Five on Friday

Well Hello! It sure has been a little while...

I have been a busy girl the past 2 weeks and I just haven't found a minute to sit down and talk to y'all. But, I am eager and determined to change that!

Let's get going with my Five on Friday for this week, linking up with A.LizNatashaDarci and Christina, with hopes that it will help us catch up a little bit on what's been going on in my life lately...

Life as a flight attendant isn't always as glamorous as you would expect, but it does have its perks. Last Tuesday, at 3:30AM, I was woken up by "the ring" (my special ringer for when work calls). They informed me that I was being quick-called and I needed to be at the airport by 5AM! Not he best feeling... But I soon realized that I would be gone on a 4 day trip, overnighting in New Orleans the first 2 nights and the last night in Minneapolis. I had never been to New Orleans before, Mr. E and I had even been talking about taking a weekend trip there sometime this summer, so I was very excited to visit. He wasn't very thrilled to be missing out. I had a wonderful time with my crew, taking a horse and carriage tour of the French Quarter, snacking on Beignets and Café au Lait from Café du Monde, drinking Hurricanes at the oldest bar, Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar, and eating a wonderful seafood dinner. I can't wait to go back!

Last weekend, J.Crew was offering 30% off their colorful linen tees and chino shorts. I'm not sure if the sale is still going on, but if it is, go go go! I was seriously needing some new shirts for summer and the J.Crew linen v-neck pocket tees were perfect, I got 3 colors, the sea foam, lavender and white with navy striped sleeves! I also got a couple scoop-neck pocket tanks, in white and a neon pink color. Of course I couldn't bypass the sale on shorts, so I got a bright pink pair in the 3" chinos. Lastly, yes there's more... I saw the beautiful Crystal Shade earrings in one of the jewelry cases and to my delight, they were 25% off! Don't you just love a good sale? I think I'm taking a break from shopping for a little while...

I brought out my watercolors for the first time in a while and I had the best afternoon just doodling away. I really need to do this more often...

Scratch DC does it again! If you didn't read my post about this wonderful company that delivers dinner kits of amazing recipes, go on over a take a look! Last Thursday, Mr. E and I ordered the Roasted Garlic, Parmesan & White Wine Farfalle with Sundried Tomatoes, Pancetta, Chicken, Mushrooms & Peas! And yes, it was as delicious as it sounds! I was even thrilled to see they included a really cool 4-in-one spoon, spatula, kitchen tool? How cool! ...thanks ScratchDC for the beautiful ingredient picture!

For memorial weekend, Mr. E surprised me with a day trip to Baltimore. He wanted to go to the Aquarium, walk around and enjoy the inner harbor and eat some fresh crab, and I couldn't think of a better way to spend Sunday! The weather couldn't have been more perfect! We spent hours just wandering around the touristy Inner Harbor, braving the crowded aquarium and then escaped to Fell's Point where we found the perfect little restaurant to eat dinner, Riptide By the Bay. All in all, it was the perfect day, crab bibs included!
I hope you all have enjoyed your weeks and have some fun things in store for the weekend! I'm going to the Nationals baseball game tonight and can't wait to get my hands on a hot dog!!


  1. Your New Orleans trip sounds amazing! As does Scratch DC. I could use one those here! Happy Weekend, xo!

  2. Love the watercolor, and those J. Crew earrings are so pretty!

  3. Fells Point is awesome. I didn't see the Crab place but there is a great little pizza joint there as well. I think its called Brick Oven Pizza. We will have to check out the crab place when we are there next.
