Five on a Friday

Happy Friday, friends!

-one- M and I are trying Blue Apron for the first time. Last night's meal was Meatball Ragout with vegetables. On deck are Fettuccine with Mushroom Bolognese and Chicken Tarzaki with Garlic-Spinach rice. There are definitely some pros to this...mainly it pushes me out of my food comfort zone. Last night I ate a dish that was 80% vegetables and loved it! The cons are the cost (around $57/week which is 3 meals for 2 people) but I wonder if it will end up balancing out in the long run with all the fresh produce and organic meats? Anyone else tried Blue Apron? So far, I'm enjoying it...they literally include everything! Oh and I ate swiss chard! I never would have tried that before.


-two- I'm participating in a cool 7 day Instagram challenge with Helene. It's the #7in7challenge and there's a different prompt each day. The first day was Spring Vibes and yesterday's was Happiness. Follow me on Instagram to see the rest of the posts.


-three- M got me some magazine subscriptions for Christmas to Better Homes & Gardens, Country Living and HGTV magazine. Bless. But now I'm in magazine overload. I barely have time to read them all and then I feel guilty if I throw them away afterward. I found a coworker who will take some but I don't know what to do with them! Anyone else have a problem throwing magazines away after you read them? I think I can recycle them right?

-four- I'm on the lookout for a pair of nude wedges for this season at work. I had to toss my old ones because they broke. I'm considering these or these.

-five- Have y'all seen those adult coloring books floating around? As an adult who has always loved and indulged in coloring, I approve of this trend. But here's my qualm...all of the designs I've seen are super intricate and detailed so you couldn't use actual crayons to color. You have to use either colored pencils or fine-tipped markers. That makes me sad. There's nothing I love more than a fresh pack of Crayola (only...don't give me that Rose Art crap) crayons and coloring away.

  1. I like the Chinese Laundry pair better but I don't find their shoes comfortable!

    Not a Blue Apron fan...I felt boxed in by them? It was weird. I'm not sure why.

  2. Magazines can be dropped off at a Senior Citizen facility, or a magazine swap with friends:)

  3. 1, yes you can definitely recycle magazines. I put mine in my blue bin. 2, I keep thinking about Blue Apron but I never pull the trigger. 3, I saw Beth Hoving wearing some KILLER nude wedges yesterday, if you want to ask here where she got them. 4) good point about the crayons on those crazy intricate designs. I'm not a good enough colorer for them.
