{Five on Friday} 10/23/15

Woo hoo!! We made it! TGIF!!

Whew....it has been busy lately. We went on a mini-vacay last weekend to visit family and I feel like I need a vacation from that vacation. Packing and Unpacking this family of 5 is a workout in itself. We are home now and settled. We had an ear infection, strep throat and cold virus to deal with this week also. Oh.... the joys of school germs!

I am super excited because tomorrow my hubby is running in his first mud run!! He hasn't really trained or prepped for it so ya'll say a prayer. He is going to do awesome. Mud is not my kind of thing so his brother is competing with him. I will let you know how it goes. Have any of you competed in mud runs?? Did you train before or just wing it?

I thought I would share with you guys some things that I have been loving lately {Five on Friday} style!


{one} Nourish: Mind, Body and Soul



I love this book. The recipes are to die for.  I have this book displayed in my kitchen because the photos are AMAZING! It is all about delicious meals, meditating, yoga, strength training and living a nourishing life! I love the yoga section especially because I have a new found love for yoga. I have been eyeing a recipe in the book for overnight berry and chia parfait that looks like something that I would love. Christmas will be here before we know it and I think this book would make such a perfect gift for clean eaters, fitness lovers and yogis!


{two} Cover Girl Ink it



I don't know why I feel the need to share this but I HATE when eyeliner smears down my face. There is nothing worse than looking in the mirror and seeing a black shadow under your eye from your makeup not staying in place. I have tried A LOT of different brands and this one....stays put. I'm just saying...if you are like me....and struggle with this eyeliner smear problem...try this one out and let me know what you think.

{three} Toms Deodorant



I LOVE LaVanilla Healthy deodorant. It is the best "healthy" deodorant that I have tried. BUT the other day (while on vacation) I ran out and of course the only thing near me was a grocery store and the best thing they had was Toms. I have used it for a few days now and I like it. I don't love it but if you are in a pinch or if you need something that you can easily have access too...this stuff works!

{four} Built In with bookshelves



Ya'll....don't ever attempt to do a HUGE carpentry project when you have 3 small children and a super busy husband. This project that I thought would take a month has taken a couple months and we still are not finished. We are making progress but I wanted to show you where we are now. The main mantle/fireplace part is almost complete. All that is left is to move the bookshelf pieces in, tile the surround, install the fireplace, paint, caulk, paint some more....ugh. Okay....so there is still a lot to do but anywho...I think it is going to look great IF we ever finish!

{five} Immaculate


Why hasn't anyone told me about this stuff?? No preservatives, GMO free, very few ingredients and everything they make is delicious! I have used their cake mix and tried a few of their flavors of cookies. I am never making homemade chocolate chip cookies again. These taste AWESOME and they only have a handful of ingredients. All you do is place them on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or so. My kids are obsessed!! Well...maybe I am too. Everyone needs a cookie every now and then!



Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!
