Friday Favorites: 12/13/13

Happy Friday!!

After being on vacation last week, this week seemed to take forever. . . but now, it is finally Friday!! woo hoo. . . cue happy dancing. Smile Looking forward to a low key weekend around here. Going to start some Holiday baking, have a few new recipes I am excited to try, and one old crockpot favorite. Also, looking forward to getting some runs in and checking out BODYPUMP 88!!

And as usual, a few of my favorites from the past week.

Holiday decorations. Now that our house is Christmas-everything including our 1st real tree, I loved pulling these crafts out that Laura and I did with Luke and Abby last year.  ..



Sweet messages from my husband. . . extra points that he reads my blog.



My husband really enjoying his Wild Harvest cereal. . . PS – Wild Harvest if you are reading this, can you please send more?? No, like really, he ate that whole box in less than 24 hours. . .  #iwishiwaskidding


New chapstick at work. <it really is all the little things!>


Good deeds. This caramel skim latte was courtesy of the person in front of me at Panera. Now, I just have to pay it forward.


Secret Santa. We are doing this at work, and my “Santa” left this awesome granola bar on my desk. It was the perfect afternoon snack.


Tell me something that made you smile this week! And what are you up to this weekend???

  3. When I first saw the chapstick, I was convinced it was really one of those destresser balls and I had read something wrong, haha. Also, I LOVE the conversation between you and Scott–so glad I’m not the only one apologizing for failed dinners!
