5 Things Friday: #3

TGIF! We made it! Today was not a great day for me overall...so it's a good thing its time for 5 Things Friday. Otherwise you'd be getting a pretty crabby post from me.

Here we go - 5 things I'm loving this week.

1) Oatmeal - every which way! I could eat oatmeal for every meal. There are so many ways to prepare it and dress it up. Delicious and filling.
With mashed banana, flax, peanut butter, and maple syrup. Mmm!


Overnight chia oats eaten straight out of the fridge

Crockpot oatmeal with coconut oil. Doesn't look pretty but I assure you it tasted great!
2) Iced coffee - I'm not sure there's anything I love more than iced coffee on a hot day! And I'm spoiled, working within walking distance to a handful of great little coffee shops and bakeries. My wallet doesn't love the iced coffee habit though...

3) Friday night dinners out with the fam - What a great way to end the week! And today in particular, I really needed this. I pulled in the driveway after picking up the kids, daddy jumped in the car, and we headed straight to The Square Pub.

4) Someecards.com - This is another example of me being late to the party. I've just recently started playing with someecards.com. Basically a collection of all the things you think but never say to people! Haha.



5) theSkimm - Someone at work turned me onto this early this week.

theSkimm is the daily e-mail newsletter that gives you everything you need to start your day. We do the reading for you - across subject lines and party lines - and break it down with fresh editorial content.

I have started sitting in my card for a few minutes after I pull into the parking lot at work and reading theSkimm before starting the workday. All the news highlights I need, without the extra details I don't need - plus a little fun color commentary. Perfect. Check it out!

What are you loving this week?
