Friday's Five 2/27

It's Friday!  Does anyone else breathe a sigh of relief on Friday's because we made it through another week of winter?  Or is that just me?  I'm feeling really cooped up these days - if any of my Southern friends would like a visitor, just say the word ;)  

Anyway, a few highlights from this week!

ONE | Earth Fare
Our brand new Earth Fare opened up on Wednesday!  I don't know if you can be in love with a grocery store but I totally am.  The place is amazing.  From the organic produce to the grass fed meats to the juice bar - pure heaven.


TWO | House of Cards
What will we be doing this weekend?  Binge watching House of Cards.  Netflix released season 3 today and we have big plans to get take out and watch as many episodes as we can before we fall asleep on the couch tonight.


THREE | Yeah, Maybe
I'm all about supporting other bloggers and Joey from Hodges Podges e-book titled Yeah, Maybe is currently on sale!  It's only $1.99 through tomorrow, the 28th so check it out HERE.


FOUR | Tote Battle
I'm in need of a new tote bag for our upcoming vacation and can't decide between the Cuyana Leather Tote, J Crew Downing Tote or Madewell Transport Tote.  I'm thinking whichever one comes out to be cheapest (right now the J Crew one) because they all look exactly alike but anyone have good/bad reviews to sway me?

FIVE | Bloglovin'
I've been having so many problems with my Bloglovin' in the past couple of weeks since their updates - anyone else?  It runs beyond slow and I've been noticing that some bloggers posts don't show up until hours later.  I'm so sorry if I've missed things lately, I blame it all on Bloglovin'!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Happy Friday!! I've been having issues with bloglovin too, people's posts don't show up for hours! I'm loving that tote on the right, the color is great! That's so fun you have a vacation to look forward too :)

  2. Happy {almost} weekend, Katie!! I've had House of Cards hanging out in my queue for a while now. I really need to check it out! It's so fun to start a new show with multiple seasons to binge watch too!! Enjoy your take out and fresh new season tonight! Sounds like a pretty perfect Friday night to me. :) I hear you on being relieved to make it through another week of winter! Spring is that much closer!! We will make it, right?! ;)

  3. I've been having the worst time with Bloglovin lately too!! I think they changed something and now it doesn't show me all the posts, I have a hard time commenting from within Bloglovin and it's SO slow. Not happy about it. But... loving those totes! I think I like the second and third one best! Happy Friday!

  4. I've been having trouble with Bloglovin too! I will read a post and then come back later and it shows up again as unread... it's sooo annoying! Have fun watching House of Cards! I need to start watching that one day!

  6. I wish we had an Earth Fare here - sounds so awesome! We do have a Whole Foods that just opened up around here, so I'll take it :) All three totes are so pretty, my favorites being the 1st and the 3rd!

  7. Bloglovin has been beyond annoying since their "great update." It only marks posts "read" for me maybe half the time so my feed is so confusing! I'm with you on those totes. They are pretty similar (and all gorgeous) so I would go for the best price next! Have a great weekend!

  8. You know you're always welcome to come stay with us, in fact I'll just work on getting the hubs to decide to leave that frozen tundra behind and live outdoors down here year round ;-)

    And YES to House of Cards! Can't wait to binge watch as much as I possibly can this weekend. Now if only Orange is the New Black was released as soon as I was done with HOC lol. Happy Friday gurlie <3

  10. That grocery store looks so nice. I would get hungry every time I walked in there though haha. Those totes are all super cute but I think that I like the one in the middle the best. :-) I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

  11. I have the Madewell Zip Transport tote and absolutely love it. Have you seen the original version in real life? I thought I wanted that one and then realized it was huge. I wanted it for a day bag, so I needed something slightly smaller. The zip version has been perfect. If you're using it for vacay packing though, the full size might be best. I assume the construction and leather is the same on both - I love mine, it's starting to soften a little and looks even better.

  12. Bloglovin' has been wonky for me the past couple weeks too! Glad I'm not the only one behind on posts. Love all the totes you picked and they look so similar I would definitely go with the cheaper one. :) Happy weekend lady!

  13. I've been watching house of cards too, love it! I also like all the totes you showed but if I had to pick I'd pick the first one.

  14. bloglovin has been stressing me out...i say go with the cheapest tote :)

  15. I vote the JCrew tote! They all really do look the same! Have you checked them out in person? They may look different then? Hope you stay warm and have a great weekend!

  16. Girl you already know that I'm in total agreeance with you on House of Cards. Bring on the yummy take-out and the binge watching!!!!!!

  17. You know I love my Cuyana tote! Your Earth Fare looks a lot nicer and bigger than mine! Make sure to do Tomato Bank so you can save some $$!

  18. YUS! I just finished Orange is the new black (I know, I'm WAY behind on that one!) and I needed a new Netflix show to binge watch! I'm SOO jealous of Earth Fare! Maybe I'll make a trip your way and we can grab a juice! No but really :)

  19. Bloglovin' goes through these issues. I've been running into things as well. I keep having posts I already read popping right back up... frustrating.
    I just downloaded that book & cant wait to read it

  20. that produce aisle looks amazing. yum!!! and i love the left tote - but heck you're right. they all look the same. cheapest it is!

  21. I am so excited for House Of Cards too! Bloglovin' has been slow for me as well. I hope they get the kinks worked out soon. Have a great weekend!!

  23. My bloglovin' is doing the same thing! That or all the bloggers have run away and I just need to accept it and find new ones!

    Jump on that House of Cards! :) The J Crew tote looks lovely!

  24. YES to HOC. You'll have to try Earth Fare's curry chicken salad. I never knew I liked curry till EF and now I crave the stuff haha. Happy weekend!

  25. Ohhhhhhh those totes look fantastic! I would tell you whatever one you can get the most off with coupon codes because they are all very similar! Bloglovin is definitely very spotty that is for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love those totes and they look very similar so best price wins in my book, too. Glad you have a fun, new grocery store to shop at nearby. I am constantly wishing we had a Trader Joes because everything they sell is delish. Hope you have a great weekend and maybe get to try a new restaurant :)

  27. Love your love of grocery stores - I am the SAME way!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. bloglovin has been giving me issues as well, but it's not marking things as read and its driving me bonkers. love the look of that grocery store, wish we had one! have a great weekend :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh I'm feeling the same with bloglovin'!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Bloglovin has been a total pain lately! I've got to watch HOC because everyone has nothing but good things to say about it! Enjoy falling asleep on the couch! We'll probably be doing the same :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. That Earth Fare took forever to open! I'm so glad you have that now!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Totally with you on feeling cooped up. I'm so ready for Spring!

  33. I've been having the same trouble with Bloglovin'! It's been absolutely ridiculous. Anyways, are you specifically looking for a cognac tote? Target and Old Navy have some pretty fabulous reversible leather totes right now - I got one from ON this weekend that's blush and cognac. I'm obsessed, and at $34.95 (plus 30% off right now) you can't beat it! Hope you had a good weekend!

  34. Oh my, I wish we had an Earth Fare! And those totes are just gorgeous, I'm loving the one on the right! Hope you've had a great weekend! Xo, Stephanie
