Friday Favorites (September 28, 2018)

It’s Friday (the last one in September, nonetheless), and that always makes for a great day. I’m so glad the weekend is on the (very near) horizon, and Kevin, Maggie, and I are excited for my parents to come visit for a few days, starting on Sunday afternoon. Yay!

This week has been a busy one, and I don’t have many favorites to share, but did want to pass along a handful of things I’ve been loving lately (especially since I haven’t posted a Friday Favorites recently — oops!):

  • A friend asked me to make a vegan white cake with vanilla icing for her dairy-intolerant niece’s first birthday, and I was flattered (and, of course, jump at any opportunity to try a new recipe!). I have a favorite vegan (and gluten-free) chocolate cake recipe, but hadn’t yet made a white cake before. I tested out a couple of recipes to make sure I landed on an exceptionally tasty one, and this one was the clear winner. I know I’ll be making this recipe again and again!


  • Apparently I’m 15 again, because I’ve bought a couple of dresses from Abercrombie recently and LOVE them. (Update: They no longer slap their logo on EVERY piece of clothing, and I am loving many of their styles!) This off-the-shoulder dress is the latest one I’ve added to my collection, and it’s adorable. (Oh, and right now it’s on clearance for just $24. Whoa!


  • If you’ve been reading my Friday Favorites for a while, you’ve no doubt heard me mention my love for all things Rifle Paper Co. (I especially adore their phone cases!) Anyway, they just announced a Chatbooks partnership, and I am OBSESSED. They’re an easy (and beautiful) way to document your family’s life through photos, and are great for those of us who can be bad about getting photos printed.


What’s on the agenda for your weekend? Hope it’s shaping up to be a great one!
