Sparkles and Sunshine: Weekly Round Up

Weekly Round Up

Happy Friday!

I am so happy that it's FRI-NALLY the weekend! I feel like this work week had some really long days and I can't wait to just spend some relaxing time at home. Now, I do have a funny story for you guys. So, my mom and I make fun of my dad a lot. Like a lot. No really, a LOT. But he makes it so easy. Like, he does stupid/funny (to us haha) stuff all the time like it's regular behavior! So this week, my parents had roofers come out to inspect the roof after last year's hurricane - yes it took the insurance company THAT long to get out there. The list is long though so it's not their fault. Any who, my dad was home to talk to the roofers and right before they came he had gone to the bathroom. Once they left he went back into the bathroom, only to discover he had a decently long "tail" I would call it of toilet paper hanging out of his butt. I almost died when my mom told me this. So, he has no idea if it was tucked into his pants or if it was hanging out. If it was hanging out, the roofers were nice enough not to say anything. I wouldn't have been able to keep a straight face if I were them though. I'd lose it so fast and so hard! 😂😂😂

I hope that gave ya'll a good laugh! Now, onto today's round up!


I'm not sure why, but I found two delicious looking grilled cheese sandwich recipes this week. The first recipe, from Cooking Classy, is a sun dried tomato spinach and ricotta grilled cheese. Like what?! That sounds amazing! The second, equally delicious looking grilled cheese recipe is from Chelsea's Messy Apron. Her recipe for a Margherita grilled cheese combines two amazing things: pizza and grilled cheeses! If either of these sound absolutely mouth watering, click the links below to check out the recipes!

In this week's round up I also wanted to include a new recipe that Chandler and I tried for dinner. I found this recipe on Pinterest and it is super delicious and easy! P.S. I also have this recipe saved in my recipes board on Pinterest. If you love pesto, tortellini and more then this recipe is for you!

I LOVE cereal. It's kind of a problem. You know how everyone has their go-to snack? Mine is cereal hands down. I actually stopped buying it for a while because I would eat it at night even if I wasn't hungry. I just loved it! I let myself have it this week though. It was nice. :) I found a recipe this week for a triple oat breakfast cereal that looks great. I have always eaten non-sugary cereals like corn flakes or regular cheerios (not honey-nut), so this one instantly caught my eye! Check it out below!

I am very unsure of this final recipe. You know when you're at a restaurant and someone lists something on the menu that sounds like an interesting combination and you're very unsure if it will taste amazing or if the combo is so wrong it's impossible to be right? That's how I'm feeling right now. I do think it could be interesting to try though. Kalyn's Kitchen has a recipe for roasted asparagus with creamy tahini-peanut dipping sauce. Up for the challenge? Check out the recipe below!

I love jumpsuits! Like a dress, they're a one and done piece that takes little to no time in the mornings. Camille from Charmed by Camille shared the cutest jumpsuit from the splendid X Margherita Missoni collection and it is adorable and a staple summer piece!

Andrea Besson shared the cutest little white dress on her Instagram this week that I had to share! White looks are so trendy right now, and this simple but elegant dress is the perfect essential! Plus, like Andrea mentions, it's perfect for rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and more!

I have shared a few looks from Venus (with more to come too!) before and so I couldn't help but share this cute look from Lisa of Pancetta & Prada! I have a dress very similar that I love so this dress instantly caught my eye!
