The Friday Five

1. Reading:
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life–dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge–he follows. After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues–and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew.

2. Eating:
It's a good thing this is a limited batch because I have no self control around Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Half Baked.

3. Listening to:
Mumford and Sons "Believe"

4. Recipe I'm pinning:
Inspiralized's Zucchini Noodle Pad Thai

5. Things I'm loving:
Be the tortoise, not the hare
Happy Friday!

I didn't mean for a whole month to pass between posts! Here is a lately post to catch up.
Anna, Amy, and I spent a few hours on a Saturday volunteering at the Hub City Hog Fest. 
The Budweiser Clydesdales made an appearance in the Burg for Spring Fling.
The Bike Race was held at the beginning of this month. I loved being able to tent hop and then pop back into my apartment. (And no, we did not coordinate our outfits.)
 We had two big weekends on campus with Spring Weekend and Spring Concert.
 I celebrated the end of great year with some of my students. 
I took a much needed day off and treated myself to two necklaces from Charming Charlies (pictured above and below). That same night, we headed to Greenville for a fun dinner at Roost followed by the Tour de Compadres concert.
 ML and I met in Charlotte the next night for Tour de Compadres round two. We had the most delicious dinner at Mama Ricotta's. I would go back in a heartbeat for their Grilled Salmon and Arugula Salad and their White Pizza. 
 You can't go wrong spending two nights in a row listening to Drew Holcomb, Ben Rector, and NeedtoBreathe.
And these are just a few things that have been happening lately!
