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!

I made those Reeses Peanut Butter cookies and they were oh-so-A-mazing! So chewy and moist and bursting with PB and chocolate flavor!! Yum!
Best of luck moving! I love that strawberry drink the one pot pasta meal!

Hope the move went well! My mom made this one pot pasta dish last night and loved it, I definitely need to make it soon too. And as for that watermelon salad idea – adore!!!
Cute pictures….love the tank top!
Just happened to stumble across your blog…can’t wait to hear more after the big move!

Moving days are so exciting! I love putting everything in it’s place :) That watermelon plate would be so great for a summer party! And the rice krispies treat for one is right up my alley!
I think moving is so exciting. You get to redecorate, and reorganize. Such a fresh start.
Good luck with your move! Hoping that everything goes smoothly and that you have some time to get (at least a little) organized before your little one arrives! Just returned from Telluride, CO – if you have not been there yet, I suggest adding it to your list…one of the most beautiful places I’ve been!

Congrats on the new house! I’ve been eyeing up those Reese’s Pieces cookies too, they look soooo good!
Happy moving day! Good luck :)
You could totally DIY those dessert cups! Something I learned from Pinterest about sharpies in the oven
Ugh, the curse of the eye bags! Mine are sooo bad. Off to read the advice! :) Good luck with the move this weekend!

What a great idea for the one pot pasta. I would not have thought of that.
Good luck with the move!
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope 06.22.2013
I love these posts! That salad look amazing and I love the living room set – so classy!
Good luck with your move! I’m moving next weekend and dreading it, but it’s always worth it in the end :)
Jan @ Sprouts n Squats 06.22.2013
Loving those chalk dipped bowls too!
Goodluck with the move :) I hope all goes well.
Yay keys! Can’t wait to see pics!!! That one pot meal is so clever! I have really curbed refined ingredients but when I do “cheat” that is worthy. :-). Fast and easy!
