Trisha's Friday Favorites

It's FRIDAY and I found some GREAT favorites this week





Favorite BOOK of the Week


“IT Girls guide to Blogging with Moxie” – By Joelle Reeder & Katherine Scoleri
Are you a newbie blogger and need some simple “how tos”? This is the book for YOU! I checked it out from my local library, and it was so full of great tips, ideas and information that I have now ordered my own copy from Amazon. It is one of those books I know I will refer to over and over again as a newbie blogger.
This book is broken down in simple steps for creating a blog and explains the blogging world to you. Once you read this book you will feel like an expert in blogging.



I’d love to know if you are a blogger, so comment and leave us your blog address.



Favorite STORE of the week
While in Arizona I stopped in at “Home Goods” and became instantly addicted to this store. I was a TJ Maxx shopper, but I had no idea there was such a store by TJ Maxx filled ONLY with incredible HOME stuff.
The store was packed full of dishes, bedding, pictures, decorations and pillows like I’ve never seen before, and the prices were amazingly cheap... WOW!
If you have a “Home Goods” in your area and have yet to stop in, take this as a warning - you might get addicted. I know I already am and will now search for these on our vacations.

What was your favorite store this week?

Favorite Dessert this week
Ice Cream Crepes – Oh so YUMMY The Novotnys love crepes, especially filled with strawberries and whipped cream. This is why my little chef daughter Savannah thought they would be yummy filled with ice cream. So, she and I created the YUMMIEST, and I mean YUMMIEST, crepe desserts.
We filled store bought crepes with Dreyers Banana Nut ice cream, sliced fresh strawberries and bananas on top of the ice cream, then folded the crepe closed and drizzled hot fudge sauce on top with a few more strawberries and bananas, and topped it off with whipped cream. It not only tasted amazing, but it looked amazing – a SIMPLE and FAST dessert.

Favorite BARGAIN of the weekMy bargain of the week comes from Macy's. It is Clinque make-up bonus time - you get a FREE 7-piece gift with any $21.50 purchase.
My girls are also Clinque buyers so they LOVE these freebies with purchase.

Favorite FREEbie of the week
My Favorite Freebie this week is one I found for my Husband. McDonalds is jumping into the coffee wars and has launched their new McCafés.
To get your coffee lovers to stop by they are giving away a free small McCafe espresso drink at 112 Western Washington locations.
