Happy Friday! I am looking forward to this weekend. The huge Holliston Craft Fair that I went to last year is this weekend and I am hoping to find a few gifts to finish up my Christmas shopping. I also have quite a few more things to check off my ever ending to-do list. With the recent snow in NY I need to check that my snow blower doesn’t need to be serviced, and rake the last of the leaves. I am still hoping to get some reading and relaxing done too if I can.
Favorite Gift Idea: How cute is this idea. There are no directions for it but I imagine you can just melt some chocolate into some muffin tins and place the wooden spoons in them once half harden then place in the fridge. Add a plastic bag to wrap them, maybe toss some marshmallows in and a cute mug or mason jar and you have hot cocoa gifts.
Favorite Recipe: I made this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and I had it for breakfast all week. It is so good and it’s paleo! Score. I replaced the apple butter with almond butter, the coconut milk with almond milk, and adding in 1/4 cup of finely chopped coconut for moisture. It was AMAZING!! It was so light and fluffy, not at all dense.
Favorite Quote: Just keep moving forward.
Favorite DIY: Ashley shared this really cute fabric garland and I just adore it. I think I may have to make it for my tree this year.
If only we had unlimited funds to spend at Target
I laughed so hard at this one I had to share.
What are you up to this weekend?
Also linking up with Natasha for 5 on Friday.

A quiet weekend for us after last weekend’s wedding festivities. Grandchildren overnight tonight and a nice
wine tasting and dinner out with framily tomorrow night. Probably a turkey dinner on Sunday.
Making more pumpkin bread today!
Thanking the universe a zillion times that we did not get snow. Very scary that people can’t get out of their homes, the snow is so deep. Angels and lights for all to be safe.
Enjoy your weekend. Have fun at the craft fair.
Love, SMD’s Momma
You deserve a nice quiet weekend after last weekend. I am so glad we didn’t get snow. Enjoy the weekend!
I love making Chocolate Chip Banana Bread – I feel like I need to make one this weekend!! OMG that Cellfie I just about died – that totally made my morning!! That chocolate melted with the wooden spoons is amazing – I’d probably eat them all! Hope you have a great weekend girl!! xo
It is so good, and I love this recipe because it uses almond and coconut flour. So much healthier. The spoons are such a cute idea. Hope you have a great weekend!

This weekend I am overhauling the house – Organizing the rest of those areas I’ve been meaning to tackle – I mean CHEEZUSCRUST it’s the 21st! ACHK!
That chocolate chip banana bread looks really yum – going to have to try that.
That is such a good idea! I have totally failed my organizing goal. It is really good and so soft in the middle

Those funnies are perfect! I also love the spoon thing. I did that one year except I bought them rather than making them…
Thanks! Ohhh buying them would be really convenient.
lol your funnies are on point! facebook, so true! mm that chocolate banana bread looks AHMAZING.
Thanks! The bread was so good. The first recipe I tried was so dry and like a brick. This one was light and fluffy.
The spoons stuck in chocolate are cute!
It looks like cleaning my house so I can host Thanksgiving is on my weekend to do list, I like it better at someone else’s house. 🙂
Such a cute easy gift idea, right?! Oh boy, that is no fun. Much better going to someone else’s house.
The last ecard is too funny! That chocolate chip banana bread sounds amaze-balls right now!! Happy almost-weekend!
Thank you. It is so worth making again and again. 😉
So jealous that you are going to a Christmas craft fair!! So fun!! Have a great weekend!!
I love them, and being able to support local artists.
Banana chocolate chip bread is awesome – I feel like it’s at least semi healthy so it counts as the perfect breakfast!!!!
It is totally health using the Coconut and almond flour in place of regular flour. Perfect get up and go breakfast.
Lindsay T says
OMG! Paleo banana bread!!!! I’m going to make it this weekend!
It is so good. Trust me add the coconut! So good.
Tricia Coniglio says
Yum! Chocolate chip banana bread. I have never made home made bread but I have been seriously considering it. I don’t bake so I know it would be a real process between buying the ingredients and properly measuring.
Oh you should make your own, much healthier. Measuring is key because too much flour can really ruin it.
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I love chocolate chip banana bread, I’ve been making it in muffin form the last few times. So good.
Have a fabulous weekend dear!
The first recipe I tried was in muffin form but it was so bad. Like need a drink it’s so bad. I would make this version in muffin form though. Hope you had a great weekend.

Chocolate chip banana bread is amazing. When I make it, it lasts approximately 9 seconds in my house.
I found a whole bunch of ways to make hot chocolate dippers (from Pinterest, of course). I plan to try a few next weekend as a treat when we’re putting up the tree.
That first funny is freaking hilarious!
It is so good, it doesn’t last long at all. 😉 Of course, I’ll be checking Pinterest for sure.
The bread made my mouth water.
And those chocolate spoons? Mmmm….
It was so good I need to make more ASAP.
That Christmas gift idea is too cute. It would be great for an office setting or neighbors.
Absolutely or a stocking stuffer or a teacher appreciation gift.
Mmmm the chocolate banana bread looks so good. Your post cracked me up 🙂
It was such a great combination of flavors. Thank you so much!
Kate @ Green Fashionista says
Haha loving those ecards! Target, Starbucks, and unlimited funds would be ahhhhmazing!
Happy Friday 🙂
Wouldn’t that be awesome! Oh the things I could buy.
That chocolate banana bread looks great! And I am a firm believer in that quote…what’s meant to happen will always find a way. Have a great weekend! 🙂
Thank you, it was really good. Hope you had a great weekend!
CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA BREAD?! Yummmmmmmm!!! I looooove banana bread!
I got a couple of those chocolate stirrers at Target for Pete’s stocking. They were only a dollar in their seasonal section and they had a bunch of different flavors!
it was so good. Say what?! Target has them?! I might have to go shopping! 😉
ha YES to the facebook one. ugh ha.
I try and stay off Facebook whenever possible! Haha!
I think it’s ice cube trays! For the chocolate. I saw similar ones on pinterest, and I think she used ice cube trays. Such a neat idea, might have to do that next year.
That was what I was thinking. Such a cute last minute idea for teachers, or that person who you don’t know well since it can work for just about anyone.

Bahahahaha the Fo Shizzle Mah Nizzle pic has me rolling!! I just bought some chocolate chip banana bread from the Bazaar and it is my fave!
That one was my favorite. It is so good, my favorite combo of flavors. Obviously you have good taste! 😉
