Things That Thrill Me

I made these delicious beer cheese chicken pretzel sliders last weekend, and it definitely will be a repeat recipe throughout the summer.

Carly shared her favorite picks for blue and green nail polish shades for spring this week, which led me to pick up Essie’s Find Me An Oasis that same day.

The 2015 Summerfest grounds stage headliners
were announced Tuesday, and I am thrilled with the artists that will be
making an appearance this year. Here’s to hoping that Ryan and I can make it
down to the city to catch a few shows!

This post from Helene about why she follows certain Instagram accounts was a great read and provided useful tips and insight on how to make your account stand out from others.

You all are aware of my infinite love for funfetti cake, and I’ve
always wanted to try my hand at making my own. This recipe not only
looks doable, but the cake is just so darn cute to look at!

I stumbled upon this quote in my Pinterest feed earlier this week, and it has stuck with me ever since. So much truth in such a simple statement.

You really never can have too many watches – seriously, there’s a type and color for every occasion – and I think The Horse watch from Parc Boutique would be the perfect addition to my (extensive) collection.

I recently came across Little Miss Fearless, and I am hooked. Amanda’s style is flawless, and I’m kind of obsessed with her haircut.

Buffalo, ranch AND shrimp all in one salad?! Sign me up.

    Yes! Your white and rose gold watch is gorgeous – I definitely think I need one similar in my collection soon. πŸ™‚ Amanda's blog is so pretty, I can't get enough!

  2. 3.30.15

    Ha! I always feel hungry after finding these links, too. The chicken sliders were absolutely delicious – I can't recommend them enough!

  3. 3.30.15

    You and me both! I've painted my nails about five times in the past week because I just want to keep rotating out the bright spring colors. πŸ™‚

  4. 3.30.15

    Yeah! Isn't the lineup for the free stages unbelievable this year?! I can't believe some of the big names coming.

  5. 3.30.15

    So glad you found some inspiration today! πŸ™‚

  6. 3.30.15

    Me too! I'm buying the ingredients today so I can make that salad.

    I knew you'd appreciate that quote just as much as me! I know that you've never been to Summerfest – it's so fun, but a lot of people.

  8. 3.30.15

    Ha, right?! You and me both, girlfriend!

    Girl, you're missing out! Pretzel buns/rolls are pretty much my favorite thing ever. It just adds a little extra something to a sandwich, burger, etc.

  10. 3.30.15

    That quote really stuck with me after I found it – I've been trying to let go of a few grudges ever since!

  11. 3.30.15

    Summerfest is so fun. We always try to at least go for one day, but then we're over it – I don't do well with the mass amounts of people!

  12. 3.30.15

    The sliders were so. good. We will be making them many more times this summer, I think! Helene's Instagram post was a great read, very helpful!

  13. 3.30.15

    The sliders are absolutely delish, and I'm buying the ingredients today to make the salad!

  14. 3.30.15

    Of course, girl! I'm glad I'm not the only one that was late to the game in following that blog – her style is so fabulous!

  15. 3.30.15

    Ha! You're hilarious. They really were SO delicious. The pretzel bun really completes the whole meal if you ask me.

  16. 3.30.15

    Me too!

  17. 3.30.15

    Yes! It sounds like we all took some inspiration from Carly's post last week. I'm buying the ingredients to make that salad at the grocery store today, too. πŸ™‚

  18. 3.30.15

    YES! There is no other cake than funfetti cake in my mind.

  19. 3.30.15

    Oh my goodness, how cute! I can't believe it's taken me this long to stumble upon her blog – her style is so flawless, and the overall design is so girly and chic.

    OMG I am dying over those sliders. YUM! Loved reading Helene's post about Instagram. Her's has really been on point lately! And confessions, Little Miss Fearless was the first blog I ever followed and her blog was what I tried to design my blog around (although she's redesigned since then!). She is so cute!
