Five Things to Friday

For some reason this week has left me uninspired. Maybe it's because I spent the first few days of the week sick, or maybe it's because I am avoiding all retail sites in order to prevent me from making any online purchases.  I constantly have my husband's voice in my head

"Want what you have, and have what you need."

Damn him for being so practical...and so right. But it doesn't stop me from wanting those fabulous Isola sandals Katie blogged about yesterday! Man I want those sandals. Then again, there is always something I want. Say it again, "Want what you have, and have what you need."

Anyway, back to today's post, I'm calling it "Five Things to Friday". Nothing fancy about this post, just something for each day of my week (including today). Let me know your thoughts on this kind of post...maybe we will make it an ongoing series.

Monday- I forgot how much I like Ginger Ale. What's your go-to-beverage when you are sick?

Tuesday- During my "sick time" I caught up on Real Housewives of NYC. I am now determined to find out who makes the necklace in this photo. It's like Angela Caputi, but bigger. And bigger is always better! I promise to report back on its designer. This could take some digging.

Wednesday- Remember my post a few weeks back about imperfection. Well, here is just another example of my own imperfection. The Mini Fashionista and I baked a cake for my father-in-law's birthday. It was an epic fail. Delicious, but not so pretty!

Thursday- Thursday afternoon I baked up a batch of tasty homemade granola. I used this barre3 recipe. There is nothing better than homemade granola! Thow it in some milk or yogurt, add some fruit and you have a great breakfast or snack! Yum!

Friday- Tonight I will be attending the Grand Opening of a new barre3 studio here in Portland. This will be the 4th studio in Portland and another will be opening next year! Besides new studios in Portland, there are barre3 studios popping up all over the country.

Laguna Niguel, CA is opening April 14th and San Jose, CA is opening April 21st. Studios will also soon be opening in Tuscon and Scottsdale, AZ, Nashville, TN, Raleigh, NC, Columbia, SC and so many others. You can check out all the studio locations here.

Happy Weekend!
