I haven’t written in a few weeks, not because I’ve had nothing to say simply because…life!
Rather than leave this space completely silent, and since I haven’t done a post like this since October — I thought I’d share a few things I’m loving lately, what I’ve been up to and a few awesome articles from around the web.
Let’s start with a good eat! Austin has a new donut place in Sunset Valley, Bougie’s Donuts, and a few weeks ago, a coworker brought in a box of Bougie’s Donuts to share.
I snagged a glazed blueberry donut to taste-test! Delish! Butttt my all-time favorite donut is the classic peanut donut — you know, the donut fully covered in crushed peanuts. I can’t seem to find those anywhere in ATX except at a grocery store. Either way, go check out Bougie’s Insta it’s drool-worthy!
Also obsessing over glittered donuts. I’m co-hosting a baby shower this weekend and these are DEFINITELY on the menu. Donuts by Bougie’s — glitter by me!
And in case you missed it. This donut cake was super fun to make.
Speaking of sparkly, shiny things. This article explains the world’s recent unicorn obsession and the ‘Unicorn Economy.’ Fear not, it’s just a trend.
I’m loving all these viral articles about people paying off student lunch debt at local schools. I just love random acts of kindness.
<3M & I just completed a few recent home improvement projects. After having 8 different gray paint samples on my kitchen wall for a year, I finally chose one — Sherwin Williams Popular Gray. I loved it so much we decided to paint the rest of the house! #somuchpaint
Painting the house led us to upgrade our kitchen table (that we never eat at and is literally there for aesthetic purposes only). I mixed and matched with this Pier 1 table and a few cute chairs from Target — I love how on-trend & affordable Target furniture can be, especially for those pieces you don’t use too often. You can also catch a glimpse of the new gray in the pic above!
A round-up of what everyone in the world is eating, according to Pinterest pins. Of course, Texas is all about avocados.
Obsessing over cows lately and this guy is now a permanent fixture in our dining room, and one of the first things you see when you enter the house. Who ever thought this NY girl would have a cow hanging in her house? Hello, Texas!
This meal is seriously on repeat in our house. Can’t get enough Moroccan Chicken and it’s just so dang easy!
Cheers, friends! Be safe & Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
