Favorite Song: Try Again by Aaliyah When was the last time you heard this song? It’s a great one and speaks the truth. If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.

It also reminds me of this…

Favorite Recipe: I think these baked zucchini sticks with sweet onion dip would be the perfect healthy game day snack to tone it down some!

Baked Zucchini Sticks and Sweet Onion Dip:


Favorite Snack: Have you tried the Sea Salt Roasted Chickpeas? These things are delicious!!! I had tried the chipotle lime ones a year or so ago and wasn’t impressed but these….these are awesome!!

Favorite Lust: Has anyone tried the Too Faced foundation yet? I really love Too Faced eye make up but haven’t tried any face products.  I would love to know your thoughts! I am about half way through my Make UP Forever Matte foundation and I don’t know if I love it like I used to.

This weekend is going to be one of bad decisions. Mainly bad food decisions. We are heading to Breakin’ Bread on Sunday and I had the best time last year, so I know it won’t disappoint!! Basically 35 of the best restaurants around Birmingham will be having unlimited tastings all in one place. Birmingham peeps, if you have’t gotten your tickets already…well then I am not sure what you are doing with your life!


Laura and I at Breakin’ Bread last year!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!! I will see you back here Monday with food porn, no doubt!

Linking up with Amanda.

    I love Try Again and I love it even more when sexy Danny dances to it! Where did you find the chickpeas? I’ve looked everywhere! The food festival sounds so good, though I’m all about anything that involves food and booze. Happy Friday!

  • Reply Mattie September 25, 2015 at 1:22 pm

    YESSS Danny’s dance moves! *insert cry laughing emojis* Those zucchini sticks with that dip sound amazing. I’ve never had packaged roasted chickpeas but Michael made some in our oven one time and those things are addictive! So good!

  • Reply Erin LFF September 25, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    Definitely guilty of MANY of those photo poses haha! And I LOVE making baked zucchini sticks like that, we dip them in marinara a lot but your idea of sweet onion dip sounds SO good 🙂

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine September 25, 2015 at 2:33 pm

    I still need to do that peanuts me! Oh my goodness, breaking bread sounds so much fun, and I’ll bet you’ll be looking even cuter this year, that picture last year was so stinking cute of you and Laura! I love to make zucchini sticks and bake them in the oven I feel like I’m getting something fried but a little more healthy. Have fun this weekend girl, I see a few extra reps in your future, ha ha that’s what I’d be doing, hee hee! I hope you have an amazing weekend sweet lady!

    The zucchini sticks look like a great little guiltless treat! Enjoy the weekend!

  • Reply alyssa September 25, 2015 at 4:06 pm

    Oh sweet lord those chickpeas are going on my shopping list IMMEDIATELY! Thanks for sharing 😉 have a great weekend!

  • Reply Amanda September 26, 2015 at 9:45 am

    I’ve had the sea salt chickpeas and I liked them but they were a little bit bland for me. I definitely like the habanero pepper flavored ones I tried better. Had a little bit of a kick!
    I’m curious about that new Too Faced foundation, too!!! I have yet to find my holy grail foundation.

  • Reply Kerry September 27, 2015 at 9:30 pm

    Baked zucchini sticks are so good. Hope you have a great time, sounds like there will be lots of good food.

  • Reply September 28, 2015 at 7:19 am
