Happy Friday everyone!
Gosh, it’s been a crazy week trying to get back into the swing of things after vacation. You know how it goes! I’m excited to relax, re-assess and get my life back in order this weekend. It’s supposed to be chilly, which will help force me to stay indoors and get organized.
What are your weekend plans? Got any weddings to go to?
I feel like I’m seriously lacking in weddings to attend this spring and summer, and you know how much I adore them. Sigh. Come on, guys – pop that question!
Random thoughts aside, have a wonderful weekend, and please enjoy my favorite finds from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites!
Favorite devour: Red Velvet Brownies. Red, chocolate, chewy lusciousness. OMG.
Favorite print. Gosh, so true!
Favorite bite: Apricot & Goat Cheese Bites. Ummmm, pretty much all my favorite things in one poppable bite. So genius.
Favorite color pop. I adore the gold accents with the bright fuschia and tangerine colors of the dress. The turquoise purse totally takes it over the top.
Favorite picture. Pure happiness! I need this as a poster, or something.
Favorite funny. Engaged people – you HAVE TO DO THIS on your wedding day!!!!
Favorite supper: Martha Stewart’s Half Hour Chicken Gumbo. The weather has gone from high 80s everyday down to the 50s over the past couple of weeks, which makes coming home to a hot pot of hearty soup ready in half hour sound blissfully cozy.
Favorite tank: J Crew Stripes. For, you know, when the weather gets back into the 80s!
Favorite DIY: Knock-Off Anthropologie Letters. Brilliant, and CHEAP!
Favorite mouthwater: La Jolla Crab Stack. The epitome of refreshing. Summer. Fresh.
Favorite home accent: Giraffe Bookends. Just the feel of this makes me want to go on safari.
Favorite show: GCB. If I had to give up all shows to watch just one show…it would for sure be GCB (stands for Good Christian B!itches.) It is SO hilarious and smart – it actually makes me look forward to Sunday nights!
Favorite healthy sweet: Lemon & Zucchini Muffins. Fluffy, moist zucchini muffins, with a sweet, lemon twist. These will definitely be made this summer!
Favorite sigh: Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy. I wish I was someone who could sweetly say, awww, remember when?! after seeing something that reminds them of an epic vacation. My response is usually a wailing WHYYYYYYYY??? WHY CAN’T I GO BACK?!” Ahem! Anyways, this snapshot made my heart absolutely ache for the Amalfi Coast adventure Ben and I took a couple years ago. The little beach in the back right is “our beach”!
Favorite squeal. Hot sand! Hot sand! Hot sand!
Favorite tip: Dish Soap in Oil Bottles. Keep dish soap handy without having to look at unsightly bottles, by pouring it into pretty liquid dispensers!
Favorite sip: Strawberry Basil Sangria. I am so intrigued by this herby-sweet concoction. I can’t wait to try it!
Favorite find: Swimsuit Cover Up Wrap. Love this unique, wrappy swimsuit coverup. Check out the how-to!
Favorite summer treat: Vanilla Cake with Strawberry Cream Frosting. Can you tell I’m loving the strawberries lately?! They’ve been out in full force at the grocery stores lately. I’m trying to tell myself to wait just a little bit longer to buy some, but it’s hard!
Favorite relax: Wine Holding Chair. Yes, please. Two, please.
Favorite nosh: Spicy Fries with Garlic Cheese Sauce. IN MAH FACE!
Have an awesome weekend everyone!
