Fit for a Friday

Happy almost-weekend! I don’t know about you guys, but this week has been a rough one around here. Perhaps it was the gray clouds and daily rainstorms, or maybe just a mid-month slump, but the days were definitely dragging. Unfortunately my week isn’t quite over – I have a work event on Saturday – but I’m still grateful for the weekend and some downtime with J. Hopefully that downtime also includes some ice cream or fro-yo, just sayin’. Here’s this week’s Fit for a Friday – a compilation of musings, findings, and favorite links I’ve stumbled across in the past week.

This is a great outline of some basics everyone starting out needs to make their first home actually feel like home. Funny story re: Wine Bottle Opener. The one we currently own and love actually came from one of J’s neighbors when he lived in the outskirts of Pittsburgh. We picked up a bottle right after he moved not even thinking about the cork, and he ended up knocking on his neighbor’s door in hopes of borrowing an opener. The lady who answered handed over a very new looking 3-piece set and insisted he keep it because she never drinks. In retrospect, the poor woman was probably just terrified by the strange man at her door. Sidenote – if you actually know J, you know he is pretty much the least intimidating guy around. Just don’t try to steal a fry off his plate.

Brown sugar buttermilk cake? Fluffy white chocolate frosting? Salty macadamia nuts? This cake sounds like perfection. I also love that the presentation actually looks like something I am capable of accomplishing (no triple-layered ombre frosted cakes for this gal.) Now I just need an excuse to make it!White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cake.. A simple brown sugar buttermilk cake with white chocolate frosting, topped with salty Macadamia Nuts!

You’re welcome. ❤

Anything awesome you’ve seen around the web this week? Have a great weekend, friends!
