Friday Favorites!

Friday, November 16, 2018

Hi friends!! 
Happy Friday!!!

How has your week been?? I feel like our's flew by! 
It's been rainy and gloomy here all week...which does NOTHING for my productivity. 
Please just give me all the blankets, coffee and PJ pants and don't make me do anything. HA!

Okay...time to share a few FAVORITES from the past week!

Can I tell you how GRATEFUL we are to be only 90 minutes from the ocean?? We recently went and spent the day with Aaron's brother and his family (who live in a beach town) and it was just SO fun. We love the ocean any time of the year- not just in the summer. The kids had a ball getting their feet wet and looking for shells. 
It still feels surreal that we live so close to the beach!!
Aaron took the boys out to run some errands this past Saturday and my sweet James walked in with this beautiful bouquet of flowers!!
He was SO precious and kept on asking if I loved them. He is such a wild little boy but has such a SWEET heart!!
Ok. So this isn't a FAVORITE...yet. 
I need all of your opinion on this Funnel Neck Pullover Sweatshirt from Gap. 
I personally think it looks SO cozy and would be so cute with leggings and Uggs or with jeans and tall boots. I also could see myself wearing it with my PJ pants and just being super comfy. My question is: do you think the funnel neck is too much?? Like it might feel a little suffocating to wear?? Much to my surprise..Aaron likes it. So I have his vote. What do you think?? Do you happen to already own this sweatshirt?? If you do- give me your reviews!! It is VERY expensive, priced at $ I am crossing my fingers it goes on sale for Black Friday or Cyber Monday...and if it does I am thinking I will at least buy and try it out! I can always return it!
Anyway...major yes? or heck no?
Give me your vote!!
I got our sunroom all decorated for Christmas and it is definitely my FAVORITE space in our house right now!!!
This is a view from the back corner of the sunroom.
I have always wanted to have wreaths hanging in a bunch of windows and I was SO excited to put them up last weekend!! 
 This is a view from the door leading out to the sunroom from our living room. I just got the rug and the coffee table. What do you think about the coffee table? Do you think it goes with everything else?? I think I love it...but then I have moments I am not sure. 
Either way... this space has definitely become the new FAVORITE spot for all of us to hangout!
This weekend is Aaron's weekend to work and he already knows he's pretty much going to be living at the hospital. So...the kiddos and I will be rocking it out on our own! I don't have big plans except the girls and I are volunteering at our local food bank on Saturday morning and the girls want to make pillowcases for their travel pillows.
 (we are road tripping next week!)
If I can also get the laundry that I have ignored all week done...I will feel like I am winning at life. 
But before I do any of that...I will be drinking LOTS of coffee! HA!
Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
I sure hope whatever you have going get some time to exhale and just enjoy the moment. Being still and quiet is underrated.....even when I just sit down, in a quiet space, for 5 mindset and physical well being is SO much better. Give it a try!! 

 Hope you have a FABULOUS Friday and a WONDERFUL weekend!!

  1. I love that pullover from Gap! Now I want it :) It's actually 40% off with the promo code "GIFT" making it $47.97 just so you know!

    1. Ooh! That’s a good deal!! I am going to hold out for cyber Monday and see if I can get it even cheaper!😆

  2. The pullover looks so cozy! I say go for it! Have a wonderful weekend:)

    1. Doesnt it??? I am totally getting it!🙌🏻

  3. I LOVE that coffee table. It works perfectly with the room. Have a great weekend!

    1. Oh thank you for telling me that!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend too!!💗

  4. I highly recommend the funnel neck! I saw a review by Erin last year and bought it - for some reason I am thinking you're tall like her, too?? I am 5'10" and I buy a lot of what Erin recommends because she around 5'9" I think? Anyway the neck does take a sec to get used to but is sooooo cozy (no scarf required when you're wearing it).
    Also wanted to say yay for living close to the beach! We live in Wilmington, NC about 15 minutes away from the ocean and love going for a walk on the beach when it's chilly! Here is the post from Erin on the Gap sweatshirt:
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Oh my goodness!!

      Thank you for telling me about this blog post!!
      I really do think it’s so cozy and cute and I already have it in cart shopping cart for the Black Friday sale 😆

      That is SO fun you live in Wilmington!!!
      My brother’s friends own a home in Kure Beach- so we always pass through Wilmington on the way there!

      We are closest to Atlantic Beach and we Love the beach at Fort Macon!

      We could not be happier living in North much to do is almost overwhelming!! In a good way!

      Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

  5. I love your sun room. We're leaving bright and early for a huge road trip - the longest we've ever gone!

  6. I love your sun room and all the wreaths hanging up. Also you are so lucky to be so close to the beach and that beautiful weather. I love that letter board and think I need to change my classroom letter board to this. Safe travels this coming week!


I love hearing from you! Let's keep it nice though...ain't nobody got time for anything else!
