Friday Favorites #50 yall!!
I am so thrilled this week is over, because this weekend we are…. going back to Ikea!! Why you can’t order Ikea products online and have them delivered I’ll never know, but it just means another trip down to Sydney for Ben and I and more shopping for the new apartment. This time next week I’ll be blogging from there.. not excited at all… ha!
I have been slightly obsessed with planning for our new place this week, and Ikea hacking, so my Friday Favorites includes some traditional things you see each week and a few DIY and decorating ideas for the new place.. oh, and one idea for mom, Happy Mothers Day!!
Favorite Show: House of Cards
I never understood what all the hype was surrounding House of Cards until we got Netflix in Australia and we started watching. We’re almost finished with season 1 and we can’t stop watching.
Favorite Funny: Spacey vs. Macey
Because little Macey was so cute last week, and Kevin Spacey is the lead on House of Cards I just had to include this funny. Want to have even more fun with this video… you try to guess the answers to these presidential questions.
Favorite Etsy Find: Hey Y’all Welcome Mat
I found this welcome mat last weekend and turned to Ben to ask him if he would totally hate me if I purchased this for our new place, his response after chuckling, “Every I’d look at that I would smile and think of you. It’s you.” Looks like this one is sold!
Mothers Day Treat: Savory Sausage and Cheddar Bread Pudding
One breakfast that always reminds me of my mom is bread pudding. When I was a kid one of the first experiments I did without her help in the kitchen was a bread pudding… but not knowing what half the ingredients were called and not being able to find certain things turned my currant bread pudding into a lemon chocolate chip bread pudding.. don’t ask, just know it was delicious!!
When I was home last month mom made me a delicious egg and sausage bake, and this Savory Sausage and Cheddar Bread Pudding from Once Upon a Chef makes me feel like it’s a little combo of both those breakfasts.
Mom, just know if I was in America this weekend, this would be your breakfast… along with a Perfect Mimosa!
Happy Mothers Day!!
How are you celebrating your mom this weekend?
And if you are a mom, what’s your favorite way to spend the day?
By the way, totally throwing the blog for a loop today and publishing a recipe post as well!! Normally recipes go live on Thursday’s but this one is just so good that I had to put the final touches on it to really show it in all it’s glory!!
that, and I am allergic to something in my house and it makes my eyes super scratchy and tough to sit at a computer to edit photos for a long period of time. 🙂
