FRIDAY FAVORITES...LET'S GO

Wow am I ever glad to see you Friday! It has been a whirlwind of a week and so glad to have nipped this ear infection in the bud. Off to a friend's house for an in-house clothing sale today and some mimosas. Chill time, here we come! 
  
 1. Time Spent Near the Water 
While we live surround by a river, pond and pool, there is just something so calming about a lake. We have some dear friends who live on a lake about 20 miles north of us in Michigan and we finally got a picture-perfect lake day last Saturday. Their property is adjacent to a golf course, so our guys got to golf while we went on a walk and chilled on the pier. 
The day ended with the perfect grilled chicken, roasted vegetables and margherita salad meal. I was so excited about the salad I didn’t even wait until she got the artichoke hearts and toasted pinenuts on it to snap a picture, I replicated the salad for you all for an upcoming Tasty Tuesday. This amazing dressing is from Meijer and you can use it as a marinade as well. And I was with my friend Jenn when she got this yummy salami at World Market. It was the perfect little snack to add to the snack plates to take our guys on hole number 11. 

2. Maren Morris's Dress
Sunday night was the ACM awards and I always love the performances and Reba McEntire hosting! I have got to say, this lilac dress from Maren Morris, blew me away! As you know, I am obsessed with this color!

NEW Drink
Oh am I a happy girl with energy to spare, lol. This drink fills you up and tastes delicious. I do a Venti triple espresso with ice. 2 decaf espresso shots and 1 regular. Then just pour in the caramel Premier Protein Drink. Delicious hack from my friend LISA via a mutual friend, Kim. Thank you ladies!


Have a High Protein, Fun Filled Weekend Babes!!

  3. How cute is that one shoulder polka dot dress?! I have yet to try Premier Protein shakes as I use the powdered whey protein mix from Gold Standard. I am a coffee lover and will need to try this energy filling drink! Enjoy your weekend Andrea and happy Friday!
