Eat Drink & Be Mary: F I V E on F R I D A Y


F I V E on F R I D A Y

As you're reading this, I am most likely beach front with my main squeeze and family.  Life is good y'all.  So let's get on with our regularly scheduled's time for five things I'm loving this week.   

ONE || this post
This post by Alex at Always, Al is spot on.  She talks about things that us bloggers do, and I caught myself nodding along to almost everything on her list.  (minus the #hellodarling --what's up with that?).  You've got to admit you've started doing things differently now that you're blogging.  What's one thing you'd add to Alex's list?

this Etsy shop
1. It is so hard to have all this wedding stuff that I can't share with y'all (yet).  So hard.  I just wanna share every little detail I have planned for our big day, but I know the end result will be totally worth it.  

2.  Meeting etsy shop owners like Katelyn, makes it that much more difficult.  Katelyn @ Canvas Creative Shop is simply amazing y'all.  She helped me create a custom logo to go with our invitations and put up with my 3423 questions and was just so so sweet.  I seriously suggest working with her if you're in the need for something wedding or invitation related.  

...and because I can't resist showing you a little preview

THREE || this recipe
I've actually never tasted a macaron (I know right!) but I just imagine they'd be so wonderful.  And how can you go wrong with a nutter butter flavored macaron?  The Domestic Rebel is a genius.

These Nutter Butter Macarons combine the classic all-American cookie with the elegant French macaron in this EASY recipe! You won't believe how simple it is to make authentic macarons at home that taste like Nutter Butters!

Oh Hey, Friday!  5 on FridayThat Friday Blog HopFriday Favorites,  Five things Friday


  1. Those macaroons look amazing!! I kept wanting to try making some and those might just be the motivation. Have a great weekend!

  2. On the edge of my seat for more wedding details girl!!!! And those I've heard they're so hard to make by hand too, so majorly impressive culinary skills right there!! I know you already know this, but you HAVE to try them!!!!!

  3. Hope you are having an awesome weekend! Enjoy the relaxation and break from wedding planning :)

  4. Macarons are soo good. My fiance got me a macaron making kit for Christmas and I've yet to use it because you need lots of fancy ingredients...and I feel like it's looots of work. Enjoy the beach!

  5. WOAH WOAH WOAH you've never had a macaroni!? omg what. i'm so sad for you!

  6. Hahaha, this comment cracks me up for so many reasons. I know it's kinda crazy I haven't tried one yet, but I don't know where to get one. Also, the fact that (I'm assuming) your phone autocorrected to macaroni is just too funny. Maybe this summer I'll get the chance to try one.

  7. I seriously need to find a bakery that sells them. I've just never found one, so I haven't tried them. I have wanted to try making them myself but I've heard it's a LOT of work too. Have a great weekend Mattie.

  8. Yes, to all the relaxing and beachin'. I can't wait for Thomas to get here tonight. It'll be a great little break from reality. I hope you have a good holiday weekend Kelsey.

  9. Thanks love. I hope you have a good weekend as well.

  10. I wish I could dish out so many details its killing me. But I know that waiting until it's all put together will be so worth it..not to mention I don't wanna spoil it for those that'll get to come.

    I've heard macarons are hard to make as well, but I really want to try it out. Although I should probably taste one first, haha. Hopefully sometime this summer I'll find a bakery that sells them.

  11. So incredibly hard, it's killing me. BUT I know it'll be worth it in the end. Plus only two more months!!

  12. If you do you'll have to let me know how it turns out. They look amazing and I can't imagine they taste anything less than heavenly.

  13. NEVER TASTED A MACARON!!! They are heaven on earth

  14. I need that weekender bag! I've been looking for one like that for FOREVER. It's now bookmarked on my computer haha

  15. I know it's crazy. I'll have to put it on the to-do list for this summer. I've only heard good things about them.

  16. Girl, get it! It's the best price I've found by $20, and I love mine.

  17. Ah I'll have to send some your way. (;


It makes me so happy each time you leave a comment. I love connecting with my readers! Happy blogging friends.
