Friday 5: Hello 2019!

Friday 5

These awesome bracelets from BuDhaGirl have been a staple on my wrist since I got them for Christmas. They're lightweight, soundless, but most importantly, serve as way to set daily intentions. In the morning, you set an intention as each bangle goes on. At night, when each comes off, remind yourself to be grateful for the day. The creators have a lot to share and I enjoy reading their blog. Check them out

I keep hearing of more and more people being taken over with some sort of nasty illness, so until that comes to a halt, everyone in this house gets a daily tablespoon of elderberry syrup. We're too busy to let the germs win! Wiping down doorknobs and light switches helps too, but I like knowing I'm doing something from the inside to boost my immunity. As a plus, the syrup takes the bite out of apple cider vinegar and makes it more tolerable. Win-win! What do you do when you feel a cold coming on?

Surprise! We got a dog. Minnie is a mini goldendoodle, as cute as can be, and while I'm still on the fence about her presence, I vowed to always keep her in a cute collar. Here's her Valentine's Day collar that just arrived. Please share if you have any favorite Etsy sites for collars or slides! 

I wanted to share one of my go-to dinner recipes. It's fast, simple, and everyone in this house gives it a thumbs up. The recipe is from the The Recipe Critic and is easy to tailor to your likes and needs - I use chicken thighs instead of breasts, sometimes follow her recipe to bread the chicken, sometimes not, and throw in some other roasted veggies. A little prep work, 30 minutes in the oven, and dinner is done with only 2 sheet pans to clean. 

If you're needing something to watch this weekend, try Escape at Dannemora. I think it was fantastic!  It's a true prison break story, Patricia Arquette just won a Golden Globe for her role in it, and was directed by Ben Stiller. They tried to keep it as true to life as possible, even filming at the prison and several other locations where the action really went down. 

Forecasts are calling for a lot of snow this weekend and everyone is buzzing about it. I'm hoping they're right and wouldn't mind a snow day! What are your big plans? Whatever they are, hope you have a great weekend!
