Friday Finds


Whoop-whoop! It’s FRIDAY! Congrats on making it to the weekend. 🙂 Hopefully y’all have something either exciting or relaxing planned for the next couple days. We are taking the relaxing route this weekend and sticking around the house for some football and game day food.

If you, too, are planning on a laid back weekend, here are few links I found this week. The fall and winter are full of so many birthdays in our families, and then Christmas is so quick to follow that Friday Finds seems to lean towards a gift guide. Although it’s not on purpose, hopefully it’s helpful. Enjoy!

I think these little lip scrubs would be a great stocking stuffer.

This store is definitely on the pricier side of things, but this belt is so pretty. . .and it’s on sale! 🙂

Floral Filigree Tooled Belt

Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown. This is definitely my favorite workout of the week. It was harder than I anticipated, and moved at a fast pace. Great workout if your feeling fatigued and sore or just need something new.

I love this travel kit. Personally, I think it could be for guys or gals, either way it’s beautiful and unique.

Ok, this pie pan would be super dangerous around here. I never make pie, because that’s a lot of sweet for two people. But this little guy serves two. This gives me reason for at least one pie a week. 🙂

Pie for Two, White Plate

I reeeeealy want one of these apple peelers. Considering the apple orchards are so close to us, I think this would come in handy. Especially if I had a pie plate for two like the one above. 😉

I think my dad and D would both like this Vintage Tabletop Scrabble game. It’s be cool to have for obvious purposes, but it’s so beautiful, too.

If you’re a hopeless romantic and have half an hour to burn, this video is pretty cool. It’s a little unrealistic for most budgets, but sweet nonetheless.

I think this Pom-Pom Scarf Tutorial will be one of my next projects. It’s so cute and has step by step instructions along the way.

I watch The Chew on ABC whenever I can, and this week I saw Michael Symon’s Eggs in Avocado. It looked so fresh and delicious. Might have to create a version this weekend.

Oh man. These need to be on my feet right now. These house shoes look so cozy! They’re made of wool and salmon skin. A little strange, but I’m on board with that.


These leather watches are pretty, timeless, and simple. They’re handmade and somewhat affordable.

These Vintage Pearl and Brass Earrings are so pretty. They would be a great gift for a lady in your family. . .or for yourself.

Hope y’all have a great weekend!


Friday Finds – Gift Guide


The weekend has arrived! Yippidy-do-da-day! D is going to catch a game at the Rose Bowl with a co-worker, and I’m going to fine tune my window shopping and couch sitting skills. I plan on making a lot of headway. Hope you all have something fun or relaxing waiting for you this weekend!

I feel like fall is the ultimate gift buying season, between Christmas and a ton of birthdays. So, this week Friday Finds is more like a gift guide, for someone else or for you! 🙂


I feel like everyone has a foodie in the family these days. This cookbook would be great for the travelling foodie.

I think this almond butter would be a great homemade present for family and friends. You could put it in a cute jar and tie a little raffia around the lid. Done!


Although it isn’t technically a gift, I think this Apple Pie Sangria would be a great addition to any holiday gathering.

I would say this is great gift for a brother-in-law, but I like it for myself. I love the leather scales on this flask.

These Salted Caramels would be a great gift for someone far away. Just order them and have them sent to their door.

My sister, Annie, would love this Beef Jerky. They have a few flavors to choose from.

I love this camo vest. Usually camo isn’t my thing, but I really like this one. It would be great for an outdoorsy girl.

I think this candle would be great for a girlfriend. You could give it as is, or make a little gift basket.

Paddywax Mason Jar Candle

If you have a dog lover on your Christmas list, check out this shop. These leashes are really pretty….and made in the South.

Dog Leashes from; $26-$30 each

These mixing bowls are so pretty. Anyone that’s spent time in the kitchen knows you can’t have too many.

Pretty and practical! Mixing Bowls from Gleena (

Woo-hooo! It’s my second favorite day of the week! I am so pumped to sit around and do very little most of the weekend. I think we are gonna watch a little OSU football and grill out. Looking forward to a pretty chill weekend. What are your plans??

Here are few things from around the web that caught my eye. Enjoy!

•I haven’t been into fanny packs for a good decade and half, but they are handy. If you had to carry one, I think this one would be nice.


•I’m always on the look out for a new cider. Here is Stella Artois Cidre. I’d give it a try.

•I love this dress. It looks so comfortable, but still so pretty.


•I am so happy fall is here! Afterall, it is my favorite season. I think these No Bake Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies will become a staple around here.

•Not that I am excited about pumpkin or anything…I mean, I don’t why you’d think that. 😉 This pumpkin ice cream has been screaming at me ever since I got my ice cream maker and it became September. So good.

•I don’t own any chargers, but I really like how casual these are.

Charger plate. Sur La Table

•Ohhh Frye boots are always my favorite. If you are will to remortgage, you can have these Frye boots.

•I really like this quote.

Never looked at it that way... Sort of gives life a new dimension...

•My friend, Julie, was telling me about Kendra Scott‘s new emerald jewelry she saw. I looked it up and love it. It’s a great color for the fall.

Have a great weekend! 🙂

Friday Finds – GameDay Edition


College football season is here, and D is beyond excited. 🙂  We’ll be able to watch the games on TV and cook some tailgate-ish food here in CA. But it’s just not the same as sippin’ on a coldie and eating BBQ in Stillwater.

Kayla and D tailgate 2011

The tailgate themed menu this week is slightly influenced by my birthday. My parents sent me an ice cream maker for my birthday, so I have to break that in. 🙂


Here’s the line -up. You’ll see recipes and pictures in upcoming posts.

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

My Mom’s Chocolate Sheet Cake (made by D, for my birthday, yay!)

Friday Finds + Vegas Bound


We made it to Friday! WooHoo!! 🙂

We’ve been planning to go to Vegas for a while now, and it has finally arrived! I’ve only been to Vegas once, and I am excited about making it twice! We’re going with our friends Julie and Rob. They’re getting married this coming spring, which we are super stoked about. 🙂

Julie Adam Rob Kayla

Julie and I tend to have a good time when we are together. Usually it involves a stiff drink or two, live music, and corndogs.

Me Julie Corndog Me and Julie bach party

And really, Vegas won’t be that different. I imagine we’ll find a couple stiff drinks, and if we see a good looking corndog, we’ll probably go ahead and get one. 😉

Here are some things from around the web I found this week. Hope you like them! 

Great cutting board for a hostess or wedding gift. This cute little esty shop will make whichever state you need.
