This week was a loooong one! BUT, it’s Friday and I’m really thankful for that!

One.Each year I get a gift for my co-workers. When I saw this picture (leave it to the Gaines’!) I had an idea to switch things up and create a homemade gift this year. Buy aΒ mason jar, make my homemade granola, and simply put a gift tagΒ on it with a sweet note! Done! πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to hand these out!

Two.You could also make some of my Peppermint Bark. It’s definitely a crowd favorite!


Remember how I said here that we are redoing our guest room? It’s being turned into our nursery and the crib is being delivered on Saturday! πŸ™‚ How could that not be a favorite?

Four.For our wedding, we received (a round version) of thisΒ bin. I love the style of it and the fact that it holds most (we have a lot) of our blankets! I saw this the other day and ordered one since it was on sale. I now love it equally as much that I plan on ordering a few more. I’m thinking in the bathroom closet as storage? To hold books next to our desk? I have a million ideas in my head. πŸ™‚

Five.This giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m today! Make sure you enter here! Happy weekend!

Happy December everyone! This week was THE BEST!Β 


First, my class and staff at school found out that I was pregnant and everyone was SO sweet! The e-mails and how excited the kids were meant the world! It was such a special moment. πŸ™‚

Two.Telling everyone on here with our Christmas card was without a doubt, equally as fun and sweet! Thank you so much for all the kind comments. They mean more than you know! xo Also, how cute are these moccasins?! They say boy moccasins but I thought they seemed gender neutral. πŸ™‚ We did hear the heartbeat this week and scheduled our appointment to find out the gender…so we’ll know soon enough!

Three.Want to know one of the easiest entertaining meals? Start off with a salad or cheese board, serve my Autumn RoastΒ as the main meal, and my Blueberry Crisp with ice cream (or yogurt) for dessert. DONE!

I had some girls over last night and this was exactly what I served. The prep was all done before anyone arrived and I could enjoy spending time with everyone rather than running around in the kitchen. πŸ™‚

Four.Today is THE LAST day to enter for your chance at winning this set of recipe cards! You can enter the giveaway here!

How is Thanksgiving next week already?! How? I am SO excited for some down time with friends and family. But first, I’m sharing some of my very favorites from this week!


Urban Southern was on Fox News and I am SO proud of them! I love their roots, company, and products. They are just great all around! πŸ™‚

Two.On a whim, I went to a local shop and bought a metal planter/bin the other week (similar to this one). But, I wasn’t sure what I would use it for or where I would put it.

As I was driving home, a local florist was giving away some flowers and plants because they were moving to a new location. My point is, that this bin and random plant makes a little space where I have some Christmas decorations. I love it and know I will use it through all different seasons. πŸ™‚ Plus, the price (which is similar to what I paid)!


Um..we have a half day of school tomorrow and time to work on report cards. All the teachers will understand how that is definitely a necessary favorite!

Four.I just love these mugs. They are a favorite. πŸ™‚

Five.My Winter Greens Salad is one of my FAVORITES!

I hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend! xo

I can’t lie..this week felt super long. It had ups and downs but I am ready for a relaxing weekend. We’re getting our pictures taken for our Christmas card, and relaxing with friends all weekend long. πŸ™‚

One.I saw The Giving Manger the other day and couldn’t get over how cute it was! It’s an interactive activity for the family that helps families focus on giving and the true meaning of Christmas. You do random acts of kindness and fill the manger with straw for every act of kindness done. I think it is adorable!

Two.My co-worker and I always chat about our love for Hallmark movies. We decided to have a girls day of Saturday with Christmas PJ’s, a cheese spread, hot cocoa, and Hallmark movies I. Cannot. Wait!


On Tuesday, I had dinner with some friends. It was so nice to catch up mid-week and spend time together, while eating italian food. πŸ˜‰

Four.Everyone is so excited about the Chip and Joanna line, Hearth and Hand Collection at Target! Including me. πŸ™‚ I even picked up these Christmas stockings in red and white. They are already hung up for the Hallmark marathon tomorrow. πŸ™‚

Five.If you’re looking for a tasty Thanksgiving side dish, check this out! πŸ™‚ Here’s to the weekend from me to you! xo
