Friday Five


One. Currently Drinking. A week of indulgent foods while on vacation in addition to a week of junk food at home while being snowed in has left me feeling bloated and just plain blah. I have read that the best way to quickly beat bloat and start feeling back to normal is to increase your water intake. The plan?  Make a big pitcher of detox water each morning to drink through out the day.


Two. Currently Loving. This week marks the end of Parks & Recreation. This show is a quirky spinoff of The Office which I have been passionately following for the past 7 years. Chris Pratt is adorably stupid in the show. Truly believably stupid. I hated to see it end but loved how they wrapped it up. {Spoiler Alert!} I loved that they hinted to Leslie or Ben becoming POTUS and that Larry became the permeant mayor of Pawnee. They were on Late Night with Seth Meyers with a final rendition of Lil' Sebastian. 


Three. Currently Reading Listening. On our drive down to Florida last week, Anna and I started listening to the book The Girl on a Train. It was very slow for the first hour of the book but quickly became interesting and kept us entertained on the long drive. The bad thing? This book is 12 hours long when listening on Audible. So we were unable to finish it on our drive. I am finishing it this week while at the gym. Another note, the narrators are British and their accents took awhile to get used to listening to. I highly recommend it if your looking for a thrilling "Gone Girl" type novel.


From Amazon: "Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost... And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?"

Four. Wishlist Worthy. This snowy week has me craving summer more than ever. Top of my wishlist? A summery dress paired with a great pair of sandals. 


Five. Snow, Snow and more Snow. This list would not be complete without mentioning the crazy weather that has blanketed NC these past two weeks. Tuesday we had 2-3 inches of snow then Thursday another storm system added 5-6 inches of snow. We lost power for most of the day yesterday (Was not expecting that!) due to trees causing down power lines. At lease one member of our family enjoyed the snow.



Hope you all have a great weekend no matter the weather in your area! I'm looking forward to getting out of the house a bit this weekend. Going a bit stir crazy in our apartment.
