Friday Five-This week's favorites

TGIF mofos. Short and sweet favorites of the week today.

I hope the work day is short and sweet too. Good Friday early dismissal?

Dear tiny 8 pound 6 ounce, purple hyacinth sniffing, ham eating, bunny hopping, Reese's peanut butter egg collecting baby Jesus: Please make this happen. Amen.
1 - Same thing for lunch all week: baked chicken and mixed greens with Colavita extra virgin olive oil. I love the shit out of that olive oil. Thanks to Lidia Bastianich for bringing it into my life.

2 - I love this, it's so true. There are too many people making themselves miserable for no reason. If something pisses you off/upsets you/makes you sad, feel that and let it go as quickly as you can. Don't make yourself miserable over something you can't control. We all get stuck on shit. Do your best to put it in a bubble and blow it away.

3 - It was great actually sitting down and having coffee and breakfast with MFD this weekend. Conundrum: I love to go out to breakfast with MFD. I love also lounging around my house on weekend mornings. One can't really do both so unless we're away or it's a birthday, we don't often make it out for breakfast that often.

4 - Nails of the week: Essie's Cocktails & Coconuts. It's not a typical color for me, and the little shiny things I see in the bottle aren't really on my nails, but it'll do for a work week neutral.

5- Reading this book is like watching Stand By Me. I finished it last night and liked it a lot.

Happy Easter! Locals, come help us with yard work. I will pay you in hugs.

  1. I'm hoping for an early dismissal today as well! I love lounging on weekends, but agree you can't do that and go out for brunch so it's usually lounging, lol.

  2. Love the nail polish color. That book is getting added to my list. Hopefully you get early dismissal so you can get out and enjoy the weekend.

  4. I love going out to breakfast too but we also rarely do it. our weekends always seem too busy for it! and love that nail color :)

  5. I really like that nail polish color, the name makes me smile! "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts..."
    I'm sick of all the negativity I see Facebook. "My life sucks, FML, I have it so bad... nobodylovesmeeverybodyhatesme..."all that complaining without an ounce of humor to offset it. Drives me insane. At least you have wifi/smartphone access to complain about your horribly shitty life. Get a grip. We aren't in Russia.

    TGIF and Hoppy Easter, Go Flyers, Boston Strong, yada yada yada

  6. Yeah!! Thanks so much for linking up and blasting it out on Twitter!!!

    Being able to lounge around and have breakfast is my most favorite thing. Usually I'm chugging coffee and shoving a bar in my mouth on my commute in. That polish color is really pretty. Essie makes the best polish IMO. Hope you have a great weekend! xoxo

  7. That happy/miserable quote is so true!

  8. I love going out for breakfast, it always tastes better when someone else cooks.

    I love Stand By Me, the book and the movie, so I wrote this book down to see if they have it in the library too.

  11. I love nude polishes! My nails are so gross right now... I'm seriously ashamed. I did two party nails on each hand... then peeled them off a day later. Sooo, basically I have painted nails and 2 naked nails on each hand. Ew.

  12. Ooh I love #2. SO true! That nude polish is pretty but I couldn't wear it. It would blend too much :)

  13. I have the same dilemmas about going out to breakfast. I love it, but also love being at home in my pajamas all morning. I generally refuse to shower if we are going out for breakfast; takes way too much time in the morning.

  14. Love that nail polish, I had been wanting to pick up a bottle of that :)

    Happy Friday!

  15. I have that polish! Love it! Maybe I need to actually put it ON my nails. They look horrendous.

    I am cracking up at the baby Jesus comment.

    Happy Friday!!!!

  16. One thing I learned in yoga that I've held on to even though I don't really go anymore: "Let go of what no longer serves you." I know I'm Mexican but I refuse to help you with your yard work. I send you lots of virtual mimosas to keep you hydrated during all that work!

  17. Love all 5 of these. EVOO is one of my favorite things, now. Need to find and buy that. Your attitude decides your life.
    Coffee at home is the best. #homeiswheretheheartis The nail neutral is perfect for me. Now my hands look better with
    paler colors and my tootsies with vibrant colors. Ordinary Grace- just the name is lovely.
    HOPPY Easter weekend to all! #spring Love your MOMMA

  18. I might just take it upon myself to leave early today. However, I do have Monday off!

  19. love all of these - that lunch looks amazing.

  20. I cannot stand when nail polish looks like it has something in the bottle and it does not show up on my nails (ahem, glitter).

    I LOVE that quote!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have Cocktails & Coconuts on my fingers right now! I love that quote. I'm gonna share it all over Facebook.I just added that book to my list!

  22. I hope he makes that happen too 1/2 day good(er) friday :D

    Im a homebody on the weekends too...I hate plans LOL

  23. Great post! I also really like that nail polish color. It's different.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You must have really good hugs. Haha! I hope y'all are having gorgeous weather like we are today. Perfect for yard work!! PS - That salad looks amazing!

  25. I'm starting to be the girl at work with the crazy polish. But everyone else around this office is so boring I have to spice it up sometime!

  26. Yes blow shit away as soon as possible but allowing human nature to have the feelings you feel. I haven't used Olive Oil much. Shape up from the winter yard work the Devil's path to a happy summer. I always see neutral polishes and think yes then go for the hot pink.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have my nails painted that exact color this week! I'm usually not drawn to neutral polish, but it's a nice change.
