The Friday Five

1.  Espwa means HOPE in Hatian Creole.  All of the proceeds from these shirts go to support orphans in Port-Au-Prince!  **They run small so buy up a size.

2.  I have two new favorite shows.  Neither are family friendly and they’re dark, but SO good!



3.  While you’re watching new shows, pop some Tiny but Mighty Popcorn!

  • Outrageously delicious Heirloom popcorn kernels
  • Organic, expeller pressed, sustainably sourced palm oil
  • NON-GMO Verified, Gluten-Free, all natural dairy free
  • Virtually hulless ~ great for kids and folks with digestive concerns!

4.  I have lived in my Always Be Joyful tank from Fit and Faithful!

5.  Trail running badass and blogger, Beth Meadows, wrote a list of “Things to Keep in Mind When Dating/Married to/Friend of/Parent to an Ultra & Trail Runner.  Click HERE to read the full list!

  • When we say we “need” to go for a run, we mean it!
  • Vacation time is still running time.
  • Ultra signup can be a more dangerous website than Ashley Madison.

  • Sarah @ SarahRuns26

    Haha…I love that the ultra signup can be more dangerous than Ashley Madison. That’s probably more accurate than I’d like to think! Have a great weekend Jen!

    I heard the Narco show is amazing! We just started watching Fear the Walking Dead too, we’re already obsessed with Walking Dead.

    • JenChoosesJoy

      I love Walking Dead, too!

  • Richelle Winston

    Fear the walking dead had me screaming at the tv last episode. Love that show, haven’t watched Narco yet.

    • JenChoosesJoy

      I have to mute the sound on walking dead when it gets too intense, lol!

  • Suzy Slane

    I went to Haiti in 1996! Incredible trip. Creole is a dialect of French, interestingly enough.

    • JenChoosesJoy

      That’s very cool!!!

  • Heather Davis

    I loved the trail runner list. It was too comical, with the “come home smelling like ass,” and “Asley Madison” comments. Have a great weekend!

  • Amanda B @ Cupcakes and Miles

    I was wondering about Narcos; I guess I’ll have to check it out.

  • Abby

    I Love Netflix, but haven’t heard of that show. Thanks, I’ll check it out.

  • Reese Derrenberger

    Netflix definitely has some interesting originals, I’ll have to check that one out.
