Friday Favorites

(I never do this, but had a few things to share)

1.  This cookie recipe:

[Oatmeal-Peanut-Butter-Chip.jpg]

is one of my favorites of all time.  BEST texture ever.

(Thanks a lot Abbie.  Like I need more cookies in my life.)

2.  Bountiful Baskets (a food co-op.  You pick it up at a location near you every Saturday):

Picture 042

Go to www.bountifulbaskets.org and see if they have it in your state.  Tons of vegetables, for about half of the price, and I’ve been happy with the quality.  It is a ton to eat, but I love that it makes me learn how to serve kale and swiss chard and eggplant.  We’ve been eating so many more vegetables lately.

3.  This movie:

Ryan and I agreed: the best we’ve seen in a long time.  Uplifting, real, romantic, historical…you kind of can’t go wrong.

4.  These books:

 

So so so fun and addictive.  #3 and a movie coming out soon.

5.  This hairspray:

I started using it last year and bought a different less expensive one last time…and I’m really not happy.  I’m going back as soon as the garbage one I’m using is gone.

6.  Priesthood blessings (click on the link for more lds.org info) by this guy:

52

Let’s just say I’ve been having MULTIPLE parenting challenges (pre-teen daughter, sullenly disobedient son, tantruming toddler) and after numerous feelings that I should ask Ryan for a blessing, I finally listened.  It was amazing:  from God, specific, insightful, made me feel hopeful again.  A blessing, indeed.

7. This video (part of the Swagger Wagon series) that Ryan just sent me.  (If you know Ryan, you know why he’s feeling it):

8.  The spin pin (see Carie’s post for more details):

so easy to put in and it’s stayed put really well!

9..  This tube:

in this weather!  (FINALLY!  it’s summer!)

Scratch my e-mail...the comments are working...I guess it was just my computer.

That commercial made me crack up.

I love what you said about asking for a Priesthood blessing. I should ask more often. The blessings are there for us if we will only ask.

Your little Spin Pin bun is adorable.

I am going to get that hairspray. My 'do ain't looking so pretty in all of this humidity.

I LOVE those Sienna commercials! They make me laugh so hard. I am going to have to try that spin bun thing. That is so cool. Young Victoria is my favorite movie I've seen in a LONG time! I just love how realistic the love story is and clean.

I loved that movie too... I wish there were more movies like that made.
Your hair looks great in that pin thing and I hope your child stopped puking (sorry just catching up now).

Adrianne said...

Now I want to try it all - including the blessings from Ryan!

Rochelleht said...

Couldn't agree more. LOVE the Young Victoria and Kenra hairspray?! BEST EVER! I just did the same thing. Bought a cheaper one and finally gave it to my girls and went and got my Kenra back. Good hair days are here again.

I have kept this unread in my reader so I could make your cookies, but then every morning I stand on my scale and realize I'm way too fat to be making any new cookies. So I have to finally come here and comment. Am still leaving the post unread because maybe, just maybe, I'll drop 30 pounds overnight and can make your cookies.
