Loving Lately Part 8

 Hi Friends! I can not wait to share what I’ve been loving lately! If you’re new to my blog, I like to share about things that I have been “loving lately.” It can be recipes, outfits, places, people, etc. 

This time I’ll be sharing a delicious recipe- probably the best ever. So I make a delicious macaroni and cheese (if I may humbly say) I usually get asked to make it for Thanksgiving. I decided to make it for a church luncheon this past weekend and it was definitely a hit. 

I occasionally switch up the cheeses I use but it always turns out delicious no matter what. 

Here’s what I used this time.

Elbow pasta

8 oz of cheddar cheese

8 oz of gruyere cheese

Three quarters of the cottage cheese container of a 16 oz 

Lots of butter that I grate and sprinkle and mix in with cheese

Enough Whole milk to cover all of the pasta- it depends on the container and how much macaroni you’re making. I made a 9×13 dish so I use a pint. 

Salt, a tablespoon of cumin and nutmeg

Mix and bake on 350 for about 45 minutes 


Next up is a blogger Mary and Crew and my oh my! How I have been loving her account! She is currently overcoming a battle with cancer but her spirit is always positive and inspiring. She has 3 little adorable children and the cutest account ever! She’s a fellow design enthusiast and her taste is impeccable. I recently discovered her through another blogger and I’m so glad that I did! She also collaborated with Breck and Grier and created the prettiest straw totes- yep, you may have seen them and have already gotten one for yourself.

Next is my new favorite fuschia/purplish dress 💜 I’m so in love with this dress y’all- it is soooo good and soooo comfortable and soooo flowy and soooo perfect for summertime! I can NOT recommend this dress enough! It is currently on sale 40% making it less than $60. Use code SUMMER when you checkout. It does run roomy which is perfect fine for me. 

Last but not least, is a glass cup that’s only $12! It’s a juice glass but I drink water, iced coffee and kombucha from it. It’s so pretty and delicate and comes in multiple patterns. But of course, it’s strawberries 🍓 for me please! It also has coordinating flowers etched on it that are just stunning. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I can’t wait to share my next “loving lately!” 

Hugs from Florida,
