Eat Drink & Be Mary: Five on Friday


Five on Friday

It's Friday; thank God we made it!  It seemed like such a long week...but enough of that pity party.  It's finally the weekend that I've been waiting for.  Here are 5 things on my mind...

ONE | | Engagement Pictures
T is coming up this weekend, and we are taking our engagement pictures.  I may burst with anticipation and just can't wait!!  Ahhh..excuse me while I have my own dance party.  

TWO | | Birthday Celebrations
This weekend T and I are also off to the queen city to see some of my favorite people and celebrate birthdays.  I'm lucky enough to have these amazing friends in my life for another year, and no matter how old we get, birthdays should still be celebrated.

THREE | | Blueberry Oatmeal Muffin Donuts
I have been craving a glazed blueberry donut (the only donut I like), and my Walmart didn't have any regular or donut holes.  How dare they?  Then I hopped on Pinterest and this recipe appeared on my feed.  Coincidence, I think not.  Y'all I must make these. [also on my "to-bake" list: these]

FOUR | | WANTED: healthy + light recipes
I've been searching for some healthy and light recipes to make this year (have some? send them my way!).  Of course, my friend Pinterest has come in handy; I mean really a healthy version of Panera's broccoli cheddar soup?  I've died and gone to heaven.  [see my light triple chocolate brownies here]

Broccoli Cheese Soup: A Lighten-Up, Real Food version of a classically heavy and overly processed dish.

FIVE | | Valentine's Day
I just can't wait for this red and pink holiday to come around again this year.  I just love all the extra love in the air around this holiday.  And this year I've already seen so many adorable ideas.  Even if you're over Frozen you're kids/students/nieces+nephews are not...and how can you resist these?

  1. I love that "said no one ever." card. That's is so true, especially since a lot of girls/ women start planning their weddings/ save wedding ideas before they are even engaged. And those Frozen valentines are way too cute.

  2. Happy weekend! Hope your engagement pictures go well and that you have tons of fun celebrating birthdays!

  3. WOOHOO, engagement pictures! have so much fun :)!

    I love me some pink and red holiday, so fun and loving. I'll be at a best friends baby shower that weekend, so it will be a different kind of love but JUST as fun!

  4. I hope your engagement photos go well! The girls over at "I Don't Go To The Gym" Have a ton..I mean a TON of healthy recipes! Have a great weekend



  5. The Olaf snowmen are adorable. Now you have me craving blueberry muffins and donuts! Yay for engagement photos. And, this weekend, it just so happens that Wade is visiting and we are meeting with a photographer to plan our engagement photos! Have a great one, Mary.

  6. Yayyyy for engagement photos!! That's so exciting!

  7. Oh yay, have fun at your engagement shoot! Love those Olaf Valentine's, so cute!! I may need to try that healthy broccoli cheddar soup! Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Thanks girl. I can hardly contain my excitement!

  10. Those Valentine's are the CUTEST thing and our kinders would love them. Let me know if you try it out; it looks delicious!

  11. I've been craving them for several days, and I really want to try out that recipe! Oh how exciting; you'll have to let me know how that goes. Good luck!

  12. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll definitely be checkin' them out, for sure.

  13. Aw how fun and exciting. Right now most of my friends are in the "engaged" (or about to be) stage of life, but I'm sure babies are just around the corner!

  14. Ecards always have me cracking up! Guilty, I was totally one of those girls with ALL the ideas in the world on my pinterest board. ;)

  15. I love your engagement meme haha.. Yes when one is engaged, marriage better be on the mind or something aint right!

  16. Oh I can't wait to see what your engagement photos look like... you are going to KILL 'em.

  17. I couldn't agree more that every birthday should be celebrated! I cannot wait to see your engagement pictures! Have a great weekend!!
