Friday Favorites: Keep Cool

Happy Friday, y'all! The weather this week has been quite warm here.  Much too warm for early May!  I'm looking for a nice cool down this weekend.  In the meantime, all this heat has had me thinking about summer.

I am all about a cute, breezy dress during the summer.  And this week I became a teeny bit obsessed with this Mossimo Multicolor Stripe Trapeze Halter Dress .  It looks a little shorter than I personally like, but as this model is probably several inches taller than myself - it might be just right.  I feel it might be worth a trip to Target for a try on.  Sadly, it looks like my local store is already sold out.  ☹

Since I'm already on the topic of dresses, this Red Heirloom Maxi Dress from World Market is another one that I found and became infatuated with.  I love the bold color.  And the longer length of a maxi dress.

During the warmer summer months I like lighter, quick meals.  Spaghetti Squash with Mushrooms and Parmesan by Pickled Plum has quickly become a favorite.  It's gluten free.  Healthy.  And tasty.  In fact. it's so good -  I forgot to take picture before eating all of it! 

Except for waiting for the squash to cook. it's a fast meal.  (and I'm thinking about trying  some options I've seen for either microwaving the squash or cooking it in the crockpot).  Next time I make it, I'll use less thyme and more garlic.  And perhaps toss in some broccoli or green peas.

And then there's this...

The Starbuck's Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino.  Dark chocolate.  Mint.  Imagine someone took a Thin Mint cookie and magically turned it into a yummy cold coffee beverage. Yeh... that.  Yum!

Have a great weekend y'all!!


  1. Hi Beckey!

    What cute dresses!! I really love of my favorite colors, you would look great in it!

    Oh my, I love spaghetti squash! I make it in my electric pressure cooker, but love to just pop it in the microwave on hot days...yum! I'm headed to read the recipe... :0)

    Anything made to taste like a thin mints has to be amazing! I'm not a coffee drinker, but I love, Crio Bru, (it's made with cocoa beans). I'll have to play around with it to see what I can come up with!



  2. Love both of these, didn't know World Market had such cute dresses!
