Friday Favorites: Mid-Week Edition

It's moving week which means I will probably be signing off for a couple days after this, but we've run out of boxes so I'm off the packing hook until we get more tomorrow morning. ;)  That being said, I thought I'd pop in + share some Friday Favorites a little bit early this week!

Not trying to get too far ahead of myself here, but I did notice a few adorable new Valentine's Day arrivals at the Gap - loving these red heart print leggings in particular.  Also, these tights hanging out in the J.Crew sale section can be grabbed at a super steal with code HOLIDAY + free shipping!  I personally think they'd make a perfect stocking stuffer, AND you'd be planning ahead for the next holiday on the calendar! ;)

If you're a fan of Fancy Free Finery, you'll definitely want to join their Friends + Family Facebook group now if you haven't already - they're giving away five $50 store credits this Christmas season!  Instagram is great and all, but I always check to see if my favorite small shops have closed Facebook groups as well. FFF is probably one of the best ones I know of, but generally speaking, these types of groups tend to have FB exclusive giveaways, promo codes, sneak peeks, etc.  Definitely worth checking out!  Also, if you're part of a group that you think I'd like, please send the link my way. :)

I have yet to buy anything from Childhoods Clothing but have heard nothing but good things.  I always love their styles and have been a little bit obsessing over their Ski 1941 collection that comes out this Wednesday. Like seriously, how cute + cozy is this?!

These festive cookies look so good and I know Ellie would love them too.  She had her very first candy cane last weekend and chomped away at it like there was no tomorrow!


I loved reading this article.  Not saying that sharing the real meaning of Christmas isn't important, that you shouldn't give back this holiday season, or that you have to spoil your own kids like crazy... but, thinking back to that feeling of coming down the stairs to see all of the gifts under our tree when we were little is something I will never forget. The magic of Christmas definitely isn't all about the gifts, but I totally can't wait for the day when I get the "OMG" reaction from Ellie on Christmas morning.  I hope to create the same kind of special memories that I have for her and all of our future babies. :)

Lastly, Ellie in her heart sunnies that she randomly decided she enjoys wearing this week (preferably while listening to "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" so she can jam).  Crossing all my fingers + toes that she loves the "fashion glasses" Santa is bringing in her stocking! ;)  Way too much cuteness.

Hope you're all having a great week!
