Welcome to the weekend, my friends! April’s flowers brought some rain and thunderstorms with them and I’m loving every chilly minute. The fact that the temps in Phoenix are already in the 90s makes today’s 56°F here in Ohio feel even more like a gift.


And to all my friends dealing with the desert heat right now, you can remind me how awesome the Phoenix winters are next January, k?


ON THE BLOG this week: Balsamic Dijon Glazed Ham is what will be on my table tomorrow. I’ve loved this ham recipe more than any other for so many years. There really is nothing else like it.


Hearty Italian Vegetable Beef Soup is Sean’s favorite soup to stash in the freezer and reheat for lunches through the week.


Spinach Orzo Salad with Cranberries, Almonds, and Goat Cheese has been my lunch three times this past week. I can not get enough of this salad. It is so good!


What I’m CRAVING: These Lemon Blueberry Scones by Mom on Timeout and this Carrot Coconut Bread by Inside BruCrew Life are both looking pretty amazing. And this Pasta with Roasted Spring Vegetables by Iowa Girl Eats needs to happen too.


My FAVORITE THING this week is this AMAZING fuzzy blanket. (link HERE) It’s a faux sherpa throw and at a tiny fraction of the price compared to the real thing it’s a screaming deal. I love this thing. It’s on the chair in my office and it’s the softest, coziest, fuzzy blanket ever.


What I’m READING: China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan (link HERE) If you haven’t checked it out yet, this series is a fun read. Now that I’ve read the book, I’m excited to finally see the movie. (link HERE) Have you seen it?

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
