Hey friends, it’s been a while so I thought I’d share a little Friday Favorites post to catch you all up on what’s been going on around here lately.

We have a 5 year old in the house! I can’t believe Shane is five already. It just goes too fast. We had a lot of fun celebrating this sweet boy this month. We had a little family party for him as well and he had a blast. It was definitely a recent favorite of ours.

Speaking of birthdays, this little girly and I snuck out on my birthday and had a little shopping date. I had some money from Christmas that I got to spend on some fun home decor. I also got to cash in my free Starbucks drink. We had a great time.

Another favorite this week is how much I am loving the home decor we bought on our little date. I am in love with these three flower canvas prints. I also bought the bunch of flowers on the mantel as well and am loving that too! It adds such a nice touch to our home and makes it all feel a lot more pulled together. Now next on the list is to refinish the brick and mantel. I can’t wait, it’s going to look so much better!

I almost forgot to add this one but a definite favorite these past two weeks is my new Nespresso machine!! Tommy surprised me with it for my birthday and it’s been so much fun to have some fancy coffee. I can’t wait to make some brown sugar shaken espressos when it starts getting warmer! It’s going to be so much fun! (and delicious!)

The boys have been absolutely loving having “snack trays” for lunch the past few weeks. Ever since Christmas when we had a lot of leftover crackers and cheese, we’ve been putting these snack trays together for the boys about once a week for lunch and we all have been loving it. Me because it’s so easy and them because they find it really fun and delicious! I’ve seen other people do this a lot but have never tried it and I’m so glad we finally did.

Another favorite is that I have been loving how much I’ve been reading this month. I decided to take the month off of Instagram and I am so very glad I did. I have gotten into a new habit that has been so much better than scrolling Instagram. When I’m nursing now I have started reading books on our library’s digital apps and also keeping a copy of the hard books when possible too and it has really helped me get into a lot more books than I usually read. I am probably going to hit five books this month, which is just crazy! I think I’m going to do a book review post in the beginning of February of all the books I read this month so stay tuned for that if that’s interesting to you.
