Five on Friday {May 15, 2015}


I'm always happy when Friday rolls around, but this one is particularly sweet since I'm off from work today and starting my three-day weekend! If you're wondering why I happen to be off on this random Friday, let's jump right into #1 of the five things I'm loving this week...

 
My Millionaire episode

A year has passed since filming, but my episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is finally airing today. I am slightly terrified to see how I look and sound on TV (and I'm kind of cringing when I remember a few of the things I said on camera that might make it to the final episode), so luckily I'll be watching the show with my parents and T. I can't wait to finally share the full behind-the-scenes scoop with you now that the episode is (almost) no longer a secret!


Pitch Perfect 2

What better way to kick off a three-day weekend than by hanging out with the Barden Bellas? Last night, T and I attended the "midnight" (aka 10pm) release of Pitch Perfect 2 (and I just so happen to be writing this post immediately after, so I'm still riding that a cappella high!). As a former college a cappella gal, this series holds a special place in my heart, and I'm happy to say that the sequel is just as much fun as the first movie. I don't want to say too much and give anything away, but the final performance sequence is pretty insane!


LazyBonezz Happy-Yappy Hour


But actually, my weekend started even before Pitch Perfect 2 because I got to meet up with Pamela for a happy hour hosted by LazyBonezz, which is known for its fashion-forward pet accessories.


 Now, I have to confess that I do not have a pet, but M's dog Fred is basically my niece so I was happy to attend on her behalf (plus: there were cocktails and manicures for the humans!).


They have all sorts of glitzy collars, dog beds, and more so if you're looking to glam up your pet's accessories, check them out!

Music video shoot

My dear friend J is no stranger to this blog (remember his fierce spin on gift recommendations for your guy?) and he also happens to be a super-talented songwriter. Earlier this week, a bunch of us packed into a Soho loft to film an epic dance party to be used in J's upcoming music video (hence the big group selfie above). There was a lot of jumping around and fist pumping and I can't wait to see the final product!

The Girl on the Train

I finally jumped on the bandwagon (or I guess in this case, the train) and devoured The Girl on the Train in less than 24 hours. It was suspenseful and gripping, and I highly recommend it if you (like me) tend to gravitate towards darker reads.

I hope you all enjoy your weekends, especially now that we are halfway to June!


Cheers to April, AmandaJennieKarliClare, Rebecca, Katie, Heather, Farrah, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!

  21. How fun that you were on Millionaire! I can't wait for the behind-the-scenes scoop. I'm glad to hear PP2 is just as fun as the first, and wasn't Girl on the Train ridiculously addicting?! I'm sure it will be a movie before we know it. Happy Saturday!

  22. So cool that you were on Millionaire! And I can't wait to see Pitch Perfect 2. The Girl on the Train is on my (super long!) reading list. It's not in any order, so I think I'll pick this one up next because everyone has been talking about it! I loved Gone Girl and Dark Places by Gillian Flynn so I'm thinking I'll love this dark read too.

  24. Ahh! SO fun that you were on Millionaire!! Will there be a rerun or a way to rewatch it?!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can't wait to hear more about your Millionaire experience! SO COOL! Also, Chuck has to go to NYC for work the next 2 weekends and Ethan & I are most likely heading out there Saturday-Monday this weekend. Any MUST DO'S with a young one (he's 11) you can recommend? I've only been there once, and not with children! Thanks gals :)

  26. Eep! I've gotta check the episode out now. If you won a million, I'm expecting at least a drink the next time we meet up! Also, Girl On The Train was completely not on my radar but over the past week or so, I've heard so much about it. Gotta get to it soon!

  28. I can't wait to read your post about Who wants to be a Millionaire. I wish I could have seen the episode. Pitch Perfect 2 was so good. It was hilarious! The girl on the train is on my list to read next. Thanks for linking up to H54F! Have a great weekend!
