Friday Favorites from Messy Nessy Chic, The Simple Luxurious Life, Fast company, The Brown Eyed Bake and More

Good morning! I hope that you had a great week! Mine was great, a little family time, a little work, and a little road trip. There may have also been some tasty treats and scrumptious meals as well. 

Skillet Cheeseburgers from The Brown Eyed Baker

Warmer weather means grilling, picnics, and dinners on the deck with lots of easy, tasty comfort food. Burgers are one of my all time favorite summer meals.  Should you find yourself craving a burger on a rainy, summer day, these Cast Iron Skillet Cheeseburger from the Brown Eyed Baker  would be perfect!

Blueberry Muffin Cake from Cookies and Cups

Looking for a breakfast treat to start the weekend? I think this Blueberry Muffin Cake from Cookies and Cups would be delicious!

Or maybe these Blueberry Crumb Bars?

Any plans for a trip to New York in your future? If so check out NYC's Most Secret Places from Messy Nessy Chic.

Love this list of 39 Ways to close out your email  from PR Daily!

Celebrate the Obstacles a podcast by Shannon of The Simple Luxurious Life  is full of reminders that we could all use once in awhile. 

What interesting things did you discover this week? A new blog, book, movie or article? Please share your finds!

Have a happy and safe weekend.
