Casual Friday

Let’s hang out this morning, in our casual Friday jeans. Which for me, would actually be considered fancy Friday.

I may have been seen by my neighbor in pajama bottoms at 1pm yesterday. I should really get my act together. I’m almost 31! But my thought is, why dirty more clothes if I don’t need to dirty more clothes?

Now that you’re giving me the I don’t trust her anymore side-eye, let’s move on.


I recently picked up a freelance gig over at Craftsy and my first two posts are now live. The content I’ll be creating for them will be very similar to what you find over here. I’ll be sure to keep you updated on Facebook and here when new posts are live [about once a week]. Just don’t blame me when you get stuck exploring Craftsy for hours.

Quick & Easy Asparagus Recipes For Spring


Do you love pancakes?

And Tres Leches Cake?

Then these Coconut Tres Leches Pancakes are a MUST for your Cinco de Mayo brunch party. You’ve got a killer stack of gluten-free pancakes, smothered in leches…tres of them.


Dakota wanted to show off her new spring look. She’s hoping it distracts you from her greying face. Actually it’s now turning to white.


flowers =  happy

Especially flower arrangements that include vegetables [kale to the left + baby artichokes].

Can I have this incredible salad bar delivered to my house for lunch for the rest of my life? Earthbound Farm sponsored last Saturday’s lunch at The Big Traveling Potluck and oh man did I go to town. EBF was also kind enough to send me on the trip! They are pretty much the best.

And then there was an ICE CREAM bar. Five different flavors. In matching KitchenAid stand mixers.

Ice cream is my weakness.

friends: “Ooooh, what flavor did you try!?”

me: “ALL FIVE [duh]”

And then I won a KitchenAid stand mixer!! Ummm, hello…this is the person who never wins things, so I nearly fell over when they called my name. I’m pretty sure I won because I stuffed my cup with all five flavors.

And now for a few things I’ve enjoyed around the interwebs this week:

These Roasted Strawberry Rhubarb Parfaits. Ummm, high priority this weekend.

The movie trailer for Fed Up, which kind of left me speechless but also excited that this information is becoming more main stream. It also reminds me of why I’m doing what I’m doing.

This is pretty much the most amazing take on cinnamon rolls I have ever seen in my entire life.

Have you seen Bev’s twins? Of course you’ve seen Bev’s twins. Her photos pretty much kill me

A strawberry smoothie lava flow!!!

Biggest girl crush ever. <3 Emma Stone <3

For all you ketchup addicts [me, me, me].

My two favorite breads were just melded together in one beautiful recipe and I’m just like…no words. Damn you gluten.

The two prettiest drinks I’ve seen all week.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and get to enjoy some sunshine!
