The Happy List

Alphabet Cookies are too cute for kids!

Happy FriYAY, y’all! This week was what will go down in history as The Whitmore Plague of 2015. My entire family is sick, bad sick. We’re slowly on the mend and we’ve kept Kleenex in business this week, so there’s that (who wants to send me one of these?). In other news, I’m so excited about this weekend because (a) The Puppy Bowl (ok Super Bowl, but c’mon the Puppy Bowl is way better) (b) my Mom’s birthday is this Sunday too and (c) Blacklist starts back Sunday. Any other Blacklist watchers? Ok…on to The Happy List for this week.

  • First up are those adorable alphabet cookies pictured above. They are the Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies from Trader Joe’s but look for similar ones at other groceries. How perfect for kiddos on snowed in days?
  • I picked out a few of these BabyLit books for Blakely, the author also happens to be my former book editor for Push-Up Pops!
  • French onion soup makes me happy so these sliders? Yea. Need NOW.
  • Cute free DIY Valentine’s make me happy.
  • This video…I watched it 6 times. Then I watched this one because OMG, hedgehog party.
  • Super Bowl is THIS weekend, y’all! Make this and you will be happy.
  • How delish do these desserts here and here look?
  • This hanging flower wall? Holy amazingness.
  • Skillet cookies make me happy. This one? Real happy, y’all!
  • My fave¬†quote for the week is below! Have a happy weekend!
