FRIDAY FAVORITES...STAY IN BED EDITION

So Kids, this may have been a short week but I am tired!!! After working a 12 hour day yesterday, all I really want to do is stay in bed or at least in my jammies and drink hot chocolate but there is sooo much to do. Off bright and early for house stuff meetings and next week, I am having a moving sale. This week, when I returned home, all kinds of snags were happening at the new house so I went into Project Manager mode and got on it, but a little stressful. Then, my blog wouldn't let people comment. I found out it wasn't just me.
Hoping to at least see Bad Moms Christmas this weekend, looks so funny! No matter what you do, make it sweet, make it fun and love on all those around you!

1. Florida with my Mama!

We had the BEST time, she was totally surprised by the #Questfor70cards, which yielded 70 + 7 to grow on and I hope we don’t wait 5 more years for a relaxing get away together. #Preciousmotherdaughtertime. Full recap Monday, including some shout outs to where those beautiful cards came from!


She got all kinds of birthday swag and the day started with Birthday Cheesecake and Bloody Mary's at breakfast. 
Our View
Isn't she a doll!!! No way she is 70!

2. New Perfume Favorite 
I have heard great things about Jo Malone products for years and it wasn’t until I got a sample of this perfume that I understood why this brand is so poplar!
This Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom is AMAZING!! I ordered the 1 oz bottle right away. Maybe Mr. Nine will get me the 3.4 oz, lol! Ladies you will LOVE this! I was always a Light Blue and Chanel no. 5 girl but this is SO GOOD!

3. Week's Attire
Old Navy Dress, Francesca's necklace, Forever 21 Duster 

TJ Maxx top, Target necklace, The Loft Pants


4. Cowl Neck & Riding Boots
I have always loved the drape of a good Cowl Neck. This one from Nordstrom is so so soft! These boots from INC at Macy's are some of my favorite riding boots.

5. Misc. Fun
Round Polka Dot Mouse Pad

These Hearth and Hand Goodies from Target 
 These candles from Chip and Jo Jo smell amazing, even the check out girl at Target was sniffing them with glee. The light gray is so pretty too and different for candles. I bought 3 for the new house, only $4.99

  1. What a week sweetie! I'm sorry you had to come back to a full on busy week after such a lovely weekend, I hope that meant you were well rested and ready to tackle it all like a #bosslady! The pictures of you and your mom are so sweet, what a beauty just like you! I seriously think she needs to appear on the blog more, she has style and panache!
    We had a huge sale at our house last week that seemed like a moving sale. So much of our old stuff just didn't go with the new decor, it felt so good to get rid of so much. I wish you the best success with your sale next week. And that means the big move is getting closer, I cannot even imagine how excited you all must be. I am so happy for you and your family!!!
    We are hoping to see Murder on the Orient Express this weekend. I'd love to see the Bad Moms movie, I loved the first one so much!
    Cheers to a wonderful weekend gorgeous!
    xo,

  10. You are seriously a golden soul of a human! The world needs more people like you in it! I did try to leave you a comment but sadly could not. I did try to telepathically send you a message though since you are in a neighboring state! Haha. :-) Your mom is beautiful and looks amazing! I saw those candles at Target and they do smell good. I also love cowl neck tops and sweaters because they are more comfortable. Sorry that your week was a little stressful but I hope that your weekend is both fun and relaxing! :-)

  11. Sending you all the coffee as you get back into routine, and good luck with the moving sale! Can't wait to hear all the details about your sweet momma's birthday including that beautiful resort you guys stayed at. Happy Friday <3

  12. Look at you and your sweet mom! I am so glad you guys enjoyed the trip! I like a cowl neck, I just cant handle anything more than that around my neck,turtle necks drive me batty. I have a few of the Jo Malone fragrances on my wish list, the one you mentioned and sea salt and wood sage. They didn't have the Hearth stuff out at my Target last Sunday when I went and I was so mad! It better be out this weekend or I am going to be raising a stink! Hope you have a great weekend!

  13. I wish I could have stayed in bed, too. I am SO happy you got all the cards and more. I thought it was the best thing ever and I am sure your mom did, too. So, so sweet! Good luck with all the house things! I am going to be having to stop by Target this weekend to check out those candles! Happy Friday!

  14. That Jo Malone perfume is literally my favorite! I discovered the brand when I worked for an apothecary as a writer out of college, and I've been obsessed since. Isn't it such a clean, bright smell?! Also, I just love all your Florida pictures! Your momma could be your sister! Happy weekend, sweet friend!

  15. I really wanted to stay in bed today too, but alas I could not, boo! Glad that you made it to more than 70, how fun! Those gingerbread houses for the mugs, cutest thing ever! Hope you have a fab weekend lady!

  16. You mom looks so young and you certainly inherited that gene! So glad y'all had a good trip! I hope you recuperate and relax! Also ps, you don't pop up in bloglovin anymore for me, so weird.

  17. Those measuring spoons and cups are swoon worthy. For the past couple of years Target has had some gold ones. I have LOVED them so much but missed out on them each time. These might be even better. Glad you had a lovely time with your mama. What a sweet way to get away. Happy Friday friend. I hope you have an amazing weekend.

  21. So happy to hear you and your mamma had a blast and she raked in over 70 cards! That must have took her my surprise.I can't even remember if I sent one but I totally meant too!

Hope everything gets straightened up so you can relax!

  33. Look at your sweet momma! Glad you girls had a sweet getaway....I need to take my mom somewhere. Sorry there was drama at the house but hope it all gets smoothed out. I loved that scent and the cedar magnolia scent...I grabbed that one in black for the guest bedroom if I ever get it pulled together.

  34. This is adorable, and no way is your mum 70! She looks amazing, as do you Hun. xx Love your weeks wear, and the cute gingerbread toppers! I'm a fan of a cowl neck, but also remember having a cowl backless dress in the 80's for my engagement party - pink and white and I loved it! Thanks for giving me that memory. xx Love you too! Have a happy weekend. x Jacqui

  35. You deserve to stay in bed or at least in your pyjamas after the week you've had. Your mom is adorable! So happy you two got to get away and celebrate her birthday in style. I think you probably have fun just getting coffee at Starbucks. My mom was a lot of fun and a world class shopper. Enjoy your weekend. xoxo

  38. I am so happy you and your precious mama had such a fun getaway. She's so darling! You look so gorgeous in red and that top...is it not the most comfy ever? I have the pinkish/gray one and wear it all the time. I should really get another one.💡 Welcome back to reality, but your reality is about to become so exciting!!!🏠 Have a wonderful weekend my sweet, sweet friend!!! XOXO

  39. That mousepad is pretty fantastic. I might need to upgrade my lame black one. Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  40. You had me at Stay In Bed! And I will. Love it. It's 11pm as I read this so I've got a lot of "staying" to do before I feel guilty! Your mum looks amazing and so do you, sweetie. And the holiday sounds truly special. Hope you're keeping yourself your weekend a snag free zone. Have a good one, hugs, x.

  45. It's always tough to get back into work after having a few days off! I completely fell in love with those measuring spoons - I love stuff like that! The cowl neck sweater looks beautiful on you - that colour is divine! I do love wearing flat knee high boots with jeans and a long sweater, it's the perfect wintery outfit. I'm not a huge fan of Jo Malone's perfumes but I do like their lotions!
    Have a fabulous week, my friend.
