Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday! We’ve nearly made it through the first full work week of 2014! Woohoo!

A few favorites to send you into the weekend:


Remember earlier this week when I was talking about trying to stay on top of my email? My fabulous sister-in-law Caitlin (who is always full of GREAT ideas) recommended to help manage your email subscriptions. Plus, it also helps you delete all the subscriptions you don’t want. With all of my online shopping tendencies, I’ve developed quite the collection of useless emails!

As you know, I’ve been on a huge cooking streak lately. This week, I was so grateful to discover the Pioneer Woman’s beef stew. It fed me and my family through the 20 degree Virginia Beach temps the entire week.

Now, I’ve never made beef stew before, but B and I both agreed it was the BEST beef stew we’ve ever had–I’m not exaggerating! I think the secret is in how you prepare the meat (brown it first) plus, cooking it with a little beer. Delish!

Speaking of The Pioneer Woman, I recently went to a New Year’s Day brunch where they made her Orange Vanilla Monkey Bread.  Oh. My. Word.  My mouth is still watering, it’s just THAT good!


Looking for a little Christmas miracle in January?  My friend Caroline shared this video of her pastor’s family’s Christmas miracle in 2013.  It’s so amazing–I couldn’t hold back the tears.  Watch below:
