High Five for Fives

Sorry guys! Once again, no new recipe tonight. I have been in such a cooking slump this week – I think it’s partly due to the GORGEOUS weather outside! When I get home after work, I either head straight to the dog park with Grace (which is AWESOME by the way) or we take her on a nice long walk. I haven’t felt the itch to BBQ yet, but that will probably come next week if the weather stays nice. 🙂

Dog Park FTW!

That being said, I spent some time this evening catching up on some of my favorite posts by one of the best bloggers I know, Courtney. Seriously, guys, go check her stuff out – she rocks!!

I came across her post “My Fives” via the Link Within widget on the bottom of most blogs and I just had to participate since I recently did the ABC’s of me.

Arighty then, let’s get to it!
