Awesome Life Friday #128

Welcome to Awesome Life Friday!

We're so looking forward to seeing what you've been cooking, creating, growing, decorating, reviewing, giving away, and thinking about this week!

Between Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Jose out there coming behind, I have been so worried and heartsick for everyone along the coastlines to the south.  I know anyone dealing with that is far too busy to be stopping by here, but our thoughts go out to them.  I've been grateful this week for social media that's let those I know in Houston and Florida check in as they're able.

While you're here, leave your posts at the other link up we co-host here - Party in Your PJs!  It starts on Tuesday evenings, and runs through Sunday.  I hope you'll join us there as well!

Here's what we've been up to this past week:

A Week in Santorini, Greece (Pt 1)
Pinup Update - Photo Shoots
Budget Decorations For a First Birthday
Pressure Cooker Chicken Adobo

So, now our favorite part - the FEATURES !  If you're one of our featured posts, we'd love it if you'd grab a button, and thanks to all of you who shared with us last week!

The Laundry Room is Finally Done! // Welch Design Studio
"Today I’m sharing the ugly ‘before’ picture, followed by lots of beautiful ‘after’ pictures."

Using Scarves in Your Decor // Vintage, Paint & More...
"Last year I fell in love with and bought several of the trendy blanket scarves that were out.  So this year when I was going through some things and came across them again I had a "duh moment".  Why not use these to decorate with." 

Ticking Stripe Pillow Pumpkins // Penny's Vintage Home
"I made all the pumpkin pillows in one evening from the comfort of my recliner."

Cream Cheese Danish From Scratch // Little House Living
"How come when you search for a Cream Cheese Danish recipe online all it comes up with is basically a cream cheese mixture folded into a container of crescent rolls? Not my cup of tea. So I set forth to create a Cream Cheese Danish recipe from scratch that was still super yummy."

Coconut Milk Snack Cake // The Monday Box
"Coconut Milk Snack Cake is ideal for after-school snack, coffee breaks, and late night study sessions. Lightly sweet, with a soft, tender texture, this cake is back-to-school fuel!"

Buttery Homemade Cream Puffs // Stone Cottage Adventures
"This recipe comes from a very dear neighbor, Beatrice Mason.  As children we were allowed to ride our horses to her house and she frequently offered drinks and snacks.  Talk about delicious memories!"
