FRIDAY FAVORITES....BYE JANUARY


TGIF peeps. Thank goodness it is here. Ahhh, we bid January goodbye and good riddance. Oddly enough last Saturday was 60 some degrees and people came out of their hibernation like bears looking for honey. Yet, now, the next 4 days call for snow. I'm good with that as our sweet Daisy May turns 12 on Sunday and that doggie loves her some snow. Plus it just means another cozy weekend as before you know it, the busy hustle and bustle of the spring will arrive and we may miss these snuggly weekends. Enjoy loves!


1. My Boss was Elvis
Today is a sad day, my boss, who was not only a boss, but a brother and a friend is retiring. This guy worked for our company for three+ decades and I had the honor of working under him for 17 years. He loved to impersonate Elvis and often would for events like this company's picnic. Our place of employment used to be so fun and I often helped plan the shindigs. His leadership, friendship and grace will truly be missed.



2. This Quote
This has always been one of my favorite quotes. Yesterday I gave my retiring boss a journal with this very quote on the front. I think it sums up life perfectly. Live for those moments that take your breath away and don't let them pass you by.



3. Week's Attire

4. Not Wearing a Coat
While I have many darling coats, sometimes you just don't want to wear one especially when it is 50 degrees and normal temps are suppose to be 20. Throw on a few layers, an infinity scarf and good to go for a Saturday casual day. However forecast indicates highs in the 20's the next several days so may pull the coats back out.

5. Egg Roll Bowls...A New Recipe
Sometimes you just need a new recipe to ease the Winter Blues. Enter Egg Roll in a Bowl. I found this on a fun cooking blog Called Buns in my Oven and made it on Wednesday night. Colorful, healthy and a fun twist on an egg roll.
Recipe and Video HERE


Have a GREAT weekend friends. Snuggle up, watch what you love; get lost in reading, your man, your fam, or a recipe. No matter what, do what makes you smile!!

  2. I am so cold natured that literally after the temp drops below 70 I must wear a coat. Isn't that depressing? I hope Daisy enjoys her snow. When good bosses retire or move on it really makes your heart ache. I caught on to that "work used to be fun" (paraphrased) I'm sorry girl - I know how that goes too. Enjoy your weekend and I am heavily eyeballing that recipe!!! xoxoxox

  4. It's going to finally be cold here - in the 60's which is freezing to us Floridians! I don't own a winter coat so I'll be layering up too. Happy Friday!

  7. I just saw a recipe for egg rolls in a bowl and was thinking about making it for dinner next week. Sounds so good! And yes, it has been SO nice not wearing a coat. I even had the windows open at home on Wednesday because it was in the 60s! Unfortunately, it was cold this morning and they are saying flurries this afternoon?! I'm ready for spring! Have a great weekend, Andrea!

  9. Happy Friday to you, dear friend & happy retirement to your boss! While it sure is sad that you have to see him go, how incredible that you had the joy of such a fantastic boss all these years! He sure was blessed to have you there working for him too!! Happy Birthday to Daisy May this weekend! Your snowpup is getting her birthday wish...her love of snow on her birthday weekend is perfect! Hope you enjoy a cozy and wonderful one! While it's time to dig out that coat again, I must say you looked absolutely adorable in your layered coat-free look! *Hugs!* xo - Brenda // ChattingOverChocolate.com

  11. I'm am with you. Good riddance, January! Blah! I need a little sun to perk me up, this winter is dragging on. Oh well. There is hope and that 60 degree day reminded me that spring is coming. It has been nice having a few days where just throwing on a sweater was enough to run and errand or two. All of these are so cute! Have a superb weekend!

  14. What a mix of emotions that your boss is retiring. I know I would be so happy for my boss, but also so sad to see him go. And goodbye January...Mama needs some sunshine! Hahaha! I would even take 30 degrees and just sunshine. I am ready to start the transition into spring :) February around here usually means the weather warms up between 30-40 and at least there is sunshine. Happy weekend beautiful!

  21. Its a blessing to have a good boss. Happy Retirement to him. Life is worth living to take that break after all the years put in.

    We were in the 50's all last week & I loved not wearing my heavy coat... which is back on today with snow back. UGH. It feels like its 100lbs on my back.
