Friday Faves

Happy Friday friends!!

Hopefully your full week at work for the new year went ok--mine went alright and pretty quickly, thankfully, without too many bumps. Praise!! Hopefully the fact that it's Friday the 13th doesn't throw a wrench in the decent week.

Let's chat about some other faves from this week!

~I bought a maternity dress from Zulily the other day that I'm either going to wear for an upcoming wedding, or more likely for my baby shower in a couple of months
And, yes, I love that it has purple in it :) Hopefully it fits as well when it gets here as it does on the model in the picture (who probably isn't pregnant).

~A long weekend and a super short work week is ahead! I have off on Monday for MLK day, and then again next Friday for Inauguration. I'll take the days off, despite the fact that I won't be celebrating the Inauguration.

~We're having friends over tonight for dinner! I feel all Susie Homemaker prepping for it, and am really looking forward to it! Good food and friends always makes for a fabulous night! Just call me Shauna Niequist ;)
On the menu: hummus and tzatziki for appetizers
Mediterranean pasta bake for dinner with garlic bread on the side and salad
Dessert: our friends are bringing dessert (worst case, it will be ice cream :)

~I got this adorable mom and baby elephant necklace last weekend (thanks to Instagram sponsored ads--they got me), but I love love love the sentiment the website had about the necklace.

Plus, I may be going down a bit of a elephant themed nursery (super cute, not over the top), so this kinda fit in with all of that.

~Our weekend last weekend started off with temps in the 20s and snow (a tiny bit of snow), and then Wednesday we got into the 50s, Thursday was in the mid 60s and I was walking around outside without a jacket on, and then tomorrow we're supposed to get icy snow. Doesn't Mother Nature know that snow and ice on the weekends is a no-no??

Before I go, I'll leave you with some funnies:

How I wish Republicans and Democrats could get along
{via} if only it was this simple
How I feel almost every time I turn on the news lately
{via}
How I feel as the minutes tick closer to dismissal on a Friday, especially before a long weekend
{via}
Here's hoping the weekend is snow-free and fun!

  21. Me and Zulily haven't built a good relationship just yet but we will see what my latest order has to offer. Mainly the sizing of things is my issue. That dress is so pretty though!! Also, it takes a while for the stuff to arrive, or at least my stuff has.
