High Five for Friday: Vol. 4

Wow, I never realized how amazing link-ups are for meeting new people! If you are coming to visit me from From My Grey Desk, thank you for stopping by!

So we're staring Friday in the face again. YAY. Here's what helped me through the past week:

1) Green smoothies. I decided to jump on the bandwagon and y'all, people aren't lying- they ARE good and you CAN'T taste the spinach! I have been using a cut banana, several cut strawberries, honey vanilla yogurt, and a handful of spinach. Blend til smooth, refrigerate overnight if you aren't a morning person, and drink on your way to work the next day. So easy and lots of vitamins.

Before and after. And I know you are jealous of my 1980s laminate countertops. Moving is definitely in our future!

2) Flowers! I stopped and bought a ton for a retirement party at work on Wednesday and I am enjoying some of the leftovers on my desk. If you're interested in what event planning is really like, I want to do a "day in the life" post next week!

Front seat floor and back seat floor... I took a lot of Kroger's inventory that morning.

3) PB&J. I went through at least ten years of life saying that I hated PB&J because I hated jelly. Sometime in the past seven years I decided to try it again and I weirdly love it and crave it. Nothing says professional like making PB&J with a plastic knife at your desk.

Just keeping the good stuff at my desk...

4) Amazing weather. Texas is hot, y'all. People were wearing shorts and doing their Christmas shopping this year. This week has been L-O-V-E-L-Y and I am looking forward to spending some time outside this weekend playing with the dog or brunching on a patio.


5) New Girl. Seriously, I love this show and I would gladly move in with Nick, Jess, Schmidt, and Winston and learn to play True American. It took a while to grow on me but now it's one of the few things that my husband and I actually watch the night it comes on.

There's my five... what are yours? Have a great weekend!


  1. Hi Lauren!
    I am going to have to try your smoothie recipe...I am been "thinking" of getting on the band wagon myself! And YES...I {heart} the New Girl, True American - the best!

  3. I'm def gonna have to try that smoothie recipe! Thanks for sharing.
    Stopping by from the link up :)

  4. Ahahaha "nothing says professional like making pb&j with a plastic knife at your desk." That's hilarious. Also because one of my coworkers did that today, and another one was talking about her pb&j craving.

    I can't wrap my head around your weather in Texas since it has snowed every day this week here in Ohio. But it's ok, because I'm a weird winter loving freak.

  5. I love those kind of smoothies!
    I am jealous of your weather. I just drove an hour in snow in March, and I am over it :)
    hope you've had a great weekend!
