Friday Favorites

What a weird week! My routine was totally messed up because I took Monday and Tuesday off work to recover from dental surgery. On top of that, the weather has been ridiculous in Taiwan, with extreme torrential rains causing flooding and school closures on Tuesday. And I read that a typhoon might be heading this way soon, too. Don't even get me started on all the earthquakes recently.

On a happy note; It's Friday! I wanted to share some random favorites from this past week. 

Homemade banana ice cream
I pinned this idea on Pinterest a while back, and made it for the first time this week. Banana ice cream using ONLY bananas. (Find the recipe here.) It's so easy, and so delicious, and I don't know why I haven't thought of this before!? In my opinion, it's the perfect summer snack!

Summer vacation is booked
Mykonos, Greece
The Boyfriend and I paid our flight tickets for our summer vacation on Monday. Nothing like having those babies in your hand, and having a great vacation to look forward to. This summer, we will be going on a 12-day cruise of the Mediterranean, visiting Italy, Greece, Monaco, Turkey and Spain. After the cruise, we will spend 3 days in Barcelona before flying to the United Arab Emirates to visit my sister in Dubai for another 10 days. Can't wait!

Revisiting favorite TV shows from the '90s

Somehow The Boyfriend and I started talking about shows that we used to watch as kids. Of course, Rescue 911 and Baywatch came up. I mean, who doesn't know the theme song from Rescue 911, or remember the cast from Baywatch!? We watched a few episodes on and it was amazingly awful, but we really got a kick out of it. Man, I miss the '90s!

Best thing I read this week
(Sorry, this is the best copy I could find. Try the "Zoom" tool on your computer. )
If you love the TV show, Friends, you will definitely enjoy this one; "Everything I know in life I learned from Friends".
