Five On Friday

Happy Friday, everyone! I can’t believe March is almost over, this year is flying by. I’ve been busy doing lots of little home improvement projects this week, and I’m happy with the way the house is coming together. As always, here are my five favorite things from this week.

{ONE} Fun new mug. I have a thing for fun coffee mugs and an inside joke with Lindsay about weird birds. I saw this while perusing the aisles at Michael’s and at $2 it was a no brainier. What a fun way to start the morning!

{TWO} Homemade pop tart. Erik and I went out to dinner to try a new restaurant this week. I had a delicious short rib sandwich and couldn’t resist taking one of these homemade strawberry pop-tarts to go. Completely delicious with my coffee the next morning. I may have to figure out how to make some of these, but I will definitely be back to that restaurant.

{THREE} Family s’mores night. It was finally not raining, not snowing, and not too cold to light up a little fire and enjoy some s’mores. Kira actually loves toasted marshmallows (see her staring at mine?) and Erik and I  got to talk a little more about our plans for the backyard this Spring/Summer. You know what that means? Another thing crossed off of my monthly list!


{FOUR} Staying positive. This quote definitely speaks to me. Sometimes it can be tough to stay positive, but I always believe that being optimistic is better than staying in a funk. And I’m excited for some great things to (hopefully!) come.

{FIVE} Cooking Indian food for the first time? Nailed it! Erik and I love Indian food, and I love trying to tackle new dishes. After checking several stores, I FINALLY found Garam Masala and made this delicious Crock-Pot Chicken Tikka Masala for dinner.  More details and the recipe I followed will be on the blog on Monday with the rest of this week’s menu. P.S. Garlic Naan is always better than regular naan bread.

That wraps it up! Have a great weekend everyone, and thanks for following!

I’m linking up with Darci, April, Christina, & Natasha for Five on Friday.
