Friday Five

Hello cold front! I hope you all are bundled up and keeping warm today. I am not a cold weather girl at all. All I wish is that there was a little snow to go with this cold weather. I am sure we will se some by the end of winter! Let's get this Friday started with five of my favorite things this week.

{One} Currently Reading. Yes Please by Amy Poehler. My waiting patiently at the library wait list has paid off and I have a one week digital copy of the book. So I have been tearing through this book every evening before I go to bed. A quick summary from Amazon-   "Full of the comedic skill that makes us all love Amy, Yes Please is a rich and varied collection of stories, lists, poetry (Plastic Surgery Haiku, to be specific), photographs, mantras and advice. With chapters like "Treat Your Career Like a Bad Boyfriend," "Plain Girl Versus the Demon" and "The Robots Will Kill Us All" Yes Please will make you think as much as it will make you laugh. Honest, personal, real, and righteous, Yes Please is full of words to live by."

{Two} Currently Eating.  Joe and I started the New years off with a resolution to eat clean. I had planned on following the diet plan that comes with the 21 Day Fix and Joe decided to join in and be supportive. For dinner this week, I made Baked Ziti with whole wheat pasta and ground turkey. It was a huge hit with both of us!

{Three} Currently Watching.  Netflix, Netflix and more Netflix. While at the gym, I have been catching up on missed episodes of Friends on the treadmill. I never watched the entire series before so I've been watching them while on the treadmill which makes the time fly by! 

{Four} Currently Loving.  This week I shared about my latest Stitch Fix box and my tips for Pure Barre newbies. As always I am LOVING Pure Barre and am looking forward to seeing my strength and flexibility grow this year. Also, you can't go wrong with clothing chosen specifically for you delivered to your door every month. I love being able to try on things in the comfort of home. You can check out these posts below if you missed them! 


{Five} Coming Up.  I am looking forward to reading and relaxing this weekend. The weather is not looking too good for spending time outside so I am planning a fun indoors date night for us Saturday night! 

Any ideas for an unique date night?

Linking up with Lauren ElizabethClareKarliAmanda & April .
