Five on Friday

I'm linking up with A. Liz Adventures for another Five on Friday...cheers to the weekend!


Sophia has reddish hair. I am not sure if she will stay a redhead, but I love it!
{I will admit to choosing filters on instagram to make it a bit redder}
I love how her hair can start great conversations with others about their connections to redheads.
Something I learned about red hair -
in order to have a redhead, you have to have redheads on both sides of the family tree.


Two nutella recipes I am very much looking forward to trying:

Nutella Swirl Ice Cream

Nutella swirl ice cream
I saw this on A Beautiful Mess and I can't wait to unpack our ice cream maker and try this out!


Nutella Sugar Cookies

I saw this recipe on Pinterest from this site and I think it will work with a gluten free flour blend.


I got a little caught up in the Great Kate Wait. I was betting on a girl - wrong.
I thought Kate and William showed such grace when introducing the prince to the world.
There is no way {even with help} that I would have been camera ready 24 hours after giving birth.

HRH Prince George - I know a sweet little American commoner if you are interested :)


I had the best green smoothie at Whole Foods thanks to the Vitamix demo man.
Can't wait to unpack my blender (which is NOT a Vitamix) so that I can try to replicate it.
I wish I had asked for the recipe. I know it had pineapple, lime, and spinach.
Who knew I'd like spinach in my smoothies :)
Going Green Smoothie


I am no longer living and teaching in North Carolina but after reading this article I am worried about education in the state. I won't get on my soapbox but so many amazing educators are leaving the profession. No raise, phasing out tenure, cutting even more teaching assistants - North Carolina you have done a disservice to the profession.

This is my 100th post!


  1. OMG those nutella cookies look to die for! I drink green shakes everyday. I can't be without them. I make mine with a cup of fresh kale, a cup of fresh spinach, 1 scoop of banana almond milk, and 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I know it doesn't great, but it is! Filling, too. Plus only 170 calories! Glad to find you on the link up, girl!

  2. My hair was the same red color for the first few months of my life, now it's mostly blonde (with a touch of red every now and then). If her hair doesnt stay as red as it is, I'd bet that it turns a blondish red.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
I'd love to hear from you!
