Friday Favorites #26

Hi friends,

What a week. I still feel behind after spending Monday and Tuesday on peanut farms in Georgia. I can’t wait to share more about the trip with you but here are some other weekly highlights.

Our kitchen!

It’s so nice to have our kitchen back! It feels so much more open and airy now. Next I would love to tackle white counter tops, but one thing at a time. I am in love with the white cabinets. And having to empty them is making us reorganize carefully.

Library card

I have lived under a rock for the past few years since moving back to Charlotte after grad school. I finally got a library card. To say I’m excited is an understatement. I already put 5 books on hold I’ve been wanting to read. My wallet will be happy too, since I won’t be paying Amazon every time I want a new book.


If anyone else struggles with breakouts, this has been really helpful for me. I purchased it last week after the PA I work with (who used to specialize in skin care) told me about it. You can use it as a face wash or body wash. So far, it’s been helping!

Lunch with blogger friends

Sara and I grabbed lunch at last Saturday at the Pickled Peach (If anyone lives near the Charlotte/Davidson area, you need to go!) It’s adorable and they have a quaint outside patio. I went with the falafel salad but couldn’t resist adding the oatmeal ice cream sandwich on. It was so good, and I’ll definitely be back for more.

Sara is a friend I’ve met through blogging who also lives in Charlotte. She’s someone I now call a good friend, so thank you blogging world!

The Trouble with Food Policing in Schools – I’m seeing more and more research about the devastating consequences of parents dictating and over-policing what children are eating. I’m sure it’s a difficult topic and transition. I’ve heard great things about this book for raising normal, healthy eaters.

What to do after food sensitivity testing – This is not something I do with clients. But, I think it’s helpful to know about it if you have done testing or are considering it!

  1. The library is my second home! I also love that I can order books online and they have them ready to go for me when I go pick them up. Our library holds community events and is a great place for people of all ages. I need to return my books today, thanks for reminding me 🙂

    My weekend has some biking, working and Planet Earth watching haha

  2. Ah libraries! A re-discovery I made just this year! They are the best places, and have so much to offer. I can’t believe I don’t make more use of the ones near me. But keep hoping to!

    Your kitchen looks pheNOMinal.

  3. The kitchen looks great! My hubby and I are in the process of revamping ours as well – I’m wanting a light grey bottom cabinet and white uppers! Plus, new hardware 🙂

  4. My college library and local library back home are two of my happy places. Glad you got to spend time with a blogger friend. How cool is it that we get to meet new friends just by blogging and reading other blogs! Also, thanks for sharing the pumpkin sticky bun recipe. It’ll be saved to make when I go home for my break. Hope your weekend is lovely!

  5. I LOVE your kitchen! The white looks so fresh!!

    I have always had a library card since I’ve lived in Charlotte. Rich makes fun of me for it 🙂 One of my favorite things to do is to walk to the library. Do you have an e-reader? You can download books from the library, too!
