Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday! Today we are beyond lucky to hear from my littlest sister, Abby! See below for her latest favorites:

So since January is the month of resolutions and goal setting, I’ve decided for this Friday Favorites post I’ll share with you some of my goals for the year and products that will help me achieve them!

First of all, this year I really want to get back into having quiet times and journaling. One of my best friends, Hannah, shared with me this amazing website called May Designs where you can customize journals. You design everything from the outside canvas to the pages inside and the best part is they have tons of options! I, of course, am indecisive so ordered a blank one as well as a meal planning journal to help me with my next goal!

Goal 2 for the year is to really start meal planning on Sunday night so I can make multiple dishes throughout the week that aren’t the same but share common ingredients. One thing I’m really excited about making is this healthy Eggplant Rollatini recipe.

Our sister, Laura, is taking on the daunting task of the Paleo Whole 30 challenge right now and has introduced me to tons of delicious, healthy recipes found in this book Well Fed. Even though I’d rather wear underwear on my head for a year than give up cheese for 30 days, the book is still full of delicious recipes like this Paleo PadThai I had last night (I switched the broccoli in this recipe for sugar snap peas)! I’m a huge starch person so one thing I’m loving about the Paleo lifestyle is they teach you healthier starch substitutes without compromising flavor.

Finally, I’m a huge craft nut and have been going crazy post Christmas season trying to figure out something to make or do until its time for Valentine’s Day decorating. I feel like Christmas my craft list was on overload and now I can’t think of anything. When in doubt, however, a good wine cork craft is always in season. I recently finished this tray I made from corks from my parents house. I bought it at a Total Wine Store but if you don’t have the privilege of living in the greatest city in America here is where you can find one on the Internet.

Since I’m all about having a Friday song to get me through the workday, here is a wonderful cover of The Beatles song, “With A Little Help From My Friends” done by one of my favorite groups, Mumford & Sons.

Enjoy and Happy Friday!

Abby
