Friday Favorites

Hi and happy Friday! Or should I say Fri-yay? I am late getting this post up today because I’ve been catching up around the house. Or at least trying to ๐Ÿ˜‰ย You know the little odds and ends… errands, shipping Etsy orders, laundry, cooking, cleaning, and playing with Sadie girl!

I couldn’t miss a Friday Favorites post, though, so here I am. Even if I still have a bunch of stuff to do today. Blogging is much more appealing ๐Ÿ˜ฌย Today I’m sharing my favorite things from the past week. Feel free to join in and share what’s making life good for you lately!

Family. Sadie and I spent the day at my mom and dad’s house yesterday (and got to see one of “their” deer!) and had such a fun time hanging out. Belly laughs, good food, and relaxation were had by all ๐Ÿ˜Šย We also stopped by my sister’s house to pick some vegetables from her garden. They were away on vacation for most of the week, so they gave us free reign of their cucumbers, sweet banana peppers, lettuce, and snap peas. Family is the best.

Sourdough bread. I know, I need to stop being a weirdo and mentioning bread like every Friday (rye/pumpernickel in this post and artesano in this post) but I just love bread! It has been quite some time since I last baked homemade sourdough. While nothing beats homemade sourdough fresh from the oven, the Pepperidge Farm brand is pretty tasty! Maybe I should just start a bread review blog? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Book light. Reading is always a favorite of mine. I’m planning a post soon on all the books we’ve been loving lately (sorta like this post from about a year ago), but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the book light that is making bedtime reading awesome lately! One of the best parts of my day is after we’ve tucked Sadie in and the house is “shut down” for the night. I brush my teeth and crawl into bed with a book. Sometimes Jimmy is already in bed, so I use this book light and it’s just perfect. It clips onto my book and the amber lighting doesn’t bother him.

Chicken and broccoli alfredo fans. My friend from church, Lindsey, texted me today to tell me that her family is a big fan of my chicken and broccoli alfredo recipe and it made my day! If you’re interested in trying it out, the recipe is here! If you don’t count olive oil and pepper, it only has five ingredients ๐Ÿฅฐ

Things Jimmy and Sadie say. We were at church the other day and Sadie saw tiger lilies and said “Oh look! Lion daisies!” and it was the cutest. When Jimmy and I were at Cracker Barrel last week, we were browsing around the store area and I was showing him clothes and said how a gingham dress would be cute for Sadie and he was like “Gingham? What is that?” and I explained it’s a pattern and he was like “No, that’s called table cloth” ๐Ÿ˜‚

Your turn! Tell me some of your favorites from this week!

Are you doing anything fun this weekend?



  1. Aww I’m glad you had a lovely week with family time and some tasty fresh veggies from your sister’s garden ๐Ÿ™‚

    Laughing out loud at Jimmy’s gingham comment ๐Ÿ˜‚ I bought myself a “table cloth” summer dress, it’s quite retro/vintage style and I really like it! I wore it in Greece and did joke at the time that I might match the tablecloth haha, as a lot of Greek restaurants have blue gingham paper cloths.

    Some of my favourites from this week: catching up with a friend and having dinner with her to celebrate her birthday, getting out for a hike and picnic with my boyfriend, and treating myself to some new perfume.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    1. Yes! It was a good week!

      I’m glad you could see the humor in the “table cloth” pattern, hahah!! So funny about you going to Greece and being worried about matching the table cloths! That is a classic Greece thing, huh?!

      Yay for friend time, a hike and picnic with your boyfriend โค๏ธ, and a new perfume! What scent is it?!

      Hope your week goes great!!

      1. Yeah I love the combination of blue and white that’s so common in Greece. Some of the houses/villas are painted white and then have blue doors and window frames. It’s such a pretty combination, especially with all the flowering and climbing plants that are common there, like jasmine and bougainvillea.

        The scent is Osmanthus flower by L’Occitane. I’d describe it as a light, soft floral, ideal for summer ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m really enjoying wearing it.
