five on friday

Today’s my first time linking up with Darci, Christina, April, and Natasha for Five on Friday. I love a good random post with nothing but five of my current favorite things- so with no further ado, lets get started!

5 on Friday Logo - Final(2)

 

1. Fresh Pico de Gallo. Something about these hot summer days just has me craving light, refreshing snacks, and this one fits the bill. Not to mention I’m always up for any excuse to have a margarita. This is probably one of my all time favorite snacks in the summer, and I love that everything comes straight from the garden. Recipe will be posted soon!

2. On Thursday night John and I went to our nearby Minor League Baseball game. There’s absolutely nothing better than sitting under those big ballpark lights watching the game with him. Even better, is the July fourth fireworks show after! This is our third year going to the ballpark on July Fourth, so I’d like to think we’re starting our own little holiday tradition. I was just excited I actually had the day of the holiday off this year, perks of the new job. :) Fourth of July post also coming soon.

3. In an effort to have more date nights and one on one time, John and I sent Landon off to my parents house for a night so we can enjoy sometime without having to chase a toddler around while trying to carry on a conversation. So far its going really well, and I’m so glad to have some time with just John to reconnect and enjoy each other. Today we are headed out an afternoon on the lake, I don’t hate it. As hard as it is being away from our little man, I know it is so good for our marriage to spend some time just us.

4. Current Read: Last fall I had the opportunity to meet Emily Giffin, and while there I purchased this book. Sadly, I have not gotten around to reading it until now. I’ll let ya’ll know how it is! (I’m sure it will be awesome, like all of her previous books).

5. Skinny Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka. I’m really not a big drinker, but during the summer, John and I like to grill out and enjoy a nice beverage. My current go to cocktail is this low calorie vodka mixed with lemonade. John Daly, anyone?

  1. I can't wait for your pico recipe! I always look for a new excuse to make mexican food. :)
    Like you, I'm not a big drinker. However, something about summer - the long days, outdoor concerts, fresh tanlines- it makes me crave an adult beverage. I love Firefly and will definitely have to check out the skinny version next summer!
