My Friday Five

Oh hey Friday, I've been looking for you!  It's always hard when you head back to work after time off, this week has been no exception to that rule.  I find myself desperate for the approaching weekend, excited that it is almost here!

This week has been unseasonably cool for us here in Chicagoland, but I don't mind it.  It's still plenty warm during the day, but when it is slightly cool at night it is the best sleeping weather.  Lets check out a few highlights from this past week.

1|  On Sunday evening Martin and I grilled out, it was the first time this summer we made beer brats.  I love beer brats, it may have something to do with my Wisconsin heritage perhaps, but they aren't the greatest thing for you, so I definitely don't consume them as often as I'd like.  For those of you who don't know a real beer brat does not come from the store in a package labeled "beer brats".  Instead you take your plain old regular brats and some chopped up onions and boil them in beer for 20ish minutes before popping them on the grill.  That is a real beer brat and that is delicious!

2| Martin and I have now become regulars at the little crepe restaurant we like to frequent.  We walked in on Monday evening and the guy behind the counter asked if we wanted our "usual".  This is the only place we go where someone has remembered our usual's, and I kinda like it!  This time I had to go a little out of category and add a dessert crepe to the mix, it was well worth it!

3| I have been slowly acquiring items for my home office and this gem came in the mail this week.  I am in love with my new stapler, simple as that.

4| I came across this chart on Pinterest the other day which I thought was a perfect follow up to the post I shared on Wednesday about Quitting Sugar.  This would be a great chart to print out and keep in the kitchen, an easy way to choose healthier alternatives.

5|  I am 99.999% sure that this is the weekend that all big things in the bathroom get completed.  I am so excited because that means all that is left will be the finishing touches, a few decorative items and I can stamp this project done!  Can't wait to share to results with you guys!

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend, whatever it is that you do with it, see you Monday!

  1. Those crepes look amazing - and how cute is that stapler!!

  2. Sounds like you had a good week - beer brats, yummy!

  3. I love acrylic desk accessories! When i was little, I had a calculator that was completely see-through, which I blame for sparking my obsession with transparent desk items.

  4. Yumm to what you've been eating lately!

    I've been wanting so many cute office supplies lately, but the sad thing is, I don't actually HAVE an office! I'm sure you're having a ton of fun making yours perfect.

  5. Stopping by from #H54F. I never thought I could be in love with an office supply item, but your stapler may have changed that forever--so cute!
