Five Things.

Happy Friday babes! This week seemed to go by super quickly and being busy is an understatement. Not to mention I have an annoying cough and I haven’t been sleeping well. BUT, let’s not focus on the negatives, shall we?! Here are some of my faves from the week:

Baking sesh: Lady and I spent some time baking together last week (if you follow me on Insta you saw the full thing go down haha) and she was having the best time. It was our first time using this little cupcake maker thing (that’s the technical term, I’m sure of it) so it was an experience!

Cornelius returned: Our family elf, Cornelius, returned from the North Pole and he has been causing so much trouble. The kids were actually really upset about these faces he drew. Oh and that he taped Jesse (Toy Story) to the wall. Today he’s making snow angels in flour! I love seeing how excited they get every morning to find him and see what he’s done. Can they just stay this little forever? 🙁

Peace and calm:  I think it’s like scientifically proven that water calms the nerves. And if it’s not, then I’m going to make that statement. Water is good for the soul. Living near (not on.. yet… maybe one day…haha) has been wonderful and I love being able to go and sit or walk by it when I need a mental break.

Shop my closet: I’ve finally uploaded some things to my closet! Go check it out; most of it still has tags on it!
