5 on Friday

Happy Friday, friends.

I'm posting a little later than normal today. Better late than never? I'm joining in on the 5 on Friday fun today to share some of my favorites from this week. 

I used the last drops of  my beloved Lancome foundation earlier this week to look put together enough to head over to the wall. I've been hearing great things about Estee Lauder's DoubleWear foundation so I picked up a bottle of it to try instead. I may or may not have been swayed by the Lilly Pulitzer gift with purchase. Meet my new beach bag, which will spend a lot of time pool side with me this summer. 

On of my most favorite things about having time off work during the summer is being able to have lunch dates with my sweet husband. While I love teaching, it can leave me feeling stretched really thin and feeling a little guilty for the time I have to spend away from my home and husband. Lunch dates in the summer are such a sweet, sweet treat. This week we finally got to try Crisp in Dilworth and it was so delicious. 

I have recommitted myself to barre this summer after being really slack with it for the last two months. When I'm tired and stressed, a good workout is the first thing to go, even though I know deep down this is counter-productive. I've been back to going to Carolina Barre & Core three times a week and then doing a 30 minute cardio + Barre 3 mini workout twice a week. 

I treated myself to a mani and glass of wine last night. Usually, I do my own nails but was feeling the need to be pampered. The color is Mod About You (I think) by O.P.I. and although I usually am totally loyal to Essie, I really like it. 

I've been taking this sweet boy on lots of walks and we've done our share of snuggling on the couch watching HGTV this week but he spends most of his time staring out our back door. Ever since we visited Corey's parents in Florida this spring, Riley has been absolutely 100% obsessed with trying to catch frogs. What a silly boy.

Happy Friday, friends!
