friday five: january 17

Happy Friday y'all!!!  So its been one of those weeks where I feel like my pet peeves are popping up everywhere. I really had thought about posting my top five pet peeves....but thought that might seem to negative! I might think about it and do it in the future...I also want to be sure I pick my best top five pet peeves. :) So I'm just going to do a standard five on Friday!

one. I went to a Barre Fusion class at the Harris YMCA this week and loved it! I liked it a lot better than the last barre class I went to.  I may have find the right place for me! It wasn't super easy, but not too hard. It was more balance and yoga/ballet than the last class. Gotta keep up with my new year goals!

two. I'm getting so excited about the Olympics. Last night we watched a show on the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan scandal from 20 years ago. I can't believe I'm old enough to remember something that was 20 years ago! I'm ready to see some ice skating this February!

three. Another goal for 2014 was to cook more, which I have been successful at this week! I tried this recipe that I found on Julia's blog. I really liked it!

four. Charlotte's Queens Feast (aka restaurant week) starts today.  We don't have reservations anywhere yet, but might try to make some for next week.  Its a great way to try a new restaurant or new menu item!

five. Shameless plug. Be sure to check out my new Etsy store! And I've added new items to my website as well.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!! We have very little planned which I'm looking forward to.


  1. I LOVE barre...once you do it enough, I think you'll find yourself addicted. I too remember the Tonya/Nancy thing...and man, talk about a shameless plug for them! Why the need for the publicity all these years later? Oh yeah, Tonya's a broke loser now. And what do you do when you're broke? Write a book of course. LOL. Anyway...going to check out your Etsy shop!


  2. Barre has always intimidated me! All those fit SAHM's! Glad to hear you liked it!
