Five Things Friday – #1

Happy Friday! If you’re a new reader, welcome! You can read more about me and this blog gig of mine here.

And whether you’re new or not, I have to point out two super cool new features about my blog…

#1) My blog is on Facebook!

I finally created a Facebook page for my blog! Hope you “like” it!


“Like” sharissespieces on Facebook!

Get it, “like” it? *nudge, nudge, wink wink* Go “like” my page now!

#2) New Blog Look!

My blog also has a new look – I call it my “serious” blog look. Don’t fret. My corny humor and candidness will still shine through, if not continue to be up front and center. I just love the timeless, crisp look of plain black on white. Took me a while to pick a theme and ended up with something called Truly Minimal. Very ironic for someone who can be very NOT-minimal! I’m all about excitement, flare, and sparkles!

Now for something FUN for FRIDAY! Five quick blurbs before I start the weekend…


~~~ Five Things Friday ~~~

#1: Sweet September

Fall is near! That means Apple Hill, pumpkins (carving/decorating > eating), boots, and colorful trees.


#2: Working out

You may have noticed I started working out again – gym + at home. Yeeeeeah, that’s working just (not) fine. At least I’m still playing volleyball!


#3: Coffee

Who noticed the salted caramel mocha is back at Starbucks? I did! *frantically waves both hands in the air*

Salted caramel mochas and pumpkin spice lattes and peppermint mochas, OH MY!

#4: New project

I came up with this grand idea that involves collaboration with other moms. I have no idea how it’ll turn out, but I’m excited to share soon!


And, the BEST thing about this Friday…

#5: New laptop

I finally got a new laptop! My old one has been out of commission since BEFORE the babies were born. At long last, I don’t have to worry about stealing the hub’s laptop and can write freely. Perfect timing after I stumbled across this writing challenge that I am excited to tackle!
