Happy Friday!! I can’t believe it’s the last day of August (also the last Friday our office is closed for the summer). :( However, football season is upon us and that makes me happy. In other good news, we finally have a second vehicle!! Josh bought a pickup (I’ve been informed that it’s a pickup, not a truck). Mr. Farm Boy has been asking me for years when he can buy a pickup, and the day finally arrived. I’m pretty sure he’s excited to show it to his mom & Aunt Rita when they get here today (our first overnight house guests since we moved to CO!). I hope you all have a fantastic Labor Day weekend!

Favorite Cookies: I really love Cooking Classy’s blog! You know what else I really love? Those thick sugar cookies slathered in sweet frosting that you can buy at the grocery store. I shall try to make them myself now…
Favorite Vase: I’ve been saving all of our glass bottles for crafty things. I love this idea! Spray paint on gold, glittery paint for beautiful vases.
Favorite Football Food: Irish Nachos. Don’t know if we’ll be eating these tomorrow for the 7am Notre Dame game, but maybe next week…
Favorite Coasters: Make your own coasters with Scrabble tiles. How fun!
Favorite Jar Dessert: I have a ton of dessert in jar recipes. Why not add one more to the collection? This Key Lime Pie in a jar is far too tempting to ignore.
Favorite DIY Jewelry: I featured a ring like this on my 1st Friday Favorites from American Eagle. The ring is no longer available online and I was kicking myself that I didn’t buy it. Why buy it when I can make it?! All I need are pliers and wire to make my own…yep, totally going to do this.
Favorite Bread: Olive Garden’s Bread Sticks. Sorry, I can’t resist these buttery, garlic topped bread sticks.
Favorite Art: Has anyone ever done melted crayon art? I think this print on Etsy is really cool.
Favorite Bars: Chocolate Mountain Bars (a.k.a. caramalitas with chocolate). I didn’t think that it was possible to make caramalitas better. I was wrong.
Favorite Fall Decor: It’s pumpkin season!!!! I LOVE all things pumpkin. This chevron pumpkin would be an adorable fall decoration.
Favorite Breakfast: Fried Chicken and Bacon Gravy Sliders. I couldn’t resist posting this recipe. Seriously?!
Favorite Fashion: This outfit actually makes me want it to be cold outside. Just need a warm cup of coffee to go with it.
Favorite Cupcake: Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Cupcakes, get in my belly!!
Favorite Craft Staple: Modge Podge is great. But let’s face it, it’s slightly overpriced. I’m going to give this homemade version a shot and see if it works as well. It’s cheap! Just some Elmer’s Glue and water.
Favorite Pasta: Roasted Vegetable Pesto Shells with Toasted Pine Nuts. There’s just something about sitting down with a plate of pasta that makes me smile.
Favorite Stepping Stone: Can you tell that I’m in a very creative mood with all of these DIY projects? I think the Pinterest Party I had a couple of weeks ago is to blame. :) I really think these stepping-stones are gorgeous.
Favorite Fake Salad: The Avo-Cobb-O. It’s when a cobb salad meets guacamole and forgets the lettuce at home. Eat with chips.
Favorite Funny: Is it too early to be figuring out a Halloween Costume? Good, cuz I’ve had this figured out for a couple of months. I’d be Jimmy and Josh would be Will. You think I’m kidding, don’t you?
