{friday 5}

We’re doing the HAPPY FRIDAY dance today!!  Wishing you all a really rad Friday!  Now bring on the weekend!


5 things on my mind…..


ONE – Back at it // Is it just me, or did every kid activity started up this week?  Bay started Horseback riding lessons + Volleyball + 4-H…THIS WEEK!  She even snuck in some tennis with the neighbor.  I love watching her do what she loves.  But, damn, I earned my wine this week.  Ever feel like you are your kids uber driver?  Except they leave all their shit + wrapers behind and don’t leave a tip?  I did sign her up for all these activities, so I can’t complain too much.  Cheers to the Septmeber craziness!


TWO – Chop Salad // You know those days where meal prep just aint gonna happen?  But, you don’t want a shit lunch with 5 bazillion calories?  I got ya covered.  Buy a bag of chop salad.  The southwest is my fave.  Open a can of black beans.  Slice an avocado.  Grab some leftover protein from your fridge.  Chicken, ground turkey, quinoa…anything will work.  Divide between two bowls.  You can toss the dressing (I didn’t, lazy AF) and use a homemade or healthier.  Or divide the packet into two ziplocks.  And you’ve got lunch for 2 days!



Zero prep.  Or maybe, like, 5 minutes tops!

And you use up the leftovers in the fridge

Chop salads come in so many combs.  I plan to try a new one next week.  If it’s a hit, then I’ll be sure to share it with my peeps!




THREE – Table talk // Are you guys stick of reading about my table yet?  Me either 🙂

To make it a little fall-ish.  Probably as fall-ish as this table will get.  I added these super cute velvet pumpkins from the $1 bin at Target!  Go now!!  At a $1 a pop, these things will disappear in no time at all!



Velvet Pumpkins

This link is the actual pumpkins, but the wrong price.  Promise these came from the $1 bin.  Even though they look a little more like the $8 price tag.

I bought all three of these and they look so perfect with my new runner!



FOUR – Packed With Love // Even at 11 years old, Bailey still loves a good lunchbox love note ♥   I found this super cute printable that makes it a little easier.  Ha.  As if writing a lunchbox love note needs to be any more simple.  Some mornings I’m scrambling around the kitchen throwing lunches together and I just forget.  So, I’m down for anything to simply my morning and still send some lunchbox love for my girl.  Did I ever tell you the time I was cleaning out her backpack and found all the lunchbox love notes she’d saved.  I figured she tossed them out with the crust of her sandwich when she was done.  Nope!  Saved all of the.

9 notes to a sheet.  I pre-filled them out for the next 9 lunches.  Pop one in and we are set.
