Happy Friday… IT’S MOVING DAY!!!
Ahem! That is to say, we get the keys to our new house today and I could NOT be more excited! Hard to believe that just 5 months ago this wasn’t even really on our radar. I mean, we knew we’d probably be moving within the next couple of years, but just like that a decision was made and, well, here we are!
We’ll be moving a lot of little things this evening, then have a big U-haul + family and friends to help with all the big stuff Saturday…on the hottest forecasted day of the year. Eesh. I see lots of sweaty men and cold beer in our future.
Anyway, I’ll be spending the day packing up last minute stuff including a few remaining pots and pans, clothes, etc (luckily I started weeks ago so there’s not too much left!) then we will have our last sleep here before movin’ on up. WHEE. I hope to be blogging from my new kitchen on Monday but if you don’t hear from me, you’ll know why. : )
Until then, I hope you have a few wonderful plans for the weekend and in the meantime please enjoy my favorite finds from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites!

Favorite indulge: Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes. Have you ever seen a more perfect photo (or mini cheesecake?) YUM!
Favorite fashion: Daisy Top. Way out of my price range for a mere tank top, but so, so adorable.
Favorite sip: Strawberry Coconut Cream Soda. Looks superbly refreshing for a hot summer day.
Favorite travel: Shirakawa-Go. I follow a guy on Instagram whose been touring Japan for the past several weeks and I’ve been to many of the places he’s posted about. My heart just aches with each update, especially for the unmatched beauty of the Japanese countryside. It really is this stunning in real life!
Favorite shortcut: One Pan Pasta. Obsessed with this one-pot pasta dinner where you throw everything into a pot – including the pasta + sauce ingredients – then cook. Easy!
Favorite furball. Reader Julie B. sent me this photo of her English bulldog puppy, Lulu, who likes to travel with her head resting on the middle console and feet in the back seat. Dying!
Favorite treat: Microwave Rice Krispie Treats for One. STOP IT. Where has this recipe been all my life?
Favorite splurge. Ben and I are in the process of picking out new furniture for the new house (it’s…not going well) but I think we could both agree to splurging on a tufted leather couch like this one if we ever found one. AMAZING.
Favorite sweet: Reese’s Pieces Soft Peanut Butter Cookies. Mmmm, the texture of these cookies looks like straight up yummy, squishy dough.
Favorite footwear: Dottie Wedge Sandals. I love the mix of leather and shine, plus the mini wedge heel is just too fab.
Favorite fresh: Grilled Vegetable and Mozzarella Ensalada. Fresh, simple, summery.
Favorite tutorial: Baggy Dark Circle Rehab. As someone who has super dark under-eye circles in her genes, I found this tutorial to be very helpful. I haven’t bought the product in this post yet (waiting for my big weekend Target run!) but have tried the concealer trick which I think has definitely helped.
Favorite idea: Basil Prosciutto Salad on Watermelon Plates. A fresh and crispy salad served on a sweet and edible plate. Genius!
Favorite Find: His and Hers Desert Cups. I adore these chalk paint dipped dessert bowls, but can’t decide if they’re worth the price. Thoughts?
Favorite fun: Twinkie Layer Cake. Too. Much. Fun!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
