Friday Favorites | Snowy Weekend Ahead

Happy Friday friends!! This week flew by and I don't think anyone is complaining!! We're ready for the weekend and thankful that the snow isn't going to be nearly as bad as they initially thought for our area. If you're in the affected areas (which is most of the Mid-Atlantic and East Coast) I hope you stay safe, warm and enjoy the forced relaxation. Linking up with Amanda & April to share my favorites from the week! 


Favorite Recipe

I have used my crock-pot for the last three weeks at least twice a week and I love coming home to a cooked dinner! We've been running out of ideas and I found this gem for Crock-pot chicken taquitos!! They look so good I can't wait to try it! 


Favorite Song

I was cleaning on Monday and this song came on iTunes - of course it's Shawn Mendes and it's so catchy. It came out a few months ago, but this was the first time I heard it!! 

Favorite New Mug

Gary and I were having brunch last weekend and they served his coffee in this clear coffee mug. Ever since I've been obsessed with finding a set! For some reason anything clear makes me happy! I also really like these from West Elm too. 

Favorite DIY

Once in a while I spot a DIY that I actually want to make - like this brass handle marble tray! Just look at all the ways you could actually use it! 

Favorite Links

//This was one of the easiest ISO breakdowns I've seen for taking pictures! 
// Quite possibly the sweetest story I've heard of long lost love
//Have you ever struggled to achieve the perfect winged liner -not any more with this tool

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you back here Monday for weekending!

  1. That DIY tray looks like it would be a fun project to try! I'm stuck in the middle of this weekend snowstorm so I should probably pick up a craft or two (and some groceries!) to keep me busy. Have a great weekend!

  18. I had coffee from a local shop here last year in a glass mug and I swore that was the reason why it was so good!!!! I then was on a search for glass mugs and actually found some beautiful, antique snow scene ones at a thrift store for less than $1 a piece a few weeks later. They are by far my favorite things ever! Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  23. Those taquitos!! What kind of crockpot do you have? I've been searching for a new one--mine does the job, but it cooks crazy fast, even on the warm or low setting, so I can't set it before I leave for work.

  24. I need that new beauty blender tool! I'm terrible at winged liner! ;)

  42. I was given a pair of glass mugs from Simon Pearce that I love - I'm sure you can find a cheaper version but if you want to splurge or keep in mind for a gift check them out!

  43. Crock pot recipes are seriously the best! Chris will usually throw everything in there when he's working from home, and I think that he seriously hates that he has to smell it all day! I love that Sean Mendes song too! It's so fun! I hope you enjoy your weekend, and try to stay warm with all of the crazy snow weather!

  44. Those taquitos look so good! I haven't used my crockpot in ages, I need to bust it out again. Have a great weekend!!

  49. I have to say... cute mugs are great... but I have double-walled clear mugs and they are my absolute favorite!!! I got them as a gift once and thankfully my husband doesn't really like them so I get them all to myself all the time! Have a great weekend, lady!

  52. So good to know the weather isn't going to be as bad as predicted. My husband is flying out of Boston today and I was hoping it wouldn't cause his flight to be delayed or cancelled completely. Crockpost recipes are seriously the best thing ever. I use it a lot for Sunday dinners.

  60. Glad your area isn't going to get that badly affected, but stay safe regardless!! Crock pot recipes are awesome especially for this time of year! The clear mug looks so cool, it's only a matter of time before Target has something similar to it! That song also, love!!

  66. I wish I wasn't so afraid of using my crock pot while I'm at work... I'm just afraid its going to catch on fire for some reason... or the REAL threat? Harvey Dent knocking it off the counter top. Odds of that are so high!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Yes, please stay safe!!! Glad your area is expecting less than the norm. And yes, love crock pot meals, so yummy and easy! And I love clear mugs too, always look so good with tea.

  80. I love that tray and those mugs. I have never seen coffee in a clear mug but don't see why not? I love coffee, why not look at it ? I am not much of a DIY-er but that tray might be worth a shot!
