Good morning, friends! To say I’m excited about this coming weekend is an understatement. Yesterday was our BIG 18-week anatomy scan/ultrasound and on Sunday, along with our families, we will find out if we’re having a boy or a girl. Any guesses? To be honest, I’m just relieved that Baby W looks healthy and was incredibly active yesterday morning at our appointment. The reveal plus a recap of the past several weeks will be on the blog early next week. So while I’m trying to occupy my thoughts with anything other than “pink” or “blue,” here are my favorites from the week!
Favorite Breakfast: Cherry Pecan Muesli. Breakfast is a MUST for me. This oat mixture would make delicious overnight oats for those mornings when I need breakfast ASAP.
Favorite Inspiration: The 10 Most Organized Drawers on the Internet. If money were no issue and The Container Store was closer, I would probably organize my heart out. And the food storage container drawer is probably something most households need.
Favorite Healthy: The Best Detox Broccoli Cheese Soup. The cooler mornings are making me crave a little bit of fall. This soup looks divine and it’s such a tease – because there’s no cheese used at all! Would love to have this as leftovers for quick lunches.
Favorite Chewy: Levain Chocolate Chip Cookies. I’ve got cookies on the brain lately. Come on, you can’t tell me that doesn’t look delicious.
Favorite One Size: Capri Swing Sweatshirt. I love a good striped shirt and with a one size fits most tag, perhaps I could actually wear this throughout the fall and into the winter.
Favorite Round-Up: 125 of My Favorite Recipes for Football Season! Football Food! Ya’ll know I like football because of the tailgate and this year more than every I like the tailgate because of the food. Go ahead, Big Guy, browse the recipes and make some requests!
Favorite Happy Baking: Vanilla Bean Bundt Cake with Pecan Praline Glaze. So simple yet a showstopper. I would love to make this cake to share with others.
Favorite Color: Aquamarine. So Big Guy’s old office will become the new guest bedroom as we do a few home renovations before baby. The room is painted “toffee” currently. Yesterday I randomly had the idea to paint it in a color similar to “Balmy Seas.”
Favorite Flavors: Toasted Coconut Paleo Banana Bread Muffins. Banana + Coconut = Perfection. I need to make a batch for these for snacks and mayyyybe I’ll share with Big Guy.
Favorite Make it Virgin: Moscow Mule Float. Moscow Mules get an upgrade with a scoop of lime sherbet. And to make it virgin yet still delicious, simply leave out the vodka.
(and if you’re in the path of Irma – STAY SAFE!!!!)
