Good morning and Happy Friday to all of you out there! The anticipation of the weekend is upon us again and I’m pretty sure we can all agree that is something to smile about, right?
Sticking with Friday tradition around here, below you will find some things that I am loving this week. As always, I’d love to hear about something that is making you smile in the comments section of this post. Have a fabulous weekend!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- Bridal Shower Crafting
My sister’s bridal shower is tomorrow!!! My mom and I have been crafting away and having the best time planning for the shower and I’m excited for Leslie to finally be able to see everything!
- Hotel Sleepover with Merri
When I found out I was going to be in NYC for such a short amount of time, I was determined to somehow see one of my best friends who lives in the city while I was there. Merri ended up meeting me at my hotel late on Tuesday night for a sleepover and we curled up in the fluffy hotel bed and had the best time together doing absolutely nothing! The next morning, we took a 6 a.m. Soul Cycle class which is basically the most amazing spinning class in all the land. And then we followed up our sweaty workout with a cronut, which leads me to my next bullet point…
Croissant + Doughnut = Cronut. And yes, it tasted just as amazing as it looks! Merri and I lucked out and were able to snag raspberry lychee cronuts from Dominique Ansel’s bakery without waiting in the infamous line that usually forms outside well before the bakery opens. The weather was wet dreary so the line was a lot shorter than it normally is and we took advantage of this and I fell in love with my cronut after one bite. I’m not sure whether this would even be feasible, but if I was getting married in NYC, I’d be awfully tempted to assemble a “cronut cake” for my wedding rather than a traditional wedding cake. Unreal!
- No TV
I really need to dedicate an entire post to this topic, but Ryan and I have been loving our decision to forgo both cable and basic television in our house. Now we only watch DVDs or Netflix movies. Or Downton Abbey online (okay, so I watch that one solo). I like this so much better because we’re watching TV with intention and not mindlessly staring at shows we don’t care about at all. It has been a great change in our house!
I’m not sure why, but I constantly keep a list of my top five favorite foods in my head. When I bite into something that I really love, I find myself wondering whether or not it deserves a slot in my top five food favorites. This popcorn is on the verge. Yes, I really do like it that much. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and salty. The milk chocolate is melt-in-your-mouth delicious and the buttery popcorn is just as good as the indulgent popcorn you get at the movies. We don’t have a Peterbrooke in Ocala, so I cannot help but buy it whenever I pass through the Jacksonville airport and enjoyed my little treat as I waited to board my flight to NYC on Tuesday.
