Five on Friday Through Instagram Pics

The week is almost over, just a few more hours and it will finally be the weekend.  We've got a fun-filled weekend in store.  Tonight T and I are going to Charlotte to spend the night with my sister April and her husband Ian.  On Saturday we'll head up to Raleigh for my cousin Drew's wedding.

This week's Friday Five is comprised of all Instagram pictures that were posted this week.  If you don't follow me you should!  Find me at @thereedyreview.

{one}  Fresh Summertime Food-  I love a fresh summertime side dish, and I love it even more when there is no cooking involved. Earlier this week I just sliced up some tomatoes, avocado, and red onion.  Made a mixture of lime juice, EVOO, and cilantro and poured it over the veggies.  Let it sit in the fridge for 30 or so minutes and it was so good!  It tasted a lot like ceviche without the seafood.  Next time I'm tempted to add some shrimp in the mix too, and make a whole meal out of it.   

{two} While I do love fresh healthy side dishes, this southern girl loves her fried food. T and I whipped up these Fried Pickled Okra for an afternoon snack on Sunday.  Holy Moly were they good, especially when we dipped them in Chipotle Ranch. Come to mama.  

{three} Downtown Alive on Thursday Nights- Last night we joined friends at Downtown Alive in Greenville.  One of our Clemson favorites Doug McCormick was performing and we all got together to see him and celebrate our friend Sallie's birthday.

T also got some new sunnies.  What to ya think?  I think I've finally gotten him to branch out from the frat boy Costa Del Mar's that he's had since 2006.  Now he's just upgraded to the frat boy Wayfarers...I'll take what I can get. 

{four} Chick-fil-a Treats- I've had to go to the doctor TWICE this week.  When I was little my mom used to always treat us with an ice cream cone when we had to get shots at the pediatrician.  Now even as an adult, I make sure to reward myself with a calorie-loaded scrumptious treat.  Monday morning I indulged in Chick-fil-a breakfast and you better believe that after my appointment this afternoon I'm going right back to that drive through.  I'm already fantasizing about which combination number I'll be getting this time. 

{five} Dry Rosé- I sometimes hesitate to drink a this in public with the fear that someone thinks I've ordered White Zin. Thank goodness Lisa Vanderpump helped get the word out that rosé wines aren't the same as your mama's boxed blush.   I do love a glass of cold rosé in the warm weather, and thoroughly enjoyed this one during a work lunch.  


  1. Hi from another Greenville Gal! :) Glad to have found another blogging buddy from Gville! We should do a "Greenville Social" like the Charlotte girls!

    1. Dawn, I'm glad you found me too! There are not many Greenville bloggers, and I've had a tough time connecting with anyone local. I think you're on to something with the "Greenville Social". What's your URL?

  2. T in those sunglasses = perfect! Love them!

    Can't wait for fun weekend shenanigans together :)

  3. I totally want to make both of those! They look delish.
