Friday Favorites

Happy Friday everyone! 

I found out that I'm heading back to San Francisco for work in March. You can read about my work trip earlier this year here and then touring San Fran here. This time I'm hoping to find some time to head over to Napa Valley as I'm already out there. I'm currently trying to recruit a friend to join me so I don't have to tour wine country by myself. 

I happened to visit the bridge on a rarely clear day and got this amazing photo (our tour guide said there are only a few days in the year the bridge isn't foggy). After touring around, San Francisco quickly won my heart and I can't wait to go back to explore some places I didn't get to see.

Yesterday, myself and several coworkers volunteered at Feeding Children Everywhere, which is an organization that assembles healthy meals for hungry children throughout the world. We packaged and boxed our goal of 10,000 meals to be distributed worldwide. 

This week's healthy dinner meal plan was successful after a few weeks of hiccups: 

Monday: Skinny chicken fajitas
Tuesday: Pork chops and brussel sprouts
Wednesday: Baked salmon and broccoli
Thursday: Tossed salad with chicken

Joining the lovely Amanda for Friday Favorites.

The Ultimate Bloody Mary via Honestly Yumm ... or as I like to call it, a Vodka Salad!

Possibly? He rocks the kid pretty good.

I'm convinced I'm allergic to tickles.

Definitely reminds me of my granny from childhood days. Ice cream with chocolate chips was her signature treat!

True story, especially when it's cold and no one is seeing your legs anyways!

Have a great weekend loves!

  6. I absolutely love San Francisco! It is one of my favorite places in the world. So excited for you that you get to go back! I have done something similar to feeding children everywhere called feed my starving children. Also, I love that Speechless lace dress! So great for a holiday party. Have a great weekend!

  7. That bridge shot is gorgeous! I love that you are feeding hungry children, I have a ministry that I donate to regularly for food but I haven't gone to actually prep and hand out food.

    The bloody mary is a meal in itself - I haven't seen one with crab in it! I want that dress for holiday parties, it is beautiful.

  8. haha! so true about the shaved legs--- your meal plan looks amazing! San Fran is on my must see list for sure! Have a great weekend

  9. Yay for San Fran again!! And wine country is a must do this time around! Even if you can't recruit anyone to go with you, join one of those tours that leaves daily from San Fran and go yourself and check out some wineries and go on tastings. There are limos and party buses that leave daily ;-)

  10. Yeah for your trip, that will be fun to get to see what you didn't on the last trip. So awesome you volunteered it is much needed and I am sure they will appreciate it. Can he look any hotter with the baby on his hip?!

  11. Yay! I love San Francisco! I am obsessed with the Chinese food there! If you havent tried it you have to head into Chinatown and check it out! So so so good!

  12. I would love to visit San Francisco! Great picture!

  13. Lace dresses are perfect for holiday parties, I have a red one I just got that I can't wait to wear!

  14. Your meals sound delish!! We need to get back into healthy eating hard core. And that picture is amazing!! California is one of the 2 states I've never been to.

  15. So jealous of your San Fran trip! It's one of my favorite places I've been to, and I hope to take my boyfriend on one of our America trips! And I totally agree with the leg shaving - it's like you can take on the day with silky smooth legs!

  16. That is SUCH a great dress, and I'm totally jealous of your SF trip! I've only been there twice and would love to go back for a longer I'm sure Napa will be amazing!

  17. Ahhh jealous of San Fran trip. I was briefly in LA both to and from Australia and I just love Cali. And yes that dude is rocking that baby well (heart eyes emoji)
