Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy weekend! What are you up to?? We’re hanging out today -Liv has a little show at her camp that I can’t wait to go see- and we’re doing family dinner with Betsy and the kids. It should be a low-key weekend and I’m excited to spend time with the fam, catch up on some work, and continue house hunting and figuring our stuff for the upcoming move. It’s nice that we have quite a bit of time, but going in to the fall season, everything is going to happen quickly, especially with the avalanche of holidays. It goes: school starts, Tom’s bday, P’s bday (2 days later!), Halloween, my birthday, Thanksgiving, MOVE, Christmas Liv’s birthday. Lots of fun things to look forward to. 🙂

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party. It’s always fun to share some of the things I’m enjoying + good reads/finds from the week. I always love when you join in the fun in the comments section if you’d like to share something you’re enjoying.

(We had an awesome date night at Catania, which is on the list of our favorite SD restaurants. It was incredible; even better than we were anticipating.)

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know my favorite thing from the week: Kyle and Meg are having a baby!

Baby on the way

That’s one of the best parts about our upcoming 3-month stay in Tucson: we’ll get to be there when the baby is born!! AHHHHH. They are already such incredible parents, and that little baby is going to be surrounded by so much love. Needless to say, I’m over the moon. When Kyle called to FaceTime and tell me the news a while ago, I cried the happiest tears. I had been wishing for some good news, and that was certainly it. We’re going to have a niece or nephew, and the girls will have a baby cousin! I’m so excited for them, and so glad I could tell you guys about it now that the news is out and about.

Spring roll chicken salad

This salad may be one of the very best salads I’ve ever posted on the blog! The other ones that come to mind are this one, this one, and of course, the best pasta salad ever. This one combines savory peanut butter chicken with a sweet chile vinaigrette, fresh chopped veggies, and creamy avocado.) I’ll […]

when things come full circle

You guys are going to laugh (especially if you’re an OG blog reader), but this time next year, we’ll be living in Valdosta, GA. If you’re unfamiliar with Valdosta, which I used to affectionately call “Valdizzy” on the blog, it’s a quaint southern Georgia town 22 miles from the Florida border. We lived in Valdosta […]

Anniversary sale favorites

 One of my favorite times to stock up on staples and gifts is here: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  I always look forward to this sale, because they offer new pieces for the upcoming season at a discounted price. It’s a short amount of time to enjoy amazing deals before the items are switched back to […]

 Hi friends! Happy Monday! How was the weekend? Hope you had a great one. <3 We spent some time with friends, relaxed at the house, and I caught an OTF class in addition to teaching Zumba. It was pretty low key around here; just the way I like it. Oh, and I also slept for […]

Random random survey

Exciting cable machine exercises

Hi friends! How’s the day going? So happy you liked the chicken salad recipe! I love simple lunches, especially when I can make a large batch and enjoy leftovers all week. This morning I have a conference call and a couple of work things on the to-do list, and then Kyle and Meg will be […]

hummus chicken salad bowl

It’s funny how things change over time.  I used to despise sweet and savory mixed together. (Now if it’s food, chances are that I’ll eat it.) I used to nap every day. (My eyes still get a little misty at the loss of this ritual.) I used to hate mayo… And then I got pregnant. […]
