Friday Favorites Round Up


Happy Friday all!! This week was just the best!! Having a birthday smack dab in the middle of the work week is amazing and I will always be taking my birthday off going forward...I mean it is my own personal holiday!!! With that being said, linking up with Amanda and Liz to share some favorites from the week

Favorite Recipe

There is nothing I love more than an easy weeknight meal and this recipe has all the makings for it...the recipe calls for 1-2 hours of the shrimp being coated in the marinade, but I think it would be just as good without the wait! 


Favorite Night

It probably comes as no surprise that Tuesday happened to not only be my favorite day this week, but also my favorite night! We celebrated my birthday with dinner at Grill 23 and it was delicious...the prime beef bolognese with polenta was out of this world good! 

Favorite Finds

I recently discovered Ashley Brooke Designs Shop and all her mugs...you may have seen them floating around instagram and I really want to get one because we all need a little affirmation in the morning! Treat Yo' Self and Everyday I'm Hustlin are at the top of my list! 

I bought these sunglasses from Nordstrom yesterday and they are only $12!!! I couldn't even believe it...plus free shipping so it was a total win! 

Favorite New Site

I started using Wunderlist this week for a couple of reasons! 1. I love making lists and I love seeing my lists...not just of things to do, but what to pack and what items I'm currently loving. 2. I love being able to share lists with people, especially our packing list with Gary! My friend Stephanie introduced me to this site and I love that I can add to it online or on my phone so regardless of when I think of something I can add it. Also, you can print your lists out and cross things out if you are a pen and paper person...which I am and will continue to do! SO in summation (feeling very legally blonde here) will I keep my daily lists on here, probably not, but everything else is going here!
