Friday Favorites: Sweet Warm Moments

It's Friday. Thank.good.ness. I thought about making plans for this evening but after a BUSY week a glass of wine, my Ninja Turtle pj pants, and take out curry is just what Friday night ordered. And if we are being total 8 p.m. bedtime is highly likely.

Alright let's get to those Friday Favorites! I'm linking up with Andrea to bring you all the fun!
1.Eins: Candy Cane Hershey's Kisses

If you've tried these before then I really don't need to explain them. During Target's After Christmas Clearance I picked up a bag of these Candy Cane Hershey's Kisses for 30% off. Then I stowed the bag away safely in my suitcase and flew these kisses across the ocean. That's love folks. I've been enjoying a few of these sweet treats each evening and my trashcan is full of those tiny foil wrappers. Shh...don't tell Wellness Wednesday.

2.Zwei: Funny Kitchen Print

I love when I get an email from Pinterest that someone has sent me a pin! It is also fun to run across a pin that reminds me of a friend and send it to them. My mother in law found this funny kitchen print and sent it to me. More often than I am proud to admit, this particular song verse is circulating in my  head. Although, I doubt it is in the way the original rapper intended! ;-)

3.Drei: Dress Up

Monday night, Shelby Dog played dress up with me. We put on matching scarves. Shelby Dog actually has a black fur lined winter jacket but she hates wearing it! She was a little bit more tolerable of the scarf. 
Santa Shelby Claus

She puts up with a lot of craziness around this house but she loves us. Just don't ever mention her Shelby Claus suit... that gave her nightmares for a week. 

4.Vier: Alaska The Last Frontier

This is a bit embarrassing to admit... but Husband and I are huge Alaska the Last Frontier fans. Lately, I have become obsessed with the idea of moving to Alaska. Maybe it's because we live so close to the German Alps but I am in love with the snowy mountain views. I think the obsession is a combination of Husband's beard, flannel shirts, and my cozy fur lined boots but I'm ready to give up the city for a homestead lifestyle. (Nordstrom's ships right?) Does anyone else watch this show? I think Eve has got to be the coolest girl ever!

5.Funf: Wool Socks

Wednesday night I spent 30 minutes in a department store picking out new wool socks. 30 minutes people!! For socks!!! I am NOT a fast shopper. Starting in November up until March I wear wool socks nearly every day. The thicker and fuzzier on the inside the better! These socks are my latest buy and I am in love with the color blocks. 

Favorite Song of the Moment:
I thought it would be fun to start including songs currently playing on my playlist while I write these Friday Favorite posts. Most of the time I wear my headphones and write while listening to whatever type of music I feel like at the moment. Of course there are a few times that I just can't help but belt out a chorus but Husband strategically keeps the door closed to avoid bleeding ears.

Are you still enjoying Christmas chocolate?
 We have a whole shelf just full of chocolate... teacher life.

Who wants to go to Alaska?!

Have a Fantastic Weekend,


  1. Stopping by from the link up! :) I must admit the "They See Me Rollin'" pic sucked me right in..hilarious! I am still taking advantage of Peppermint Bark-it's my all time fave! ;)

    1. Whitney, do you make your own peppermint bark? I'm thinking you can now use Valentine's Day as an excuse to keep enjoying that treat... It's red and white right?

  2. I do make my own! :) Perfect excuse for Valentine's Day, you're brilliant!

  3. I hadn't heard of Alaska the Last Frontier but now I am intrigued. I've always wanted to visit - and Ben is convinced Alaska is a part of Canada (that's Aussies for ya). This could be a good one to start watching. Hope you had a great weekend!


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each and every one.
