Five On Friday!

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. :)

A long weekend ahead for all of us, Monday being a day to reflect on all of those who have given their lives in the armed forces for our freedom! The ultimate sacrifice.

Memorial Day is also our 7th year anniversary this year, so we will be celebrating that on Monday.

Ian even agreed last night to giving our local restaurant Hawthorne's infamous "Inducer Pizza" a shot! Read about it here, interesting stuff. It's even been featured on Good Morning America!

Oh my goodness. A kitchen win. I picked up this cauliflower gnocchi at Trader Joe's the other day, and holy amazingness. Like absolutely melt-in-your-mouth. Now, it still does contain some flour and potato starch to bind it all together, but the main ingredient is cauliflower. And any time a veggie is the first ingredient, that's a good thing, right?!

So to prepare it, you can boil it, saute it, or microwave it. Which do you think I did? I microwaved that bad boy. Dumped the entire bag in my white Crate & Barrel dish, put the top on, and put it in the microwave for five minutes. When it was done, I added a tablespoon butter, grated parmesan cheese, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning. Stirred. That is IT.

Ian raved about it like I was Ina Garten in the flesh.

We will most certainly be stocking up on bags of this and trying out different combos. I'd love to stir some brie around in it, or maybe toss it with shrimp, add in some sauteed cremini mushrooms, there are so many possibilities!

Just like everyone, I have been perusing the Nordstrom half-yearly sale and I have my favorites.

Leith Racerback Dress (here), very good reviews, down to $29.40! And I love this Purple Victoria color but I also think all black is definitely doing to be super versatile ... and year-round.

Kendra Scott earrings 60% off and less than $30?! Y'all, grab these up, put them in your gift drawer (if not your own jewelry box) and don't look back! I love this color (Iolite) but there are a few colors available at this 60% off discount.

This Halogen tie sleeve cardigan (here) is an easy year-round staple. I love feminine touches on anything that's practical like a cozy, long cardi.

These sweet little girls and their princess gowns. Camille loves to make Charlotte be the prince who has to come kiss her awake from her deep, deep sleep.

Happy National Wine Day, my friends! Hope you have some very fun Friday night plans!
