Friday Favorites

Greetings!  Friday is here and so is baseball season.  Today is opening day for the Rockies and what makes me the happiest about that is knowing that spring is here!  I’m also starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel that is tax season, so that makes me pretty happy.  Especially happy because that means baby girl is almost here. :)  She better not come this weekend though, because Josh is in Atlanta for 48 hours to fill his role as best man in our friends’ wedding.  I so wish I could be there celebrating with Joe and Amanda, but I’m not fit to fly at this point.  Rather, I’ll be at home keeping my fingers (and legs) crossed that our little peanut doesn’t make a surprise appearance!  Also on the agenda, wearing my pajamas, eating all of the food I can get my paws on, and putting my feet up.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend!  Let’s kick it off with some of my favorite things from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites.

Favorite Fruit Dessert: Fruit Cheesecake Sugar Cookie Cups.  There is not one thing about this dessert that doesn’t make me drool.

Favorite Garden Accessory: DIY Copper Tin Can Planters and Chalkboard Tags.  Forget the pricey herb planters you can buy in the stores and make your own!

Favorite Burger: Seven Layer Taco Dip Burger.  I. want. this. so. badly.

Favorite Makeup: Chella Highlighter Pencil.  This wonderful little pencil showed up in my Birchbox a couple of months ago and it is fantastic.  It hides bags and makes my eyes look refreshed…a miracle!

Favorite Drink: Chocolate Soda.  Why are soda shops not around anymore?  This looks delicious.

Favorite Map: Personalize Photo Map.  What a fantastic idea!  Visiting every state in the US is on my bucket list and this would be a fun way to document each trip.

Favorite Cookie: Maple Carrot Oatmeal Cookies.  Spring in cookie form.

Favorite Fashion: River Island White Textured Contrast Collar Skater Dress.  How adorable is this?!

Favorite Snack: Peanut Butter, Apple and Granola Snack Wraps.  Every afternoon I go through this: “Should I have a peanut butter sandwich, an apple, or granola on yogurt?”  The best of all of these worlds is in this snack.

Favorite Kitchen:  Gorgeous!  I love that island!

Classic Country Kitchen by Crown Point Cabinetry
Favorite Side Dish: Loaded Baked Potato Rounds.  I’d really like to load my plate up with these taters.
Favorite Writing Tip: DIY Perfect Chalkboard Lettering.  Oh man, why didn’t I find this guide before I spent way to much time writing on a new wall hanging I made?  Now I think I need to erase it all and start over again (for the hundredth time).

Favorite Chocolate Treat: Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecakes.  Oh hello, please get in my belly.

Favorite Funny: Don’t forget super human sense of smell and magically disappearing ankles!

Bump Time!  No pumpkin was purchased this week, because it’s April and who sells pumpkins in April?  Side note–horizontal stripes are probably not the best thing for a pregnant lady to wear.
