Five on a Friday 8.18.17

Happy Friday! I swear this week was so long but so short at the same time! Regardless I am SO looking forward to the weekend!


We have a new family member – Alexa! Hahah. I got an Amazon Echo and it’s been set up in our house for about a week or so. Sadie loves to have Alexa tell her jokes and play songs from Frozen. She also decided one day that Alexa needed a face!

A benefit of living so close to the beach is that we can decide on a whim to go and enjoy what we call Night Beach! We load up with chairs, cheese, wine, snacky foods and toys for Sadie and head over to the bay. The sunsets are amazing.

Who is this girl and how did I (and Dave) create such a gorgeous creature? She seriously gets stopped everywhere we go. I have thought about sending her pictures to an agency but honestly with working full time being able to run to castings and stuff just isn’t an option. There is one local agency I may try, we’ll see.

Last weekend the weather was so nice so I took my book outside and hung out on the deck for a few hours. I actually took a nap out there too! It was glorious and the perfect way to spend a weekend afternoon.

Dave and I totally watched the leaked episode of Game of Thrones. SO GOOD. Yes, we have to wait another week for the next episode but I don’t care.


Happy weekend!
