Oh hey, Friday. I should let you know that I had a double espresso this morning and might need to run around the block a few times. Whooooooo! The double espresso was needed after working a couple hours this morning and fighting the urge to take a nap when I was finished. I ain’t got time for a nap, the weekend has started and I have things to do, like read, bake, and paint my nails. Ugh, doesn’t that sound awful? 😉 Have a fantastic weekend, folks, and please enjoy browsing through my weekly roundup of favorites from around the web!

Favorite Ring: Stone Ring from Mango. I confess that I am not a huge jewelry wearer, but there’s just something about this simple stone ring. It doesn’t hurt that it only costs $14.99.
Favorite Bread: Twisted Parmesan Herb Loaf. Gorgeous loaf of bread, eh?
Favorite Paint Colors: Top 100 Benjamin Moore Paint Colors. Someday we will own a home and be able to paint walls. To help me dream, I looked through this collection of Benjamin Moore paint colors and fell head over heels for this Knoxville Gray hue.
Favorite Drink: Strawberry Spa Water. Is your water too boring?? Jazz it up with strawberries!
Favorite Wreath: Baseball Wreath. Every baseball loving family needs this wreath hanging from their front door.
Favorite Tart: Rhubarb Cream Cheese Tart. The buttery shell of a tart combined with luxurious cream cheese and sweet rhubarb sounds delicious!
Favorite Anthropologie Cheats: 38 Anthropologie Hacks. I love Anthropologie, but let’s face it, I’m kind of cheap. Thanks to this collection of hacks, I can make some of my favorite finds at Anthro on the cheap. I think I should start with these herb jars.
Favorite Pizza: Balsamic Peach Chicken Pizza. Ooh la la, does this pizza sound tasty! I am already envisioning enjoy 5 slices of it outside on a warm summer night.

Favorite Recycling Tips: 7 Ways to Reuse Wire Hangers.

Luckily, I stumbled upon this list of ways to recycle them! I’m also open to craft ideas….GO!
Favorite Breakfast: Lemon Crepes. I love a good crepe. These sound quite tasty and I love the presentation!

Favorite Sandwich: Greek Salad Sandwich. This recipe is needed because my boring turkey sandwich isn’t doing the trick anymore.
