Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, all!  It’s been a whirlwind of a week with tax season kicking off, so I am glad tomorrow is the end of my week and I’ll have all day Sunday to relax!  My brain is about done for today, so I will make this short and sweet: Happy Friday, please enjoy the wonderful things I spotted around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites. :)

Favorite Pop: Marshmallow and Chocolate Pops.  I could go for a bouquet of chocolate dipped marshmallows.  A Valentines Day idea that would be easy and fun to make!

Favorite Garland: Paper Punch Heart Garland.  Fabulous!  Take paint chip samples and punch them into hearts for an adorable and festive garland.

Favorite Breakfast: Omlette in a Mug.  You’ve seen the mug cakes right?  Since we maybe aren’t supposed to eat cake for breakfast (but you can do what you want), here’s an easy breakfast in a mug recipe!  Make it in under five minutes for a great start to your day.  Think of all the possibilities!

Favorite Use of a Mason Jar: Canning Jar Soap Dispenser.  Mason jars and I are really good friends.  I drink out of them, use them for food storage, button storage, etc…now I can use one as a soap dispenser!  I must begin my quest for a blue Ball canning jar to achieve this antique look!

Favorite Cake: Mini Ombré Valentines Day Cake for Two.  The perfect cake to share with someone you love this Thursday.

Favorite Photo Idea: Collection of photo frames in a frame.  I am sooooo bad at figuring out how to hang pictures, I need all the help I can get.  This is a FANTASTIC idea!

Favorite Brownies: Marble Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies.  How could someone not love you if you made these for them?

Favorite Crafty Inspiration: This blogger has a TON of crochet ideas!  I plan on trying my hand at crocheting in the near future.  Yes, I am 29 going on 80 and loving it.

Favorite Pasta: Butternut Bowties.  Butternut squarsh squash is super tasty.  When it’s mixed with pasta and cheese it just adds to the creaminess of the dish.  And if you know a picky eater, make this recipe and they’ll never know they’re eating it.  Sneaky, sneaky.

Favorite Fashion: Asos Skater Dress with Lace Insert Collar.  Perfect V-day dress.  I think so.

Favorite Drink: Red Velvet Hot Chocolate.  It sounds like it could be a cold week, make this hot cocoa and snuggle.

Favorite Clutch: Leather Envelope Clutch in Icy Mint.  This clutch screams spring to me!  It’s also screaming for me to buy it, so I guess I better….

Favorite Mousse: Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse with Raspberries.  Simple and scrumptious (chocolate AND cheesecake!).

Favorite Flowers: DIY: Gorgeous Chiffon and Tulle Flowers.  These flowers are beautiful.  Imagine them on a headband or as a brooch, just perfect.

Favorite Pizza: Quick and Easy “Philly” Cheese Steak Pizza.  Some nights I really want a heavier meal and this one fits the bill.  P.S. it’s healthy, gasp!

Favorite Herb Guide: The Basics of Herbs.  This guide is amazing.  Beyond the chart there are tips on how to pluck and cut herbs, I found this very helpful.

Favorite Food Site: The Crockin’ Girls.  With tax season in full force now, I need easy meals to make.  I had heard of these Crockin’ Girls before and finally checked them out this week.  They have a humongous collection of crock pot recipes that are sure to help me get through busy days with little fuss and full belly.

Favorite Film Release: Identity Thief is out now!  Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy star in this comedy that I can’t wait to watch.  Sometimes a girl just needs a good laugh (and a big bowl of popcorn).

Update on my countdown jars:
