Five Things Friday

It’s the weekend, alleluia! Even better, it’s the start of vacation for me. I have so many little things I hope to get done (writing, reading, napping) and I’m excited to have a week off (at the beach!) to accomplish things. So for a little random post, I’m linking up to Clare’s Five Things Friday.


Five things I ate:

-Grilled gluten-free pizza topped with chicken, mushrooms and peaches. The GF crust was not the best, but the toppings were perfect.


-Salmon and asparagus at Season’s 52


-Yellow watermelon (I know I mentioned it earlier this week but we have a lot of it…)


-KIND Healthy Grains Bars- Maple Seed & Pumpkin flavor


-Avocados. At like every meal.


5 things making me happy:

-USA moving on to the knockout round of the World Cup. Also, that my office put the game on TV and everyone ate lunch together.


-Sleeping in next week. Not that I “sleep in” by any means (7:30 is late for me), but not having to get up and actually be somewhere early will be a nice treat.

-My half-birthday is on Monday. Yes, my family celebrates half birthdays. No we don’t get real presents (maybe one small thing) but we do get to pick the day’s activities. I will ride this half birthday tradition for as long as I can :)

-Beachin’ it for the week. How could this not make me happy?

-2 more weeks of my online class. For an online class it’s more work than I expected. Maybe I dislike it so much because it’s science and that’s not my forte.


5 tweets I loved:

Yup. I have to preface every picture I show my mom on Instagram with “you can’t zoom in.”

    Does yellow watermelon taste like regular watermelon?? I saw some in the store yesterday but didn’t want to buy a giant watermelon that I wouldn’t like!

    Seasons 52 is such a great restaurant. I love the smaller portions and all of the healthier options!! All of the things that make you happy sound wonderful! And that tweet from Ellen for TBT is hilarious!!! She is always funny.

      Ellen’s TBTs are always so funny! I love Seasons 52 because it has a seasonal menu and tons of gluten free options!
