Whenever we plunge into decorating our dining room, two things are certain: I want wallpaper and I want a bar cart stocked full of delightful sips and treats to welcome guests…I love the whole look of a bar cart and the fact that it’s not only decorative, but that it’s functional as well. Designer extraordinaire Kendall posted a list of necessities every bar cart needs and I thought it was a great round-up/tutorial on how to achieve the perfect bar cart. You can read her blog post here.
Three. PF Changs Copycat Mongolian Beef/Lettuce Wraps
I made these last week and yes, they were as good as the original..and they didn’t cost nearly as much as they do at the restaurant…yay for saving money and still eating well! I got this recipe from Jo Cooks and want to make sure I am giving credit where credit is due… you can see the post with step-by-step instructions here. If you’re looking for a new dinner entree to spice things up, this was a great hit for us!
Four. The Ever Essential Moscow Mule
I received some pretty amazing copper mugs for Christmas and I have been itching to properly break them in. I saw this snapshot for how to create the perfect moscow mule last week and immediately bookmarked it…I think this will make a tasty treat for Jeff and I this weekend!
Five. The Humor Continues
This…this is SO me. Anybody have this issue?? Yeah, I’m not going to lie…I love to shop. Hence why I’ve picked up a couple of new “essentials” over the past two weeks like this and this and this. When it’s on sale or a REALLY good deal, I’m always one to pull the trigger!
That’s all for my Friday favorites…can’t see to see some other goodness from yall, too! I’m off to host a playdate with friends and then have a family fun weekend with just the four of us. Warmer weather is headed to Tennessee so we’re going to be playing these next two days and savoring the pretty sun as much as possible.
I absolutely LOVED that post on bar carts. Pinned that pic and still swooning over that wallpaper! Cannot wait to come shop with you this week!!! Hoping for a girls night but might get anxious and come early with the little men in tow. 😉 Have a fabulous weekend and drink a Moscow Mule for me!
