My best friend came to town from TX this past weekend, and we went on what we thought was going to be a short hike, but ended up being 6 miles. But look at this view!

pink roses

Beautiful pink roses Justin got me for our anniversary last week. They smelled heavenly! (Thank you, Costco)


You may have seen be talk about this cookbook on my Instagram, but I wanted to share it on the blog. Each dish is designed to serve 2, and there’s so many great recipes. My favorite (so far) is the lemon asparagus risotto!

hair towel

I bought this hair towel off Amazon a few weeks ago and I’m here to report it is a game changer. I hate waiting for my hair to dry, and this microfiber towel cuts the drying time in half. Everyone says microfiber is great for liquid absorption, so it would only make sense to create a hair towel out of the same material! Only $21.99


I mentioned wanting to buy this SPF in this post, and I’m happy I finally did. It sits beautifully under my makeup, doesn’t leave nasty white residue, and doubles as a sunscreen + moisturizer. Yes. Please.

Welcome to today’s Friday Favorites! As mentioned above, my dear friend came to visit this past week/weekend and it was so special to have her here. We ran, swam, ate, laughed, and hiked. Finally, human interaction with a friend from out-of-state. I never thought I’d be able to say that a few months ago. While COVID hasn’t lifted for many, Idaho seems nearly normal again and I’m all for it. Justin and I have been getting back into restaurants, shops, and enjoying time with friends and family. How is it where you live right now? Curious minds want to know!

As mentioned a few weeks ago, I began a 7 Week Instagram Challenge with one on of my favorite influencers as the host. I’ve gotten to connect with so many special women from all over the world (no, really) and it’s been incredible to work with people who are doing your same thing. I’m not only growing my blog/brand, but making friends at the same time!

I’ve been DROOLING over this jewelry line, and just placed an order yesterday.

I officially finished listening to this podcast on Tuesday, which coached me to be able to run a 5k (3.1 miles) in 30 minutes. I highly recommend it for anyone who isn’t a runner, but would like to be.
