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.  This week I have been on a search for a good personal development book that isn't too preachy. I want to read tips on how to be more successful without making me feel awful about my life- you know what I mean?! I would greatly appreciate any personal recommendations.



{Two} Currently Eating.  As part of my partnership with Influenster, received a jar of Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread few weeks ago. This is something I would never purchase for myself especially when I am trying to eat clean. The main ingredient is sugar so it is not even pretending to be healthy.  The calories per serving is similar to peanut butter but without all the health benefits. Since I needed to give it a try, I decided to give it a go one night as a frosting for protein mug cake. It was a perfect topping for the mug cake. Now that I have given it a try it's going to work with Joe for him to enjoy with his snack. Because I know I would eat way to much if it was sitting in our pantry! 




{Three} Currently Watching.  I am thrilled that my favorite shows are back this week. My favorite being Parks and Recreation. I am a huge fan of Chris Pratt (Did you know before Parks and Rec he was on The OC for a season. I had no idea!). I am interested to see how the writers wrap up the series. 

{Four} Wishlist Worthy. This cold front has me craving sunshine and warmer weather. Since we still have months to go until summer and I am on a spending freeze I am mentally building my summer wishlist. At the top of the list this amazing suit from Anthropologie. AKA My workout motivation

{Five} Coming Up.  Speaking of warmer weather, I am headed to Florida in 4 weeks!! The National Association for School Psychologists holds a convention every year and our cohort from graduate school always try and go. This year we are lucky enough to be headed to Orlando. I don't think it will be warm enough to rock a swim suit but I am excited to break out the shorts and sandals. We will be visiting Disney while we are there. Any Disney tips or recommendations on where to eat are greatly appreciated!!
