Friday Favorites

Hello Ladies!

Today I am linking up with Andrea , Erika , and Narci and sharing my Friday Favorites.  Be sure to grab the graphic and link up too!

This week has been rough!  I had a touch of the stomach bug earlier in the week, and felt just awful most of the week.  I didn't get too much accomplished this week, but sometimes you just need rest!  I had some great recipes I had planned on sharing this week for the upcoming game this weekend, however I will be sharing them next week!  


Cooking and baking is one of my favorite things to do, looking through cookbooks trying to find the recipe I need is NOT.  I have a lot of cookbooks, but there are a few things that I make often, and was wanting to have all my "go-to" recipes in one place.  I was going to get a recipe box, but knew in no time the index cards would look like I found this awesome recipe book.  What I love is that it isn't too big, it fits right up in my cabinet, and my FAVORITE part .....

...the index cards are all in plastic protectors so I don't have to worry about the cards getting all icky.  I have my ingredients on the front, and I just flip over the page and the recipe is all written out on the back, and anything spills on them, I can just wipe it off!

I also love that it is divided, so it makes recipe look up super easy!  If you are looking for a great place to house all your favorite recipes, go check it out.  

These booties have been on major repeat over here!  These are hands down my favorite booties I have ever worn.  They are a little on the pricey side, but they are super comfortable and they are perfect for those places where winters are mild!   The first two pairs I ordered of these I wound up sending back because the lining in the right shoe kept coming up, but low and behold the third time was the charm with these!  They did require some breaking in for me, the first two times I wore them my feet hurt, but now they are crazy comfortable, I can wear them all day long and my feet don't hurt a bit.  No doubt these will continue to be my favorites for many years to come!

My favorite this week was booking a little long weekend getaway for the end of February!  Mark's schedule at work is crazy during this time of year...long days and every other Saturday, so our time together is far and few we are both so looking forward to a few days without our kiddos to just enjoy each other, and not be Mom and Dad for a few days:)

Years ago I was a soap watcher, I recorded All My Children every day and watched it every night before bed...I was so bummed when it went off the air.  Well about a month ago I was eating lunch and The Young and the Restless came on, followed by The Bold and the Beautiful, I was sucked in quick.  You can not watch these shows for years, and just so quickly pick back up!  I am now addicted, and it is one of my favorite parts of my day!  I usually sit and eat lunch during the start of Y&R and then start prepping dinner, so I can kill two birds with one stone...get dinner ready and get my soap fix!

I received these shirts in the mail this week, and happy mail is always my favorite!  I have told you guys before that I am fan of Samantha Busch and she opened an online boutique, and you guys should totally go and check it out!  All of the things are super cute, and what I love is all SO AFFORDABLE!  

I have gotten to meet her a few times, and she is genuinely sweet!  If you guys are looking for some cute new pieces to add to your wardrobe, go and check out Murph Boutique .  Fun, affordable fashion is always a favorite!

My list is short and sweet this week, a touch of the flu kicked my butt, and most of my time was spent on the couch resting!  

Mark is working on Saturday, and I am planning on just catching up on all the things I neglected this week, and then Sunday we are all super pumped about watching the big game and eating all the good food!  Hope you guys have a great weekend!   See you back here Monday!

  5. Oh my! I watched Y&R every day from the time I can remember (my mom and Nana watched it too, so literally as far back as I can remember) all the way until a year or two ago. I don't watch anymore but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Y&R!
