Friday Favorites + a Paleo Summer Recipe!

Friday Favorites + a Paleo Summer Recipe!

Happy Friday!

I’m sure we’re all excited for the weekend.  I know I am.  Although we don’t have much planned I’m just looking forward to relaxing with the fam 🙂  Hopefully indoors where it’s nice and cool since we’ll be up in the 100’s again!  How many days until fall?

We actually had a pretty mellow week which was nice for a change.  Since I’m not teaching 6:00am at the Studio anymore I was able to get a few more days of sleeping in past 5:00 am.  I also had some more time at home in the mornings which allowed me to get some cleaning and organizing done.  Always feels good!

Today I’m sharing a few favorites per usual on a Friday and joining Heather to do so.  I think it’s fun to see what other people are enjoying lately.  So I always make sure to spend some time checking out the posts from fellow bloggers who also link up for the party.  Make sure you keep reading this post in particular as I’m sharing a SUPER yummy, easy to make and in season fruit crisp.


You won’t want to miss it 🙂

Favorite Quote – Sometimes it’s nice to have a reminder to just be happy 🙂

Favorite Early Fall – Like I said, I’m ready for fall!  This gorgeous fall wreath makes me with it would arrive sooner.  We have a black door too and I love the contrast in colors 🙂

Favorite Read – I’m often asked what MTHF is and how it could have affected my fertility.  I’m not very scientific and to be honest, while I read a ton about it, explaining it is somewhat difficult.  there are some great resources out there but this post from Nicole is by far the best explanation of what it is, how it can affect your health and most specifically your fertility!

Favorite DIY – My little kitchen helper isn’t quite tall enough to reach the counter. So for now he kneels on a stool which isn’t really that safe or comfortable.  So this DIY stool looks like something The Hubby could whip up 🙂

Favorite Need to Make – I love me some dill pickles and Claussen has always been my favorite!

Favorite Backyard – We hope to eventually have a fire pit in our backyard and I’d love to have this sign posted by 🙂

Favorite Summertime Treat – Okay as promised here’s that peach blackberry crisp I mentioned above!


It’s seriously so good and so easy!

  1. Yay for sleeping in! I have a couple of days a week in which I don’t have to get up early for classes, and those are nice. And my husband and I would LOVE to have a fire-pit or even a large outdoor area, but that just hasn’t happened for us yet. Enjoy your weekend, pretty lady! 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness, that crisp looks amazing! You post some pretty drool-worthy recipes Giselle! Thank you so much for linking up with Friday Favorites. I hope you enjoy the weekend! xo

      Awe thank you Heather! I think my pictures are so subpar compared to others but try not to compare too much 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

  3. Love this post…that stepping stool is so cute!

    And that crisp is making me hungry!

      The crisp is so good I’m debating on going to the store to get more peaches now to make another 😉

  4. I love that DIY stool!!! I want one! How is Paleo eating going? I have been looking into it because I heard it helps with diabetes. Whether that’s true or not… not sure, but I would love to dig deeper and maybe try it out for my son. Can’t hurt, right?
