Friday Five

1. I think a double feature is in the cards this weekend. I really want to laugh my ass off at “Ride Along.” {I mean, is Kevin Hart really an adult? He cracks me up, but I just don’t understand how a grown man is that short!}

And I want to give the new Jack Ryan a try. He’s played by Chris Pine, so how bad can it be?

2. This week I tried Torque at Gold’s Gym for the first time {more about that in a future post!}. My biceps have been hurting for three days. Not just hurting, but I literally {I can actually use literally here and mean it} cannot stretch them out completely, fully extending them, without cringing and groaning. I ransacked my house last night for this sweet nectar, but alas, came up empty handed. Damn you, pull ups, bicep curls and rowing machine! Damn you!

3. I don’t have a lot of DIY projects going on for my wedding, but I feel like I should. Like, if I don’t do at least one DIY project, then I’m not really a bride. I mean, I am my own wedding coordinator — isn’t that enough? Thanks to Pinterest and websites like this one for making me feel so inadequate.

DIY on Cool project, but collecting teacups and making my own candles? Sure. I have time for that. Cool project, but collecting teacups and making my own candles? Sure. I have time for that.

4. Have you seen the new show on HBO, “True Detectives?” It’s really creepy. Like, so creepy I had to stay up after the show and watch something funny (reruns of “Martin” to the rescue!), just so I could sleep OK. The two main characters are played by Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Unfortuantley, Matthew looks like this for some of the show:

5. I ordered about 12,000 dresses from the Curve line at ASOS last week {y’all should check out their sales right now} and, apparently, had no idea what my size should actually be because they were all too large. Guess I’d rather have that problem than they’re all too small! This is the only one I kept and I have no idea where I’ll wear it, but it’s the first red dress I think I’ve ever owned that wasn’t a bridesmaid gown.

Cute with metallic or nude heels, no?

What are y’all up to this weekend?
