Friday Favorites: 11/22/13

Raise your hand if you are excited for the weekend! You better believe I have like 6 hands up. Wait, what? Nevermind, just know that I am super excited for this weekend! This morning I finish up my spin training by teaching a full class – wish me luck! Saturday is Thanksgiving with The Thompsons (Scott’s family) and Sunday is football!!

Here are my favorites from this week. . .

Panera caramel skim latte.


I had a sad day last week when I ordered a large but got a regular. . . and didn’t realize until I got to work. Oh sadness. I mentioned it on the next trip to Panera and they totally made my day by giving me my caramel skim latte – large – on the house to make up for the previous week. Love my local Panera. Extra points for having a drive thru.

Carmelitas and text messages proclaiming love for them.


Key lime pretzels – from


OMG so good. Like so good. This bag didn’t have a chance in our house. Luke walked around asking for “pretzel, pretzel.” He would take the bag off the shelf and crawl into his highchair and ask for them.


And Scott likes to pretend he doesn’t hear him asking so he doesn’t have to share. Of course the bag that they were nice enough to send me to check out is long gone. And now I need to order like 9 more. . .

Border battles – Packers vs Vikings this Sunday at noon. GO PACK GO!!
Fingers crossed that Rodgers can be back in action for the game. And I
am super excited about making these.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Pinwheels are a fun way to enjoy all the fantastic flavors of a Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza! |

Cards from friends. Thanks Caroline!


Fro yo dates. Thursday night perfection.


What are some of your favs from the week??

Have a great weekend!!

    Just so you know, my Friday mornings are now not complete without reading your Friday Favs. That and I made the carmelitas for my bestie who just had her 2nd baby, they smelled and looked so awesome that they were mighty close to not making it to Heidi’s house.

      Oh Nicole you are so sweet – and THANK YOU for reading. 🙂 And yes – we made carmelitas last weekend and they are so so so good!!

  4. Key Lime pretzels? I had blueberry pretzels on my favorites today but now I have to try the Key Lime version- and I am not telling anyone in my house when I get them so I don’t have to share 🙂

      Ahhhh I don’t know how you survive, you poor thing. You should write to Panera and ask them to build one close by for you. 😉

  9. That’s awesome that Panera was so helpful. It’s great when businesses have that kind of customer service.

    Those pretzels look amazing! And those pinwheels! Ahhh yummy!!

  10. Wait…how are you a Packers fan??? Should I know this??? Anyway, me too! But my husband’s a Vikings fan…legend has it that our first martial fight was over the Pack and Vikes. 🙂

    For some (WEIRD) reason, I haven’t thought about fro yo in months. Now I’m suddenly dying for it! And those pretzels look insane! Now I have to go poke around on their site…

    Have a great weekend Katie!
