friday favorites

Happy Friday, everyone!

We don’t have too much scheduled this weekend, but I am excited nonetheless! I need to brave the stores for last-minute Christmas gifts, and Steve is doing some remodeling jobs (our kitchen and bathroom) now that he’s on the university’s Christmas break. (Yay!)

As usual, I am joining the gals for the Friday Favorites linkup! Let’s get started :)

Nolan had his first trip to the dentist on Tuesday! I wasn’t sure how he was going to do, but it went so well! He let the dentist count his teeth (all 20 were present and accounted for), and more surprisingly, he sat still for the electric toothbrush and water vacuum :) We treated him to a visit to the ice cream store. Believe it or not, we can still get quality $0.75 “Death by Chocolate” cones at our favorite diner!


I shared my favorite new vest with you on Wednesday! If you missed this post, here it is. My friend Hannah in Dallas won the vest for me on Instagram! Also, right now it’s being featured on sale on Groopdealz—so if you are looking to snag one, the price is right.

I posted this adorable chocolate mice recipe this week! They’re chocolate covered cherries with Hershey Kiss faces, mounted on Oreo bases. Yumm! Go here to see the recipe!

I’m loving our new Salted Caramel B&BW soap!  Christmastime has so much to do with scent—peppermint, gingerbread, pine—and now salted caramel :)

Somehow this little man keeps ending up in my bed every morning at 5 or 6. Ephraim wakes up so much throughout the night that I end up bringing him back to our bed so he doesn’t wake up Nolan. It’s not my favorite situation, but I do love waking up to his little face next to mine.

A few more favorite shots from the week to wrap this up:

What are your plans for the weekend?

Are you traveling for Christmas or cozying up at home?

  1. Oh I always get nervous when I take our son to the dentist! I just really want it to go well for him but he gets super scared and cries every time. We do a treat afterwards too... I'm trying to tie as much positivity to the experience as possible.

  2. That is the sweetest pic of Ephriam. Have a great weekend!!!!

  3. I came across your site in the linkup and love it! Also, how old is your son? I'm terrified of taking my toddler to the dentist. He freaks out even getting weighed at the doctor's office, so I can't imagine how he's going to do at the dentist.

  4. I love the Salted Caramel soap! I have it at home by the kitchen sink :) And that package under the tree is simply perfect!

  5. You are rockin that vest!! Such sweet pics of your boys :) Have a great weekend and good luck finishing your Christmas shopping!

  6. You are so pretty and that vest is really cute!!! I know what you mean about the being up several times a nigh thing with sweet E. My 9 mo is doing same thing. I pretty much feel like I am up 24/7, and I am sure you feel the same way!! One day Lord willing they will sleep better!! Thank the good Lord for them!!:)

  7. Awww! Nolan's smile is brighter than ever. I'm glad his first trip to the dentist was a success. He definitely deserved to eat ice cream. Hahaha! Anyway, that Christmas mice recipe is amazing. I am definitely going to be serving that treat this coming holiday. Thank you so much for sharing! All the best! :)
