Five on Friday

Link up with the ladies of Five on Friday: Darci, April, Natasha, and Christina

Unless you have been living under a rock you know that Lilly Pulitzer for Target is launching on April 19th. I realize some people aren't thrilled about it, but I'm pretty excited. I can't really decided if I'm going to try my hand at buying any clothes, simply because I can't fit into any of it right now. However I do have my eye on a couple key pieces.

I'm reading A Spoonful of Sugar: A Nanny's Story by: Brenda Ashford and I'm really enjoying it. I'm getting some really good tips on parenting (spend less money and more time with your child) and love the historical view of World War Two era England.

I went to a really fun event last night call Time For Art. A couple young professional groups in Columbia hosted an art auction, but instead of bidding for pieces with money, you bid with promised service hours. It's such a cool idea and if I knew I had an length of free time in the coming months I totally would have gone for a couple pieces, alas I think my time will be spoken for.

My mom made this recipe recently and, while its not much to look at, it was so tasty. I highly recommend this copycat recipe for Outback Steakhouse's Alice Springs Chicken.

Also on the food front, have you tried the Balsamic Vinegar and Basil Triscuits? They are so good. I have topped them with leftover pizza sauce, pepperoni, and cheese for lunch the last couple of days and it's so satisfying. Might be a quick appetizer to remember for football season.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


  1. The art auction you went to sounds really neat and like a great way to get people involved in the community. Way better than spending money on items! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. What a neat idea for an art auction!! Love your top picks from the Lilly line. I hadn't noticed that headwrap when browsing the look book. It's lovely! Thanks for sharing the link to that Outback copycat recipe. Looks delish!! Have a lovely weekend, Sarah! xo

  3. I can't eat gluten but the idea of those triscuits sounds so yummy!
