Friday Favorites: my Blog is Two!

This weeks favorites are full of a little bit of everything - my bloggaversary, a delicious recipe, Starbucks, Lobster (ick! Actually not a favorite!), and music! I have to say, it was so easy to find favorites this week because my week was so good! As usual, I'm linking up with several other bloggers to share all of my faves. Let's get started!

1. First of all - my blog is two!! What!? How did that happen? I celebrated by chalking in my driveway! Ha! I'm not totally kidding! I chalked a big number two in the driveway and snapped some fun pictures! I also threw up a peace sign, which I don't think I've ever done before! But really, it was supposed to be a number two, and when I looked back at the pictures I realized it looked like a peace sign and I totally cringed! I posted all about two years of blogging yesterday, you can read it HERE.
2. Did you catch this fun recipe!? I experimented with making Jordan Marsh's traditional blueberry muffins gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free and guess what they worked out so well! We had quite a distance to drive last weekend and they made the best snack to have on the road!
3. Another great road trip treat - my favorite strawberry acai refresher with coconut milk! I know I've bragged on the pink drink before but it so lives up to the hype! I love it, but the Bean prefers the violet drink! She orders a berry hibiscus refresher with coconut milk.

4. Let me preface this by saying that I love my job - I love the flexibility, I love my boss, I love the location (I really do love it all!) but over the weekend they hosted a big lobster festival and the whole place still reeks of lobster! I don't eat any seafood or fish so I am not taking the smell very well! My boss was laughing so hard at me yesterday when I was walking around looking for a lobster carcass. I could have sworn there were lobsters hidden in the corners! When I got in the car after work, the smell was clinging to my clothes - ugh! I raced home to hop in the shower and change asap!

 5. When I'm blogging, I always listen to music. You may have noticed from my Music for Monday posts that I listen to a lot of music. I have a pretty wide variety of music that I listen to. When I have my headphones in; there really is no telling what's playing - it could be Drake, it could be a song from Wicked, it could be an old Taylor Swift song and the list goes on! So, what was I listening to as I was writing this post, you ask? I listened to 'This is What Dreams are Made of' by Hilary Duff on repeat. Yes, you read that right. I had an old Hilary Duff song on repeat and I loved every minute of it!

***I'm Linking up with Katie from Cup of Tea, Della from Della Devoted, Tif from Bright on a Budget and Becky from byBMG for High Five for Friday, Andrea from Momfessionals, Narci from Grace and Love blog and Erika from A Little Bit of Everything for Friday Favorites, April from Smidge of This and Christina from Carolina Charm for Five on Friday and Amanda from Meet at the Barre for Friday Favorites.
