So, if any of you noticed. I missed the Friday Favorites last week. We had family in town for the weekend, and I didn’t have time to prep it ahead of time. Excuse I know, but it was already pretty late in the day on Friday before I really realized it was Friday.
Anyway… We did have a great weekend. My in-laws are pretty avid golfers, so we made a point to head to the Phoenix Open last Friday. While I really can’t tell you too much about golf myself, it was a fun day. If nothing else, it was a beautiful day to spend outside! The rest of the weekend was spent golfing ourselves, catching the Super Bowl on Sunday, and of course, stuffing ourselves on Super Bowl appetizers :)
No big plans for the weekend here. I’ve had a couple of days off during the week this week as I’m working this weekend. My first weekend by myself at the new job, so fingers crossed for me! Since I missed last week, I have a little bit longer Friday Favorites for you this week. Enjoy!
Favorite Home Design Idea. Stone Kitchen Island by The Butler Blog. I really like stone and brick inside as a design element, and this absolutely makes sense to avoid any scuff marks from the benches along the island. Definitely an idea I will keep in mind for any future home projects!
Favorite Valentine’s Breakfast Idea. Whole Wheat Cranberry Applesauce Muffins by Eating Richly. I love that these incorporate the Valentine’s theme without all the sweetness found in most. I don’t have heart shaped tins, although I may have to try out that marble trick to make a heart shaped muffin.
Favorite Funny. The United States of America as Seen by a New Yorker as seen on sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net. Who knows if this is even real, but it definitely has some comedic value.
Favorite Potluck Idea. DIY Wood Chalkboard Clips by Happy Clippings. Clip it on your dish at a potluck to let everyone know what it is. Why didn’t I think of this?
Favorite Wine Accessory. Wine glass seen on Etched Expressions (Etsy). Hilarious!
Favorite Valentine’s Lunch. Heart apples by Demilked.com. My husband takes an apple everyday for lunch. Think I can get away with this?
Favorite Salad. Tequila Lime Flank Steak Fajita Salad with Chile Lime Vinaigrette by How Sweet It Is. Longest salad name ever, but oh my gosh it looks amazing!
Favorite Motivation on fitsugar.com. This is definitely true. Running is my stress relief!
