Happy Friday! This week was a swell one for me! I received some good news. I had a friend over to celebrate my good news with wine and sushi. I volunteered at an animal shelter and met some pretty stellar cats. I volunteered at the History Museum and quickly had to learn about Native American food traditions as I had to inform children on the topic for two straight hours. And, if you read my post about DIY Sugar Skulls, you know that I made 50 of them for a Dia de los Muertos event at the History Museum on Saturday! This weekend brings some down time and relaxing before I enter my journey into the ‘real world’ next week. Blah, blah, blah…here’s my Friday Five! AND please don’t forget today is the last day to enter to win an adorable snug mug cozy from Onana Knits!
These magical little cookies are first today. I made these cute ghostie ones last night, but love that they have them for every holiday. Quick, easy and always a crowd pleaser! Honestly, who doesn’t love these cookies!? You just have to keep an eye on them so you don’t burn them and be sure to eat them while they’re still warm. I cannot control not eating all 24 of them at one time.
Second today is this live terrarium of the Shire. *SWOON* Available for purchase at Gypsy Raku. You can also purchase supplies to make your own terrarium, another ‘someday’ project I have in mind. “For the time will soon come when Hobbits will shape the fortunes of all.” How perfect and inspiring would this be on your desk?
The windows of my car were covered in frost this morning, which officially means it’s cozy toe season! Muk-Luks are third on the Friday Five because they are my favorite slippers! I already have two pairs and I’m already eyeing up the next. Cozy slippers, socks and even boots, Muk-Luks has all sorts of cozy stuff!
Tired of seeing these all over your newsfeed yet? Who cares, they’re fun! Bitstrips are fourth on the Friday Five. As a trendy app that’s just catching on, I don’t think they’ll fade out for at least a couple of weeks. The more people I see creating avatars, the more I’m like, “Oh, I have to do one with them!” At first I was like, “What are these annoying things people keep posting?” And now I’m like,”LOLOLOLOLOL”
This tweet is number five. Call me a fan girl but New Girl tweeted me this week, and it was a pretty big deal. “New Girl
@NewGirlonFOX22 Oct: @meg_ocon Who’s that girl… with Jess?! #newgirl #selfietuesday pic.twitter.com/XVpeEHTxvR” Wooop, there it is! Yeah, they did this to anyone who entered there photo a couple of weeks ago but who cares?! After totally fangirling out last week and tweeting Zooey Deschanel like four times, I’ll take what I can get! Who’s that girl with Jess? It’s me!
What were some of your favorite things this week?! Hope your weekend is full of adventure and things you love!
