Friday Favorites

It's Friday, and I'm wrapping up the week with a few of my favorites and a giveaway of a pretty amazing CD! If you're in a white winter wonderland like we are, I wish you a cozy and safe weekend! And if you've got some sun or warmth, enjoy it for me! :)

I made these "Perfect Blueberry Muffins" by The Baker Chick last week, and we loved them! The recipe made 12 regular-sized muffins and 16 mini muffins, and they were gone within 24 hours (just with the four of us)! I baked them again last night, using frozen blueberries that we picked over the summer. The recipe calls for buttermilk, which helps thicken the batter so that the full-sized blueberries don't sink to the bottom. If you're a batter-lover like I am, you will lick the bowl clean. And the baked muffins--with their butter and brown sugar streusel--delicious!

I received these SOREL Joan of Arctic boots for Christmas from my mom and Don, and I am crazy about them! I picked them out because they're supposed to keep your feet warm in even sub-zero temperatures. And my Target knock-off Uggs from 2007 just were not doing that! :) They're quite pricey, but Cyber Monday was throwing out good deals for us.

I have wanted to taste pretty macarons for years, but could never find them in our small town. I even tried making them myself once, but failed. I finally spotted these minis at the grocery store--and they're made in France! Mmm! The chocolate one was my favorite, and it reminded me of a brownie. I thought the pistachio one was really good too!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Your boots look amazing and seem like they will last for winters to come. I got my first snow boots when I moved to Ohio and they get some use :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Your love your boots!! I would love a pair like that to keep my feet warm. It was 10 yesterday!! And a very good song. I hear it all the time on KLove. Hope you have an awesome weekend!!

  3. I love the boots! I need something warm for preschool drop off. No car line means me trekking two littles through all sorts of weather!


  4. Love those boots! Sorels are supposed to be great quality and well worth the money from what I've heard! I've been wanting a pair too, but I suppose they might be a bit frivolous for these new-to-me southern winters...

  5. Those blueberry muffins are making me question why I ate a waffle for breakfast! Those looks delicious! And your boots-love them!!! Happy Friday!

  6. I have been so terrible at commenting lately, but I've kept up with your sweet family! The boys are huge! And I really need to make those muffins.. I feel like Michael and Linc would LOVE them!

  7. I need those muffins!! Looks delicious!!

  8. I got a pair of (shorter) furry sorel's last year and I'm in LOVE with them. They truly are the warmest shoes ever, and I have never had to worry yet about slipping in them at all. (In contrast to my well loved Uggs with zero traction...)

  9. I can never find a good blueberry muffin recipe---your recommendation sounds pretty good!!

  10. Jealous of you getting to wear your new snow boots - I'm waiting for our (unusually late in the season) first snow and might get the chance this weekend. Those muffins looks quite delicious - you've got me wanting to make some!

  11. Those muffins look delicious! And I love those boots...I definitely need something like that!


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
