Five on Friday {April 12}

Hey y'all,

We made it to Friday! I am excited for a pretty calm weekend over here. My only big plans involve a picnic with other Pre-K leaders after church on Sunday. I am ready to deep clean, take some naps, and read this weekend. Here are five things I am loving this week:

one. Afternoon Tea Cookoff.

My work hosted an afternoon tea cookoff this week and I submitted banana chocolate chip mini-muffins using Robyn's recipe. They were great but did not place in the competition. My co-worker's amazing cardamon and chai ganache macarons won.

two. Easter card.

My parents are the sweetest and while they will be traveling during the holiday, they still sent us kids a treat and card to celebrate. Now I just need to go purchase some Reese's eggs before they disappear from stores.

three. Southern Women's Show.

Last night I was able to attend a preview of the Southern Women's Show here in Raleigh this weekend. The show kicks off today at 10am if you are in the area and want to check it out at the state fairgrounds. It was a fun blogger event filled with treats, wine, and some fun swag from the vendors.
The event is only $10 if you purchase your tickets online ($12 at the door) and includes amazing vendors from around the state, fashion shows, celebrity guests (like Tyson Beckford and Monty Durham), and food. Here's the stage schedule.
The Food Lion stage included a wonderful demo of a black and blue steak flatbread that was amazing!

four. She Reads Truth study.

This week started the She Read's Truth Easter study called Because He Lives. I have loved this first week since it has been focused on our need for a savior. You can catch up on the reading here.

five. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

I watched this Youtube series a few years ago but after chatting with friends a few weeks ago I was reminded of the show and rewatched the 100 episode web series. If you are a Pride and Prejudice fan, this is one of my favorite adaptations. It is a vlog-style show where Lizzie is a graduate student and the diary is her thesis.
