Date Milkshakes

date milkshakes // my bacon-wrapped life

Five days from today, nine of my very best girlfriends and I will be descending upon the gorgeous desert town of Palm Springs, CA for a weekend of pool time, floppy hats, and irresponsible amounts of champagne. It’s my bachelorette party, ya’ll!!

I have been looking forward to this weekend ever since Brad and I got engaged. How often do I get to hang out with my best friends all at once for an ENTIRE weekend?! I absolutely can’t wait for a weekend of boozing and eating and lounging with my ladies, so I had to make something to celebrate this momentous occasion: date milkshakes!

To me, a house just isn’t a home until you’ve baked a loaf of banana bread in it.

Banana bread was the very first post I ever did for a reason – it is, hands-down, my favorite baked treat to make. It’s incredibly forgiving and requires only one bowl to throw together; it’s so cozy, comforting, and just always hits the spot. I have many versions of banana bread here on my site, but there’s always room for one more, right?! A new banana bread for our lovely new home!

Mango Green Smoothie Bowls

Hello from the other side (of moving)! I kept trying to find an hour or two to post these bowls of sunshine this weekend, but between packing, moving, unpacking, organizing, and watching the season premiere of Game of Thrones (priorities!!) that hour just never materialized. But I promise these mango green smoothie bowls are totally worth the wait!
