Five on Friday!

This week went by surprisingly fast… which was quite a lovely surprise (I’m all about more weekend time)! John and I don’t have anything on the agenda this weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m looking forward to sleeping in and relaxing. Whoop, whoop!

Linking up for Five on Friday and the giveaway with Darci, Natasha, Christina, and April!


ONE

Have you guys tried the most delicious treat in the world? 

I’m a firm believer in dessert, and these little guys are a perfect after dinner sweet.  They are only 100 calories per pack (and if you can limit yourself to only one pack, then you’re a stronger woman than I am).



TWO

It has been full-on fall in our house lately, and I’m loving it.  There have been a ton of recipes and DIYs around blogland that I can’t wait to try. 

Here’s what I’ve been up to on the fall front.

THREE

Homeland has started!  Is anyone watching?  

John and I will buy (and then cancel) Showtime specifically for this show.  I’m hoping this will hold me over until my beloved Downton Abbey starts back up in January.



FOUR

You know what I love? Snail mail, packages, surprises… and easy meals! 

This past week I was surprised by John’s step-mom with possibly my next go-to cookbook.  I love me some crockpot and dutch oven meals, but I have taken a break from them since I OD’ed on them this time last year (yes, you can OD on your crockpot)… and I’m feeling ready to break it out again. 

I’ll be sharing some of my favorites!



FIVE

Like when her hair was crafted by actual angels...

  2. I LOVE Homeland. I keep thinking maybe they didn't really kill Brody?...Is that weird? I'm secretly hoping they faked it and will bring him back:)

  8. That cookbook sounds wonderful!!! I have never used a crockpot (I know it's like I was born yesterday) I just always use the stove. My husband would love those banana dippers. :-) I hope that you have a nice relaxing weekend! :-)

  9. I've seen those banana things around the blogosphere, but never in the store. They sound yummy, but yeah I can never limit myself to one pack! Homeland totally broke my heart last season, so I'm not sure I want to watch this season! Let me know how it is :) Love all your festive fall projects! Have a great weekend lady!

  14. Those bananas look awesome. I have the Trader Joes ones in my freezer at all times. I am actually loving Homeland. I wasnt sure how it would be without Brody but so far so good. How freaking AMAZING is Blake Lively. I would be happier if she were married to Leo and preggo with his baby (imagine the genes that kid would have) but I am still excited.

  23. Hahah crafted by angels = priceless. I'm curious about the recipes so share some faves! I think the dippers weren't sweet enough for me so I wish they'd make a milk chocolate version. And a big YES to Homeland - love it!

  24. Homeland is sooooooooo good! I'm usually a year behind. I've working through my Season 3 DVDs right now. Blake and Ryan are going to have the cutest child. Love those dippers. Did you know they have chocolate covered strawberries now?

  29. I'm seriously so impressed with your macaroon making ability. I'm going to have to try these pumpkin macaroons! Ive been obsessed with Homeland and I was seriously disappointed when I went to watch it this past week and learned we didn't have Showtime. I had no idea. Apparently I'm going to have to get that added.
