Friday Favorites

Friday, December 12, 2014

This week has been absolutely crazy around here and I couldn't be more excited for the weekend! Of course I'm linking up again with Amanda, Christina and the rest of the Five on Friday crew!

Baking

Finally having some weekends at home is giving me a chance to get some festive Christmas stuff done, like baking cookies! Though I admit I'm really struggling not to eat the cookie dough... I'm a huge sugar cookie fan and decided this year I'd do them a little differently with royal icing. I can't wait to share these with you next week!

Christmas Cards



Minted has done it again! Even though I switched the design from "the more the merrier" at the last minute, I love our cards this year! (You can see ours from last year here) And the free recipient addressing was such a good call, especially since my hand is still cramped from writing out baby shower thank yous! Definitely recommend!

Nursery Progress

Pom Pom Throw (they have lots of colors, love this one too!). Name Blocks. Elephant.
Y'all we're finally getting somewhere in the nursery with just 9 (or less) weeks to go! Thanks to a Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware Baby sale (20% off everything with the code PRIVATE), I managed to commit to some things for the room! And I'm loving the pom pom blanket and name blocks above... they would be great gifts actually!

J. Crew Factory Sale

Just wanted to give y'all a heads up, J. Crew Factory is having a huge sale in the store! My husband picked up my favorite jeans for $15. (Let's hope I can fit in them post-baby... eek!) Everything is 50% off plus you get another 15-20% off at the register. Major Christmas shopping opportunities here people! I may not fit into much but that won't stop me from raiding the accessories and shoes... or sweatpants.

Christmas Link Up

Holiday Linkup

Don't forget about the last of the holiday link ups with me, Lisa, Katie, and Annie on Tuesday! Share your favorite Christmas cookie recipes, decor, traditions, etc. I can't wait to see all the festive posts!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Only one more before Christmas, can you believe it?!
