Friday Five [3.4.16]

Happy Friday!!  My goodness what a long week it's been.  We started our statewide testing, which is always exhausting and I've been fighting a cold.  In fact, I've made avgolemono (Greek chicken soup) three times in the last few weeks.  It's a bowl of comfort.  But now, let's get down to this week's five:

I gave a little beauty PSA earlier this week.  I've been using a Clarisonic since Christmas and I'm completely hooked.  Paired with my beloved Erno Laszlo it's perfection.  I think their Phelityl Oil would be my necessity on a deserted island.  Well, that and maybe matches and a water filter :).  I'm still seeking the perfect eye cream and am all ears for suggestions on what you love!!

I started a new planning system this year, and it's working like a charm!  The planner I'm using is on sale now...only $3.98!!  I love it!!

Chai tea has become my new favorite afternoon treat.  Although I've always loved it, my afternoon tea is usually limited to herbal blends (read: caffeine free or I can't sleep).  That is until I discovered this decaf version.  Add a smidge of sugar and some warm milk and it's heavenly.  The other aspect of the picture lead us to.....

Bestie KP stopped by the hospital with a loving, thoughtful gift from her and dear friends PK and RM.  The lovely Alex and Ani Sacred Dove symbolizes faith and peace.  Throughout Hubby's seven weeks there it served as a reminder not only to keep the faith and a peaceful heart, but also how very lucky I am to have such an incredible support system.  This week the Unexpected Miracles Acorn was added to my collection.  Hubby is certainly a miracle, one for which I'm grateful every minute of every day, and he's as strong as an oak, too, so it's certainly fitting.

We celebrated Dr. Seuss this week with green eggs and ham for dinner.  I'd enjoy these easy baked eggs in a box, with a fox, here or there, on a boat, with a get the idea.  Make them for brunch this won't be sorry!

If you follow me on Instagram you know that Hubby and I started Fuller House last weekend.  We're slowly making our way through it.  He pretends he doesn't like it, but always seems to be chuckling and secretly watching.  Question though: was there this much adult content in the first and it just went over my head??  Maybe they figured those who watched it years ago are all now grown?  I have to admit though, I'd watch John Stamos read the phone book....

Wishing y'all terrific weekends!! Today I'm linking up with:

Happy Friday!!!


  1. I totally don't think there was as much adult content in the real show! I love the new show though and since its on Netflix, in my eyes they can do what they want haha. Those baked eggs look so delish!

    Stopping over from the linkup! Hope you can stop by my blog as well =0) Happy Friday!

  2. There definitely was NOT this much adult content in Full House. We've watched both Full House and Fuller House with our kids. Luckily, it goes over their heads, but whoa!

  3. Oh no, there was no adult content in the original Full House... you can tell that they have ramped it up a bit since most of the people watching it this time around are adults! We love it, too! Me AND the hubs (even though he pretends that he thinks it's dumb, too.)

  4. My thoughts exactly on Fuller House! I like it, but was a little surprised by it. It's cheesy for sure though! I convinced my husband to watch the first episode with us, but he wasn't interested in more. He was a huge Aunt Becky fan when he was growing up, maybe if she were on more episodes more grown men would watch!

  5. Love your new planning system and love the price of that planner too! Nope they definitely edged up Fuller House and I have to say, I didn't mind it at all...made watching it that much more fun this time around lol! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. Your hubby sounds EXACTLY like my hubby! We have been watching it together (an episode per night, I'm trying to pace myself). Each night my husband complains, but the one night I tried to watch without him he was like "HEY! What about me?!"

  7. I LOVE my clarisonic, I've been using it for years now! I've never heard of Erno Laszlo so I'll have to check that out!

    Those bracelets are such a sweet gift, I love when things have meaning behind them, enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  8. I LOVE my Clarisonic! I am going to start on Fuller House as soon as I get caught up on my DVR! I can't wait to binge watch!

  9. I still don't have a Clarisonic! What is my problem?? Your planner looks adorable :) x0x0~ Hannah (

  10. Thanks for stopping by! I have been wondering about Fuller House, I really need to get started! This is a great list, I love your Green Eggs and Ham set-up. Hope you're having a great week!


Thanks so much for buzzing by! I look forward to hearing from you!
