High Five for Friday!

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today I am linking up with Lauren Elizabeth and Meet at the Barre to share what I’m loving this Friday.

This weekend I am seeing Aaron Carter in concert! I never thought that at the age of 23 I would be saying that. I was able to convince a friend to tag along, and I know we will have a blast! Thank goodness for friends that are willing to go along with all of my awesome ideas, ha!

I used to be a huge Aaron Carter fan when I was growing up, and I had those Teen Bop and Tiger Beat tear outs hung up all over my doors in my room. Does anyone else remember those?!

1. Delicious Fall Smells.

My roommate is obsessed with burning candles, and lately, she has been burning the perfect fall scents. I really like the apple crumb cake scent and pumpkin spice (surprise, surprise) scent. And, at work, people have scentsy burners, and yum! One of my coworkers has one that smells just like warm sugar cookies. Delicious. But, it does make me slightly hungry.

2. Healthy Pumpkin Dip

Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Dip

So, what I am really wondering is has pumpkin always been this popular or did Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte really amp it up a notch? Irregardless, I love pumpkin everything (minus PSL, sorry) , but I especially love healthy pumpkin treats.

This dip is delicious, and I highly recommend it! Try it out. You won’t regret it!

3. Breakfast at Work.

Today we are having breakfast at work. Every few weeks we have a cookout, but today we are switching it up with breakfast. And, I plan on pushing for breakfast more often, because it is my favorite. I would even be okay with breakfast food for lunch instead of breakfast time. *hint, hint*

4. Physical Therapy.

Well, remember when I said I had a stress fracture? I actually didn’t. I had an MRI, and it came back all clear! No hairline fractures to be found.

But, I do still have something wrong with my foot. Thankfully, my doctor referred me to the physical therapist, and I have been feeling a lot better.

5. Easy DIY Picture Frame.

DIY Picture Frame
In an attempt to be crafty, I bought a cheap picture from and decorated it with a gold Sharpie. I’m not even sure if this really counts as a DIY, but I’ll go with a yes. : ) Can any Disney fan out there spot the “hidden” object?!

I would recommend penciling out what you want to do before you start drawing on your frame!

Questions of the Day:

  • What are you looking forward to doing this weekend?
  • Would you eat breakfast for any meal? If so, what breakfast food would you want?

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend!
