Between early dismissals and delays for weather, plus a lot of testing at school, this week has definitely kept me on the edge of my seat! But man oh man, do I love a Friday and I have some favorites to share of course. 🙂
One. Two. Three. Four.On Sunday we had our family over for the gender reveal of Baby Spring. (Favorite #1) 🙂 It was so, so fun! Eric and I already knew what the gender was but wanted to get everyone together at once to tell them.
We had a, “make your own pasta bowl” menu with bow tie pasta, chicken, sausage, pesto sauce, and tomato and basil sauce. (This pasta bowl is a favorite! Favorite #2) A girl from our church made these adorable cake pops that looked and tasted ah-mazing! Seriously, I could go on about them. They were individually wrapped with a bow and had pink cake on the inside. I squealed a little after we picked them up. 🙂 (Favorite #3) We are so excited to meet our little girl! (Favorite #4). All of you completely blew me away with your comments on Instagram. Thank you for being so sweet and excited for us! 🙂
Five.I have been browsing a lot of baby shops lately (surprise) and have already found a few that I absolutely love! Over black Friday I ordered this teether because I thought it was so cute and I have become a huge fan of Little Peaches Shop. Plus, how cute is that name?!
Happy, happy, happy Friday! Although I’m not a fan of the cold, I have been loving the excuse to stay inside and snuggle up. Call me crazy, but I’m trying to enjoy this season for what it’s worth. 😉
I made my Crock-pot Chicken Enchilada Soup this week. It took about five minutes to chop everything up and put it all in the crock-pot. SO EASY! These are some of my favorite spices to have on hand and that used in the soup! You can click on the picture to buy them. 🙂Two.
Minted did such an amazing job on our Christmas card. Since a few lovebirds (included my cousin!) got engaged over the holidays, I thought I’d let you know that they are offering 25% off Save the Dates until January 8th!
We had a delay that turned into a snow day on Thursday, which is always fun/a favorite!
Four.My collection of essential oils has grown a little bit and I wanted something to keep them organized. I found this organizer which holds 68 bottles and has space for rollers too. I feel like a new women after organizing them all! 🙂 Plus, it’s made extremely well and an ah-mazing price!
Five.My friend mentioned how she loves this diffuser so I decided to give it a try. I was looking for another one since I want to have one in our room and one in the babies. I now have been using this one non-stop and decided to save the one we already own for the babies. This diffuser runs 8 hours, which is perfect for us and would be a little too long for the baby at first anyways. 😉 I also really love the look of it!
Have the best Friday, a relaxing weekend, and stay warm! xo
This week…ahh. 🙂 It was filled to the brim with great memories and A LOT of downtime. 🙂 I collected some of my favorites for the week if you want to shop them! 🙂 I’ll be back next week with some recipes for you!
Also, I’ll be sharing the gender of our baby so soon! It was the best Christmas gift to find out if we are having a baby boy or girl! 🙂 Happy New Year everyone!
This Cocokind matcha stick moisturizes my face and is great to put in my purse on the go. I originally put this on my Christmas list because I liked the simple and clean ingredients in it. Everyone also knows I love matcha. 😉 I put it on right after my face moisturizer sets on my face. It gives it that extra touch of moisture I need, especially in the winter months. I also want to try the one below. 🙂
We have a half day of school today (which will include watching Elf) and theeeeen…I have 11 glorious days off! 🙂 My goal over the holidays is to spend some time being extra cozy with blankets, books, and PJ’s included!
But first, we have an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party on Saturday! SO excited!
If your holiday events are extended beyond Christmas Day and include ugly sweaters, you can still order any of these on Amazon Prime! 🙂
Then you will most likely find me in/with some of my favorites below!Chai Tea! (You can also check out my Chocolate Chai Tea Smoothie, here!)
