Happy Friday Friends!

I can’t wait to share my favorites from this week with you since there is so much going on…let’s get to it!

One Year Blogiversary

I celebrated my 1st year blogging this week and as a thank you for following along with me I’m hosting a giveaway! You can enter here. I’m giving away gift cards to my two favorite places to shop and a little travel essential surprise to each winner 🙂

New Earrings

From J.Crew Merchantile but similar here.

I bought both these pairs of earring this week and I can’t wait to wear them on my trip this weekend! I’ve been meaning to buy the ear crawler style for awhile now and I finally found one I like at a good price 🙂

 

 New Recipes

I’ve been trying to make a recipe a week from my Pinterest board: Recipes and this week in order to celebrate National Margarita Day I made this Mexicana Margarita.

 

Margaritas are my drink of choice so I had to celebrate 😉

I’ve also been meaning to try this meal prep idea from the beloved and addicting Tasty Videos.

On Monday morning I cooked up the ground turkey, vegetables and rice and ate one meal for lunch that day. I packed up the next three and put them in the fridge for the rest of the week. The recipe was pretty good, especially because I can eat Mexican food every day. I also loved not having to think about what to eat for lunch and that I could take them with me when I was working away from home. I plan to do this once a month at least for the convince, the money saving and for the healthy foods.

Big Little Lies

Ok so I didn’t read the book and I know it’s a favorite among blogging circles, but I am hooked after one episode of the new series on HBO. Did anyone catch the first episode this week?! Now I have to know who killed who. The cast is pretty good and Reese Witherspoon is too funny in this role.

What’s Up Wednesday

In case you missed all my musings about what’s going on in my life lately you can find my What’s Up Wednesday post here.

I’m so excited to be on my way to New Orleans for Mardi Gras this morning 🙂 🙂

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

    Oh girl you need to read the book – it’s SOOOO good!! I watched the first episode too and I was interested to see who they cast in what roles!! I have to say Nicole Kidman wouldn’t have been my pick! Loving your new earrings & I hope you have a great weekend! xo, Biana

      I think it’s going to be good, if not then I’ll keep watching for the beautiful scenery of Monterey, CA!

    Happy blogiversary!! Both pairs of earrings are really pretty. I have a pair of ear jackets, and they’re a fun option to have in the ol’ jewelry box!
