Friday Faves

I survived the first (I think) full week of work since before Winter Break!!! Do you hear the same cheers and applause that I do right now? No? Maybe that's because after this long, and super busy, kinda stressful week, I'm hallucinating haha. It also seems fitting given the week that I've had that today is Friday the 13th....but I digress.

Either way, it was still a good week overall and I definitely have some favorites to share!
{1} Birthday Celebrations
Even though I celebrated early, the birthday celebrations from last weekend were so so so much fun! It's hard when you're birthday is during the work week, so I'm glad I was able to spend time with friends last weekend, and am meeting up with some on Friday for some post-bday celebrating too! MG made me breakfast in the morning and then took me to dinner at one of my favorite places by us on the day of my birthday and my coworker friend surprised me with a birthday balloon on my desk in the morning. And then all of the super sweet messages, texts etc from you all, too! All the little things that add up to a good day--thanks for taking the time to make it special!

{2} Favorite Birthday Gifts
Along with my unique Alex and Ani bracelet from my bestie that I showed you all on Monday, MG got me the cross body purse that I've been wanting for forever and a day! I think it's the perfect neutral and I'll definitely be using it a TON this Spring and Summer!

I got some other things but these two were definitely my favorites this year!
{3} Wine and Cheese Party

My friend from work is throwing a wine and cheese tasting party at her house with a few of our other friends from work. Everyone is bringing a favorite wine and a cheese that pairs with it. It was something that I'd thought about doing at our house at some point so I'm glad to get the first hand experience and some ideas for our own party! Plus, work friends+wine+cheese=perfection!

{4} Massage

I had to wait over a month to get in with my favorite massage therapist this Sunday afternoon but I know that it's gonna be worth it. Nothing says birthday pampering, especially after a super stressful week, than a massage with the best therapist! Definitely a Sunday activity that I'll be looking forward to!

{5} The weather
It's finally been nice enough outside that I don't have to wear my heavy coat, or a scarf and gloves every time I go outside. It's consistently been in the 50s and mid 60's this week, and even on the rainy days, it felt SO much better than it has. It feels like Spring is finally starting to peek its head out...which is why I started taking my allergy meds this week to get them in my system. Yay for happy, sunshiney, windows cracked, open sunroof kind of weather!

I hope you have a fun-filled weekend ahead!

Happy Friday and happy weekend, lovies!

  1. Yay for birthday celebrations and pampering!! Love that crossbody bag, so cute! Enjoy the wine and cheese party! I'll be having my own little wine and cheese party at home tonight. I don't feel like cooking (already, you know thats a bad sign) and cheese and wine sounds perfect. Happy Friday girl!
