Friday Five

TGIF!!! i know i promised a friday five every week but the past few weeks the time has gotten away from me or i just really wasn't diggin' anything that day! not to worry i'm here tonight with five really  random things to get your weekend going

i got new lamps!!! i finally looked at enough rooms on pinterest and through enough websites my budget couldn't afford AND THEN i found them right infront of me in Tarjay (target said in a fancy french accent)
i haven't found any lamp shades yet, but when i do i'll share them

I GOT A PINK HAIR EXTENSION. in honor of breast cancer awareness month i decided to do a little something fun and get pink hair. hey, this may be the last chance for me to have pink hair before i go out into the big girl world (which is in EIGHT MONTHS by the way! i applied for graduation this week. insert scared emoji here)

have i mentioned i like to collect coffee mugs? i got this elephant one last weekend at world market when Madison and i were visiting his family in Cartersville:) whenever i see one that i love ill pick it up or whenever i travel somewhere i try to get one to remember my trip. it's just something small that can remind me of my trip and i that i know i will use. sometimes i'm lucky enough to have friends bring me back a mug from one of their trips<3
here are some of my other cups that i love


i love cinnamon brooms in the fall
okay i'm out of exciting favorites but i do really love office supplies and sharpie pens are one of my favorites

bring the BEET back

my life has been so crazy the past few weeks i haven't had a lot of time to blog...but i'm back with a pretty yummy recipe! i started this post like two weeks ago so ill just pick up where i left off 

this past weekend at a girls dinner date i tasted a friend's beet salad and the flavor was unreal!! so of course i tried to recreate it last night and it was amazing!

so this is a beet...its a root...rap it in tin foil and pop it in the oven on 375 degree for about 50 minutes

this is what the beet will look should be easy to slice into and peel the skin off

i love these bag salads from Publix. they come with all the 'fixins' 
I also looovveee this goat cheese from publix. i could eat it on everything! if you have blue or parmesan cheese on hand i'm sure that would be just as great

I also sautéed two chicken breast, saving one to do something with the next day for lunch, and cut up one for the top of the salad
i also laid a few little pieces of freshly cut parmesan cheese on top of the chicken right when i took it out of the pan. thats just because i really love cheese! and the dressing was out of the salad bag but at the restaurant they used a balsamic and it was amazing! also if you wanting something lighter or really want to play up the beet, leave out the greens. the restaurant did and it was still very filling.
