Friday Favorites Round Up

Happy Friday friends!! Did this week fly by for everyone? It was a whirlwind and I had every intention of sharing our holiday cards yesterday, but alas meetings and long days didn't allow for it!! I'm excited for this weekend - holiday parties, recitals and hopefully a little more shopping!! Here's a few things I loved this week!  
via

Favorite Recipe 

I must be on a seafood kick (which is always) because after sharing this recipe earlier this week, I stumbled upon this Brown Butter Scallops with Parmesan Risotto from Pinch of Yum and knew it would be incredible! 

Favorite DIY

I sometimes get a little scared to try some of the DIYs that I've pinned, but when something is as easy and cute as this one - I sort of have to give it a try! Would be a great gift for a co-worker or friend hosting a party! 

Favorite New Colors

Pantone announced the TWO colors for 2016 and it's like a beautiful cotton candy sunset!! I personally can't get enough of Rose Quartz and can't wait to wear more pink! 

Favorite Baking Idea

Back in April I made a 30 before 30 list and I'm so excited to be knocking one of those off the list next weekend - I signed up for a macaroon making class and what's more I can't wait to have an excuse to get a kitchen aid mixer...this pink one is really high on the list :)

  28. Those scallops look amazing! I haven't had seafood in so long & now I just learned that my boyfriend doesn't like seafood. Looks like I'll be making them for me & only me. Lol which could be a good thing because then I don't have to share.

  44. I love that Pantone chose two colors for 2016. They're both beautiful on their own, but combined they're just so soft and gorgeous and LOVE. I especially am grateful that I've been on a Rose Quartz binge and now there will be so many options of everything in that color. Bring it on!

  53. How cute is that Friday art piece. And a few years back I made a similar Christmas ornament, currently hanging on our tree. Now I want to make one with Vivian's name. I love scallops so count me in for that recipe. ;-)

    Have a fabulous weekend, friend! <3 Ada.

  70. I am also excited about the new pantone colors. Kind of interesting that they are very pastel-like around winter time. I'm curious to see how they work them in to the winter lines.
