Friday Five

Good morning, Friday!!  Last night I enjoyed a fun night with some girlfriends playing Cards Against Humanity. We enjoyed lots of indulgent treats and several bottles of wine between all of us. I brought S'mores Bars to share and they ended up being a huge hit! Be on the lookout next week for the recipe. I was able to enjoy my time with the girls without completely derailing my diet so, I'm calling it a win. The true test will be the scale on Monday. Let's get this weekend started on a good note with a few of my favorite things this Friday.

{One} Reading. This week I accepted a job as a School Psychologist with a new school system. The opportunity presented itself last month and has been such an unexpected blessing. I will be trading in an hour a commute for a twenty minute commute. In my new position, I will have the opportunity to split up my time between regular and special education students.

{Two} Munching On. Spinach Salad with Grilled Pork Tenderloin. I stepped out of my comfort zone with this one because I don't cook pork that often. I was thrilled with the way it turned out and am glad that I mixed it up from our regular chicken and fish dinner rotation. So was Joe! :)

{Three} Wishlist Worthy. Easy Antho Tees. I am slowly building my wardrobe with items that I love. My goal is to keep mainly to solid color pieces in a color way that is easily combined. Think shades of navy, white, green & pink. I have found that the few Anthropologie pieces I have seem to stay in my closet the longest since they withstand trends. This top is currently on the top of my wish list.

{Four} Currently Loving. I came across an old post by Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling which I found pretty simple yet brilliant. Everyone has had one of those days that starts on a bad note. These are simple things to do to make it a good day.

{Five} Coming Up. I'm looking forward to spending a low key weekend at home. Hoping the weather holds up so we can spend some time outside going for a hike and grilling out.

Linking up with Lauren ElizabethClareKarli & Amanda
