Friday Five

Happy Friday everyone! I am looking for another fun filled weekend. It seems lately that my weekends have been packed with events and hanging out with friends. Even though it leaves me a bit exhausted, I would not have it any other way. This weekend is no different as we are heading Saturday to enjoy the NC State Fair. I look forward to sharing pictures and stories on Monday. My goal for the fair is to finally watch a pig race. I hope you enjoy another Friday favorite post. This one features two of my current cravings that I must get my hands on ASAP.

1. Currently Craving. I have always loved Ambrosia Salad at the holidays. Yesterday, I had this crazy craving of this fluffy marshmallow salad. One serving and I know the craving would be fixed. Unfortunately, the recipe serves 12 and I don't want to waste all that food.

2. Delicious Drinks. This one hit me last weekend while we were out to eat at a Mexican resturant. Unfortunately, they did not have the makings of a Mango Margarita. I found this simple recpie on Food Network which only requires mango and Sprite. I am looking forward to making one this weekend and will report back.

3. Looking Forward To. Serial Season Two. I am thrilled that another series of Serial will be released next month. I really loved listening to the first one on long drives or when I was running. Maybe the enjoyment of a podcast will get my booty off the couch and outside for a walk! 

4. Skin Care Love. Glycolic Acid. This is one of the few pregnancy safe acne treatment ingredients. I have found my breakouts are 100% worse due to pregnancy hormones. My skincare routine has become quite minimal focusing on cleaning and spot treatment. I love using toner to help tighten and clean my pores. Glycolic acid has also been proven to help with ingrown hairs and aging spots. 

5. Happy Birthday! Yesterday was my amazing mother's birthday. I am thankful my mom and I are so close and I know she is going to be an amazing grandmother. Even though we were not able to celebrate together, I look forward to celebrating next weekend when my parents are in town. Mom was able to spend it with her mother in Georgia. I hope to visit with her sometime soon! 

What are you looking forward to this Friday? Any must-do activities for the State Fair?

  8. I never understand recipes that are for 12 people haha! I wish they would include instructions for making smaller portions because just dividing everything in half never tastes the same!

  9. I was so interested in starting serial, but never took the plunge! this may have just forced me into listening! thanks for the push! happy weekending! xox
