5 on Friday

Happy Friday Y'all!! Good lord did this week seem to drag on to anyone else, I swear the days were not moving! Getting back from vacation is always hard, everyday I felt like I was a little off my game and could not catch up! I have much higher hopes for next week and am excited to get back on track with my routine. As for 5 on Friday....

I am and have always been a huge music fan- I believe it is an entire mood changer and I often turn to music when I am feeling a wide variety of emotions- mad, sad, frustrated, excited... you name it and I have a song for it. My current song obsessions and ones that I have been playing NONSTOP are...

Avicii- Wake Me Up

John Mayer- Paper Doll

This past week I tried out 2 new recipes and both turned out great! Being that I wasn't make it to the gym, I made it a point to eat clean all week and absolutely loved these recipes!

Paleo Tuna Fish- Amazing, recipe to come!

Veggie Enchiladas- also amazing, recipe next week!

One would think by now that I am tired of traveling but this girl could not be more excited for all the upcoming trips I am working on! This week a huge group of my friends and I decided that we are having a reunion in one of my favorite cities! It should be no shocker where the reunion is, given my excitement over anything in North Carolina...
That's right... Raleigh! 2 weeks and counting until I am reunited with some of my best friends from college!


We are one week closer to my birthday!! I'm pretty big on birthdays- love celebrating others and definitely love celebrating my own. It's always a nice time to bring people together and also a chance to treat yourself a little bit! Next week I will definitely post on a few things I have my eye on...

Last but not least is happy but also a bit of a downer. This weekend I was supposed to be heading to Baltimore to see my best friend, Alison. We were planning to head up to Rochester, NY where her boyfriends family is throwing a huge charity golf tournament. The weekend was going to be filled with lots of time outside, catching up, and indulging in a little day drinking. Unfortunately Alison got called to work both days this weekend so our catch up weekend will have to wait. Good thing I will be seeing Al in a few weeks for another trip to the beach so all will be well and I will get to finally spend some time with my best! 

Now, instead of hanging around Richmond and attempting to get my life back in order like I should... I will be heading to the Outer banks to see my family for a few days! They have been down there all week and I can't wait to surprise them tonight! Here's to another great weekend with family, friends, sun, and more salt air!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Yours truly,

I've been spending a lot of time in North Carolina lately because we just recently moved our sailboat to New Bern. I absolutely love it there, so so beautiful! I love birthdays too, and that cake looks so good right now!

Have had the tuna, egg, and avocado recipe myself. It's no tuna fish sandwich -- but still yummy!

Have so much fun in North Carolina! I am traveling there for the first time in October. So excited!

Have a great weekend!
