My Affection for Teal

friday faves

I’ve fallen in like with teal over the past…oh, maybe 5 years? It started appearing in my home first, then in clothing and accessories. I have yet to buy teal shoes, but this picture from Mandy has me on the lookout.

As I was perusing pinterest, I realized how much of this glorious teal is on my “favorite places & spaces” board. It’s too good not to share. This first one only has a teensy hint of the color in the pillows, but this outdoor space is simply begging for me to chill out and take a nap, so I had to share:

Oooohhhh…what’s your favorite space? It’s a hard choice for me, but I’m pretty smitten with the bedroom 3 pics up – white comforter, lots of great, natural lighting, a chandelier, and gorrrrrrgeous velvet tufted stools at the end of the bed. They’re pretty enough, I might even be convinced not to drape a week’s worth of clothes all over them!

And, last but not least…this clearly has nothing to do with teal, buuuuuuuuuut, I ate these this week. Made ’em for Jonathan and I during our couple’s night {aka: stay-at-home-and-date-night}. Some of you saw them on my instagram feed, so I thought I would share the lovely recipe in case you want to gain weight with me.

Serve it hot from the oven with a few scoops of vanilla ice cream & BAM: that’s all you need, friends.

So, that’s a wrap! We are heading into a busy week beginning with a youth conference {Friday – Saturday} and revival services at my church next week. Pluuus, my favorite ever rummage sale is taking place tomorrow morning. The sale & conference are timed perfectly so that I’ll be able to make it to both events. Gloriousness.

What do you have going on this weekend? Any other rummage sale-rs out there?

    Oh Christa, you should have not posted this photo of this chocolate lava cake. I have been having what my husband calls “bake attacks,” and just when I thought I had baked enough… I think I am having another “bake attack.”

    haha – well, I’m sorry for the bake attack I caused! But I think you will thank me after you taste this!! 😉
