Friday Favorites from Tea and Cookies, Plant Propaganda, Have Some Decorum, Classy Cooking and More!

Good morning! I say this every Friday and this one will be no different, I am so happy it is Friday! I cannot wait for the weekend because I have nothing on my agenda. I just want to relax and do nothing. Ok, maybe not nothing, I want to read and each junk food and relax.

I have a few personality quirks and one of them is that I like to have take out or make "junk food" or comfort food on Friday, it is how I know that the weekend has begun. Typically we go out to dinner or order in and one of my favorites things to eat is pizza. 

Spinach Artichoke Pizza

I would not be exaggerating if I said that I could eat pizza everyday,  that is how much I love it. I prefer just cheese and diced tomatoes but I will experiment. While perusing Pinterest this week I came across this delicious looking, Spinich Artichoke Pizza made by Cooking Classy. I think it would be an excellent way to start my weekend. 

Ragu by Tea and Cookies

Or perhaps a plate of pasta? Another one of my favorite meals. 

Tea and Cookies is one of the first blog that I ever discovered and I love seeing a new post pop up, especially with a little comfort food, like a bowl of Ragu pasta. This looks delicious and is now on my "must try" list. Tea has a new book coming out and I think you need to put it on your list as well as her blog if you are not familiar with it.

Have you ever dreamed of owning a vineyard in Napa, California? Or living there? Or are you just content with visiting? Whatever the case,  Sharon at An Enviable Life by Roses and Rust had a great post this week profiling Kelly Flemming and her family, who live and produce wine in Napa, California. After reading this post and looking at all of the beautiful photos I am itching to plan another trip there ASAP.

I discovered two new to me blogs this week. Plant Propaganda, a beautiful and informative horticultural blog. And Have Some Decorum a witty, unapologetic, mostly interior design blog, written by a Ellie. Ellie suffers from ALS, resides in Paris and lives an adventurous life.

Speaking of Paris, for those of you who will be spending a little time in Paris this spring, make sure to check out this article on where to shop at the markets for luxury goods, HERE.

This week I watched a few movies, here are a couple I thought you might like. My Old Lady, about a man that inherits an apartment in Paris that comes old lady!

It's me Hilary: The Man Who Drew Eloise, a documentary about the man behind the iconic Eloise. Interesting because as he points out he illustrated many other books and the only thing he is known for is Eloise. 

And last but not least, did you see this? It is so cute.  A Seal Pup Befriends Surfer and plays with him for an hour.

I hope that you found something interesting here this week, as always, please share your weekly finds  with me!

Have a fabulous weekend!
