Five on Friday


::: 1 :::
The 2015 calendar is starting to fill up, and while it is full of great things -  I need to find a way to cope with it, take it day by day, and not be overwhelmed by it. I feel like a broken record but this blur of busyness makes me feel like life is going by too fast.

My sickness came somewhat well timed. I was due for a long booze detox and not having a strong appetite helped me keep carb potions low after so much vacation eating. We stuck to our weekly menu like pros this week and I can already feel the difference after eating properly for 5 full days

Did you see Natalie's post,  at DDBD, about her 3 day food diary? I loved it, and it made me rethink some of the stuff I've been pausing to post on here. I find myself over-thinking my "weekly menu" posts, or daily life posts, or whatever,  because I start to think, who the hell cares what we ate for dinner, but, I find the true daily posts the most interesting of all, so I'm going to try over the next few months to add more of those to my blog.

I haven't been to McDonalds in well over a year, or maybe two, and I think the only time I've stopped is for one of their ice cream cones....well, randomly I started aggressively craving a shamrock shake. I need to get my hands on one! I found this recipe online, and if it doesn't live up to the hype, I'm going to have to start a March 1st countdown.

We've got a low key weekend on the books except for Saturday. My sisters boyfriend Michael is in LA for business and is staying with us for the night. I love that he is coming to hang out with without Hannah....he earns major bonus points in my book for that!

And a good reminder before the weekend


  1. Is that cayenne pepper on your avocado toast? Looks so good! I usually just do salt and pepper!

  2. I'd love to see what y'all eat! Everything on your detox menu looks fantastic (and reminded me to make dang crabcakes already!). Happy weekend!

  3. I love seeing what other people eat! Is that a tuscan chicken cake I spy?? I need to make those again soon!

  4. I'm with you - I personally think 'who cares about what I eat' but I LOVE reading what other people are eating, ha! Can't wait for those posts :)
