    2017, are you listening?

    It’s Friday, so here are five things. What better time than just past the middle of February to make a list of things I’d like to see in 2017? These aren’t resolutions, so it’s fine. Right? 2017 – I’m going to need a few things. You listening? A new “We Didn’t Start the Fire” – I  was watching Billy Joel’s WDSTF video and thinking back to when I heard it live at Madison Square Garden. It’s one of my favorites from Bill. With all that’s going on these days and all that’s gone on since the original came out, I think it’s time for BJ to update and re-record this…

    friday five + a (mini) rant!

    It’s Friday – #thankgod. I haven’t done a Friday Five in a while because I haven’t liked anything enough if we’re being honest here. I’m going to try to throw a few things together because, well, it’s Friday and I feel like it’s the right thing to do. Let’s get into it, shall we? Mindy is back in April. The 12th, to be exact. Finally! It’s been long enough, no? Who’s ready for my obsessive re-caps? Because I’m for sure ready to write them. 2. It’s been a week since the Grammy’s, but I have to say that I cannot get enough of the performances. Specifically, the Carrie Underwood/Sam Hunt one…

    a very british friday five!

    GUUUUYYYSSSS- I had so much to write about this Friday. HAD. I forgot it all. I need to start writing things down. I’m going to try to dig deep into my Swiss cheese brain and put together everything I’m loving this week. One Direction’s latest album came out a week ago. They all sound amazing but Harry and Liam slayyy on this album. There’s been rumors that this is their answer to Taylor’s 1989. And, no, I wasn’t the one who started them. Honestly, I give the people who think of/notice these things a ton of credit. Where do you find the time? Don’t get me wrong – I looove…

    Friday Five: movie night!

    Happy Friday, friends! As I’m sure everyone is well aware, it’s getting colder out. And what goes with cold weather, besides snuggling by a warm fire because that’s hard to do by yourself. Movies. So today I’m here to talk about four movies that I’m excited for. Four? Martina, this is a Friday FIVE post. Idiot. I know, I know. I have something else to talk about for number five. Chill.  Love the Coopers (November 13, or today) – I love a good Diane Keaton movie. Because I Said So, The First Wives Club, The Godfather. Big fan. This movie is about a family that comes together for their annual…

    Mindy, Etsy and Taylor Swift

    How come during the week Friday seems like it will never get here and then it comes and it’s like “woah, Friday already?” Maybe its just me. My work schedule sucks. Anyway, I haven’t done a Friday Five Favorites whatever in a while so I figured, even though nothing I have to say goes with each other, why not? I’ll make it work. Guys, it’s September. You know what that means? MINDY COMES BACK THIS MONTH! And Hulu is now offering a no commercial option. All is right with the world. Also, full disclosure, I chose this picture because I love Mindy’s lipstick color. Now that that’s out in the open… before…

    Currently Friday

    Ahhh… Friday. Welcome back, friend. It’s been a long week full of moments that made me want to pull my hair out and weather that (finally) didn’t. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to do a Friday five or a Currently post so I’m going to mash them up. So, like a Currently Friday. am i brilliant or what? I think I’ve mentioned that I love a good Canadian teen drama. And if I haven’t, I love a good Canadian teen drama. Ready or Not (which I’m patiently waiting for to come to Netflix or Hulu), Degrassi – I’m all aboot them. I stopped watching Degrassi after the “Degrassi Does New York”…

    Late (as usual) Friday Five!

    We made it through another week! Let’s keep the good times rolling and get right into my Friday Five, shall we? I like to change my phone case every couple of months and it’s getting to that time so I was on the hunt for a new one. Somehow I stumbled across this one and I need it. Like, right now. Did you ever? I would have bought it right then and there but I refuse to spend $25+ on a phone case because, Amazon. #sorrynotsorry My other reasoning was that I wanted these two also and I definitely was not spending that much money on cellphone cases. I found…

    Fast Friday Five!

    I don’t have a lot of time to write this so I’m going to get right to it. And if you’re wondering, no, there won’t be alliterative titles for these post every time. I just got lucky this week. I just found out this afternoon that Fox has ordered more episodes for The Mindy Project! So now season 3 will have 21 episodes and I couldn’t be happier! Maybe next week I won’t include something TMP related, but for now let me live. I am addicted to the dollar sections in stores like Target and Michaels. I know I said that last week, but I only mentioned Target. I have…

    First Friday Five!

    It’s finally Friday! This will be my first Friday Five! I guess I’m feeling (f)alliterative. The first two things should come as no surprise since I bring them up every chance I get. But since this week was really uneventful, and I need things to list, I’m including them. The Mindy Project is back!- I probably don’t have to elaborate. As I’ve said in my last post, Mindanny is back and all is right in the (my) world. Growing Up Gotti is back!- My DVR is set for not only the hour long “where are they now?” special, but the 6 random episodes that A&E is playing on Sunday. Fingers crossed…
