Ahhhhh relaxation!

The interviews are done. Time to relax for the next two days until we make the long trek back to Pennsylvania.


We spent last night with my parents, we are hanging out with one my best friends and her husband tonight, and one last night with the in-laws tomorrow.

We pretty much covered all our basis for the last few days, and I am really looking forward to it!


Remember how I told you that I would not go to Starbucks again and NOT get coffee.

I came through on my promise today.

Iced Skinny Vanilla Latte. I haven’t had one in quite a while and it really hit the spot.


This week’s addition of Five Things Friday is going to be focused around Five of My Favorite Sweet Indulgences. 

I’ve mentioned it just a few times on here that I love sweets. It is something I am in constant battle with every single day.

If you follow me on Pinterest, you will see I am always pinning new treats to bake up and try!


Warning: If you are hungry or have a sweets addiction like myself you may not want to go any further. 


I thought I would share with you some of my top favorite sweet treats.

1. Blue Raspberry Soda Bottles

My husband is a candy fiend.  I kid you not anywhere we go he looks up to see if they have a bulk candy store nearby.

Case and point: I took this picture on our honeymoon in Charleston, SC. Wes was so upset that the store was closed that night.

One of our all time favorite candy is Blue Raspberry Soda Bottles.

They are really hard to find so for our wedding I ordered them off line and had them put on our table.

Wes just isn’t that big of a cake fan (even though he enjoyed thoroughly shoving it in my face on our wedding day), so I wanted to have something for him and to add a little personal touch.

2. Anything with Oreos

I love Oreos. There isn’t a single recipe I have ever tried involving oreos that I didn’t love.

One of my favorites is Oreo Rice Krispie Treats with White Chocolate Topping.

I made these once for Wes and he loved them. I don’t make them often because they are too much of a temptation to have around the house, but they are delicious!


3. Snickerdoodles

I have always been a huge fan of cinnamon.

One of my earliest memories is on Saturday morning’s my mom and dad would make my brother and I Cinnamon Toast. I think Snickerdoodles taste a lot like that.

In my eyes you just can’t go wrong with a sugar cookie, cinnamon, and sugar.


4. Frozen Yogurt

One of my favorite treats is and always will be frozen yogurt.  I love trying out new kinds and finding new shops wherever we go.

My favorite flavors: Vanilla, Cookies N’ Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie, and Graham Cracker.

Wes likes to share it with me so I don’t quite feel as bad.

I also really love the healthier version I make at home.

It isn’t the same, but it is a great healthier substitute! Just add some frozen bananas, milk, protein powder, and any other frozen fruit of your choice and blend.


5. All Things S’Mores

I love love love love love all things S’mores. If there is a s’mores flavored ANYTHING you better believe I will try it.

One of my favorite creations that I have made is: S’mores Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are so so rich and so terrible for you, but they are a great indulgence every now and then!

They are actually supposed to be small cookies but mine turned out huge so we like to munch on them little bits at a time.

There is a s’more INSIDE the chocolate chip cookie.



What are you some of your favorite sweet indulgences?
