Friday Favorites

by Lauren on December 23, 2011

I’m not sure who to credit for being the originator of this idea, but I always look forward to seeing my girl Kristin post about her favorite superlatives every Friday.  I love the idea and I love her so I’m stealing it for the time being.

Favorite Song of Late: 

I love me some John Legend and I only really listen to Mariah during Christmas.  Such a cute song and it makes me smile every time I hear it.


Favorite Holiday Memory: 

Today would have been my Grandpa’s birthday.  (I can’t remember what year this would have been for him but I want to say 87??) We would usually celebrate Christmas and his birthday with them on the 23rd.  RIP Grandpa!  <3

Favorite “Awwww” Moment: 


Just precious!

Favorite Words to Live By:


Favorite Look:


I’ve rocked the long dress short, blouse, heel look in the past and it’s one of my favorites.  I’m also digging the messy loose curls this girl is wearing.  Professional yet chic.

Favorite Salad This Week:

Arugula, Cabbage, Grapefruit, Avocado, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Pan Seared Salmon, Honey Goat Cheese 

Favorite DYI Project: 


Lights in wine bottles.  Simple but so clever.

Favorite Bite: 


Chocolate covered frozen banana bites.  How adorable!

    I had to tell you – we JUST got Chobani in Canada, at 65 grocery stores, and I made a road trip on Thursday night to stock up! Your breakfasts convinced me it was definitely worth the drive, and they are officially my favourite Greek yogurt. I got the strawberry, peach, pomegranate, and black cherry.

    My favourite Christmas music this week has been Michael Buble’s Christmas album! Reminds me of Bing Crosby and the old greats. Merry Christmas Eve!!

  5. My mom has one of those wine bottles with Christmas lights. Although she didn’t DIY, I think it was purchased at a craft fair. Either way, it’s a nice, classy decoration!

    Merry Christmas Lauren!
