It’s Friday and I’m super excited. Do you wanna know why? Do ya? We’re going on vacation tomorrow!!! My parents, sisters, brother-in-law, nieces, Josh, Quinn, & I are all headed to sunny Florida for a belated celebration of my parent’s 40th Anniversary. Hooray! It will be a whole week of fun!
I’ll be taking the next week off from blogging, but will return soon after with pictures from our Florida adventure. I hope you all have a fantastic week! I’ll leave you with my favorite things from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites. Now, I suppose I should finish packing…

Favorite Appetizer: Potato Salad Bites. What a nifty idea; they would be a hit at any summer party!
Favorite Vacation Fashion: These T-shirts. We threatened my parents that we would make these for the trip…so hilarious!
Favorite Bars: Healthy No Bake Triple Peanut Butter Bars. Ummm, yum. I’d love to sink my teeth into one of these (healthy) bars.
Favorite Phone Case: Wooden Geo Aqua iPhone 6 Slim Case from Society6. I’m on a quest to find the perfect case for my new phone (happy Mother’s Day to me!). This website has a ton of cute cases, including this one:
Favorite 30 Minute Meal: Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet. Now doesn’t this look tasty?
Favorite Mosquito Repellent: Natural Repellents. With warmer weather, here come the mosquitoes (boo). But I’m thinking a few planters with some of the below plants would help keep them away.
Favorite Flavor: Smoked Sausage and Red Rice Skillet. I made a cheesy pasta with smoked sausage in it last weekend (a-mazing, link here), so now I’m all about smoked sausage dishes. This skillet sounds delicious!
Favorite Fold: Three Pocket Fold Napkin Tutorial. Because I want my napkins to be fancy…
Favorite Cookies: Twix Cookies. Twix cookies look even better than Twix candy bars.
Favorite Stand: DIY 3-Tier Dessert Tray. I searched for a 3-tier dessert tray for Quinn’s birthday party but just couldn’t find the right one. I love this tutorial, now I just need to find the perfect plates to make one! (P.S. This tutorial is in Swedish, but includes an English translation)
Favorite Chicken: Baked Caprese Chicken. Fresh, light, and oh-so simple. I love all things basil and tomato in the summertime.
Favorite Scrub: Coffee Sugar Scrub Cubes. How invigorating do these sound? I’d need to buy a few ingredients to make it, but I think it’d be worth it (and it would make a great gift to others).
Favorite Breakfast: Waffled Churro French Toast Sticks. BREAKFAST IS MY FAVORITE! Seriously, waffle sticks are where it’s at. And this recipe is way easier than you might imagine.
Favorite Funny: The Best of “Next Week on Mad Men.” I’m so sad that the series finale of Mad Men is happening in just a couple of days. I’m even more sad that the “Next Week on Mad Men” clips at the end of the show are done forever. They always gave me a good chuckle.
Happy Friday!! I’ll be back 🙂
