Friday Favorites: 12/12/14

This week totally seemed like it took forever, but Friday seemed to sneak up on me and I can’t believe it’s here! Happy day! Looking forward to spending some time with friends (annual Christmas party!), family (headed to the Lake) and some sister time (going to a play).

Here are the things that made me smile this week. . .because you guys know, it’s the little things that make life wonderful!! Smile


My holiday Jamberry nails.


I’ve gotten a ton of compliments and they just make me smile. .  . I mean, come on, pink reindeer –> awesomesauce.

My latest favorite candy. Luke got some sour patch kids while trick or treating and it reignited my love for sour sweet candy. I. cannot. get. enough.


Visiting Santa! Seriously, he looks so grown up in this photo. Also, his little sweater vest + plaid button down (from Fabletics for Kids). I die.


Abby got groomed this week. She looks so cute and I love the cuteness of the Christmas flower on her collar.


Coffee Wednesday. Is that a thing? It should be. Smile


Listening to Pandora holiday at work. ‘Tis the season. Smile


And it helps to balance out when I am in the car with Luke and all he wants to hear is either the Chipmunks song or Hippopotamus song(I want a hippopotamus for Christmas) on repeat. and again. and again. and again. Super fun. Winking smile

Off to work and then headed to the Lake this afternoon. Hope you have a great weekend. What are you up to?? What made you smile this week?

Linking up with Heather and Claire this week!

    Oh yes coffee Wednesday should definitely be a thing! As should coffee Monday, coffee Tuesday… 😉

    Love how close Christmas is getting – this weekend I’m getting the last of my presents sorted and (hopefully!) wrapped!

  8. Are the Jamberry nails easy to put on? Do they stay on well too? I could use a good substitute for my $50 no chip manicure.

      Thanks Ashley!! And I cannot believe that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away. 🙂 I can’t remember – did I send you a sample of Jamberry nails to check out??

  10. Hi Katie,

    Actually someone sent me a pack with two sample nails, but since there are only two, I never put them on hahahaa. 🙂

    Your dog looks so adorable! <3 I also had no idea they had a Fabletics for kids. (If I were to do any sort of subscription box, Fabletics would be it! <3 cute workout clothes!)
