πŸŽ„ 5 Friday Favorites πŸŽ„

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a great week!

My husband is coming home today!! I mentioned in the post yesterday how I was having a down day. It was because Nathan was on a business trip. Nothing like a good work trip to make you realize how much you need your man. Don't get me wrong, we were fine and I am happy with the way I can hold the fort down but there was just a little sadness in all of us. He completes us and we are so EXCITED to see him!

Onto my 5 Favorites for the week...
It was my sweet daughter, Brookie’s birthday πŸŽ‚ 

Poor little Brookie. It was a hard day for her without her daddy but we had plenty of visitors and birthday fun. We went to see Frozen II w a group of friends and then came home for cupcakes. One of her little friends who is also homeschooled was able to stay the night w us as well so that made it extra fun. We will have another cake tonight so daddy can sing her happy birthday as well. 

2 Fave is Spanx.
I have just discovered these and I see what all the raving is about. Believe the hype, y'all. These are SO worth every penny and for some reason the pair below are on sale for under $15I ordered them and have already worn them twice.

So comfy and the perfect dark gray.  I love these white Spanx as well...
All of these Spanx jeans are currently under $25

In this post I wrote about Fall Fashion in Texas and how we have to dress in removable layers. One day can start out in the upper 40s and end up in the 70s .
I found this ADORABLE cozy scarf that is faux sherpa lined and I am pretty much in love w anything Sherpa right now. So cozy. The one below is on sale for an additional 20% off

I love this faux sherpa lined scarf for a casual Christmas party...
Loving these as well. The pink is perfect for a teen in your life
This Michael Stars would make a luxe gift under $30

πŸŽ„4.Our Christmas Tree πŸŽ„
We ended up going with a 10 ft tree. I still think 12 would have been time ;) Ordered this one.
We already set it up so we can decorate w Daddy tonight.  

We added the flocking last night. It was different for us to not have our tree up the day after Thanksgiving but the tree didn't get here until Wednesday. Next year we will be able to revert back to our old tradition. For this year it's Elf, Hot Chocolate and Candy Canes and Christmas fun w Daddy tonight!

5. Last is this cozy and LARGE blanket
This blanket fits a twin bed so it is the perfect throw for our home. My husband is 6 ft 3 so a normal throw is usually too short for him but this one is just right! Super thick, fluffy and cozy. Also under $26. Im giving a few of these as gifts this year :)

That's it for today. In case you missed it I wrote a post on Quiet Confidence and Joyful purpose found here. It shares some insight I have gained recently that I hope you find encouraging. 
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 
Grace & peace,


  1. Enjoy your time with your man. That's a pretty tree. Those blankets would make nice gifts. Happy birthday to your daughter.

    1. Thank you, Terra. We had such a great night! He did ask for his blanket during movie time ha! Hope you are having a great weekend xo Sharon
