Happy Friday, all!
Wow, I kind of thought today would never come. Maybe it was the fact that week 2 of Sugar-Free Jebruary was a complete and total bee-yotch, that made me feel as though the days were crawling by at a snail’s pace.
While clementines and popcorn easily squashed any sugary cravings during the first week, it seemed nothing could quench my desire for chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate this week.
I AM SO READY FOR A FULL SIZE REESE’S EGG IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY.
Ahem! Excuse me! I don’t know what came over me. At any rate, while I wait for tomorrow to come, please enjoy my favorite finds from around the web and beyond, in this week’s Friday Favorites!
Favorite cookies: NYTimes Chocolate Chip Cookies. These chocolate chip cookies are my #1 favorite cookie OF. ALL. TIME. The longer the dough sits in the fridge before baking, the better the cookies get. Bleeeeeerg.
Favorite kitchen tip. Place condiments that won’t fit in the refrigerator door on lazy susans. This would be so helpful to corral all the jam, pickles and butter roaming wild on my shelves.
Favorite outfit. HEART this combo! I’m so into flowy blouses these days.
Favorite soup: Caramelized Balsamic Red Onion Soup with Cheese Topped Croutons. French Onion Soup on ‘roids!
Favorite truth. Ummm, yeah. Like, every Saturday and Sunday…
Favorite seasonal treat: Hot Cocoa Cookies. Now that we’ve finally got some snow on the ground, these hot cocoa-inspired sweet treats sound sooo yummy.
Favorite geek need: Cable Clips. This sounds ridiculous, but nothing annoys me more than when I unplug a cord from my laptop and it falls off the table and onto the floor. Just one of those things!
Favorite place: Alesund, Norway. Perfectly picturesque!
Favorite look: Floral Dress from Express. Perfect for a warm weather Spring Break vacation?!
Favorite easy treat: Cheesecake Crackers. Stir softened cream cheese with fruity jam, and spread on graham crackers. The longer you let it sit, the more the cracker will soften, mimicking real cheesecake.
Favorite DIY: Chevron Prints. I’ve been loving chevron lately, and think these would be a great accent for the guest bedroom.
Favorite funny. Pretty much what I want to do to every printer I’ve ever met.
Favorite idea. Make a heart cake for Valentine’s Day with 1 circle cake cut in half, and a regular square cake. Genius!
Favorite wow: Thorn Crown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. You have to checkout these pictures. What an amazing place!
Favorite hell yes: Peanut Butter Cereal Treats. Use Peanut Butter Captain Crunch instead of Rice Krispie treats – awwwww yeah.
Favorite find: Essie “Meet Me at Sunset”. I bought this at Target last weekend and adore the shade. Bright, bright orange!
Favorite escape: Cafe Escapes Chai Latte. I cannot express to you how insanely delicious, sweet and spicy these babies are. I am OBSESSED! PS Get 15% off your GreenMountainCoffee.com order, plus free shipping, until February 29th with code AM0016-3592 at checkout.
Favorite picture: 6-Layer Rich Chocolate Malted & Toasted-Marshmallow Cake. Per-fec-tion!
