Favorite Things Friday

In honor of one of my all time favorite movies EVER, I'm starting a new series of Friday posts until Christmas!
"Favorite Things Friday" :)
Every Friday I will tell you about a product, person, or just favorite thing of mine, Bryan's, or ours as a couple.
My first favorite thing is something I am a tad bit embarrassed about. I have a weird obsession with body sprays and perfume. I LOVE smelling good, so every time I find a new scent has come out that I fall in love with, I have to get it. It's a little ridiculous, I know. I feel like I should be saying, "Hi my name is Amanda, and I have a problem." LOL
Here's my stash, it may not look like a lot, but there are fourteen bottles there... yeah. Ridiculous.

Another one of my favorite things is baking cookies. I think because it reminds me of being little and making cookies with my Granny, or maybe it's because the house smells so good all night - either way, I love it. Seeing that it is the Friday before Halloween I decided to try a new cookie recipe last night, SO yummy!

Ingredients and directions with photos can be found at her site here
also look at all of her other yummy, delish looking recipes while you're there! I just love the picture tutorials she provides!
This was my finished product; ready to be shared with some coworkers :)

My Two Cents
Just like she said, this recipe makes a TON of cookies, so unless you're trying to feed a small army then there is no need to double the recipe.

So fellow bloggers on this glorious final Friday of October, what are your favorite things this week?


  1. "Hi I'm Amanda, and I'm addicted to sprays!" This is hilarious. I love perfumes and sprays too, but I don't have that many. lol! Cute post. I will have to try those cookies, they look so yum.

  2. My Nonni (my Italian grandmother) has done a similar twist on a classic recipe. She makes chocolate chip cookies as normal but instead of chocolate chips, she adds a bag of M&Ms. Usually it's the colored ones for the season (e.g. the black and orange bag for Halloween, the green, white, and red bag for Christmas). She always makes them for family get togethers. I look forward to dessert because of them :)

  3. Looks at all those body sprays! haha you are hilarious! :) just found your blog and think it is adorable.
