Five on Friday - August 25, 2017

It's finally Friday! And that means it's time for another Five on Friday! I hope you'll join in! All you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add the Five on Friday logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools found on Smidge of This. It's easy, and a great way to find new blogs to read, and a great way to be found!

So I actually started my job last Monday (the 14th)... I was just getting used to having to go to and from work every day, and be somewhere for 8+ hours, so I unfortunately missed my Five on Friday last week, but that's okay, cause I'm here this week! I'm going to try and keep it a weekly post, but if for some reason I can't, then hopefully two times a month will be good as well! So far, the job is going well. I enjoy the work, it's easy, but very repetitive. It's just data entry for a logistics company, but it's a good way to get my foot in the door. The position is temporary, but I'm hoping it will continue past the 3 months.

I bought myself this pretty orchid last weekend. They were actually 30% off at Real Canadian Superstore. I've never had one before, but I've heard they can last a long time. Fingers crossed I can keep this one surviving!

Two weekends ago I ended up visiting some family up north for my Grandma's 80th birthday. It was a surprise for her, and she was shocked! Almost the whole family made it, so she was very happy to see everyone. It was nice to see everyone as well, since it has been a few months. We ended up going to a restaurant called The Farmhouse in Barrie, they use all farm fresh ingredients, and they even had their own cultivator growing some herbs and lettuce. I had a cobb salad (because I'm on my boring low-carb diet still) but it was delicious! And the portion was huge. My dad ordered breakfast and said it was good. A few other family members ordered pulled pork sandwiches and they said it was great. My grandma even cleared her plate, even after saying she wasn't that hungry! The view was nice as well, because the location overlooks the bay. If you're in the Barrie area looking for a resaturant to check out, I'd definitely recommend The Farmhouse!

I ended up purchasing some items in the subscription box buy/trade/sell group that I'm in on Facebook. This time I purchased a Tarte blush in the shade Thrilled, a Tarte lip paint in TBT and an ION hair mask, because I really liked the one I previously purchased from Sally's Beauty Supply. I'm really loving Tarte's blushes, and I love the formula of the lip paint.

Did you all see the eclipse on Monday? Unfortunately I was working, and I'm not near a window, so I didn't get to see it. Did you get any pictures!? Was it as cool as it sounded?! Let me know!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I managed to catch a cold this week at work, so I'll be getting plenty of rest!
