Andddd, we’re BACK! Back with another edition of 5 On Friday, that is…
I don’t know about any of you, but this week flew by for me. I don’t know if it’s because I had off, or if I was just really busy, but I’m glad it’s Friday all the same!
Let’s get on with the show…!
1.Last weekend, we headed to our friend’s house for a totally amazing Super Bowl party. She really went all out after she decided last-minute to have people over. We are talking a full spread of food (probably enough for a small army of people), decorations and more beverages than a liquor store. See also: I was not complaining one bit! I made sure to get a long workout in that morning, so I could fully indulge. Potato skins, jalapeño poppers, queso, mac-and-cheese bites, homemade salsa and hummus, veggies…I mean – it just was never ending. Every terrible-for-you-football-food was served. Adios football season, see you again in August!
2. I read on Kelsey’s blog earlier this week that Starbucks makes a drink for people who are sick. It’s part of their secret menu and dubbed – “The Coldbuster”. I thought I had FOR SURE outsmarted the cold that seems to be going around, but I woke up Tuesday feeling a bit BLEH, so I headed out to grab one. Holy shit – those drinks are life changing. I’m not a huge bandwagon type of gal, but if you’re sick, I cannot say enough good things about them. I took the shot of peppermint, too!
3. I created a Twitter poll earlier this week asking what people would prefer in a free download – 5 stock photos to use or a checklist to help with phone photography? I’m still trying to decide what I want to offer, so if you are leaning one way or the other – help a girl out and let me know!
4. We are in the midst of planning our next big trip this summer and I really can’t freaking wait! It’s already been two years since we visited Thailand (all my trip posts can be found here) and we are both itching to get out of the country again. Stay tuned for more trip details…!
5. And last…can we talk about the state of Twitter? I mean, I’m to the point where I can barely log on without hatred just spewing from the cracks of “Tweets You May Have Missed”. I don’t know if it’s because I wake up 5 hours after the east coast or what — but come the hell on! Feel free to disagree with someone, but to what end does your name calling, bashing and general hatred make you a better person? I don’t know…Is anyone else feeling this way?
I whipped up these gluten & dairy free rainbow pop-tarts yesterday and they were SO EASY! Be sure to come back to the blog next week for all the details on how to make your own 🙂
Happy weekend, everyone! What are your plans?
