high five for friday

1. girl’s night with some of my favorite chicks.
2. so, sometimes i eat fries and a chocolate shake for dinner. according to my sister, it’s my “signature meal”.
3. cute socks make getting dressed more fun. (from H&M)
4. there’s nothing that i love more than putting on bum clothes as soon as i get home from anywhere. wearing jeans in the apartment? wouldn’t know what it’s like…
5. i tried a new quinoa recipe and really like it. you can find it HERE.

  8. I always change as soon as I get home, too! No use wasting good clothes for hanging around the house. 🙂 Love the polka dots!

    • And have you experienced the AMAZING-NESS of dipping the fries in? That is my favorite.

    I know exactly how you feel about the bum clothes! Why should I put on a cute but uncomfortable outfit to wear around the house? It's just not worth it…:)

    I don't think that I ever make it more than 5 minutes after getting home before changing into "bum clothes". Have a great weekend!

    The first thing I do when I get home is go straight to my bedroom. Bra off. PJs on.

  20. My husband and I never wear jeans at home either. We come in the door, wash our hands, and are in shorts or sweats within three minutes. Jeans (or any real "I wear these in public" bottoms) are uncomfortable when sitting on the couch. 🙂

    I like to dip fries in ice cream. I imagine it would taste just as good dipped in chocolate shake. Have you tried doing that?

    I love those socks. I cant buy cute socks I always loose one and then wear mismatching socks. boo.
    It is a miracle if my "day" clothes last 5 mins when I walk in the house. Especially after church I love sundays when I am in bum clothes but my hair and make up are done!

    Have a great weekend!

  24. Love the socks! So fun. And yeah…who wears real clothes at home? Sweats. The moment I walk in the door.

    Lounging around in sweats is THE best in the winter. I'm caught in sweats no more than 5 minutes after I get home from work! Haha…love it!
