Eat Drink & Be Mary: On my mind lately...


On my mind lately...

Another Friday is here--yipee, *throws confetti*.  Just kidding, cause then I'd have to pick it up and that'd be a pain in the you know what.  But I am so glad it's Friday because that means my best friend came to town yesterday.  I've missed her so and can't wait to see her smart-lawyer-student-self.  So while I'm catching up with my favorite chick, here are five things on my mind lately for all friends that I'm crazy about but have never met (funny how that works aye?)...

ONE -- This.
So true....
Can I get an AMEN?!  I absolutely love accomplishing something that I pinned on Pinterest, mainly because 90% of the things I pin "to do later" never get a second look.  I just know I can't be the only one.  This button would come in handy for two of the recipes under "#3" and for the recipe I'm sharing this Tuesday...stay tuned loves.  Wanting a virtual applause for something you've completed from Pinterest?  Leave a link to it below and I'll check it out, complete with virtual confetti & appalause ;)

TWO -- Ghost of Boyfriends Past
Sharing some of my dating stories has been my favorite post yet.  Looking back to how I got to where I am today, makes me wanna bang my head against the wall & happy all at the same time.  Anyone else ever felt like that?  It also brings to mind two songs...

THREE -- My Recipe Magic
I was featured on My Recipe Magic x3,  how cool is that?  I'm ecstatic!! (exclamation points all around) And to top it off, three times!! Check it out & (my personal favorite part) find out the nutritional facts of my recipes.  My recipes were featured here, here and here

FOUR -- Boutique Love.
Two boutiques I have been obsessing over recently are Flourish Boutique and White Plum Boutique.  They both have the trendiest items, that I would gladly accept into my closet any day of the week.  And lucky me, this past week an item from each boutique showed up there.  I am so excited to share two pieces that will be a go-to for me all spring and summer.  But for now I'll just leave you with this sneak peek.  Come back Tuesday & Wednesday for the entire posts on these amazing boutiques.  I'm bursting at the seems to show y'all...eek!  Believe me you don't wanna miss this (hint hint).

FIVE -- Spalfredo Pasta
Did you catch my twist on the two classic pasta dishes?  The two yummy sauces combined (spa+lfredo) make an even more delicious dish.  A wonderfully easy dish to make any night of the week to mix it up from the usual spaghetti and alfredo.

Thanks to all of you that participated in the giveaway I had this past week, the winner will be posted Monday, stay tuned :)  Cheers my loves!  I hope your weekend is full of sunshine & laughter.  And no more snow, pretty please!!

ps. I'd like to welcome Miss Rhea to the bottom of my posts, stop by and tell her hello!

  4. Your "*throws confetti* just kidding, cause then I'd have to pick it up" totally cracked me up - LOL!

  9. MONKEY BREAD! So good! I actually tried to make it back in the fall and I accidentally used the wrong size pan-- you can imagine how big of a disaster that was! haha But I've been meaning to make it again ever since and your recipe looks amazing! Have so much fun with your friend in town to visit! Happy weekend!

  10. Yay for THREE features on My Recipe Magic- you go girl!!! You bet I'll be back on Tuesday and Wednesday :)

  11. Congratulations on getting featured!! That is SO awesome!!

  12. I made a "DID THIS" board on Pinterest. A button would be WAY easier!
