Add It To My List: A Link Up

When I saw Lauren and Bre mention this link up last week, I knew I had to join! I love buying/watching/reading/doing things based on my friend's real recommendations so I can't wait to see what everyone is sharing today!

My list is kind of all over the place, but that's what makes it fun, right?


I mentioned last week I just finished Anna Kendrick's book - go get it!

5 on Friday!

The last few weeks have been tough, as I mentioned earlier this week, but hopefully I will be back on the blogging train this week. My 5 on Friday this week is going to be short and sweet but I wanted to put something out there and get the blogging juices flowing! 

one // Date night tonight! 

We are going out for Queen's Feast tonight at Napa on Providence and I'm pumped. We haven't had a really nice date night in awhile and we're going to a new restaurant. I'm also ready to cheat SO hard on my meal plan.

Sometimes, life isn't all roses and pretty coffee cups on Instagram. Sometimes, it's really hard. Sometimes, just waking up, getting dressed and getting to work is an achievement in itself. And that's where I am now.

I'm not here to whine and complain, though. I'm actually here for the exact opposite! I want to share some things that are keeping me functioning right now. Also, just as a note, thankfully no one is dying (or has died) and things with Christian and I are a-okay

My planner has a spot in the top corner of every week to write something I'm thankful for and that's something I'm taking so seriously right now. It's so nice to sit down on Sunday night to plan my week, our meals and think about what I'm thankful for this week. Which is where I came up with the idea for this post.

These are the things I'm most thankful for right now.

These Are A Few of My Favorite Things

Oops, hello again. It's been so hard getting back into the groove since the holidays! Maybe because work has been super busy and so has life? All good and fun but not as much blog time as I'd like. Today, I just wanted to share a few of my current favorites that I'm loving.

Last year, I sort of set some resolutions and I actually didn't do too bad at them. But, I don't really liek resolutions. This year, I'm setting a phrase. Not really a word, but sort basically the same idea.

First, I want to look back at 2016's "resolutions":

See ya, 2016.

I'm a little behind on the recap/new year posts but I had some time off for New Years and I really wanted to soak up every last moment of it before we grind on into the new year. I also failed my first test of the new year by writing 1/3/16 as the date yesterday. I'll figure it out by June, I'm sure.

Over the last year, I've made a few great new friends, strengthened relationships with some of my best friends, travelled a few new places and a couple of my favorite cities, learned SO much at work and had some amazing nights with my wonderful husband. I can't wait to see where 2017 takes us!
