Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites

This week was a challenging and draining one. I started off sick, and the rest of the week in school and everything else was a whirlwind! I am so, so thankful it’s Friday! Amen? Amen!

One.Other than my homemade granola, I have been loving this granola. Since we are Amazon prime members, this actually ends up being cheaper than in most stores and it’s delivered right to our door. 🙂 You can buy it here

Two.

Before I started feeling under the weather, I went to shower one of my sweet friends at her baby shower! I’m still dreaming about this cake. How cute is it?! And can you tell she’s having a girl? 😉

Three.
Last night on a whim, we went out to dinner with friends and I downed some fish tacos that are my faaaaav! They made me think of this recipe and how I need to make it again soon! 🙂

Four.

       

I’m going shopping this weekend and have my eye on a few things. Maybe I’ll snatch something like this up to keep in my closet for next year also!

Five.

I get to sleep in tomorrow! 🙂 A favorite for sure! Happy Friday!

P.S.- Since fresh veggies are right around the corner, I will be using this a lot more. I love it!

 This week was so strange, but in such a good way. 😉 We had meetings on Monday, school was closed Tuesday and Wednesday because of snow, and I was at a conference Thursday. Therefore, today is the first day I’ll see my students and then it’s the weekend!

One.I ordered this sweater and love it! It’s so cozy and fits perfect!

Two.You know how we were on the search for an accent chair? We found one this one via the Magnolia Line!

Three.1. Farmers Market Sign 2. Plant 3. Spring Tea Towel 4. Dried Lavender 5. Antique Galvanized Double Bucket 6. White Pitcher 7. Preserved Eucalyptus Branches

Spring decor ladies and gents. Make it happen. 😉 Shop your heart out with all of these cute finds!

My Green Smoothie for St. Patrick’s Day!

Five.

I bought these bottles the other day to make some room spray…and now I can’t stop spraying it!  I used 15 drops of purification essential oil and filled the rest with water. So simple and fresh!

Happy St. Patricks Day and weekend! Stay warm! 🙂

It’s Friday, it’s snowing, and I’m off school. It’s going to be a good day. 🙂

I missed Friday Favorites last week because my best friend and I went on a shopping trip, got home late, and the post just didn’t happen! But we’re back and running today!

One.

After going to IKEA for the first time ever (I KNOW!) we shopped around at a nearby mall. I basically wanted to buy every candle at Anthropologie. This one is such a great smell but I think this one was my favorite!


Two.I have been wanting to try Matcha Tea for awhile now. People seem to love this brand but I’m not sure if I should take the plunge? Has anyone tried this brand or are there other brands that you recommend?
Three.I’ve talked about my love for the Today show a few times. 😉 Well, they just came out with an app and I’m SO excited it’s silly. One of the best part’s of my day off last week before the shopping trip? Waking up just to watch the Today show and sip coffee. 🙂
Four.

Check out my updated shop page, here with some of my favorites and things I’ve had my eye on!

Five.I have been on a Ginger Mule kick all over again. You can find the recipe, here and cheers to Friday! 😉

The weather was absolutely gorgeous this week, which automatically puts me in such a good mood. 🙂 It has been in the 70’s and I love it! Is it just in PA or are other places experiencing it being warmer too?! Clearly, I haven’t watched the news lately. 😉

One.

Since it has been so nice out, I’ve been breaking out my two denim shirts to layer. They are an ideal in between for these temperatures. I have one from Garage (similar, here) and one from Target, (similar, here).

I found some other fun ones that I may need to add to my wardrobe since I am going to puuuuuurge my closet like it’s my job very soon!

Two.

Here’s the deal. Over the summer we were doing the Whole 30. I was planning on making a taco salad when I realized I couldn’t break tortilla chips on top since they aren’t Whole 30 compliant. The recipe I was following suggested these plantain chips from Trader Joes. I loved them in the salad and then found myself snacking on them by themselves throughout the week. I love them! I just ordered some more this morning for snacking and for a salad next week. Plus, they really are a lot healthier than tortilla chips so it’s a win all around. 😉

Three.My Sweet and Savory 30 Minute Chili because Thursday was National Chili Day. Who knew? 🙂 You could crumble the plantain chips on top of this too!

Four.

I got a massage on Tuesday and that is beyond a favorite of mine!

Five.

I loved all the comments about Friday Night Lights from my post on Wednesday! Low and behold, my sister-in-law informed me that she loves the show AND has a Tim Riggins shirt! WHAT?! I didn’t even know they made them and now I want one. 🙂 You can buy it, here! It even has his name on the back. 😉

Have the best Friday and an even better weekend!

It’s one of those weeks where counting your blessings comes extra easy. They are flowing all around and I’m so grateful.

One.

Eric and I agreed not to do much for Valentine’s Day. But, when I got home on Tuesday I found a bottle of wine, flowers, and a note. One of the notes said to check the freezer which had Talenti was in it.  #win We did nothing fancy and I loved that. As I poured myself a glass of wine, I realize that I always reach for these. They have held up so well, are dishwasher safe, and I love using them.

Two.Remember in November I talked about how much I love this bag from Urban Southern? Well, these beautiful ladies were styled three collections at NYCFW with their bags and launched their new Spring line! It is absolutely beautiful!

Three.

I updated my shop page with some of my favorite glassware for drinks. You can check it out here!

Four.I’m making some of this for the weekend and I think you should too!

Five.Because my Raspberry Brownie Triffles aren’t just for Valentine’s Day. 🙂

Six.

In December when I talked about my Home Tips and Tricks, several of you purchased this ottoman. I don’t blame you, it’s the best! (Sidenote: It’s on sale right now!) I think in most homes, we’re all craving a little more storage that looks nice and can hide the things we need to store. Which brings me to these baskets. I wasn’t crazy about them at first because I don’t like the feeling of them. Weird, I know.

The other week I did some organizing and used these baskets to store our movies in our entertainment center. I looked at them the other day and now I can’t imagine not having them there. They hide the clutter and are sweet, yet simple. Plus, they are inexpensive. If you like the smaller version, you can also buy these khaki or cute floral liners to go along with them!

It’s a win all around, and it’s a Friday, so treat yourself. 😉 Happy Friday!
