friday finds & favorites #12

Happy Friday! It's been a busy week for me. How about you? I am really looking forward to some time off in a few weeks for Christmas and New Year's. You may have noticed it's got me blogging a bit less, so pardon this month being a bit sparse.


A few highlights from my week:
I got a new phone :) and have been enjoying the ease of sending text messages (my old phone's keyboard was a mess and the screen was shattered)! I'm also pumped to use Instagram on it, rather than my iPad!

Getting our Christmas tree over the weekend was  fun. The poor thing only has lights on it and is awaiting proper decor, which we'll get to this weekend.

Time with our community group.

Other stuff I love:


Confession: I'm a total sucker for children's books. I have a collection with my own little Christmas section, so I was excited to see these Christmas Books highlighted on Beautifully Rooted.

I nee to make something like this DIY holiday dessert stand from Jen.

This news story is almost too good to be true. If you've ever lived in an area that has deer crossing signs, I'm sure you'll appreciate it too!

Need some gift inspiration for a social media loving friend/family member? Or maybe you'd rather make a gift, don't miss Virginia's suggestions.

Have a great weekend!
I hope you'll grab a button and link up your post with me and Erika!

  1. If you love children's books you should check out Mo Willems and Oliver Jeffers. I love their books. They are not Christmas books, but ones that everyone should read and enjoy!

  3. I love Children's books too! My favorite of all time is The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, but I also like Harry Potter too. I use to read the series. -Jessica L
