Five on Friday: A Sick Week

Friday, March 16, 2018

What's a sick week without some good TV and impulse Target buys? And there you have the preview for today's Five on Friday! Welcome! 

What are you up to this weekend? We have a low key weekend ahead which is always welcomed with open arms. I plan on throwing some green sprinkles on our pancakes Saturday morning and the girls have matching St. Patrick's Day shirts. Hadley is supposed to have dance class but she's fighting a little cold right now so chances are we'll skip it. Probably a few errands, maybe playing outside if we're lucky, and of course finding something yummy to eat along the way. :)

Let's hop right into it, shall we?


1. Ozark. Steve and I just finished watching the first (and only, so far) season of Ozark on Netflix and omg... intense. We both liked it though. Now we're in show withdrawal, naturally, and are open to suggestions! What have you seen and loved lately on Netflix? We're both individually picky when it comes to shows so it's hard to find something to settle in and watch together! Lay it on me!



2. Yes to Grapefruit Paper Mask. Hahahahaha. Haha. That was my first - and strongest - reaction to using my first paper mask (I know, where have I been, right?). I looked terrifying and it was slipping off of me for the entire 10 minutes. The only thing I could think about was that scene in Mrs. Doubtfire where Robin Williams dunks his face in the meringue pie and pretends it's a face mask. BUT I must say, when I took it off, my skin did feel more toned and look a little brighter! For $2.50, I figured why not! (Photo evidence might give you nightmares forever -- sorry!)


3. An alternative to La Croix. I know everyone, myself included, loves them some La Croix. I first got hooked on it when I was pregnant with Carrington since it satisfied that soda/carbonated beverage craving. Now there are so many brands, varieties, and flavors of sparkling water. Just this week I tried Target's brand "Simply Balanced" for the first time in the watermelon flavor and it's really, really good! Not too sweet at all, and the perfect flavor for summertime (which I am dreaming of).


4. A trip in the works. Steve and I are planning an overnight trip for our anniversary in May and we're probably going to go to NYC, which is only about 1 hr 45 minutes from us. We've both been there many times before but it's been a while since we've spent a good amount of time there, especially just the two of us. If you've been, what are your favorite spots for dinner, drinks, and things to do? Now taking recommendations. :)

5. Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Have so much fun in NYC! I went once back in high school but want to go again and experience it with my husband. That mask!! So funny. I can just picture it slipping off the whole time ;)

    1. LOL, I was cracking up the whole time - I couldn't help it! You definitely should make a trip back with your hubby, that would be so much fun. :) It's a pretty magical place, isn't it?

  2. The first sentence of this blog post described my week. I've had a cold all week and yesterday I bought frivolous things at Target that I didn't need!

    1. Is there any other choice when you're having a week like we did?! ;) I hope you feel better soon! These germs need to go!

  3. The face mask is a LOOK!! ;) Right there with you on Ozark - I LOVED the first season, even thought I was on edge and teeth grinding a lot haha! Can't wait for the next series - the first turned me into a real Jason Bateman fan. Think I love the fact his character just rolls with everything and always copes, no matter how ridiculously terrible the situation. Looking forward to the new season of Bosch in April - do you watch that? So with you on the easy week-end front - actually looking forward to having a couple of hours to clean this afternoon and just take stock! Have a great one - hope your household recovers soon! J x

    1. Hahaha, isn't it though?! I'll have to check out Bosch - we haven't seen that one! I thought it was fun to see Jason Bateman in a (much) more serious role. Hoping you had a great relaxing, and yet productive, weekend! XO

  4. I need to try that sparkling water. I just got some bubly water and it is really good. I loved Ozark. It was slow at times, but the season finale was sooo good. I gasped when someone was shot (don't want to spoil it for others). Like hand over the mouth and gasp. Ha.
