Happy Friday! And a very happy birthday to my mom!!! I wish her the happiest day, hopefully it’s as fabulous as she is 🙂 She and my dad are celebrating the big day in Mexico, I might be a smidge jealous because here’s what we are dealing with in Colorado…
But we’re so excited that next week we’ll be heading back to South Dakota and then to Iowa to celebrate Christmas with family. Yay! We’ve been busy baking, wrapping presents, and making Christmas crafts.
This will be the last Friday Favorites for 2015 (I’m taking next Friday off), so I made sure to pack it full of Christmas crafts and sweets. I hope you enjoy! And have a wonderful weekend, stay cozy and warm. Happy Friday to you!

Favorite Drink: Red Velvet Hot Chocolate with Cream Cheese Whipped Cream. Now that is one gorgeous cup of cocoa. Wow!
Favorite Ornament: Scrap Ribbon Tree Ornament. Cute! And wouldn’t they be a great present topper?
Favorite Fudge: Gingerbread Fudge. Fudge that any gingerbread lover will go nuts for.
Favorite Pillow: Buffalo Check Plaid Pillows from a $3 Target Blanket. As if I needed another reason to go to Target…

Favorite Wall Art: DIY Christmas Reindeer Sign. What a dashing sign!
Favorite Dip: Gingerbread Cheesecake Dip. It’s a safe bet that I’ll be eating all of the gingerbread between now and Christmas. Is gingerbread breath a thing? Because I’m pretty sure I have it.
