Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  Look who’s turning 9 months old this Sunday….

PicMonkey CollageHow did that happen?!  She’s growing up so fast.  Splash. (That’s the sound of my tear drop hitting the keyboard.)  Although I already miss the days of a tiny little Quinn cuddling in my arms, I must say, I really love watching her grow.  I think my heart grows a little each time she laughs or smiles  What a joy she is.

Aside from celebrating, I’m not sure what the plan is for the weekend.  The laundry is done, house is pretty much clean, and the Christmas decorations are put away (splash. another tear drop).  Wait, let me savor this moment.  Why is it that a clean house only lasts for like 5 minutes?  Such is life. 🙂

I hope you all have a nice weekend!  Stay warm and please enjoy my favorite things from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites!

Favorite Fiesta: Slow Cooker Carnitas.  Yep, I just added pork shoulder to our grocery list.  Yum.

Favorite Craft Area: Craft Room Wall.  There’s a large peg board next to my desk that is bare. I was thinking that I should make use of it for my office, but now I think I NEED a craft area.  That’s way more fun than a basket of tax returns attached to a peg board, don’t you think? 🙂

Favorite Breakfast: Banana Peanut Butter Chia Seed Pudding.  Good news, baby girl outgrew her food sensitivities so I can add peanuts back into my diet!!  Woohoo!  I want to make this for breakfast asap!

Favorite Jewelry: Say It on a Ring.  These pretty rings have been all over Pinterest lately.  Guys, one name band costs only $19!

Favorite Side Dish: Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots.  So I loathed cooked carrots as a child.  Loathed.  My tastes have apparently changed in recent years, because these carrots sound DELICIOUS!

Favorite Kitchen Organization: Baking Cabinet Organization.  I reorganized our kitchen cabinets last weekend, but am not completely satisfied with the results.  I need some space-saving ideas like this to take my organization to another level.

Favorite One Pot Dish: One Skillet Cheesy Chili Mac.  Looks like a fantastic weeknight meal to me!

Favorite Valentines: 100 Clever Valentines Day Sayings.  If you’re looking for some small Valentine gift ideas, this list of items with cute Valentine sayings will help you out in a major way.  A couple of cute ides: Donut holes with a note that says “I love you a hole bunch” and Teddy Grahams with a note saying “I like you beary much.”

Favorite Chocolate: Brownie Truffles.  What’s better than brownies?  Brownies that fit in your pockets.

Favorite Bathroom: Kid’s Bathroom.  YES!  Quinn’s bathroom is also a guest bathroom, so I really want to keep it fun but not too childlike.  Fun stripes with pops of color would be a great balance.

Favorite Soup: Slow Cooker Tomato and Tortellini Soup.  Soup season is in full force and this soup looks souper. Hehehehe.

Favorite Fitness: The Mommy-and-Me Workout.  Let’s face it, I’ve had “Workout” on my to-do list for months.  Like 6 months.  Wow, that’s embarrassing.  I felt a little better when I found this workout and realized I could very easily incorporate it into my everyday life.

Have a happy Friday!
