Friday Favorites

It appears to be time for Friday Favorites already!!! My favorite thing is the fact that it is Friday. Ha! This weekend we have a tasting at a new restaurant in town. It is a different concept than anything else in the area and that makes me all kinds of excited. It is a Puerto Rican/Caribbean style restaurant that has tostones as a staple on their menu. You know I will be sharing photos!!! Other than that, I am not sure what else we have going on other than the usual cleaning and grocery shopping.

Anyone sign in to Bloglovin this morning and it look totally different? I changed mine back to list view I wasn’t expecting that!

Favorite Song: Trap Queen – I keep hearing this everywhere lately and it is so random.

Favorite Mac Siting:


Favorite Recipe: This Brussels Sprouts, Cranberry and Quinoa Salad looks so great for this summer weather!

Favorite Purchase: I am preparing for life with child and ordered a mommy juice glass.


Favorite Lust: So I told myself early on that I wasn’t going to need some fancy diaper bag but I changed my tune after seeing this pretty!!! I decided that regular diaper bags are anywhere from $40 to $100 depending on style. For about $60 more, you can have a beautiful designer leather bag that you can turn in to a weekend/overnight/travel/laptop bag after it’s life as a diaper bag. Sounds like the smarter investment to me! Hmmm brown or black, I can’t decide?

When I show up to some fancy southern bridal tea or baby tea and there are only drinks and nuts…

When I finally allow myself a coffee every now and then….

How I feel right. now.

When Chris is being all good on his low carb diet and I order a burger and fries….

I hope you all have  fabulous weekend!!! Linking up with Amanda.

    I noticed the Bloglovin change and no thanks! I love that black bag – it is so chic! Have a great weekend, lady!

    I immediately changed my Bloglovin back…UGH, why do they do that stuff?! I will totally be the Mom with the designer diaper bag, it’s such a good investment in my opinion! And umm I LOVE Trap Queen. We went to a piano bar in Pittsburgh last year for my bachelorette and my group requested it…it was hilarious. Chuck made our DJ play it at the wedding and I went crazy, it was really funny to see everyone dancing to it!

    Happy Friday! Ugh, what is up with bloglovin changing things with no warning. I don’t always do well with change and this was annoying and felt all over the place. Enjoy your tasting! New restaurants are always fun to check out. That salad looks really good and I’m cracking up at that wine glass. Mickey Mouse club house is forever on in our house :\ Beautifully Candid

    That black bag is beautiful and absolutely necessary! Enjoy the new restaurant!

    I think you need that bag in black because you will use it for everything! Also, yes to your funnies. When I go onto that second page of google, you know I will find that answer!

  • Reply Dani August 5, 2016 at 9:58 am

    Oooh, loving the bag in black, mostly because it would go with basically everything! I always get my friends mommy wine glasses as a present when they’re expecting- that one is really cute! I got 123- woot! The Care Bears sending thoughts/prayers- exactly lol! Enjoy the new restaurant, looking forward to foodie pics!

    I haven’t used Bloglovin in forever, because their format is terrible and they’re always having a bunch of glitches. I still use GFC and type in URL’s for my fav blogs – old school. Those diapar bags are fabulous, especially loving the black one. And yes to the mommy sippy cup! We can cheers ours from afar <3

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter August 5, 2016 at 10:10 am

    I am 100% with you on the diaper bag! I had a nice black coach one with my daughter and I dont regret it at all. I didnt carry a purse at that time and just chucked my keys in stuff in there also so it made sense. Treat yoself! You are growing a human. You totally deserve a nice bag.

    That Carebear meme… YES! I think the same thing 🙂 haha
    There’s a GIF of Bunny Graveyard Girl 🙂 That made me smile. I take a drink of my iced coffee & do that ‘sippy sippy’ thing now all the time from watching too much of her 🙂
    That quinoa salad – I’ve made before – DELISH!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders August 5, 2016 at 12:29 pm

    Haha I love that mommy juice glass! I definitely need to add this to list of wine glasses that I need in my life, even if it’s a need in the future! Mac is such a cutie! It’s always the best feeling when pups just want to cuddle up with you! That new restaurant sounds really good! Hopefully you make it by this weekend! Have a great Friday and weekend!

  • Reply Audrey August 5, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    I typically lean toward black, but I love that brown diaper bag 🙂 I got a 120 on my food IQ quiz! I wonder what all that is based on, haha!
    Have a great weekend!!

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native August 5, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    THE DIAPER BAG. Omg you have to get it. It is soooo pretty!!! That salad sounds so good! But I have to say…right now, a burger and fries just sounds so much better. Ha!

  • Reply kristen August 5, 2016 at 1:42 pm

    ummmmmmmmmmmm you need both of those bags. hahahaha. i guess you couldn’t go wrong with either though. i totally agree you may as well spend more and get a fancier one that will last you a long time.
    girl i am with you, thank goodness it’s friday. i’m so over this week. love that glass!

    Bloglovin confused me! I changed mine back, too.

  • Reply Amy August 6, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    I’m a dork – didn’t even investigate that I could change the Bloglovin’ look. Just changed it back because the new version sucked! Trap Queen – that song is fun and naughty! Fancy diaper bag . . . things are so much swaggier these days! Ha!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis August 7, 2016 at 8:49 pm

    The care bear funny is too cute! Can’t wait to hear about the Puerto Rican/Caribbean restaurant tasting…that’s some of my favorite food!

  • Reply Jackie August 8, 2016 at 10:15 am

    I broke up with Bloglovin about a year ago and use Feedly now. It was around the time when people would post and Bloglovin would decide to never put up their post, or it would be hours later.

    That food IQ quiz was fun! Your IQ is 120!
    Congratulations! According to your food opinions, your IQ is above average, so congrats! That means you’re pretty smart, and you should be proud. At least, you’re smart according to your food opinions. Well done!

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World August 8, 2016 at 2:53 pm

    Lol I took that quiz & got a 127. What I really got out of it though is that I want to make a lot of that food.

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family August 9, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    I don’t know what it is about meaningless quizes like that, but I love taking them, haha! I got a 125, but it says the same thing that yours does. Such a random thing to quiz and yet I still get sucked in, haha!

    Also, I quit watching Vampire Diaries after the end of season six because a favorite character of mine left the show and I just didn’t enjoy it as much after that. But seeing that Damien gif and his comment makes me miss the early seasons of that show. I’m kind of tempted to go back and rewatch those now.
