High Five for Friday Five...

See what I did there?

It's Friday, y'all!  To celebrate, I'm linking up with Lauren and Joy for High Five for Friday and Friday Five, respectively. 

{one}  I'm getting my hair colored tomorrow. Finally. I'm just a little worried because my maternity pictures are also tomorrow, and the color might be a little too... vibrant since I won't be able to wash it afterward. But I guess that's what Photoshop is for.

{two}  This happened last night.


It's S'mores Crack Dip.  And it's heavenly.  The recipe really couldn't be any easier, but there's something about dipping the graham crackers into the chocolatey, marshmallowy goodness that feels so gourmet.  And I used low-fat graham crackers, so it was totally healthy.  Ha.

{three}  I ended up paying for my just-before-bed indulgence because I woke up last night at midnight with crazy reflux.  Even Zantac couldn't save me.  So I headed to the couch, propped myself up on pillows, and finally fell asleep.  (I may or may not have slept in this morning to make up for the lost hours.  I guess I'd better do that while I can because I'm pretty sure Grace won't be as forgiving as work is. :))

{four}  I get to see my favorite niece tonight at my brother's "birthday" dinner, and I couldn't be more excited.  (Technically, my brother doesn't want to celebrate his 30th birthday, but there's really no getting around it.  I mean, today is his birthday, and there will be presents.) 

Little princess is just so freaking sweet and just a little bit obsessed with her Uncle Micah right now.  Every time I call my sister-in-law, I hear Stella in the background saying "Micah, Ry-Ry, Micah, Ry-Ry!"  Apparently we're a package deal to her. 


(One guess as to which one of us was behind the camera and which was the recipient of that little grin...)

{five}  There's a chance I'm going to speak in court next week.  It'll be my first time (depositions don't count because they're not in court or before a judge/jury), and I'm terrified.  And thrilled. 

It probably sounds weird that I'm a third-year attorney and haven't yet spoken in court, but I work on big patent cases.  At most firms who do these kind of cases, I probably wouldn't have even been inside a courtroom yet, but my firm is really great about getting good experience to young attorneys, so I've been to trial (as part of the trial team) three times now, and this is the next step.  Fingers crossed I don't totally blow it... :)

So how has your week been?

Go link up and tell us!

You're gonna knock em dead next week in court! And I'm totally stealing that recipe. Just because I feel the need to HAVE it! There is something about the nieces and their uncles. Get use to it because our nieces are 10 and 8 and they love their Uncle Terry more than me. It's a fact. Ha! I love hair cut and color day. Makes me feel wonderful until I see all the color that's on my forehead. Dead giveaway that I just got my hair did! Ha! Love you Ryan! Have a wonderful weekend, and I can't wait to see the maternity pics!!! Thanks for linking up and Happy Friday!

I am a smores addict, so I don't know if I should make the dip.
And that little baby/toddler belly is the cutest thing ever!!
Congrats on speaking in court! You should do great! How exciting is that? I am not a lawyer, but one day I want to walk in and yell OBJECTION! Just for fun!
Enjoy tomorrow!

Man, that s'mores dip looks fantastic! Best of luck in court. You've got this!

You will do awesome. Don't be nervous. Just take a deep breath and relax. Before long it will be second nature. I was the same way at first!
