Friday Favorites...1st of 2017

It's been a rainy week but we've managed to stay afloat and weather the storm. My workouts have taken a back seat this week due to consuming too much coffee on these rainy days but secretly I don't really mind. It's been kind of nice to be "rained in" while getting back to business with my weekly blog posts in my pj's.  With that being said,  awards season is in full swing and there's nothing better than enjoying a glass (or two) of bubbles, wearing comfy champagne pajamas as you watch all the glamour and glitz on the red carpet.  Check out my link above and hope you enjoy my recent favorites. Cheers to the weekend y'all!

Try It Tuesday...Cauliflower Breadsticks

unexpectedly delicious "breadstick"
With a new year comes new resolutions and right now we're all about low carbs around here. Our goal is to incorporate more cauliflower into our meals and this past weekend I came across a recipe for cauliflower "breadsticks" that made my mouth water. I could have made them a little more cheesier and prettier with fresh basil but that would have involved another trip to the store. Next time I'll be sure to follow the recipe 100%. Definitely should have baked them on my air bake for a little crispier bottom.  Check out the recipe here and a few more of my pics below.

Friday Favorites...Last of 2016

The holiday season is always such a wonderful time of year but I'm more excited than ever to get "home"  to our family and friends. We incorporated some new Christmas traditions last year that we plan on continuing and maybe we'll add some new ones to mix it up...either way it's always a blast. Hope your holiday season is filled with love and be sure to make the most of these last days of 2016.

Friday Favorites...Dec. 2

 acorns on my morning walk
Happy December! Well there's 22 shopping days left until Christmas and I feel that I've made a pretty good dent into our list so far. My main focus is to get our holiday card out, which we haven't sent in two years. I've been working on it and hope to wrap it up this weekend. Speaking of the freakin' weekend,  torrential downpours are in the forecast so I need to run my Saturday errands today so I don't melt! I'm actually looking forward to spending the weekend baking and being hunkered down in the house. Hope your weekend is full of holiday cheer...

Friday Favorites...

I still can't believe that Thanksgiving is next week...where in the heck did November go? Our turkey day menu is 80% planned (it doesn't include turkey) and my goal is to finish up the shopping this weekend so I don't have to set foot into a grocery store next week and fight the crowds. I will admit that I do enjoy the crowded vibe at Whole Foods the night before Thanksgiving. Weird I know but hopefully we can stop in and have a cocktail to take it all in and enjoy the holiday spirit. With only two days of school next week I already feel like our much needed break from the daily grind is here. Have the best weekend ever everyone!

Friday Favorites...Scenes from the Nutcracker Market

should have bought this
You know that feeling when you look through your camera roll after a day of shopping and come across something that you totally should have purchased...but didn't? Or am I the only one who does this?  It's that time of year again where we take the annual girls shopping trip to the Nutcracker Market and wrap it up with tequila and tacos. Yesterday we hit it hard and had a fun time shopping while getting in the Christmas spirit. I always look forward to going and I'm thinking I might have to start this tradition with my daughter who has asked to go ever since we moved here 6 years ago.  Plus, how else am I going to get my piece of crystal home? 

Happy Friday y'all!

Friday Favorites...Hello November!

family Halloween pic
Well hello there November! Now if we could just get some Novemberish fall temps I would be a happy camper.  Wow...what a fun week this has been. We visited with the neighbors and handed out candy on Halloween, did a little shopping, pampered myself with a mani/pedi and spent last night at a charity dinner with friends. We kind of forgot that it was a Thursday night we were having so much fun but now I'm ready to lay low for the next couple of days. I kinda dropped the ball with pictures but did manage to participate in the yearly #OneDayHH on Instagram

Can't wait till Monday rolls around! eeks...seize the weekend y'all
