Friday Favorites

Hey guys! Long time no blog. My internet was and is still on the fritz. We are dealing with or should I say putting up with our internet service..

It has been so busy lately so I guess not blogging hasn’t been such a bad thing.

My Friday Favorites will be kind of my week in review because I have loved quite a few things about this week!

#1 Crafting!

My friend invited me to a craft night and I made this cute plate. I love it. It can be used for the holidays or just everyday.  I used to do crafts all the time but since I had T & B I just never made time to do so. Now that I have Roen it is almost impossible to even shower. But we had a fun time getting together and doing this fun and simple craft.

#2 Making Gingerbread houses!

It is no secret I love hanging out with my family. We may always be in a constant sarcastic uproar but I love these peeps. We also make some pretty epic gingerbread houses.

#3 The Weather!

The weather in Utah this time of year is usually BITTER cold but we have been having some amazing “fallish” weather lately. I have even snuck in some stroller runs outside!

#4 This Chex mix!

My mother in-law makes this every Christmas. We have a baby shower for my sister-in-law this Saturday so I spent yesterday afternoon whipping this up with her. We added the Raspberry M&M’s to match the colors of the shower.

#5 NYX Butter Gloss

Do yourself a favor and go purchase this. It is the perfect gloss. You can find it at Ulta, Target or even some grocery stores!

#6 Decorating Christmas Cookies

These two LOVE decorating Christmas cookies so much that I can’t make them fast enough so I cheated a bit and bought a cookie kit from Costco and they have been decorating a cookie every. single. day.

#7 Live Christmas music

Last night we went to my little brothers Christmas concert. He is in the Jazz band in junior high and I have to admit they are probably the best JUNIOR HIGH band out there. His teacher was actually teaching when I was in Junior high! I was in his class but I was not in his is band class. I have absolute NO musical talent. None.
