Five on Friday | 6.1.17

Cheeers to the weekend! This week went by super fast - and I completely contribute that to the short week. Having Monday off was phenomenal and I snuck out a little early on Tuesday for a long overdo hair appointment.

Also, PSA - today is National Donut Day aka one of the best holidays ever invented! Tons of places are giving them out for free. 

Of course I couldn't not participate in this glorious holiday... :)

Let's get to it!

ONE // Once again, Andy nailed dinner for us this week. He grilled some deliciously marinated chicken, topped each with a slice of mozzarella cheese, avocado, and tomato - and then drizzled it with some balsamic. Healthy - yet satisfying!

TWO // Okay, how am I just getting onto the Parks and Rec train?? This show had me in actual tears last night from laughing too hard. I just can't get enough of Amy Poehler and her expressions. 

THREE // I tried a new workout class this week and celebrated with Jamba Juice after - although the protein smoothie I got sort of tasted like amoxicillin (remember that pink liquid medicine from when you were younger?!) so it was in the trash before I even finished and I swapped it out for some chips and salsa.. fair trade, right?

FOUR // On monday I prepped 6 salads for lunch, cut 6 kiwis and 1 cantaloupe, and made 6 graham cracker sandwiches (the best snack before a workout). So we were set for the week! I decided to make a sort of Asian themed salad, complete with peppers, onions, cucumbers, chicken, slivered almonds, and Trader Joe's spicy peanut vinaigrette. They were fantastic! And this dressing is a must-try for anyone who loves that Thai peanut flavor.  

FIVE // This weekend I'm going to a baby shower with my mom, having a BBQ with some of our friends, and prepping to go to Atlanta for work on Monday. Also, Andy leaves for Denver next Friday so I won't see him until the following week - thank God for facetime! ;)
