Happy Friday! Next week at this time, it will be Christmas Eve. I can’t believe it!!! This month is going way too fast, as it always tends to do. We always have so many things going on between birthdays, Christmas, work always gets busy, and there are so many activities going on at school. Even though I decorate early for Christmas, I feel like we haven’t had enough time to enjoy it yet! We have many more movies to watch, cookies to bake, and books to read. I am really hoping to embrace it all over the next week and soak in this time. Everything is so magical to Zoe, and I know that this we get a short window while they are little for it. So I try not to get frustrated coming up with a million things for the elf to do, or get too stressed about when I am going to find time to wrap all these gifts. You know?
Zoe came home sick last Friday. We kept her out of school Monday-Wednesday this week to recover. She tested negative for the big C and flu, and were told it was a flu-like virus. She was the sickest I have seen her for awhile on Monday. It breaks my heart to see littles not feel well. She has been a trouper and has been doing better. She went to school yesterday, and got to go to her dance party last night. The girls got to dress in pajamas and we all brought a treat with us. They danced to Alvin and the Chipmunks for us and looked ADORABLE!!! And then we all sat around a make-shirt floor table and snacked and had so much fun. I really love that a few of us moms have been together since the beginning. It is so fun watching our girls grow through dance.
Today Zoe has a class Christmas party at school. Each kid is bringing a wrapped book for a gift exchange. I absolutely love that! We decided it is going to be her last day for the year. We don’t want her getting sick next week and taking us all out for Christmas. Plus, I have a few fun activities in mind I would like to do with her…so having her here will be easier to find that time to do them.
I ran into a friend at Target yesterday, and we ordered a coffee and walked around the store for an hour just shopping together. I was helping her pick up some stocking stuffers for her kids and I had a few teacher gifts and party things to pick up. It was so fun and relaxing and I don’t know why I don’t do stuff like this more often? Also. The sugar cookie almond milk latte (or whatever that huge mouth full is called) is delicious.
Favorite Purchases: I have been wanting this collared sweatshirt for awhile and pulled the trigger. It is so soft and so nice looking in person. It looks more like a sweater than a sweatshirt, which I love. It is cozy and the neck with the zipper is so flattering.
I also grabbed this satin button up. Such a classic piece that is truly timeless. Both pieces were on sale, and I think they are still running a sale now.
Speaking of sales, Tuckernuck had an amazing one going on earlier this week! I had been looking at this dress all summer, and kept it tagged for next spring/summer. It is on major sale right now and still available in a few sizes!
Favorite Recipe: I saw this air fryer recipe for cinnamon roll bites. You can do them in the oven too. How perfect for Christmas morning???
Linking up for Friday Favorites. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
