Friday Favorites: February 15

I’m still struggling to make time to post more often, but at least I have two consecutive Friday Favorites! Without further ado, here’s this week’s favorites.

  • Cake pop heaven – a dozen girls making over 2000 Favorite pizzacake pops. My kitchen floors have almost recovered. Despite the mess and time, it was nice to help them get to camp.
  • Deadlines met – I finished my articles for the Homemaking Cottage just in time.
  • Meeting friendly people at work.
  • I actually did some writing on my work in progress!
  • Fun Valentine’s Day traditions, ending with a heart shaped pizza.
  • Two soon to be released books arrived for me to review.

Here’s a few quick picks from my blog reader.

Friday Favorites: August 10

Yeah it’s Friday! Weekends are such a nice way to end good weeks. I can’t wait to share my favorites with you – so I won’t.

  • Lunch with a friend at Joe’s Farm Grill. I love the BBQ Chicken Pizza!
  • Our Pack had it’s annual planning meeting. We’re going to have a great year! I’m especially looking forward to our upcoming circus theme.
  • I finished several cleaning projects this week. The work might not have been my favorite, but I like having a clean fridge!
  • I finished reading Sherlock Holmes.
  • We tried a couple of new recipes – homemade pot stickers and tamales. The pot stickers were more work than the ones I buy at Costco, but they have potential to be amazing. I’d help someone assemble tamales again, but I don’t think I’ll be heading up that big of a project anytime soon!
  • The winner of the book Mission Possible is Beth from OMG! Yummy. Thanks to everyone who participated.

I can’t not share my favorites from the blogosphere too!

  • Nathan Bransford started a great conversation about book reviews getting to nice. Do you think honesty is being sacrificed for nice?
  • I love that Hillary Weeks’ husband is a good sport and gets a pedicure with his girls.
  • I’ve done pretty well this week with cutting back on treats (only 3 so far!), but Bakers Royal is testing my resolve with her Snickers Coffee Cake.

What are your favorites today?
