Trendy, Functional, & New!…

Happy Friday! I’m pretty excited because I’m taking ‘a day’ today…all to myself! I’m about to head on a run, make myself some breakfast, and then meet my bestie for a nail sesh! After nails, we’ll be at our favorite place – the mall!

As I was closing out my work week yesterday, I was thinking about some of my recent favorite moments. Work moments, friend moments, and family moments and it led me to my three favorite things this week that I’d love to share with you all.

Something Trendy…

When Chuck and I were visiting family in the midwest, my mom and I took an hour to hit up the local mall. We ran into Macy’s for literally 30 minutes and I found this adorable dress. I ran into the dressing room, tried it on, and it fit like a glove. Done! I had to have it! I brought it up to the counter and it was super on sale! Like $20.00 on sale! Amazing huh? I absolutely LOVE bargains. A dress that has such sweet detail and great fabric for only $20 is a win-win in my book. Thank you, Macy’s!

Tonight we are going to an anniversary party in Seattle and all week I’ve been trying to decide what to wear.  I think this dress is the winner!

Something Functional…

Last Christmas, one of my favorite colleagues came to our Husum Holiday Party! He brought his sweet family and their daughter gave me this porcelain travel mug. I instantly fell in love! Not just because it’s adorable but because this beautiful 5 year old picked it out just for me. I felt and still do feel very special! But I have to say, I absolutely love this mug. I use it all the time and it’s become my favorite one and here’s why.  Since it’s entirely porcelain, it is super easy to clean. When I get home from work, I can rinse it out, clean the lid, and in 2 minutes, it’s done and drying on the counter. I love that it’s so easy. I have other mugs that are porcelain but the lids are rubber and it is more of a pain to clean. I usually have to put it through the dishwasher to get it really clean and who wants to do that? Starbucks has some great travel, porcelain mugs. Check them out and maybe you’ll get one in your stocking for Christmas!

Something New…

Last weekend, we got to see some friends of ours two days in a row and I have to say, I loved it! My girlfriend gave me this sweet quote board and it has truly made my week.  This gal is one of the sweetest people you’ll meet. I think of her as one of those friends you could call up any time, any day and if you needed anything, she’d be there. Oh and she has kids, a life, and lots going on but she always will make time for you. She’s never too busy.  She is one of the most gracious and selfless people I know. I feel so blessed to have her as a friend so to receive a gift like this from her was not just a kind gift, but a privilege to me. Thank you, my sweet friend. I love you and cherish our friendship.

If you readers have a friend like this, hold on to them. They are a rarity!
