Friday Favorites: Starting the Weekend Early

Happy Friday!!

This weekend is a nice, extra long weekend for me 🙂 YAY for an extra day off!!

Here is a little glimpse at my day and some of my favorite things that I did on my Friday off.

Guess who is training for a half marathon?! It’s happening in just under a month. So… I’ve been doing some practice half marathons around my neighborhood. And by some, I mean two. This is my second one. It think my legs are slowing starting to catch on to this long distance running thing.

What is a day off without a treat! After my run I stopped for a coffee and then headed over to the library to renew my library card. Turns out library cards are now free! YES! Books, books, and more books!!

And last but not least, a trip to Costco. You are looking at a brand new Costco member!!

Well. If you’re trying to find me, I’ll be reading my library books and enjoying my first purchase as a Costco member!

Enjoy your weekend!

A Sweet Treat for Your Tuesday: French Vanilla Coffee Creamer

imageIt’s Tuesday!! Does anyone else lose track of the days between Christmas and New Years?

Around here Tuesday normally means some sort of cookies, cake or treat.

Well… we currently have an abundance of baked goodies around our home! And on-top of that we have atleast 6 boxes of chocolates…which means… there is no need to add to all the desserts, considering how many we already have… so instead I’m sharing this super simple  DIY Vanilla Coffee Creamer to sweeten up your morning coffee.

With vacation days between Christmas and New Years, I love to take an extra few minutes to enjoy a good cup of coffee. And I am a huge fan of these DIY coffee creamers!

I made some peppermint chocolate coffee creamer just before Christmas and we thoroughly enjoyed it; drinking every last drop! So, its time for some more!! And why not go for classic vanilla?!

This recipe is by far the simplest out of the other DIY coffee creamers I’ve shared… and tastes amazing!

Here’s how you make this French Vanilla Creamer:
