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).
