Five for Friday

Hello and welcome to my Five for Friday! I hope you all had a great week! I am linking up with Cup of Tea , Della Devoted Bright on a Budget and Coffee With Caitlin!

1. I made some lemon curd last week, which means I had a bunch of egg whites left over, so I decided to give this white almond cake recipe a try. The cake was SO good! I will definitely be making it again!
2. This week has been pretty uneventful, but we did get to vote in the primary on Tuesday. It was my sisters first time voting so she was pretty excited!

3. So there was a bit of an awkward situation at work yesterday! My boss hired a PR company to handle all of our PR and social media and they thought it would be a great idea to take pictures of all of the employees. Do you even know how awkward it is to try to work while someone is taking pictures!?!

And then they were like, "We're going to take headshots of you all in your work environments!"

Of course I'm first so when the photographer (with his odd, off brand camera for the record lol) comes over, I look up and hope I look friendly enough.
Well, I wasn't quite so enthusiastic, but you get the point! I'm standing there, looking at the camera, waiting, and he's not taking a picture. A few awkward moments go by and then he's all "Oh, I'm taking a video."
Um. Thanks for letting me know sooner! So now there's probably going to be a really awkward picture/video of me on the company's website! 

My coworker and I told our boss he couldn't post anything on the website without our approval, but I don't know if that will happen! (I know my boss would show us, but I don't know if the PR company will wait for our approval or not.)

Anyways, talk about awkward!

4. I finally got my Target Beauty Box! I'm anxious to try everything out and I'll be posting a full review soon!
5. In case you missed any of my posts from the week, on Monday I blogged about some pictures from the Skagit Valley tulip festival from several years ago, and then on Wednesday I did a Currently post!

Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. UGH those kind of work situations are the worst! I got enlisted to be in company photos at my old job and it was so.awkward! Hope your weekend is better than that! :) And that cake looks amazing!

    1. I know! It was just so weird! I definitely hope I don't have any other awkward experiences over the weekend! And the cake was definitely good!

  2. Ahhh yay! Another northwest girl! We never went to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival when we lived in Seattle even though we meant to. Might have to make a trip all the way from Portland to see it now! That cake looks and sounds so delicious!

    1. That's the same thing I thought when I came across your blog! You should make a trip up there someday! I know there is one in Woodburn that looks pretty neat!
      Have a great weekend!

  3. My Target BB arrived damaged:/ the spray leaked out everywhere. AND your cake looks/sounds delicious!

    1. Oh no! That stinks! I wasn't real impressed with the spray, so in my opinion, you aren't really missing out! But it's still nice to at least be able to try it!
      Thanks! It tasted pretty great too! :)
