Friday Five {Vol 11}

4/11/14

The things I'm loving this week are completely random and maybe even a little laugh out loud worthy ;)

McCormick Brown Sugar Bourbon marinade
We use this marinade on e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g and it is delicious every single time! We love it the most with grilled chicken though.


Oxo Mini Measuring Cup
I picked this up last week while grocery shopping and Thomas wasn't really amused, but once he used it he totally changed his tune! It makes measuring 3tbs of oil extremely easy. #wifeforthewin

Ziploc Marinade bags
Continuing on with the cooking favorites of the moment- I found these last week at the grocery store and they're great! We used Ziploc gallon bags before and while those work just fine I like the expandable bottom of these. The only downfall is that they're only available in 1/2 gallon size so you can't use a ton of meat.

Slow Cooker Liners
These are one of the best things I've discovered all year! Literally no clean up required. Worth the .35 cents/each if you ask me ;)

C9 Seamless Sports Bra
I know I've blogged about the fact that I wear sports bras 80% of the time {hey I'm a nanny!} and these ones are my favorite. The can be worn like a normal bra {not crisscrossed in the back} and they're extremely comfortable. They're also only $17 at full price and there is always sales/Cartwheel deals on C9 apparel. I have a black one and this aqua one above, which is light enough to wear under a lot of my light colored shirts. I do wish they'd make a white/ivory colored one for under white/really light shirts though.

Told you it was completely random and mostly food/cooking based ;) What are you loving this week?

    1. I don't go to Walmart very often, because it requires a Xanax lol, but Thomas buys his ammo there so next time he needs more I'll check it out!
