2017 Friday Favorites

I’m alive!!! Hi guys! I’m coming to you for a short and sweet F.F. and don’t-worry-I’m-still-alive update post!

It’s been a few weeks since my last post, and my only excuse is, grad school. It has all kind of come to a head and I’ve basically just been surviving. Summer is in 2 WEEKS, and   I promise to be a little more present on the blog when that time comes. I miss sharing my life with you!

I hope you have had a nice past few weeks. We have had a lot of rain + flooding, but the sunshiney weekend forecast for this weekend has me smiling. I am looking forward to a relaxing Saturday + some track meet watching! (Jake’s last one EVER!)

I’m going to get into a few favorites for the past two weeks.


1 | Trader Joe’s Multigrain Hot Cereal

I love this stuff! If you love a more textured (in a good way) oatmeal, you’ve gotta try this stuff! It makes a perfect hearty + filling breakfast when you add a spoonful of PB and sliced banana.

2 | Mario Badescu Drying Lotion


I have to be the 10948402th person to rave about this stuff. But hey, if I love something, I have to tell you about it! If I’m feeling really broken out, or just have a blemish I want to chill out, I sleep with some of this on + always wake up with nicer looking skin. Just use a q-tip to dip a little out and dot dot dot onto your face. You get to look like a pink-spotted monster, too, which is an added bonus.

3 | Easiest Guacamole Ever

Earlier this week I had an avocado I needed to use up, and some leftover pico-style salsa, so I chopped up the avo + added it to the container! Mix it up, and you have the easiest, fastest guac ever! (P.S. I love Aldi’s mild fresh salsa! So good.)

4 | Double Digits


Guys. We are FINALLY in the double digits for days until the wedding. (98!!!) I feel like the next three months are going to fly by, and I couldn’t be happier. Also, Jake and I have a million weddings to attend between now and then, and I have a feeling they are all going to make us even more excited for ours! My bridal shower is next month (!!!!) which will make the wedding feel so real. Can’t wait to share pics from that with you!


Have an amazing weekend!
