Five on Friday 3/7

TGIF!  This has been a long week and I'm so happy to see it come to an end.  Nick was out of town all week for a business trip and things are always so lonely without him around!  He got home last night and everything is right in my world again :)

+ I know we are 10 months behind with this, but we just finished watching Breaking Bad!  Wow, what a crazy ride that show was.  Beyond sad that it's over.  Apparently the BB writers are creating a spin-off show called "Better Cal Saul" that is going to be a prequel to Breaking Bad and focus on Saul Goodman, the crazy lawyer.  I guess the actors that play Jessee and Walter are interested in joining.. I'm sure it won't be anything compared to BB but I still can't wait for it to premier this fall!


+ I mentioned yesterday that I gave up cheese for Lent - this is going to be so hard for me!  I LOVE cheese, it's basically a food group in my house.  Since making this decision, I've realized that most of my recipes involve cheese sooo if you have any delicious cheese-free recipes, please share!  Only 38 more days to go!


+ Pretty much drooling over this watch.  It's gorgeous!  I just got a silver MK watch for Christmas but I wear it so much that I think I can justify having one in both colors ;)


+ Oil pulling... has anyone heard of this?  Check out this article to see what it is all about.  I have some coconut oil that I may try it with.. but would love to hear any of your thoughts before I go swishing the stuff around in my mouth for 20 minutes!  Seriously, check out the article!



+ I'm so excited for the weekend!  I have to work Friday night but then have ALL DAY Saturday and Sunday off- wooooohoo!  We are celebrating this girls birthday on Saturday night so it should be a fun weekend with friends :)  Oh, and the season finale of True Detective is on Sunday.. if you aren't watching that show, start NOW!  It's on HBO with Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.. who is on fire right now.  So happy he won the Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club and I loved his speech.  Basically it's going to be a great weekend!


Happy Friday!

  5. Breaking Bad is just the best show ever and I have yet to find anything to replace it. Boo. I saw an article on oil pulling the other day and really want to try it but am also totally afraid it will make me gag. Let me know if you try it! And I have totally been eyeing that watch so I think it is totally a good purchase! If you have silver, then you also need gold! Two different things! Happy weekend!

  6. I've tried oil pulling actually. I did it with sesame seed oil and not coconut oil. I actually wrote a blog post about it, you'll have to search oil pulling to find it! But I stopped, it was hard for me to stomach haha. I even asked my dentist about it and he had never heard of it! Have a fun weekend with no work!

  9. LOVE Breaking Bad! We were super behind the craze as well and finished it about a month or two ago. Love it! I'm crossing my fingers that the spin-off happens! And I've definitely heard of oil pulling! I chuckled when I read your post because I have had coconut oil in my cupboard for the longest time for the sole purpose of starting oil pulling. I've heard it does amazing this for your teeth and overall health! I'm on board! xo

  10. Loved BB! I want to check out the prequel too! Has to be good. I've hear about the oil pulling too... And am tempted to give it a shot.

  11. Finishing Breaking Bad was like the best and worst thing that ever happened to me. I don't think any other show will ever compare. I am loving True Detective also though! I'm intrigued by the oil pulling thing. I'll usually try anything once, so I might give it a go just to see what the hype is about. Enjoy your weekend!

  12. Love the watch and your wedding dress is gorgeous!

  13. We're totally going to have to re-watch all of BB in a year or two. Such an amazing show. You'll hate me next week because I'm doing a pretty cheesy recipe post (save it for after Lent!?). My husband is obsessed with True Detective so I watch it but I feel like it's so slow a lot of the time? Must. Focus. More. Ha have a great weekend :)

  16. Ah! I just read the oil pulling article last night and tried it first thing this morning! Honestly, it was weird and a bit difficult... but I just tried to distract myself on the computer and I made it the whole 20 minutes. I'm going to stick with it because the benefits sound amazing and I have to see if it's real! :) I hope you try it too!
    Have an awesome weekend!!
    xo Always, Abby

  20. Love love that watch!! MK watches are always gorgeous! I think we might need to get on the Breaking Bad bandwagon, everyone is talking about it!

  21. I still need to jump on the BB train. My husband watched it and was OBSESSED. What's all the hype about???
    GIRL, you gave up cheese for Lent?? You are a brave soul!

    ReplyDelete
  22. How did you like the ending?? I was kinda sad how it all ended. (Trying not to spoil it for anyone who hasnt finished lol) I just received my first nice watch for my birthday last week and now I am obsessed with them! That one is super cute! Hope you have a great weekend!

  23. That watch, I like! Have an amazing weekend!

  24. Cheese is my favorite food! I actually cut back on dairy last year, and cheese was the hardest thing to let go of :( I feel for you!

    My husband tried the oil pulling thing and he said it felt like it worked, but it just takes such a long time!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I read about that oil pulling too and I think I'm going to try it. I mean, it can't hurt, right? :-)

  27. I tried the oil pulling thing for a few days... but it's SO LONG you have to swish & I have such an easy gag reflex.... so I had a hard time doing it & then just gave up.
    I can't wait for Call Saul!!! I love him in the show anyways. I just want a Pinkman cameo!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I never got into Breaking Bad - I tried, I did, it was on my 32 while 32 list but I just wasn't interested.

    Good luck with the cheese thing, that's not a bad thing to give up because it would be hard!

    Oh and what do you do for your job if you don't mind me asking? Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know I have said this a dozen times but your friends are so BEAUTIFUL!! Like you!! Oil pulling -- where do you get this stuff?... JK! :) And did I make this up or are you Italian-- and then how do you give up cheese??

    ReplyDelete
  30. OH MY GOSH! I am so excited about the Breaking Bad prequel! My husband and I just finished the series as well and I was so sad it was over! Now I can look forward to that! Thanks for the heads up on it! Have a great weekend! Pamela @ A Little Glitter

  37. I make a lot of cheese-free recipes that are also vegan accidentally. Stir fry is my favorite, as is a lot of Asian food, because it's cheese free, plus easy to add meat if you want to :)

    1. Oooh we love stir fry over here. I'm probably going to make it this week!

  39. Loving that watch! And am SO curious about oil pulling now. Had never heard of it until I read it on your blog today, but am now wondering why I haven't heard of it before. It sounds amazing!!! Please update us if you try it. In the meantime, I am off to buy some coconut oil:)

  40. I haven't jumped on the breaking bad bandwagon yet but think I need to. And my husband started true detective and is in love. I need to check that out too. I really need to learn more about oil pulling- it sounds pretty bad ass

  41. I am in the middle of Breaking Bad, so I'm even farther behind than you are! I cannot imagine giving up cheese, you're amazing girl! Also... oil pulling sounds super interesting. I would be interested to talk to my dentist about it.

  42. Oh my goodness. Breaking Bad? Coconut oil? My ears just perked up. I love BB and kind of use coconut oil for everything...and now...oil pulling? Please let us know your results!!!

  43. That watch is gorgeous!! And I like cheese, probably a little too much, too. I have been trying to use it a little less lately--sometimes, like with eggs and meat that I would normally top with cheese, a little salt helps them still taste good! I think what I love most about cheese is the saltiness, really.

  44. I hate when Robert has to travel for work. Glad your hubby is home! Hope you've had a great weekend!!
