Five On Friday!

A. Liz Adventures
It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

Last Friday at lunchtime, I joined a girlfriend and her two sons for a little adventure in uptown Charlotte. As the Panthers prepared for their California send-off, there was a lunchtime pep rally held in one of the large parks in center city. All five of us met at the lightrail station and took the "choo choo train" in to town (big adventure for Miss Camille) and had a great time seeing everyone decked out in their gameday gear getting stoked for the Super Bowl.

They were playing great music and just getting everyone pumped up about the team. Later, the coach and some of the players made an appearance (but we had to leave before that happened). It was such a fun adventure that I wouldn't have attempted solo, so I loved that my girlfriend invited us along!

We have fully transitioned our dining room over to our shared office space, and I love it. I don't miss our dining room at all. How did we live for four years thinking it was an absolute necessity? We ate in it maybe three times a year, and other than that, it was a holding ground for STUFF.

Stack of catalogs I want to look through but not now? Dining room table. Stacks of daycare artwork from Camille? Dining room table. Paid bills ready to meet their demise in the shredder? Dining room table.

My next task is switching out these standard knobs for some funkier pulls I found 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I'd love to share some photos of the new office space next week!

For well over a year now, these girls and I have been getting together for a quick weekday lunch every 2 or so weeks. Sometimes the little ones join us (like this past week at Cowfish) and sometimes it's just us four gals. I cherish their friendship so much. I also cherish Cowfish's bento boxes. True story.

Greek yogurts are a great choice for those with gestational diabetes, and I've tried several at this point. They are higher in protein than the traditional yogurt, which is the key factor to them being a good option. And oh my word, these whipped Yoplait yogurts are awesome. So far I've tried vanilla cupcake (!!!), strawberry, and salted caramel, and they are all quite tasty!

I love that you can score some Lilly Pulitzer items on Amazon that are even Prime-eligible. I keep an "April's Wishlist" running list on my account and stick things here that I can ask for for a birthday or Christmas (or just treat myself to from time to time). These totes are sold in a 2-pack: one for you, one for your bestie's upcoming birthday. :)

I mean really, stick a few cute things in there and you are all set: a fun beach towel for a beach bag, a cheese board and bottle of prosecco for a park picnic bag. You get the idea!

That's all I've got this Friday, but just one more thing .... GO PANTHERS!

TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!
