Friday Round Up


Happy Friday!

Another week in the books, and I am one week closer to my wedding! Just 5 weeks to go. Here are some of the things that caught my eye this week:

Anne over at FANNEtastic Food has this recipe for Watermelon Rosemary Popsicles that I must try. (We registered for this cute popsicle mold!)

Gina of SkinnyTaste had my mouth watering with her Blackened Chicken Fiesta salad.

And Closet Cooking’s Greek Foil Lemon Roasted Potatoes is something that would be perfect for a summer dinner party.

Did someone say pizza? No? Well, flatbread is the next best thing, especially when we’re talking burrata. Love and Olive Oil has a great plum & burrata flatbread recipe.

One of the things I have loved about getting ready for the wedding is finding fun dresses to wear for various occasions (bachelorette party, shower, rehearsal dinner, wedding!) If I were doing it all over again, and had unlimited funds, I think this dress would be on my list.

It’s getting cooler here in D.C, which is a relief to the running side of me. I have been living in this dress from Taylor Stitch lately. It’s a wool/linen blend.  The cut is perfect for an athletic gal like me. I always get compliments on it.

Buzzfeed gets a lot of flak for its listicles, but how could I say no to 20 Highly Rated Face Masks You Can Buy on Amazon?

I love the tutorials on A Beautiful Mess. They have one for achieving the perfect bold brow that I really want to try.

I dream of having space for a desk. (We just don’t in our tiny 550 sq ft apartment.) Someday I’ll be able to put these Ikea hacks to use.

I love calendars. We have a wall calendar on our fridge. Poppytalk has a roundup of lovely calendars for 2017.

Do you struggle like me to find birthday presents for certain folks on your list? Apartment Therapy has a helpful list that I am bookmarking for future use.

Nerd Fitness had a Nerd’s Guide to Anxiety – which speaks to me now that I am working nights. Sleeping during the day = more anxiety for me. But knowledge is power, right?

This piece on what it’s like to finish second to last in the Olympic Marathon was amazing. Sarah is a teammate and a glass ceiling shatterer. Total Lady Hero!
