Happy day to you! A fast week it was, I can hardly believe it’s over. The weekend shall bring more packing, some football watching, errand running, and a possible first outing to a restaurant with the little one. Wish us luck. What are your plans for the first weekend of September?
Before we get to Friday Favorites, I have a couple questions for any baby experts out there. Does anyone have tips for soothing a teething baby? Or any tips for a baby refusing to nap? The nap-time routine (and bedtime, for that matter) has been a struggle this week; she goes from a happy baby to a screaming baby every time we put her in her crib. I am chalking this up to a combination of her teething and her not wanting to be away from all the action (or us). On the plus-side, she’s super cuddly these days and I cherish those moments. 🙂 Any tips are welcome!
Alright, time for my weekly roundup of favorite things from the web. It’s FRIDAY FAVORITE!! Enjoy your weekend!***click on the red text to be led to the sources of my favorites
Favorite Cookies: Browned Butter Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies. Browned Butter should be the only way butter is eaten, in my humble opinion. These cookies sound amazing!
Favorite Pillows: DIY Freezer Paper Stenciled Throw Pillows. Quinn’s room in the new house has long window seat that I can’t wait to decorate with pillows and stuffed animals. Decorative pillows can be a bit pricey, so I like the option of buying simple pillows and jazzing them up. Like these ones below!
Favorite Slow Cooker Recipe: Slow Cooker Enchilada Pork Tacos with Sweet Corn Slaw. Hello, dinner!
Favorite Scarf: 30 Minute Arm Knit Scarf. I feel like this is something I could actually do…way easier than me learning how to knit.
Favorite Cake: Funfetti Cake Batter Cookie Dough Brownie Layer Cake. Goodness that’s a lot of goodness.
Favorite Upcycle Project: Shutter Projects. Our new house has shutters on a few of the windows inside the house (instead of blinds or curtains) and we are planning on replacing them, but I would love to use them for another purpose. I can’t decide between these two projects, so maybe I’ll just have to do both. 🙂
Favorite Bread: Fall Favorite Pumpkin Bread. Punkin’ season has arrived!! MY FAVORITE!
Favorite Playroom Storage: Wood Crate Toy Storage. A fun and colorful way to keep toys and books organized!
Favorite Casserole: Chicken Quinoa Wild Rice Casserole. Casseroles are my kind of meal and this one looks like a winner.
Favorite Fall Fashion: 15 Thanksgiving Outfits for Every Occasion. There are so many cute outfits in this roundup. I have similar pieces to this outfit below that I can’t wait to try together. Gosh, I love a good cardigan. So sensible.
Favorite Breakfast: Cinnamon Rolls with Coffee Frosting. If I could eat a cinnamon roll for breakfast every morning, I would. Especially one with coffee frosting. Coffee frosting! Genius.
Favorite Bowl: Quilted Bowl from West Elm. I love gooollldddd. Well isn’t this a flashy and gorgeous little bowl?
Favorite Dough: Best Basic Pizza Dough. We made this pizza dough last weekend in a cast iron skillet, a-mazing. Just top with your favorite ingredients and bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes and you have a fabulous deep dish pizza.
Favorite Truth: Yep, I am guilty of doing this. Anyone else??
Happy Friday to youuuu!
P.S. I revamped the look of my blog, I think it looks a little cleaner like this. What do you think? Don’t be surprised if I play around with it a little more in the future!
