FRIDAY: High Five

Holiday Beauty Gifts and Friday High Five
Happy Friday everyone. If you’re here in the United States, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with family and feasting. I’m blessed to have my family here in Los Angeles where we can spend holidays together. We all make two or three dishes and still follow tradition and gather at my parent’s house. How lucky am I?

So on this day after Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks for a wonderful week and maybe do a little shopping. Here’s what I’m high fiving about this week.

FRIDAY: High Five

Happy Friday friends. It’s time for the Friday High Five. Five things I’m high fiving about this week. How about you? I hope you had plenty to high five about lately.

Enjoy the weekend. If you’re celebrating a special guy this weekend on Father’s Day, I hope you have a wonderful day.

1-AI’ve been obsessed with smoothies lately and stocked up on straws so I can have my daily fix. My latest flavor of the week is Pineapple Coconut. I’ll be posting about this concoction soon.

FRIDAY: High Five

I’ve been so busy lately I haven’t been posting my Friday High Five. The Friday High Five is all about 5 things from my week. An accomplishment, fun outing, something I bought or want to buy… anything that I want to high five about. And since it’s been, like forever since my last high five post. These photos are from the past month. So without further ado, here are the latest things I’m high fiving about.

Lemon Pound CakeThe month started with another business trip to Washington. Every few months, I travel to Seattle / Bellevue and work from the corporate office. It’s always jam packed with meetings, social outings and sore feet. When I leave and after I make it through TSA, I always treat myself to the lemon pound cake and CafĂ© Mocha from the airport Starbucks. My new obsession is to substitute regular milk for coconut milk.

Friday: High Five



Happy Friday friends. Today’s High Five actually contains 6 things because I was browsing some of Target’s new products and loved them all equally. I think my new dining room makeover has me itching to freshen everything, including dishes, flatware and then move to other areas in my house. Does that happen to you? You change one thing and then suddenly notice how bad everything else looks. Sigh... it's a vicious cycle.

FRIDAY: High Five

Happy Friday everyone. I haven’t posted a Friday High Five in awhile. I feel like I’ve been playing catch up since the holidays. But this week I have plenty to high five about. How about you? What are you high fiving about this week? Do tell….

Friday High Five via homework (4)I’ve been traveling for my day job quite a bit and snapped this picture descending into Seattle, Washington. Just breathtaking. The good news is, I won’t be traveling for a 2 or 3 months so I can get caught up on fun things like creating goodies for this blog.

FRIDAY: High Five

Happy Friday everyone! What are you high-fiving about this week? I’m actually still out of town on business. I’m heading back this afternoon so chances are if you’re reading this later in the day, I’m on a plane heading home. Hooray for home sweet home. Wishing you a wonderful weekend – with the holidays behind us it’s nice to get back into a normal routine with a little relaxation time on the weekend. And now for my Friday High Five.

IMG_2767I made these brownie bites for the holidays and they were so delicious. I use Ghiradelli brownie mix (I think it’s the best), vanilla frosting and Hershey’s white chocolate peppermint candy. I prefer the soft white chocolate peppermint over the crushed hard candy canes on my brownies.

FRIDAY: High Five

It’s Friday – time for this week’s Friday High Five. What have you been high-fiving about this week? Christmas prep, holiday cards, or maybe just surviving the week is enough to high five about. I have to say, today is especially sweet because I’m taking a staycation next week. Yessiree, I’m taking the week off to do all things holiday prep related. Wish me luck, I have 7 days to shop, create and mail cards, ship gifts, bake, decorate and make handmade gift items. Piece of cake! Enjoy the weekend friends and take a stroll through my high five items for this past week.

IMG_2686I made this Goat Cheese, pistachio and honey drizzle appetizer for Thanksgiving and it was a hit as usual. Super simple but looks so fancy.

Here’s what I’m high-fiving about from this past week.

FRIDAY: High Five

It’s Friday – thank goodness or TGIF as we like to say. This week flew by in a flash and time is only going to start picking up speed as I fall further behind on the holiday to-do list. I need to start my online holiday shopping so that there’s time deliveries but first I should make a list. Oh, so much to do. Cards to make, goodies to bake, yes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

So, how was your week? Do you have anything to report and “high five” about?  Here’s what I’ve been up to this week and I’m high fiving over.

Friday High Five via homework (4)Coffee! I have to admit, I’m a caffeine addict. I probably drink 3-4 cups a day. I should probably cut back but that probably won’t happen anytime soon.

FRIDAY: High Five

Welcome to the second edition of Friday: High Five. Five snippets of my week – what I’ve been up to, creating, wearing, what I’ve accomplished or what is inspiring me at the moment. I’d love for you to let me know what you’re “high-fiving” about this week. Leave me a comment and let me know. 

Friday High Five - carolynshomework (3)I’ve been playing around with fall colors and this by far is my favorite color combination. Burnt orange and turquoise. I bought a package of these little tea lights and wrapped a pretty piece of turquoise velvet ribbon around the holder. I think one for each place setting at Thanksgiving will be perfect. What’s your favorite fall color combination?

Happy Friday everyone. I’m starting a new column on my blog called Friday High Five. These are just snippets of what I’ve been up to, inspirational ideas or anything that we can “high five” over. Woot. Most of these will just be shot with my phone as I muddle through the week. Have a great weekend. I’ll see you back here next week. Enjoy the first edition of Friday: High Five.

Friday High Five - Pressed leaves via homework (2)I gathered these leaves on my recent trip to Washington. I’m sure my co-workers thought this Cali girl was crazy picking up leaves in the office parking lot. I put them in a baggie and packed them in my suitcase. They made it back in one piece and I was able to press them. Upcoming project with the leaves and this pretty grey felt.
