Happy Friday! If you’ve followed along on Instagram stories the past few days, you’re probably aware that Neil and I spent most of the week in Banff, Canada. I’m including it as one of my favorite things this week, so I’ll go into more detail there, but it was GORGEOUS. Also, I put our Christmas tree up early in November to prevent feeling like the holidays are going by so quickly, but I still feel like they’re speeding by! Once we got home from our trip I realized Christmas was less than two weeks away. HOW CAN IT BE?? Maybe… View Post

Hello all! I got to Thursday of this week (when I usually write this post) and almost thought that I would have to skip it. I couldn’t think of one literal thing to put on this list, but what always helps is looking at my phone photos from the past week and just doing a survey of things by walking around the house. I found my five in way less time than I thought, so VOILA here is your Friday list! Neil and I are leaving to head to Banff National Park on Sunday for a couple days and I’m… View Post

Hello! Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a lovely week; mine has been pretty good trying to get back into the swing of things after the holidays. I’ve also put myself into an eggnog coma (see #1 on today’s post), but I’m not complaining about that. This weekend is pretty low key — gym and dropping off some gifts for a family we are sponsoring are the only things on our plate. That leaves plenty of time for snuggles with Donut and naps on the couch. Perfect. To kick that off, here are some of my favorite things from… View Post

Happy Friday! I feel like I put up our Christmas tree last week so that I could stretch out the holiday season even longer, but it still feels like it’s speeding right along. SLOW DOWN TIME. As you may have seen from Monday’s post, we had our gender reveal and now that we know it’s a boy we have to start thinking about names and all that fun stuff. Boy names are hard guys! We don’t have much planned this weekend which is my favorite, and I may use that time to get ahead of some posts and work so… View Post

Happy Friday friends! I’m headed back from Michigan today after a short trip to visit my friend Ashley and support a local gym where she teaches (see #5). I had to leave Donut behind, but got to adopt her pup Gilly, so all is right with the world. This weekend is a slow one, but Neil and I are going to stop by The Doughnut Project pop up in Logan Square at Longman & Eagle either Sat or Sun, so if you’re in the area, you should DEFINITELY make a trip there. There’s also a chance that we will find… View Post
