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!


High Five for Friday!

Happy Friday, everyone!

After work, I’m heading home for the weekend. I have some fun things planned including reuniting with some college friends and going to the Illini game! 🙂

This week went by slower than usual for me. I’m wearing a walking cast right now, and it’s cramping my style. But, I’m determined to make next week better!

Here are five things I have enjoyed this past week!

1. This quote.

Keep not settling.

I found this quote back in February one day, and it has resonated with me ever since. Think about it. Don’t settle!

2. The changing seasons (Hello Fall!).

While driving home from work yesterday, I noticed some of the leaves are starting to change colors! I can’t wait for fall weather, apple orchards, pumpkin patches and other fall things!

3. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Perfume.

I bought the little roller ball of Nirvana White at Sephora last weekend, and I can’t stop smelling it. So. Good. When I run out of it, I’ll probably have to cave and buy the big bottle. And then, I’ll probably have to buy the Nirvana Black, so I can layer them. Mary-Kate and Ashley never truly go away. You go girls!

4. These Sperry boots.

Sperry Boots

They are so comfortable, and I’m looking forward to wearing them all fall! I think they would look great with skinny jeans, leggings and dresses with tights. Shopping for fall is always so much fun. I love layering, wearing scarves and

5. Pumpkin Spice Coffee.

Last month, I told you about the delicious s’mores coffee I found at Target. Now there is a new love in my life – Archer Farms Pumpkin Spice. I love sipping on a cup of hot pumpkin spice coffee with a little almond milk and a dash of cinnamon. This coffee is so much better than a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks!

I’m linking up with Farmer Bell, Meet at the Barre and The Lauren Elizabeth today, so be sure to check out those blogs to see what others have been up to this week! 🙂
