So I know it's Saturday again but this was the first day this week I've been on Pinterest! Crazy to think I know! But I found a few things I can share with you! :)
You'll be hearing from me again tomorrow with my plan for the rest of the blog this year! :)
Okay so I know that the title says Friday and it's Saturday... let's just say I got distracted with other tasks yesterday and forgot to include this post on my to-do list. Oops! As promised in my other post this week, today's Pinterest post is dedicated to the treats I made when I did my Christmas baking. Enjoy!

Peppermint Snickerdoodles. Okay, so for these cookies I did something a little different. I didn't want to use prepackaged sugar cookies, so I used my mom's snickerdoodle recipe. Then when it came to the peppermint part I used Andes Peppermint Crunch candy instead of crushing candy canes and I put it in the batter instead of just rolling the batter in it with the cinnamon and sugar. Hope that made sense ;)
If any of you are wondering about particular recipes or ones that weren't from Pinterest, just let me know!
Do you bake for holidays? What are your favorite recipes?
Hey everyone! So sorry I've been MIA the past week and a half or so... it's been a crazy end to my fall semester! Now that I am on Christmas break (it's hard to believe), I will be more present on my blog! I have a long Christmas break to-do list to tackle but a lot of it is holiday-related or things I've been wanting to do in the free time I haven't had. One thing I'm excited about is making my plans for the blog for next year! I have some great ideas but I'm going to keep you guys hanging for now but I promise I'll fill you in before the new year gets here :)
Now for the subject of this post. I've found some great things on Pinterest lately and want to share some of them with you! I hope you enjoy!
Have a great weekend everyone! I know I'll be relaxing and taking some time for myself. My roommate is walking at the graduation commencement ceremony tomorrow morning and I'm so happy for her! Hi Marci! :) Any weekend plans?
Today is truly a HAPPY FRIDAY!! Today marked the first day of our Thanksgiving break!!!!! YAYYYYYY! Here's to a full week off of classes (sadly, no necessarily homework) and taking time to rejuvenate before finals comes around. To start my break off, I'll be heading to Iowa City to visit one of my really good friends, Mackenzie!! I haven't seen her in almost a year :( and it is clearly overdue! (I just realized how much I am using exclamation points but I'm just so excited haha)
Any excited plans for you over the weekend?
Anyone celebrate a week-long Thanksgiving break too? :)
I hope you enjoy my Pinterest finds from this week! :)
I am a HUGE fan of Rachael Ray and she just released her first hardcover book! It is literally a year of meals her and her husband John made in their home for family and friends. She gives over 500 recipes with home photos AND if the book is flipped over, you will see her co-author (her husband!) wrote "My Year in Cocktails," which provides over 100 recipes :) On store shelves now!
Have a great weekend!!!
Sorry for the lack of posts this week. It's been crazy over here with constant studying for my 4 tests and it didn't help that our internet was down for 2 days! (Not very convenient as a college student)
Last weekend, I had my anniversary with Cody and we had a wonderful day together :)
This weekend we have a wedding to go to and the rest of the time will be relaxing and productive.
There's something I want to share before I do my Pinterest Friday that was brought to my attention by one of my favorite bloggers Courtney and I completely agree with her!
Check out this video from Good Morning America addressing the magazine article featuring Jennifer Lawrence, the actress from The Hunger Games.
Jennifer shares in the article that she is seen as "fat" and "obese" in the eyes of Hollywood. Umm... have you seen her?!?
This girl is so beautiful! I do not see how this is "fat." Our standards of beauty have altered so much over time and I think it is way to extreme!! How does this make you feel?
Here are my favorite pins from the week! Enjoy!
Have a wonderful weekend!! :)
Happy Friday everyone!
I hope y'all had a great week! I know that I did and it was weird because it went both fast and slow... if that makes any sense haha! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? Mine is jam packed, that's for sure! Tonight Cody and I are going square dancing with my church group (we go every year and it's soooo fun!) then our house is having some company stay overnight. Saturday is my and Cody's 2 year anniversary!! I'm so excited to celebrate this with him! I couldn't ask for a better partner in crime; he is truly my other half! :D We are planning to go see a movie (haven't done that in forever!) and go for a nice dinner. We will also be celebrating with our friends because one of them just had a birthday this week and invited us to her birthday party! Aside from all the fun, I will DEFINITELY need to find time to be productive as I have 4 exams this next week... YIKES!!
So let me explain what we are going to do on this page every week. As I have mentioned in my story, I have a love for blogs and Pinterest! So I decided to incorporate Pinterest into my blog :) One of my favorite blogs I follow is called Iowa Girl Eats (fellow Iowa girl!!) and every Friday there is an entry called Friday Favorites (linked to last week's entry) where she share her favorite finds from that week. (Thanks for the idea Kristin!) Therefore, every Friday I plan to do a post where I share my favorite pins from the week (either ones I repinned or pinned myself) and link the image to the site it came from! Awesome right?!? :) How many of you love Pinterest?
This week I actually didn't get onto Pinterest until today... can you believe it?!? I know I can't!! So, here a few that I found (or pinned myself) today. Hope you enjoy!
Have a great weekend! :)
