The Friday Five

1. Reading:
This has been on my list to read for a while but after watching the trailer, I couldn't wait for it to be available at the library so I bought it on my Kindle. From Amazon: A Love Story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?

2. Watching:
Keeping with tradition, I went to see the latest Nicholas Sparks' movie on opening weekend and it did not disappoint. The Choice may just be my new favorite movie of his. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD so I can watch it on repeat again. You can watch the trailer here

3. Listening to:
Thomas Rhett's cover of "Love Yourself"
I may like it better than the original.

4. Recipe I'm pinning:
How Sweet Eats
Zucchini Noodles with Cherry Tomato Garlic Cream Sauce
I may have to make this Sunday night.

5. Things making me laugh:
I thought these cards were so funny and typical of little boys.

My thoughts on Valentine's Day. 

Happy Friday!

Weekend Recap

We kicked off Friday morning by volunteering at Habitat for Humanity as an office. I have a new respect for our contractors and will not be quitting my day job any time soon.
Friday evening, I traded in my work gloves for my dancing shoes and we headed to the Piedmont Club for the 1831 Gala. The evening was filled with good friends and lots of laughter and dancing.
Saturday, I spent the day in Greenville catching up with a dear friend and seeing some of the guys we went to school with. We had a delicious lunch at Tupelo Honey and did some shopping. I'm super excited about my new blanket scarf. Now I just need the cold weather to come back.
I swung by Trader Joes on my way home and let's just say I got a little carried away. I haven't been in a while so I made sure to stock up on some essentials - i.e. cookie butter and dark chocolate peanut butter cups - along with some new frozen items to try. I'm still trying to restock my freezer after it died two months ago. I did show some restraint and did not purchase the Cookie Butter Cheesecake. Who even thinks of these things?!

I capped off a great day by making the most delicious dinner and watching a movie. Sometimes you just need a big bowl of seafood pasta. You can find the recipe here
I couldn't decide between watching more episodes of Scandal or a Valentine's Day Hallmark Movie. As much as I hate Valentine's Day, I went with a cheesy movie since watching Scandal has been keeping me up at night. 
Sunday was a low key day complete with church and then a fun lunch afterwards. This was the second weekend in a row that I was in town all weekend and needless to say, I enjoyed it!
