high five for friday.

It's Friday and I couldn't be more excited!  Our office at work has been packing all week and will be moving this weekend and part of next week.  It will be nice when we are all settled in and work life can resume to normal (somewhat).
Here are my top 5:

1. I got BRAND NEW tires on my lil' red this week.  First time I have ever bought tires, so it's a huge step into the grown up world. Atlantic Tire even gave my car back washed and detailed...now that's service.  Anyways, more on that next week as it is one of my 101 in 1001 goals that I haven't blogged about yet.

2. We have this little food truck rodeo in Research Triangle Park once a month or so.  This week, my friend and I finally missed the lines and got to try the Chirba Chirba Dumplings. They are AMAZING...especially with their pineapple dipping sauce.

3. I texted my roommate one afternoon and told her that we were having pancakes for dinner.  Now, I am not very good at making pancakes, so it could have turned into a Chinese takeout type of night, but it was awesome.  I perfected my art of pancake flipping and will be going out to purchase another one of Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle Mixes before they leave the store.  A must try with REAL maple syrup (they sell this at TJs too!)

4. I was feeling especially tired Tuesday night, but my mind was racing and I had to try to stay up for my class online.  I grabbed the sleepy-time tea, brewed it, and found myself snoozing through half of my class.  Whoops. Gotta catch up on that this weekend.

5. My roommate wants me to run a half marathon with her in April while she runs the full marathon.  I think she's crazy, but we both started "training" this week.  What have I gotten myself into?
