It’s Friday again!? Come on! This week was faster than last! I swear, if we blink, it will be Christmas again! I’m not ready for that one, not yet! Anyway, not much news on my front to update you with and even though it was a quiet week in the blog world too, I did find some great and interesting posts! Not to mention some killer recipes, which I wish I could put them all in the Finisher, but I can’t; that’s what following me on Pinterest is for! So I won’t hold you up here in the intro, I’ll let you get to the reading, clicking, and pinning! Happy Friday, happy weekend, and happy Friday Finisher! XOXO

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Reading. Although I only feel like reading before I go to bed, I am really enjoying that time. I’m so glad I found a bit of my old spark again!
+ More good delicious recipe creation! The 2015/2016 year on the blog is going to be killer! Stay tuned!
So tell me:
+ If you had to choose, would you rather live in perpetual Christmas/Holiday mode or perpetual Summer? Summer for me!
+ Random, but it ill make sense next week. What’s one kitchen appliance/tool you can’t live without?
