Surprisingly this week FLEW past! Last weekend was very busy with my brother’s birthday so this weekend I am happy to not have any plans. We may go out to dinner tonight with some friends but other than that it is a weekend of relaxation. Next Wednesday Luke & I will be going to the Matchbox Twenty/Counting Crows concert and I am so excited!! I was OBSESSED with MB20 back in high school and after looking at their setlist for this concert it is going to be so nostalgic. I can’t wait!! I hope you enjoy this week’s favorites…
Favorite Yum: There isn’t a more diverse and yummy food than tacos. There are so many options but my favorite are fish/shrimp tacos with a nice sauce and delicious slaw. These Beer-Battered Shrimp Tacos look crazy good! You can also substitute the shrimp for a white fish for some variety.
Favorite Gift: Under Lucky Stars is a website where you create a beautiful, unique star map of the alignment of the stars above you at that significant moment in your life: the day you and your significant other met, your wedding day, the birth of your children, etc! You can get them in a variety of colors and two different sizes.
Favorite Game: Most people have played beer pong at least once in their life. I am not great at it but always have so much fun when I play. Well what may be better than beer pong? Prosecco Pong! I mean how fancy is this:
Favorite DIY: Luke wakes up at 3:15 am for work so he has to go to bed fairly early. That means I stay out in the living room to do my reading. From time to time I will go to bed and read with a reading light but I always find it uncomfortable and the light never bright enough. I saw this DIY Reading Lamp Headboard and I love it! So perfect!
Favorite Sweet Treat: I am always seeing monkey bread recipes online and while they look absolutely delicious I have never actually tried one. I am not sure why because they seem right up my alley. I think I need to change that and make this Cinnabon Monkey Bread. Sinful!
