Friday Favorites

The first work week of 2017 is (almost) over, we made it, friends!!!  It was actually really nice to be back into a routine again, we all really do best that way and I always find that weekends are that much more exciting after a long week.  We are double excited about this weekend, SNOW is in the forecast and we are crossing our fingers that they actually got it right this time!  We've been doing snow dances non-stop and Waverly is begging to "make herself an ice queen".  We really didn't get much more than a dusting last year, so I would love to see both our little girls in the snow together this time around!

I thought I would share some things I have been loving lately, there's nothing quite like curing your post-holiday blues with some new pretty things! :)  We have been replacing our reds & greens from Christmas with brights and pastels, it's been so much fun to lighten up and has me all kinds of ready for spring.


This throw from Anthro is gorgeous, I can think of so many places that I would love to put it!!!  We recently got this quilt from there, I think I posted about it when we got it but haven't shared how much we absolutely love it.  It is way more expensive than any of the comforters we have gotten before, but you can tell the difference so much!  It gets softer and even more beautiful with every wash, and already has held up to two kids jumping on it at least once a day.

My mom got me this book for Christmas, it's specifically for moms, and basically you write one sentence at the end of each day.  I have loved this so far, it kind of goes along with choosing one positive part of each day no matter what, which I started doing a couple months back.  It really is amazing how doing this completely shifts your way of thinking, and helps remind you of how much goodness there is in this crazy season of life!  I really have a hard time picking just one sentence each night!

We are always looking to the next holiday over here, so Valentine's Day brainstorming is under way!!!  I actually walked into Waverly bringing out the Valentine's books in the playroom the other day, we have already been reading them each night!  I love these leggings, I got them for Waverly along with these tights for Avalon, and have been eyeing this countdown calendar, I know both girls would have so much fun with this!

And lastly, just a couple pictures to go along with the first!  We recently went ice skating, or actually Joe and Waverly went ice skating while the other half of the family watched, because Avalon was too little and I was the worst ever.  This was our second year in a row, Waverly had a really hard time last year (she got frustrated easily) but did much better this time around and it was precious!!!!  Also pictured, Avalon showing off her lips with a face stained from candy, how I will forever remember her from the holidays this year! :)


Wishing you a very warm, happy, fun-filled weekend!

  4. We are going to an ice skating party in a few weeks and I'm so excited and nervous! The idea is fun, but who's going to fall down first - the kids or me??

  5. We took Mason skating for the first time over winter break and I can't say that he loved it (he went around twice and then said that was enough) but it sure was cute to watch! I was so proud that he even went out there and that he didn't fall (even though he had a death grip on Seth the whole time lol).

  6. We love ice-skating! But it's is definitely hard with he baby/toddler. And I too am already moving on to Valentine's Day. Just bought some conversation hearts the other day and we have a few heart banners up!
