Happy Friday, everyone!
Can you believe it’s March already?! It is absolutely wild to me that this Iowa winter is nearly over before it really even began. I can’t remember another year when it was warm enough to have a bonfire on Thanksgiving, go coatless until December, or run outside in January. Even if we get hit with an epic snow storm at this point, it’ll melt within a few days.
I am not mad at that. ;)
In other news, Ben and I actually have, gasp, plans this weekend starting with a house party (yeah!) and hockey game tonight with friends. Can’t wait!
In the meantime, please enjoy my favorite finds from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites!
Favorite fit: Mad Abs March. Who’s in?!
Favorite bite: Strawberry Lemonade Scones. Just the sight of these makes me excited for spring and summer. :)
Favorite sip: Pineapple Ginger Smoothie. This looks SO refreshing, I can’t wait to try it out.
Favorite bling: Wishbone Necklace. I am obsessed with all things “luck” – horseshoes, wishbones, 4 leaf clovers. This is SO FREAKING ADORABLE!
Favorite furball. A reader sent this picture to me on Facebook. What a sweetie!!
Favorite slurp: Roasted Cauliflower and Aged White Cheddar Soup. Easy, yet impressive.
Favorite accent: Reclaimed Wood Wall. What a unique, stylish and eco-friendly home accent! I love the rustic-chic look.
Favorite cocktail: Kiwi Mojito. Ben and I are obsessing over kiwis right now – they’re in season and you can get like 100 for $1 around here. I. Want. This. Drink.
Favorite transformation: Pizza Monkey Bread. My Mom used to make regular monkey bread on Sundays after church. This savory version sounds awesome!
Favorite home accent: Globe Firepit. How cool, right?
Favorite indulgence: Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. This recipe looks like one of the best copycat Reese’s Cups I’ve ever seen. Look at that peanut butter texture, mmmm.
Favorite DIY: Vintage Frames. Take a few inexpensive Walmart frames, a little elbow grease, some paint, and voila!
Favorite drool-worthy photo: Ahi Tuna Tartare with Avocado, Crispy Shallots & Soy Sauce. O.M.G!!!!!!
Favorite funny. RIGHT?! I heard Angie’s Oscars leg stunt was done on a dare, which is hopefully true, otherwise that woman is crazier than I thought!
Favorite view: Ariel view of Angel Falls (click on the picture on the website). This is THE sweetest view of the world’s highest waterfall, Angel Falls, in Venezuela. Check this out!
Favorite nook. I would love to have this desk/reading nook at home. That blue color is so soothing.
Favorite outfit. I am in LOVE with this dress – and those earrings!
Favorite indulgence: Mississippi Mud Cake. BLERG. Check out how she cuts this cake too – it’s ingenious!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! :D

Oh, I am SO making that soup this weekend! It looks divine! LOVE your Friday Favorite soups! :)
I absolutely LOVE your Friday Favorites posts – such a good idea! You were the very first blog I ever followed starting in 2010 and I definitely just voted for you for the Fitterati Blogger Awards – good luck!
I just have to say… the globe fire pit… immediately put “We Didn’t Start the Fire” in my head :)
I have a question about the Mad Abs…how many times are you supposed to do this? Just once? Twice? Three times? Five?
If you like cocktails with kiwifruit (as we call ’em here in New Zealand) then you’ve gotta try this one, it’s full of delicious! http://www.42below.com/asu/index.php/cocktails/info/page:6 (If the link doesn’t work then search for the 42 below kiwi berry caipiroska!
I have been reading healthy living/healthy eating blogs for the past three years and I am so sad that I had never discovered yours until today!!! However, I am kind of happy because I spent a happy, lazy Sunday reading a million of your old posts! I discovered you through the Fitterati awards, and I’m thrilled that I did. I’m officially obsessed. :)
We tried the cauliflower soup tonight and it was delicious.
I voted. And I am in for the March ab challenge. I hope I can finish this one life got so crazy that I only finished half of February.
Thanks so much for the mention on my frames Kristin! i haven’t seen you since the Breakstone’s sour cream competition. I need to stop by a lot more often! ;-)

Those scones are totally inspiring me to try making scones for the first time! I bet they would be heavenly bites of spring…
The pineapple ginger smoothie sounds delicious! Never thought about putting ginger in a smoothie before. Have to give it a try!
