Favorites Friday

I would love to tell you this week was full of sunshine and puppy dogs, but it wasn't.
It just plain wasn't.
X has a cold.
Which means he really doesn't sleep well at night.
Which then means Mic and I aren't sleeping well either :(
Then on Tuesday I decided to grab lunch out just to get some fresh air.
While I was driving someone decided to make my lane theirs and run into my car.
Thankfully no one was hurt and my car has little damage.
So needless to say I am so ready for you weekend!

Now that I got the bad out of my system, let's focus on the good!
Linking up with some of my favorite hosts :)

~ Family ~
We were able to celebrate my grandma's 80th birthday over the weekend with her and my mom's side of the family.
The older I get, more responsibilities I take on, etc. it gets harder and harder to make time to visit family that isn't local.
I am so thankful and grateful to get to spend that time with them.
And I absolutely adore getting to see X interact with my mom, grandma, cousins, etc. :)

~ Football ~
My Cleveland Browns are in first place in their division!
This hasn't happened in  2 decades.
While I am not getting my hopes up (I have been a Browns fan for far too long to do that), I am super proud of my boys!
And then I found this shirt...
I need it!
Hey Mic, did you read that last line? ;)

~ Food ~
I mentioned this amazing & super simple appetizer that I made for our S'mores Party.
With the snow starting to arrive, it makes for longer commutes.
So I use my crock pot much more in the winter months.
I decided to make those brown sugar bits of goodness again this week and oh goodness they did not disappoint!
And when I say super simple, I mean it!
2 ingredients!
Throw them in the crock pot on high and 2 1/2 (or 5-6 on low) hours later you have a meal that everyone will enjoy! :)
This might just be my new go-to for family and friend parties.
From this...
to this in 2 1/2 hours! DELICIOUS!!!!

~ Fun ~
Mic and I are going on a date night this weekend!
I am hoping for an adult dinner and maybe a little Christmas shopping :)
Honestly, I just want to spend some time away from work, home, and X with my guy!

~ Festive ~
Two weeks later than normal we finally have our Christmas trees and decor up throughout the house :)
I just love how warm and cozy our house feels when we have Santa's, penguins, and trees scattered all over the house!
I have only purchased 2 Christmas gifts so far, so now that our decor is up I am diving in.
Of course we some one's 3rd birthday to celebrate as well :)

How was your week?

Go Browns!!!


  1. So special to celebrate 80 years! Wow! That's awesome. I love the appetizer idea. I'm gonna have to use it. That would be good as dinner with some sweet potatoes. Yum!

  2. YES! I want that shirt. I'm just like waiting for the Browns to blow it....that's what we're used to. It's been such an awesome season so far.

  3. I hope you have a fun date night! It sounds like you need it after the week you've had! Glad no one was injured in the car accident! Have a good weekend. I'm going to have to try that appetizer. Looks yummy!

  4. DATE NIGHT!! Have fun but go see Interstellar!! It's AMAZING!

  5. Love that shirt.....being from the land of Johnny Football I know lots of "new" Cleveland Brown fans! We are hosting my mother in laws 65th bday this weekend and I am totally the same when it comes to family...has always been super fun to make sure my kids know their roots!
