Random Stuff - Friday Favorites

Friday, May 22, 2015

Honor those who died this Memorial Day at these inspiring memorials.

Happy Friday everybody! It's been a weird week for me for sure. Some bad news, some unsettling events and maybe possibly Mercury in retrograde have me out of sorts but.... it's the weekend and a long one at that. This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day and remember those brave Americans that have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in our country's armed forces. I plan on doing the most American things possible... cookouts, quality time with friends and family, maybe the pool and certainly some beers! But first some favorites with Amanda who I think is honeymooning half way around the world...


I am a huge fan of Rihanna and this couldn't be more perfect for this post. Very cool imagery, take a look and a listen...


Paleo Berry Cream Bars from one of my favorite paleo blogs and cook book authors, Juli Bauer from PaleOMG. Vegan, dairy free, grain free... and how pretty are they? Perfect for the holiday!



Ok so unless you don't follow basketball its NBA playoff time and my hometown team is in it to win it. Well, actually they are down a game but who cares, we've got time. Here is my current favorite player Pero Antic... whom I know nothing about but I just like him. Big surprise...

Aaaaaand... FSU has a new QB and that's him on the left. Everett Golson of ND announced on Tuesday that he would transfer to FSU to play his 5th year of eligibility. I think it's so weird since he's already graduated but definitely good news for us. We need an experienced QB! Welcome...


It's pool time and I found the perfect coverup... been looking for something in lace... love this one. Find it here. Bonus, with a little more under it, and my suit is a lot more, it could be a cute little dress too.

I have a case of wide mouth mason jars in my pantry and my deck needs some summer ambiance. Cue a fun project for the kids this weekend. Rice, food coloring and tea lights... BOOM.
