Friday Faves

2 mins read

Hello and happy Friday!


We’re in the home stretch of summer now and I am feeling it slip through my greasy little fingers and I’m not one bit happy about it either. Things around our house are changing fast and furiously because our daughter is taking a gap year before college and leaves tonight for a 3-month tour of Europe. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?? My one-and-only is up and out of the nest. Ah, but she will be back! And then leaving again. But, I’m so happy and proud of her. What an experience! I love my Smudge so much. I’m a puddle of tears today.

On that note, if you don’t want jet lag, I use these and they seriously work.

My garden cucumbers are proliferating and that means tangy crunchy dilly cucumbers are always in the fridge. I added fresh dill and tarragon from the garden this go round. Experimenting with classics is always fun!

Made me laugh.

If you’re in need of a summer groove, check out this fantastic playlist.

Another commentary on how I’m feeling about the app: Is Instagram even Instagram anymore?

This Thai pineapple curry looks so authentic, so good.


Thai iced tea. Yum yum gimme some.

Summer-Simon says: Make this peach gazpacho—YUM!

Everyone loves my no-churn ice cream recipe, but this berry flavor looks extra special too.

This salad looks great for meal prepping easy lunches for the week.

Drooling over these chicken sandwiches.

Get yourself to the grill because this is the pizza I’ve been craving all week long.

Chicken ragu. Start twirling!

These ground beef quesadillas sound even heartier than tacos.

These muffins look divine.

Excuse me while I dip into this PICKLE dip!

10 foods to avoid before bed for a more restful night’s sleep.

How fun are these glass straws?

Also loving these cutting boards.

A fun concept for a cookbook.

37 books to tote to the beach.

I wore this dress yesterday and got three compliments throughout the day! It’s so light, so easy, and is super flowy when walking. Tip: It runs large so order one size down than usual.

This is the perfect top to make you feel just a little bit sexy but comfortable at the same time.

If you want to run faster, try this workout.

And finally, with all this travel talk I want to get going, esp after checking out T&L’s World’s Best Travel awards.

And that’s it for this week! Have a good one and get out and do something fun!
