FIRST High Five!

Happy first Friday of 2013! I hope your three (or plus) day work week has been fantab.... I know it will be after today since the weekend is here yet again!

Today I'm linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk to share my top five fave things from my week. Here's the the very first 2013 H54F!

We returned back from Texas to these two cutie patootie faces! Oh how I missed em so, but I think they missed us more!! They haven't left our side since we've been back.

This week I heard back from a journal I submitted my dissertation to for publication. They didn't give me a "NO," but they gave me suggestions for revisions. THAT, I can work with!! I became an expert is revising while working on my dissertation. After revising with my chair as the second author, I'll resubmit it later this month for another round of reviews! One step closer to my goal of getting my manuscript published (fingers crossed).

Last supper of 2012 was a mighty fine one! We ate sushi til our buttons popped! Our stuffed faces lead us into the countdown for the new year.... New year meaning new planner and calendar, which took some time in transferring birthdays! But I always feel so rejuvenated once all dates are entered!

Wednesday night, I spent 2 hours (maybe even longer) Facetiming my little brother who wanted to play games all night long. He wanted to download every single game that had multiple players so we can virtually compete. The funniest thing was that his face didn't even show most of our call... he just wanted to stay online so I can hear his noise effects as he crushed me on every game! All in all, it was great QT spent from afar!

I've been having a great time playing around with my new toy, thanks to the Alamo Bowl!! Any suggestions for fun iPad apps???

What's the happs with you lovies? Link up with Lauren and share your five fave for H54F!

P.S. As you may have noticed, I'm trying to be good with adding a watermark to my pictures. Instagram's new policies and procedures got me thinking about my photos.... and I'm trying to make a habit of watermarking! Let's see how it goes.

I had sushi on NYE too!! Yours looks soooo delicious! And I love those doggy faces! I bet they missed you!

Leanne @ Simply Beautiful said...

Looks like a great week! I hope the weekend is even better :)

Also, Instagram updated their policies since there were so many complaints. I'd encourage you to check out their terms and conditions under your profile tab, then clicking the settings button (top right, the cogwheel), and then scroll down to the bottom under Terms and read it. It's not as bad or upsetting as originally thought.

Also, I posted this Instagram pic ( that kind of explained it in a nutshell.

I hope all of this is helpful!
Have a great Friday :)
