{friday 5}


Oh hey Friday!  Happy to meet you again.  So ready for the weekend.  But first, can we take a minute to talk about this flash back Friday photo my Mom dug up?!?!  A few things.  My hair?  My Mom is a total babe.  Benny is a spitting image of my sis.  My Dad looks like a teenager.  And we’re sitting on the deck at the cabin.  Same place I will be spending this weekend ♥  along with a lot of snow.  It’s always fun to pull up to the cabin anticipating how much snow will actually be on the ground.  I have a feeling we’ll have more than I’m ready to deal with…Ha!  Did I mention, I’m not a fan of the snow…like, at ALL!  Cheers to the weekend friends!


5 things on my mind…..


ONE – The Skinny, Skinny Margarita //  Whenever I order a marg, I always ask for a skinny, skinny marg.  Ha.  I hate sweet.  The less sugar.  The less syrup.  The more tequila….the better.  Am I right?  I want to taste what I’m drinking.  You know when you take that first sip, and you pucker up because it’s so overly sweetened?  Not havin’ it.  So, I think I invented the at home skinny, skinny marg.  Unless some other jerk already has.  But, until then, I’m claiming it!  This is like my second invention in a week!  Remember the roasted cauli rice one last week on {friday 5}?  That was mine too 🙂


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 oz Patron Silver (don’t buy the cheap crap)
  • 1/2 cup lime La Croix
  • 1 lime juiced
  • Ice
  • Margarita salt


Run the cut side of the lime along the rim of the glass.  Dip in margarita salt.

In a shaker…or yeti, like I used, combine all ingredients.  Give it a good 15 second shake.

Pour into glass + add a little more ice.


Make another 🙂

Dos margaritas!


TWO – Velvet Tank // Velvet was such a BIG deal this fall/winter.  I was all about it.  As Spring starts showing it’s pretty face, I have a feeling the trend will fade.  But, this velvet tank top wont.  I promise you will continue to see me wearing it any chance I get.  I also layered necklaces for the first time.  Did I do okay?  I’m kinda diggin it.  Now I need some long necklace options.  This one here is from Forever 21 a longgg time ago.  And it’s still alive.  Don’t hate/discriminate on F21 jewelry.  Some pieces will outlive you 🙂

THREE – Oscar Bingo //  I can’t remember a time where I enjoyed the awards season more.  The red carpet fashion.  The stars.  All the movies.  I think watching a lot of the movies that are nominated helped.  I, Tonya.  Lady Bird.  The Post.  COCO.  Wonder.  The Greatest Showman.  The Big Sick.  And just this week we crossed Darkest Hour + Roman J. Isreal, ESQ. off the list too.  Denzel Washington deserves “Best Actor In a Leading Role” for Roman J. Isreal, ESQ.  He was, as always, fantastic!

Super pumped for Sunday’s Oscar Awards.  Bay + I plan to pop some popcorn, bust out some bubbles (for me obvi) + play a friendly game of Oscar BINGO!  Check out these super cute free printable cards I found on Pizzazzerie.   Four different cards so you can play with your kiddos + company.

FOUR – 18 Things //  Yes, yes and yes.  To all 18 things.  Today, I did #5.  I didn’t unfollow accounts that made me feel less, I unfollowed all the annoying accounts (I call them this because they are not peeps I actually know).  You know when you’re tapping trough insta stories and you swipe so you don’t have to listen anymore?  Take the extra step and unfollow.  That sounds so bitchy, but really, why follow peeps that don’t make you smile, inspire, or peeps you actually really truly know + like?  #3 is on the agenda this weekend.  #11 all week and I feel fab.  #15 because it’s always right!  #17 is on my intentions for next week.  After an Edward Jones meeting yesterday…lol.  Ps…never, ever wear a turtle neck when you are talking about your finances.  I was on fire…HA!  Anyway, I saw this on pinterset and had to share.  Just a cute reminder.  I printed it and have it on my fridge as a daily reminder 🙂
