It's FRI-YAY!  whoo whoo - we made it to the weekend.  For today's post (and in true Friday Favorites fashion), I thought it would be fun to round up "a few of my favorite things"...;).

First up - is this chalkboard wall in my kitchen.  It has my favorite all time - actually my entire family's favorite pancake recipe (modified version obviously;)).  My MIL visited New York a few years ago, and came back with the most amazing cook book, which contained the most amazing pancake recipe in it.  For those of you that are familiar with New York, I am sure you have been there and or heard of them - Clinton Street Baking Co.  One year, I was finally gifted a copy of their cookbook (here is a link to it on Amazon).  However, nothing tops their pancakes.

Madewell - one of my favorite stores to shop at is having a 30% off sale on select items.  Loving this little zip pouch -

West Elm is having an end of the season sale - and I would love to get my hands on two of these babies for my living room -


The latest news on the UK has my browser set on CNN today.

I am still on the hunt for a new pair of tennis shoes.  I wish I was one of those people that bought tennis shoes more often.  I wear them all the time now, and really need to get a new pair that is a little more intact, then the current ones on my feet;).  This pair is still high on my radar - I need to just jump on zappo's and order.

I started re-reading this book again, when a good friend of mine brought it back up to me.  It was good when I read it the first time, but there is a revised and updated version - I love this book; only wish I had more time to actually read a book...who has time for reading these days?!

This was my view yesterday morning of our bathroom - demo finally was able to get completed later yesterday afternoon!  whoohooo!  Those tiles were insane and not easy at all to take off.  We ended up filling 3 of the Bagsters - which also got picked up yesterday evening as well (double score to get those off of our yard in time for the weekend).

Crossing our fingers as each one was lifted.  Worried that we crammed too much weight in one and it would break as it was being lifted into the truck.

I will share more of the bathroom sources as we get closer to finishing and reveal time - but I definitely wanted to share one of them -  This is my first time working with this site, and they have been awesome.  I have been working with a lady named Julie via phone, and she was a huge help.  I told her how I was really wanting the Kohler Purist line, however, did not want to splurge for them in this project as this is most definitely not our 'forever' home.  She knew exactly what I was talking about and instantly had an option that is very similar to that cross handles, but still lots of similarities without the larger price tag;).  **I am editing this post as I have to mention some of the issues we have been having with  I was super impressed with their customer service when I placed my order, however, we are now on faulty part/item #5.  These faulty products have costed us so much extra time and money that I might as well of ordered the original Kohler products I wanted - we would have been even money.  I will share more of the details after the project is complete, but I did want to jump on and edit this comment because unfortunately (I am truly and honestly disappointed) I just can no longer recommend this site.**

Lastly, I saw these awesome shoes the other day when I was at Nordstrom's - are these not the cutest, most comfortable looking shoes ever?!  These weren't my size, but I you can buy them online, and they are on sale.


Happy Friday friends!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend - thank you so much for your support and all of your positive messages about the blog - it really means a lot to me and my family.
