Friday Favorites #78: Week of 2/27

Happy Friday! How was your week? Mine was all over the place, but in a good way.

I don’t have much planned for the weekend, but I’m kind of excited about that. It’s been a while since I could just hang and enjoy wherever the days take me.

Before I get rambling, let’s dive right into this week’s edition of Friday Favorites. Don’t forget to share some things you have been loving this week too by linking up and commenting below!

Friday Favorites #78: Week of 2/27

Friday Favorite Link Up Botton Life In Leggings


• infinity scarves

I have been loving infinity scarves since last Spring. I purchased a handful of them from zulily as Mother’s Day gifts last year, and couldn’t help but to include two more for myself in the order.

Every now and then, I’ll click over and see what kind of scarves are on sale. There’s always a ton of cute ones! These are pretty lightweight, so I don’t wear them throughout the year. I do, however, live in them when I’m traveling.


• Nana’s family recipes

I inherited a very special gift while I was visiting family this week.

For as long as I can remember, my Nana always prepared the best cookies, desserts, and dishes. She sadly passed away in 2010, but her memory has been talked about and cherished by many.

My mother, aunts, and I spent an afternoon at my grandfather’s place this week, and I felt very honored that they wanted to give me her box of recipes. Inside, I found a mix of original, clipped, and passed down family recipes, most of which are handwritten.

I plan to take time to really go through them this year. I’d love to re-create some of my favorites and figure out a way to share the recipes with the rest of my family. <3


• The Pampered Chef Spoon Rest

Along with the recipes, I also took home this Pampered Chef spoon rest. I already had one that I hand painted for our stove, but this one means a lot more to me. It seems to fit right in.

You can find similar ones here, here, and here.


How To Get Away With Murder

Do you remember when I featured #TGIT a couple of weeks ago?

Since then, I have been curious about How To Get Away With Murder and finally gave it a chance on my plane ride down to Florida. I watched two episodes back to back and didn’t want the plane to land until I could watch more. It’s so good!


Can we just acknowledge last night’s two-hour season finale for a second? Ummm….???

If you are a fan of Scandal, you’re going to looove this show. Give it a chance!


• Girl Scout Cookies

I know I’m not alone with an obsession with Girl Scout Cookies. What’s your favorite box?

My number one pick will without a doubt be Thin Mints.

Always Thin Mints. Preferably frozen.

• seeing family, friends, and sunshine in Florida

I was so happy to get the chance to escape the winter and spend some quality time with my family and childhood friends in Florida earlier this week. Check out the highlights!

• Orlando pet snuggles

Along with my trip home came a couple of days worth of long overdue pet snuggles. This handsome Siamese kitty named Boss was actually my cat after college. I adopted him from a close friend in Tampa and decided to let him stay at my parents’ when I moved into a condo.

He has access to an outside porch there, so I felt bad taking him away from the beautiful world of the outdoors. I can’t wait to love on him every time I visit!

Magic, on the other hand, came after I left home. He’s a two-year-old Picardy Shepherd (Berger Picard) that gets bigger and bigger every time I see him!

Magic dog

The breed is known to be hyper as puppies, and he has calmed down a lot since my last visit. This was the first time he actually let me snuggle and pet him. He’s a sweetie!

Thinking Out Loud #7

salad with eggs and cottage cheese

Good afternoon! I hope you’re having a great one. Mine is jammin’, thanks to the awesome #ThrowbackThursday playlist I’m listening to. I’m sorry… 2gether? I totally forgot about that “band”. The fact that I used know every single word to this song is hilarious. Or how about this one? Why. That’s just all different levels of ridiculous….

Another Winter Workout Playlist

winter 2015 running workout playlist 2

Hello from warm and sunny Orlando, Florida! Despite what the amazing ambiance around me suggests, it still is technically winter around here. After living in Michigan for three winter seasons now, I almost forgot what it feels like to a lot of (lucky) people living south of us around this time of year. In my home city,…

Skinny Pizza Pasta Casserole

Good afternoon! It looks like today is all about that cheese, my friends. I hope you enjoyed reading about new gluten free pizza options this morning. If are one who easily drools over your computer screen whenever anything having to do with pizza appears, you’re not alone. My intentions were not to tease, and I have an incredibly easy and delicious…
