high five it’s friday


Hey hey friends and happy Friday! I’m looking forward to the weekend even though I’ll be waking up at the crack of dawn tomorrow to get my son to his indoor soccer practice………the things we do for our kids. Let’s hope an early Saturday wake-up call will make for a productive day! It’ll probably just mean an early bedtime. Ha!

Let’s jump right into the Friday five!

1. I shared this photo on Instagram recently and a bunch of you all asked about the app I used to create the blur in the photo.
I used the Big Lens app. It’s easy to use and great for blocking out the noise you don’t want cluttering up your photo. It’s worth every bit of $.99.

2. I’m slightly obsessed with these initial crewneck sweatshirts from Kate Spade Saturday, but $95 for a sweatshirt seems a little ridic to me. I’m thinking this would be an easy diy…………so stay tuned.
3. For my paleo peeps, if you don’t already have this cookbook, Every Last Crumb, from Brittney Angell you need to get it like yesterday!
The recipes in this book are legit! I’m talking waffles, biscuits and cinnamon rolls! It’s like paleo food heaven; but honestly, it’s not all sweets. There are some good meal recipes in it too. I made the clam chowder recipe switching the clams for crabs and oysters, and oh my word was it delish!

I might make it again this weekend!
4.Speaking of cookbooks, this week’s quick tip makes finding my favorite recipes a breeze. You can use a label maker to make your own tabs or just buy them at your local office supply store.

5. Last but not least, Valentine’s Day is coming soon and this is what I’m planning to get my guy.
We don’t do extravagant gifts for Valentine’s Day; and we aren’t the lovey-dovey type. We’re more of the sarcastic shut-your-mouth-when-you’re-talking-to-me type, so this is basically the perfect gift. 😉 I might fill it with some chocolates…..you know a little sweet with a little sass. Ha! What are you all planning to give your Valentine?
Have a great weekend peeps! I’m starting a new series tomorrow, and I’d love for you to stop by to check it out!
