Is it just me, or does the pumpkin “craze” start earlier and earlier every year? Sure, I would love a little cooler weather but let’s save the lattes and sweaters until October. With that being said, you won’t find any pumpkin-anything on this edition of Friday Favorites because it still feels like summer. Oh, and just so you know, I’m having a really hard time parting with my white pants. Part of me is totally old school and says I can’t wear them until next Easter weekend but another part of me says to forget the rules. I guess if that’s the biggest dilemma I have this week I’m doing just fine.
Favorite Refresh: Coconut Water Iced Coffee. Like I said, it still feels like summer and this drink sounds so refreshing without any funky ingredients. The perfect afternoon pick-me-up.
Favorite Wake-Up: Oatmeal Cookie Granola. I am a breakfast girl. As in, I have to eat breakfast. It’s not an option. I could totally get on board with a bowl of Greek yogurt topped with Oatmeal Cookie Granola and banana slices. Good morning!
Favorite Fashion: While I’m not ready for full-blown cold weather, I am ready to wear my jeans to football games. And I would totally rock this look while tailgating. The only thing missing: a mimosa.
Favorite Drool: how sweet eats’ cookbook hit bookshelves around the country this week. I had to have a copy of my own. I cannot wait to make every.single.recipe. And gain five pounds in the process.
Favorite Crunch: Coconut Almonds. With only three ingredients, this may be my newest snack time obsession.
Favorite Style: While we have no plans to move in the near future, I often find myself daydreaming of how I’ll decorate our next living room. I am craving a little more light and bright.
Favorite Slurp: BBQ Chicken Chili. While it’s no where near time for chili and soup, how comforting does this bowl look? Maybe in a month or two it’ll be cool enjoy to enjoy this with an ice cold cider.
Favorite Crave: Honey Hoisin Baby Back Ribs. As soon as football season hits, I start plotting when we’ll devour a rack of ribs. I seriously crave these messy, carnivorous bites every fall. And it’s one craving Big Guy can get on board with.
Favorite Indulge: Peanut Butter Cake Bars. There’s nothing quite like the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. These bars are the kind of things that make you speechless.
Favorite Sip: French 75. I had my first French 75 last Sunday evening and now I’m obsessed. As in, I’m counting down the days until we have a date night so I can make my own at home. It’s probably my new favorite drink and I didn’t even drink gin until this summer.
Cheers! It’s Friday.
