friday I’m in love.

welcome back friday!

{one} go gold for childhood cancer awareness month.

childhood cancer awareness month

{via Charlotte’s Story}

As I mentioned last winter (here) our niece Charlotte was diagnosed with stage 3 liver cancer when she was 15 months old. Since then she has had an amazing journey & recovery from chemotherapy & surgery to respect the tumor. We are so, so thankful every day that Charlotte was such a fighter & such a brave little one. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month & as much as it pains me that we even have to have a month devoted to cancer in children (seriously, it is just awful!), there aren’t nearly enough resources being used to help with research, treatment, & maybe one day, cures. Check out Kendra’s awesome post over on the Orlando City Mom’s Blog.

{two} five minute magic green sauce.

5 Minute Magic Green Sauce - use on salads, with chicken, or just as a dip! Easy ingredients like parsley, cilantro, avocado, garlic, and lime. Vegan! {via Pinch of Yum}

Have I shared this before? I feel like I have, but maybe I just like it so much that I have been sharing it with everyone! (Also, the search function on my blog is broken, so no Buenos). We don’t eat a lot of chicken around here, but if we do, I like to jazz it up a bit. I am all about simple during the week, so I buy a big box of chicken breasts (we like the Simple Truth brand – it isn’t organic, but for the occasional meal it works!) & then I can defrost in the fridge during the day, marinate for 30 minutes, & then have Aaron grill it up. This sauce though would work on a lot more than chicken! Try it & let me know what you think!

{three} fall wardrobe.


{via Cornflake Dreams}

As fall feels like it is rapidly taking over Seattle (seriously summer, why such an abrupt end?) I am feeling ready for the transition. It seems like eons ago I was wearing sweaters & jeans, & keeping the sleeves rolled down on my button-up shirts. And you know what else I am ready for? Dressing Eloise for the fall! What is it about clothes for tiny humans that are so darn cute?
