This weekend we’re heading down to Savannah! Even though most of my Friday will be spent in meetings (but fun new projects on the horizon meetings) I’m still carving out a little me time by ways of a book and a pool deck! P.S. anyone have any podcast suggestions for the treacherous trip down I-16 to get to Savannah?  by @dashacrawfordphoto #darlingitssummertime •••••

Good morning from the sunny-side up life! Whipping up some breakfast skillets using some potatoes, green peppers and loads of @Tillamook’s Habanero Jack Cheddar and some Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese. The egg is cooked right in the middle of these personal skillets making this an easy one pan dish for breakfast! If you don’t have mini cast irons you can always use one giant cast iron, just make sure to give each egg about two inches between the other so it has space to properly cook in. The best thing is the spice from the Habanero Jack Cheddar #TillamookCheese is just the thing you need in the morning to wake you up! Swipe left to see how delicious this cheese pull is! #darlingEats #Tillamook_Partner

Currently dreaming of all the florals I’ll be buying at the farmers market this weekend. It’s #payday !

What’s a girl to do when she wants French fries but also want to eat healthy? Make some faux fries with zucchini! I have to say, the first time I made them they turned out to be mush and all of the breading stuck to the baking sheet. This time I’m using @pamcookingsprayofficial new Spray Pump Canola Oil and one other little cooking hack to get the crispiest zucchini fries on the internet. You won’t even miss the spud version! Head to the link in my profile just to see how easy this recipe is to make for yourself! #darlingEats #YouPAMdoit #ad

My sister and I try to catch up in person once a month over dinner, but it’s been OVER TWO months since we saw each other so we decided to go all out at @chidoandpadres tonight. Not only was the decor aesthetically pleasing (hello rattan ceiling pendants and bistro lights), but the food was delicious. I had the enchilada des camarones filled with a cilantro rice and doused in a savory enchilada sauce and my sister had the fresh market fish tacos! Thoroughly recommend making this a stop! #darlingATL •••

My @visitaugusta travel guide is finally live on Darling Down South! I normally just pass through this town on my way to Charleston (mainly for @newmooncafe) but after one of my best friends moved back home I decided to make a weekend of it! Augusta exceeded my expectations in so many ways, between the restaurants and the beautiful neighborhoods, there are so many things to do outside of the Masters golf tournament in this town!

Can’t get enough of this beauty in Midtown. When you think of the heart of Atlanta, it’s surprising to find out that there are charmers like this hanging out two blocks away from skyscrapers. #darlingATL •

#ad When life gives you rain clouds, you find an indoor garden pool and layout on your @verabradley beach towel! It might be a rainy day in June but I'm not letting a little overcast weather rain on my summer parade! #VeraBradley always equips me with the most functional and colorful accessories to put me in the summer frame of mind. It's purely coincidental that I chose to match my bikini to my Hacienda print beach towel and I love that the Straw Beach Tote holds all of my pool accessories, like my extra-large book, and it has pockets to stash my phone in! Head to my Instagram stories to see more of my favorite items from Vera Bradley and go to the link in my profile to shop these items yourself! #darlingitssummertime  by @dashacrawfordphoto #poolseason #gardenoasis #sweetsummertime #preppy #atlantablogger #southernblogger #summerstateofmind #poolday #summerstyle #beachware #bohostyle #jcrewstyle #poolside #poolparty

Today marked the end of the @hgtv smart home giveaway that I had the pleasure of seeing in person in Palmetto Bluff last month! I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be the owner of this beautifully designed abode by @tiffanybrooksinteriors, but if not me I hope one of you win so that I can live vicariously through your adventures in Palmetto Bluff! Be honest, how many entries did you put in? #downsouthhome  #slhomes #clpicks #palmettobluff #currenthomeview #thenewsouthern #smmakelifebeautiful #thedecorsocial #lovewhereyoudwell #hgtv #mybhg #designsponge #smallspacesquad #mybohoabode #modernrustic #howwedwell #makehomeyours #hgtvsmarthome

Happy #NationalCheeseDay! This may be the greatest food holiday because it allows me to celebrate with a double @tillamook cheeseburger that we fired up for dinner. The best part of making this was watching the #TillamookCheese melt to perfection between the double patties and then slapping some bread and butter pickles on top for a little sweet and sour punch. The Tillamook sharp cheddar was so flavorful on the burger I didn’t even need to add any condiments- just pure cheesy red meat deliciousness. Head to my Tillamook story highlight (cow emoji) to see some behind the scenes of making this dish and then go to the link in my profile to see where you can get Tillamook for your next backyard barbecue! #darlingEats #Tillamook_Partner

Normally I’m a fan of painted front doors as an accent on a house, but this dusty blue home with a natural wood door is filling me with enough aesthetically pleasing vibes I don’t mind! P.S. can any of you spot the unique feature on this welcoming area? #downsouthhome #doorsworldwide #doorsoftheworld #frontporch #slhomes #clpicks #blueandwhite #curbappeal #smmakelifebeautiful #currenthomeview #loveaugusta #realhomes #mybhg

I'm a big proponent of the three day weekend that leads into a four day work week. I've been politely (and to my excitement) reminded that today is Thursday when I thought it was Wednesday so I think that I can officially go celebrate with a tall pour of rosé from the most aesthetically pleasing bar in Atlanta, @lingeringshade. If you haven't been, it's what shiplap and hale navy dreams are made of complete with bistro chairs, ample natural light and some excellent Beltline people watching opportunities. #darlingATL

Childhood guilty pleasure: Cheese Its. Adult adaptation: spicy, crunchy, crumbly cheese straws! These cheese straws are packed with over 10 ounces of @Tillamook Sharp Cheddar and the best part- you can make them ahead of time, freeze, them, then bake them when you want to eat them! The hardest thing about this recipe was cranking the cookie press I used to get the shape just right, but I'll count that effort towards more justification for eating another one of these before the weekend hits. Head to my story to watch how this recipe came together and head to the link in my profile to find out where #TillamookCheese is sold near you make them for yourself! #Tillamook_Partner #darlingEats ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Happy Memorial Day. Thankful for all of those who have served to protect our country to pave a brighter future ahead for the rest of us. Beaufort SC knows how to show off how good an American flag should look on Memorial Day Weekend. #darlingtraveling

Nothing's sweeter than summer (not even this donut) but I do love that my @neutrogena Nude Pink MoistureSmooth Color Stick matches in sweetness and color to one of my favorite summertime treats! Now that summer is here, I had to stock up on my SPF rich #Neutrogenamakeup at @riteaid with their $10 bonus cash offer going on today and tomorrow when you buy 2 #Neutrogena items! I figure now is the best time to stock up on my favorite color sticks and more healthy skin compacts because both are high in SPF making me feel a little less guilty for spending all day outside! #neutrogenapartner #riteaidbeauty #neutrogenaxriteaid  by @dashacrawfordphoto
