Happy Friday everyone!
Well it’s Christmas Eve eve, and the anticipation of gift giving, spending time with family, and a looming vacation has turned me into a giddy school child, but at the same time, I can’t believe the holidays are almost over!
I mean, we still have our pumpkins from Halloween in the garage!
No, I know.
But seriously, where has the time gone? 2011 was definitely one of the fastest years of my life, and I am so excited for 2012 to begin. I feel like I have NO idea what is on the horizon, which is very, very exciting.
Anyways, I’ll save it for the obligatory 2011 recap post in about a week.
In the meantime, here are my favorite finds from around the web this week!
Favorite. Video. Ever.: Sh!t Girls Say. I have seriously watched this video at least 50 times and I find something new and hysterical – like, milk shooting out of your nose hysterical – every single time I watch it. Here’s episode 2 (which might be even funnier!)
Favorite “why didn’t I think of that?”: Cinnamon Toast Crunch Krispies. My favorite cereal on earth in krispie form!
Favorite wrist bling: Michael Kors Runway Rose Gold Watch. I tried this on the other day at Nordy’s and almost died. It is SO beautiful!
Favorite moment. ’nuff said.
Favorite getaway. If you ever see me lounging in a hammock hanging from a palm tree over the ocean, slap me. Then get me a pina colada.
or one of these…
Favorite sip: Skinny Clementine Martini. Perfect for those cuties that are now in season.
Favorite switch up: Cheese Enchilada Stacks. An easier, cooler way to serve enchiladas.
Favorite DIY project (for next year!): Retro Bulb Wreath. I am obsessed with this look!
Favorite party dress: ASOS Tulip Dress. They also have this in Navy. I can’t decide which one’s cuter.
Favorite Sunday supper: Ricotta Dumplings with Chevre & Herbs. Thinking I can turn my luck around with ricotta dumplings with this recipe. Plus it’s got chevre, so even it it bombs…I still have chevre!
Favorite knock out holiday dessert: Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cake with White Chocolate Candy Cane Ganache. AHHH!!!
Favorite furball. I think…I want a dog! Ben and I are going to discuss after the holidays!
Favorite festive pumps: Sofia Vergara Women’s Tipsy Red Carpet Pump from – get ready for it – KMART! These are SO cute!
Favorite Christmas morning breakfast: Breakfast Sausage Casserole. I made this for Thanksgiving morning two years ago, and it was a HIT. I subbed in maple breakfast sausage for regular, used 6 eggs instead of 4, and added in black pepper and green onion. WINNING!
Favorite festive serving platter: DIY Mint Platters. You have to check these out – they’d be perfect for Christmas or New Years!
And with that, I am out! Wishing you all a very merry Christmas, happy holiday and spectacular new year!
