5 on Friday & some confessions

Hey all! It is Friday and the weekend is here!

I kind of fell off the blogging train this week... I planned on writing a WIAW post on Wednesday and had a recipe to share on Thursday, but it didn't happen. But I'm happy to link of with Natasha for a little 5 on Friday and Leslie for some confessions.

I confess that:

1. I had my first visit to the dermatologist on Wednesday. I know I am a little late on that, but I am a religious sunscreen wearer, and I don't really have sun spots or anything. But I had some redness on my legs, so I went to the dermatologist.
I ended up getting a biopsy done (eek!!) and a blood test - results come back Monday.  So now I have two stitches in my leg, which isn't cute.

2. I ate the same thing for breakfast 4 days this week. I have fallen in love with avocado toast. I make a piece of toast, and top it with a fried egg. Then, I spread mashed avocado on top, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. It is so so yummy. And grapefruit on the side makes it such a bright, fresh breakfast.

3. I am buying a new swimsuit cover-up for our beach trip next weekend, but not a swimsuit. AR and I bought tickets to head to Florida for 2 nights. I was going to buy a new swimsuit, until I dug around in my drawers and found 4 or 5 cute bikinis. I really cannot justify another one. So I am doing a beach cover up.
Here are some I have my eye one:

Fall For Summer Kimono: Coral
 Shoreline Boutique

Sheer Poncho


'Encintas' Eyelet Cover-Up Tunic
Tory Burch

4. I totally loved my job this week. Being an attorney has some exciting parts! I think people imagine that we spend all day writing and reading (which could be true). But some weeks it is awesome. I interviewed witnesses this week and prepped for hearings, which was exciting. Is that silly?

5. I am hosting brunch for friends this weekend and have NOT planned what to make. Any ideas? I thought about biscuits, fruit, turkey sausage, french toast, quiche.... I don't know. I need help. It needs to be easy (Friends are coming over after I do my long run) and yummy. I'd love suggestions or recipes!

Have an awesome weekend!


  1. Loved reading your blog! I actually did a brunch a few weeks ago for my friends and I did muffins--blueberry and cinnamon sugar, a breakfast casserole, hash brown casserole (which was to die for and I found the recipe on the back of the OreIda hashbrown bag) and fruit. I also did a mimosa bar with OJ, pineapple juice (my fave) and cranberry juice. It was all great! Good luck--I'm sure whatever you do y'all will have fun!

    1. Such awesome ideas! It sounds like you threw a fabulous party!! I'm going to look for that hash brown casserole recipe :-)

  2. I absolutely love avocado toast- I started eating it this year, and it's SOOO good. As far as brunch goes- you can't go wrong with mimosas, sausage balls, muffins/some kind of loaf of yummy bread (like banana bread), fruit, and maybe some kind of breakfast casserole. That way, you've covered all of your bases. Oh, and definitely have coffee with a few creamer options. :)

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Awesome ideas, Les. I'm going to find a good turkey sausage ball recipe! Thanks for stopping by!!

  3. Eeeeek - I LOVE finding fellow attorney bloggers! Glad to have popped over from A Blonde Ambition. (And that avocado toast sounds exquisite!)

  4. i love those swimsuit covers, I could not just pick one.
    Came over from Leslie

  5. Hi there! I'm visiting from Leslie's blog. As someone who works in a law school, it makes my heart so happy when students go out in the real world and LOVE what they are doing. Thank you for that confession. I hope you'll come check out my confessions too.

    1. Aww, thanks!! Glad you stopped by :)

  6. A frittata or casserole is always a good choice if you're hosting people! And of course mimosas are a must ;)

    1. Haha, I like to double fist it with a coffee in one hand and a mimosa in the other ;)
