Friday Favorites!

Friday, January 27, 2017

Hi friends!! Happy Friday!!
I have been MIA for most of the week...the boys were sick with a yucky stomach virus last weekend, my daughter caught the tail end of it on Monday, which resulted in her having to stay home from school for 3 days and then I got sick! UGH! I started feeling yucky on Sunday...started running a fever on Monday and ended up at the doctor on Wednesday afternoon. I got a yucky case of bronchitis. BLEH. SO grateful for modern medicine...I am feeling SO much better after taking an antibiotic for a couple of days!

Needless to say...not too much has been going on here except trying to keep all the germs away, the laundry from not over flowing and me drinking an insane amount of hot tea. HA!

I sure hope your week has been healthier than our's has been...and if you are in the same boat- I FEEL YOU. I really do! :)

Soooo...enough talk about being sick. Let's talk about some of my FAVORITES from this past week!

LOVING this tunic sweatshirt my mom got me!!! It is from Nordstrom (I searched high and low for it on their website- but it's gone!! Must have sold out!) and she ordered it last fall during the semi-annual sale. It is SO comfy, can totally be worn with leggings (full booty coverage for the win) for a comfy "at-home" outfit, but it also looks really cute dressed up with dark jeans, boots and a vest! P.S. I have no idea how so many people take such great mirror selfies. I am ridiculously awkward and you don't even want to know how long it took me to take this picture! HA!
I felt REALLY bad on Tuesday night and as soon as Aaron got home from work, I crawled into bed and let him wrangle our Fab 5 :) I passed out while the kids played and had dinner and when I woke up- I had these two adorable get well cards on my nightstand!!! Can you even handle the cuteness??? 

So- I am a BIG fan of shopping clearance sales and getting things for NEXT Christmas, birthdays that are several months away, etc. I just had to share with you my receipt from a recent order I placed with Crazy 8. These were all items that were on clearance and then I had an extra 15% off coupon AND free shipping- no minimum. I picked up my girls' Christmas jammies for THIS year for $5.09 each!! I always get my girls an outfit for their Easter basket and was able to score shirts for each of them for less than $3.00 and fun shorts for $3.55!! I got them each a really pretty heart shirt for Valentine's Day- they were $3.56 each!! BOOM! So excited about the deals I got and LOVE everything I ordered!! 
Do you ever shop at Crazy 8??? They have a TON of CUTE stuff and their sizes range from baby all the way to big kids! 
They also have GREAT customer service- one of the shirts I ordered had a little stain on it- the representative I spoke with was great and emailed me a free shipping label and promptly ordered me a new shirt at the same price I had purchased it!

With all the sickness that has been going around our can imagine how much laundry I have been doing. You know what's been making me happy to load after load?? These Purex Cyrstals...I LOVE this Fabulously Fresh scent!!! I used several of the other scents Purex Crytals and loved them all- they make your clothes smell SO good!!

SO happy Friday is here :) We have a fun weekend ahead of us! Today, my youngest 3 kiddos and I are going to do a little birthday shopping for Aaron! His birthday is on Sunday!! And tomorrow night, we are going on a double date with some great friends to a new brewery that just opened up in the little downtown area of our town. My girls have informed me they would like to play "lots of games" and my oldest daughter wants to pick out her First Communion dress. Needless to say, we have BIG plans this weekend! HA!
Hope you have the BEST day and a WONDERFUL weekend!!!
