Friday ~ Like the Day of the Week

Friday has always been my favorite day of the week. And here's why:

1. My maiden name is Friday. Do you think that may have biased me a little? Since the name Friday is not very common, it became second nature to reply, "Friday, like the day of the week" when someone asked me my name. I also got the privilege of saying "Michele with one L" a lot too. Now it's "Murray with an A". Why must my life be so complicated?
2. Since it's my maiden name, there are a lot of "Fridays" that I love, not the least of which are my mom and dad.
3. Friday is the end of the work week.
4. It's the beginning of the glorious weekend.
5. When I was teaching, I loved Friday night so much because I could go to bed without setting my alarm, knowing I could sleep in as late as I wanted. Obviously, I did not have children during those years. Now I never get to sleep as late as I want.
6. Tradition: Friday Night Pizza Night. We don't have pizza every Friday night, but I wish we did. Ha!
7. Date night! Do those even still exist? They used to exist on Friday nights. Distant memories...
8. Sleepovers! When I was little, Friday was the night I always got to spend at a friend's house! Not too many sleepovers going on these days either. Precious they linger!

What's your favorite day of the week? Why?

Wow I love Fridays too for lots of different reasons: memories of going out to eat and shopping with my family when I was young. Every. Friday. Night. Spending the night with my grandparents and watching the Dukes of Hazzard and Dallas. Every. Friday. Night. Me and hubby taking our kiddos out to eat at Barberitos. Almost. Every. Friday. Night. LOL! And lots more I won't go into at the moment. But Yay Friday!!!
