Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: Until You Were Gone by the Chainsmokers. Roll down those weekends and enjoy the vibe!

Favorite Moment: Laura and I checked out Fancy’s on 5th last night. It is a new restaurant in Avondale and it. was. amazing. There was a line out the door before they even opened, so that tells you something! We were lucky enough to grab the last shared table in the back, right in front of the oyster bar. It was cool watching the guys shuck those things. Laura ordered oysters and I ordered a side salad to start the night, and we both tried one of their amazing burgers with fries. Everything was delightful, as well as our service. Check out how cool this place is…






The Flying Pig – Burger with pimento cheese, bbq sauce and fried pork belly.

L and N

Favorite Recipe: Fried Honey Bananas – How simple, but amazing does this recipe look for a quick sweet treat or breakfast?

Honey bananas. only honey, banana and cinnamon and ALL good for you. They're amazing crispy goodness. #food:


Favorite Snack: I have been consuming these for years, but rediscovered my love for them this past week. I pick them up in the produce department at Target where the fun salad toppings are. Be warned, they are deliciously addicting!

sunflower nuts

Favorite Spring Comeback: One of my favorite things about each season is pulling out my favorite items that I had tucked away. I have had this Michael Kors bag for three years now and each spring and summer it is a real treat to bring it back out!!!

Favorite Lust: These sunglasses are so darn cute!!! Maybe I can find something similar at Nordstrom Rack for a third of the price!!

Favorite Links:

–Check out Popsugar’s Best Grocery Snacks of 2016. Some of these I am going to have to find!!! The Emerald’s cashews are amazing, though I prefer the chipotle ones!

–Have you seen the latest on the Gilmore Girls revival? I need to go back and watch the whole thing so I can be fresh for it! I missed a lot of episodes when I was in college and had night classes. That was before Netflix!!!

–Speaking of Netflix, have you checked out what is new in April? Erin Brockovich, more House Hunters, My Girl? Yes!!!

–Hungry? You can totally relate to these tweets.

–How many of these American foods have you eaten? I have had 85 of the 118! Yikes.

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter April 8, 2016 at 11:09 am

    I feel the same way about bringing out my lighter purses and Spring accessories. I keep wanting to do it but then Mother Nature goes back to Winter temps and I reconsider. It is Sunny now but tomorrow it is supposed to snow. So annoyed with the fluctuation! That burger looks RIDICULOUS. I hope you enjoyed every bite. Have a great weekend love! xo

    I love that bag and those sunglasses! I’m due for a bag refresh (it’s been about 2 years since I’ve bought a new one and would love a springy one) and it’ll be nice to have it go along with my makeup refresh.

    So many good funnies! Have a great weekend!

    I got exactly 85 out of 118 too!!!

    Odd thing to notice, I know, but I’m drawn to that neon octopus sign at Fancy’s on 5th.

    Happy weekend!

  • Reply Jenna April 9, 2016 at 9:50 pm

    Tater tots?

  • Reply Jenn @ Optimization, Actually April 11, 2016 at 12:32 pm

    I figured that the American foods would be easy since I am, indeed, an American. Nooope! I haven’t even heard of some of them. Olive loaf? Chitterlings? Red-eye gravy???

  • Reply caitlin @ candyfloss & persie April 11, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    While I hate waiting in line when I’m hungry, that does generally mean that the restaurant is JUST.THAT.GOOD. Looks delicious and what fun with your friend! PS I love those sunnies!

  • Reply Duckie April 12, 2016 at 2:47 am

    That burger looks AMAZING! And I got 78 out of 118 on that food list. A lot of the things I have never even heard of before though! Lol.

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family April 12, 2016 at 10:47 am

    I’ve eaten 88 of the things on that list, but if that number probably half of them are things I only tried once. I’ll try just about anything once. 😉

    Also the food at Fancy’s looks SO good!!

  • Reply kristen April 14, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    ew oysters haha. fancy’s sounds fun though! i still need to pick up some of those nuts from target. yum.
    so i’ve had 26 of those american foods – i counted corn dog even though i had one bite and spat it back out haha. and um, excuse me – applie with cheese is on that list. wtf?! some of the things on there (like chocolate dipped ice cream or poppyseed muffins or cheesecake) are things we have at home, so is that cheating? i don’t care lol and WAIT A MINUTE, surf and turf is not american?! wtf. that shit is ours. lol.
