Look at this cutie pie!! Believe me when I tell you she is an Angel of a dog; the sweetest most loving personality. And so smart! Just think; to a dog, every day is the weekend!! Here's hoping yours and the fur babies you love, along with the rest of the fam, of course, have an awesome laid back kind of weekend. Here are the Friday Favorites for this last week of January.

1. Daisy Mae's 11th Birthday
Why I am showcasing our princess and my only "girl"...because it's her birthday!
I know, you are wondering is that the same dog? Look how cute she was as a pup!! I remember the first night we got her, I put her in a tote bag and took her to the video store. I knew I would be up with her most of the night, so I wanted several movies to watch. 
There's not doubting those sweet eyes.

2. Duck Boots
Hello 80's! I actually had a pair of burgundy boat duck shoes that I adored. Now that the trend has returned, my mom got me these Sperry's below for Christmas with the grey and black plaid and I love them. So comfy.
Wore this to go see the movie "The Revenant"

My friend Shaunacey over at Confessions of A Frumpy Mommy does Duck Boots so well!!

3. Week's Attire

Loft top and Cardigan, Kohl's scarf
T.J. Maxx dress, J.C.Penny cross necklace

Kohl's cardigan and tank, Ann Taylor pants, Scarf knited by my late MIL.

4. Red Velvet Puppy Chow
For Humans, of course and I better stay away form it or I'd eat the whole bowl. The red, pink and white Valentine M & M's are my favorite.

5 C. Rice Chex
3/4 C. white chocolate melts or chips
1/4 C. chocolate melts or chips
2 oz cream cheese, room temp
1 1/2 Tbsp. milk
1 C. Red Velvet Cake mix
1/2 C. powdered sugar
Valentines colored M&M's or other candies
Heart sprinkles for extra decoration and cute-ness

1. Measure out Rice Chex cereal and place into a large bowl.
2. Place cake mix and powdered sugar into a large plastic bag or tupperware with a lid. 
3. Melt chocolates together in the microwave or on the stove top. Careful not to burn and stir until smooth.
4. Stir in cream cheese and milk (the chocolate will get thicker, but it's okay)
5. Pour chocolate over Rice Chex cereal and stir until coated. 
6. Dump cereal into the bag or tupperware with powdered sugar and cake mix. Shake, shake, shake until coated.
7. Dump onto a cookie sheet and let cool.
8. Mix with extra colorful candies and serve! 

5. My Valentine Decor
I definitely don't put out much Valentine decor, I think it's cause I go so hog wild at Christmas, that a lil simplicity is best but here are my two little decor favs I have displayed.

Hope Your weekend is overflowing with fun and Love!!

  3. Aweee, Happy Birthday Daisy Mae. Believe it or not my childhood doggy (a bassette hound) was named Daisy Mae and she lived to be 14! My Chippy is a true joy in my life. Now...I want all your outfits from the week, just ship them over and I'll ship them back in a few weeks, ok? I think the babies and I will make some puppy chow! xoxox Amanda

  4. Daisy Mae is just the sweetest, cutest pup! Fur babies are the absolute best! I just ordered a cute pair of snow boots (too little too late for the DC area haha) so I love how you styled yours! Happy weekend love!

  5. awww! such a cutie! happy 11th to her!! she doesn't look her age at all!

  7. Happy birthday, Daisy!

  8. Daisy is adorable! I have two mini Australian Shepard's that I adore. Aren't duck boots the best?? I also have a pair of grey Sperry duck boots and I agree that they are so comfortable. I also just ordered a pair of Bean boots. That puppy chow looks amazing and I may have to make it even though I will eat way too much of it! Have a great weekend.

  9. Happy Birthday Daisy, our Lilo's birthday was yesterday (or today, I can never remember the exact date lol) - Annabelle and I sang him Happy Birthday and he got a special donut :) He also took it upon himself to sleep in my bed all night (he's 110 lbs, so takes up ALL my foot room).
    LOVE the duck boots, clearly I wear mine like crazy!! I'm obsessed :) Love that you're loving them too! Thanks for the shoutout! Happy FRIDAY!!!
