Friday Five {Scattered}

Friday, June 27, 2014

Happy Friday!!!  While I have a big weekend on deck I am still really looking forward to having a little down time.  Life has been filled with a lot of exciting things lately, in all arenas, which also means things have been busy.  I have been sticking to basic recipes, like my favorite roasted chicken, and simple salads.  I am excited to try a new recipe or two for the Fourth and enjoy this lovely summer!!

This Green Rice Salad with Nectarines looks pretty amazing!!!

So does this Chocolate Banana Graham Cracker cake!!

While enjoying a Spicy Cucumber Margarita?!? Yes, please!!!

Speaking of manners, as a stickler for Thank You notes, I really, really appreciated this post.

Remember when I talked about my goals for June?  Well, it is the end of the month and I am really happy with how everything turned out.  I am feeling healthier, more well rested and have tons of energy.  I'm actually inspired to join a running group!!!

What are you loving these days?  Anything inspiring??  Big summer plans??


  1. 1) We need more margarita parties!!!
    2) That cake looks incredible.
    3) Yes, join a running group! I have made such great friends through running groups and it is always a lot more enjoyable and inspirational to find others to run with, rather than doing it solo. Plus, running when it's nice out is WAY better! I really loved the Fit Right NW one. They have tons of different mileage and pace groups and really awesome people. High five to you for doing it!!
