5 Things Friday


1. Lately I’ve been marathoning my way through the show Alias on Netflix, on the boy’s recommendation. And overall, I quite like it. I’m currently in season 3. Season 1 was awesome and got me hooked, and season 2 was mostly more of the same goodness. But right at the very end of season 2 there’s a huge WTF ploy, and I’m sad to say season 3 is just not as good. I’m hoping it turns around. But even if not, it’s given me new appreciation for Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper.

2. I’m still going strong on my shopping ban! I know, it’s only been 8 days, which seems a pretty paltry accomplishment. But considering I’ve been tempted by certain things and didn’t purchase, I’m calling it a willpower win.

3. Apparently I’ve been a no-reply blogger on Blogger blogs for awhile? It’s now fixed. I had changed the setting way back when, but apparently when I connected my Blogger account to my Google+ profile it erased that setting. And nobody told me! Regardless, it’s just a matter of reverting to Blogger, updating the setting AGAIN, and then re-connecting to Google+. In case you’re in the same boat as I was.

4. You always hear about the wet dog smell, but not so much about the sunshine dog smell. Tell me I’m not the only one that has noticed this? When Sienna sits or lays outside on the porch in the sunshine for awhile, when she comes back in she has a distinct smell. It’s not bad, and it’s not as simple as ‘she smells like grass and wind’ so I’ve dubbed it the sunshine smell. This can’t just be my dog. Dog owners?

5. In honor of Valentine’s Day, now through midnight next Thursday, you can get 14% off anything in my shop using code LOVEDAY2013. That’s good on custom & customizable orders, too, people! 🙂

Happy weekend!


    1. Hi there! Netflix marathons are the best, aren’t they? I’m already in Season 4 since I wrote this post, haha. 😀 Definitely feel free to join in sometime.

    1. Ha! Yay! Glad I’m not the only one. And yeah, would’ve fixed the no-reply thing sooner if I’d known G+ cancelled that setting. Bah.

  1. My dog definitely has the sunshine smell sometimes! I haven’t watched Alias but I’m thinking of doing it at some point. Have you ever watched Dollhouse? I’m kind of obsessed with it.

    1. Haha, good – glad I’m not just imagining things/scents. 🙂

      I did watch Dollhouse! I’ll pretty much watch anything with Tahmoh Penikett. 😀 I did like it, but then they found out they were getting cancelled and the end of season 2 is a crazy dash to wrap things up, so that’s kind of a bummer. Networks need to quit canceling Josh Whedon shows. For reals.

  2. Wow it has been so long since I watched all of Alias that I forgot Bradley Cooper was in it! It did seems to get worse for me but it was one of those shows, kind of like Lost, where it went down the crapper but I was so invested in the characters that I enjoyed watching the characters.

    What do you mean by a no-reply Blogger? As in you would comment on a Blogger blog and they couldn’t comment back to you? The trouble I have with Blogger blogs is if I hit the “notify of comments” button it goes directly to my spam. It doesn’t do that with WordPress blogs at all.

    1. Nevermind I just figured out that I am also a no-reply Blogger. I had to research what the heck no-reply blogger meant. 😉 I was confused because I know other Bloggers have replied to me who use Blogger, with no problem.

      1. Sorry I’m a slow comment replier!! Glad you figured it out, though. I’m kind of baffled by the whole thing, too, since I’ve always been on WordPress.

        Re: Alias, Season 4 seems to be picking back up, so I’m hooked again. 🙂

        1. I have to say, I checked the box so that I’m not a “no-reply” blogger but I’m not sure if I’m totally opposed to being a no-reply blogger. People can still reply to me and, well, it’s more than that.
