Howdy, all, and happy Friday! :D

I kicked my day off with a 6:42am segment on KCCI News , where I made Key West Grilled Chicken Sandwiches with Grilled Avocados for a healthy Labor Day grilling option!

This sandwich is inspired by the Key West Grilled Chicken with Cilantro-Lime Cauliflower Rice I made a few months ago, but I think I like it even better on a squishy, toasted bun. So yum!

I also made Grilled Avocados – cut avocados brushed with extra virgin olive oil and lime juice, then grilled on each side for 5 minutes, or until they’re warm and creamy. AHHH!

I have to say, the bonus of getting up early to do the 6:00 news is that I’m now showered, make up’d and ready for the day. Hope to blast through some admin stuff, then get started on a project I’ve been procrastinating for months – nay, years! Crossing my fingers that it actually gets done, and I have something awesome to show you next week.

In the meantime, I hope you have a fantastic, loooong Labor Day weekend (got any awesome plans?) and please enjoy my favorite finds from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites! :D

Favorite cute: Mini Grill Cupcakes . OMG how adorable! You have to see how these cupcakes that look like little baby grills are assembled. Perfect for Labor Day!

Favorite pooch . I CANNOT even handle the cuteness. Cannot even.

Favorite vantage point . Fantastic wedding day photo opp!

Favorite view . This is so sweet to me for some reason. :)

Favorite indulge: French Toast Dumplings . I cannot imagine how insane these gooey, sweet dumplings taste. Holy cow!

Favorite recipe: Greek Macaroni and Cheese with Roast Garlic . Yep. Another mac & cheese recipe. Sorry, but roasted garlic?! I had to!

Favorite keepsake: Coin Art . Fantastic idea for displaying all the foreign coins you have from international vacations, and a great way to remember them every time you pass by!

Favorite place . Lake? Check. Lounge chairs? Check. Fire? Check. BEER? CHECK! I’ll be here if ya’ need me. :)

Favorite dip: Hot Corn Dip . Two words – TAILGATING. FOOD.

Favorite tip: How To Style a Bookcase . Seems so simple, but yes, I DO need a tutorial for this kind of thing!

Favorite find: Little Green Pouch . Ok, this is actually for all the Mamma’s & Papa’s out there. Although I don’t have any children, I thought this was too cool not to share – a reusable food pouch for pureed foods! Awesome!

Favorite fresh: Nectarine Caprese with Honey Balsamic Reduction . The colors, the nectarines, the cheese, the HONEY BALSAMIC DRIZZLE.

Favorite room . Want everything about this room from the rug, to the ottoman, to the cozy, squishy chair.

Favorite sip: Naked Coconut Water . Naked (tee hee) sent me a few of these 100% coconut waters to try a few weeks ago, and they’ve now become a regular purchase for both Ben and I at the grocery store. They’re SO refreshing and thirst quenching!

Favorite slurp: Crock Pot Minestrone Soup . Hearty, flavorful, AND made in a crock pot. What’s not to love?

Favorite place: Paris . I feel both cliché, and like a broken record saying this, but, oh Paris! Take me away!

Favorite DIY: DIY Wainscoting . You will never guess what this wainscoting is made of. Just. Brilliant! SO much easier than measuring, sawing, nailing, praying…
