high five for friday

1. my sister and i had a very successful cyber monday sale at elisabeth ashlie. we love our customers!
2. the tree is up and decorated! and the garland is almost always slightly moved every time i take a closer look at it. i blame those two furry guys that live with me.
3. my relationship is finally facebook official…which obviously means that it’s serious. but, really. i have a boyfriend for the first time in years. i kinda like it.
4. milo & otis are almost always within arms reach of me. i think they like me. or being pet constantly. maybe both.
5. i showed my Duke love all day on wednesday and it paid off with a huge win against ohio state!

how was your week? link up below and tell me about it!

  11. EEEE! New relationship statuses always rock! Congrats!

    And kudos to you and your roomie for getting the tree up – I still have yet to do so. I am hoping this weekend (somewhere between the SEC Championship game, my birthday AND seeing The Who… maybe it will be next weekend… I am short on time).

    Thank you for informing me it's Friday! I seriously thought you were nuts when I saw your top 5 on my blog feed. I wondered why you were doing it so early in the week? Uh DUH. 🙂 SAHM of a 2 yr old. All my days run together.

    Congratulations on your new BF! I remember how exciting it was when I started my relationship with my now fiance! Those are some super exciting weeks, so be sure to fully embrace them! I suggest keeping a little journal to note your thoughts and experiences. And save ticket stubs! 🙂

    I think that what you posted was actually very logical.
    But, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome post title?
    I ain't suggesting your content isn't solid, but
    what if you added a post title that makes people want more?
    I mean "high five for friday" is kinda boring.
    You should look at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article titles to get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you've
    got to say. In my opinion, it could make your website a
    little livelier.

    Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
    make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
