5 on Friday

Happy Friday! The first 5 day work and school week after the holidays is no joke. I thought Friday would never come and I am more than ready for the weekend. Let’s get right to 5 on Friday!


Speaking of the weekend, we are supposed to get snow! And lots of it. The latest update says 7-9 inches and with nothing to do and no where to be, we are ready for it.5 on Friday: Snow accumulation in Missouri


I’m on the hunt for a new mascara and my friend Brooke raved about Ulta’s Essence Instant Volume Boost Mascara. It seems to have good reviews and is under $5 so I’ll report back and let you know how I like it.

For Christmas I got a new blender and this week I’ve started making smoothies in the morning for the me and the boys. I was worried they wouldn’t drink it because of the color, but they’ve asked for one almost every day. Don’t you love it when you get your kids eat veggies and they don’t even know it 🙂 I haven’t been using an exact recipe, but I do a combination of fresh spinach, frozen unsweetened strawberries or mixed berries, light vanilla Greek yogurt with protein, a splash of water, and a tbsp of honey if needed. If you have any good smoothie recipes let me know!5 on Friday: Woman drinking Green Smoothie


Like a lot of other people, I’ve jumped on the de-clutering bandwagon and haven’t look backed. I tackled my side of the Master Bedroom closet yesterday and it feels so good to have it done. When I walked in there this morning to get my clothes it was so peaceful. I managed to get rid of 2 full bags of clothing and bags to donate and a small bag of trash.
