Fri-YAY! I am totally doing the Friday dance over here.
First of all – Congrats to all the college graduates this weekend!!! Welcome to the beginning of the rest of your life. (wink wink)
I’m especially proud of my SILs (sister-in-laws) Sarah and Stephens who are graduating from UNCW and UNC Chapel Hill this weekend.
And unfortunately I won’t get to see my Momma this weekend but we’ll make up for it in a few weekends when she gets to put up with me for three whole days! I love you, Momma!
And Happy Mother’s Day to all the momma’s out there.
Anyways – back to my favorites from the week!
Favorite One-Bowl Recipe: Chocolate Chip Coconut Flour Blondies. I have a bag of coconut flour in the pantry that I keep staring at. Here’s the perfect excuse to pull it out of the pantry and bake.
Favorite Carbs + Cheese: Goat Cheese Toast with Balsamic and Roasted Tomatoes. This might just be the most amazing “single girl dinner” ever. I love toast.
Favorite Fashion: A Quick Met Gala Recap. Back in my single days I lived for watching Red Carpet events. These days I’d rather be cooking. Actually, let me honest – I’d rather be sleeping because they don’t come on until way after my bedtime. But I still like to look at all the dresses the morning after the event.
Favorite Bite: Cheesy Party Burgers. There were a lot of group texts this week with my family about the NFL Draft. I’m still not quite sure why I was included but it did make me think about tailgating. Which made me think about food.
Favorite Juicy: Layered Swing Tank. Dress it up or dress it down.
Favorite Obsessed: Four Citrus Coconut Shortbread Bars. Give me all the citrus these days. All of it.
Favorite Truth: No One Talks About the Darkness. I’m not a mommy but I have a lot of friends that are mommy’s now for the first time and friends that are expecting. And to be honest, being a mommy scares me beyond belief (a fear that I never had until recently). But Colleen keeps it real (as usual) and she’s unapologetic about it.
Favorite Fresh: Pineapple Cilantro Margarita. I didn’t have a margarita with my enchiladas and now I’m craving one big time.
