I’m still in shock that it’s really 2012, although the reality is setting in now that all the Christmas decorations are down, and plans for spring break are underway. Onward, right?!
Hope your short week went fast and a weekend full of fun is on the horizon. In the meantime, here are my favorite finds from around the web this week, for your viewing pleasure!
Favorite sweet treat: Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes. A flattened cinnamon roll “crust” is filled with sauteed apples and topped with streusel. BAHAHA – OMG!
Favorite thing, maybe ever: Iowa Nice. I have watched this video at least a dozen times, and laugh harder each and every time. GO IOWA! (Not work appropriate, or for people who get offended by swearing. Dad, I’m looking at you. Click here for clean version.)
Favorite learn: Silhouette Tutorial. Love this easy photoshop tutorial for creating classic and out of the box silhouettes.
Favorite slurp: Chicken Bacon & Wild Rice Soup. Mmmm – this might make an appearance on Soup Sundays very soon.
Favorite outrageous idea: Buttercream Truffles. You need to see these. Mind melting!
Favorite party nosh: 7 Layer Dip Cups. There’s nothing nastier than the community 7 layer dip dish at a party or get together, right? This is such a cute solution.
Favorite funny. I think I laughed for 18 minutes the first time I saw this. Winner!!!
Favorite splurge: Classic Q Little Ukita Marc Jacobs Bag. I have never been a shoe or bag girl – I’d rather spend my money on Dairy Queen, for instance – but lately I have been obsessed with purses. This one is the perfect size!
Favorite bling: Quintessentially Blue Necklace. Love the retro feel of this piece.
Favorite time suck: All Thing Europe Tumblr site. You’ll see.

Favorite home accent: Industrial Pipe Shelf. One of these will be in my future dream home.
Favorite crock pot recipe: Chicken Caesar Sandwiches. I cannot wait to try these!
Favorite outfit. I am obsessed with navy and coral right now.
Favorite furballs. No words.
Favorite sip: Skinny Mango Margaritas. Muy bueno! (thanks reader Michelle for passing along!)
Favorite kitchen helper: Dual Stand Up Spoon Rests. I need this! My spoons and whisks are forever rolling off my standard, flat spoon rest!
Favorite dessert: Peanut Butter Pie. My Mom made this again for Christmas this year and – pardon my French, but – OMFG.
Have super weekend everyone! Toodles!
