Friday Favorites, Baby It's Cold Outside

November 14, 2014

This week started off in the high 60's, almost 70's. This morning I woke up to a sprinkling of snow on rooftops and 24° temperature. I think it's safe to say that the weather is a bit bipolar. Regardless, it's Friday and I'm super excited for this weekend! With the coldfront, I have plans to be cozy, have the fireplace on non-stop, bake if I feel like it, and enjoy time with family. This weekend is going to be a good one and I can't wait to kick it off!

Until then, I'm sharing my Friday Favorites with a bunch of other blogging gals and Momfessionals!

[one] Cabin living. Cabins are so cozy and quaint. And while I wouldn't want to live in one year-round, I have the best time making an escape to a cabin tucked away in the woods. It's SO relaxing and even better when you have friends to share the experience with.

[two] This time of year may be my favorite, when the temperatures drop even further, the leaves are barely hanging on, and the holidays are knocking at the door. This tree though!

[three] Just because, coffee dates with husband. I love meeting him mid-day for a little time together. And it doesn't hurt that we're sipping holiday drinks out of red cups. Just sayin'.

[four] Speaking of coffee, coffee on the front porch of a cabin, in the midst of moss and fall-colored trees is like a slice of heaven. You should try it if you haven't!

[five] This wood box that my husband built for me to use as a decorative piece. I love that I can tell my husband what it is I would like and he is able to put it together for me. This box will soon be filled with Christmas goodness, but I'm loving on the white pumpkins until then!

[six] A few months ago, I took this frame and painted the glass with homemade chalk paint. It's been fun to transition it with the seasons and holidays. This has to be my favorite so far. I love having a constant reminder to praise Jesus, because when life gets busy sometimes I forget. But, this is a light in itself on my console table.

[seven] Wood stoves. The smell they put out is my FAVORITE! I don't mind that my clothes and hair smell like it, in fact I love that it does. It's the coziest thing.

[eight] The Christmas Cheer Exchange! Rachel, Kaitlin, and I launched this on Monday and we have had so many of you sign up to participate! I'm super excited to have everyone so darn excited about it! I can't wait to see what everyone's boxes hold when we link-up in December! If you want to join, you still can!! Sign up HERE. Spread a little holiday love with us and other bloggers all over the United States!

[nine] My cousin knit me a navy scarf and I've been wearing it nonstop since she gave it to me! The best part, you can have one to! She's selling them and also graciously giving a custom knit scarf away to one lucky winner! To enter the giveaway you can visit my post from Wednesday!!

[ten] I'm really excited to have spruced the look of Hill Collection up just a bit. It needed a little TLC and I'm super happy with how it came together! Take a look around and browse through the tabs (under the blog header)!

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend, a warm and cozy one at that!! You can see my other Friday Favorites posts HERE. I can't believe I've been doing this since July now! XOXO
