Friday Favs 4/24/09


late again..... it is just too beautiful outside!

1. Holland's Landscaping & Garden Center in Moorhead, MN
My dear friend, Charity B., took me here yesterday and I had an absolute blast! Even though the garden area wasn't completely ready, (afterall, it is still the tale end of winter here!) they are definitely getting ready for Spring!! They had some of the funnest stuff! I was like a kid in a candy store there- so many great handmade items for both your home and garden, and a lot of them made by local artists! I can't wait to go back :)


2. Pink Paislee {duh!}
I love this company- usually because they are so fun and GIRLY, however I about fainted when I received the new "Fetching" line in a kit- awesome awesome awesome! I love this line and it is perfect for BOYS! (kit reveal in less than a week- stay tuned!)


3. The Awakening Series by Charles Martin
Just finished these books- and I LOVED them- they have so much raw emotion and the writing will carry you away for hours. Amazing story line- will entertain both men and women.
Check them out!

4. Yard Sales!
One of my most favorite hobbies... you never know what you will find! The season is starting again and I am giddy with anticipation of the treasures I might come across!


5. Garlic Parmesan Monkey Bread made by Bridgford Foods
Seriously, this bread is amazing & you can cook it in your microwave in 2.5 mins! It is sooooo good! We are keeping it stocked in our house ;)

Friday Favs (a day late...) 4/17/09

This has been a crazy few weeks for sure... I am so sad I haven't kept up with my Friday Favs! So here they are for this week... even though they are a day late.... Enjoy!

1. Photography
This picture of Anabelle that I took with my cell phone. She was sitting in the attic of an old Victorian house looking out the window... it is maybe my favorite picture ever!!

2. Springtime!
We recently went to a garden center and it was amazing to see all the beauty and growth inside the greenhouses there. Here is North Dakota, spring doesn't usually start until May, but at the garden center, it was in full bloom!

3. Wild Finches
Along with springtime, comes all the birds! I have been soooo enjoying watching all the little finches come to my feeders! I have 5 feeders up and I am having to re-fill them every other day or so. The birds are HUNGRY, and I am just fine with that, because I LOVE watching them every day!!


4. Old Victorian Houses
We are house hunting.... we have lived in ND for almost 2 years now, and we have decided to buy a house here in our town. We really love it here, and we hope to settle and stay for awhile!
I am LOVING all the old turn of the century Victorian homes here, and I am hoping we can find the perfect one for us!




5. Starbucks Peppermint Mocha
I can't believe I haven't used this as one of my favs before! These are popular at Christmas, but here's a secret.... You can get them year round, and it is a good thing too, because this is my absolute FAVORITE starbucks drink!! Woohoo!!

Friday Favs 4/3/09

Happy Friday Y'all!!
I know it has been a couple weeks since I posted my favs, but I am BACK!

1. Knight for a Princess
The Annual "Knight for a Princess" held in Grand Forks, ND is a special "Ball" held for daddy's to take their little girls to a night of dinner and dancing!!

Matt took Julianna and Anabelle tonight & I had a blast shopping, getting them ready and then taking pictures of them all dolled up! I think it is an awesome idea for daddy's to spend time with their daughters!!!


2. Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels
I LOVE this stuff! I am using it more and more! If you haven't tried it yet- GO GET SOME!


3. Cracker Barrel Old Country Store & Restaurant
I love this place!!! When I was home in Jacksonville, Fl last week, my sisters and I went there for breakfast. YUM! I love their cheesy hashbrown casserole :) Then we got someone to take a picture of the 3 of us sitting in the rocking chairs out front!!



4. Spa Pedicures
Even though there is still snow on the ground here in ND, and flip flop season is a couple months off, one of my fav indulgences is a PEDICURE! I love how relaxing it is to sit in the massage chair and be pampered for an hour!


5. My Hometown- Jacksonville Beach, FL
It was great to be home, even if it was only for a few days! Living up north has given me a real appreciation for sunshine and the beach... both things I had taken for granted before moving! Look at this coastline! GORGEOUS!!! I am so lucky to be able to call Jax Beach my hometown!


It is SPRINGTIME! Get out and enjoy the beauty!!!! Enjoy the SUN!!
and have an awesome weekend!!! :)
xoxo- Zoa
