FRIDAY FAVORITES...HELLO FEBRUARY



HAPPY FRIDAY SWEET BABES!! I am sure many of you are wondering how the last day went? There were a few tears, lots of hugs, cards, candy, crazy last minute happenings, a quiet exit and a bottle of Asti popped, well, Actually 4 bottles of Asti popped, lol! CHEERS to LIFE & to the weekend!!


1. Ground Hog and Grandma
Today would have been my Grandma's 95th birthday and a tough one for our family because we had parties for her at every 5-year milestone birthday as she got older. You may remember this post about her HERE and that she passed away 2 years ago this April. I wanted to talk about this darling stuffed animal. Since she shared a birthday with Groundhog's Day, my mom had found this cute stuffed one and gave it to her as one of her last presents.




2. Chocolate Shoes
I got my mom these chocolate shoes for Christmas and she shared a pair with me..cute and yummy! 



You can get your own chocolate shoes HERE, they even come in a darling gold handbag! 
It comes with 2 pairs of Chocolate shoes!

  35. Those chocolate shoes are so cute! I love the black and white striped shirts. Last week, I was hanging laundry up in my closet and I realized I have 8 black and white striped shirts. I didn't even realize I had bought so many until I saw them all hanging up in the closet!

  45. I just love that bench, and can't wait to see the office reveal. I haven't commented much this week due to our move, but wanted to let you know I was thinking of you with your announcement about your job. It must be with bittersweet emotions that you leave this position you've had for so long. It reminds me of when I left my teaching job many years ago when I had Grace. I was so sad to leave, and had just poured myself into that work for 10 years. It hurt a little when I went back to visit after Grace was born, and saw that everyone had moved on and it felt like I had never worked there at all! I know you will do something amazing in this new chapter of your life! Have a wonderful weekend!
