Friday Favs 9

It's Friday!  I'm pumped for a half-day at work and looking forward to some fun plans this weekend.  Hope your week has been great, here's some things that rocked my world in the last seven days.

Fav #1
Walmart's Marketside Chipotle Ranch Yogurt dressing. I first discovered Marketside's Chipotle Ranch dressing in the Marketside Southwest Chopped Salad (which is also fabulous). In fact, its so fabulous that I sometimes run into Walmart specifically for just that salad, even though I grocery shop elsewhere.  The chopped salad comes in a bag with all the ingredients needed for a yummy, spicy, crunchy salad--chopped lettuce, cabbage, crunchy jalapenos, and this amazing dressing.  I love the salad, it's SOO good, but I don't love the full-fat dressing.  So I was super excited to learn that they make a yogurt-based version of the dressing!  Once I saw that, I changed our dinner plans and made a big salad that night so I could try it.  It's a bit thinner than the original, but all the flavor is there.  It's awesome, and only 25 calories and one gram of fat per serving.  It's my new go-to salad dressing!

Fav #2
Gold Leaf.  I've been wanting to gold leaf something for a long time, and this week I got my first shot. I bought Mona Lisa Gold Leaf Kit, which included the adhesive and sealer.  That stuff is amazing! And really easy!  I'll be debuting my project in the next few days, but right now I'm trying to figure out what I can gold leaf next!  The cats had better ruuunnn.....

Fav #3
Rugs USA.  I can't believe I haven't told you about Rugs USA yet!! This is where I get all of our area rugs, because I cannot find cooler rugs or better prices anywhere. First and foremost, Rugs USA ships free everyday.  With a giant area rug, this is huge.  But even better, they consistently have HUGE sales.  I'm talking sales in excess of 50%.  In fact, when I find a rug I'm interested in, I don't buy it until they are having a sale that is at least 60% off, which happens several times a year.  I love that there are plenty of modern, graphic rugs to choose from, but if your style has more of a traditional tilt, there are plenty of rugs to suit as well.  Additionally, Rugs USA offers plenty of customer reviews for each rug they carry, so you can really research your purchase prior to ordering.  I could do a whole post on all of the rugs that I'm currently loving (and maybe someday I will), but here are two of my favorites right now.  Seriously, if you are in the market for an area rug, CHECK THEM OUT.

Fav #4
Desert Domicile blog.  I have such a blog-crush on Caitlin's home!  You must check her out.  Her style is so unique, creative, and fun!  Check out her studded front door. Or the floating wooden shelves she built in her bathroom.  Or any of her other awesome projects. She's so fab!  When you have a few minutes (Or hours.  Because if you're like me, you may fall down the rabbit-hole of navigating all of her fantastic posts, and will spend all night there.) show her blog some love.  You'll be so glad you did!

Have an amazing weekend!!
