Friday Favorites!

Friday, June 20, 2014

High five for Friday, we made it! My husband and I have been working so much this week, it was starting to feel like we were in hibernation after barely leaving the house and making half-assed dinners all week. Anyone else have those weeks?! Anyway I couldn't be more happy to have the weekend here so getting down to business...

As usual I'm linking up with Amanda this fab Friday!

Summer Grilling

I have to admit my diet is mostly vegetables and sweets, but I'm trying to kick the latter to the curb since it's bathing suit season. My favorite healthy side this summer has been grilled corn on the cob!

You can keep the husk on but personally I hate messing with it after the corn is cooked and when I'm practically starving so my trick has been to husk it first, coat it with butter, add a little sea salt and some fresh parsley before wrapping it in tin foil and grilling for about 20 minutes. It comes out so good and  ready to eat! 

Ruby Update

This is an old photo, but it's one of my favorites!

I've gotten a few questions lately about how Ruby is doing after her ACL/Meniscus surgery (y'all are too sweet!). I'm so happy to report she thinks she is completely healed, she jumps on and off furniture and runs around trying to get us to play (all things she isn't supposed to be doing yet, but how do you stop a dog from being a dog?!). She does still limp a little but she's got another checkup coming up so we'll see what the vet says then!

Favorite Find: J. Crew Factory Dress

Factory Stripe Pocket Dress

So I saw this in the store a few weeks ago and was waiting for it to go on sale, I think I may have to snatch it up this weekend! It's such a cute, easy dress to throw on with sandals this summer! Love me a cute shift dress!

Fourth of July Dessert Kebab

Remember what I said about trying to cut back on sweets?! Well, this might have to be an exception. It would be such an easy and festive dessert option for Fourth of July parties! I'm pretty sure this is being added to our party menu! (You can see more festive ideas here!)

Home Office Redo: Complete!

My home office update is finally complete! It took me a while to get the gallery wall in order so I'm giving you a sneak peak! The rest of the details will be on the blog next week!

In other blog news, I almost caught up on emails late last night and my one year Blogiversary is coming up next week! I can't even believe it! Stay tuned for some fun stuff now that work is slowing down and I can actually have a life!

Cheers to the weekend! :)

  9. Corn on the grill is the best!! We cooked it with no foil and it was so good! Our pup had to have knee surgery too, so I know the struggle with that is so real. Ours would go up and down the stairs no matter how hard I tried to stop him!!

  11. I miss grilling. Now that I have a duplex I'm so tempted to find a cheap grill to put in the back. Those kabobs look so amazing. I almost made them for a bridal shower last summer but we went with...I don't remember what we went with instead actually ha.
