Friday Five (2)


So I thought it might be fun this summer to try writing a more personal post every Friday highlighting some things going on in my life that aren't necessarily book related.  Let me know what you think!

1. Outlander TV Show - Guys, I am SO excited for this show. I just read Outlander this past winter and was so completely blown away by it. Yes, it has its controversial moments and upsetting scenes, but I loved it nonetheless. I am very much looking forward to watching the show this August on Starz.  Anyone else a fan?

2.  Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad- I made this recently and sort of became obsessed. It is just so darn good. It tastes like summer and would be the perfect addition to a barbecue.  Delish.

3.  Stella & Dot Earrings - I got the Serenity Stone Drops earrings for my birthday this past March and have been wearing them non-stop. They are not only comfortable, but they go with a lot of my outfits and dress up a boring t-shirt.

4.  Mystery Girls - Ok, so the was pretty cheesy and the laugh track was unbearable, but I think I'll watch episode two because it's Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling.  I love that they are reuniting for this project. 90210 forever.  Did anyone else catch this show on ABC Family?





5.  Antiques - I have two antique arm chairs from the 1940s that I reupholstered in the fall.  They are my one of most favorite pieces in the house.  Our house was built in 1928, so it definitely fits in.  I also bought antique dining room chairs to go with our new dining room table.  They actually match the table, but I need to reupholster them. The chairs are from the 1930s/1940s, so the fabric on the chairs is a little too old school for me. Any suggestions?  I am thinking of reupholstering them myself, because I hear it's easy to do, but I am so not crafty.  We shall see. Any tips for me?

So, what have you guys been up to? Any new products, movies, or TV shows I should try out this summer? Let me know what you think. Happy Friday!

  1. Love the Friday Five! I remember your review of Outlander and added the book to my list back then...BUT I still haven't read it! Mystery Girls looks like good, cheesy fun and that salad looks yum. Avocados are on of my favourite foods!

    1. Thanks, Leanna! I think you would really love Outlander! You should check it out before the TV comes out. Avocados are one of my favorite foods too…I'm completely addicted. If you love avocado, you'll love this salad! Thanks for visiting!

  2. Ok I love the chair. Seriously. And now I'm totally itching to see your house.

    I know it's cliche and probably outdated, but I love when the fabric is velvety. Like this: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/pdp/detail.jsp?&pageName=Orianna+Chair&catId=HOME-FURNITURE-CHAIRS&id=29292364#/

    Let us know what you decide.

    Mystery Girls? Say WHAT? I'm SO in. Totally off to look it up.

    1. Thanks, Juju! I will definitely check out the fabric you recommend. I love anything vintage-esque. Mystery Girls is so cheesy, but it makes me happy to see Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth back together again. Thanks for dropping by!

  3. I loved Outlander too and I am very excited about the show though I don't have cable. I think they will at least put the pilot online for free so I plan to watch that anyway.

    1. I bet they will have the pilot online and then hopefully you can Netflix or rent the rest of the series. I will be sure to let you know if it is any good. Thanks for dropping by, Christina!
