Friday Favorites 6.9.17

06/09/2017 14 Comments



This week was just one of those weeks. You know the kind where you bit off more than you can chew? I’m sorry I was MIA and didn’t post fresh new content like I wanted to. I’m helping out my family’s business this week and I’ve been watching a friend’s baby. All I’ve wanted to do is come home and take a second and relax before bed. When I say relax, I mean watch the Stately Cup Finals and yell at the TV. Which brings me to my first favorite…

Nashville Predators

Since, I went to a Preds game earlier this year and because I love Nashville and Carrie Underwood, I’ve been glued to every second of this series. Especially, since the Bruins are no longer in it, I’m happy to root for the Preds! Seriously, how cute is Carrie cheering on her man?!

Nashville is always rockin’ but it’s been a whole different level with the Stanley Cup Finals in town. You can feel the energy through the TV, I wish I was there!

Sakonnet Wine

I can’t wait to head to RI next month and stock up on my favorite winery’s latest wines. I opened one of the last bottles from last year to  enjoy while watching the games and PLL. I’m not the biggest red wine drinker. However, this red is sweet without being overly sweet. I’m a big fan of the names Sakonnet comes up with each year.

Eggplant Parm Cups

I was able to catch Good Morning America one morning while watching the baby and saw this easy and yummy looking recipe from the Impatient Foodie. I made her Eggplant Parm Cups yesterday as a quick lunch and they were delicious! Messy, but simple as advertised, which was what I was looking for.

Living Proof Humidity Spray

The weather has been up and down this week and I’ve had to work outside in the rain. When the humidity comes, so does the frizz for me. I bought this Living proof spray last year and thought it held all my baby hairs in check. I hate when hairspray feels too hard and this one is definitely flexible while doing it’s job.


Sun & A Drink in my Hand

I just want this picture from last year to happen at some point this weekend. A sunny day with a refreshing glass of sangria and a deep breath 🙂

Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for sharing that humidity spray – I definitely need to try that myself. My hair + humidity is no good at all!

    Living in Knoxville makes the Preds being in the playoffs so awesome. Carrie is the cutest supporting her husband. But man, late night hockey has me tired.

    Eggplant parm cups look amazing! And perfect for me because my husband and son are allergic to eggplant! I could make those for me and freeze them. Yum.

    I’m from Philly, so obviously I’m rooting for the Preds too, haha! I’ve actually followed hockey since 2000, so it’s still surreal that Mike Fisher is married to a huge star like Carrie Underwood! She’s so cute at the games!
