Happy Friday everyone!

After a nutty week, I am THIS HAPPY that the freakin’ weekend has arrived! I plan ninja kicking my to-do list today, so I can drink wine and craft for the rest of the weekend. Yeah, I fell hard for craft/DIY blogs this week and have a zillion things I want to make/do around the house. Ben’s scared.

Favorite OMG dessert: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake. There’s something about cookie dough studded icing stuffed between two layers of cake, then frosted and stuck with more cookies on the side that really does it for me.


Favorite mason jar project (yes, this is practically its own category now!): Spray Painted Vase. I’m totally doing this for a spring themed mantel.


Favorite easy treat: No Bake Peanut Butter Bars. Supposedly these taste just like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!


Favorite kitchen decor idea: Framed Handwritten Recipes. I’m going to see if I can do this with some of Ben’s Grandma’s recipe cards and books.


Faaavorite holiday decor idea: Boxwood Wreath. I HEART THESE WREATHS, which are just fake boxwood wrapped and glued around sewing/cross stitch frames (or whatever the heck those are called! ;) )


Favorite furballs. CANNOT stop laughing over these two!! ;)

Favorite find: Asos. Affordable, adorable dresses and clothes for very good prices. Plus they have petite sizes AND free shipping both ways.


Favorite appetizer: Drunken Grapes with Goat Cheese. Bourbon-soaked grapes skewered with warm goat cheese balls. Yes please!


Favorite escape. Can I just hole up here for a couple weeks?


Favorite mmmmanly meal: Long Boy Burgers. Like a cross between a burger and meatloaf. Ben would go crazy for these.


Favorite picture. I love everything about this scene.


Favorite little helpers. “Excuse me, we were told there’d be milk & cookies?”


Favorite serene scene: Saas Fee, Switzerland. Hey I can admire a beautiful, pristine snowfall – just as long as it’s not out my own window!


Favorite couple. I always make Ben help me with the “snow hop” too! ;)


Favorite surprise: Spehere Locket. This rustic pearl-looking necklace actually opens up into a locket!


Favorite hair helpers: Aveda Air Control Hairspray and Damage Remedy. I bought these two products last week and deemed them money totally well spent. My hair has never felt softer thanks to the damage remedy cream, and the air control hairspray has eliminated ALL static!!!

Favorite funny: Community Christmas Episode. I have never laughed out loud at an episode of Community until last night’s Christmas episode. HIGHlarious.


Favorite cookies: Cheesecake Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies. These just scream Christmas! to me!
