Friday Friday Friday

TGIF big time this week.
I can't wait to just do nothing this weekend {my weekend recap won't be very exciting- you've been warned!}

Here are the 5 best things from my week!

{1} I am in love with this nail polish from July's Birchbox!

{2} Food this week- I've been making some pretty bangin salads with fruit, walnuts, gorgonzola cheese, and raspberry olive oil dressing- YUM

We also made a crazy awesome dinner the other night... I made re-baked potatoes, Chris cooked steak and served both with broccoli
(sorry about that picture quality... still learning how to use my phone's camera)

I also made a Mediterranean pasta (without a recipe) that I made up as I went along. I never do that. I've been horrible at cooking and am just learning. 
That was a huge step! 
I don't have pictures of that meal but I'm going to come up with a recipe and will certainly be posting it soon :)

And last night's incredible on-the-fly takeout sushi.....

They even gave us a free roll! I have no idea what was in it, but it was amazing. 
I've enjoyed all this amazing food this week and still counted calories. I am down 3 pounds!!! To be fair, I have no idea how many calories are in sushi. I need to look that up.

{3} Malibu Melon Rum- This is my new summer favorite to mix with seltzer, sprite or juice... try it. You'll thank me.
clearly this isn't the only type of alcohol we enjoy, judging by what's in the background. you can barely see my 1800 tequila but that stuff if the bomb in a margarita...or by itself ;)

{4} Thanks, Pinterest. Before you, I never knew that putting the green onion stems in a glass of water would make them grow into new green onions- but now I know.
And I know that it works!

I put that thing in water 3 days ago and all that green on the top is new growth. So cool!!!

{5} Most importantly... 
I can say that I am so thankful for the wonderful people in my life. I don't say that enough. 
To my family and friends: I don't even see most of you enough. Just please know that I love you and think about you all every day! and to my co-workers (they also fall under the friend category- lucky me!), I don't know what I would do without you lovely ladies!
To my amazing boyfriend: Thanks for sticking with me through thick and thin- you are the bestest and always make me laugh. For example, you like to change my phone to a background called "skull from hell":

That is horrifying. But I love you for it.

To my bloggy friends: I've had so much fun meeting and getting to know all of you! :)

Ok ok, enough of that. 
Of course, I am linking up with Lauren for H54F!!!


Also, a reminder that I would love to swap buttons with you so send me an email! I don't care if we've just met, I'm sure we will be friends :)

Have a fantastic weekend!!!!


  1. Don't you just love Pinterest? I do, even though it makes me feel just a little bit pathetic sometimes, because some of the ideas seem so obvious after someone else has thought of them! =)And I've been cooking a lot more too lately. It's more fun that I thought it would be! Good for you!

    1. Haha yeah that is so true... I know nothing about plants or food so I had no idea that onions would grow again. Guess you learn something new everyday! lol

  2. I am obsessed with that nailpolish too!

  3. Bahaha, I laughed so hard at the skull from hell! I too am a Malibu fan and I will be dragging both of my kids to the liquor store to buy me some o'dat! :)

    1. I laughed too after I screamed. I'm picturing you dragging them to buy liquor and it's hilarious. It'll be worth it, trust me!:P

  4. I love that polish too. You will have to share your Salad secrets :)

  5. Oooh that salad looks a lot like a salad I made earlier this week. :) And it was scrumptious!

    I'm your newest follower! :)

  6. My turn to come to your house for dinner!! We can sit and enjoy some Malibu too! :)

    1. Sounds like a plan!!! I'll have to buy a new bottle (or 2) before then though :)

    2. Hahahah!! 2 would probably be good :) Kind of like when I say I need a drink....or 5. :)

  7. Love, love that nail color. Wish it had come in my Birchbox! Also that salad looks delicious. And I never knew that about green onions...that's amazing! Popping over From My Grey Desk. Have a lovely weekend!

  8. Oh my gosh, that salad looks so good! I didn't know about the onions either. My daughter is addicted to Pinterest and is always showing me something she found. I need to look on there a lot more!

  9. i like seeing new salad recipes. it encourages my "be healthy" attitude!
