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

November 8, 2012

High Five for Friday


sweater: DIY  chambray shirt: old navy ($15)  pants: target ($13)  boots: dsw (similar)

1.  I made this heart sweater last year and am still loving it. Loving that it cost me $8 too! Check out the tutorial here


2.  When I was training for a marathon I often made smoothies and added protein powder to it, but that was the only time I ever thought about doing it.  I want to do a better job taking supplements or vitamins, plus I think just doing it would automatically make me feel healthier, right?   I'm thinking adding something like Bio-K+ supplements to a smoothie recipe like this, which I've made before, would be a good idea.  

Almonds, cooked oatmeal, bananas and yogurt meet up in your blender for a power breakfast.

3. This picture on pinterest really made my laugh this week.  
Especially with the caption:  full body sweater for when you're having one of those days.

Full-Body Sweater for when you're just having one of those days.

4.  So happy and thankful for my birthday presents this year.  You would think I must have told my family somethings that I wanted or something?  Two favorites are these necklaces.  One from my parents and one from Chris. 



5. I think I have the funniest nephew in the world.  He recently started pooping on the toilet and today he said, "Mama, I know you are excited when I poop on the toilet.  But please don't clap and cheer anymore.  Just say, 'That's correct.'


So happy I get to see his sweet face one week from tonight.

Happy Friday friends! Hope you have a great weekend.
