5 on Friday: Random Week's Goings On

And just like that, it's Friday. Here's a few things that are going on in our world this week.

1. easiest, best, pasta salad

Today Will was responsible for bringing a side dish to work for a bbq themed lunch they're having. I decided to make Caprese Pasta Salad. His mom cooked it a while back for us and we've been obsessed ever since. This is definitely one of those recipes you can throw together depending on taste. All you need is:

Bow Tie Pasta, cooked
Fresh Mozzarella, cubed
Grape Tomatoes, cubed
Fresh Basil, cut into ribbons
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinagar
Salt and Pepper

Combine, chill, and serve. It's amazing.

2. hot yoga

I haven't so much as thought of a workout in about a year. After moving away from my old yoga studio last summer, I pretty much gave up on any type of organized workout. But I'm ready to get back in the game. I've been researching places that offer hot yoga a little closer to my house, and there are a surprising amount of options. If anyone knows a good place in the east/north areas of Cincinnati, I'd love a recommendation.

3. baby sleep

What a mess. Or less a mess and more an adventure I guess. I've read all the books. Heard all the tricks. Gone from being dead set on getting on a schedule by 3 months, to not caring at all when she does what, and everywhere in between. Still not sure exactly where my parenting philosophy will end up lying, but I know one thing- it's hard to figure out. I still can't believe I'm responsible for making 100% of the decisions for this little person and what is best for her. Who gave me a baby?!

4. quote of the week

I saw this online and could not agree more. I really believe there are very few "bad" things in life, just tough things we need to teach us what we need to learn.

5. rodan + fields

I need the scoop. Does anyone have experience using or selling this product? I am considering doing both. I have a friend that swears by it, but I definitely need to do my research.

And that's my five! Linking up with the ladies below. Happy Weekend!

That salad looks amazing! I might have to give it a try! Though, I always seem to add too much of the oil and vinegar. Maybe it'll work this time? I hope you can figure out the whole sleeping/schedule thing. It's hard, but you're doing a great job!
