Friday Favorites: Golden Skies

#1: Pretty Sunsets
I looked into my backyard on Tuesday night and the sky was glowing with different shades of yellow and orange. I found out there was a double rainbow that evening in Central Florida and I must have been very close to the pot of gold. This picture doesn't really do justice for how crazy/beautiful the sky looked (iPhone camera).

#2: Healthy Dinners
We're pretty good at making healthy dinners all week at home and then treating ourselves on the weekends to eating out. One of my favorite dinners is baked pesto salmon which is actually a recipe K made up and it's super delicious. The pesto gives the salmon so much flavor and it goes great with asparagus or broccoli. I posted the recipe here several months ago.

#3: Bows
I don't how it happened exactly but all of a sudden I'm slightly obsessed with bows. Bow earrings, bow hair clips & accessories, Kate Spade bow sandals and my latest purchase: this bow white top.

#4: Three-Buck-Chuck
I cracked open my $2.99 bottle of Pinot Grigio from Trader Joe's and had a few glasses this week. Not too bad for the price.

#5: Steals & Deals
Don't forget to check out Nordstrom's Fall 2014 sale starting today until Aug 4th. Amanda from Meet @ the Barre posted a complete preview of the sale here earlier this week. I'm hoping to snag a couple pretty items before the stocks run out.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  4. that sunset is gorgeous, and i need that top asap.

  5. That sunset is beautiful! And now I want to go to Trader Joe's to pick up my own wine... all the Orlando peeps have been talking about it so much, I need my own bottle now! Have a great weekend!

  6. My bf made fun of me when I bought a shirt with a big bow on it...loser! lol
    I love the big bows.

  7. Pesto gives anything such a good taste, I love adding it to my dishes. Also, that white shirt is SO freaking cute. I love the bow and I want it! Who is the shirt by?

  8. That sky is amazing!!! PS. I think I'm the only person in the Central Florida area that hasn't checked out Trader Joe's yet. I definitely need to get on that 3 buck chuck. I'm failing at life.

  9. That sunset is so pretty! I really want wine now. Hmm. Love the bow top!

  10. I'm loving everything here! Summer sunsets, sales, good food & wine... I'm in! :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  11. I wish there was a Trader Joes closeby to where I'm at. I keep hearing good things about their cheap wine and for some reason I really want to try it. Also, I'm totally crushing on bow embellishments as well!

  12. That sunset was amazing the other day! I took pictures with my actual camera and I need to see how they turned out! I still need to check out Trader Joe's. I'm worried it's going to be crazy busy when I decide to go LOL! Have a great weekend!

  13. I was pretty surprised at the wine! Not too bad for 3 bucks a bottle!

  14. Super cute bow top. I ordered leggings from Nordstrom's sale, I'm going back and forth on another top.

    Amazing sky! I love catching a gorgeous sunset.

    I am demanding that we get back on the healthy dinner train during the week at least. Summer has made me lazy and we've gotten away from it. Not good.

  15. that dinner looks healthy but also delicious!
