HIgh Five For Friday 10/25

I will be honest here, I had a really uneventful and boring week. The most interesting thing that happened was that I was an hour early to my English class I teach and didn't realize it until I sat there for 30 minutes. Yep, that happened. The people at the school even tried to tell me, but they don't speak English so I didn't know what they were saying. They probably think I am super crazy. Oh well, better than being late. 

I am still getting a hang of this whole stay at home wife thing. The days seem to go by quickly and at night I always ask myself what in the heck I did during the day. Seriously, I can't even remember what exactly I did this week. I barely got out of the house because it was typhooning like crazy. I got a few workouts in, watched a lot of shows, and didn't get much cleaning done. It seems like the more time I have, the less house work gets done. How does that work?

Since I don't have much to share with you as far as exciting activities, I will share some of my inspirations from the week

{DO}
Since I am still figuring out this stay at home wife business, I found this fun article. It gives free ways to entertain yourself at home. I have done some of these, but it is a cool go-to list when you just need something to do. Some of these things I would have not thought of, so I was excited. 

{RECEIVE}
I did get some packages this week that pretty much made my life. My friend Julia sent me a package of Trader Joe's goodies. Um, YES! I love and miss Trader Joe's. I love that most of their products are less processed and don't have as much of the bad stuff, even if they aren't a "healthy" food.

-Quinoa
-Pumpkin Bread Mix
-Dog Treats
-Pumpkin Butter
-Sesame Honey Cashews
-Harvest Grains Blend
-Pumpkin Cereal Bars
-Powerberries

Powerberries are my all time favorite Trader Joe's product. Try them!!


These are delicious. And the name cracks me up

She also sent me this book and can't wait to read it!

She and my mom both sent me lots of quinoa and I am super happy! I can't wait to make tons of quinoa recipes

{EAT}
Speaking of quinoa, I saw this recipe for quinoa casserole with kale and chickpeas and will be making it ASAP. I am always looking for unique quinoa recipes and this one really caught my eye.


{LIVE}
Looking at design inspiration is one of my favorite things to do. I am always changing my design style and looking for inspiration. I have always loved this apartment tour at Breakfast at Toast and especially love this living room. 


{WEAR}

I am loving this combo. I am not one to play with different colors, but these really work. How cozy does that sweater look??


Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. I'm in the same boat, with staying home all day and at some point it feels like I have all this time, but I've actually become lazier, and don't get much done during the day. In my defense, the house stays pretty clean, so it's not like I have to do major cleaning every day, but I have to be careful or some days I could get nothing done. I try to keep myself on a pretty strict 9-5 schedule as if I were at work to prevent me from sitting on the couch all day.

  3. Those Pumpkin Bars at Trader Joes are soooooo good. I went by the Trader Joes here in Charleston, SC and they were out, such a disappointment :( That Pumpkin butter is really good as well, even my 3yr old loves it.
    I will see if they have the Powerberries next time I'm in the store.

  4. I am in the same boat since my husband and I moved to Manila - so I can understand the stay at home wife thing AND the typhoons. Love and miss Trader Joe's too - so many goodies!
