As soon as this blog post is published, Ryan and I are heading off to the airport to catch a flight to Chicago. Kristen, one of my best friends from high school, is getting married in Schaumburg on Saturday and I’m looking forward to a fun-filled wedding weekend that will kick off with a rehearsal this evening. Obviously the anticipation of quality time with friends is the number one thing I’m loving right now, but below you will find a list of some more things that made me smile this week.
As always, please share something you’re loving this week in the comments section of this post. Have a great weekend, my friends!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- Stitch Fix Photo Shoot Pictures
I promised you guys I would share some of the photos from the Stitch Fix photo shoot that took place in San Francisco last month. Here are a few of the pictures where my awkward hands don’t look too awkward (hopefully)!
Just FYI for those of you who use Stitch Fix, everything you see us wearing is from Stitch Fix, so you can request anything you see in a future fix if you something above catches your eye. (I’m actually putting in a request for the pink dress I wore and the denim vest on the above mannequin!)
Doodle is the most amazing website for anyone looking for an easy way to find a date and/or time that works for a bunch of people for a meeting, party, vacation, etc. I’ve used it for everything from scheduling conference calls to bachelorette parties! It’s the best.
- Dinner at 131 Main
Last weekend we grabbed dinner at 131 Main, a restaurant many people recommended to us when we moved to the area. It lived up to the hype and Ryan, Eric and I all loved our meals. Ryan and I are hoping to enjoy some more date nights at local restaurants, so if you live in the area (Charlotte or north of the city) and have restaurant recommendations, I’d love to hear them! (I’m also still combing through your awesome comments and recommendations on my first post announcing our move, so thank you for those, too!)
The first time I tried kombucha, I thought it tasted like armpit. Horrible! Well, after trying a bottle of Clearly Kombucha a few months ago and actually liking it, I decided to give it a second chance a while back and honestly enjoy it! Who would’ve thought? Maybe it’s one of those things you learn to love? (I hated coffee at first, too!) I am a big fan of carbonation and love the fizziness of the drink. It reminds me of soda but without all the sweetness and crappy ingredients. I’m a fan!
- Eating Well Magazine
I picked up a copy of this magazine at a booth at Wanderlust and as I flipped through it on the flight home, I found myself folding over page after page so I could easily locate all of the delicious recipes in the magazine. Eating Well features tons of healthy recipes, but perhaps my favorite thing about many of the recipes is that they seem easy to make. I’m all about super simple meals!
- Toasted Coconut Chips
These Dang Toasted Coconut Chips were an impulse buy at Fresh Market this week. I thought they might be a good topping for Greek yogurt but once I opened the bag after dinner one evening, I couldn’t stop eating them. If you’re a big time fan of coconut like me, I cannot recommend these enough. Ridiculously delicious!
