Weekend Favorites: Taking a break + establishing priorities



Welcome to weekend favorites! Finally we are back in action on the regular.

And so let’s just talk it out like we normally do here.

At first I was excited that June was going to be pretty relaxed, but it’s been more hectic than I could have imagined. Mostly because I think I have too many recipe ideas and become obsessed with sharing all of them with you. MY BAD. But look, I spent some significant time digging through your survey responses and trying to understand what you guys were really looking for, plus I was curious myself.

Turns out many of you have virtually no time to create meals, you love my desserts (and I love them too), and you like healthy snacks. Oh and many of you want more vegetarian recipes.

I’m cool with all of the above. Also, mac and cheese is probably your favorite comfort food. Sorry we couldn’t agree on that one, as you probably know how much I love my enchiladas.

Taking a little break

Anyway, I’ve decided to take a step back a little come July. I need to get better at 1) prioritizing, 2) focusing my time on things I really want to be doing outside of blogging 3) planning my wedding 4) enjoying the Chicago summer 5) LIVING LIFE

I really just want everything to slow down a little. I’m not sure if it’s everything that’s happening in my life, or if it’s because of social media and the access to endless information all day every day, but lately life has been going by too quickly. I feel like every day I blink and it’s already 6pm and thus it seems like I’m missing out on some of my favorite summer activities like happy hours, bike rides by the lake and discovering the endless cool places in Chicago. So I vow to do just that.

Don’t worry though, I’ll still be blogging, just a little less than I normally do or perhaps more about life in general (outside of my life that is food).

Anyway, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s head to all the good stuff I’ve been into lately:

Love this ingredient spotlight on asparagus

OMG this black polka dot dress is adorable.

May we please have a convo about this strawberry cobbler? I’m gonna dump in on my face.

Been searching for something yellow for so long and currently in love with this romper.
