The Things I Loved This Week

Things I Love This Week from @cydconverse | Weekend DIY ideas, crafts projects, recipes, cocktail recipes, party ideas and more

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and I’ll be popping in with the next edition of our Real┬áTalk with Real Moms series, but in the meantime I didn’t want to skip out on sharing some of my favorite things from around the web this week. A few last minute things to inspire your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, alongside those boozy Irish coffee milkshakes we whipped up yesterday! Also, just a few things that inspired me in general or caught my eye. We’ll have a house full of kiddos this weekend so a walk down to our big local Irish festival and a slow cooker full of corned beef (for the meat-eating contingency) is topping our list of things to do this weekend. And maybe I’ll let my arm be twisted into whipping up a batch of those milkshakes for our favorite neighbors. (Chances are very very likely.)

1 | Leah’s Rainbow Layered Jello
It’s confession time! I kind of hate jello. It’s just really never done anything for me, even as a kid. That said, Leah might just make a tiny bit of convert out of me with these adorable rainbow layered jello bites.

2 | Natural Girl Modern World’s Beet + Pineapple Juice
Basically if you add beets to anything, I’m hooked. I love beets, I love that signature beet color and the flavor is just so good. This beet + pineapple juice looks amazing to me. Brunch, anyone?

3 | Blissful Basil’s Vegan Green Goddess Pasta
I am in love with basically everything that falls under the Green goddess category. Make it vegan and add pasta, and we’ve got a whole new love affair going on. And I love that green color!

4 | Margaux + Max’s Gallery Wall
Honestly, a good gallery wall will never grow old in my book, but I particularly love this one. Featuring sweet family photos all printed in black and white, with those simple wood frames, it’s just lovely.

5 | Eden’s Tokyo Mule Recipe
We are such huge fans of a good mule cocktail recipe around here, that I immediately perked up when I saw Eden’s recipe with an Asian twist. It’s made with sake! How incredible does that sound?

6 | The Fresh Exchange’s Lettering
I’m a long time fan of Megan’s lettering and this particular saying really resonates with me. If I told you all the ways this fits my life, I could write you a novel. Maybe I should do that some day…

Haha! I’m on a mission to convert one jello-hater at a time. ;) Thanks for including my recipe Cyd! xo
