few may know that the creator of fabu site- is from York, PA.
which just so happens to be where both sides of my family are from.
[which secretly makes feel like I have some sort of a personal connection to this phenom.]

things I’ve learned-loved-and-savored from pinterest this week…

scarf inspiration from the fashion spot
just recently learned a new way to tie my daily scarf from one of my besties
[just so happens to be number 3 on the website]

here’s my attempt.
[[it’s like a whole new accessory!]] 


This is something I want to try-
just sounds so refreshing + great benefits :)

To boost weight loss + increase energy – 
2L water, 1 medium cucumber, 1 lemon, 10-12 mint leaves. 
steep overnight in fridge and drink everyday.


 found this deelicious inspiration for our “football” dinner 

I made my own version…

pull-apart pizza knots
  • 1 can Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits 
  • 20 pepperoni slices
  • 2 mozzarella cheese sticks, cubed
  • 1 egg [for wash]
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Generously grease the bottom and sides of desired casserole dish with non-stick spray.
  3. Pop open biscuit can. 
  4. Split each biscuit in half.
  5. Make each half into mini pizza circle. 
  6. Layer with 1 pepperoni [cut in fourths] and 1 mozzarella cube.
  7. Bring biscuit dough up around cheese + pepperoni to form a “knot.”
  8. Repeat with remaining biscuits, pepperonis, and cheese. 
  9. Place in casserole dish, pinched side down, and pushed up against other knots. 
  10. Brush egg wash over knots when finished. 
  11. Dust with Italian seasoning and sea salt.
  12. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until tops begin to brown. 
  13. Meanwhile, heat marinara sauce in microwave or stove-top. 
  14. When finished-let cool, pull-apart, dunk, and enjoy!! 


2. These amazing bowls are one of my favorite kitchen tools.
 they were a wedding gift from one of my favorite ladies on the planet! {SDS}

 3. Rotisserie Chicken
the smell alone can cause one to want to pull-over 
on the way home from the store just to sample a-piece. just sayin’

something I love to do,
 is get one– pull off the legs & save them for dinner. 
then I shred the remaining chicken + make a chicken salad for sandwiches for the week! 

shredded chicken + equal parts mayo & mustard + chopped green onion + shredded carrots

nothing like switching up your decor’ to spice things up a bit 
and put a little pick-up in your giddy-up!

used a table runner that my husband’s grandmother made [gorgeous!]
and some good ole’ carnations, mason jars, and old blue bottles i had. 


and with that I will leave you with a few of my favorite-furry-faces. 
goodnight + Downton be with you 😉
