Hey guys! Happy FriYAY! I can’t believe the weekend is here! What a crazy, busy, and totally fun week it’s been – and now the weekend is here! Holy cow, the summer is already flying by! Since it’s Friday and all, here’s the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately!
Hunter Flip-Flops – Ooooh, yes! I love my Hunter boots so much and wear them a ton, so I was pumped to see that the brand makes flip-flops too. Sign me up! 🙂 I’m also lovin’ this jersey tank dress . I need it in my life!
Lower calorie and somewhat healthy cocktails – Just in time for the 4th! Cheers!

Banza Chickpea Mac & Cheese – The nice people from Banza sent me some of their chickpea mac & cheese, and I couldn’t be more in love with it! It’s so tasty, gluten-free, and loaded with protein – 18 grams per serving! Even Quinn likes it! I don’t think I’ll ever buy traditional boxed mac & cheese again.
The Deluxe variety is pictured below (mixed with chopped spinach). The cheese is like Velveeta, but the ingredients don’t include any of that funny stuff!
Basecamp’s CEO Limits Himself to 40-Hour Workweeks and He Thinks You Should Too – Loved this article, and it definitely made me think twice about how much I work.
Lovin’ these lettuce wraps! My gosh, they’re delicious and couldn’t be easier to make – just pop the ingredients in a crockpot and you’re good to go!
Beautycounter shade chart – This is so helpful for matching shades between products!
I know that I mentioned this tumbler last week, but I just had to share it again because it goes everywhere with me lately, and I’m truly loving it!
Question of the Day
What’s up for the weekend and July 4th holiday?
We are cooking out with cooking and praying the rain off! Those lettuce wraps look amazing!
I need to get my hands on some of that Banza Mac & Cheese! I’m sure my boys would love it too!
Yesss! It’s so good!!!
Three cheers for a 40 hour work week. I need a boss that thought 60 hours was average. More work does not mean better work! Speaking of I’m looking forward to a week at the beach on vacation to celebrate the holiday!
I’ve never heard of chickpea mac & cheese but it looks amazing! Two of my favorite foods combined? Win! Spending the 4th of July weekend at the beach, like everyone else in DC! Hoping to get a ton of reading done and some time away from the interwebs 🙂 Enjoy your weekend Tina!
Thank you – you too! 🙂
I still have a box of banza that i need to dig into! Totally into healthier and refreshing cocktails too. Im in Tahoe for the 4th!
Visiting family in Philadelphia and then staying at an inn on the Hudson in New York, Enjoy
I used to work in consulting and if you weren’t working 80 hours a week, you were told to leave. It was insane. So glad I know work for myself!
I had never seen that Banza mac and cheese, sounds awesome! Also I am totally ready for one of those cocktails lol.
I’m a little late to this comment party, but I have got to get my hands on that mac and cheese! I wouldn’t even call myself a huge mac and cheese lover, but that one looks incredible, especially mixed with spinach!
My 4th of July weekend was incredible! It was a mix of friends, traveling (spent the weekend in Annapolis!) and celebrating my two year anniversary with my dude. Oh, and lots of cocktails. 😉
