Friday Favorites

Hey, it’s Friday!  We had so much fun last weekend with my sisters here, I loved every minute of it (well, except for the goodbye part).  With company gone and a tax deadline done, I think this weekend will be pretty low-key.  Fingers crossed that Josh gets the weekend off!

Another fun part of this past week was Quinn’s 6 month birthday last Saturday.  My, how 6 months flew by!  Our little peanut is growing into a silly baby, full of personality and eagerness to learn.  We celebrated her 1/2 year with her first food: rice cereal!  She is really getting the hang of eating and we’re moving onto squash this weekend!  I can’t wait to share the messy pictures with you. :)

Fotor01017184126Have a fantastic, fall weekend!  Let’s kick it off with my favorite things from around the web: it’s time for Friday Favorites!

Favorite Meal: One-Pot Autumn Herb Roasted Chicken with Butter Toasted Wild Rice Pilaf.  Happy fall, y’all!

Favorite Front Porch: Fall Porch Decor.  Time to buy all the ghords to jazz up our front porch.  (Isn’t that blue planter gorgeous?)

Favorite Cookies: Caramel Stuffed Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Chocolate, check.  Caramel, check.  Pumpkin, check.  Yep, all of these things add up to the perfect cookie.

Favorite Hair Trick: Fake a Pro Blowout with a Curling Iron.  My hair could use some bounce.  But let’s face it, I’m not the kind of lady that is going to have my hair blown out in the salon.  I need something that’s easy to do at home.  It will make getting baby spit up in my hair much less devastating. :)

Favorite Topping: Cinnamon Whipped Cream.  I want to put this on everything.  Ok, not everything.  I won’t be putting it on top of meat, but my morning coffee and anything pumpkin better watch out!

Favorite Hair Accessory: Little Leaf Headband.  Wait, do I post too many headbands on my Friday Favorites?  You would think that I wear headbands all the time, but I don’t.  Time to change that.  It is decided!

Favorite Handheld Meal: Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos with Goat Cheese.  Hello, deliciousness!

Favorite Craft Effect: The Ripped Effect.  What a neat trick!  I just love anything rustic/country.

Favorite Pasta: Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese.  Oh for the love of creaminess.  Pumpkin is such a wonderful addition to a cheesy bowl of mac & cheese.

Favorite Pumpkins: 35 New Ways to Decorate Your Halloween Pumpkins.  I need to go pumpkin shopping (is that a real thing?).  I really love this idea for decorating pumpkins.  It’s like the grown up way to decorate pumpkins.

Favorite Treat: Brown Butter Dulce de Leche Milk Chocolate Drizzled Crisp Rice Treats.  These Crisp Rice Treats are like Rick Krispies older, more mature sister.

Favorite House Number: DIY Address Number Wall Planter.  Pretty, pretty!

Favorite Soup: Spicy Chorizo Chowder.  Come here, you spicy little bowl of chowder.  Yum.

Favorite Fashion: Plaid Flannel Shirt from H&M.  I’m kicking myself for not buying this shirt last weekend at H&M.  It has elbow patches on it, guys!

Happy Friday!
