Happy Friday! The weekend is so very welcome, as this was our first full week back to the grind after a very odd week last week due to the flu bug hitting our house. I am excited for this weekend, as we have a wedding tomorrow (and a kid free night!) and I am also finally getting my hair done tomorrow morning. It has only been 9 months, you guys. Of all of the things I spend money on, getting my hair done seems to be one of the first things I cut out. I am so excited for some fresh color and a cut, although I never end up doing anything drastic and usually look just about the same after all is said and done. I just go for the head massage and the free cup of coffee. Keeping it real over here 😉 Before we start the weekend, as always I am linking up to share some Friday Favorites!
January in Minnesota is dreary. We have barely see the sun, the days are long and dark, and it is too cold to do much. But tulips are apparently in season, and they were only $1.99 for five stems at our grocery store, and they brighten up the kitchen area so much! Yay for flowers and some fresh blooms during the longest month of the year.
2. Easter Apparel
It has been so gloomy around here lately, that I couldn’t help but get sucked into Old Navy and all of their fun new spring apparel. I always love dressing my boys for Easter, and saw these yellow pants and almost died. They are like little boy sunshine all bottled up into the most perfect pair of khakis! I am thinking I will pair them with an oxford top and boat shoes. And who can forget the fedora! Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE dressing little boys!?
3. DIY Felt Ball Garland
Yesterday I posted a tutorial on how I made my felt ball garland. It was such a fun post to write, and I got a lot of positive feedback from people who are interested in trying it out!
It seems intimidating, but I promise it is not that bad and really fun. I don’t think there is anything better than the satisfaction of looking at décor in your home and knowing it was your creation.
4. Striped Tee
I have talked about these long sleeve tees from the Gap before. They are long, so soft, and super comfy. Well, I have also been on the hunt for a perfect striped tee, and just saw they came out with a striped version! I about died. These are seriously the best tees ever. I want all of the colors!
5. New glasses
For the first time in literally a decade (I kid you not) I finally got new glasses this week! I got some bolder frames which are totally out of my comfort zone, but I’m kind of loving them! Fun fact, I have been wearing glasses since I was three years old, so while a lot of people love them, they have always been a burden and generally a pain in the you know what to me. My husband always gets the side eye from me when he says he wants some glasses to wear, even though he doesn’t need them, haha! With all of my sports and activities as a child, I started wearing contacts at 8 years old, and never looked back. But I just might start rocking these glasses a bit more than I historically have, because they are actually kind of cute!
I hope you all have fun weekends ahead. It is the last one of January, we survived the toughest month of the year! Now if spring would arrive next week, that would be great 😉
