Five on Friday {July 24, 2015}

TGIF! This has been a particularly fun-filled week, as T and I have been getting more and more settled into our new apartment and neighborhood. The week kicked off with the second annual Pop Star Palooza (post with full party details coming soon), and now it's closing with another costume party since I'll be attending a Roaring 20s birthday celebration tomorrow night. The coming week shows no signs of slowing down since T and I will be jetting off to Atlanta towards the end of the week - if anyone has any must-do Atlanta activities or restaurant recommendations, please send them my way! As we kick off the weekend, here's a look back at some of my favorite posts from the past week:

 
Favorite recipes

I've been trying to focus on cooking more and sticking to a weekly meal plan, so I love all of the recipe inspiration that I've discovered through other blogs! Some favorites from the week include these ranch cheddar chicken thighs pictured above by Turquoise and Teale, a shaved brussel sprout salad with crispy prosciutto by Champagne & Suburbs, and Caprese garlic bread by The New Mrs.


Favorite party

Few things make me happier than a theme party with lots of cute details, so this raindrop baby sprinkle featured at Reasons to Come Home definitely made me smile. I especially love the fabric banner and the cloud-shaped cupcake toppers!


Favorite purchase

I've recently discovered that I have a pineapple print addiction (please, send help), so as much as I tried to resist the Nordstrom sale, I couldn't hold off any longer once I saw this pineapple shirt over at Peaches in a Pod!


Favorite cocktail

I'm loving this Blackberry Mint Ginger Fizz by Grey is the New Black - such a great flavor combo, and you just can't beat a refreshing, fizzy cocktail in this summer heat!


Favorite nail polish

This pineapple cup/confetti nails combo from Ricky's appeared on our Instagram earlier this week (if you're not following us yet, check out our feed!). The nail polish is called Coney's Sprinkle Cones, which is perfect since it definitely makes us want to stroll a boardwalk which licking some vanilla soft-serve, topped with a generous heaping of rainbow sprinkles!

Wishing a very happy weekend to y'all (see, this Yankee is practicing for Atlanta!).


Cheers to April, AmandaJennieKarliClare, Rebecca, Katie, Heather, Farrah, Leanne, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!

  18. Glad y'all are getting more and more settled! Loved the pineapple cup when I saw your pic recently; too cute (and the reason I never wavered in my argument you aren't too old for a sippy cup hah). Brussels Sprouts salads - even with just Ranch - are always a win! Happy weekend, gals!

  23. So much cuteness - and there is never too much pineapple.
    That drink sounds AWESOME - I definitely need to try this one out. Those recipes also sound awesome - I did that ranch cheddar, but with chicken breasts instead of thighs - I can't speak to it, but Anthony was a big fan!
