Friday has arrived. I’m one tired lady with a brain that hurts from all these taxes. Poor me. Somehow I managed to pull together this week’s Friday Favorites…I deserve a cookie for this. Feel free to mail me one. 🙂 Enough feeling bad for myself. Aside from working a little tomorrow morning, it’s the weekend!! There’s something about being knee-deep in taxes that makes the creative side of my brain EXPLODE! I’m planning a trip to Michael’s this weekend to pick up some craft supplies. I’m also going to make a couple of Julia Child’s recipes this weekend, so you can look forward to seeing those next week! In the meantime, hope you all had a nice week and have an even better weekend!

Favorite Appetizer: Stuffed Artichokes. A simply prepared ‘choke. It looks beautiful, doesn’t it?
Favorite Nails: I have jumped on the nail sticker bandwagon. They’re pretty amazing! I’ve only done it once so far (just on my ring fingers) and they stayed on for almost 2 weeks!! I’m going to hunt down some more at Target this weekend. Aren’t these glittery ones snazzy?
Favorite Breakfast: Homemade Apple Cinnamon Toaster Strudels. They’re like Pop-Tart’s more sophisticated cousin.
Favorite Travel Saver: I can’t stand when my ear buds get tangled up and lost in my bags when I’m traveling (petty problem, I know). I think making one of these little pouches will help prevent that problem in the future!
Favorite Comfort Food: Mini Chicken Pot Pies. Chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken pot pieeeee!!!
Favorite Dream Kitchen: You might have to pry me out of this kitchen. (sorry, there’s no link from Pinterest to the source, but it was just too good not to post).
Favorite Flowers: These flowers are gorgeous for fall. I really like the mix of colors.
Favorite Cake: Pumpkin Cheesecake Cake. Ummm, ok…twist my arm. Two of my favorite things: pumpkin & cheesecake!
Favorite Hair: 3 Ways to spiff up a ponytail. Let’s face it, I wear my hair in a ponytail a lot…at least I can make it a little cuter now.
Favorite Snack: Kettle Corn Popcorn. Stove-top popcorn is the way to go. Kettle corn is so tasty with the mix of salty and sweet flavors.
Favorite Fashion: Watch out autumn, here I come! (Someone want to buy me this outfit?)
Favorite Cookie: Candy Corn Oreo Stuffed White Chocolate Chip Cookies. I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a big fan of candy corn. I know, that’s weird. But now that I know there are Candy Corn Oreo Cookies, I may have a change of heart. It might also help that the candy corn flavor is stuffed inside the Oreo and then stuffed inside another cookie.
Favorite Craft Project: I’ve been saving all of our glass bottles for awhile now, without really knowing what I would do with them. Now I’ve found about 100 things I want to do with them, including this…
Favorite Sandwich: French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese Sandwich. This makes my mouth water. Big time.
Favorite Cupcakes: Caramel Frappuccino Cupcakes. Adorable. Caramel Frappuccinos are one of my weaknesses. Caramel Macchiatos are, too (I should figure out how to make those into cupcakes….).
Favorite Scarf: DIY Multi-Strand Scarf. Yes! Cute and inexpensive.
Favorite Meal: Skillet Chicken Marbella. A combo of chicken, onions, prunes, capers, olives, and herbs. I’ve never had anything like this, but it sounds pretty amazing.
Favorite Tune: I’m not even sorry that I’m doing back-to-back weeks of having The Avett Brothers on my Friday Favorites. This song has been stuck in my head all week!
Happy Friday to you!!
