Friday Favorites: 12/20/13

Hey guys – happy weekend!! *almost. . .

Anyone else have a ton of stuff to do to get ready for Christmas? Yup, me too. I am in a total scramble to get Luke’s Christmas present. We didn’t finally decide what we wanted to get him until about a week ago and now we can’t find it anywhere!! It wouldn’t be the end of the world to give it to him after Christmas, because he’s too young to know any better right now, but it would still be a bit of a bummer. I have a couple more ideas of places to check out, so keep your fingers crossed for me!

Anyway, I am off to run errands and try to get everything organized, here are my favorites from this week. . .

How Mom kisses make it all better. Whenever Luke gets hurt, he comes over to Mom for kisses to make it better. And it totally works. Love it.

HauteLook (<—FYI referral link) – have you guys heard of this site? It is basically awesome stuff for great prices by Nordstrom’s. It is one site that I now check out every day. And I totally have their app too. Winking smile

Just a warning – if you see something that you like, don’t wait on it, things go fast!!

Decorations at Luke’s daycare. .  . They always decorate the doors for each holiday and the ones for Christmas this year are so cute!


Luke handing out the present jars to the daycare staff. Such a little Santa. And they loved them, so that was awesome too!!


Luke helping. I was doing laundry this morning and Luke was “helping”. Scott asked Luke what he was doing and he said “I helping Mommy.” Seriously, that kid just melts my heart.


My first red cup of the season. Deliciousness.


Jamberry Christmas nails.


Baby nap time = getting presents wrapped


1st haircut in 18 months. . . glorious.

      Thanks for linking up Alex!! And Jamberrys would be super cute for your cruise!! Lots of good design options. 🙂

  2. I don’t have munchins…but my aunt used to space out her kids presents, they would get 2 a day and christmas lasts for more like 5 days, it kept the kids occupied while the grownups had get togethers!

    Oooh I’ve never heard of Hautelook! I have a feeling it could be dangerous though 😉 Good luck with Luke’s Christmas present!! You could also order it and have it overnight shipped!

      OMG Becky – hautelook will be crazy dangerous and fabulous for you!! And if only Target had overnight shipping. . . but they DON’T!! Can you call someone about that?? 😉

  4. I second baby nap time! Definitely a favorite!

    Luke is so cute – I hope Atlas likes helping me 1 day!

    You haircut looks great! It’s always a great feeling after going a little but without one. Have you ever tried some type if bangs? I think they would look great on you.

  7. Your hair is cute! 🙂
    Good luck finding that Christmas gift for Luke. We went a little overboard this year and the boys are going to be so glad we did 🙂 recently posted..2013 ~ Year of Running ReviewMy Profile
