Friday Five

In starting the week off with strep to working till 11 last night... this girl could be happier that it is Friday. I am so excited to have the weekend off and NO plans. I can't remember the last weekend I was in Richmond with no plans and can't wait to do some serious relaxing. Thank you again for all the well wishes this week, I believe I am finally feeling back to normal and will most definitely be taking it easy this weekend. Let's take a look at a few things from this week...


As I mentioned in yesterday's post, on Sunday night I decided to spend the night in D.C with my girlfriends watching the Grammys and eating pizza. It was such a small simple pleasure but had me feeling like we were back in college. I am so fortunate to have such an amazing group of friends and being that we all live in different cities, I cherish every minute I am able to spend with them! 


Here's a glimpse of my view earlier this week while dealing with strep. I absolutely lived off Halls and Gatorade. The only positive that came out of this experience was making serious head way on my Gossip Girl obsession on Netflix. 


The past 2 weeks I have really fallen off the band wagon on meal planning, cooking, and working out. Earlier this week I was reading Simple Life of Delta Daisies and absolutely inspired by her life change and the results she has had. If you have not checked out her blog, I highly suggest you do so- it is absolutely amazing. From reading her various posts, I found that she gets a lot of her recipes from Gina's Skinny Taste. Y'all these recipes look so delicious and I've already made my shopping list for next week! Here's a few I am most looking forward to


As promised earlier this week, here are the amazing leather leggings I scored last week before heading out of town. They are a serious steal for under $30 and I know they will become a quick staple in my wardrobe.  Do yourself a favor and RUN to your closest Nordstrom to pick up these beauties!

In the spirit of being in Richmond with no plans this weekend, I plan on really having the weekend to myself. A Barnes and Noble trip, sleeping in, movie watching, a good glass of red... I could not be more ready for a little me time this weekend. 

Yours truly,

I love Skinnytaste! Seriously, at least 2-3 meals each week come from her site. Her recipes are great! Happy Friday!

I think those are the same leggings I bought to wear on NYE! Such a steal! I didn't wind up wearing them because our plans changed, but I'm going out for a friends bday tomorrow night and am thinking I'll wear those then! I love Skinnytaste's website and use her recipes all the time!

Totally with you on Delta Daises - doesn't she look so fantastic? I love SkinnyTaste - she is responsible for like 75% of our dinners!

Oh man, strep is no fun! Those mixed berry muffins look amazingly problem is that I really can't have berries in the house without eating all of them raw before I have time to make them into anything... :P
