Friday Faves 1/17/14

TGIF! I am so looking forward to having 3 days off!!  Hoping to catch up on some stuff around the house and get several scrapbook pages made.


Here’s what caught my eye this week~


So American Idol is back!  I took last season off because I wasn’t crazy about the judge panel but having Harry Connick, Jr. this season drew me in. He is AWESOME!!  I think J-Lo and Keith are a bit on the soft side but Harry has great input, full of humor and charm. I have several favorites already although I can’t remember their names LOL!


Is anyone watching the Bachelor??  I am trying to get into it but it’s hard. There are other shows I watch on Mondays so I’m always behind and try to catch up On Demand over the weekends. Any favorites so far?  I did see one girl I liked, Juan Pablo had the first one on one date with her – forgot her name too. Maybe I should write this stuff down???


THIS card, by Nancy, is SO cool!  I love how she added shading/depth to the fence and the flowers are so cheerful!


Have you ever tried to freeze a bubble? This blogger did!  What a cool and fun experiment!


I pinned this recipe for Barbecue Chicken Hash Brown Casserole a few weeks ago.  We are going to give it a try this weekend!


Did you know you can create your own designs on mugs with Sharpies?  Check it out HERE!  In my house, Sharpies are always disappearing. I’m not sure why though when it’s just hubby and I!


Have you ever wanted to try the “Grey Stuff” from Beauty & the Beast?  I tried it at the Be Our Guest restaurant in the Magic Kingdom last September. YUM!!  Now you can make it at home! Check out THIS RECIPE posted by Chip & Co.


And lastly, check out THIS CARD posted yesterday by Joni Nina Andaya yesterday. Oh my WOW!  It’s just stunning!  I especially loved how she used the sequins.


Thanks for visiting today!

  • I just printed off the hash brown chicken recipe and pinned it too. Let me know how you like it, I want to try it for sure.

    I’m watching the bachelor. I like Nikki, she is a pediatric nurse at Chrildren’s Mercy hospital here in Kansas City.

  • harry connick jr is hot. HOT, HOT, HOT!!! and he’s the ONLY reason i tune in (as my B channel during commercials on my A channel). idol is sooooo going downhill.
    don’t watch the bachelor, but that juan pablo is also hot (or maybe i’m just needing something here – LOL). tho i’m not liking what i’m reading about him in the rag mags.
    i made a crock pot meatloaf yesterday and it was delicious.
    the cards are awesome.

    have a great weekend!

    Hi Kristie, I am a big AI fan so can’t wait to discuss this season with you! I am hit and miss with The Bachelor but wanted to watch this season because the Bachelor is so cute! 🙂 I have it taped but have yet to watch it. I also started watching the show “Intelligence” and a fan of “The Blacklist”. Not always easy to find time to watch my shows but when I have a chance, it is really nice! 🙂

  • I love AI, once it’s down to the Top 12. I’m not sure what nights it is on though. I won’t watch if it conflicts with my Grey’s Anatomy fix. LOL. Have lost interest in the Bachelor and Bachelorette franchise over time. Love the card. Recipe looks good; as a single person I’m not sure how it’d be for me though because it strikes me as something that wouldn’t be great leftovers. Love the bubble experiment.
