Friday Five

Mar 9, 2012

{1} Caffeine Crawl. I won two tickets via twitter to attend this event tomorrow. Quite excited.

{2} Schlafly Oyster and Stout Festival. I went to this festival at a local brewery last night and had oysters for the first time ever. The event included: a great beer selection (I had a everything from a pale ale to an oatmeal stout. Read about their beers here.), fresh oysters, live shucking, and even an oyster shucking contest. It opens this weekend, so if you are in the St. Louis area you should check it out.
Fresh oysters from different regions

Live shucking

Later in the night I took a tour down to the beer cellar where they store the beers and tasted some beers sgtraight out of the tanks.

{3} Beauty Balm. After seeing Jenna's post about it I have been obsessing and think I am going to Sephora on lunch.


{4} Cowl Scarf. It finally got chilly enough for me to wear the cowl scarf my mom made me. Love casual Fridays.

{5} Bake. Ashley posted a recipe for Cranberry Oat and Honey Bread the other day. I have all the ingredients in the cupboard, so I plan to bake it this weekend.

Happy Friday. I hope you have exciting (or relaxing) weekends ahead of you.
