It is another 5 on Friday and I am excited to be linking up with the new mommy over at North Carolina Charm, Natasha, and friends :)
1. My baking is getting out of control.
Thank heaven I start work on Monday, because my kitchen is over flowing. Yesterday - with a cookie in his hand - AR asked that i stop baking sweets for a while. Apparently my love of cookies is becoming too much. Who ever heard of such a thing?
So I baked this rustic bread instead of cookies!
2. I found a solution for those sweets.
I went to Whole Foods and grabbed some ice cream. And then I got too embarrassed to be checking out with only ice cream at night, so I went back and grabbed a bunch of frozen fruit for smoothies (Pathetic. What a solution).
And then I made ice cream sandwiches!!! This is my go-to when the counter gets filled with treats, because they last well and are less tempting when they are in the freezer.
I stuffed these chocolate-peanut butter swirl cookies with vanilla ice cream, then individually wrapped them in plastic wrap and froze. I also ate one. Yum.
3. This eye cream is amazing.
Mario Badescu eye cream at Ulta the other day. I had actually planned on buying it as part of my summer beauty haul, and then Ulta was giving away a free sample of it. I was so glad to try it before buying.
The stuff is amazing! No less than 3 people have told me I look like I am so "happy and glowing". I'm giving Mario Badescu the credit :) Bonus: It is only $18 a jar.
4. This weather...
Is ruining my running. On Wednesday, I did 4 miles at an 8:30 pace and felt like I was sufficating in the heat and humidity. Then yesterday I went out and nearly froze. And then it started raining. I cannot keep up with this weather. I feel like I am basically always dressed inappropriately.
5. Clothing Swap.
I've cleaned out every cabinet, shelf, and closet over the last 2 weeks. I filled several give away bags and numerous trash bags. This weekend I was invited to my first clothing swap, which is the perfect home for some of my give-away clothes! Of course, I restocked my closet at the outlet malls last weekend, but I can always make space. Have you done a clothing swap before?
Have an awesome weekend!
