Friday Favorites: lots of cricut love!

Happy Friday! I have 2 weeks left of summer vacation and I am just soaking up every minute of sunshine that I can!! Here are the best things that happened this week...

1. One of my very best friends celebrated her birthday way back in June! I was so late getting a present to her but I was so excited to give her a MudLove bracelet!! Part of MudLove's website allows you to buy a product and make a donation to a cause with your purchase! I loved being able to support a family in the process of adopting while also getting a wonderful gift for a friend! You can shop all things MudLove HERE.
2. A couple of weeks ago, I shared my family's favorite recipe as of late... Butter Chickpeas!! It's a healthier take on the traditional Butter Chicken and it is so delicious! We have eaten it weekly for the past 4 or 5 weeks because we just can't get enough!! I love that this recipe is gluten free and vegan! You can find the recipe HERE.

3. I have gushed about my cricut before, and my next two favorites are really just me professing my love for my cricut once again! This weekend, my family is going to a family reunion for my Dad's side of the family and I made t-shirts for my family and my uncle's family! Getting eight shirts together is no joke, but they look so good! I'll try to rally everyone together and get a picture this weekend!

4. More cricut love!! I am so excited about this project!! I spotted this quote recently on Pinterest and I knew it would make the most perfect beach bag! So I got to work in my cricut design space and ordered this beach bag from The Tote Bag Factory! I can hardly wait to put it all together - I will be sure to take a picture!

5. I painted my nails yesterday - I was so sad to take my nail polish from the beach off my toes but they were definitely needing a little spruce up! I have Lady Like on my fingers and Lapiz of Luxury on my toes. They both look a little more purple in real life and I am loving the way they look together!

  1. Ah, love that quote! I bet that project turns out so cute. I love my Cricut too but haven't been able to pull it out lately. Gotta get better at that. Those chickpeas look amazing as well. I definitely want to try that recipe at some point.

    1. Thank you, Alex! I go through phases where I use my cricut daily and then sometimes I leave it untouched for weeks! It isn't always easy to get to! I hope you get to try the butter chickpeas - they make such a delicious meal! I hope you're having a fabulous Friday! :)
