Five on Friday

Oh happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week and are ready for the weekend. As always, I am so ready or 5pm to come around. Since it's Friday, y'all know the routine around here. I'm sharing my five favorite things from this week. Also, it is time to celebrate because this is the 100th post on my little ol' blog! Look out for a celebratory post and giveaway next week!! 


One. Last night I went to see Alton Brown Live at DEPAC with my mom.  I started watching Alton Brown on the Food Network when I was a teenager. I loved his show Good Eats and the incorporation of chemistry behind cooking and baking. I still love his current show Cutthroat Kitchen. His show last night was just a great as Good Eats. Lots of large scale cooking experiments along with quirky songs and advice about cooking. The entire show was sold out so he has lots of foodie fans in the Triangle.

Two.  I have been keeping up with the news a lot better lately via The Skimm.  The Skimm is a daily newsletter that summarizes national news and current events in a down to earth format. Their news letters have been extra hilarious and spot on lately. I encourage everyone to sign up for their emails.

Three. In honor of National Eating Disorder Week I wrote this post. If you’re interested in learning more please lake some time to read these statistics here.

Four. Nerd Alert. I stumbled across this quote by W.E. Demming yesterday at work while researching interventions. This is what I strive for in my job daily.  It completely summarizes how I feel about the basis for making almost any decisions.

Five. Spring is only six weeks away. Last weekend gave NC a glimpse of warmer weather and I am yearning for more! Looking forward to the day I can wear dresses without tights and break out the Jack Rogers.
Who is your favorite cook? 
What are you looking forward to most this spring?



  1. I love that you went to see Alton Brown! I love just sitting down to watch food network on the weekends :)

  2. I'm still in this warmer weather phase... I refuse to break the pea coats back out even though it's below freezing in the mornings... I need the 70 degree weather to get back ASAP

  3. I really need to sign up for the Skimm. I remember reading about when it first debuted but never signed up. I TiVo the nightly news {that makes me sound like such a nerd} so I can watch it in a jif, but the Skimm is probably much more efficient, ha. Can't wait to break out the Jacks either, my metallic ones are on their last leg I'm afraid and I don't think they're going to survive another season. Not looking forward to buying a new pair and having to break them in. Have a fabulous weekend! : )

  4. Oh I wish we were going into spring! I need to check out Skimm!

  5. That is one of my favorite quotes!
