What I’m Loving Lately XLVIII


Happy Friday, friends! Did this week fly by for anyone else? I feel like it was just Monday morning, and I was pouring myself an iced coffee. I swear, Tuesday through this morning was a whirlwind. Whoa. Time warp. Anyway, it’s my favorite day of the week (FRI-YAY!), so here is the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately!

White Chocolate Mac ‘n’ Cheese – Well, this recipe definitely caught my attention. It calls for 1 cup of white chocolate chips (for real) + all sorts of delicious cheeses, so, of course, I’m super curious about it. I might just have to make it. Related: It’s also known as “Crack Mac.”

New hand towels for our master bathroom – I looked at 3 (yes, 3!) different Kohls to buy these hand towels with no luck. I ended up giving up and buying these ones instead, but then I found these at Target, which are by far my favorite of the bunch. Phew. Who knew bathroom décor was so difficult? Haha!

Enjoy the weekend, friends!!!


  1. So this weekend I’m making bacon, mac n’cheese and peanut butter blondies? haha Thank you for the great finds, have a great weekend!

  2. Let me know how the crack mac is because that just seems a little odd.

    And my husband found those trolley bag things on the internet and showed them to me! They are genius!

  3. Ahh, that guy posing as Target Customer Service must have had the best catharsis ever! I hope Target takes it easy on him. 🙂 And those Trolley Bags: a friend of mine posted them on Facebook last week, and I immediately decided that I’m getting those for everyone for Christmas. EVERYONE.

  4. A sad occurrence…no more bacon at my house. But I imagine baking it would make your whole house smell delicious!

    Not sure on the trolley bags. They’re super cute…but wondering if they may not be more hassle than its worth?

  5. That list of stuff about college in the 90s is so funny because I’m not much younger than you, but I started college in 2003, and besides having land lines in our dorm, none of this applies 😀 my husband too, talks about how different things were between when he started college and when he graduated

  6. Loved all your “loves” Tina and just spent a good chunk of time checking out practically every link. I like the Target towels and may buy them too! Also the Madewell shoes. Thanks! :o)

  7. Wow, that white chocolate mac n’ cheese caught my eye right away. I wonder if it’s sweet? Because that doesn’t sound super appetizing to me. ;D

  8. Tina,

    I have been following you for years and I have never commented. I love watching your family grow, you are simply the best. Thank you for sharing your life with us!
