Friday Five

Happy Friday everyone! 

1. I am headed North this weekend for 4 of my friend's birthdays. They are all born within a week and there are sets of birthday twins (2 on 1/28, 2 on 2/5). I am also thankful to be able to spend some time with my family before the birthday celebrations.

2. Richmond got its second huge (by our standards) snow this year this week. Typically we get one good covering and everyone gets their snow fix. In addition to the snow, it was absolutely frigid for a few days. And to think I thought coming to Richmond would be an escape from Maryland and Blacksburg mountain weather!

3. After numerous people praising House of Cards on Netflix (the second season comes out 2/14), I decided to jump in head first. I have been flying through the first season on Netflix and it has kept me on my toes!

4. I updated my stuffed peppers recipe to make it a little healthier. Instead of rice, I used quinoa and added some diced tomato's and black beans for extra protein. It was super filling and flavorful 

5. Week 2 of my 10k training plan is done. One of my days this week consisted of cross training and I took a stab at the Arc Trainer. Boy, is that a workout. I think I found my new go-to cross-training machine.

Have a great weekend! 


  1. YUM to the stuffed peppers. Looks AWESOME. Happy weekend, sweets! xx

  2. so much to say - i've been wanting to try the arc trainer…but i don't live near enough a gym to give it a go. i'll need to talk my farmer into buying me one. :) right now i live on my treadmill. i'm scared to start house of cards on netflix because the last time i did that i neglected my daughter…or i prayed for her naps to come quickly. :) have you seen orange is the new black or downton abby? both are SO. freaking. GOOD! watch them. watch them immediately. happy friday. found you via the linkup! new reader!
