links + small things

Green Eye Moment

Y’all may know if you follow along on instagram that I’ve been cooking so many Half Baked Harvest recipes recently. I believe I discovered Tieghan through Brighton Butler.

A few of my personal favorites:

Burrata Caesar Salad Pizza

One Pot Melty Burrata Lemon Pesto Pasta

Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken and Avocado Bacon Salad

Simple Baked Cheesy Italian Chicken Meatballs

I also love the lists she makes of her favorite recipes, or the most popular ones!

The only pair of shoes I brought on my two day planning session with Amanda were these boots. I am *so* happy with this purchase and absolutely love how they fit.

A pretty blue support tank that could be worn as a longline bra for low-impact workouts.

I wear my ugg slippers every single day.

A rain boot that isn’t clunky.

And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed:

Where did you get that beautiful camel color clutch shown in the picture above with your drink? Want one!

Jess says · 01.23.22

Me too! Love the look of that clutch!

Tracy D says · 01.23.22

Yes! Details on the beautiful clutch please!

I did an image search and it is the Amara Wristlet from Anthropologie. Not a current item, unfortunately.

I have been on a major Half Baked Harvest kick too! We made the Cheesy meatballs this week too and they are SO GOOD.

Your blog content is not like it used to be. From your posts it seems like you are engaging more on Instagram? If that works for you, great but I feel like you are just posting here as an afterthought and Instagram does not work for me so if that is the direction you are going (which is fine, you do you) let us know and and I will unsubscribe.

I don’t think Kate is treating this blog as an afterthought, quite the opposite actually. It’s obvious she’s put a lot of work and heart into revamping her blog site. The new format is great and she hasn’t seemed to post any less. Keep it up Kate, I love your blog posts especially Friday’s links + thing 🙂

Thank you Shelley!

Please share “360” pictures of new cut! I love it. I desperately need a good trim and would love to do something similar. Please share the details of the cut too!!!
