5 on Friday

Happy Friday!
Linking Up with Christina and the rest of the 5 on Friday girls to cruise into the weekend...

This Class:


I'm officially back at the Barre and taking a new class called BarSculpt...
I'm sore and glad to be working out again.

This Beauty Must:

Baby Lips Dr. Rescue
The cold weather is wreaking havoc on my lips. This little gem is perfect! Chap stick like but with a pretty surge of color...I'm addicted. P.S. I chose the berry color but thought the light pink sorbet was really sweet too.

This Recipe:

Enough said.

This Project:


Justin and Mark built my beautiful Farm House dining room table a few years ago (using the plans linked above)...but never built benches for us to sit on! I've looked into adding chairs that are more modern or eclectic, just to spice things up, but Justin doesn't seem to like the blend of styles. So this weekend, they get to build benches! I'll be in charge of staining and sealing, so don't think I'm getting away scott free.

This Date Night:


Yes, we've had our tickets for more than a week.
And no, I am not the biggest Hunger Games fan in this family.

Happy Weekend ya'll!

  1. I'd love to take a Bar class but honestly all those hip stay at home moms in great shape intimidate me!! Those cookies look amazing!! We're having a cookie exchange at work and I keep seeing so many good ones on blogs to make! These too!

  2. I'm jealous of that table! Good luck with the benches!! I'm going to see Hunger Games next week... SO excited!

  3. I'm like you, so excited for Hunger Games! Let us know how you like it!

  4. I'm a newlywed too, so awesome!

    Those cookies look amazing, I must make them :)!

    Stopping by from the linkup

  5. Yes, Catching Fire is totally on my weekend to do list. I made Ben read the books, and he loved the first movie so I don't even have to beg for this one.

    Side note, what's the deal with Mark? You mention him a lot and I know from your lady date that he's your roommate right? But it seems like you knew him before Maine based on this post? What's the scoop?

  6. Love it all! Can't wait for Catching Fire, love Baby Lips, and Barre Sculpt sounds amazing!

  7. I love everything on this list :) Your table is so awesome, I really want Cam to build something like that once we have a house! Also, he is kind of obsessed with the Hunger Games too...LOL. Have a great weekend, stay warm! :)

  8. I did pure barre in Boston for their one month new client special and it was amazing!! Those girls bodies are incredible...not to mention the soreness you feel is like nothing I have ever felt!! Hope you have great weekend!

  9. Love that table! Barre classes are such a killer workout! Happy Friday!

  10. Wow what a beautiful table! Thanks for sharing, we were wanting to make one when our new house is finally built! I've always wanted to try the Barre method.

  11. I loveeee the babylips! I have the cherry one and although it looks scary in the packaging it comes off just as a light tint. LOVE them.

  12. Love the farm house table! Also, SUPER excited for the Hunger Games...
