Friday Favorites on Saturday

Friday came and went but I had some great favorites I wanted to share, even if they are a day late! It’s been a very social week.Favorite food

  • I had lunch with a friend at a new favorite restaurant – Cafe Zupas. It was a little rushed since I needed to get to work.
  • An awesome ANWA chapter meeting and write in. We discussed the big ANWA conference that I’m still digesting. There were so many amazing classes.We also found a lot of humor through out our meeting.
  • A surprise visit from my in-laws.
  • Girls night out was very eclectic with sushi and gelato. It’s important to experience foods from different parts of the world. We laughed so much in Charming Charlie’s. I can’t believe so many of the ladies hadn’t been there before.

I haven’t been keeping up with my favorite blogs as much as I would like, but here are a couple recent posts that caught my eye.

What were a few of your favorite things this week?

Friday Favorites: November 30

I hope you are enjoying your November before you kiss it good-bye tonight! Are you ready for December? I’m trying, but I wish I had my Christmas decorations up already – and my shopping. Life feels like it’s on fast forward and I’m working in slow motion! Even with all its busyness, this time of year has so many of my favorites!Christmas tree favorites

  • Last weekend we took our family pictures for our Christmas card. I’m so happy they turned out so good. This photography tutorial helped!
  • A little black Friday shopping with my girls. We didn’t get up early or anything crazy like that…but there was that one line in Kohl’s that we stood in.
  • We put up our new tree! Over the summer my daughter found a 12 foot Christmas tree at a garage sale (or something). It is so big and beautiful! Now to find the time to decorate it…
  • Christmas movies! We’ve already watched three of my favorites; The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, The Christmas Card, and The Ultimate Gift.
  • Book club for Before I Go to Sleep. It was an interesting discussion, I’ll share more soon.
  • A blogger event at Cafe Zupas. The grand opening is Saturday December 8!

Now for a few favorites from a few of my favorite blogs:

  • `Tis the season for great, simple gifts. I’d love to receive Cookies and Cups’ Peanut Butter Cup Granola. It would probably be a good gift to give too; you know, if you’re into giving away delicious food.
  • Once you figured out what gifts you’re giving you might need Positively Splendid’s Drawstring Fabric Gift bags.
  • Chef in Training’s Overnight Egg Nog French Toast would be fun to try. Maybe on Christmas Eve morning. We already have a traditional Christmas morning breakfast.

Now it’s your turn to share your week’s favorites!
