First Friday of 2013!

High 5, Friday! 2013 is already shaping up to be a great year, and to prove this point, I'd like to share a few awesome things from the week.

1 & 2. New Year's Eve & New Year's Day
Hello great days. You, NYE2012, were not a typical Monday. You brought sleeping in, buying a memory foam mattress topper, an afternoon with my Little, an OKC Thunder game (and win!) AND walking around Bricktown! New Years Day, among other awesome things, brought the first Cowboy win of 2013. I'd say we're starting this year off right, you think? No joke, NYE and NYD (can I do that?), you two days are definite winners in my book. High. Five.

3. Sleeping
Alright, we all love sleep, I know. But like I said, I got a memory foam mattress topper on NYE, and to make it even better, I got it for cheap. Thanks to an incredible sale at Kohl's and the Kohl's Cash my mom gave me, I literally paid just over $5 for the most wonderful thing I've ever slept on. Regardless of how late I got home on NYE night, I was determined to put it on my bed. And oh my goodness I am so glad I did. I've probably thanked my mom at least eight times for giving me the Kohl's Cash to help buy the heavenly cloud-like surface I'm sleeping on, but I mean when I say it is amazing. Mom also had a new pillow that she gave to me, which is the perfect combination of fluffy and firm. I've seriously been having the best nights of sleep EVER for the last four nights. When you add on the footie pajamas I got for Christmas, sleep couldn't get much better.
Yes, that is my sideways foot that only goes to the beginning of the fox's eye.
4. The conversation I had with my Big on Thursday. 
It went from bragging on my social media skills to her calling me out on missing some very important/interesting news that I should have easily known well before our conversation had I actually been my social media ninja self lately. No worries, I'm stepping up my game. This made the high five list because the best conversations we have are typically hilarious and out of nowhere, and I'm so thankful for people like Caylee :)

5. Tate "saying" Go Pokes, much to his Sooner Mommy's dismay :) 
Lori & Tate came to watch Kaden play basketball against Minco Thursday night, and Auntie Shae had to teach him new tricks. We are also working on "Go Panthers!" and the Lori-approved "Go Kaden!"

Bonus: I've actually blogged multiple times this week. Guys, we might be onto something. Go 2013! :)

PS - happy ORANGE FRIDAY! #duh.
