Friday Favorites

Yanny or Laurel, anyone? Obviously it is Laurel, I am not an animal. It has been a week. Work is busy, adulting is hard, it has been rainy and gross, and I am ready for the weekend! I am not sure what we are doing this weekend, I am just glad to have a little break!

Favorite Moments: Chris’s birthday was Monday. Every year, we each pick up two slices of cookie cake for each other’s birthdays. Cookie cake is LIFE! We choose to do individual slices because there is zero self control (at least on my end) when it comes to cookie cake sitting around. It sucks when your birthday falls on a Monday, but this hopefully made it a little better!

On Tuesday, my cube neighbor brought me beautiful hydrangeas. How sweet is she????? They still look like this today!

Laura and I hit up Urban Cookhouse on Wednesday for lunch. It is highly likely that I will order the Very Berry Salad with grilled turkey every. single. time. SO GOOD. What is it about salad from a restaurant that is so much better than one you can make at home?

Laura brought me the cutest cup back from her trip to San Fran, and she got Zoe a super fun purple tshirt that received squeals when presented to her. I love coffee cups that are big enough to hold 12 ounces and some frothed milk 🙂 

Zoe and I stopped for some frozen yogurt at Yogurt Mountain that afternoon. She was so excited when she saw all the different toppings and yogurt flavors. She kept pointing and saying “me me me me!!!!” She was more excited about her blueberries and nilla wafer than the actual yogurt itself. She loved sitting there though, she is such a people watcher. I am sure we will visit a few times this summer.

Her eye is a little swollen in these pictures, we had a doctors appointment to get it checked out. Silly allergies. 

Yesterday I had lunch at Farm Bowl with a friend. Having an acai bowl for lunch is seriously such a treat! I cant even tell  you how many times I laughed. So good for the soul.

Favorite Recipe: How good does this sweet potato enchilada skillet look?

Spiralized Sweet Potato Enchilada Skillet, an easy vegetarian dinner recipe made with spiralizer sweet potato noodles that cooks in one pot and is ready in 30 minutes!

Favorite Lust: These double frayed jeans from the Loft are so cute on. I regret not purchasing them when I was there last week and might need to go back for them next time they are running a sale.

I really like the height of these wedges. They aren’t very high at all, and the ankle strap is stretchy with no buckle. The gunmetal color would match so many things. I saw them at Macy’s, but I know other places carry them also. Thoughts?

Isn't this the way you are supposed to measure peanut butter? I'm confused...

    That cookie cake though. I also have no self-control and cannot keep sweets in the house. So I continue to hear Yanny… and it sounds like the fucking devil. I hate it, I hate this whole thing. Hahaha. Poor Zoe – hate that she’s going to suffer with allergies! Hope she’s feeling better and that you guys have a great weekend!

    Squirrel rave!!!! That’s such a cute tradition with the cookie cake! Team Laurel for sure – even when I try to make myself here Yanny, I just can’t. I hope you guys have a nice relaxing weekend!

    Oh man I haven’t had cookie cake in so long!! I would eat a whole one too if it was around. The whole Yanny/Laurel thing makes me stabby. I have heard both… and got the explanation… but I still hate it! I am 100% a person that if I ask if you want my honest opinion you better think twice ha.

    OMG that 2 hour thing after the kids go to bed is the realest thing ever.
    I LOVE hydrangeas! I have some fake ones at home.
    Mmmm cookie cake is my weakness. Do you have a Great American Cookie? That’s where we go.

    As always your food photos all look so delicious! I want a cookie cake! And an acai bowl! And that salad, minus the berries though, I just can’t get on board with berries in salad.
    Super cute mug! I have plenty of mugs but I’m bored with them all and want something new.
    LOL, Ducks in a row… Yeah not so much over here either!

    I hear Yanny!! Brian thinks I am crazy. After listening for a few minutes though, I did hear Laurel as well. SO WEIRD. Those hydrangeas are gorgeous!!
    Hope you guys have a relaxing and recharging weekend!!!!

    Omg, that country song one…and the squirrels at a rave! Love it.
    I heard the Yanny/Laurel thing on TV first and I heard Yanny and my mom heard Laurel. I listened to something online and we both heard Laurel so who knows what’s happening? LOL It’s so weird though!
    Oh gosh, cookie cake! I don’t know where I can get just a slice, but that would be handy.

    That meme about cramming your life into a two hour window is sooo true. That cookie cake looks amazing. I wouldn’t be able to control myself either. Love the froyo pictures with sweet Zoe. I hope you have a great week!
