Welcome to the weekend, my friends! I’m super excited for you all today because there are already so many giveaways live on the site and there are more to come! You sent some terrific ideas my way last Saturday. Thank you!

I sent out the first gift on Saturday night (a cast iron Dutch oven) to Jeanie who suggested it. However, so many of you suggested a Dutch oven, it’s on the giveaway list now!

Click on over to each one and leave a comment to be entered:

Day 1 - $150 donation to the charity of the winner’s choice

Day 2 - Cookbooks for 2 (2 copies each of The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook and The Weekday Lunches and Breakfasts Cookbook)

Day 3 - Cuisinart Double Belgian Waffle Maker

Day 4 - Lodge 6 QT Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven

ON THE BLOG this week: All the fun giveaways, plus these Cheddar Bacon Green Chile Waffles - I have been making them on repeat for the past 6 months and I’m so happy to finally be sharing them with you!

And this Mexican White Bean and Cabbage Soup is just what you need now that the weather has finally cooled off.

What I’m CRAVING: These Glazed Cranberry Orange Scones from Inside BruCrew Life are perfect for the holiday season. And this Warm Fig and Prosciutto Goat Cheese Dip by Iowa Girl Eats is going to be happening soon. Doesn’t that sound incredible?

My FAVORITE THING this week is this blanket scarf (link HERE). I’ve bought three of them this year and I love them. They’re super lightweight, but warm. The colors are terrific and the price? It can’t be beat. (Yet another thing I’m looking forward to wearing and using all the time in Ohio!)

What I’m WATCHING: Gilmore Girls (link HERE) This show just never gets old. I started watching it one year while wrapping Christmas presents and as a result I always seem to watch again during the holiday season. And yes, I’m such a fan I own the whole series on DVD - but YAY for being able to stream it now on Netflix too!

What I’m READING: Becoming Mrs. Lewis: The Improbable Love Story of Joy Davidman and C. S. Lewis by Patti Callahan (link HERE) This book came highly recommended by several of you and I’m looking forward to diving into it this week. I just downloaded it last night. So, I’ll keep you posted!

“To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” - Mark Twain

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
