Five Things Friday #86 - Erin's Inside Job

Five Things Friday #86

Happy Friday friends!

It’s been a crazy week and it’ll be an even crazier weekend, but all good things! Yesterday Neil and I flew to Nashville so that I could speak at the Mental Health Marketing Conference. I plan to write up a more thorough recap next week, but so far it’s been awesome!

We are here through tonight and then fly out to MD tomorrow to spend the weekend with Neil’s parents who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Say whaaaa? Be sure to follow along on Instagram or just check back on Monday for a run through of all the adventures!

Since it wouldn’t be Friday without sharing some of my favorite things from the week, here we go!

1. Flowers

I bought some flowers from Trader Joe’s the other day (seriously, their flowers are SO cheap) and it helped brighten up the gloomy weather we’ve had the past few days. Whenever the weather starts to warm up, I love buying myself flowers and putting them all over the house. They make me happy inside.


2. This shirt

I have written about Eat Healthy Designs before, and the dayΒ they launched their summer collection, I immediately bought this shirt. On the train. From my phone.

They have already had a peanut butter version, but since I eat roughly my weight in almond butter in a week, I knew this had to be mine. It is ridiculously soft and comfortable and I can’t wait to wear it more. I’m terrified of it shrinking in the dryer, so I may just let it air dry. Lord knows I already have to do enough of that with all my exercise clothes.

BONUS: From now until the end of May, if you use the code ERINEATS15, you will get 15% off your order!!

3. Super-sized GT’s kombucha

The last time I bought a case of kombucha at Whole Foods, the cashier asked if I had seen the “big” kombuchas they recently got in. I was in a rush so I said no but that I would check them out later. Then I forgot.

I went back over the weekend to pick up another case because I have a problem and I happened to get the same cashier who again asked me if I had seen the larger bottles. This time I paid for everything and walked back to see what she was talking about. I didn’t know it was a larger version of GINGERADE, the best flavor ever made! I thought it was some other brand, but I immediately grabbed it and bought it as well.

It’s 48 ounces, so the seize of 3 regular bottles. And it was only about twice the price of one. The only problem is that it loses its carbonation from drinking it over a couple days, but if that’s not a big deal for you, then go for it. It’s a game changer.

4. Probation is OVER

I mentioned this on IG and FB earlier this week, as well as centering yesterday’s post around it, but I am LOVING that my 5 years of supervised probation is UP.

Mexico, here I come…next month.

5. Conference

As I mentioned at the beginning, I am currently in Nashville and spoke at the Mental Health Marketing conference yesterday. It was such an enriching time and I loved being able to go beyond my blog to share how authenticity and transparency are important for growing a brand and an engaged audience. Today = ALL THE FOOD.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to catching up with you next week!

  1. Those flowers are so pretty! If my house wasn’t in a perpetual state of clutter and toddler destruction, I’d buy some too.
    That tank top is awesome. I couldn’t resist and got the Brusslin’ shirt and a pineapple tank (I air-dry mine just FYI – I should’ve sized up) and now I want all the things! πŸ™‚
    Hope you enjoy your last day in Nashville!
