Happy Friday, y’all!

Thank you for the well wishes yesterday! Ben and I went out for a nice, romantic dinner, and sipped on what has become my new favorite drink – a Georgia Jack Ass. It’s a Moscow Mule (vodka, ginger beer, and lime) made with peach vodka. BEST DRINK EVER!

I already have plans to make a Des Moines Donkey. Just deciding on what flavor of vodka to use. Perhaps a sweet corn vodka infusion sesh is in order?! ;)

At any rate, I’m off to finish getting the house ready for Ben’s family, who arrives tonight, and to start PACKING! I can practically feel the warm, Jamaican sand between my toes! Have an awesome weekend everyone, and please enjoy my favorite finds from the web and beyond in this week’s Friday Favorites! :D

Favorite drool: Grilled Chese Sandwich. If the owner of this sammich could come make it for me ASAP that’d be great, mmkay? Thanks.

Favorite jeans: MiH Marrakesh Jeans. A friend of mine was wearing these jeans at the shower last weekend, and they are STUNNING! At least half the girls there asked her where she got them. The fabric looks like a fine corduroy/denim/linen mix, and apparently you can find them for much cheaper by digging around the web a bit!

Favorite idea: Cinnamon Rolls cooked in Oranges. I suppose it’d be easier to convince me to go camping if I was promised cinnamon rolls cooked in hollowed out orange halves over the campfire in the morning. :)

Favorite wow: Chopped Avocado Salad. Looks super impressive, but directions sound really easy. The best kind of dish!

Favorite tip. Line a crispy taco shell with a large leaf of lettuce. When you bite in and the shell inevitably shatters, the lettuce will hold all your toppings together. Why didn’t I think of that?!

Favorite top: Twist & Flounce Tank. Adore the corkscrew twist, color, AND long length!

Favorite bar: Warm Toasted Marshmallow S’mores Bars. My little brother emailed these to me with the words “this” or “giddyup” or something to that effect. Couldn’t have said it better myself, bro! ;)
