Friday Favorites – February 2015

Happy Friday everyone! I’m ready for a busy weekend of swimming time trials and a girls night to watch the Oscars. Here are some of my favorite things from the past week!

We celebrated our daughter’s birthday with family last weekend. One of my sister-in-law’s hobbies is making cakes. I think she should open a cake shop but the hobby she loves more than cakes is writing. She has published one young adult novel (you can read my review here) and has the sequel coming out this spring. 

My daughter gave the Hubs and me this cute little mason jar filled with 20 reasons we are the best parents ever for Valentine’s Day. There is nothing better than a homemade gift and this was such a clever idea!

Then I got these beautiful roses from the Hubs that brightened up my day! We usually don’t give each other gifts on Valentine’s day so this was a nice surprise! Our cat loves to knock over vases to drink the water so I have to use this “cat proof” vase that has a lid with slots cut out of it. Only problem is you have to cut the stems pretty low to use it.

Monday started out with a four hour conference call on the new applicant tracking system we are implementing at work. I don’t know about you, but my attention span tends to dwindle around hour two. My co-worker Lori came over to work with me so we could help each other stay focused. I only had to bribe here with chocolate covered gummy bears! These are an addicting treat and I made sure I had plenty on hand. 

An Erin Condren life planner had been on my wish list for awhile and I was lucky to get one for a Christmas gift from my Mom. I use this for blog planning and organizing my life. I still use a digital calendar for work but I feel better organized when I can write things down. This calendar has both monthly and weekly spreads, sections for goals, to-do lists, meal planning, exercise tracking and notes. You can check it out using my referral linkhere and when you register, you will get $10 off your first purchase! 

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend!
