Five on Friday - Smoothies, Free Giftcards + In-N-Out

I've got a couple things to share with you all today, so let's begin...

ONE// Farmhouse Table
Ok so remember when I shared here that my husband has the whole week of December off and how I had a list of projects for him to do? Well he's ALMOST done with the first one guys and it's only been a week! I LOVE that man! lol So he's been wanting a playstation for a while now and he was about to buy it but then I talked him out of it and told him he should buy tools so he could build stuff for the house instead. I can't believe it worked! He's been working in the garage ALL week! I think our table will be ready and assembled by Sunday. Now I need to find some chairs.

TWO// Smoothies
This is what my husband and I have been having for breakfast each morning. 
The smoothie on the left is what we usually have which is:
-vanilla whey protein
-chia seeds
-almond milk

The one on the right is what we had today:
-vanilla why protein
-chia seeds
-almond milk
We are both trying to loose weight and eat healthy. So far we are doing great! He lost about 3lbs this week and I lost 3lbs as well. I hope we don't gain it back this weekend. 

THREE// Ebates
I discovered Ebates a couple weeks ago. I can't believe I hadn't heard of it until now! I mean this is perfect for online shoppers like me! You basically get a percentage back for shopping online. You get money back for something you already do! For instance say you're gonna shop for a new pair of jeans at Gap. All you do is go to Ebatessearch for Gap and see what percentage back you will get. Then click on the link and it directs you to Gap. It will track your purchase and whatever you end up spending you will get a percentage back. I've done some online shopping and here's what I will be getting back for doing something I was already gonna do...
You get a $10 giftcard to the store of your choice when you sign up and make a purchase using their links. I did and I got my giftcard yesterday!! Of course I chose Target! 

If you haven't signed up yet SIGN UP HERE I get $ for referring you and you get a $10 giftcard! WIN-WIN! Plus I would LOVE you forever :) 

FOUR// In-N-Out
I DON'T like it! There I've said it.
I'm sure some of you are GASPING right now. I know LOTS of people really like it. I see it all over Instagram and such but I just DON'T GET IT. It's not good. I tried! I REALLY tried to like it. I mean it's pretty to take pictures of and it looks cool but it doesn't taste good. I tried it twice in Fort Worth and now that they opened one nearby I thought I would give the "animal style" thing a try and I disliked it even more. 

Here's what I think:
-The fries taste like NOTHING. I felt like I was eating cardboard. They're not crunchy like fries should be. Even when I asked for "well done" fries they were just blah.
McDonald's fries are better and I don't even like McDonald's.
-The bun is spongy.. in a bad way. 
-The sauce is nasty.
-The meat is just average. 

You want to know the ONLY thing I liked about In-N-Out? Their Sweet Tea. lol
Overall I'm dissapointed. I will not be going back to In-N-Out. I VERY MUCH prefer Whataburger.
Don't hate me!! 

FIVE// Giveaway
My sponsors, bloggy friends + I have an AMAZING giveaway for you all next week so stay tuned!
If you would like to be a part of this AWESOME giveaway I do have just TWO spots available so e-mail me TODAY (friday) for more info.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend + stay warm!


  1. Ebates is the greatest thing EVER!! I'm with you on In N Out fries, but I do really, really love their burgers. I love the sauce and I love the sandwich, but I do think it's highly overrated ;)

  2. Okay, I totally need to try ebates. Read about it a couple of times, but you totally just put me over the edge!!! Hope you had a lovely weekend, girlie! xx

  3. I signed up for Ebates a couple weeks back but haven't tried it. Thanks to your post I will have to give it a try.


I would LOVE to hear from you! :)
