Friday Favorites: Feeling the love

Whew. Finally Friday!

We don’t have any plans for the weekend other than dinner with friends tomorrow night and I am excited. There is more work to be done on the house – probably some painting will happen this weekend, I still need to check out BODYPUMP 96 and I am hoping to get some Christmas shopping done.

This week I was totally feeling the love. . .

My best blends (Becky, Melanie, and Caroline) sent me a care package. With a new smoothie cup, some Target trail mix,


and a new dinosaur friend for Luke. . . which has not left his side since he got it. And he named it “Fluffy.” Love it.


I had the day off on Wednesday and I was able to meet my Mom and sister half way at a little outlet mall for some lunch,


and shopping. . . I may have gone overboard at BBW – but hey – it was all on sale. Smile 


I was totally surprised (like had to “sit down on the floor after GRIT” surprised) by my friends at the YMCA with a “Tree for Life” planted in memory of Dad. It is the perfect gift and I am just blown away by their support and friendship. #soluckytohavethem


And due to a delivery mix up, my Hello Fresh package this week ended up in WI. I asked my sister to pick it up and use it so it wouldn’t go to waste. Not only did she pick it up, but she brought it when we met on Wednesday so that our family could use it. Gosh, that was so nice. And we had some delicious burgers (Italian ciabatta burgers with carmelized onions and arugula).


Seriously, if you haven’t checked out Hello Fresh – try it! You won’t be disappointed. Use this code –> QTHC5N for $40 off your first box.

What made you smile this week? Plans for the weekend??

Linking up with Friday fun with Heather!

  3. That care package is so sweet! I’m also obsessed with B&BW. I bought a million candles on black friday because they were taking all coupons, even expired ones.
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Fluffy is the perfect name for a dino, LOL. Love the name, Luke! I had the most random dream about you last night. You called me to tell me you thought Luke weighed too much (obviously he is a super healthy kid) so you were only going to feed him romaine lettuce and blueberry yogurt until 2016. It was so random! I woke and was super confused, haha. Happy Friday!

      Luke still hasn’t put “Fluffy” down since he got him. He also keeps asking when we can go see Becky because he wants to see where Fluffy came from. 🙂

    How neat they planted a tree for your dad. THat is SO sweet <3

  6. That burger looks AMAZING. I’ve been avoiding making a BBW run because I am a little candle obsessed and I think I’ll definitely go overboard!
