Favorite Things Friday {December 7th}

Here are just a few of the things that have been going on over here this week. I am so excited to share a few new recipes with you early next week - they're goodies. Until then... happy weekend! 
1. Princesses. Last weekend we attended a sweet 5 year old princess birthday party. What little girls and boys don't love dressing up as princesses  and princes? We brought a homemade gift that would also make a great holiday gift. To make Princess Playdough, use any playdough recipe like this one, and jazz it up with food coloring and glitter. Adding a cookie cutter or little rolling pin makes a cute gift. My princesses had a lot of fun making the dough for their friend. 

2. Elf on the Shelf. Oh how this little guy cracks us up with his mischievous antics. Every night he is into something else. Fishing, making photocopies of himself... what next? Both of these ideas came from others on Pinterest, where Elf ideas abound. Please leave me a note if you have some funny Elf ideas for me to try out! 

3. Running in the rain. If you want to really feel alive, just go on a 30 minute jog on a rainy day. I hadn't done this in years, but it felt so so good. 

4. The Honest Company. We are almost out of the diaper phase in our house, but I am loving The Honest Co. and their all natural but cute baby and household products. I'm sure all the moms out there are saying, "Finally! Cute diapers. And they they won't leave any chemical-y smell or gel beads on my baby!" Both those qualities can be hard to find. How cute is this snowflake diaper?!

5. Things I Want to Make: 
Spiced Persimmon Turmeric Tea from Gourmand in the Kitchen (turmeric is incredibly good for you)

Lovely Salted Caramel Sauce from Always with Butter 
Peppermint Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies from Sweet Treats and More


  1. So glad your running again!! I'm thinking of getting elf on the shelf???

  2. Love the naughty elf Idea, I may have to invite one to our abode. The playdough is sweet and fun with all of that glitter. Can't wait to see your tasty recipes!

  3. The elf is so cute! So is the sparkly play dough. Great love list!

  4. Princess playdough...what a great idea!!! I may have to try diapers from The Honest Company-they are so cute.

  5. Running in the rain, kissed by a rain drops, what could be better! I love running in the rain (Seattle kind of rain, not pouring Southern rains) :)

  6. Love it all. Right now I get to run in the snow...which is kind of fun too until it gets too deep! hanks for linking my cookies:) Have a great weekend!!

  7. princess playdough is calling my name!

    hope you will find a moment to stop by and enter a giveaway i am hosting for followers (i hope you win!):

    happy weekend to you!


  8. I've been thinking I need to get an Elf on the Shelf...maybe a certain little girl at my house would act a little more nice than naughty ;)

  9. My daughter and daughter in law just got elves this year and oh, the things I hear from the kiddies! How fun.

    I love your playdough. How pretty too.
