Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!

It has been a cold & snowy week around here but I love it :)  Yes, I am one of those weird people who hope for lots & lots of snow!  It's so pretty, makes great blog photos (always a plus) and is so much fun to play in!

Before we get started on our cozy, snow-filled weekend, it's time to share my Friday Favorites with you guys!

Also, don't forget to enter my Valentine's Day giveaway to win these goodies using the Rafflecopter below!

1. Crockpot Beefy Cheesy Tortellini

We love crockpot meals!  They are very price reasonable to make and it's so nice to just throw something in the crockpot in the morning and know dinner is ready when you come home at night.  These have really helped us save money because we know dinner is ready instead of going with the impulse to grab dinner out.  See my tortellini recipe here.

3. Snow

My favorite snow bunny! Can't wait to go sledding this weekend : )

4. Early Christmas Shopping
Okay, it's not really looking like Christmas (well maybe it is since all I see is snow outside)!  I am one of those crazy people who Christmas shops all year ; )  There are such amazing deals going on in January at a lot of stores so I haven't definitely taken advantage and have picked up about 10 Christmas gifts for this year so far.  I don't go out searching like crazy to find them or anything but throughout the year when I see deals on things I know people will love and be perfect for Christmas I  go ahead and grab them.  This makes our lives and budgeting so much easier when Christmas time gets here!  I can focus on the real reason for the season and enjoy my decorated home & all the festivities  with my husband knowing all I have to do is wrap the gifts I already have and just pick up a few finishing pieces!  

5. Favorite Sales

All of these great items from Nordstrom are currently on sale!  I own the first four and would recommend each one!  I'm debating ordering the plaid shirt and the North Face jacket seems to be a pretty good deal if you want that color.  (Click on the images to find that item)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  We have hopefully a lot of relaxing with maybe some fun in the snow on our agenda :)

  12. We've had a snowy week too! I love shopping for Christmas throughout the year too. Haven't done much yet this year though because we are moving across the country in June, and I don't want to have more stuff to move! The crockpot recipe looks amazing!

  13. We are getting ready for the snow up my way. That crock pot meal looks so delicious!

  14. I'm totally impressed with your approach to Christmas shopping - I don't know that I can start now, but at least maybe during the summer! And my crockpot is definitely on heavy rotation now too...that tortellini dish looks yummy!

  15. I love the slow cooker and your recipe looked so good earlier this week! I hope y'all have the best time sledding in the's dry here in Texas :(
