Welcome to the weekend, my friends! We've had a week filled with endless errands, work, school, and boxes to pack. I’m looking forward to a visit from my mom next week and hopefully a little bit slower pace for a few days.

ON THE BLOG this week: All of my favorite salad combinations are wrapped up in one giant post for you. And if you haven’t yet tried homemade ranch dressing, you’re truly missing out.

Do you know what the secret ingredient is for perfect banana bread every time?

What I’m CRAVING: Chinese food! I found these Chinese Chicken Fingers over at The Cozy Cook and I can’t wait to try them. I’m betting they’ll be delicious with this Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce.

My FAVORITE THING this week is my tape gun (link HERE). Not even kidding. How did we pack years ago without all the tools to make things easier??? I’ve used it endlessly this week while packing up the studio, my office, and alllllll the books. Despite the fact, we’ve already gotten rid of a couple truckloads of things, the packing marathon continues.

What I’m LISTENING to: Queen (link HERE) and Def Leppard (link HERE). Some music just never gets old.

What I’m READING: Camino Island by John Grisham (link HERE). I hadn’t read a Grisham novel in years and I was thrilled to realize how many new ones were available. To be honest, so far this one hasn’t really grabbed my interest, but I’m hopeful it will pick up. Some books just take a little longer to grab you, and Grisham has always been a good read.

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