A friend is someone who accepts your past, supports your present and encourages your future.
It’s so nice to see friends on the weekend! On Saturday, my friend Mel invited me to attend a charity event benefitting children in need. It warmed my heart to see so many people helping to make a difference in these their lives. I’m so grateful for friends who inspire me to be a better person. I also found a lot of inspiration in this week’s edition of Sally’s Pins:
White Frame Wall: Black frames used to always be my go-to choice, but I am starting to really love the look of white frames. It is an easy way to brighten up a space.
Lemon Crinkle Cookie: These cookies won a top award, which translates to they are probably as addicting as crack. I’m hoping one batch will last me through the week.
DIY Scratch Off Valentine Cards: Scratch tickets that don’t break the bank sound perfect to me. How cute is this idea!
5 Tips for a Better Self Portrait: I am the worst at taking self portraits. I really need a new one for profile picture, so I will be looking to this guide for help.
Polka Dot Sweater: I might have a slight obsession with polka dots. Not sure if pregnant women should cover their body in spots, but I really want to!
Grey Office: I first fell in love with a kitchen with grey cabinets, and now I’m obsessed with this office. I must figure out a grey color scheme in my house or else my newly remodeled kitchen is in trouble.
Tomato, Basil and Cheddar Soup: I may or may not have eaten at Jason’s Deli twice this week and ordered the Tomato Basil Soup. The addition of cheddar to this version might send it to the top of my favorite’s list.
Make-Up Dupes: I have always been a lip gloss kind of girl, but I feel the need to make the transition to lipstick. I love that I can test out this new look with cheaper versions of the department store brands.
Elegant Bedroom: The mirrors, the chandelier, and the paint color have me drooling over this room right now. I love how the light reflects in the mirrors to make the room seem bigger.
Top 5 Freezer Meals: This is my next Sunday project. How nice will it be to heat something homemade up the next time I don’t feel like cooking.
Hidden Coffee Station: I try to minimize the amount of appliances I leave on my kitchen counter, but the coffee machine does have a spot. I would die to have a nice little setup like this though.
Lazy 4-Layer Deep Dish Pizza Dip and Flatbread: Can you imagine how good this would be with a warm, fluffy pita? It is like the ultimate breadstick sauce!
Newborn Photo Shoot Ideas: This idea is so helpful with 27 different options for the perfect portrait. Since babies are so sleepy in the first few weeks, you could easily try out most of these shots.
Stripes Paired with Solids: Two of my favorite things put together, striped shirts and brightly colored shorts. This photo kind of makes me sad to see the summer coming to an end.
Pastel Neon Peach Nail Polish: I just love, love, love this nail polish color! It really pops as a manicure.
What is your favorite nail polish color?
