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!

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

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- Real jeans? What are those?

I don’t ever wear real, denim jeans anymore. I hope I’m not alone in this. All my “jeans” are really more jeggings- way stretchier and comfier than the original. I’ve tried on real jeans a couple of times recently, and I just can’t convince myself that I’d wear them. Comfort is king.

But boyfriend jeans?? Maybe, just maybe, I could get behind those. These jeans from Madewell are super cute and actually look comfortable. Time will tell if I actually end up wearing real jeans again at some point 😉

 

And now for the rest of Fashion Friday, which happens to have nothing to do with jeans. Real or otherwise.

Journey to Bali Top

I love the color and fabric of this top- it dresses up the otherwise casual tank top.

These are simple and pretty, but a little unusual with the wood.

Saltwater Sweets Top

Have you seen all the gorgeous Rifle Paper Co. products floating around lately? If you haven’t, look them up- such beautiful stuff. Anyways, this pattern reminds me of something they’d make.

 

That’s it for today! Have an amazing weekend!

Fashion Friday- Oh! Hey you.

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!

Fashion Friday- In Case You Want a Gift for Yourself

Considering that most of us are in the throes of Christmas shopping right now, the chances that you’re going to want to buy clothes right now seems slim, but in case you’re looking for a last minute gift, here’s your chance to find it! Or, better yet, buy something for yourself, and label it from “Santa”- you’ll fool everyone 😉

All-Time Hike Bootie

2a911793ca536e77fe02bb1417c4b174

 

I really like the interesting zipper detail on these.

Magic Hour Printed Blouse

38321

 

This would be perfect during all seasons- great worn on it’s own, and even better under a jacket or blazer.

 

Need I Say Moor? Jacket

db2d5306036f537b871a842058d034fa

 

I’m a sucker for a cute military style jacket.

 

Nestled in for the Night Cowl Scarf

137b759b1cc083b95b84994b22b1a0c1

 

For the most part, I can’t figure out how to wear regular scarves, so cowl scarves (or “scarves for dummies”) are my favorite.

 

Peppermint Mocha Crochet Blouse

38376

 

This is so pretty- I can’t get over how gorgeous the color is.

 

Lace Overlay Maxi Dress

00099006-01

 

Completely inappropriate for winter garb, but oh so pretty.

 

Greet Your Day Socks

db7e35548ae19bcea6b0d31f355373a4

 

My favorite alternative to tights.

 

Edith Embellished Sweater

37436

 

Something about this sweater makes me absolutely love it.
