It's a GLORIOUS Friday!

Happy GLORIOUS Friday!!! Today marks the 12th day in a row I have worked so you KNOW I am ready for this weekend ahead. You'd think someone with this crazy of a schedule would keep their calendar free and open after working such a long stretch. Nope, not me. I am seriously insane and I don't know why we did it, but Jared and I will be hosting our first-ever Friendsgiving tomorrow for roughly 10-12 people. Oh, and if I've never mentioned it before, we live in a fairly small tri-level. Tomorrow's party may violate some type of room capacity law. So if you need me Saturday, I'll be elbows deep in mashed potatoes and likely wearing an apron, because that's what hosts do, right? ;)
{1} Friendsgiving, duh! As crazy as it might end up being, I'm excited to have lots of friends over for an evening of good food.

{2} Free printables on Pinterest are truly the best thing that ever happened to holidays. Decorating is SO EASY now! I'm loving all the Thanksgiving ones and i'd be lying if I said I hadn't peeked ahead at Christmas ones, too.


{3} Skyping with adorable little babies. Thank goodness for modern technology, seriously! I don't know how I'd be able to survive without seeing my niece's face and hear her adorable babbles regularly. The day she can start saying my name, I will flat-out die.

{4} The ridiculous fun Jared and I can have at a grocery store. I found this guy during our power outage last Sunday when we ventured out to Kroger. Can someone please let Santa that I would 100% love for this to be under my tree this year??
It's after 10pm and I had worked all day. No judging.
{5} Friends. The friends that know how to comfort you when you're down. The friends that send you THE funniest snapchats ever that no one else in the world would understand. The friends that text you when they hear your favorite song in a store, just to let you know they are rocking out along with it. Those are the friendships that make the world go 'round.

And *BONUS* I have a winner of the 50 Christmas Cards from Cardstore! Congrats to  Lisa!!!

  2. I can't WAIT to see the pictures from your Friendsgiving! And dangit! I don't know why I didn't think to email you yesterday when I was having issues figuring out Skype. I've been trying to Skype with my Bloggy BFF in England and I couldn't figure out what in the world I was doing but her friend request finally came through so I think we are on the right path! Enjoy your weekend Girly!

  4. Friendsgiving sounds amazing... I know you've been in a crazy stretch of work and life and being surrounded by some of your favorite friends being thankful sounds just about perfect!

    The printables... I need to check those out. I saw a sign on Pinterest that was like $80... I could print a sign, frame it and be done for under $5... never would have thought of that, thank you!!
