Ask Amy! Things I’m Loving Lately

Ask Amy!

Hi guys!  Today I'm back with another Ask Amy! edition.  I have teamed up with some fellow bloggers to tell you about things I'm loving lately.  If you are hopping over here from another blog spot, welcome!  I'm so glad you came! If you missed my last Ask Amy! 25 Things About Me, then you can catch up on it HERE and learn way more about me than you probably wanted to know! 🙂

OK, so things I'm loving lately!

1. Blogs I'm Loving: I have several blogs that I follow on a daily basis.  Here are the ones that I read religiously.

Driven by Decor, Casa Watkins, Organize NashvilleAround the Watts House, Living in Yellow, Cupcakes & Cashmere, Life with Emily, Two Purple Couches, Eclectically Vintage

I love that each is so different!  Some are life style, some home decor, some fashion and if I want to get my craft on, then Two Purple Couches is a must!

2. Clothes I'm wearing: I am loving the whole plaid trend and am wearing plaid scarves with everything!


3. Things I'm buying: I am busy buying things to go with my new kitchen makeover.  If you missed my huge DIY project where I painted my cabinets, you can read all about the project,  HERE.  & HERE.


My most recent purchase was this cow.  Isn't he the cutest!  I thought he might be good for holding an apron or maybe one on each ear!


He was purchased at my local Homegoods!

4. Books I'm loving: You recently heard all about  my book rut.  So, I am working on getting back at it.  My favorite book of the year so far is Kristin Hannah's, Nightingale.  My complete review is a post of its own!

5. Shows We're Watching: These are my shows (and I like my tv!) whether they are on now or will be coming back soon!

Walking Dead & Fear of the Dead: AMC, Downton Abby: BBC, Peaky Blinders: BBC (Netflix), Modern Family: ABC, Daredevil: Netflix Original, House of Cards: Netflix Original, Fixer Upper: HGTV, Game of Thrones: HBO

I love to talk tv, so shoot me a message so we can rehash the episodes together!!

6. Recipes I'm Making: Our family favorite is a Sausage and Rice Casserole.  I make it about 2x a month at least.  It's a super easy kid- friendly recipe which always pleases.


Another family friendly recipe I made lately was called, Manwich Tator Tot Casserole from Have Fun Saving.  I like a kick so we used the Bold Manwich  instead of the Original.  Everyone liked this easy weeknight dinner, so we will probably be making this again soon!

  2. O.M.G.! I loved everything!!! That scarf!!! That COW! EEE! So cute!! Thanks for joining us!!! xo!

  3. Thanks for the shout out Amy!!! Loving the plaid scarfs. I’m big on scarfs but for swim reason haven’t been rocking them yet. Perhaps because the weather keeps flip flopping.?

  4. Thanks for the shout-out Amy 😀 I love your new cow purchase, and I think s/he will look adorable holding an apron or two. I am counting down the days until Season 3 of Fixer Upper hits HGTV. I miss my weekly dose of Chip & JoJo!! Have a wonderful weekend 😀

  5. I LOVE all the things you love too! Your plaid scarves are gorgeous and I have to get me one of those cows; where did you find him?! I think my boys would really like that tater tot casserole. Thanks for all the great ideas here Amy!
