Five on Friday


Just a few photos from an awesome week!  The weather has been absolutely gorgeous - unseasonably warm for March in Michigan, but I am not complaining.  Our sunny temps reached 75 degrees on Tuesday so we hit up the dog park for the first time this year and got fro-yo.  It was the best and has me so anxious for the official start to spring.  8 days!  

What do you guys have planned for the weekend?  We're trying a new pizza place and then hoping to get in a couple more House of Cards episodes tonight and tomorrow we're trucking over to the other side of the state to see Nick's family.  Hope you all have some fun plans ahead!

to do
Grab a Peach Green Tea Lemonade from Starbucks - they're back!
Wash your makeup brushes.  Blah, I know, but this mat makes it super, super easy.
Make these spicy shrimp tacos with garlic cilantro slaw because they look amaze.
Change your clocks, we're springing forward one hour!
Call a friend, just to say hi.

    1. And to add onto my comment-does the scrub irritate your skin-I know we've discussed this at length in emails, so I'm just wondering if it makes it dry and break out!

    PS I started using the 25 minute strategy you posted about this week (I am actually doing it right now to try and not get as distracted while reading blog posts), and it seems to be working really well. Thanks!

  31. Ahhhhhhh Cadbury eggs. Yum. Delish. Happiness.

    Seriously jealous of those temps. It's been raining for the last two weeks and it's been like 53, tops. Chilly, wet, foggy. I love rain, but holy crap.

    Mmm. Shrimp tacos are amazing. I make them fairly often but I do them differently. Might have to try that recipe out!
