Five on a Friday 9.15.17

Happy Friday! While the weekend is just beginning for most of you I’ll be working straight through! I’m on my way to Austin for an event – woo! But first, I’m linking up with a bunch of bloggers for Five on a Friday/Friday Favorites.


I saw this on Facebook and nearly died. It’s SO ME. #sweatpantsandhomeforlife


Have you been watching Ozark on Netflix? This show is so weird! I love me some Jason Bateman, and Laura Linney is always fantastic but I am not used to them (at least not used to Jason Bateman) in serious roles like this! It’s a great show. I heard it gets weirder as it progresses. We are probably halfway through right now! And I love the girl who plays Ruth. I felt like I recognized her and turns out she had a small part on The Americans.


Have you ever tried these Chili Lime Chicken Burgers from Trader Joe’s? I forget where I saw them, someone’s blog but I don’t remember who, but oh man are they delicious. I buy a box and leave them in the freezer at work. If I don’t pack lunch or forget I can pop one into the toaster oven and voila! They are insanely delicious. Run to TJ’s to get them! Also – I have fallen in love with the Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. Sprinkle some over chopped up avocado – Mmmmmmm.



I have been buying more workout clothes since I am running again and taking Pure Barre classes and I got these pants during a sale at Old Navy. They are super comfy, perfectly opaque and I love the cutout design at the calf.



I’ve been making Sadie’s school lunch every day since the first day and I have to say I am still obsessed with YumBox. It makes packing her lunch so easy and nothing leaks! I’ve put ketchup in there, yogurt, applesauce and it stays put. Of course, now she wants to get hot lunch, so we agreed that once a week she can get it. Friday is pizza day so that’s what she’s getting! Her school has a debit card system for lunch but they suggest that the Kindergarteners bring money in a ziplock instead with a note saying what they can have, so Sadie has that with explicit instructions on what to do.

  1. That meme, hilarious. We LOVED Ozark too. So funny how redneck they portrayed people over here though. I swear Missourians aren’t like that at all.

  4. I actually had to stop watching Ozark for a bit because it was stressing me out. It really is weird to see Jason Bateman play such a dark character. I keep expecting him to say “I’ve made a huge mistake.”

  5. Her lunches are so darn cute!
