Welcome to the weekend, my friends! I had such a great time in Kansas. Thank you to all of you for your amazing suggestions. I lost count of how many people recommended I check out Oklahoma Joe’s and it did not disappoint. You can see everywhere I went and what I ate in the Instagram highlight under Kansas City!


ON THE BLOG this week: Have you tried the Irresistible Mandarin Broccoli Salad? I’m not exaggerating; this salad is beyond delicious and without a doubt the best broccoli salad I’ve ever had.


Corn Pudding is a holiday classic. It’s rich, creamy, sweet corn deliciousness that is unforgettable and if it isn’t already part of your Thanksgiving tradition, my family thinks you need to try it soon. (And last but not least, you don’t need a box mix to make this recipe!)


What I’m CRAVING: I can't wait to try this Sweet ‘n Spicy Guinness Snack Mix by Sweet C’s. It sounds so good! And speaking of cravings, it has been way too long since I had a puff pastry fruit braid. This Cherry Breakfast Braid at Spaceships and Laserbeams looks perfect.


My FAVORITE THINGS this week are these eye masks. (link HERE) Have you tried them yet? I’m not going to deny that the price of most face masks and eye masks puts me off, (I still buy some of them, but they’re an indulgence for sure.) These masks? They are a screaming deal compared to the others. Do they work? Ha - I have no idea if any of the pampering things on the market “work,” but I absolutely love the way they feel and my eyes feel amazing after one use.


What I’m READING: Wrapped in Rain by Charles Martin (link HERE) I’m on another Charles Martin reading binge and I loved this one. This is a story of faith and healing and love. The inspiration found in these books is priceless and I have already started the next one.


"Life is a battle, but you can't fight it with your fists. You got to fight it with your heart." - Miss Ella, Wrapped in Rain


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