Friendsgiving Recipes November 25, 2013 No Comments
Above are three recipes I made this weekend for Friendsgiving! They were all so good I had to share:
If I had to pick a favorite, I would go with option #2. But I’ve never met a Nutella recipe I didn’t like. Enjoy!

Friendsgiving is my new favorite! Good food, good drinks, good people, great times. I wish we could do it every weekend, but my waistline and my headache disagree. While I recover and dive into some leftover desserts, enjoy these links from around the web.

A Weekend to be Thankful November 22, 2013 No Comments
Working in retail is… interesting around this time of year. And by ‘interesting’ I mean chaotic, stressful, draining, Diet Coke-fueled, exciting and exhausting all at the same time. So that leaves me feeling like a puddle by the end of the week. Thankfully I’ve got a weekend of fun to perk me back up! Tonight I’m catching a screening of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and tomorrow we’re attending Friendsgiving (what I’m hoping will become a new tradition!) with a gaggle of friends here. It’s sure to be a good time and I’m already looking forward to the turkey and stuffing. I’ll be sure to share the recipes I whip up for the big event. Whatever you’re up to this weekend I hope it’s a blast. Catch you on Sunday!
Plant Living November 21, 2013 No Comments
Keeping plants alive around here is a struggle but this clear plant pot has me thinking there may be hope. Or at least my green thumb just needs another shot…
IKEA Run November 20, 2013 No Comments
IKEA. A place that used to be a full-day trip has now become an after-work errand thanks to its proximity to my work and home. I guess that’s one perk of working for the largest Mall in the country! So today after wrapping up at the office, I’m making an IKEA run. Items on the list include a couple shelves, office storage, lighting and a clothes rack. Of course, like Target, you can never leave IKEA without adding a few totally unnecessary items to your cart. I’ll report back if I find anything great!
Super exciting stuff around here, friends. Super exciting.
Wrapping Presents November 19, 2013 No Comments
While rummaging through the office last night (the never ending project, you can catch some glimpses of the space here), I discovered that we have half a dozen rolls of kraft paper lying around that weren’t used for our wedding. Guess how your Christmas presents are being wrapped this year, friends and family? Act surprised come late December.
Also if you’re looking to score your own stash of kraft paper, start at the Dollar Tree!

Wedding Sneak Peek November 18, 2013 2 Comments
I casually mentioned it on Friday, but we got a sneak peek of wedding photos this weekend and I could not stop watching the slideshow. Literally, I watched in on repeat for periods of time I do not wish to disclose. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Brandon Werth you are a joy to work with and your talent continues to amaze me. I’ll share a full recap soon, but this joyous photo of my gal pal will have to hold you over until then.

Weekend Wrap Up 11.17 November 17, 2013 No Comments
This weekend the puppy realized the couch is much more comfortable than the floor. So in between freelance work, errands, yard work, dinner plans and house guests, we’ve been watching him like a hawk. He’s found a perfect cozy spot on the chaise of our sofa and is determined to make it his. It’s now an ongoing battle at the Erickson household. Even now as I type this, he just casually came up, put his paws on the cushion and made his way up next to me. Boy is he persistent. While I work on breaking this bad habit, enjoy these links from around the web!
Comfy Weekend November 15, 2013 1 Comment
Hello, Friday. You’ve been a lifesaver after the last few days around here. Between your glorious weather, your long lunch break (taking photos with this guy) and the quiet evening at home with some wine and wedding photo viewing (details to come!), I think I love you. Let’s ride this high into the quiet weekend ahead, shall we?
