Hello, hello, and happy Friday!
While I’ve been traveling between lobster mac ‘n cheese (this is my fave recipe) and all the sea urchin I could devour in Santa Barbara, and then coming home to the hospital salad bar back home, my husband has been doing a bang up job keeping the home fires burning, and working on the home itself.
If you’ve been a follower of Friday Faves for very long, you know I love to share the home tours and remodeling links. Probably because home remodeling never seems to end so I’m always getting inspired myself.
We “finished” our 4th buy-the-worst-house-on-the-block-and-make-it-awesome remodel 12 year ago—it’s our dream house and the inspiration for my first, now-expired blog to document the process so we didn’t mind dumping a little extra money into it for the finer finishes.
Now, all these years later, we are finally getting around to finishing up all those finishing details we’ve ignored since our initial guts to glory major endeavor. As will happen, what started out as simply replacing the cheap carpet we initially installed downstairs, has led to another round of revamps.
I saw “we” are doing the work where in reality it’s all my man. He’s a jack of all trades. And dreaming, and designing and remodeling is one of our favorite past times. I say dreaming because we are dreaming of the day when it is all finally done and done.
And then, as things typically go, we’ll probably find our next dream house and start all over again.
But until then, if ever, let’s dig into this week’s list of Friday Faves. Enjoy!
The Emmy Awards are Monday night. Proof that everyone starts somewhere –> Emmy nominees then and now.
I’ve been loving this book. It’s dog eared and underlined and inspirational in just the right, easy and quick to read doses.
If you were a kid of the 90’s you won’t want to forget these.
You know those conveyor belt sushi joints? Now they have them with cake!
Homemade apple sauce for apple season DIY-ers.
And the taste-testers say…The best-tasting supermarket brand coffee.
Winner, winner, easy clean up dinner –> Honey mustard chicken in one pan.
This chicken and chip dish is totally made for snacking.
Let’s go veg-heavy, with:
- This veggie main would be awesome in the Instant Pot.
- This vegetarian bowl would be awesome meal prep.
- This roasted butternut squash with a Mediterranean flair.
Just the right number for those emergency biscuit and gravy cravings.
If you haven’t cooked chicken this way, it’s time to do so.
My friend Susie is a tarot card expert. Here’s how a beginner like me could get started.
Stained glass hair. Yep, it’s a thing.
Instead of her usual Kerastase, my sister is raving about this for her hair. She said it makes her hair super soft but still gives her body and volume.
Time to stock back up on my under eye concealer. These late nights are not nice.
The detail on this top is tops.
This shirt says all the right things.
