high five for friday

I can't believe it's FINALLY Friday!  This week goes down in the record books as one of my longest weeks ever.  And I can't even explain why.  It just felt indescribably long!

Luckily, some good stuff happened along the way!  Here are my five highlights of the week.

1) First off, I won the Create My Creature giveway on Hena's blog (she's awesome!), and I'm super excited about it!  Amanda at Create My Creature takes children's drawings and brings them to life.  And just look how cute they turn out!  I told Chloe about it last night and she's already brainstorming about what sort of creature she's going to create.  Her ideas went from "half cat-half dog" to "dog with a unicorn horn", then to "just a regular dog".  I'll be sure and let you know what she finally decides on, and what Amanda comes up with!

2) In celebration of a co-workers birthday on Wednesday, a group of us walked to the food trucks on 2nd & Pike.  The food trucks rotate every day of the week, so there's always something different available.  Originally I had my heart stomach set on the Grilled Cheese Experience, but decided on 314Pie at the last minute.  Food trucks aren't always vegetarian-friendly, but luckily they had a veggie & curry pot pie on the menu.  Delish!!
3) After work that same day, I had some time to kill while waiting for my ride.  I ended up wandering around Pike Place Market, which is something I rarely do.  Since I work a mere five blocks from the Market, you'd probably think I'm pretty familiar with it as this point, right?  Not so.  In the four and a half years I've lived/worked in Seattle, I've only been to the market a handful of times.  So it was nice to have a little free time at the end of my day just to walk around and explore different shops and restaurants.
4) Self-evaluations are due at work today, and I'm totally procrastinating.  Is there anything more awkward than trying to brag about how awesome you are without sounding like a tool?  I loathe doing these things.  But, thanks to Elle Woods, I thought I finally came up with the perfect solution.  Sadly, my boss didn't go for it.
5) Since Tony and I didn't have much time to celebrate Valentine's Day yesterday, we're going to do dinner and movie tonight.  Yay!  We haven't decided on where to eat dinner yet, but we'll be seeing Warm Bodies.  I hope it's good!  (Is it just me or is this picture very Twilight-esque?)
 
 Linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday.

Well, that's it folks!  What were some of your highlights this week?

  5. Looks like you had a good week!! And I would have to agree with you that this week MUST be a record for longest week ever. There had to have been like, 3 extra days added to it! ...Stopping by from H54F! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! And that maybe, just maybe the weekend might feel as long as the work week?! We can hope at least right?!
