Five on Friday!



Happy Friday!! Linking up with Christina, April, Darci, and Natasha for some Five on Friday fun!




ONE  |  Watermelon Cookies 

If you’re looking for an easy-peasy summer treat, these watermelon (shaped) cookies are easy and so fun!


How to:
1. Simply add a few drops of green food coloring to some sugar cookie dough, roll in balls, and bake as directed.  
2. Once the cookies are baked, divide the cookies in half using a spatula or knife.
3. After the cookies have fully cooled, add a few drops of pink food coloring to your frosting and frost your cookies.
4. Finish by adding mini chocolate chips on top. 



TWO  |  Simple Sangria 

I’m all about simple, and this sangria is simple!

Mix together red wine, grapefruit San Pellegrino, and some berries… refrigerate for 10 minutes and ta-da! 

 A super easy (and tasty) cocktail... great for a week night drink!  And the little bit of fancy from the San Pellegrino is perfect addition!



THREE  |  Blogiversary! 

As of yesterday, I have officially been blogging for one year! Whoohoo!

Happy 1st birthday little bloggity blog! 



FOUR  |  Crawfish Boil 

One of John’s coworkers is hosting a crawfish boil this weekend, and I am quite excited!  
The best part?  Our doggie Scout is invited too!

A few years back, John and I hosted a crawfish boil for his friends from law school, and it turns out crawfish aren’t all that bad (but there is still no way I’m about to suck the heads…). 




FIVE  |  Oh, Baby! Bad Baby Photos 

You may have already seen this link from The Ellen DeGeneres Show, but it is wayyy too funny not to share again.  Like, really funny.  I was at work when I saw this, and I was dying laughing.

Below you’ll find a couple of my favorites.
