. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High Five for Friday

October 11, 2012

High Five for Friday

sweater: jcpenny (really old)  leggings: target   boots: dsw  

1.  This is my ideal weekend outfit.
Leggings, long sweatshirt, scarf and boots.

2. Today in school I asked a student if he had an assignment in his desk.
"I'm 100% sure I don't have it and 50% sure I do."
Shoot.  We really need to work on our math.

3. I made these snickerdoodle brownies this week and thought they were really good. 
I told Chris I was also going to make beer bread that night for our small group.



I gave a brownie to Chris to taste and after he ate it, he said, 
 "Oh, is this the beer bread?"

"Um. Really? Did it taste like beer? because those are brownies."

"Oh.  So what goes on top of this? Frosting?"

"Nope. That is it."

So if you want something that apparently can be mistaken for beer bread, or that feels like it is lacking even more sugar, make these.  

BUT I at least thought they were really good. 

4.  If you haven't done so yet, you should enter to win one of these beautiful nursing covers.
One of my sponsors and friend Jen is giving away one to a lucky reader.
Enter here!



5.  I can't believe I forgot to share this last Friday.



Two weekends ago we went downtown to visit some good friends of ours and they live in a condo right by Navy Pier and Lake Michigan.  While we were there we got to see a movie being filmed and there were motorcycle chases, helicopters and a man dangling from one right outside their window. 
It was really cool to watch!


Hope you have a great weekend!


Pin It!

Ha! So I seriously laughed so hard that I blew snot out my nose when I read the parts about your student and the part about the brownies/beer bread. My husband thought I was crazy... Maybe that too much information, but thats the hardest I have laughed all week!!!

Cute outfit!!
I wonder what movie was being shot?? I was at a girlfriend's apartment last night in Lakeview and we saw a ton of movie trailers -- I wonder if it was the same movie??
Isn’t That Charming.

Sarah said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Wow I can't believe they can fly that helicopter so close to the building. Yikes! I totally understand about the brownies. My 13 yr olds say stuff like that all the time. Are these blueberry muffins? Do they LOOK like blueberry muffins? (They were cinnamon streusel.)

Megan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates
