Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 🤓
Can it be Tuesday already?!? Because I spent some time in the kitchen testing recipes this weekend and oooooomigosh I can’t wait to start sharing them with you. I might actually have to break my posting schedule and post tomorrow instead because the wait is killing me. We’ll see!
So how are you guys doing? How’s your weekend? Mine’s felt oddly like a weekday 🤔 But it literally just hit me that I’m leaving for Vegas in three days (!!!!), and I had to take care of a bunch of stuff before I left so I’ve been running errands and trying to get ahead with work… that and binge watching the Olympics.
You too?! What’s your favourite sport? I like swimming and running, but I adore watching the gymnastics. Like… how do they even do that?!? Gah! I can’t even imagine how much strength that must take.
Anywho! If you can tear yourself away from the TV today, check out some of these links I loved this past week. And have an awesome Sunday!
