Friday Favorites – Week 3

This week has been a complete blur for me.  I got home late Monday night from a wonderful vacation in New York City and had to jump right into mom mode.  Thank goodness my parents were still at our house to help with the night routine!  We have been busy this week and I feel like it has flown by so fast. Today I am sharing a random selection of my favorites from this past week.


I just had to share a couple of pictures from this past weekend. Fifteen years ago we stood on the Gapstow Bridge as a young couple and Danny got on one knee and proposed. A life together has grown so much since then and brought us back to this very special place.

Another highlight was going to the Today Show.  We finally had a chance to watch the show from last Friday and it was so fun to see ourselves on TV.

The day before I left for NYC I got this month’s Stitch Fix Box.  My stylist did an awesome job and I took everything with me to New York!  I will do a full review next week but I love this top!!

I think Wednesday night has become my favorite night of the week.  Kate has volleyball practice for 1.5 hours every Wednesday so that means I have 1.5 hours of one on one time with Abigail.  It is so nice to do whatever she wants to do and spend some quality time with her.  Don’t worry Kate has her own time with me too because I try to make it equal for both girls (which is so hard!)

So I told you I had some random favorites from this week and this is one of those.  Danny got me this Oster Cordless Electric Wine Bottle Opener for Christmas.  I absolutely hate to use the old school wine bottle opener.  Now I love that all I have to do is push one button and it does all the work for me!!

Girl Scout Cookies have arrived!!! This year we only have one girl scout in our household so we don’t have to sell twice as many cookies.  They have a brand new cookie this year…

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!  This cookie is sooooo good.

Kate is going to be busy for the next few weeks because she has to sell over 100 boxes of cookies.


And just for the fun of it I thought I would share a picture that I posted on Facebook this week.  I had several friends post a picture from their high school days and a current picture to see how much we have or haven’t changed.  So here is my then and now picture.

That is a wrap for this week.  I hope you have a wonderful Friday!!

  1. We are selling cookies too, but from the other baking company. Our s’mores are so yummy! i might have to get my hands on one of those boxes and try them. Good luck with your sales!

  2. Seriously….isn’t that wine opener the BEST?!! I LOVE it and the price point makes it a super gift idea for friends! Can’t wait to catch up on all your NYC posts….January has definitely hit me hard. And girl…you are going to have to email me the name of your stylist because I need her in my life….your boxes have rocked!

  3. Happy Friday! Hooray for revisiting such a special spot during your trip, seeing yourself on tv, one on one girl time, wine, & cookies! How could a week get better than that?! 😉 Hope the weekend to come is just as sweet! xo – Brenda //
