5 on (ALMOST) Friday!

I can't believe it is the last day of January ALREADY!  Where did that month go?? I missed linking up yesterday... So here is my "5 on (Almost) Friday"

1. I will be so happy when tomorrow's game is over.  We are so not football fans (I know, it's almost unpatriotic to admit that!)  Up until yesterday, I didn't even know who was playing in the Super Bowl (other than the Patriots...because "team spirit" day at work was the talk of the week and my boss is a huge Patriots fan).  The whole "Deflate Gate" was hard for me to wrap my head around and the drama has been slightly ridiculous.

2.  I am reading a really good book.  I picked it up after seeing that it was written by Colleen McCullough, who wrote The Thorn Birds (which I LOVED).   

3.  So, here ends the first month of the 2,015 in 2015 Mileage Challenge.  I had set a goal of hitting an average of 5.5 miles per day and I am thrilled to say that, as of last night, I have logged 175 miles this month! That's 4.5 miles more than I needed AND today isn't logged yet.  I am going to bank those extra miles for next month (knowing that I won't be getting in 5.5 per day when I go on vacation).  Yay, Me!

4.  For Christmas, my hubby bought me a tv for my dreadmilling pleasure.  I am not really into watching tv, my attention span is not very long, but I needed something to stare at as I get those miles in.  This past weekend, all the moons and stars aligned and the tv is now working!  The big question was... What to watch?  I surfed through Netflix and found an intriguing show that aired last year.  If you've ever watched Salem, you know it's a "little" dark (Quite the opposite of Downton Abbey!).  The second season doesn't air until the spring.  If you haven't seen it, give it a try and let me know what you think!     

5.  My final "5" for today is this... I am lusting after these boots.  I don't know why.  I've never owned a pair of Uggs before and have never really wanted to jump on that bandwagon.  I don't know if it's this insanely cold, snowy weather pattern we are in (they look cozy), or if it's the fact that I am tired of having cold feet (I've heard they are super warm), or if I am just jonesing to spend a gift certificate that I got LAST Christmas (as in 2013) but...Ooooo, I want them :)
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
