Happy Things

Happy Friday my lovely readers!  I hope you all had a wonderful week.  I’ve been really enjoying the new fall line-up on TV (particularly Last Resort, 666 Park Avenue and Revolution) and all my fave returning shows (Dexter {duh!}, Glee, The Voice…the list goes on).  Now, if it would just get cold outside so I can sip hot tea, snuggle under blankets and use our fireplace!

Besides my beloved shows, here are some things that brough me happiness this week.  🙂

20121004-170450.jpg{Brussels Sprouts are my new favorite vegetable.  A year ago I would have been grossed out by the thought but now I can’t get enough!  This week I sautéed them with olive oil, fresh garlic, pancetta and lemon juice, then added some grated Parmesan on top.  It’s this recipe with pancetta added.}

20121004-170502.jpg{I rediscovered my Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker in my desk drawer at work this week and have been using it religiously.  I just love it.  It smells great, leaves lips super soft, adds a nice hint of color and reminds me of childhood.  How many other lip balms can do that?  Oh, and at $1.99 it’s practically free!}

What brightened your week?  And what are your favorite Mean Girls quotes??? 🙂
