The Pick: Week 3 + Friday Favorites

January 23, 2015

Hands down this has been the best week ever, and the weekend is only going to prove to be even more amazing (do I have to add a $1 to The Bachelor's 'Amazing Jar'??). Today kicks off my birthday weekend, as I near the quarter of a century mark on Sunday! There are plans made for pampering, family time, concert-going, and dining out. To say I'm excited would be an understatement. 

I hope your week has been fabulous as well! Like all Fridays I'm sharing my favorites from the week, and this week wasn't short of any...

[one] I'm casually obsessed with this poncho. It's super comfy, perfect for cooler days, and cozy. I wore this ensemble to church on Sunday, and then for the remainder of the day. This is big seeing as how I typically switch right out of my out-in-public-clothes for comfy sweats when I get home. 

[two] This Marshmallow Fireside Bath & Body Works candle has been making my home smell lovely for days on end. I can't get enough of it! Unfortunately, I'm not sure that they're making it anymore. 

[three] I'm not a huge fan of waking up while it's still dark outside. But, it's not as bad when the sky is putting a colorful show. This was my view from earlier in the week.

[four] I'm obsessed with everything in this photo, from the scarf (similar) and vest to the striped shirt, watch (similar) and coffee mug. This is how any winter morning should look. Don't you agree??

[five] Although it's winter my house has been quite cheerful and full of color inside. Take a peak at Tuesday's post to see how I accomplished brightening the winter blues.

[six] Valentine's Day will be here before you know it! I shared a DIY tutorial for making garland out of large pom poms, and husband and I are also offering miniature pom pom garland on our Etsy Shop!

[seven] Wednesday was the best day of the week, hands down. It's incredible experiencing God's blessings and some sweet family time. I went to sleep feeling closer to the Lord than ever and with a full heart. 

[eight] And what's not to love about opening your mailbox to magazines?? I love cuddling up with a show and my magazines for some leisure time!

[nine] Blogging is a joy for me and my labor of love. The community formed is like no other, and I have loved interacting with so many of you! I shared some tips I've picked up on during my two years of blogging and posted them yesterday.

[ten] Speaking of blogging, I am over the moon with my new blog design. The new features are my favorite, and I talked about them and what they offer in Monday's post if you'd like to see.
