Friday Five

1. Duke gets destroyed by Miami!
As a hardcore UNC fan I cheer for two teams: Carolina and Anyone Playing Duke. I even have a t-shirt with this motto. Thus, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Duke get pounded by Miami this past Wednesday night! Plus it was an exciting night for Miami- their rout of Duke marked the first time beating a #1 ranked team in school history. Then right after that UNC had a decisive victory over Georgia Tech! This was my favorite day thus far of the 2012-2013 college basketball season and I'm excited to see what's ahead in the next couple of months!

2. Cooking Lesson/Girls' Night
Last Friday one of my friends, who is an excellent cook, had a few of us over for an interactive cooking lesson. She walked us through the preparation of an impressive but not overly complicated entree: Cider-Glazed Chicken. It required a good bit of stove time but the end result was delicious and so worth it! The garnish of fried sage leaves added a nice touch. We enjoyed this dish with a side of broccoli and brown rice. It was so much fun learning how to prepare something new, eating, and chatting for hours with some good friends!

3. UGGs
During the frigid winter temperatures we've had recently I have lived in my classic tall UGG boots while relaxing at home. I know there's some mixed opinions about UGGs out there. While they definitely aren't as cute as cowgirl boots or riding boots they are so warm and comfortable. I've had mine for about two years and have enjoyed them.

One of my friends shared this recently. A great reminder that ups and downs are all part of life's journey!

5. New Lilly Dress

We may be having the coldest week of winter, but the UPS guy delivered my Easter dress the other day, which makes me even more ready for spring! I have wanted the Lilly Pulitzer Franco Dress in Multi Plaid Seersucker ever since it came out as part of the Summer 2012 collection. I never got it, so when I found it for 70% off at 6pm and they had exactly ONE left in my size I knew I had to jump on the opportunity! (PS. 6pm has lots of Lilly for great prices right now). I am looking forward to debuting this dress for Easter 2013 (March 31) and will of course wear it many more times after that!

Have a great weekend y'all!
