Whatever Friday

Happy Weekend everyone! I hope you had a great week! Here’s what I did…

1. First, a bit of Facebook advice. If you have a blog, you NEED to install a Facebook Like Box on your site. You get code from Facebook and put it in any widget area. You can fill out all the information and get the codeΒ here. I put it in my footer, right under the comments. On November 4th I had 2,641 Facebook likes on my page. Today? I have 3,521. That’s almost 1,000 new likes in one month, people. Go do it. NOW. :) Oh, and then go see Joan for all her Facebook advice. That helps your reach.

2. Christmas baking is in full swing around here. I have 3 batches of cookies in my freezer…with more coming. And candy. And a pie. Be ready family. Be ready.

3. This week I…

Wore my fat pants.

Fed my addiction.

Talked about magical wrapping.

Re-introduced you to the best candy bark EVER.

And I also rounded up my favorite Christmas treats from last year. Go take a look!

4. The winners of the Heirloom Cookie Sheets were Barbara N. and Maureen B. Congrats ladies! I’m going to have another giveaway next week, you won’t want to miss it!

5. Because you love family photos, right?

Jenny did my planking for me this week. I was too tired.

FYI. 7+ from 30 years ago does not necessarily mean 7+ in 2012. Note to self: if you don’t remember the movie, watch it first.

Yes. I AM that dog owner, thankyouverymuch. {In my defense, the groomer gave it to us…}

6. I know LED lights are supposed to save me money, but you know what? My Christmas tree just looks plain weird.

7. I am about halfway through Water for Elephants. It’s SO good. I also have Reached (the 3rd Matched book) next in my lineup. What are you reading?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’m hoping to finish up some of my shopping. Are you doing anything exciting?

See you all Sunday night with more sugar. Because you can’t get enough, right?

xo, Dorothy

    I had no clue about the Facebook box. Vanessa installed it on my new site and in the last 2 weeks I’ve gotten 200 new likes! I guess she knows what she is doing, haha! And yes, Joan is a Facebook genius, isn’t she?!?! Happy Friday, Dorothy!

    I don’t remember finishing the 2nd Matched book. Did you like it? You’ll have to let me know how Reached is!

      I did. It was awhile back though, so I need to refresh my memory!!

    I’ll be making cookies this weekend as well. I’m on the down low as far are my ususal extravaganza…Just a few to share. And, your peppermint clouds cookies, well, I just may have to venture into those very, very soon. Think: peppermint kahlua! Happy Holidays, Dorothy!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA I love the Ginger ornament! So amazing. I want one for Mannie and Oreo, but I would just need to look at my dinner plate (sigh) to find the hair I needed. UGH for having hairy dogs, amirite? Callie needs one now :)

      I know, right? The plates, the floor, the bed, the couch…shall I go on???

    That’s great about all the new likes, Dorothy. I didn’t realise so many scrolled that far down.. LOL. I’ve been noticing a rise in my FB likes too since my social networking is higher on my WP blog now but wonder if installing the box will make a difference.

    And E.T. I’m with you on that one. I used to love E.T as a child myself but I knew lots of people that were terrified. And the whole dying scene isn’t age appropriate for a 7 y/o!

      It makes a HUGE difference!

    Haven’t you been a busy little elf!! Your treats are so festive and look simply divine!

    Ummm, ok. I will install a like box πŸ˜‰
    Your photos are so beautiful, Dorothy!! Good job!
    I need to read water for elephants. It’s been on my list for awhile.

    I’m reading the beach house by Jane green. Pretty good! I spent 12 weeks with The Host and finally gave up. Just awful.


    • crazyforcrust replied on December 9th, 2012 at 4:11 pm

      I’ve read that! It’s good. I’ve heard that about The Host, never tried it. :)

    Thanks for the tip on the Facebook like button! I’ll be doing that tonight (because I TOTES need more things to help me procrastinate from studying for finals tomorrow).

    I’ve never seen the dog hair thing done before, but my mom recently discovered that a friend makes clay-dough ornaments and so she’d given us a cartoony clay version of our pug each year since we got married. :-)

      How adorable! I’d hang that on my tree. Good luck with finals!
