Five on Friday

It’s finally Friday! This has been a long week, and I am so glad it is finally the weekend! 

Here are five things that I am loving right now:

I just found this podcast this week and downloaded it to my podcast app. Yesterday, after a really rough day (it was Jack’s first day of daycare and I was full of mom-guilt), I decided to turn this on during my drive home. It was exactly what I needed to hear (the current episode was about anxiety, which is very timely considering how I was feeling yesterday). I have a feeling this is going to be a normal part of my commute from now on!

Two words: follow her! Meal ideas, beauty tips, a cute dog, hilarious Instastories… you won’t be disappointed. (There’s also a PaleOMG podcast, which I just downloaded and am planning to listen to next week!)

These are so comfy, but because of the sateen finish they are dressy enough for work. I will be living in these pants.

I. WANT. IT. ALL. Seriously, how cute is this? AND, like most of The Pioneer Woman’s stuff at Walmart, it is affordable. I see a shopping spree in my future! 

  • These amazing pumpkin spice breakfast rolls that my mom and I made this week

Goodness, gracious, these are good. I tried to make them with crescent roll dough and added too much filling, so they didn’t bake well. When my mom came over this week, she made her secret cinnamon roll dough recipe and we filled it with a mixture of puréed pumpkin, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Once they were baked, we covered them with a super yummy coffee cream cheese icing. My mouth is watering just thinking about it…

Coffee Cream Cheese Icing

  • 1/2 block cream cheese
  • 1/2 stick butter or margarine
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat cream cheese and butter together in mixer until blended. Add sugar and vanilla. Mix until blended well. Add milk slowly. Mix well. Add coffee and mix well. Pour over anything (or just eat by the spoonful).
