Friday Best -- 1st of February

Feb 3, 2017

It's the first Friday of February and we likely all have snacks on our mind for the weekend. I know that is what I am looking forward to. I have a birthday party to attend on Saturday, so I'll get a double dose of snacks! Each week I round up my picks of the "best" things from the week -- This week's Friday Best is a blend of home decor, girlie finds, & celebrations.

Best celebration
My mom & I had dinner (bbq & beers) to celebrate my brother Stephen's birthday. My other brother had to work late so he cheers'ed to him when he got home.

Best sweet treat
I myself am a donut I am wanting to recreate this awesome cake! Would be fun for a birthday or galentine's event.

Best store for a grocery haul
I am a mega Aldi's fan! This week I went & stocked up on a lot of my essentials so I would be set for a bit. I got all of this plus a new broom & yoga mat for $78. Items I get just about every-time I go to Aldi's = Quonia/rice box blend, ground turkey, fire roasted salsa, black beans, cheese, chicken breast.

Best (and affordable) shower curtain
ordered this from target (on sale for $16) & am excited to re-vamp my bathroom a bit. I've been using the curtain from my last apartment (which I like) but still have nothing up in my basement bathroom. So I am going to put that one downstairs and try this in my main bath. Time for a little refresh.

Best mantra
I spotted this quote on the Good Housekeeping Instagram & it's obviously fitting for this week (#GroundhogDay) as well as the dark and bright times of life in general.

Best  posts I've read/seen this week 
Blog -- Love the details of this wild one's birthday party / Little Glass Jar started a new monthly series of her favorite things - it's a good one! / How cute is Jess' Madewell outfit? / Keira's Sunday posts this + that are a must read for me.
Instagram-- I love how Lauren styled her suede moto jacket with a graphic tee- wouldn't have thought to do that. / Graceful's copper wine rack is so fun! I think I may need. / How great are these Valentine's Day details?!
