A Few of My Favorite Things 5/17/14

Happy Saturday my friends! I hope all of the Moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine was quiet. Kevin brought me home some gorgeous roses, a card, and a bottle of my favorite red wine. Then he made me breakfast before he had to hit the sack (working nights is a pain).

I was pretty resigned to the rest of the day being just me and my pup when my daughter and her girlfriend showed up to surprise me. It worked! I was so surprised, and very happy.

The weather was gorgeous, so we sat on the back deck and chatted. Nice to just hang with the girls for a while.

Then relaxed and watched a movie before Kevin was up again to get ready for work.

The rest of this past week has been AWESOME! The weather? Oh just the 70's and 80's, no big deal. Who am I kidding? That is huge for this time of year. We spent two whole days outside just soaking it all up!

But do not fear, even with all of my lounging about, I found some pretty terrific stuff for you all to check out. So let's get to it shall we?

My Favorite E-book
This week it wasn't about food, DIY, or any kind of improvement. It was just about entertainment, and when it comes to entertaining books you have GOT to check out the Hunger Games Trilogy. I seriously could not put them down! Fantastic books!!

My Favorite App/Website
Fooducate for iPhone and Android. Scan foods to see what the contain. Eating gluten free? Have food allergies? This will tell you if the food is safe to eat.

Trying to eat healthier? Scan the product and it is automatically graded (A-, B+, C, etc...) by a scientific algorithm based on its nutrition facts and ingredient list. Fooducate recommends minimally processed, real foods, that are naturally rich in nutrients and antioxidants.

My Favorite Food
Eggs Benedict with Bacon, Avodaise (Avocado Hollandaise) and Harissa
No-Churn Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
One Pot Wonder Chicken Lo Mein

Classy Black

My Favorite Gardening Ideas

Well, that's it for this week. Hope you have a fantabulous weekend <3
