Friday Faves...

Yippee Skippy!!  We have made it to the weekend!!  Ok, well almost.  I mean, y'all know how I like to count Friday as the first day of the weekend...I think they should make that a new law that the weekend starts on Friday...a three day break for all.  I think we all would be much happier campers, don't you?!

Anyway, in typical Friday fashion, I am linking up for my fave little party of the entire week: "Five on Friday" with Darci over at the good life blog and some other spectacular ladies...So here's what I've been loving on this week:

{1.}
This boy.  He started back to Montessori Preschool on Monday, so today marks his first full week of school.  He wasn't too sure about it the first few days, because he moved up to the "big boy" room (as we like to call it) and so he had to leave all of his other friends behind from last semester.  But, as of this morning, his teacher informed me that he is thriving and becoming "Mr. Social" in the classroom.  Big surprise on that one.  This kid would talk to a pole if he had to.  :)  I can't wait to see how much he learns and grows this year!

{2.}
So I might be just slightly obsessed with any and all things s'mores.  S'mores cookies?  Yes.  S'mores bars?  Mmmmhmmm.  S'mores ice cream?  Sign me up!  Soooo, leave it to good 'ol Pinterest to win me over with this little gem of a s'mores recipe!  Combining the amazing taste of Muddy Buddies (aka puppy chow around these parts) with the absolutely phenomenal taste of s'mores, and you got yourself a winner!!  S'mores Muddy Buddies.  Try 'em.

{3.}
Two words:  Frozen Pineapple.  I am not kidding you guys when I declare my love for this stuff!  I am actually munching on a bowl of this deliciousness as I'm typing up this post.  I have probably eaten 3/4 of the bag already, and I just bought it on Tuesday.  It is seriously so sweet, that I feel like I'm eating dessert without any guilt!  Costco for the win!!  (again!)

{4.}
So, I mentioned last week that I am in full party planning mode for my sister's bachelorette in a few short weeks...well, until that day comes, I am going to be throwing in a few of my ideas...it's just so much more fun to plan when there are so many great ideas floating around Pinterest the internet!  How fabulous would one of these glitter stemmed wine glasses be, tucked in their goodie bag?  And completely fool proof!  I'm thinking of dipping them in gold, silver and hot pink glitter to match the color scheme of the whole party...I know I'd love to take one of these bad boys home with me!

{5.}
You guys.  I cannot stress this enough.  My love for this little drinky drink is beyond comprehension.  I have made mention of it three different times in the past week and a half, but it has never made it to my Friday Faves, so I must include it.  Root Beer Float Vodka and Cherry Coke Zero.  No joke, it is hand's down my cocktail of choice.  If you like root beer floats, you will be in heaven when you taste this little beauty.  It is phenomenal.  Try it tonight.  You won't regret it!

Welp, that about does it for me!  I hope y'all have a spectacular weekend!

Until next time...

    My boyfriend drinks that Root beer float vodka, but I haven't tried it yet. Looks like that might need to change tonight.

    1. Aren't those wine glasses, cool?! I'm in love :)

      And thank you! I might be partial to him since I birthed him, but I think he's kinda cute ;)

      And root beer float vodka will change your life. Just make sure you mix it with a cherry cola...made the mistake of trying it with root beer this last weekend, and that was a huge mistake!!
