5 On FRIDAY



ONE // 

I'm thinking I may have gone a little book crazy on Amazon last week, y'all! My plan is to read one on the plane and another while in Mexico. Have you guys read any of these? If so, which one (or two) do you recommend I take along with me? 




TWO // 

I made these super easy baked potato rounds last weekend for a cookout we had with some friends and they were delicious. I'm pretty sure the secret is boiling them for a few minutes before you bake them...they were so tender and just melted in your mouth. 

** I swear they tasted better than they look;) 



THREE // 

Todd and I are flying out at 5am tomorrow morning and we should be arriving in Mexico by 10am! I seriously can't tell you guys how excited I am about this trip. I'm so ready to relax and celebrate ten years of marriage to my man! 

I'm working right now on a few post to go live while we are in Mexico, but I'm not taking my laptop with me so if I don't get them finished I'll pop in as soon as we get back. And I'm sure I will share some pictures with you all on Instagram, but I made a promise to myself to step away from my computer and the blog while we're there. 



Besides dinner reservations each evening and the two massages we have booked, we have no real plans while in Mayakoba. I am pretty darn thrilled about this. We may go snorkeling or sailing, but that's about all the activities I think we will do :) 


The pictures below are from the Fairmont Mayakoba resort where we will be staying. 




FOUR // 

Wednesday evening I had a few more items arrive from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I loved everyone of them, so I thought I would share them with you guys. 


Top runs tts and I'm wearing the xsp.


Top //  Jeans also similar here // Watch // Earrings // Booties

Top runs tts and I'm wearing the xs. The booties run tts and I'm wearing my normal 6.5. 



Pajamas run tts, but I always go up in sleepwear so I'm wearing the small. And the bra that I linked up is the "life-changing" bra that I was talking about in my video on Instastories. 



Tee runs tts and leggings run small. I'm wearing the xs in the tee and a small in the leggings. 


FIVE // 

Because this is too good not to share :) 


And on that note, so is this new wine I bought last week at Whole Foods...haha!!!
