Friday Favorites

It’s Friday!! I’m super glad the weekend is here because tomorrow I am going to a winery with some of my favorite people to prune and stomp grapes and enjoy some wine!

Here are some things making me smile this week, I hope you had a good week too!

1. Nut & Seed Lara Bars 


These Lara Bar’s are INSANE! They are so, so, so good. I’ve found them at Kroger and Target and they make the perfect snack. I enjoyed this one last Saturday mid-hike with Barrett. They also feature some top-notch ingredients: almonds, sprouted chia seeds, and maple syrup.

2. Russian Braised Cabbage (Natasha’s Kitchen)


My sweetest friend told me about this amazing cabbage recipe she eats and I asked her to send it to me so I could make it for my family Thursday night. The recipe is linked above but I added spinach, mushrooms, and used organic pork kielbasa. You should make this because it is AMAZING! It takes less than 10 minutes to throw together and we just left it simmering on the stove to let the juices marinate together until we were ready to eat about an hour later.

3. Quiet and rainy mornings


This morning I woke up around 5:30 to get some reading in for school while I sipped my coffee. I loved listening to the rain and easing into my day.

4. Mountain earrings from my greatest love


At the top of our hike on Saturday, Barrett told me he had a surprise for me. We found a quiet spot to sit down and he told me to close my eyes. He pulled out these adorable earrings and told me he wanted me to have something to remember the beauty we experienced in the mountains that weekend. I LOVE that kid. He is the most thoughtful human being. I was originally going to keep this moment between just him and I but I had to share with you because I have been wearing these earrings everyday since and people keep asking me about them. ❤

That’s all I have this week! I hope you have an amazing weekend. Enjoy the cooler weather!
