Five On Friday

Five on Friday...

1. The Unicorn Frappuccino

Those Starbucks peeps are genius. I'm convinced this bright and colorful limited edition drink was invented with the sole purpose of social media photos in mind. Of course it worked on me, and Parker and I swung by Starbucks on Wednesday to get one (I used my free reward drink, so I don't feel as duped). The flavor? Cotton candy rolled in funfetti frosting. I can probably count on one hand the number of sips we took - not even my four-year-old was a fan! Next time, I'll stick with the Vanilla Bean (though it's not nearly as pretty ;)


2. This Book 
 

Y'all, this is a book you can pick up and read cover to cover. In fact, I almost read it all in one go until I realized it was the middle of the night (Max was snoring next to me) and I still had mom duties in the morning. I ended up finishing it the next day when I was supposed to be making dinner (breakfast burritos for the win that night!). The book isn't super long and the writing is pretty simple, so it's easy to get through but the twisted storyline will have you captivated, I promise!  I just couldn't put it down!! Best read with rainbow roses, a cup of coffee, and while wearing this Old Navy dress (on sale for just $14!).


3. Nana & Papa!

Nana and Papa flew in to Huntsville  this month to give Parker all the love :) They were too sweet to take Parker out on a special date night, and sent Max and me out on a date night as well!


Husby and I headed to The Bottle downtown, a tiny place that we've decided has the best food and service in town. 


4. Our Garden...

Is up and running! Pictures to come :) I made it to the Botanical Garden Spring Plant Sale earlier this month, despite the fact that sale day was rainy with temperatures in the forties. I powered through anyway because it's my favorite event of the year. I stocked up on flowers, veggies, and herbs (which lived in our garage for a few nights while we waited out the random cold spell) and then warmed up with a cappuccino + my favorite new pastry, this vegan/gluten free pop tart! Both were from the Honest Coffee Shop pop up downtown. How excited am I to have another walkable coffee spot? Very



5. Easter Love








Happy Weekend!

    1. Awww, thanks so much! And I usually take my coffee sans sugar, so I agree on the sweetness overload :)

  3. Those pop tarts look delish! And I was so excited to see the Unicorn drink, it looks so fun but I was scared of all the sugar and have been living vicariously through social media. Happy Friday <3

    1. It was a perfect use of my Starbucks reward drink! I usually get talls or iced coffees, so I never feel like I'm "getting my money's worth" out of the free one ;)

  4. Well, you've gone and done it now! Cotton candy rolled in funfetti frosting sounds like EXACTLY what I would love! I was afraid of that. Now I'm going to have to go buy one! Dang it! Haha. Have a great weekend, girl!

    1. Lol! Hurry to Starbucks - we went though the drive-thru today to pick up iced coffee (me) and coffee cake (P) and there were five different signs saying they were sold out of the Unicorn Frapp!!

  5. I love your Easter photos and that pastry looks heavenly. I almost tried the Frapp, but so glad I didn't. I just wanted the photo more than anything. I want to read that book. Good to know how captivating it was.

    1. I think it might be my favorite book I've read this year!! Think along the lines of Gillian Flynn (twisted!) but I could not put it down!!

  6. Love all the Easter pics! And that book sounds really good. My sister tried that unicorn drink and said basically the same thing-so I passed! :) It sure looks pretty though!
