friday favorites

Happy Friday! This week just flew by for us. I feel like I woke up on Monday morning and blinked and Friday was here. Maybe part of it is that I've had Christmas parties what feels like every other night and the nights I haven't, we've been watching Christmas movies and enjoying Peppermint Bon Bon malts. Dustin and I have a Christmas Party tonight and the theme is Twas' the Night Before Christmas. I told Dustin he needs to dress up as the Dad in the classic edition of the book...now just to find old school pajamas and a stocking cap for him ;)


Other than that we have a low key weekend ahead. We moved the girls' rooms around over Thanksgiving weekend and they have been loving the switch. Adaline has her own room (she was previously sharing with Olivia) and now Poppy and Olivia share a bedroom. It's so sweet to hear Poppy say, "Olivia?" and hear Olivia's comforting response, "I'm right here Poppy, right across the room." We also moved Poppy to a twin bed and she has been loving that. I didn't originally plan to transition her until Spring but we got her bed on sale over Black Friday weekend so it seemed like the perfect time. 

Here are a few Friday Favorites to kick off your weekend!

one | I picked these comforters for the girls' twin beds. They both have this bed and I've had my eye on them for months. I don't think you can ever go wrong with polka dots and they match their sheet sets (here). I scooped them up when they went on sale a few weeks ago and shipping was free. The TWIN size is sold out but the Full-Queen size is on sale! They are so cozy, way nicer than even I expected. I added these matching shams (on sale!) and this star pillow to each of their beds.

two | I have had so many gift exchanges and Christmas parties lately with my girlfriends, Moms groups and bible study. I love giving a gift to the hostess because I know how much time & energy goes in to hosting, even with a small group. My fav gift is making a bottle of household cleaner using Young Living's Thieves Cleaner, a 16 oz amber glass spray bottle, a pretty label and a hand stamped tag. It's not only beautiful but a practical gift that is guarateed to be used every day, and for less than $10!


three | Speaking of pretty labels, our favorite shop ever for them is Flair & Festive. Sara offers the loveliest handmade labels for essential oil gifting, creating and storing. At any given time I am dreaming up fun labels and Sara so perfectly brings them to life. Within each listing you can cutomize your font, wording and select the exact size bottle or roller you'll be using and everything comes ready to apply. Application of the labels is so simple and shipping is super quick. I'm hosting a Make & Take in the new year for a bunch of my girlfriends and I can't wait to share the labels I designed for that; they add just the right custom touch and elevate your oil goodies to the next level. If you'd like to grab some pretty labels for your gifting this year, you can use either code through the end of this month: BLESSEDNEST for Free Shipping on Orders over $25 or NEST10 for 10% off your purchase (no minimum). 

four | Olivia and Penelope love sticker books and I am always amazed how long they keep them occupied for. Olivia and I found this one last weekend at Home Goods for $5 and I picked up one for Penelope for Christmas and one for a 3rd birthday gift for a friend. It has lots of cute activities, pages to color and draw on and over 1000 stickers and I know Poppy will love that its a "purse." I also grabbed a few of these Paint with Water Activity books for Christmas gifts. My girls love painting and I love that the paints are on each page ready to go!

five | If you missed my holiday gift guide earlier this week, that can be found here. I included 11 of my favorite shops and lots of discount codes! I also wrote a post sharing 5 ways to be a more present parent here. If you have a moment to read that one, I think it will really give you a great perspective!

Hope you have the best weekend!!
