Friday Favorites June

Happy Friday, Friends! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve had time to do a Friday Favs post. It’s funny how something that takes you guys 5 minutes to read can take ages to put together!

Here’s what I’m loving this week!

1. My kitty Jasper is usually pretty brave about noise (he grew up hearing the Epcot fireworks every night) but recent storms have worried him a little, and he’s taken to hiding under the covers.

I like to refer to these as “Jasper is a Fancy Lady”.

2. This ice cream:

I never buy ice cream, but I randomly spotted this a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t resist. IT’S AMAZING.


3. I’ve taken 2 quick overnight trips to Eureka Springs, Arkanas in the past couple of weeks, and had all kinds of adventures. (I’ve already posted about meeting the ghosts of the 1886 Crescent Hotel there!) As I was leaving to head home last week, I stopped by the “city park” on a whim. Like the rest of the town, it’s not quite what you’d expect. Instead of some swings and benches and whatever else comes to mind when you think city park, you get over 20 miles of hiking trails, and scenery that looks like this:

Whaaat? I was short on time when I stopped so I only got to hang out for about half an hour, but now I can’t wait to go back. If the forecast wasn’t calling for almost 90 degree temps this weekend, it would be impossible to resist. SOON, though!

4. My current bullet journal is just a few pages away from being full, so I’m getting ready to set up a new one. Came across this post of 15 Bullet Journal Ideas, and picked up some great inspiration!


5. I’m part of’s influenster program, which means the cats get to try out and “review” new food and treats every month. This month, they received Ziwi Peak Beef Recipe cat food, and it’s been getting rave reviews!

I just wanted a pic of the food, not your adorable pink tongue, you nerd.

I love that it comes in larger (6.5 oz) cans so I don’t have to open a billion just to feed everyone, and that the meat comes from sustainably run farms with free range, grass fed animals. The cats like that it’s yummy food and they get to eat it. (They’re not very tough critics.)

Be sure to check out yesterday’s post about the gorgeous Chihuly exhibition at Crystal Bridges Museum if you missed it! The Friday Favs graphic at the top of the post is made from a pic of one of the beautiful blown glass pieces there.

Happy weekending!
