High Five for Friday - Link up, Vol. 6

Wow, so this has been one long week! Am I right??  I don't know, some weeks just feel longer than others. Work is getting busier, the weather is getting warmer and I am just ready for a vacation! But unfortunately that's going to have to wait awhile.

Seeing as it's's time for another H54F, a.k.a my 5 favorite things from this week, with Lauren over at From My Grey Desk

ONE. My new, ABSOLUTE favorite bracelets! I couldn't decide which color to buy, so I got both. Do you blame me??

TWO. I look forward to my Food Network Magazine every month, but especially when summer rolls around. They just have the most amazing recipes in there, plus eye-catching pictures, great articles and fun contests! I'll be curling up with this sometime this weekend for sure. Now that I'm eating a bit more basic, I'm just going to have to figure out how to make some of the dishes a little differently - but I know it can be done!

THREE. I bought this book on sale last week from Walmart and I am absolutely loving it. I got the chance to attend on of Joyce Meyer's Women's Conferences in St. Louis, MO many years ago with one of my college roommates. She blew me away then, and she is doing so again with this book. It's just a daily devotional read, which technically starts January 1st, but I'm just going to start from the beginning now and go day-by-day. I've been waking up in the morning, reading my devotion, blogging and getting ready for work - such a peaceful way to start the morning, let me tell you!

FOUR. The Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad from, have you tried this salad?! It is one of my all-time favorites, and is only available in late Spring - Summer. And believe me, I order it every chance I get when it's there. Some people might not like fruit in their salad...but to me, it is so refreshing!! Greens, chicken, strawberries, blueberries, madarin oranges, pineapple, pecans & fat-free poppyseed dressing = DELICIOUSNESS! Oh, and did I mention you can buy the poppyseed dressing at Target...I'm pretty sure I'm going to recreate this salad at home soon!! :)

FIVE. I got contacted by a publishing company to review this book (see this post)...

...and participate in their blog tour. I'm pretty excited for the opportunity! I'll be posting my full review/post next Wednesday, May 23rd - so stay tuned!

That's it for my always, thanks for hosting Lauren!
This weekend I am participating in the Warrior Dash near Charlotte - a 5k/3.1 mile course full of 11 obstacles (rope climbs, crawling under barbed wire, and yes, this includes lots & lots of MUD).
Wish me luck...I think I'm going to need it!! :) Pictures to come...
