High Five Friday #122

by Meg on June 27, 2014

Good morning, loves!

Wow, did this week fly by! Today is my last Friday living in London, so it’s a jam-packed day (just as these next six days will be!) and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my last Friday in London than celebrating the 122th High Five Friday with you all!


The following high fives were submitted to me via email. If you’d like to appear in next weeks post please email your HFF submissions to adashofmeg@gmail.com :) Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you! :)

Sara – I am giving myself a high five because I am finally giving the blog more love and attention, and this week I am hosting my very first giveaway! It is not just for girls – you pick your product color or design from the shops. So make sure you head over and get entered.


I finally got my blog Facebook Page up! Go hit like so you can stay up to date and be involved with what I am working on. Oh, and have you seen the fabulous new layout? Misty at Us and Him is responsible, I just love her.

Lilly and I made it to baby sign for the first time this week! Something we have been trying to do for like a month, but we always end up sleeping in. Our Matching shirts from Mama Case Prints came, and I just love matching my mini. Oh and Lilly has slept through the night for the last three nights! She must have known mama was in need of some sleep.

Also, my Jamberry Launch party wrapped up, although orders can still be added! If you want adorable nails that don’t chip go get some wraps here ladies!


Tanya - My high five is that I completed my 4th half marathon (Grandma’s, Duluth, MN) while being 13 weeks pregnant! I’m hoping to be able to keep up running and working out during this whole pregnancy but obviously will listen to my body!


Meg - I’d love to give myself a High Five this week for COMMUNICATING. I am a really stubborn person and sometimes with avoid conflict instead of confronting it and resolving it. This week, I addressed two situations that left my stomach in knots AND I’m happy to report that I feel so much better for talking it out! Yay for being brave!


Deana - Last week my psychiatrist and I decided I didn’t need remeron anymore. It’s a medication I started in February after going through some personal stuff in the fall, but it was to increase my appetite and help me sleep. Feeling great after being off it for about a week! Still eating what I truly enjoy and am going to enjoy one last dinner with Meg this weekend before she moves home. <3

I will be giving myself a high five this week for a couple of different things!

- Setting two new PRs in the gym (for squats and OH presses)

- Making time for friends despite being busy with school coming to an end and packing for my big move

- Praying a lot more each and every day!

Thanks to those of you who submitted high fives to me this week! I always love having you on my blog and sharing your successes with the world!

Remember, be proud of yourself for everything – even the smallest accomplishments you make throughout the day. You don’t have to ace a test or place first in a race to celebrate yourself. Celebrate yourself for being you and all of the little things you do throughout your life! You deserve it!

If you didn’t submit a high five to me this week make sure you tell me what you’re high fiving yourself for this week in the comment section below!

What’s your high five today? 

See you Monday!

I’m SO thankful it’s Friday! ha! But I’m giving myself a high five for making it to CrossFit this week 4 times while still getting in my runs. Also, for letting myself just relax and get to know new people… ;)

Ahh congrats to everyone! Shoutout to Tanya for the Grandma’s marathon! Those are my stomping grounds and I really want to run that half when I return home! My high five is for starting CrossFit, LOVING it, and signing up for a 3x a week membership. :)

My high five today? Last day of my 3 day juice cleanse that I did to support my hubby’s 5 day one! I am feeling energized, happy, and healthy today and thankful for this little challenge!

That’s awesome Meg! Do you think you could share a post on your PRs and how long it took to progress to them? I’m working really hard on my strength and would love to know! :)

This is my first time reading your blog, and I like this high five friday thing! Congrats on your race! I did the best I could to run during my pregnancy, and while I had to definitely cut back, it felt great to be able to run!
