Friday Favorites!!

It's Friday!! And...yesterday it was like 68º outside and perfect. It was a little rainy at first but cleared up later in the day. Mike and I even got to sit on the porch and have a beer!! #porchdick #walkingdead

The day was awesome. It's only supposed to get up to like 50º today though. I can't wait until the warm days actually happen in a row and not so sporadically. Although, I guess I can't complain. At least it wasn't snowing.

Here are my Friday Faves!! I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!

favorite cocktail.



Pam at Grey is the New Black posted this for Thursty Thursday yesterday. Looks amazing!! And...it's only 2 ingredients!! Can't beat that!! I'm always looking for good drinks that aren't going to cost me my paycheck in order to make for a bunch of people. This is perfect!!

favorite recipe.



These Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls from Green Fashionista were posted on Tuesday's Recipe Swap this week. I think they look so good and super simple. I can't wait to try them out and see if they compare to the Buffalo Wild Wings version!!

favorite future diy project.



I just came across this on Pinterest, but it's an older post from Love Grows Wild. I have to admit that I'm a little nervous about this one. She says that it's fairly easy and it doesn't have to be perfect, but I'm a slight perfectionist. Hopefully I'll get to it this weekend and have a post ready for you in the near future!!

favorite book.


I just finished Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult and it was amazing. As usual the ending is completely not what you expected. Here is the synopsis from Amazon in case you're interested. If you have never read Jodi Picoult before, you need to. She is amazing.

For more than a decade, Jenna Metcalf has never stopped thinking about her mother, Alice, who mysteriously disappeared in the wake of a tragic accident. Refusing to believe she was abandoned, Jenna searches for her mother regularly online and pores over the pages of Alice’s old journals. A scientist who studied grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother’s whereabouts.
 
Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest: Serenity Jones, a psychic who rose to fame finding missing persons, only to later doubt her gifts, and Virgil Stanhope, the jaded private detective who’d originally investigated Alice’s case along with the strange, possibly linked death of one of her colleagues. As the three work together to uncover what happened to Alice, they realize that in asking hard questions, they’ll have to face even harder answers.
 
As Jenna’s memories dovetail with the events in her mother’s journals, the story races to a mesmerizing finish. A deeply moving, gripping, and intelligent page-turner, Leaving Time is Jodi Picoult at the height of her powers.
favorite purchase.



This "hello" decor was on sale for $8 on Eleventh Avenue (the new Groopdealz) today. I couldn't pass it up. I love having little sayings like this around my house. And, they are perfect for gallery walls!! I have no idea where I'm putting it yet, but....at least I own it now. haha. Plus, they come unfinished so i can add some color to spruce up a wall!!

  7. I've never read a Jodi Picoult book, and I read a lot. I'm going to remedy that this year.
