Friday Favorites {5.4.18}

Hey hey it’s Friday! And this weekend it’s Cinco de Mayo so what could be better than an excuse to eat tacos and drink margs? We’re having friends over for dinner and I’m praying the weather is magical. Here are some fun/interesting things around the web that I’m currently loving. I hope that wherever you are, your weekend plans are just as magical.

Since it’s Cinco de Mayo I thought I’d share two of my favorite recipes. These margaritas and these barbacoa tacos are helping me live my best life.

Just in case you were wondering: Do hats cause baldness?

What??? They are banning sunscreen in Hawaii!

Memphis, TN (our hometown) made the list, amoungst other spots, of top places to visit in May!

We have been watching Planet Earth on Netflix with the kids- my daughter asks 1.5 million questions about all the animals. She also narrates the entire show. (now the monkey is climbing, oh wait, now he is jumping- hehe).

Also, I cannot stop watching Narcos. Can’t stop! I was mildly obsessed with Pablo Escobar’s life before the show, but now I can’t stop googling him. (No one else googles moderate to extreme psycho killers and kidnappers when they can’t sleep? Just me then?)

I’m also reading this book.

Memphis debuted it’s first food hall a few months ago. Do you have one in your hometown? Think Eataly in New York. Here are a few new ones that opened over the last few years- 17 Most Anticipated Food Halls.

A food hall is “a far cry from the suburban shopping mall food courts that hit their stride in the 1970s and are now falling into decline, these multi-faceted, typically indoor markets showcasing a variety of local food vendors and artisans have long been a tradition in Europe — and they’re finally hitting it big in America.”– Eater online magazine.

 

I had my first nutella cookie this week- honestly I don’t know how life was worth living before that moment. Here’s a fun nutella cookie recipe I’ll be trying.

And here’s a little bit of life lately that I shared earlier this week.

Have a lovely weekend.
