As soon as I hit publish on this post, I’m headed out to a dentist appointment (awesome) and some errands. Today started a bit later than usual since Bobby and I were out way past our weeknight bedtime of 9 p.m. We had a reservation at Cafe Ba-Ba- Reeba, one of my favorite restaurants in the city. When I first moved to Chicago, Ba-Ba-Reeba was a go-to for my girlfriends and me since it’s affordable and always delicious. Bobby and I hadn’t officially celebrated my new job, so last night we did just that over a pitcher of white peach sangria and Spanish tapas.
Spicy potatoes & lamb meatballs (my favorite)
Manchego cheese flatbread
Butterscotch custard & mini banana split for dessert
I could wax poetic all day long about my love for Ba-Ba-Reeba, but it’s time to jump to the real reason you stopped by today, Favorite Finds Friday. If you’re a new reader to The Magic Tree (welcome!), Friday’s post is always a bit random. It’s the place where I share my favorite finds from the past week, including links, pins, articles, recipes, products and anything else that made my week!
- Madewell booties. I was on the lookout for weeks for the perfect pair of tan booties. Once these babies went on sale last month, I snatched them up and couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately, the exact boot is sold out, but I almost went with these, as they’re very similar.
- I’ve been on a major kale salad kick lately. This one included craisins and parmesan cheese.
- I love this classy southern gal, and don’t think she’s ever looked better.
- These black bean brownies are on the menu for the weekend. I’ve sung her praises before, but Chocolate Covered Katie is the best thing to happen to the dessert world!
- Woman takes dying dog on bucket list adventure. <– one of the sweetest stories, but prepare for tears.
- Couple married for 68 years die only hours apart. <– The Notebook is real, yall!
- 5 conversations to have before you get married. <– written by a fellow therapist and one of my favorite bloggers.
