Friday Favorites... All Things Cozy

This Friday, I'm posting all things 'cozy'.  It has been cold and rainy here for what seems like all of October.  That being the case, cozy is on my mind a lot.  Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite cozy things.

I'm linking up today with Andrea, Erika, & Narci.


This magazine is worth the money. 
I can't tell you how many magazines I have bought that I flip through and then don't try a single recipe.  Some have ingredients that I've never heard of or the food isn't that original or it's too different for my style.  Well I lucked out on this magazine.  I just thought I'd give you a heads up, in case you're wanting some yummy new recipes.


This tomato soup from Costco is my favorite. You just shake it up and pour it into a bowl or a mug and heat it up.  Put it back in the fridge and you have at least 2 more days worth.  It's my favorite... I probably eat this for lunch 3-4 days a week.


We've been working on puzzles and playing cards which is one of our favorite things to do once it gets colder out.


 Snuggled up on my bed on a Saturday morning with a cup of coffee, a blanket and a good book is my love language.

I'm in the middle of a book right now, and when I'm done I'm thinking I could reread Gone With The Wind...

or maybe even reread Redeeming Love.  I end up reading Redeeming Love about once every 2 years, and I think it's about time.  I have yet to find a book that I like better.  It's the best book all wrapped up in one.


One Fine Day, is one of my all time favorite movies.  Definitely an oldie, but a goodie.

I watched You've Got Mail, a couple weeks ago as well, and it falls into the same category.  I Love it!

And Grumpier Old Men, because it's just funny, and who doesn't love a good laugh.  :)


Slippers and blankets are cozy necessities.  These slippers from Amazon are cute and they're only $19.99.

I just bought a blanket similar to this one, but I got mine at Costco instead and in a lighter color.  I don't know about your families, but my crew loves blankets.  I think they each get a new blanket each year.  They slowly start to take over mine, and then I get myself a new one and then I get them a new one so they'll leave mine alone.  But in time, they gravitate back towards my blanket and the cycle continues, as it's never my old blanket they want, it's always the new one.  Anyone else understand this madness that I speak of?


The next time I make it out of town and stop at Bath & Body Works, I will be buying this candle.  Salted Carmel anything is my favorite!

Well, that's my list of favorites for the week.  What do you think of, when you think of cozy? 
Have a great weekend!



  1. All things cozy indeed! That salted caramel candle looks so good. And what an awesome idea to read gone with the wind again.

  2. Love all things cozy as well! I might have to pick up that slow cooker magazine - I'm the same way where I'll pick some up and don't use any recipes so this one might be a game changer :)

    1. I can't wait to try out quite a few of the recipes. I don't know that I'll actually use the slow cooker for all of them, but I love getting new recipes and ideas that I'll actually use. :)

  3. Thanks all the great cozy ideas! I wonder how a slow cooker pecan pie would turn out!? Also, thanks for the tip on the soup. I love the idea of a reclosable lid!

  4. We love cozy blankets at our house! And we also get ours at Costco!

  5. Yay for cozy weather! I need new slippers so bad. And that magazine is right up my alley. Have a great weekend Jenny!

  6. Enjoyed your favorites! And, I so agree, Redeeming Love is one of my most favorite all time reads. And, got to have my throw!!!! Happy week!

  7. I have been wanting to read Redeeming Love since the day I finished it and that was many years ago! I need to read it again. I've had that brand of soup before and I thought it was delicious. And we've been so into puzzles this year. We've always got a family one going :)
