Five on Friday

My favorite things this week...

1.  Nantucket Grill in Raleigh.  Yum yum!  Our manager treated us to this deliciousness at our monthly meeting and it did not disappoint.  I want to take R  here to eat so he can taste just how fabulous their macaroni and cheese casserole really is. And the dessert!  I had a piece of banana nut bread and it was amazing.  This preggo girl was very very happy after this meal.

2.  Zantac 75.  Because I can't live with reflux.  Earlier this week I couldn't drink water without feeling that awful burning.  Most acid reducing medication is considered safe in pregnancy but it didn't make me feel any better about taking it.  However I have to be able to eat and drink and work without feeling like I'm about to be sick.  I started with one tablet a day and I'll increase to two if necessary. So far it's much better.

3.  Lilly Pulitzer 2014-2015 large agenda in Trippin and Sippin.  Yep, I went back to my trusty Lilly planner.  I looked at a lot of planners. A. Lot. But this one had everything I wanted, sturdy binding, a place for notes and birthdays, and monthly/daily sections.  I don't do the crafty, washi tape decorating in my notes and truthfully I don't even use the stickers that Lilly provides but I do love the pretty designs on the page.  I missed it this year with my Kate Spade planner.  I also noticed that my Kate Spade planner didn't hold up as well - the binding or the design on the outside.  I heavily use my planner and it needs to be able to stand up to frequent daily use.

4.  This scarf from Target has been shown on so many blogs recently, but I didn't think much of it until I walked by it in the store.  It's perfect for Winter and I'm considering wearing it in our Christmas photo.  I realize that I'm late on that bandwagon, we have GOT to get our holiday picture done soon.  It hasn't been cold enough to wear it yet but with the chill from Thursday afternoon I have a feeling I'll be wearing it this weekend.

5.  Black Friday baby!  The countdown has begun and now that I know my sweet nugget is a girl I can plan to go on a spree for her.  The first circulars went out this week for the big holiday weekend sales and I'm expecting more in my inbox next week.  I have already starting mapping a plan, a list, and a budget.  There are so many things that I want to get RIGHT NOW but I'm trying to hold off a couple more weeks hoping that it will pay off in the end.  R and I have busy upcoming week and weekend so I'm glad I can start planning early.

Thanks to all the hostesses this week!


  1. I have been wanting to try Nantucket Grill! After so many people have said good things about it I will put it on my list to try! And I totally agree about the Lilly planner. I love my Lilly planner - I have two one large one that sits on my desk at work and one of the smallest ones to go in my purse. They are great and they hold up so well the little one stays in my purse all the time and as much as I go in and out of my purse and throw everything in there after 6 months there is still no wear and tear on it!

    1. Nantucket Grill has the best carbs - the mac and cheese and mashed potatoes are worth the treadmill time. I have the best luck with Lilly planners, I strayed last year and was so unhappy. I went with something that looked a bit more professional but by the end of the year it just looks worn. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I bought an Erin Condren planner for the first time this year and loved it. I'm not normally a planner, girl, but I'm a little surprised how much I wound up using it. Of course it helped that I've been pregnant through most of the year and needed somewhere to write my appointments down. But even so, I think I'm officially on the planner bandwagon and need to get on ordering my 2015 one!
