{friday 5}


Hey, Hey, Hey…it’s Friday!  I hit the ground running ready to check everything off my to-do’s.  Because, guess what?  We have another kick back weekend.  You know, the weekends where they only things you have to do, you actually want to do?  Does that make sense?  I can get used to this!  What I’m looking forward to: dinner + probably a little too much wine with girlfriends tonight.  Hiking with my homegirl.  Making it to church #homework.  Picking up my parents Saturday evening.  That’s quite possibly the highlight!

Here’s a quick run-down of 5 things on my mind today……

Free People We The Free Molly Tee

ONE – Same, right? // Proof that everything I order does NOT work out…lol.  Lisa Allen fucking failed me on this one.  How does she have that perfect bunched up front tuck?  (Not to mention, she’s tiny and I could technically eat her as my afternoon snack!)  My top came really, really cropped.  Even Bay made the comment, “who’s that shirt for”  lol.  As much as I love this print, pretty sure I shouldn’t be rockin my 36 year old belly hanging out.  Return!!!  Or maybe exchange for this Daydream Textured Long Sleeve?


  • Servings: 2
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


TWO – Totchos // Totchos, like nachos.  But, with tater tots.  Piled high with all the toppings.  I’m not going to lie, these are straight up dangerous.  It’s impossible to not dig in once you pull them out of the oven.  I originally made these for Bay last Friday night, but couldn’t resist.  To die for!  And super easy.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • tater tots
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onions sliced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup olives, sliced
  • cilantro
  • hot sauce
  • sour cream

Here’s what you’ll do:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Spread tater tots on baking sheet at bake for 20-25 minutes.  Give them a good shake about 1/2 way though.

Sprinkle cooked tots with shredded cheese and stick under the broiler till cheese is melted and bubbly.  About 3 minutes.

Pile on the toppings.  I had some leftover turkey taco meat that I added.  And I also added sliced radishes on “my side” because Bay said eww.  Ha!

Set baking sheet on the table and dig in!


THREE – The Parental’s // Today marks 7 days they’ve been gone.  Whoopin it up, Cabo style.  They deserve this vacay more than anybody I know.  I know this, because, this week was eye-opening.  As a single parent, these two above, they make my life so much easier.  So many times I would have picked up the phone and called mom or dad to save the day and rescue me.  And I couldn’t.  Which makes me forever grateful for all they do for us!  Pick-up’s.  Drop-off’s.  Favors.  Listening ear.  They always, without a doubt pick up the phone.  They are my tribe.  My people.  And I’m so fucking ready for them to come home 🙂



FOUR – PLAY! By Sephora // Back in August I subscribed Bay to Sephora’s new subscription box.  Each month you the new hot products in trial sizes.  It’s $10/month and free shipping.  Bay got her second box this week and I’ve already raided it to see what I wanted to try….

The Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primeris amazing.  It hydrates and brightens.  I stole this the day Bay opened her box.  She doesn’t need it anyway, she’s 12 🙂 NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil (color tamed) is such a pretty nude color.  I’m not a big lipstick gal, and this is perfect for me.  And it says you can use it on your cheeks too?  I’ll have to try it out.  PETER THOMAS ROTH Water Mineral-Rich Moisturizer I would never purchase this product, but after using the trial size, which is a pretty decent size, I’m hooked.  I need another job!

Moral of the story, try the PLAY! box, it’s really fun to try out new products you otherwise wouldn’t!
