WooHoo! It's Friday!! It's Mother's Day weekend. And the weather is fabulous right now in New York. Which leads me to my first Friday fave...
Now that is what I consider a magnificent forecast. If I have my way, I will be sitting on the beach on Sunday as the forecast has now changed to sunny and 84! And I should have my way. Afterall, it is Mother's Day.
This right here is my new favorite breakfast...
Light multigrain English muffin, spread with a little bit of peanut butter and topped with fresh sliced strawberries and a drizzle of honey! I am not a breakfast food fan. I know. The horror! I usually have toast with some peanut butter and maybe a half of a sliced banana. But my friend suggested a different fruit and then add the honey It takes it to another level. She was right!
Since we are talking about food, my next fave is dinner from this week. I made sausage and kale pasta bake and it was over the top! The original recipe is from Gimme Some Oven. I changed, added and adapted it to suit my tastes. My version will be coming soon to the blog.
One of my most favorite things to do is to buy spring/summer clothes. I hardly ever buy winter clothes. I can't remember the last time I bought a sweater that wasn't a cardigan or wrap. But, all bets are off when the stores start with the warmer styles. These two pieces I picked up at Forever21. I love them!!!
And last but not least, is what am I reading now. I am always striving to be better. I want to learn to be better at being thankful for my gifts and blessings. I also want people to think of me as kind and gracious. But, I have my good days and my bad days. I am a work in progress. I guess we all are to some degree. I went to my local Christian bookstore to pick up 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp and right next to it was this book...Becoming a Woman of Grace. I do not believe in coincidence so I picked it up as well. I am enjoying both immensely If you haven't read 1000 Gifts, its a must read. I had people tell me it changed their lives! I have to agree!
And there you have my Friday Faves this week.
