thanks for spending you're evening with us. We always enjoy these get togethers so much, even if some of us were sleepy (ahem, me! lol) 

Our lovely featured blogger this week is Holly from While I Wait. She's definitely a girl after my own heart, trying out the Kon Mari method of cleaning. I've done a little bit of this, but I'm looking forward to diving head first into this method this weekend, and I love getting to see someone else's prospective on it. 

Now, for this week's five! 

1. As I mentioned above, we've got some pretty crazy amount of stuff going on over here on the personal side, and I  am hoping to get to share the details with you all in the next few weeks! In the meantime, I just thought I'd share that I've basically been diffusing/using Stress Away essential oil blend from Young Living on the daily and it has helped so. so. much. This little bottle right here has made me a complete believer of essential oils. Love it!

2. We got our first real snow here in central Ohio during the week. Juliet has been begging me to go play in the snow since last year we were unable to find snow boots in her size (she has itty bitty feet.) So this was her first time actually getting to play in the snow and she loved it! It was so much fun and totally worth it even though it took longer to bundle and unbundle than the time we were actually outside. 

3. Jay and I took a little getaway last weekend to Hocking Hills. It was definitely different than our trip to the castle this summer, and while it was nice, it definitely wasn't exactly my cup of tea. I did enjoy just getting to spend time one on one with my hubby, though! 

4. I've started doing yoga in the mornings a couple times a week, and so far I'm really enjoying it. I definitely need to work on my flexibility so it seems like a perfect fit. Plus it's such a nice way to start your day, I feel like it really gets me off on the right foot for the morning. 

5. I got sucked into Making a Murderer on Netflix. Has anyone else watched it?! I'm only a few episodes in since I don't want to watch it in front of Juliet, but man! I can't even believe this stuff is real life.

How was your week? I'd love to hear!
