Five on Friday

TGIF Friends! It's been awhile since I did a Five on Friday so I thought I would join in today.

1.  This Video

First of all I love the song Africa by Toto.  My best friend and I from college would get drunk and blast it in our dorm room sophmore year ;)  It was one of our go to karaoke songs and we played it at both of our weddings!  Secondly I just want to be couple friends with Kristen and Dax, I mean my boys are close to their girls ages so we could totally do a drinking playdate ;)

2. Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-1 Skin Perfector 

I picked up this BB cream this week after reading a ton of good reviews about it.  It came up as one of those drug store products that professional makeup artists recommend so I had to give it a try.  I was looking for something to even my skin tone for everyday wear when I feel like foundation is too much.  I also needed something light and creamy since my skin is so dry.  I've only been using this for a 5 days but so far I love it!  Goes on really easily, evens my skin tone out and does not dry my face or look flaky.  It's a win so far but I will keep you posted longer I use it.

3. New Watch

Since it's my birthday next month I'm thinking of treating myself to a new watch.   I've had my eye on the few I posted above but I can't decide.  I love the black faces but I'm afraid I will be over them in the spring.  Does anyone have a watch they absolutely love that they would recommend?!

4.  Chocolate Chip Cookies with Whole Wheat Flour and Olive Oil 

Miller really wanted to make cookies the other day but we were all out of butter so I went searching on Pinterest for a recipe that used oil instead and was maybe a little healthier.  I stumbled upon this recipe from Ambitious Kitchen and it was perfect.  The recipe uses brown sugar and molasses to sweeten it, in addition to the olive oil instead of butter and whole wheat flour.   Olive oil tends to be a no-no in baking because it has such a strong flavor but using only two tablespoons you couldn't taste it at all.  Miller loved them and so did I, Kyle thought they tasted weird and not like a real cookie but I thought they were great for a "healthy cookie"

    So, you didn't have butter, but you had molasses? That's impressive!

  7. Those chocolate chip cookies look amazing!! Definitely going to try that recipe!! Have a great Friday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  8. I have the Kate Spade Gramercy watch and love it- the face is fairly petite which I love because I can stack a few bracelets with it without it feeling too "chunky". That cookie recipe seriously looks amazing, I'll have to try it! xo, S

  9. That video legitimately gives me life. I love it way more than any one person should. #noshame

  10. Too true on that last one! I swear some mothers are so put together and than there's me looking like a lunatic chasing after a two year old.

    A friend of mine has the bradshaw and said it has really kept up to the test of time with staying gold.
