Friday Favorites

Friday, July 18, 2014

Hallelujah, it's Friday!

This week has been tiring between unpacking, doing approximately millions of loads of laundry,and taking care of Ruby after her surgery. I'm her least favorite person right now because as she keeps evolving and learning where we are hiding her medications, I'm forced to just stick the pill down her throat. I swear dogs are too smart for their own good sometimes!

Today I'm linking up with Amanda for my usual Friday Favorites!

One. La Croix.

Yesterday was so overcast and dreary, it was perfect for cuddling up with a book and some snacks! I've heard a ton about how much people love La Croix but I think the Lime is just so-so. What are some other good flavors I need to try?

Two. Peach Cookies.

How stinking cute are these cookies?! I feel like a total fatty constantly bringing up cookies lately but these things are SO good! They are made with a little bit of Peach Schnapps and have some sort of frosting-like filling. I've never tried to make them because they seem super complicated, but here is the most similar recipe I can find. Has anyone tried them before?!

Three. Nordstrom Pre-Fall Anniversary Sale.

Is anyone sick of hearing about this yet? Well, if you're not one of the cool kids (like me) with a Nordstrom card, you can finally shop the sale today! On my must find list: new riding boots! I'm determined to commit to a pair this year because I had to throw away my old crappy pair at the end of last winter. (P.S. That's one way to convince your husband you need a new pair... throw them out!)

I definitely suggest snagging some Zella leggings. They are my favorite and can be worn for working out or just as leggings with boots!

Four. New Recipes to try

Pizza has been my jam lately, especially the kind where you throw whatever you have on as toppings! This Roasted Cauliflower and Garlic pizza looks delish and somewhat healthy... bonus!

Also, why didn't I think of these homemade drumsticks?! You can pick your own ice cream and jimmies! I'm totally adding them to my summer bucket list!

Five. A weekend with nothing to do!

I can't wait to do absolutely nothing this weekend, who is with me?! Sometimes those are the best weekends. I really need to catch up on emails and get back into normal blogging mode because I miss it!

I hope you all have a fab weekend! It's the last one in July! Eek!

  2. I love La Croix but lime is not my fav. Try coconut or passion fruit (only at target!) those are my favorite flavors!!

  3. I drink all flavors of La Croix pretty much but lime is actually one of my favorites! Try putting a little splash of cranberry in the lime la croix and it's so refreshing !

  6. Love the grapefruit La Croix the best (it's like a peach colored can). You can always mix the lime with some sweet red wine for easy sangria ;) Have a great weekend and see you next week, pretty!

  9. Those cookies look amazing! I'm not a cool kid either, so I've been on there all morning, I've got it narrowed down to a few things now :) YAY for a free weekend, we have one next week and the level of excitement I'm feeling is ridiculous haha.

  11. That pizza looks yummy! I'm on the hunt for some riding boots too - let me know if you find any! And I totally feel you on having a weekend with no plans - I'm basking in the same glorious plans (aka no plans) this weekend as well.
