What’s up, weekend 12/8

– Posted in: featured

Good morning, friends! How is everyone doing, and what’s on tap for the weekend? Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? I have a few things left to purchase, but I’m taking it easy this year—feeling a bit less stressed out than maybe I should?

Let’s move on to this week’s gratitude—as always, please don’t forget to link up with Lindsay and Beth and let us know what’s on your grateful list!


Warm sweaters, hot coffee

This red wine which came from a blog friend <3

Winning $15 and two free lottery tickets from NJ Lottery

Target and their Christmas decorations

Going out to look at houses this weekend—the market has been slow, but it’s nice to see a few homes pop up in the area where we’re looking

I’m sure you’ve seen the video of the man rescuing the bunny from the California wildfires—I am so grateful for the many angels among us <3 <3 <3

I won this painting from rasjacobson—be sure to follow her everywhere; her artwork is incredible!
Adopting a Positive Mental Attitude. It’s not always easy, but I want to round out this year on a high and I’m determined to do just that

Hello my sweet! That wine is hilarious, I love the bottle! I would totally keep that bottle and use it as a decoration or something! And I really love the painting you won, her artwork is definitely inspiring, I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen so far. I hope you have a fabulous weekend my dear. XOXO

Congrats on winning the painting – so beautiful, and I love the quote on it! Ooh that wine is sure fun. I’m hoping to get some holiday activities in this weekend, but also just relax as much as possible.

Congrats on winning the painting and the $15. I’m falling more and more in love with Target lol. I think I might just start shopping there even more. I hope you have a great weekend.

Fun stuff. I’m trying to put work aside and dive into the holiday spirit. Your gift went in the mail today!

You had such a winning week! Lotto and that painting. Way to go! The Christmas decor at Target is beautiful for sure. I just want to hand them all my money. haha

I have to say I just love Renee’s stuff, too. She is so talented, and the story behind her art is incredible.

That painting is beautiful!
Is it weird that I never think ugly sweaters are ugly?? lol I always think they’re cute.

That wine bottle is brilliant!
Such a beautiful painting you won – that quote is awesome.
Well done on the Positive Mental Attitude. Makes such a difference 🙂
Hope the week ahead is a great one for you.

YES to warm sweaters and coffee. I am also all about the positive attitude. It’s not always easy, but it helps so much.

I haven’t seen the bunny video yet but I’m told I have to see it!!
I will.
Also, Target. YES.

HEY sweet momma, how are you my love? Crazy week and with the holidays coming, it’s even more insane! But I digress, all good times ahead. 🙂

I just love your positive attitude in this post and wanting to make the end of the year a good one. That inspires me, my dear. <3
The man saving the bunny was amazing, wasn’t it? Poor thing. Is it bad that with every disaster I think of our four legged friends a bit more than humans?

I’ve got a couple things left to buy for Christmas and I’m running out of time! I’m trying to find mom some nice sweaters but nothing is appealing to me and she’s tiny – everything looks so huge, even the xs’s im seeing. Hopefully today I’ll be successful. I hate malls but my office tower is attached to one so around the holidays, it’s super convenient.

Hope you’re having a great week love. Love you to bit. xoxoxo

Ps. LOVE that painting!
