Friday Favorites

Well this week sure did get away from me! I meant to show up Monday for weekend shenanigans, but it never did happen. Summer is in full swing down here in the south. Hot, humid, muggy, random thunderstorms. I am like, hey fall, where you at??? But, I so love spending time with Zoe outside in the evenings! We play golf, ring toss, bubbles, go for walks, ride her bike. It is just so much fun!

Favorite Meal: Last Friday, Laura and I went to East West Birmingham. It was my first time, I have been dying to go since they opened last year. They only do lunch on Fridays, so you have to plan ahead. We shared some fried cauliflower as an app, and I ordered a pork belly and short rib bao bun as my main dish. SO FREAKING DELISH!!!! Those buns are like tiny clouds. Freaking yum. I hope to go back again soon!

Favorite Treat: My friend and I have made a habit of stopping by Birmingham Candy Company after our lunches when we meet at Pizitz. They are amazing!!! There is so much to chose from, everything is delicious, and the people that work there are so nice and friendly. They are seriously passionate about what they do, and I mean, who wouldn’t be when you are serving up little happies to everyone. If you are ever in Birmingham, you have to make this stop!

Favorite Moments: We went to Rodney Scott BBQ last Saturday, and then walked around 5 Points with Zoe and showed her the Storyteller Fountain. Which honestly, is quite creepy, but a staple landmark and fun to see. By the way, Rodney Scotts has the best turkey and hush puppies in all the land, and their kids chicken meal is so delicious!

Favorite Purchase: My hair dryer caught on fire last Friday. What a way to start the day, am I right??? It was time for a new one, so I headed to Ulta and grabbed the Drybar, after so many people messaged me that it was the best. I have to admit, I am loving it so far!!! I noticed that it doesn’t get near as hot as my old one…but I am thinking that is part of its magic? My hair has been sooooo soft all week!! It was quite pricey, but I am thinking worth it.

Favorite Funnies:

    1. I hated the Disney Bao short and couldn’t believe that stupid thing won so many awards… but I mean bao buns are fucking delicious and I could see why she’d eat it.. Just sayin.
    2. PREACH about where is fall. LAWD I’ve only been back for a week and it has been 100% fuckthisshitoclock every time I have to even look outside.
    3. I wanted so badly to love Rodney Scott.. but what I had (pulled pork once, then ribs another time, I think) just wasn’t write home about.. Especially compared to other bbq places within smelling distance of our Rodney Scott location. 🙁

    I cannot read your posts so early in the morning– they make me so hungry! I am trying to enjoy summer and not desperately wish for fall, but sometimes it feels like the weather is just as bad as winter because it’s so extreme. Your evenings with Zoe sound like so much fun– we keep hoping Mason will be able to stay up a little later but he just keeps waking up super early.

    Bao buns – so so good. I love summer, because it’s always just play outside or play in the water time. And at least that takes away some of the TV time. I still need to try the hush puppies at Rodney Scott!

    Can’t wait to hear more about the hair dryer, especially since I have the same brand that blew up on you.

    The bao buns look so good!! I went down to Houston a few days ago & it was the first time I had been down there in the summer in like 4 years… I forgot how gross it is. It was definitely “fuck this shit” degrees!

    Zoe in the sunnies, I can’t handle it…so cute. Glad to hear you got an awesome dryer, I love my Dyson…pricey, but worth every penny with my hair. Have a great weekend!

    It’s been crazy humid here so I can’t even imagine what you all are going through. All of your food always gets me so excited! I feel like my dryer is on its way out so I need to look into this one. Hope you have a great weekend! Sierra Beautifully Candid

    Your lunch from last Friday is making me hungry for lunch this Friday.

    I wanted to try out that drybar hairdryer as well. Glad to know that you are liking it. All of that food looks sooo amazing. I am drooling over here.

    It’s such weird weather where I live – it’s kind of felt like Fall a bit. Then crazy storms, and humidness and heat. And I just want to swim for a bit and then it can go straight to Fall. LOL I love all of your memes – too funny, especially the last one!

    I’m officially hungry now, and am craving candy! Booooo to your old hairdryer, but YAY for the new pretty one. Drybar can do no wrong <3
