High Five For Friday

Happy Friday! I've been traveling a lot for work the past few weeks, so I haven't been able to do a #H54F.  There isn't anymore traveling until November, so I can get back into my blogging. Yay! Let's get to it, shall we?

{one}  I found out about  Lit Cube -  Surprise Boxes Filled with Awesome Book Geekery - and was super excited. The August  box was a Wizard of Oz themed box. I had to have it! Opening the box was like Christmas in August. There was a fabulous origami necklace in the shape of a heart that says Wonderful Wizard of Oz all over it; a great book mark that looks like the Wicked Witch of the East's legs with the ruby slippers (ya know, as the house fell on her in munchkin land?); a lollypop; a great new book and a few more things.  I love it!

{two} As I mentioned above, I've been traveling a lot for work. Last week I was in Norfolk for a trade show. On one of the evenings the Norfolk Convention & Visitors Bureau hosted a dinner cruise. It was awesome! Richmond, VA had a photo area set up on the second floor.  The cruise took us around the harbor during sunset and we saw a few dolphins jumping in the water.

{three} On my way home from Norfolk I stopped in Richmond to have dinner with the fabulous Sadie. We went to a great restaurant called The Boathouse. Every item we got was fantastic - the calamari, salmon, apple crip! You have to check it out if you're ever in that area. Plus, the restaurant has an amazing view of the river and the city skyline.

{four} This past weekend I went up to northern Virginia with my mom. We visited with my brother and his friends, had a fabulous time at their house, and got some shopping in. On our way out of town Mom and I stopped at Cracker Barrel for breakfast. You've been there, right? I hope so. If you haven't then YOU'VE GOT TO GO! The biscuits are amazing. We got some apple butter with them. So yummy!

{five} Back in June I was assisting with an event for work. I was on my feet for about 2-3 hours in really bad sandals. Later that same day I was volunteering with our Pinball Museum for their grand opening. Standing on my feet, in the same crappy sandals for another three hours. Three months later I go to the doctor, because my heel still hurts. Turns out I have plantar fasciitis.  I tore the tissue that connects the heel through the arch to the toes. I bought these awesome flip flops that have crazy cushion and arches. I also bought brand new tennis shoes and stiff arch support to go in them.  I have to wear something with an arch for the next four weeks. I can't even get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom without a shoe on. Super fun!
