Friday Fives

Happy Friday Ladies!  Does anyone have fun plans for the weekend?  I am going to see Wicked for a girls night with a group of wives & girlfriends of hubby's fraternity brothers.  This will be our first outing all together, just us girls, and I'm so excited!!!

This week's Friday Five from Beth and Just Me and My Life is...

Five things you do to relax, destress, contain your composure or that you just enjoy doing for yourself!

I really like this one!  Here are mine...

1. Have a nice glass of red wine.  Yumm....There is nothing more relaxing than opening up a nice bottle of red wine and curling up in the corner of the sofa, in the quiet.  My favorite wine of the moment is Silver Palm, and it's only $20 a bottle!

2. Play girlie music.  Yes, you heard it.  Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Katie Perry...the more girly the better (don't judge, please -haha!)  I used to do this all the time when I got home from a bad day a work when I lived alone, but this is a rare treat now that I'm married.  I don't think hubby knows about this little ritual, and I don't really want to show him : )  There is nothing more freeing than dancing around and singing to fun girly songs!

3. Anything at a spa.  I don't care if it is a bikini wax, I just love being at the spa and doing something nice just for me.  It just makes me happy to take care of myself.

4. The water.  Beach, Lake, Pond, River, Pool.  You name it, I LOVE it!  There is just something about being on the water that is so serene, so calming, so beautiful.  I hope I can live on some type of body of water someday.

5. Prayer.  When I am at my wits end, God is the only one that can bring me out of my funk or crisis.  Once I sit down and give it all to him to handle - and trust that he will take it off my shoulders, I am a new woman!

All are such fun ways to relax! The girly music is a winner. I listen to mine when I am in the car alone. I really wish I was a red wine drinking. I like most white wines, but just haven't found a red that I enjoy. Might have to give yours a try.
