Friday Favorites

Well, we made it to another Friday! You know what that means. Time to link up with Andrea, Erika, and Narci for Friday Favorites!

Blogging and reading blogs is a favorite pastime, but I still have tons to learn. On Tuesday I posted 10 Things I Need to Know About Blogging. So head on over there and tell me everything you know :)

Today my best friend is coming over to help me whitewhite our fireplace.  I'm really hoping the final product is a favorite because I can't go back once it's done.  Here is our fireplace now.   

I'm hoping hoping for a transformation like this.

I'm also linking up with Kelly's Korner for Show Us What You Make/Sell.  I actually don't make or sell anything.  However, I have professed my love for the handmade leather cuffs and accessories made by Bits of Grace Designs.  How adorable is that Mama Bear cuff?!  Perfect for Mother's Day.  

During my weekend recap, I mentioned watching Netflix a couple times last weekend.  A new Netflix favorite is Jane the Virgin.  This show is full of twists and turns.  The hubby was not interested in watching the show based off the title and commercials he had previously seen.  I convinced him to try one episode, and to his surprise, he enjoyed it and continued to watch more episodes.  He commented that the show was nothing like he had thought it would be.  Check it out if you need a Netflix series to watch!

I love me some caramel.  I bought some Lancaster vanilla and caramel soft cremes last Friday.  They are a new favorite.  However, I won't be buying them again anytime soon.  I had absolutely no self control.  The bag was gone by Sunday!  Hubby had a few, but I ate the majority.  Maybe I'll buy some more when bathing suit season is over.  

I have also claimed my love for Wendy's strawberry lemonade.  It is SO good, but not so good for you.  I found these Starbucks Via Instant Refreshers at Walmart.  Are they as good as Wendy's strawberry lemonade?  No, but they are still good and aren't loaded with lots of sugar.  These will definitely be a favorite during bathing suit season.  

Happy Friday folks.  Hope you have an incredible weekend!

I actually ate a grilled cheese tonight....not earth shattering but seriously I may eat one a year because I just can't afford to. It was so damn good. Haha. I can't wait to see how your fireplace turned out!!!!

  6. Ah Strawberry Lemonade. So refreshing in the summertime. Hope your fireplace remodel turned out how you wanted it. I'm sure it did!!! Thanks for linking up with us at H54F!
