Five on Friday

It's Friday, let's get to it! Here is my five favorite things from this week.

One. Tomorrow I am headed to Charlotte for a  friend's bachelorette party. I am greatly looking forward to  a huge girls night. I love going out in big cities and do not do it often enough! I am already craving Vida's skinny margarita and handmade guacamole.

Two. I have been slacking majorly with my devotions this year. Thanks to the prompting of Lent, I have found a new devotional that I love. She Reads Truth is an online community that frequently posts devotional plans online. They are on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to share inspiration daily. Honestly, being reminded through my Instagram feed about each scripture featured daily has been a great reminder.  The first part of the devotional focuses on fasting. You can read along with me here.

Three. I've been reading  Get Skinny Again by Sarah Dussault. Her book focuses on effective exercises that all include photos and are organized by a variety of goals. She also shares tips on nutrition, balance and recipes. I love that it has a ton of pictures and it is a very informative while being understandable.

Four. My new favorite find from Trader Joe's is their Curried Chicken Salad. I picked it up on a whim last weekend while browsing their salads and wraps for Joe. I am not a fan of chicken salad at all because of the large amount of mayo that is usually added. Surprising myself, I gave it a try and loved it! It has just the right amount of curry and a lot of chicken. I found a simple recipe  and I'm hoping to re-create it at home soon.

Five. I'd love for you all to celebrate this little growing blog with me. Check out the celebratory giveaway here. I'm sharing some of my favorite little things.



  1. Hi there! Glad to hear you're heading to Charlotte for the weekend! I didn't mention Vida on my post from today (about Charlotte), but I LOVE it and since it's Friday a margarita is definitely in order. Hope you have fun while you're here!

    I also just started following along with She Reads Truth and am loving it so far. Have a great weekend!

  2. I threw a bachelorette party in Charlotte for my friend Hope and it was seriously the most fun I've ever had in a weekend. We ate at Mes at the Epicenter and closed down Howl at the Moon haha, I have been craving the amazing pork belly tacos from Soul in Plaza Midwood!

  3. You're headed my way! If you want an amazing brunch check out the Terrace Cafe {they have 2 locations}...amazing red velvet waffles! We love chicken salad so I'll have to remember to check this out. I normally make it homemade and instead of using a ton of mayo I use greek yogurt w. a smidge of mayo. Have so much fun this weekend w. your girls! : )

  4. I can't wait to try that chicken salad. Trader Joe's is new in town so I love recommendations. Vida in Charlotte is so good! I'm very jealous.

  5. YAY for bachys, have so much fun! And I really want to try that TJ's salad, I like curried chicken so that sounds delish!

  6. I need to check out that curried chicken salad. I'm with you on not digging on all that mayo. Have a wonderful weekend and eat some guac for me! (Who am I kidding...I'm eating enough for the both of us tonight when I go get Mexican) hahaha
