Welcome to the weekend, my friends! Today’s newsletter is coming to you a little later in the day than usual. After a nonstop week, where I was hardly in the office at all, I chose to sleep in a bit this morning and catch up later in the day.

Thank you so much for all of your sweet notes in my email this morning, wondering where today’s newsletter was! I’m thrilled that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it each week. This was an incredible week filled with friends, family, and a whole lot of work too. I hope that your week has been every bit as amazing.

My friend Rebecca flew in from New York and we had a production team in the kitchen with us this week. (You can peek at our shoots here or over on Instagram! Be kind, my friends.) They shot some great new recipe videos and I can hardly wait to share them with you this summer! Southern Style Coleslaw, BBQ Sundaes, Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas, Best Ever Ranch Dressing, Ham and Cheese Waffles, Garlic Lover’s Potato Salad, and Pineapple Mojitos are all coming your way soon!

What I’m craving: Pepperoni Pizza Bialys by Foodie with Family. WOW. I tasted these for the first time this past week while we were shooting recipe videos. They are incredible. I already promised my boys that we would make them again next week.

My FAVORITE THING this week is my new lipstick (link HERE). I’ve been a tinted gloss kind of girl for years, however, in prepping for our camera work this week, I decided it was time to figure out some actual makeup. I was pleasantly surprised with this lipstick. It’s by far the best lipstick I’ve ever worn. It lasted for hours and even through a meal. I’ve already purchased a second lipstick for my purse. (I actually bought mine locally, so I can’t speak to this particular seller on Amazon.)

What I’m watching: Do I even need to mention the fact that a certain movie released on DVD this week??? (link HERE) You have exactly one guess what I watched on Tuesday night.
