Five on Friday

one // I have never been one to have a consistent work-out schedule, so it's a pretty big accomplishment that Mr. E has somehow gotten me to work out with him about 3 times a week for the past few months -- if I'm good... baby steps. Now that it's warming up, he's had the bright idea to drag me outside to run around the National Mall with him, which is conveniently located only blocks from my apartment. Well, this gal has never been a distance runner, so this has been quite the experience. My way of hiding near-death exhaustion, stopping to take some "too good to pass up" touristy pics. He pretends like he's buying it...

two // I mentioned my bestie, Adrienne, in my FOF post a couple weeks ago. I went to visit her in NYC the weekend before Easter and we had such an amazing time! I just got a message from her saying that she has decided to take the rest of the day off from work and she's going to head to DC for the weekend!! To make things even better, one of my other best friends is heading up from NC to spend the weekend here too! I am so unbelievably excited to have some of my closest girls with me for the weekend.

three // Waterlogue App. Download it. Watercolor your pictures. Nothing more to say, y'all.

four // My parents know how much I love food, cooking and kitchen gadgets, so for my birthday, one of my gifts was this Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender! I have been loving discovering all the ways I can use it -- pureeing soups, milkshakes, sauces, etc. My current obsession is using it to make smoothies!! No need for a traditional blender, it will blend up any fruit, veggie or food that you want to incorporate. Yum!

five // When in New York City, I fell in love with these Ray Ban Aviators in matte gold and flash blue lenses. I decided I was due for some new sunglasses and I couldn't pass these up! Bring on the summer sun! P.S. Ray Ban is on Rue La La right now and I believe these are on sale!! If you're a member, go for it :)

I love linking up with A.LizNatashaDarci and Christina on Fridays!!

Have a wonderful weekend, y'all!!


  1. Stopping by from the link-up!! How fun that your GF's are coming to spend some time with you this - that always makes for the most fun weekends! Love the new glasses! Have a great Friday!

  2. Hope you have a blast with your girlfriends this weekend! And those glasses are on my wanted list at the moment -- my birthday is a month from today so maybeee they'll make the cut. Happy Friday!

  3. Stopping by from the link up! I can't hide my exhaustion after 5 minutes on the treadmill so I cannot imagine a full run! Those glasses are perfect for summer! Have a great weekend!

  4. Hope you had a great weekend!
