Friday Favorites + Homemade Croutons

We made it to Friday only because I’ve been drinking A LOT of this lately. 😉


Banana Republic earrings are a favorite and something I went shopping for this week.

Two.On Monday it was extremely cold all day so we had my Easy Tomato Soup for dinner. Except this time, I made some homemade croutons to pair with it. I debated about sharing this because it’s nothing fancy or mind-blowing. But I will tell you, it added just the perfect amount of crunch and topping to an already tasty soup.Homemade Croutons--Recipe at: Homemade Croutons--Recipe at:

Homemade Croutons


  • One baguette
  • EVOO (enough to coat the bottom of a pan)

What to do: 

In a large pan, lightly coat the bottom with EVOO on medium to medium-low heat. Cut the baguette into one inch pieces. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. Remove from heat and place desired amount on top of soup! 🙂

Three.On Wednesday, I mentioned how one of my New Years Goals is for some, “me” time and I want books as a part of that time. I need some recommendations though! I’ve talked about some of my favorite books here and here. I also mentioned a modge-podge here. Leave a comment and fill me in on your favorites! 🙂


Did someone say three day weekend? Thank you, Martin Luther King Jr. 🙂
