Five on Friday

My friends Thauna and Lizzi at Life Besprinkled post a weekly Five on Friday column.  I love reading theirs and I'm inspired to try it. This week...

I took my baby girl to Motherhood maternity for her first mommy-to-be clothes.  I had fun, but she was fairly flipped out about facing her new curves.  But, you know, at least one of us enjoyed it.

Have you ever had a chance to see any of the Project Runway clothes up close?  The construction on some of them that look good on tv are a hot mess in person.

I thought all dogs liked water until I got mine.  He shakes so bad during bath time that now we both dread it.

When I go to some art exhibits, I get the same feeling I sometimes get when reading poetry or song lyrics.  I'm both completely inspired and absolutely annoyed that I don't have the same talent I admire in others.

The only reason I like Valentine's Day is because it's my sister's birthday.  Otherwise, I just think it's a day that makes a lot of people feel uncomfortable - whether you have a sweetheart or not.
