Woah, woah, woah – this means I’ve been doing Five Thangs Friday for 2 months! Talk about muddahfracking consistency! Spring break is two weeks away, and I am searching for all the joyous things to get me through this wait! Here are the joyous things from this week, you beautiful people!
The simplest things in life are the best, and grapefruit is one of them. One night this week, my husband prepared one for me and absolutely changed my life by sprinkling some sea salt on it. I’m not sure if I should be proud or ashamed about how that was a highlight of my week. There is nothing as satisfying as a nice juicy grapefruit. (I clearly need some hobbies)
#2. Paleo Granola (ON SALE)
I blogged about this in a previous Five Thangs Friday, but LEMME TELL YOU… now its on sale! I strolled on over to Aldi during my lunch break this week and found these gems were now only $2. You know I bought every last box!
#3. A Good Cup of Joe
My husband surprised me this week with this coffee maker, and I had my first cup this morning. Safe to say, it was one of the tastiest cups I’ve had in a long time. Maybe it was the placebo effect, but I swear I could taste more flavors in the coffee this morning!
#4. This Salad
This was to die for. Not to mention, it was the first time I got to eat outside this spring. If you’re in Chicago – definitely check out Antique Taco! (Apologies for the awkward lit sticker – I pulled this from my Insta)
#5. Compliments (finally something not food related)
We are at that point in the school year where the kids are absolute jerks to one another, so we spent some time working on compliments. My favorite was the kid who told me that I look like a sunset. I’ll take it!
So clearly, this week was fueled by food. I’m not mad about it! The weather is finally getting nice out in Chicago and my mood is going up with it! This weekend will be filled with quality time with some of my favorite humans and I am jazzed!
