Count 'Em...5!

Hi sweet people :)
It's that time of the week again...yes Friday!
Except I'm working today (I usually don't work Fridays) so I am REALLY ready for the weekend!

I'm excited for this weekend: Saturday I'm going mountain biking in the AM and then hanging out with the family in the PM to celebrate my Granddad's birthday! Sunday I'm going fishing with my brother and then spending time with my Dad...it's gonna be good!

But enough about the future, here are my 5 favorite things from this past week!
(Obviously I'm linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk for High Five for Friday!)

Good thing I'm not the only one in my apartment who isn't a morning person ;)
I just love my little nugget!

Adam & I went and saw a movie at the Cinebistro...the movie sucked but the experience was awesome! I honestly don't even remember which movie we saw...oops. But the food & drinks were off the chain (did I just say that? What's wrong with me?) If you've never been to a Cinebistro, let me explain. We sat in these HUGE leather chairs in the theatre and were served delicious food before the movie started. We got to finish our food during the movie. It was glorious. I'm never going to a regular movie theatre again, ever. Okay...I probably will, but whatever ;)

I ate banana batter pancakes while listening to the song Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson. I don't think you understand just how amused I was by this...:)

Sushi. Boyfriend. Boy best friend. All at the same time. BEST EVER.
It's always so hard to take good pictures in sushi restaurants...it's so dark in there!
Don't they know that us bloggers NEED good quality pictures?! ;)

I am so incredibly thankful for the success of the link up that Britt & I hosted yesterday.
"From Blog Life to Real Life" was a real hit - Britt is a genius for coming up with the idea!
If you haven't checked it out, you can here...trust me you will find A TON of new blogs to read!
You're welcome :)
