High Five for Friday! (plus a few extra favorites)

Here are my 5 favorite things from this week...

1. Easter Sunday

2. Coconut Cake
I completely surprised my dad on Easter Sunday and made my Grandma's coconut cake.
He loved it and said that it tasted just like her's.  I think that is the highest compliment a baker can receive.  

3. "Sunday's Coming"
I know this video is like a week late...but it is SO good!

4.  Wedding with Friends

5. Brunch
On Saturday, we got to have brunch at one of our favorite restaurants.
Taverna is absolutely fabulous!  Great food and atmosphere!
Of course, we had to order beignets with our meal.  :)

And...since I haven't been able to post a High Five for Friday post in a few weeks...
Here are a few of my favorite things from the weeks I missed.

Cadaver Ball
First of all....Cadaver Ball is a ball/formal/party that the 1st year medical students host in honor of the 2nd year medical students.
Second of all...yes, I agree that is a horrible name for a ball/formal/party.  And yes, I do think that a guy came up with that name.
Lastly, I absolutely adore this picture of Jason and me.  

Sailing with Friends
A few Sundays ago, we were pleasantly surprised with an invitation to go sailing with some friends from church.
It was fabulous!  It was so nice to relax on the lake.  A perfect Sunday if you ask me.

Cookies and Cream Brownies
A few weeks ago, Jess posted the recipe for these brownies.
As soon as I saw it, I knew that I had to make them.  They looked delicious!
Well...let me tell you...they taste just as good as they look.  So yummy!
You should head on over to Jess's blog, Messy Jess C., and try out the recipe.
