Five for Friday: I'm sensing a theme...

Happy Friday, friends! It is an absolutely gorgeous day in the city, and it's supposed to be nice out all weekend, to boot! We had some storms and nasty humidity earlier in the week, so it's nice to have a little break from that. Especially because anyone from around here knows what's coming as summer heats up... humidity is so gross.

Anyway! Welcome to another edition of Five for Friday. It's been a while since my last one. Fridays have been busier than usual. My five things for this week have a bit of a theme that I didn't notice until just now... well, we all know what my priorities usually are, and this is pretty much proof. Check it out!


1 // I actually got myself together one morning this week and made myself a smoothie before we left the house. It was delightful! Smoothies remind me of being a kid, before smoothies were all the rage, when we just called them "blender drinks" and my mom used them as a way to get us to have a few more fruits with breakfast. C pointed out that I could have one every day if I'd just get out of bed the first time the alarm goes off.... hahahahahahahaha he's a funny one, that guy. #notgonnahappen

2 // I updated my address book since lots of friends and family have moved lately, and then got to wondering if I'm one of the few people left who actually uses a real address book? I really love mine, even if it is a bit old fashioned.

3 // It is possible that there is nothing better than sitting on the deck in the afternoon with a cold beer, listening to music and enjoying the scenery. Simple pleasures, my friends.

4 // If I have to be in the office on Friday, real coffee is a must... there are not many things I do quickly, but I will do what is necessary for coffee. C & I were in and out of Wawa in under 5 minutes this morning!

5 // My basil plant is finally growing, and I used the first of the leaves on naan pizzas last night... omg good. The scent of the basil was practically intoxicating - loved every single bite!

So, did you notice my unplanned topic for the week? I sure do love my good eats and drinks :)

So tell me...
  • What's the best thing you ate or drank this week?
  • Any big plans this weekend?
  • What's one thing you still do or use that's probably considered "old fashioned" by now?

That's cool you want to VT, I lived about 40 mins from there until I recently moved.

I really need to find a new address book. Yours is really cute.

Chelsea @ Chelsea Eats Treats said...

Sipping a beer outside in good weather has got to be one of life's best simple pleasures. Love your address book! I think I want to get one of those...

I seriously need to try to start growing a little herb garden. That pizza you made looks absolutely divine.

I'm stopping by from the link up! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

I have some fresh basil I just started growing too- pizza sounds like a great way to use it!
