The Friday Five

If you’re new to my blog…WELCOME!  Every Friday I compile a list of 5 things I loved this week.  It’s products, interviews, movies, funny videos…a hodgepodge of random favorites.  Happy Friday!!

1.  I wore this t-shirt from AwesomeBestFriendsT’s and posted it on my instagram.  You guys loved it, so here’s where you can order one!

2.  I was never a “boy band” fan, BUT I watched the Backstreet Boy documentary “Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of” on Netflix and loved it!  Even if you’re not familiar with their music, it’s an interesting documentary.  They’re back in the studio as adults and they address the Lou Pearlman Ponzi scheme that cost them millions of dollars.

3.  Acai bowls are my favorite and I just discovered that Sambazon makes an Acai Sorbet….the perfect summer treat!

4.  Cait Chock.  First, I’m a huge fan of Cait’s artwork, but she also has an amazing story.  She held the US High School 5k record and was a professional Nike runner.  In 2010 she was struck by a hit and run driver and told she would never walk normally again.  Today she runs, is a contributing writer for Runner’s World and Competitor, and is an amazing graphic designer.

I ordered this awesome FEED ME card pack….love them!

And she just wrote her first children’s book…And Then She Ate the Wolf

5.  I have a big ole girl crush on Nicole Kidman.  This Vogue “73 Questions” interview is a fun quick fire interview and you get a look into her Australian farmhouse!

    Ummm…her definition of farmhouse and mine are different. I like her house though!
    Do you remember the “somewhere between a juice cleanse and a donut shirt” ? Where did you get that one? How did the sizes run?

      I ordered it from Truth Balance Virtue. I bought a small. It was a little big when I got it, but shrunk a lot. If I order another shirt, I’ll size up.

    Haha! I love that shirt! And the acai sorbet sounds super yummy. I love Sambazon acai packs for smoothies acai bowls, so I’m sure the sorbet is a winner!
