{A few of my favorite things this week that I either just discovered or already know I couldn’t do without}

1.     Crafting Tape – I love wrapping gifts, presenting a friend or family member with a pretty package.  So, when I recently heard about the washi tape craze, I decided to incorporate some of the fun craft tape into the mix.  There are so many sweet prints to choose from and it can be found in any local craft store.

2.     Buttercup Bake Shop Cupcakes – Cupcakes are among my favorite dessert and I seek out different bakeries to find the best.  Some places that boast my favorite are famous, some unrecognizable by name.  But they all have one thing in common: really good cupcakes.  So, when I was in Manhattan this weekend for a baby shower and made it into the city in record time, I got to walk around and take in a few familiar store-fronts and a couple I have not seen before.  This shop was tiny in size; narrow and short, but their baked goods looked amazing and when I came back hours later when the party ended to pick up a box to bring home, my choices were slim.  The most delicious was the strawberry cupcake with real chunks of the fresh fruit in every bite.

3.     Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores – Such a fun and delicious spin on the classic s’mores and really easy to make.  Just bake a batch of mini-chocolate chip cookies and add half of a marshmallow, toasted, in between each.

4.     Rainy Days – While I am hardly indoors, outside in the fresh air every chance I can get, every so often there are super gray and dreary days that force you to stay inside.  And this allows extra time to snuggle with my little lady, in comfy socks, watching a favorite movie, which we rarely ever do in the middle of the afternoon.
