Five on Friday


A lot of sweet ladies have nominated me for a Liebster Award and I so bad I am horrible at responding! I have already done two so I probably won't do any more but I wanted to say thank you to: Krista, Kayla, Robin, Michelle ,Bri & Regina! Thank you all for nominating me!! Since Michelle was the most recent person to nominate me I thought I would go ahead and answer her questions!
  1. Red wine or white? Red - but I am not a huge drinker. Only socially :) My drink of choice is a diet coke!
  2. Favorite winter activity? Since our winter's here are pretty mild I don't really have a favorite activity. I do love to get up to Lake Tahoe when I can and enjoy the snow and scenery.
  3. Which Olympic sport are you most excited to watch? I like Summer Olympics much better but I do look forward to figure skating. Honestly I will watch it all when it's on!
  4. What do you want for Valentine's Day? Hmm not much pretty happy with what I have right now + my birthday is coming up in March.
  5. If you could eat one thing from one restaurant's menu for the rest of your life, which would it be? That's tough - I think it would have to be Mexican food cause I love it. Please don't make me pick just one thing!
  6. When it comes to men, what's your "type"? My husband - I mean have you seen him? YUM.
  7. What's one beauty ritual you cannot skip? Brushing my teeth (haha!)
  8. Who was your favorite teacher in school and why? My favorite teacher was Patricia Geist-Martin at San Diego State. She taught an ethnography class and I just adored her. I wrote a 30 page paper on "Emotional Labor and Long Distant Relationships" . David and I survived an LDR for two years!
  9. Dream car? I wouldn't mind an Audi R7
  10. Favorite song at this very moment? John Legend "All of Me"
  11. You can only eat one part of the Oreo.  Cookie or cream? Cream!

This weekend it is supposed to pour here! I am SO excited. I plan on staying in my Hunters and my new lulu jacket all weekend! Sleep Train (where we bought our mattress) is next door to Lululemon, while David went to get coffee I told him to meet me in there. I walked in and saw this jacket on sale, one left and my size. I tried to explain fate to him but he just shook his head.

Nice Asana Jacket *herringbone


Coconut Water - some are so disgusting. Others are so good it's all I want to drink! If you're not sold on it try this brand before you give up on it completely.


I just want to throw it out there that I am still so bitter I didn't buy these when I first saw them back in November! I sure hope they bring them back this year!


I've got something exciting rolling out next week on the blog! Looking forward to starting a new series! Hope you will join me!

Linking up with April and the other lovely ladies of five on Friday!


  1. All of me is my favorite song right now too! I swear it makes me tear up every time I hear it. Try Zico coconut water. My Dr actually recommended it and it's really delicious. Have a great weekend friend!

  2. My favorite is figure skating too. I don't know what it is... But I absolutely love it! And when's your bday? Mine is the 17th!

  3. Yay excited to see what you've got planned for the blog! Love that Lululemon jacket and that John Legend song! Have a fun weekend!

  4. I would choose Mexican too! Love your nails! Have a great weekend.

  8. I just can't get into coconut water but maybe I will give it one last shot with this brand! And I neeed that Lululemon jacket.. I wonder why it's not on sale online?! So cute! Have a good weekend!

  9. Loooove that jacket..I picture it looking FAB with our Hunter boots..which is what I will be living in all weekend long..Yippey for rain in Cali!!!! Happy Friday friend!

  10. Congrats on the award. Equally excited about your new series!

  11. I want that jacket! Why oh why does Lululemon have to be so dang expensive?!?!

    Only a few more weeks until it's our birthday month! Woohoo!

  12. I totally swore off coconut water (despite the health benefits) so maybe I will just have to give Blue Monkey a shot ... thanks for the heads up!

  13. What a great jacket! It will go with everything so totally justified :) Looking forward to your new series. Happy weekend, lady!

  14. I definitely wouldn't hate an Audi R7 either! Zico coconut water is my favorite. The chocolate version tastes like Nesquik!

  18. I'm ignoring the coconut water in your hand because I love your nails so much. I. love. that. color. Must have.

  19. Fate. Fate. Fate fate. Love that jacket

  20. I am LOVING that I think I just need to buy it. Was it on major discount in store? If so I may need to check out ours, otherwise I'm just buying it full price off their site!! Looks so comfy.

    I may have to give this coconut water a try....I have tried a couple others but cannot drink it. Just not my taste....but I want to like it, I do. :)

    Ok, for a girl who doesn't love surprises, I just HAVE to know what's coming up!! Have a great weekend

  21. I totally get you on the coconut water. My favorite brand right now is Taste Nirvana. You can find it at Safeway, but here is a link to show what it looks like:

    So tasty!
