Five on Friday 3/14


You guys, I am tired.  This springing forward thing has really messed me up, way more than usual.  This week has felt like one really long drawn out day.  I need the weekend!  I've really gotta pull it together though because I will not be getting any sort of rest over the next couple of days.  It is one of the best weekends to be in Chicago - St. Patty's!  We take the Irish holiday very seriously here in Chicago and with Nicks cousins and lots of friends in town, we will be celebrating all weekend long!  Before all the fun gets started.. here are my five on Friday!

+ First things first, I know that lots of people don't eat meat on Fridays during Lent (myself included) so I put together a round up of my favorite meatless meals on Monday.  Check them out here!


+ J Crew is having a sale on their best shorts!  The 3 inch chino shorts are 25% off through Sunday and they rarely go on sale so make sure to stock up!  The tangerine and positano blue are on their way to me right now.  And don't forget to use your Ebates like I did :)


+ I purchased the Seche Dry Fast Top Coat this week and ohhhh my gosh.  I had seriously been missing out!  My nails were dry in minutes!  I'd highly recommend this if you are looking for a good, reasonably priced top coat.


+ I'm in the spring cleaning mood.  This time of year I just want to throw everything away, ha!  I hate clutter and have been decluttering like crazy all week.  I've cleaned out my closets, my pantry, my makeup drawer, etc.  I found this awesome checklist on Pinterest that I plan to use as my cleaning guide!


+ Lastly, a big THANK YOU to everyone that linked up with us yesterday for Thankful Thursday!  It was so great to hear about all of the blessings in everyone's life and just made for a happy day :)  We hope you will join us every Thursday!


Have a great weekend and don't drink too much green beer!

  9. Oooh loving the top coat (I needed something about $10ish to get to free shipping on my order) and the spring cleaning checklist! I feel like spring is taking its sweet time getting here, but subconsciously I think that maybe if I do some spring-y things it will hurry up! Have a super fun weekend!!!

  11. Has your nail Polish stayed on longer without chipping with the fast dry?? I'm trying to find one where my polish won't chip so fast! Spring forward messed me up too! I've been soo tired this week and all four kids are home with no school today... I'm gunna die! Lol I'm super jealous of you living in Chi Town right now... I wanna see the river turn green and parade the streets and bars... Have enough fun for the both of us!!! I wanna see pics!!

  12. I am saving that spring cleaning check-list! I started a list this week but that one is obviously way more in-depth :) My parents are coming to visit next month so I'm determined to have everything a bit more tidy before they come! I have to admit I've never been a big St. Patricks Day fan....although if I were to celebrate it somewhere Chicago would be so fun!

    1. We have it hanging on our fridge and it's so nice to be able to check things off as we do them!

  31. such a relevant post for me! I swear by the seche vite--love it, on my 3rd (4th?) bottle. word to the wise: be sure you secure it super tight after each use--it gums up pretty quickly. :/ also, get it at sally's or amazon, as it's half the cost as it is at say, target.

    I ordered me some j. crew (factory) goodness this week too. I ordered a ton of shorts at the end of last season, so I need to unpack them to see what colors I have... I honestly don't remember.

    and I LOVE the spring cleaning list. I was thinking a lot, towards the end of the week, about a spring cleaning frenzy this weekend... I scrubbed the kitchen down completely today, but yeah... the other stuff? not so much. hoping to get on it tomorrow. have a great rest of your weekend! ;) xo
