High Five Friday Confessions...

I don't normally do link-ups on Fridays, but my girl Joy is hosting Friday Five, and I thought I'd join in.  Turns out Lauren also has a fun Friday link-up, so it feels like it's meant to be. ;)  And because my Friday posts usually resemble confessions of sorts, I'm showing some love to the always-fabulous Leslie, as well. (And really, I'm just giving you the same ole' ramblings you're used to, so this lengthy introduction was likely very unnecessary.)  Anywhoodle... let's get to it, shall we?

{One}  I stumbled upon this City Wall Banner a few days ago and decided that, although I loved my Home Goods clearance finds, I loved these a little more.

These are significantly bigger and almost the same price as the Home Goods versions, and they, too, came in both London and Paris varieties. Plus, they're the same size (the Home Goods London sign was much bigger than the Paris sign), so that makes finding the right spot for them in my game room much easier.  Now, I've just got to decide on which London/Paris photos I want to have blown up and get the canvases ordered.  I'm excited to be finally figuring out my vision for the game room, and I hope it all comes together without looking cheesy.

{Two} I looked down at my feet last night and saw what no girl ever wants to see, even if they are twenty-six weeks pregnant: cankles. Apparently the days of swollen feet have begun.  Goody.

{Three}  A sweet reader (hi, Dee Dee!) mentioned that she was having trouble seeing my pictures, and I just wanted to take a quick poll and see if anyone else was having the same issue.  I forgot to mention this, but awhile back, I apparently hit my Blogger photo upload limit (I think it was all those large-sized London/Paris photos that did me in...), and my options were to either (1) pay for more storage space or (2) start uploading all my photos to Photobucket and pasting HTML code into my posts.  I chose the Photobucket option because it was free and because I didn't have any issues getting the pictures to appear in my browser or Google reader, but I may obviously need to rethink that if you guys can't see them!

{Four}  Micah and I are making a concerted effort (I won't quite call it a resolution) to be more social this year.  We both work hard and are pretty homebody-ish, so we like our weekends pretty quiet and cuddly.  But we also really love our friends and want to be better about spending time with them.  So we're going to try harder to venture out into land of people and spend less time curled up on the couch.

{Five}  I found out yesterday that the sweet girls from work and some of the attorneys' wives want to throw me a shower/luncheon in March, and it seriously made my day.  These ladies are fabulous, and I'm excited to get to visit with them and get ready for Grace's debut!  (Let's all pray, though, that she doesn't decide to come early, because we'll be cutting it really close...)

Alright, y'all - what are you confessing/high fiving about today?

YAY!! Thanks for link up today! And, I'll admit, I now pay for my storage for pictures on the blog. Mainly because it's easier, and it's really not that much. And, if you'll send me an email with your addy, I have somethings in mind that I'd like to spoil Grace with. Let's see if I can start another sentence with "and" again! HA! Have a wonderful weekend Ryan! Even if that does include snuggling and cuddling!

I love the sign! Definitely keep an eye out on Groupon for some of the canvas deals. Canvas People and Canvas on Demand both do really great jobs!

How sweet of your co-workers! I've been able to see your pictures no problem! I hear you on being more social. I'm definitely a homebody too, even for a 22 year old! haha

One possibility with the pictures is that DeeDee may be on a computer/network that blocks certain sites. Whenever I upload pictures through Blogger my husband can see them at work, but his company blocks Photobucket so he is unable to see those pics. Have to say that Photobucket is the way to go for long picture-filled posts though...so much easier!

A resolution to be less homebody-ish?? Uh, no. It's all I can do to make it to the gym most evenings. :)
