Happy Friday donut lovers. Are you guys getting the fact that I talk about donuts alot lately? Oddly it's the one thing I think I am craving the most to splurge on post Whole30. Like more than pizza or nachos which is really weird. Maybe this weekend. My kids are off until next Wednesday and I have Monday off, woohoo!! Time to get some shit done around the house. I have no real plans which is the best thing ever on the weekend. I will be working on the home office, catching up on Netflix and possibly having a date or two. And brunch, I think I see brunch in my very near future! But for now, favorites...


So if you are a Whole30 or Paleo eating type you probably eat a shit ton of spaghetti squash. I gave up on trying to crack those things open raw ages ago, opting to bake them whole in the oven and scoop the seeds out later (which is still a great way to go). But then I heard about this method of cooking Spaghetti Squash in the Crock Pot and life was changed forever. Throw one or two in with a little water and walk away for 4-6 hours and that's it. It's a great thing. I did mine over night the other day and it was on for like 8 hours, turned out perfect.

So I have decided on a color for my new home office and the winner is Sherwin Williams Passive. I think it's exactly the gray I was looking for. What do you guys think?

I want to repaint some of the other areas in my house too and I found this palette on Pinterest. I think it's perfection.
I put together a whole-house paint scheme using some neutral grays I love to see how all the colors would look together. Kind of a paint color test drive. I wanted to try it out "virtually" and see how the colors flowed together. So I chose this adorable little house and floor plan...


A couple of weekends ago I did actually purchase my new desk from Ikea and would you believe that I have yet to put it together? On the list for the long weekend but here is basically what I got except with a gray top instead of white. I looove it.


I am dying to try 2 places currently. The Halal Guys just opened a location in Atlanta. Does anyone have one near them? People have been standing in line and I can see why. If I can get some real authentic Falafel I will be the happiest girl ever.

And We Suki Suki for Pho and  Bahn Mi sandwiches. I mean, I'm really dying for this. Pho is healthy right? They also have a sushi burrito... could you die?

I wear my black and white superstars like all of the time. They are super comfy and just look clean and put together, not like you are schlumping around in running shoes. I think these black and gold superstars would be a great addition to my ever growing Adidas collection. Schnazzy...


What are your favorite blogs to read? I have found that my list has grown increasingly small because people just either disappear or sell out and only blog for money. I'd be interested to know who you guys are reading right now! So do tell...


When some random dude sends me an unsolicited picture of his junk and I show one of my married friends.

When the above mentioned random dude asks me if I want him to send me a picture and I say "Sure, OK!!!"

But still, after all this time I get the picture and I am surprised like...

And then  the guy says "I thought that's what you wanted" and I am all...

dog excuse me say what what did you say

And a lot of times they say  "oh sorry but hey, it's pretty awesome right... right?"

And then it's usually "hey so when did you want to go out?"

Happy Weekend!

Linking up with Amanda!


  1. i LOVE that colour for your office. Light/pale grays are my fav for rooms. We have our dining room that colour.

  2. I always want to make spaghetti squash but opt for the microwave - how have I not tried it in the crock pot yet?! Happy weekend girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Ohhhhh that office picture is gorgeous!!!! I have a sample of BM Gray Owl that I was considering for Zoe's room and it is awesome!!! We went with Storm which is a darker gray and is also an amazing shade if you want something a little darker. There was one other color we tried too and I cant remember. But BM kills it with the grays! Love your desk and those shoes!! Pho mmmmmm!!! We got a Pho place in Birmingham last year and it is one of my favorite lunch spots to hit up when I am in the mood for something different.

    I am always looking for new bloggers to follow too. My usuals (other than Kathy and Biana who commented here) are...Alabama Graffiti, Meet at the Barre, Katie Elizabeth, Living on Cloud Nine, Martinis and Bikinis, Green Fashionista, Beautifully Candid, Bourbon Lipstick and Stilettos, Not Entirely Perfect, Jana Says, Life According to Steph, Knits by Gods Hands, The Girl Who Loved to Write, The Wandering Weekenders, Steph the Bookwarm, Love Fun Football, The Italian Family, Dream Big and Buy the Shoes. I am sure there are others but all of these post pretty regularly for me to remember off the top of my head.

  4. SW Passive is gorgeous in this photo!! If it looks like that on the walls (I've been known to struggle with that, lol), you've definitely found the winner!

  5. I love that gray, so pretty! Spaghetti squash in a slow cooker would be a life changer for me! I am definitely going to try that. Have a great long weekend!

    1. Um, I was gonna list you as my favorite blogger. This makes it easy.

  6. I really, really like that desk. Men somehow seem to think that women want d**k pics. Umm, no.
    I've been blogging for almost eight years. I'm amazed at how many other blogs have come and gone. I do blog for monetary purposes but I also have lots of personal posts. It's a mish-mash kinda blog. If you ever want to stop by and check it out, my blog is www(dot)heckofabunch(dot)com

  7. I used to do the spaghetti squash in the crock. Now I do it in the microwave and oven. I just like how it tastes better baked I think?

    Love that desk!

  8. I love gray! Perfect color. Your desk is flippin awesome too. What is wrong with guys online? Like dude, would you just whip your junk out at the bar to show me? No? Ok then...don't show me online either.

  9. I love that color! Also, I totally agree on the blog lists. We just posted a google form to collect blogs that other people love and will be sharing the list soon.
