High 5 4 Friday!

Goodness gracious it has been a crazy crazy day so far in the life of this nanny!

I didn't have to come into work until 9 rather than my normal 8 which was fantastic and luckily they caught me 5 minutes before I was about to leave. I am one of those people though that when I am up, I am up and there is no going back to sleep. So I figured I would get in a run. I did my week three day one of it was nervous because I have never gotten that far before but did so good and probably could have run a little more. It is a shorter workout this week so it threw me off when I only did 1.68 miles but I only did 27 minutes rather then my 36 last week. I know in the end it will all pay off!

I am running my April 5K tomorrow morning, just have to find and pick one, but I will update when I complete it. I also plan on going up to the North Georgia Mountains, particularly Helen tomorrow just for a change of scenery and because I can ha!

Anyways here are my 5 pictures of the week for High Five for Friday over at Lauren Elizabeth.

1. Yummy, yummy fried pickles (yes I know not the best choice, but sometimes you just have to) at my favorite restaurant here in Atlanta. I could eat a whole thing by  myself and I use to but now I share with people at the table which is great accountability.

2. My April Cara box came in on Monday from Krystal over at My Life of Travels and Adventures (thank you so much!) and the theme was Go Green! Everything in my box was fantastic and I loved every bit! I am writing a post about it and will be posting it soon to link over with the rest of the boxes at Wiffesionals.

3. Monday night I hung out with my roommate and another friend who both happen to be dating roommates and friends, confusing I know. Anyways the guys were out having "guy night" we had girl night and went to Moes for Moes Mondays and then went to Petland to snuggle and hold precious puppies...I didn't want to let him go!

4. I did this chart for my kiddos and did a whole post about re-doing our bathroom to make it easier for the kids to be more independent when it comes to brushing their teeth. It has worked wonders and the kids love it. It is much cleaner and we all appreciate that. You can read the post here.

5. If you read my Weigh In Wednesday post you know that I struggled the month of April in terms of weight loss and life in general. Well on Wednesday night I stopped by Trader Joe's to drop off something to a friend who works their and decided to get myself some flowers as a reminder that everything is going to be ok, and that I can lose this weight. They have been fantastic to look at in my house and I have done way better this week so far!

That's it for this week, May is upon us and that brings vacations and birthdays and getting ready for summer for this nanny.




  1. Awe! We stopped by a puppy store the other day and they ARE just so cute. Wish they stayed like that forever. Love the teeth chart!

  2. I love fried pickles too! What restaurant are those from? I am working on my Cara Box post and I can't wait for you to see it! Thanks again! =)
