Five on Friday

Friday, January 16, 2015

I am so thankful it's Friday! This week has been crazy - Stephen's been working and traveling and I was on late night airport pickup duty Wednesday night. Stephen will more than likely work this weekend so it'll be nice to relax and sleep in but I'm ready for a normal weekend again. Onto this week's 5!

This is going to be a long one - if you follow me on this story, I applaud you but I don't blame you if you skip to my last four items. Before Christmas, Stephen and I went to the outlets and the Kate Spade store was having 50% off the entire store and an extra 20% off bags. I found the most amazing pink purse and it was on sale for $88! I'm crazy and didn't buy it - I know I'm crazy but I didn't NEED a new purse so I didn't get it. Later that day, I regretted that decision and Stephen even thought about going to get it for me as a gift (so sweet!) but we were trying to be more strategic this year with Christmas gifts and so he followed along with the plan and didn't get it. Well, it's been a couple of weeks and I'm still kicking myself for that decision. This weekend the Kate Spade outlet is having 40% off the store and 20% off clearance - not as good but it's better than nothing! I'm going to run by there on Saturday since Stephen's working and see what I can find! Phew sorry for that long drawn out story...

I want to be serious about my health and making sure I'm exercising. Last year, I tried this plank challenge and got through about Day 5 before forgetting and never doing it again. I've decided to give it another shot and so I printed it out and posted it on the fridge. This way, I always see it and can mark it off when I finish a day. I'm going to try to start it Monday so we'll see what my success rate is this go round.

I've finally settled on a devotional and marriage book. I scoured the shelves of my local book store and picked out Team Us by Ashleigh Slater and Live Faithfully devotional by Leyna Heitzig and Penny Rose. I'm going to talk more about these books next week :)

So I'm slightly obsessed with the show Chrisley Knows Best - please tell me I'm not alone. I just think this family is a riot! I just finished catching up on their first 2 seasons and can't wait for the third one to come on in the Spring.

If anyone needs a quick meal this weekend, I talked about this Crunchy Asian Chicken Salad earlier this week. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. Stopping by from the Five on Friday link up! I love your blog! I've been looking for a good marriage book too, will definitely be checking out Team Us. That bag is so cute! Maybe it'll still be there when you go back! Have a great weekend!

  2. I am waaaaaay obsessed with Chrisley Knows Best ... like, I get positively giddy when I see a new one on the DVR. Love them! You are not alone!

  3. This year is also a year that I want to start exercising more especially since my hernia surgery has left my muscles pretty much inactive. I want to get them fired up again. Good luck to you on your journey!
