Five for Friday

Yay!  It's Friday again and I'm so happy to join in this very fun linkup with NatashaDarciApril, and Christina.

{1} Giveaway Win!!

I was so excited to win Nina's giveaway from Onli beverages!  They make all of these fun sparkling soft drink flavors and I can't wait to entertain friends next weekend with my fun treats!!  I received a lot of great goodies to use for a party, too, so I can't wait to unpack it all!  It was also my first giveaway to win, which was a little bit fun, too. :)  

{2} Lunch
So this morning when I walked into the kitchen, I saw my lunch kit out on the counter and filled with the lunch items I enjoy taking to work.  It was such a sweet help that the hubs thought to put my lunch together for me and as I sat in my office eating my carrots and string cheese, I thought of it all over again.  It definitely made me want to think of things I can do for him and others around me that may seem minor at the time, but make a big difference.

Y'all, I read about this on April's "5 for Friday" post last week and I had to check it out.  It is a daily current events email that gives you the full scoop on what is happening in the world, but all the details are written like your friend wrote them (i.e. easy for me to understand).  I have to admit reading the news and keeping up with current events is not a regular habit with me, but this email keeps me posted on what is going on in the world around me.  If you would like a daily digest of the news, I hgihgly recommend The Skimm!

{4} Crockpot Yumminess!!
So I've had this recipe on one of my boards for forever and have been wanting to make it for a while.  I mean, any combination of chicken, corn, cheese, and rice sounds like a winner in my book.  The recipe is from Southern Plate and you can find the recipe here.  We enjoyed three meals from the recipe, which was one more than we'd planned on!  I forgot to take pictures because it didn't last too long on our plates, but tomorrow I am trying this Crispy Ritz chicken recipe, so I'll try to document a little more. :)

{5} Breakfast of Champions!

This week, I have been enjoying an everything bagel thin for breakfast with a little fat free cream cheese.  The bagel is only 3 or 4 weight watcher points and a tablespoon of cream cheese is 0!!  This option has been a great way for me to get my everything bagel fix with fewer calories. :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for stopping by. :)


  1. That was so thoughtful of your hubby! I used to pack my husband's lunch before Kennedy came along. I really need to start doing it again.

  2. It's me again...I nominated you for an award. Check out my post today to see what it's all about. :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
