Friday Favorites


Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and Christmas is only 37 days away? I seriously need to get cracking on my shopping! Have you started yet?

In the meantime, here’s a wrap up of my favorite finds from around the web! :D

Favorite thing this week: TWILIGHT BREAKING DAWN OPENS TODAY!!!! I adore Kristen’s dress at the London premiere!


Favorite picture: Salted Caramel Six Layer Chocolate Cake. Incredible amounts of intense perfection in every single way.


Favorite home decor: Map candles. Kind of a cool twist on having a globe out or something.


Favorite sight. On the way to my log cabin in the wilderness. :)


Favorite 5 minute treat: Coffee Cake in a Cup. I cannot wait to try this.


Favorite prints: From A Vintage Poster. The posters from this designer are soooo adorable.

Favorite soup: Slow Cooker Italian Sausage Meatball Soup. Sounds so yummy, plus I just love this picture. The meatballs are so uniform and perfect!


Favorite cheap DIY decor: Glittery $1 store fruit. Just spray paint with glitter paint, or brush with glue and add glitter.


Favorite bag: Michael Kors Hamilton Tote. Adore.


Favorite feel good photo. ‘Tis the season!


Favorite Thanksgiving side dish idea: Cheesy Corn Casserole. I was this close to making this for the week of Thanksgiving favorites!


Favorite vintage find. Doesn’t this LV trunk look amazing?!


Favorite clever dish: Grilled Cheese Rolls. Adorable!!!


Favorite workout. Seems butt kicking, but doable.


Favorite unexpected delight: Cinnamon Roll Crust. This is one of the coolest things I’ve seen since those cupcakes with a built in milk dunking cup!


Favorite giggle. Tee hee, this is so cool. :)


Favorite escape: Shipwreck Beach, Greece. I want to go to there.


Favorite space saving idea. Use an appetizer stand in the bathroom to corral clutter.


Friday night favorite: Buffalo Chicken Nachos. I am especially pleased that this recipe calls for Cool Ranch Doritos. :)

    I love grilled cheese. Will have to make those rolls with some tomato soup. :) Oh and that chocolate cake…. Can’t imagine how many calories are in that slab, but I’m sure it would be worth it.

  10. Pat 11.18.2011

    I am happy to say I own the Michael Kors bag and love, love, love it! It was a big purchase but I use it every day so that averages out, right?

  11. Lynette 11.18.2011

    This was one of your best “friday favorites” if you ask me :-)
    I especially like the cinnamon roll pie crust idea and the “workout” twice a day! Thank you and have a great weekend! Lynette

  12. Lisa 11.18.2011

    going to do the workout, but whats a headlift?

  13. Ty 11.18.2011

    I’m drooling over that dress… And that corn casserole.

    I want to wear that dress while I eat that corn casserole.


  14. Love these Friday Faves! I saw those sparkly DIY fruit on pinterest and definitely want to do them!

  15. Nicole G 11.18.2011

    Ok, that coffee cake in a cup looks amazing. I am trying this out tonight! After I try out making Maid Rites from your recipe. Hope the kids like them!

    Oh, and saw Breaking Dawn Part 1 this morning! The hubs and I were supposed to go and then have lunch but he was sick today and since we had already ordered non-refundable tickets, I made sure he was snug in bed and had everything he needed then I went to see it by myself. First time ever going to the movies alone. It would’ve been more fun to see it with him, but it was really good!!! Definitely the most romantic of the Twilight series and intense!!!

  16. The Salted Caramel Chocolate cake…OH EM GEE!
    How cool is the Cinnamon Roll crust?! That is a MUST TRY!
    Also, with our house filling up this next week- I am definitely making the buffalo chicken nachos!!
    Thanks for the great ideas IGE!

    Where did you find the Disney picture? Did it have a link to a website to find those clothes?! I love Disney (too much for a 28 year old), and love the princess and would love to stylishly dress like one.

  45. I’m catching up on your posts so forgive my 8 days late comment. I have never seen your Friday favorites but I really, really loved this post. I’ve done one “Favorite Things” post on my blog and was so worried that no one would care what I ‘liked’ so I haven’t sone another one…but after seeing this I am completely inspired again!!!

  46. Courtney 12.25.2011

    Where on earth did you find that appetizer stand?! I’m in love!

  47. […] – You can see the picture at Iowa Girl Eats. This is a very easy craft. Simply brush with glue, sprinkle with glitter, and let dry! Then […]
