Friday Five

Currently dreaming of an adorable home with a perfect front porch to park bikes on. We are currently in the first phase of house hunting (again) and I can't wait to find our forever home. This week's spring break has been amazing. The break has been just what I needed to recoup and recharge for the next few months. Hope each of you have had a great week as well! Let's get to five things this Friday. 

One. Dinner Prep. I stopped by Trader Joe's this week which is a treat because the closest one is 30+ minutes a way. I never make it to TJ's during the work week. I picked up these Frozen Mashed Potatoes which ended up being a complete score! Because I am not a mashed potatoes fan I rarely make them at home. These little frozen medallions are perfect for single servings at dinner. Just microwave and serve. Also, they are pretty healthy for you with only 90 calories per serving. Highly recommend picking some up next time your at Trader Joe's.

Two. Currently Drinking. Five Ingredient Margarita. Spring is here so you know summer is right around the corner. I'm dreaming of warm days with a skinny margarita. In previous summers, I have always grabbed pre-made drinks for the boat. I think fresh margaritas would be much better! I love that it's all fresh ingredients and I can make it with ingredients I already have in the pantry (I'd sub la croix for seltzer water). 

Three. Beauty Find. I took the time this week to have a makeup tutorial done by one of the specialists at Sephora. It was a great chance to learn more about the basics of makeup and she had great tips on how to make my foundation last all day. She recommend that I try Smashbox CC Cream. It has a great medium coverage and helps improve your skin over time.  My shade was light.

Four. Cute workout apparel. Earlier this week I shared some of my favorite barre gear. Then yesterday I was on Anthropologie's website where I found they are carrying workout gear. They truly have some cute pieces. Just be wary of your wallet.

Five. Beach Weekend. This afternoon, Joe and I are heading home for the weekend. I am looking forward to seeing my family and maybe getting a quick glimpse at the beach while we are there.

  6. That margarita looks delicious! And smashbox camera ready sounds fabulous! Xo, Stephanie

  7. Oooo, that tank is super cute. I love a good workout top!

  8. Good luck house-hunting! It can be stressful but fun. Ours happened kinda quick--we seriously put an offer in after looking at 4 houses in 1 afternoon, but we were in a time crunch.

    Thanks for linking up with us for H54F:)

  9. Love that top...I've seriously spent more on workout clothes since starting barre in August than I probably had in the past 2 years, haha!
