Friday Five: What I'm Loving

One: My Pantry
Yesterday I spent close to three hour organizing my pantry and the kitchen cabinets in my house.  A few bags of trash later...and they are all organized! I really do have an odd infatuation with organizing things.  I honestly think I could become a professional organizer.  People could just pay me to come to their home to organize their closets, drawers, rooms, desks, etc.  That would be ideal, but I don't think such a profession exists.  My parents were delighted when they came home from work and saw this and the other cabinets.  One less thing they have to do over their three day weekend. The picture to the left is the before picture, but I had already taken some of the stuff out before this was taken, oops! Obviously, the picture to the right is the finished product.

Two: Earrings
This week my mom and I went to a little boutique that has tons of jewelry for decent prices.  I bought these anchor earrings for $14.  I love them! They are so simple and classy, plus a little preppy too.  I don't usually like gold jewelry but there is always an exception. 
Three: Riley
This is what I woke up to this morning.  My yorkie, Riley, cuddled up at the foot of my bed.  I love when this happens.  He is the best dog and has such a personality for such a small dog.  We have been having a lazy morning together just laying in my bed.  He is definitely happy to have me living back at home.  While I was away at school, my dad became his favorite person in the house.  However, since I am back home my Dad claims that I am back to having Riley's #1 favorite person spot back again. 

Four: The Best of Me
I stumbled across this book when I was cleaning my room a few weeks ago.  I didn't even know I owned it, awkward.  Anyways, I am not much of a reader usually, but on my summer bucket list I have that I want to finish five books.  I am a third of the way done this one.  It is really good. I am getting to the point where it is hard to put it down.  This is not like me, when did I become a reader?  I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a mindless book to read, it would be a great one to read on the beach.

Five: Salads 
The salads I have been making this week have been delicious!  I use pretty much whatever I can find in the fridge.  I guess you could call them leftover salads. This one has grilled chicken, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, noodles, romaine lettuce, and champagne dressing.  I have made variations of this salad using red pepper, avocados, cucumbers, and black beans.  They are quite filling, and healthy too!

Happy Friday
