Friday Favorites

Can anyone tell me what day it is?  It certainly can’t be Friday already!  What’s that you say?  It IS Friday?!  Super!  I’m ready for it.  I think I’ll catch up on some sleep and try to get over this sickness that’s creeping up on me.  Do any of you have a great soup recipe?  I’m thinking a hearty bowl of soup sounds fantastic right about now.

In other news, this is the last Friday before NOVEMBER!  Crazy!  I better buy some Halloween candy this weekend.  I restrained myself from buying several giant bags of candy when I saw them hit the shelves in, what felt like, July.  History has shown me that when I buy Halloween candy early, I eat it all and then keep the front door light turned off on Halloween night.  That’s bad, isn’t it?  Not this year, our neighborhood’s kids will have a few more pieces of candy in their buckets and my pants will fit better. 🙂

I hope you all enjoy your weekend and this week’s Friday Favorites!

Favorite Spooky Spaghetti: Stuffed Jack-o’-Lanterns.  These crack me up and make my mouth water at the same time.

Favorite Gift TagsCute idea for giving away goodies in style.

Favorite CupcakesRolo Chocolate Cupcakes.  Salty and sweet.  Oh man, I want one twelve of these RIGHT NOW!

Favorite FashionWhat a great dress for fall!  Imagine this cute frock with your favorite brown boots. 🙂


Favorite Dip: Homemade Queso.  I’m a sucker for jarred cheese.  I just avoid looking at the ingredient list and proceed to eat the whole jar.  I think it’s time I start making my own queso at home!

Favorite Sewing Companion: A pin cushion is a must for anyone who sews.  Isn’t this DIY pin cushion cute?  (Look at me, acting like I sew. Ha!)

Favorite Breakfast: Pumpkin Spice Monkey Bread.  We used to have monkey bread a lot when I was a kid.  Time to bring back those memories and add some pumpkin (my favorite) to the mix.

Favorite LodgeThis lodge is insane.  Insanely gorgeous.

Favorite Bars: Butterfinger Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars.  You have got to be kidding me with these bars.  ALL OF THE AMAZING THINGS!

Favorite PumpkinI know I had a Chevron Pumpkin posted on Friday Favorites last month, but I couldn’t resist posting another.  Hey, what can I say, I know what I like.

Favorite Side Dish: Roasted Root Vegetables.  Contrary to what my blog might have you believe, I actually eat vegetables.  And I like them.  A lot.

Favorite DIY Cake Stands (again): More DIY cake stands I can make!  This one uses old records instead of plates.  Love!!

Favorite Fall Dessert: Baked Apple Dumplings with Sweet Browned Butter Sauce.  How gorgeous does this look?  Almost too pretty to eat.  Almost.

Favorite NailsDIY Glitter Nails.  Yes!  Give this girl some glitter and you’ll have one happy camper. 🙂


Favorite Sandwich: Chicken Pesto Sandwich.  I LOVE pesto.  It’s just so fresh!  The husband isn’t a fan, so my pesto intake is limited.  I don’t think I can pass up on making this beauty of a sandwich though.

Favorite DIY ClutchWhat a lovely clutch.  I think these colors are great!

Favorite Halloween Treat: Pretzel Buttons.  Cute treat for my own Halloween bucket (aka, my stomach).

Favorite Funny: It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it. 🙂

Here a few old Halloween pics I stumbled upon…

Halloween of ’86 with the HUGE pumpkins Uncle Tim grew for us.

Proof that I used to be cute.

Overgrown Minnie Mouse. I was one tall grade schooler.

Happy Friday, all!
