currently crushing on I


This week! It was a good one. I popped over to DeLallo to see some food blogger friends that were in town and got to spend a little time with one of my favorite people. Everybody needs somebody in their life who is wildly encouraging and cheering them on and I didn’t realize just how much I needed that this week.

Next week! Is insane. Lots of photo shoots and fun things. I also have a cooking class on Thursday night at Crate if you’re local. Weeeeee margaritas.

On Monday I showed you how to make my favorite whipped coconut cream, step by step, over on the Pioneer Woman. Check it out and then eat it on EVERYTHING.
