Friday Favorites - 8/1

Our cat Bella is such a Daddy's girl. But last weekend, after Aaron had been gone for three days, she must have decided that I was an acceptable snuggling companion.

Every morning I put this in my coffee:

And yes, every time I sing "I'm so fancy....."

This week saw the long-awaited opening of The Market Italian Village in our neighborhood. I went on Monday during the soft open, and again Thursday for the grand opening. I haven't counted the steps yet, but they're so close that when our windows are open, I can smell the coffee.

Last night I hosted the neighborhood ladies for Yahtzee night. Our group this month was small but mighty. I provided the finest in cheap boxed wine, meats and cheeses from the aforementioned Market, take-n-bake pizzas from zpizza (and yes, I baked them) and a blackberry lemon trifle (check back next week for the recipe).

Have a fantastic weekend!


  1. Love the flop coasters. The trifle looks delightful! I'd love to be smelling the coffee from there.

  2. I want to have a Yahtzee night, it sounds fun.

    I love the flip flops for the wine glasses!

  3. Looking forward to that recipe!

  4. Oh my gosh, an Italian market within walking distance. So jealous. I'm in the process of convincing Steve that we need to move to the city. I'm sloooowly breaking him.
    Matzo Ball is the same way, only snuggles if Steve is gone for awhile. Our cats are bitches!!
    Fantastic night you hosted! YATZEE! The coasters are kick ass!

  5. That market is within walking distance? I am so jealous!!!

  6. Jealous you have a market you can walk to! Bella is super cute :]
