Oh my loves, it is ALMOST finally Friday. Today is Friday eve. Little Friday. You get the point. This week has been exhausting to say the least. Work is killing me. I need a raise. I'm thinking of going on strike. Moving on. It's almost time for two of my favorite link up's around: high five for Friday and five on a Friday. I like this because I like to share 5 randoms from my week that I want to write about. Lets gets started, shall we?
Starbucks. I am not a Starbucks junkie. I don't like coffee and a lot of times their drinks have too many calories and sugar. I'd rather eat my calories (unless its wine), ya know? However, I will admit that I do like their lemon cake. I think all of us can agree we would splurge for a Pumpkin Spice latte in the fall, too. But aside from those special occasions I stay away. I was reading everyones weekend shannies on Monday and I saw someone talk about Starbucks new "Orange refresher". It sounded delicious. I checked it out and a grande only has 90 little calories. I thought "I will have to try that". So on my lunch hour I was running 14 different errands with the top down (having a convertible in the summer isn't all fun and great, it's quite miserable) and I was really thirsty. I drove over to Starbucks and ordered one of those babies. YUM! I loved it. It wasn't that sweet; it did not taste like it had all of this sugar in it. It tasted quite natural. If you like orange, go try one.
Oatmeal. I eat oatmeal every day. It gets so boring. But it's good carbs. They are complex carbohydrates that your body NEEDS and uses for energy and doesn't store into fat. Got that?! If you
My WEIGHT LOSS power smoothie. I have one of these every single day of my life. These make me feel so energized, healthy, and somewhat like superwoman. I feel "clean" drinking one of these and it's really helping me get healthy and lose weight. Plus, I get to drink my veggies. I don't particularly enjoy eating veggies so being able to drink them and not really taste them is great.
Lastly. this hot mess house. You guys I have got to get with the program. I have never been on Pinterest but I think I am going to force myself to try and get crafty and DOMESTIC this weekend. I want to organize and decorate and make my home like those featured in the southern magazines where you are afraid to touch anything because it's so perfect. I'm just showing your parts of my living room and kitchen. That's the starting point.
