Friday Favorites!

Friday, November 13, 2015

Hi!! Happy Friday!!

How was your week?? I hope it was a good one!

Our's was a good mix of busy mixed in with our regular routine...I volunteered at my daughters' preschool earlier this week, had my annual skin check at the dermatologist (PLEASE make sure you do this!! So important!) and was able to make it to the gym the last three days- so I am a happy girl :)

Time for my favorites from this past week....
they are random, as usual....that's just how I roll :)

Aaron got me a Plum Paper Planner for Christmas last year and I have been using it since this past January.  I LOVE this planner! My planner is a January - December planner- so I am very close to needing a new one....and you can bet I already hinted to my hubby that I would like another one for Christmas this year :)  
I have used several other planners/calendars and the Plum Paper Planner by far is my FAVORITE!! 
Hi. My name is Justine and I am addicted to halo mandarin oranges :) My daughter Cora and I are totally obsessed with halos and cuties and get so excited for this time of year when they are season!! My local Fresh Thyme market has them currently on sale for $1.77 / 2 pound bag (isn't that such a GREAT price??) and I am pretty sure we have gone through 4 bags in the last week.  I KNOW. HA!
They are just so so good! They are one of my FAVORITE fruits- and obviously I have no self control when it comes to eating them :)

I recently participated in a Fall blogger swap and one of the goodies my partner sent me was a Maybelline Baby Lips lip gloss.  Oh My Goodness! I LOVE this lip gloss!! She got me just the basic clear color and I use it all day long! It is SO moisturizing, doesn't get gunky on my lips and has a very slight, pleasant scent.  I am totally obsessed and can't wait to pick up another color soon! 

On Thursday's, Celine is home from preschool, and other than dropping off the two big girls at school early in the morning and picking them up in the afternoon, we don't have any where we need to be.  Yesterday, Celine, James and I went to the gym (which they LOVE) and then came home to play (them) and put away a TON of laundry (me). While I was setting out clothes to put away, this is what James and Celine were doing in her closet.  1) Do you think we have enough necklaces??? 2) Can you even stand James?? Celine told me she was turning him into her "beautiful prince!" HA! 
I love days at home with these two precious babies (even at three, I still consider Celine one of my babies :) SO SO MUCH!
For the past 5 weekends, Aaron has either been working and/or studying, we have been traveling or we have had company.  This is the first weekend we are HOME and have NO plans. I can't begin to tell you how happy this makes me.  I need to get some serious cleaning done and of course, we will go to church on Sunday...but other than that- we are just going to BE. 
I love being busy and having activities to go to- but open, relaxing weekends are definitely my FAVORITE :)
What are your plans for the weekend?
Is it a busy one for you? Whatever you have planned- I hope it is a wonderful couple days spent with all the people you love!
