Friday Links

Friday LinksWell happy Friday friends! If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been traveling a bit. I’m gearing up to head back to NYC tomorrow for Martha’s American Made Summit and am SO excited. If I’m not back on Monday, it’s because I met Martha and died of happiness. Cover my tombstone in glitter. Hopefully you are gearing up for a fun weekend yourself! While you’re out and about, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

Trail Mix Popcorn Recipe

trail mix popcorn recipePopcorn is absolutely my go to snack. And while salt and butter will always be a classic staple, sometimes it’s fun to mix it up and try something new! This trail mix popcorn recipe is the easiest (you’re seriously just adding ingredients to the same bowl), but it’s also super tasty, especially if you love salty/sweet combos! Here’s how you make it:

What you’ll need:

– Popcorn (I use an air popper instead of a microwave)

– Sunflower Seeds

– Raisins or other dried fruit

– M&Ms

– Optional: peanuts or almonds

Make your popcorn in a large bowl then add your ingredients. How much of each additive is really up to your personal preference. I found that equal parts M&Ms to raisins was ideal. Mix up and you’re ready to eat! Seriously, that easy!

10 Gorgeous Dining Rooms

10 Gorgeous Dining Room Spaces[Source]

My dining room is the last room in my home to get a makeover, so naturally I’ve been scouring books, magazines, and Pinterest trying to figure out which route I’d like to take with the space. I’d love to be able to throw dinner parties, so a lot of focus will be on the dining room table, but I don’t want to overlook the rest of the space.

After finding these ten gorgeous spaces, I’m full of so many ideas (a big hello to big chairs!). I’m also considering a fun wall color or heck, even wallpaper. I’d love to know for future planning, which one of these rooms is your favorite?
