Weekend Favorites: And we have a wedding date!

Weekend favorites: we picked our wedding date! Read all about it + check out my favorite recipes and links from around the web this week.

We returned late Monday night from our little vacation in Arizona and I’ve been busy playing catch up. Not only am I exhausted, but I’ve been chugging kombucha like water and putting turmeric in everything I eat. Super trendy, I know.

Rather than work, my mind is begging me to lay on the couch and watch old episodes of Felicity, just so I can stare at Ben and reminisce about how simple life was back then. Sometimes adulting is hard, ya know?

But seriously, the mini vacation we took WAS AMAZING. I am planning on sharing more next week about where we hiked because it was stunning.

In other very, very exciting news — Tony and I have set a date: 11/17/17


I would invite all of you if I could. We’d have a good time and eat cake and laugh about that time I told you I shoved muffin’s down people’s throats. This isn’t a joke. I actually said that in a post once. I also said that I didn’t like Taylor Swift. Oops?

Anyway, life is moving along at the speed of light and I am so happy to have Abra to help me navigate each day and keep me on track. It’s allowed me to free up some of my time to work on some pretty incredible recipes and other exciting projects (you’ll be able to buy a product from me soon!).

This weekend we’re headed to Tony’s parents to dive into wedding planning full force. WHOO HOO. The only thing I know about my wedding is that I want it to be very non-traditional. I just want it to be a reflection of our love for one another and have really freaking good food. And dessert, obviously. If you have anything cool you’ve done for desserts, let me know — I’d love to hear.

Now, let’s get onto this week’s favorites:

Have you signed up for my Chicago charity workout class yet? Proceeds go to GirlForward, here in Chi! I would love for you to come out and get in a workout with me.

This bohemian wedding is everything.

The cheapest places to fly in the US in April. Get going!

Banana milk? Hmmmm, I don’t know about that.

Veggie sloppy joes made with your favorite trendy ingredient. Seriously though, I can’t wait to make these.

The future could be meatless.

Loving these statement earrings! So pretty for spring/summer.

This one pot spring veggie pasta has me doing a very happy dance. Because… goat cheese!

Train yourself to be less busy. I actually need this.

And shameless plug: Would you guys follow me on Instagram? I want to hit 100k. 🙂 THANK YOU!

Have an amazing weekend, loves! xo.
