Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: I am jamming to Mynga I’m Done. It’s sort of like a good angry song. I don’t know, it calmed me down at work this week.

Favorite Moments:

–On Tuesday, I met up with a friend for lunch at Shiki. It was so nice to just chit chat and not worry about the fact that it was Tuesday. Not to mention that their Masaman chicken is just the best!!! And coconut tofu soup. Always the soup.


–Yesterday, Chris’s company had a baby shower for him and he brought home so much stuff!!! I felt so overwhelmed and blessed going through it all last night. One of the things that they got was this book, Oh Baby! The Place You’ll Go. It is the sweetest book. I read it out loud this morning when I was sitting in her room surrounded by all the things and she started kicking around in there. I know she can hear me, it was seriously the coolest thing!!! This was the picture he sent me yesterday after the shower…


Favorite Recipe:Like seriously, how amazing does this look??? And caramel? Stop it!!!

Caramel Apple French Toast Casserole:


Favorite Snack: I have had the Terra chips before and they were good. I think I have had the mixed bag of like beets and carrots and the Mediterranean ones. For some reason, I picked up a bag of the sea salt sweet potato ones three weeks ago and I cant stop with these! They are soooooo good.

Favorite Lust:I really love these 574 Sneakers in the color Lush. Like how cute and cozy are these for fall/winter???

And I am thinking that this top would be great to hide under until I can get my body back in shape after baby. I really love the Lush brand from Nordstrom, they have some great and affordable pieces. It comes in some seriously gorgeous colors I am thinking the one below and Fig would be just right for me!

Favorite Links:

–Just be basic already. This is a list of basic fall things, and most of these things I must do each year!

–See what fall show you should watch based on your zodiac sign. Found this interesting….

–Have you seen the lists that BuzzFeed does of the 21 things to add to your Amazon wish list. This is the most recent one, but if you google it there are a ton of them and they have the coolest things!!! Great for gift ideas too.

    And now I’m hungry! That caramel apple French toast casserole looks so good! It sounds like you had some awesome moments this week, especially getting spoiled by your husband’s coworkers! That’s so awesome that she started kicking when you were reading to her! Have a great weekend!

    Okay, how sweet are Chris’s coworkers! They really went all out! I bought a bag of sweet potato chips at Starbucks last week and they’re all I want to eat now. Haha. And I need that Marcia Brady gif for so many situations! Happy Friday!

    As always, I adore your Friday favorites! I am just so happy that Chris’s coworkers gave him a baby shower, that is so precious and he obviously must work for a great company! I just ordered that top in burgundy and can’t wait to get it, and I’m thinking I should pair it with some kind of leopard accessory. Oh sweetie I need those sneakers too as 574 is my area code so I think it’s a must that I get them, LOL! I hope you have the best weekend my sweet friend!

    Coworkers are awesome! Mine threw me a shower at work and it was so nice. People have been so generous with baby and I am thankful. I have always wanted to try the Lush tunics, but haven’t actually bought one. I like all of the Lush tops.

  • Reply Erika September 9, 2016 at 9:01 am

    The coworker shower was so sweet! That little baby clearly already has a great support system. And those sneakers look amazing. Not that I need more shoes but I am now majorly lusting over those

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World September 9, 2016 at 9:52 am

    That is so sweet that they threw a baby shower. I am in love with that top. It’s super cute & you could make it casual or dress it up.

  • Reply carly September 9, 2016 at 9:54 am

    What amazing gifts from Chris’s co-workers– that book sounds so sweet. Your Tuesday lunch looks amazing– and I don’t think I could ever make that french toast because I would probably eat the entire thing- yum!

  • Reply Marie September 9, 2016 at 9:56 am

    What great gifts from Chris’s co-workers, how thoughtful. Oh that french toast looks sooo good. Love those sneakers, I love love New Balances. Happy Friday!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo September 9, 2016 at 10:10 am

    that title of my memoir… I busted out laughing.

    AHHH – I love the baby is already hearing you read to her. That is so precious.

  • Reply Stephanie September 9, 2016 at 10:15 am

    Actually the only fall basics I like on that list are Halloween costume for me. And for Hawkeye 🙂 Spot on for the zodiac tv show for me (Scorpio). I love Anthony Hopkins. But not for Cancer… maybe for Cancer girls but John would never watch the shows listed under Cancer, we’d both hate those.

  • Reply Heather September 9, 2016 at 10:25 am

    Mmmm I love masaman curry too! SOO delicious and now I am also totally craving some. LOL. I love that book for the baby! SO sweet!! I really love that shirt and definitely think it would be very post-partum friendly!!!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista September 9, 2016 at 10:35 am

    A Ryan Styles gif for the win! You need those sneakers – so pretty! And how sweet of Chris’ work to throw that shower, so many goodies! Happy Friday <3

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky September 9, 2016 at 10:40 am

    yay! so many great shower gifts. they even got you guys a britax stroller! that’s a legit brand and they make excellent car seats.

    the minion meme is hilarious. i always do that – think that “LOL” softens the blow. i even sometimes SAY that at the end of a sentence. once i was pissed at something at work, i said something pretty harsh to that person and the whole room went silent so i said “um, LOL?” hahahahah

  • Reply Dani September 9, 2016 at 11:42 am

    Ahhh so much goodness in this post! Masaman chicken is my go-to at Thai places, and I had it on Tuesday too! I always get that book or The Tale of Peter Rabbit along with a stuffed bunny. It’s one of my favorites-and you really can’t go wrong with Dr. Suess! That’s so nice of Chris’ company to throw him a shower! Also, I really love that top- and all the colors it comes in! Going to check out the other links now- have a great weekend!

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter September 9, 2016 at 11:55 am

    That was so sweet of Chris’ coworkers to throw him a shower! You got a lot of awesome stuff! That Britax stroller looks great! Dr. Seuss is my fave! That book is so simple and yet so inspiring! I am getting excited for you baby girl to come and I bet you are too! Enjoy this time! Have a great weekend! xo

    The childhood goal meme is so accurate 🙂
    That caramel french toast casserole looks SO good. And how SWEET of your hubby’s coworkers!! That’s the nicest surprise! Have a great weekend!!

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots September 9, 2016 at 2:52 pm

    How sweet that Chris’s company threw him a shower! I love my New Balance 574s in sweatshirt gray and bright yellowish/green, and those ones you shared are so pretty!

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native September 9, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    I have been eyeing that shirt in the burgundy color (probably fig that you mentioned, but I didn’t look!) and once it goes on sale it will be mine! Hahaha. I’ve also been wanting cute NB sneakers like that for a while but I’m just not sure I can pull it off or not so I’ve shied away.

  • Reply mandie September 9, 2016 at 4:20 pm

    Caramel Apple French Toast Casserole?! Oh…my…goodness!! I want that RIGHT NOW! Sounds amazing! 🙂

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis September 9, 2016 at 8:34 pm

    That’s so fun Chris had a baby shower thrown for him at work! I don’t know many workplaces that celebrate the dad-to-be but I’m sure it got him excited for baby girl to come. LOL so true about childhood punishments becoming adulting goals! The Twist Front Woven Shirt is very cute for maternity wear and even after!

  • Reply texerinsydney September 9, 2016 at 9:04 pm

    I think it is so wonderful and incredibly awesome that Chris was thrown a baby shower. I mean the dad’s are becoming a parent too. I can’t gush enough how sweet I think that is.

  • Reply Robin September 9, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    That chicken looks delicious! I have never heard of someone throwing a baby shower for the father before, but I think it’s awesome! Sorry for ranting, but I hate society’s idea that the baby is more interesting/exciting for the mother and the father is just a background prop.

  • Reply Katie Elizabeth September 10, 2016 at 2:35 pm

    We LOVE the Terra chips!! Try the coconut flavor sometime – so strange but also so good! And how sweet of Chris’s work! Nick’s threw him a diaper party and we have YET to buy our own diapers… 11 weeks in! It’s been amazing!

  • Reply Amanda September 11, 2016 at 8:33 am

    So thoughtful of Chris’ co-workers to have that shower!!!!! They sure spoiled baby girl! 😀

  • Reply Emelia September 11, 2016 at 5:10 pm

    What awesome co-workers! I have a few Lush tees and LOVE them, need more of their stuff for sure! I LOVE those sneakers too….I’m a sucker for shoes 🙂

  • Reply Amy Getz September 11, 2016 at 8:41 pm

    Massaman Curry is my JAM – love it so much! And I think it’s just fabulous how generous the folks at Chris’ office were to him (and you and Baby girl) . . . that’s a testament to him being a good guy if folks were so giving! And that 21 Amazon wish list items sucked me in . . . although I resisted putting any in my cart!

  • Reply ellesees.net September 12, 2016 at 7:51 am

    That is so wonderful that they threw him a shower!! I love that.

  • Reply laura September 15, 2016 at 8:55 am

    I can’t believe you posted that delicious appley goodness on your blog when I refused to click on the link you sent me for it! Now that’s all I’m going to want!!! Chris’ coworkers are the bomb.com for showering you guys with so much love. This little girl is going to be so spoiled!
