Friday Favorites 8.5.16

Happy Friday Friends! I can’t believe it’s already here again…this summer needs to slow down! Here are my Friday favorites this week:

The Lumineer’s and Belgium Themed Food

The Lumineers

Last Saturday night I ventured into the middle of corn fields, ok that’s not where the concert was held but it was in the middle of no where haha to the Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown, NY for The Lumineers concert. I can’t wait to go back and experience the brewery for an afternoon of beer tasting since I tried their amazing cider at the concert. The forecast called for rain so I was ready to go with my wellies and rain jacket, but it did make eating delicious german food harder. They had a few choices of sausage you could order and I went with the sweet Italian sausage and a side of potato salad. They were both delicious!  I highly recommend stopping by their brewery/cafe if you are in the Cooperstown area.

Saratoga Race Track

Saratoga Rack Track // Cupcake N Dreams // Friday Favorites

Keeping with the Upstate New York theme, I went to my first day this season at the Saratoga Race Track. The track is such a fun tradition to have right in your backyard every summer, I love getting dressed up and placing small bets to root for the horses. I usually bet based on numbers and their names and cross my fingers on .10 superfectas. The real beauty of the track is the people watching, all the women in their fancy dresses and the men dressed up as well. It wouldn’t be summer with out a few track days 🙂 Side note: I won nothing last week when I went, here’s to winning this weekend!

The Bachelorette

The Bachelorette

Our time with JoJo has come to an end, where am I going to find new outfits to fawn over each Monday night?! If you are a fan of the franchise and have never read blogger Sheaffertoldmeto’s recaps, do yourself a favorite and read them, they are hilarious! I don’t have much to say other than I hope her and Jordan work out. I never liked him or Robby through out the season and I truly hope Chase is the next Bachelor but I’m willing to watch Luke as well.

 

Essie Nail Polish

A new week a new favorite nail color! I love picking a new nail color each week, especially in the summer because I love my brights. However this purple was a nice, muted color that I feel works for every season. I’m a huge fan of the Essie brand and usually I pick which one to wear based on their names! This one is Lapiz of Luxury.

 

Nashville

In case you missed my Nashville posts from earlier this week, they were a big favorite 🙂 My Ultimate Guide to a Weekend in Nashville and my Dessert First: Nashville edition.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend 🙂

    How fun was that concert?! And I agree about Chase for Bachelor, yet everyone seems to be going crazy over Luke. I think he’d be boring a la Chris the Farmer, but we’ll see! Happy Friday <3

      The Lumineers were amazing! I loved that concert so much. I agree with you that a season with Luke could borderline Farmer Chris’s season. Thanks for stopping by Kate 🙂

    That’s so interesting that your Lapiz of Luxury is so purple–I just used it myself and mine was definitely more blue! Huh! And the Bachelorette finale was so anticlimactic that I had already forgotten about it, haha oops. Hope you’re having a good weekend!

      Hmmm blue? I would say it definitely came out lighter on the purple side but I don’t know why. I only did two coats. I do agree with you that the Bachelorette was anticlimactic, it does seem we know who they are going to choose every time now. I hope you had a great weekend 🙂
