TGIF, holllla!

Ahem, hello and welcome to the weekend! How’d your week go? Usually the days following a holiday seem to drag but this week absolutely flew by. Can’t believe we’re already closing out the second week in July! I’m thinking about making a bucket list to maximize the rest of the summer. Things to include:

Hmmm, that’s all I can think of right now. What’s on your list? 

Whatever you do have a wonderful weekend and in the meantime please enjoy my favorite finds from around the web and beyond in this week’s Friday Favorites!

Favorite throw back: Beefaroni. Dude, Beefaroni was my JAM growing up! So excited to see a fresh, homemade version with way less salt than it’s canned counterpart.

Favorite joe: Califia Farms Cafe Latta Iced Coffee. I tried this iced coffee at Whole Foods a few weeks ago and am HOOKED. With just three ingredients – coffee, almond milk, and sugar – it is a serious treat. Not Go Sugar Free-friendly of course, but very pure tasting. Obsessed.

Favorite fiesta: Roasted Corn Fiesta Guacamole. Well doesn’t this just look like a party on a plate? Love including tasty add-ins to my guacamole. I especially love this presentation – I’d eat it as a meal!

Favorite travel: America’s Best Swimming Holes. Nothin’ better than a good ol’ swimmin’ hole, right? Bahahaha. Seriously though, what an awesome list. I’ve actually included a bunch of these in past Friday Favorites. That’d be a fun bucket list – visit all of America’s favorite swimming holes in one summer.

Favorite bite: Crispy Fish Tacos with Jalapeno Sauce. I fell in love with fish tacos many years ago in San Diego, and this version from Pinch of Yum looks incredibly zesty and flavorful. Beautiful, too!

Favorite funny: 25 Husbands That Must Be Stopped. I laughed ’til I cried reading through this list. Probably because Ben would try and pull every single one of them. After reading through the list himself…he agreed.

Favorite fix up: 10 Totally Ingenious, Ridiculously Stylish IKEA Hacks. Great roundup, especially this Dipped Console Table that I could use in about 15 different places around the house!

Favorite fresh: Grilled Veggie Fajita Salad. I cannot get enough fajitas these days. I’ve ordered them at my favorite Mexican restaurant (Monterrey) no less than 3 times in the past 3 weeks, and this at-home veggie-version looks top notch.

Favorite fashion: Kale Sweatshirt (as seen on Catherine!) When I saw this adorable sweatshirt on the even more adorable Catherine of Rabbit Food for my Bunny Teeth, I knew I had to have it. Kale > Yale. When it comes to sweatshirts anyway. ;)

Favorite easy: Easy Chicken Tamale Burrito Bowls. Ben and I were watching The Kitchen on Food Network last weekend and they introduced a new segment called “Easy Mexican Food” or something like that. Point being, every week they’re going to show how easy it is to make classic Mexican dishes at home. Well, they started with tamales and after watching one of the hosts try and make a few it was clear that tamales was probably not the best choice for the opening segment. It was a mess! That said, I was thrilled to see this recipe from Tieghan because it looks absolutely delicious, and so much easier than making terrible-looking tamale after tamale!

Favorite sip: Sweet Tea Swagger. The only thing I love better than the name is the combo of refreshing ingredients in this perfectly-summer sip. YUM.

Favorite instagram: Murad Osmann. I featured this insta-famous photographer in a Friday Favorites post last year, and recently “rediscovered” him again. The shots he posts of his girlfriend leading him by the hand to exotic places around the world have just gotten better and better. You must check him out!

Favorite frosty: Birthday Cake Milkshake. About to bake me a gluten-free cake just so I can make this yummy milkshake. Wow!

Favorite fun: Jumbo Popsicle Garland. How adorable would this be for a festive summer party? You’ve got to check out what the “popsicles” are made from, too.

Favorite redo: Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies. I trust that when my girl Ali says this is her new favorite CCC recipe, it’s probably going to be my new favorite CCC recipe too. (Plus, what a stunning photo!)

TGIF, everyone (and Friday the 13th to boot – muwahaha!) How was your week? Mine flew by with the help of some pool time with the L-man, and gosh I don’t even know what else has kept us so busy! I’m excited for the weekend though as it’s the first one…

Apparently early May showers bring late May flowers because the gardens at Casa de IGE were off and running this week, including my very own lilacs – huzzah! I kid you not, one of the things that sold me on our new home when we were moving last year was the two…

Happy Friday, everyone! Gosh this week flew by, didn’t it? I could really use one more day to catch up! Plus I feel like it always takes me two weeks to get back into the swing of things after vacation. Gone for 3 days, messed up for 14. Please tell me I’m not alone?…

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you had a nice week! I always thought I could live in the Pacific Northwest because of the weather. I really, really love the rain. It’s just so cozy, right? Well, when you have a 9 month old it’s not quite the same. It’s been raining for a…
