Five on Friday

I have three things in life that I typically cannot stand. They are: reading books, museums, and salads. In college, I never read a single book for any class that I took (sorry dad). I went to every single class and diligently took notes and that seemed to be more than enough. And it's not like I don't like vegetables either. I love veggies and fruit. 

I enjoy reading blogs, I liked the Broad Museum in LA, and I love the strawberry poppyseed and chicken salad at Panera, but I think those may be one offs. 

So when I found a book on Amazon, read the first 10 pages on the "preview" feature, and was 100% hooked, I bought it immediately. 

To top it all off, I went to Panera and bought myself a cobb salad which is almost impossible not to like. Bacon, hard boiled eggs, and avocado? Sign me up!

I started reading Bringing Up Bébé (I am not pregnant) and absolutely adore it. I actually feel calm and relaxed reading and the book has given me so much insight on how I want to eventually parent!

Last Friday Justin and I cut the gym short and went to happy hour which quickly turned into Irish car bombs at home and eating an entire bag of carrot chips and hummus for dinner. Better than pizza, right? Ditching our normal Friday routine was much needed.

During one of my daily trips to Wegmans this week I noticed these adorable cookies that I feel like have to be Valentine's Day cookies. I am jumping for joy to see Valentine's stuff out because that means filing day for my hubs is closer and that also means our six year dativersary is around the corner (!!!!!).
While designing our kitchen, I had plenty of pinterest inspiration pictures, but there was one that really hit home. 
I loved the backsplash to the ceiling and decided to replicate it and I am now trying to decide on the wreath. 

Part of me really likes the simplicity of the backsplash, but this kitchen needs some pops of colors! Votes? 
This weekend I have one plan and that's relaxation. That includes a pedicure + Sunday lunch with my sister. I haven't gotten a pedi since her birthday last February which I find shocking myself. I also have some champagne that I really think needs to be opened...

Happy Friday friends!
