Happy Friday friends and hola from viva la Mexico!
When my friend Krista asked me to join her on a yoga retreat I looked at my empty calendar and said, “ABSOLUTELY!” That was 5 months ago, and did I mention my calendar was clear?
As the months flew by, and then the weeks did too, my days got numbered and I wondered what in the hell am I doing going on a yoga retreat? Because:
A. My work schedule is suddenly the fullest its been all year long.
B. My husband planned a trip at the same time I did, so let’s do the dance of figuring out who and where Smudge and the dogs will be farmed out to.
C. I’m far more sporty than yogi-flexible. I mean, I can touch my toes, but lets not get too far afield from there.
And that is exactly why I needed to go to this retreat. To clear my brain, loosen my chains and find my flexibility. The sound of the ocean and the sea breeze on my face is certainly going to help me do that. And I’ve decided…if I can’t hold the tree pose or do one more downward dog, it just means there’s more chips and salsa with a side of margaritas for me.
But enough about me, let’s dig into this week’s Friday Faves!
This apple tart is almost too stunning to eat (allllmost).
And speaking of apples, this caramel apple sheet cake has my full attention…
As well as this apple crumb cake (good morning to me!)
And since I had to go ahead and mention cake…
These creative cakes are blowing. my mind! Especially “The Big Eater.”
Love these photos of Julia Child’s kitchen — if only it came with smell-o-vision!
To further my outer flexibility, I’m signing up for this to further my inner growth. Hello Miss O!

Recipes I Pinned This Week
Fall is in the air and here are three comfort food recipes I’ve pinned this week, that I totally think you should pin as well.
Curry Lemongrass Chicken Noodle Bowl
I could curl up to a big, piping bowl of this cozy deliciousness every night this season!
Gruyere Mac and Cheese with Caramelized Onions
You had me at gruyere…and mac and cheese…and caramelized onions. Yep, pretty sure this is what mac and cheese was always meant to be.
Sausage and Butternut Squash Slab Pie
This savory pie is reason enough for this summer gal to be excited it’s fall.
