Friday Favorites – The Last of the Year

Happy Friday dolls!  I cannot believe this is the end of the year.  Honestly, I cannot believe how fast time is going.  Patrick is already over three weeks old.  The last few weeks have been the most amazing blur.  I’m still in awe every day of this little man that he’s actually mine.  He is seriously the sweetest baby.  I took him to the Peditrician the other day and he’s already 8 1/2 pounds.  He has gained two pounds since he was born.  Usually you want them to gain their birth weight back the first two weeks and this kiddo is already up two pounds.  He is a champ at nursing.  I am so thankful to have had my mother and sister help me at the beginning.  We have been so lucky with our supportive families.  It really does take a village!  Let’s get into some favorites from the week!




There are still some great holiday sales going on if you’re not too shopped out.  Make sure to check out my post here for a complete round up.




The Container Store still has 30% off their Elfa closet storage going on.  I have a full post coming up next week of my review for you.  It has been such a game changer in Patrick’s nursery.  If you have been debating this, now is the time to jump on it.  I have never seen it for such a discount.



Now is the time to stock up on your Winter favs from Nordstrom because it is all on sale!  Check out this BP long cardigan for under $30.  How adorable are these pj’s?  These over the knee boots are half off and sold out immediately during the first sale of them.  This soft pink cardigan was always sold out when I tried to get it!  Grab it now before it goes again.  I love this peplum top!  These Baublebar earrings would be perfect for New Years and are just over $20!  I have this Blank NYC Moto jacket and absolutely love it!



Shopbop has a great sale on top of their sale going!  This leads to some MAJOR discounts.  I am majorly loving the color, fit, and price point of these Levi’s 721 jeans.  These Vanessa Mooney earrings are such pretty statement pieces and are Baublebar prices with the sale code.  My absolute favorite dress by Likely is on serious sale in the cobalt blue color here.  Eberjay makes the most comfortable pj’s, check out their sale pieces here.  These kinds of sales are the best time to stock up on BB Dakota sale favorites.  I am loving this burnout velvet dress and this floral embroidered dress that I have and absolutely love.  Schutz has some incredible deals including these leather wrap strap heels which come out to just under $50.




How yummy does this recipe look?  This would be a great dish to bring to a family gathering.




An excellent photography tutorial on how to shoot with the golden hour and getting the best outcomes.




Now it’s your turn!  Link up and tell me your favorites from the week and how your holiday was!

    I’ve been so absent from the blogging world lately, but I have been following along here and there on Instagram. Just let me say your little boy is PRECIOUS! I am so happy for you and as one of the first blogs I ever started reading, I cannot be more thrilled for the both of you! May 2018 bring you even more joy and blessings! (:
