Friday Favorites- Lots and Lots of Food

That seems to be a general trend around here, doesn’t it? Between my mom and I, we subscribe to a lot of different blogs- food, fashion and everything in between. It’s awesome to see what other blogger’s are up to- it’s so inspiring!

A handful of blog posts that popped up in my inbox this week were so great that I just had to share them with you all. And it just so happens that many of them are food related. So get ready to drool- hope you enjoy!

Gimme Some Oven: Banana Bread Smoothie

Doesn’t this look and sound absolutely incredible?

A Beautiful Mess: Easy (and Healthy!) Three Ingredient Ice Cream

6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c78ed519970b-800wi

You might remember a similar post on our blog- Banana Ice Cream. It’s a total hit during the summer- easy, healthy and delicious! That great thing about this post from A Beautiful Mess is that they include a ton of great ways to mix up the basic recipe.

Skunkboy Blog: 5 DIY’s I’m Dying to Try

DIY via Twine and Table

I’m not a crafty person- it’s just not one of my strengths. I loved this DIY post from Skunkboy blog though- so many cute ideas! I especially love the homemade fire starters (shown above). Also, the colorful backgammon game is amazing!

The Pioneer Woman: Crunchy French Toast

Oh my goodness. This Crunchy French Toast looks like heaven- french toast battered in sweetened panko and then cooked in butter…yummmmmm.

Proverbs 31 Ministries: Why Did This Happen God?

unnamedLysa Terkeurst’s devotions are awesome- I’d highly recommend checking them out. I especially loved what she had to say about Philippians 4:12-13- a verse that can sometimes be tough to swallow, and is always tough to live out. Worth the read.

That’s it for today- have an amazing weekend!

Fashion Friday- Themes

As I was looking through my fashion board on Pinterest, I noticed some definite themes, and I thought it would be fun to share a couple of the styles I’ve been loving lately.

Pleated Skirts

My Daughter and I- Fashion Friday- Inspiration- Pleated Skirts

 

I bought a green pleated midi skirt at a resale store for last year’s Halloween costume. It turned out that I love wearing the skirt normally, so that purchase was a total win-win. I’m loving how these gals styled their pleated skirts- they look cute and a bit fancy.

Blue & White

My Daughter and I- Fashion Friday- Inspiration- blue & white

Blue and white is just a timeless combination.

Crochet & Lace

My Daughter and I- Fashion Friday- Inspiration- Crochet and Lace

 

Crochet and lace are always a favorite, but they seem especially springy and fun right now.

Black & White

My Daughter and I- Fashion Friday- Inspiration- Black & White

 

Another timeless combination. Maybe it’s just me, but wearing just black and white seems to make any outfit elegant.

Polka Dots & Stripes

My Daughter and I- Fashion Friday- Inspiration- polka dots & stripes

 

Polka dots and stripes forever. Seriously, what’s better than a great striped shirt or a cute polka dotted skirt? Nothing, in my opinion 🙂

 

That’s it! Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Friday Favorites- Inspiration

In case you’re in need of a little bit of inspiration, here are a few things I found fun or inspiring this week.

Favorite Yum: Gimme Some Oven- Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Chocolate-Peanut-Butter-Energy-Bites-1

 

We made something similar a while back (see here), but it didn’t include chocolate, which I think is a great addition.

Favorite DIY- Dip Dye

These are so cute! Wouldn’t they be an amazing gift?

Favorite Inspiration: Skunkboy Blog- Disposable Camera Challenge

I love this whole concept.

Favorite Funny- Taxes

Favorite Hair: Delightfully Tacky- Low Tuck Up-Do

IMG_5603

This hairstyle idea is totally do-able. Elizabeth (above) just uses a plain black headband, which is totally an option, but when I tried it, I used a sparkly one- it ends up making it look a bit fancier. Despite how it looks completed, the up-do is incredibly simple and easy- and it looks great on thick, curly hair (like mine), and thinner, straight hair (like a friend’s who introduced me to the hairstyle).  My new go to hair for when I want to feel fancy 🙂

Favorite Outfit Inspiration- Neutrals

This makes me want a full skirt all over again…

Favorite Wanderlust- via

Always inspiring.

Favorite Words- Prayer

I absolutely love this perspective on prayer.

Friday Favorites- Accomplished!

Whew! Well here we are! I finally managed to post three times this week- yay for consistent blogging! The last couple months have been pretty spotty with the blog- I kept on thinking that things were going to settle down and I would go back to the blog then. And you know what I’ve figured out? Things don’t really settle down- schedules change and routines resume, but no matter what, we’re still busy. Despite that, being back on schedule with the blog feels great. Let’s see if we can keep it up 🙂

Spring Break Camera Strap

Favorite Read- Jesus Creed: Loving God and Loving Others by Scot McKnight

I found this book via a recommendation, and have loved it so far! I actually didn’t have super high hopes for it at first, but it’s blown me away. The author is direct, concise, interesting, and thought-provoking. What more could you ask for?

Favorite Comfy Tee- Stay Cozy
