Favorites From My Week.

You know what's not fun? When you're phones start freaking out telling you to take cover because you're under a tornado warning, but it's nowhere near you. Not cool weather phone app people, not cool. 

We have a new nephew! Our brother and sister-in-law had their baby Wednesday. They didn't find out the sex, so it was so exciting to finally find out. Can't wait to meet the little guy, hopefully we can make a trip next weekend. 

Breakfast
I tried overnight oats for the first time. I used a recipe from Julie over at Peanut Butter Fingers, she has tons!  It was delicious. We used vanilla Greek yogurt and I topped it with fresh fruit and crushed almonds the next day, very filling.

Shoes
3 new pair of shoes entered my life. My work gave me birthday money, I used it all on shoes. Isn't that what you're supposed to do with birthday money?? I bought these cognac sandals from Target. Then, after seeing Tara share these Leopard Sperry Sandals I kind of freaked over them. I found them on sale at Dillard's and clicked buy! Then, Kristal gave me these sparkly sandals I've been waiting on Target to restock in my size forever!!  I'd say it was a good week. 

BBQ Chicken
Grilling at it's finest. Dustin can cook some mean bbq chicken, that along with roasted sweet potatoes and asparagus just might be my favorite meal ever. Also, anyone tried the Coors Light Summer Brew? I like it, goes great with some bbq on a hot night! 

Yearly Planner
My view from Starbucks last night. Kristal and I met up to have a drink and talk about our She Reads Truth readings from the week. We started Titus this week, so far I'm loving it. We missed you Kim! 

I hope you have a GREAT weekend. Monday is a special day for my little blog here, so I may or may not be doing a fun little giveaway. Ok, I am. 

What was the highlight of your week?

  12. Congrats on your new nephew! So exciting :)
    I LOVE beer - I didn't even know Coors made a summer brew (though I'm not really a big summer beer fan, I like the darker, heavier stuff or a nice IPA).
    Those shoes are FABULOUS - I had no idea Sperry made shoes like that! Great post, girl.
    The highlight of my week is always happy hour with my best friend at our favorite local bar. It's just a great time with good people :)
