Friday Favorites

Well, I was planning on doing a boring old ‘Friday Favorites’ post today and then one of my favorite bloggers, Heather from Housewife Glamour decided to start a link up (which kind of makes me giddy and want to jump up and down!) for her Friday Favorites post… so here I am! Linking up with her for the first time, but definitely not the last!



Favorite #1: DIY Wreaths
Taking this one straight from the HWGlamour archives (or just a couple posts ago, whatever) I used her tutorial on a DIY Fall Wreath and made myself one last night! & I’m loving it! (Side note: it may look creepy that both of ours have an ‘H’ on them, it’s just a coincidence that both of our last names start with the same letter.)


Seriously though, this was one of the easiest crafts I have done and I love the way it turned out! If you want to take a stab at it, check out her tutorial here. 
Disclaimer: I couldn't get my super glue to hold the pipe cleaners, so I taped them on. Hoping they hold up!


Who doesn't need an adorable sequined hanger?? Answer: Everyone does! This shop has easily become a new obsession.

All of her prints are only $5 right now and her hangers are only $13! I was able to stock up on 4 of her prints yesterday and cannot wait to frame them and put them up in my house. I can only share 3 of the 4 I purchased, because one of them is a Christmas present for someone in my family ;)


I also convinced my mom to buy me the necklace holder hanger for Christmas. Downfall: She’s actually making me wait until Christmas to have it!!!

Now all I need is a regular sequined hanger (gold, of course) and my collection will be complete. Until of course the shop is restocked with more amazing goodies!

Favorite #3: A sleeping baby

B & I have lucked out so much when it comes to baby girl. She is SUCH a good sleeper. I’m talking, 13ish hours a night. Every night. We put her to bed at 7pm (sometimes before if she is really cranky) and she doesn't wake up until we wake up… which is about 7:15 on the weekdays and around 8 on the weekends. At only 5 months old, I would say that is a serious WIN!



This picture was snapped last night. She is battling a SERIOUS cold & was so wiped out. I put her down to start her bath and get her bottle ready for bedtime and I popped my head around the corner when I couldn't hear her and found her like this. Another night of Vick’s all over her body and her humidifier and we should be back in business.

Favorite #4:  Jane!

Jane.com is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to shop online. They are described as a ‘Daily Boutique Deal’ website, which means that every day that have a new batch of cute finds from boutiques from all over at SERIOUSLY discounted prices. Remember the leggings that I was gushing about here? I found the boutique from Jane.com and now I own 3 pairs!

Favorite #5: Halloween.

Oh, I just love Halloween. It actually isn't my favorite holiday, but it definitely gets the mood going for my favorite time of year! I love being able to decorate my house & seeing all of the costumes for the little kids! I’m not going all out for A’s Halloween costume this year since she goes to bed at 7pm and can’t walk yet… but mark my words, next year… it’s on! I’m also pretty excited about mine and B’s costumes… stay tuned for that ;)


Making these is a necessity!


Want to share some of your favorite things on this Friday? Link up with Heather and join the party!

Have a great weekend!
