oh hey FRIDAY! {Favorites}


{ONE} Favorite part of this week: the naps I took. I was able to get business taken care of this week, blog my heart out and take a nap 3 days in a row while Connor was napping. Some weeks just call for naps and a slower pace and this week was no exception. Simply put, I rocked this week's face off.

{TWO} Favorite quote this week: "Sometimes life isn't fair or pretty or nice. But that's okay because a time will come when you have all you need to make it fair, pretty and nice." LOVE THIS. Things can get bad and stay bad from time to time. Things can always be awesome and it's in those awesome moments that you realized that the bad times weren't as bad as you thought.

{THREE} Favorite purchase: new Fall candles from Bath and Body. The one I can't wait to burn and enjoy this autumn is Bourbon Butterscotch. 

{FOUR} Favorite post: from Courtney over at Shiraz In My Sippy Cup. Nothing makes me happier than honesty and a blogger who isn't afraid to share her thoughts. Courtney's post on Monday was spot on! 

{FIVE} Favorite Ecards: because this was made with me in mind. #serious

 
 Happy Friday!

  8. Ecards are my favorite, along with fall scented candles and slowed paced weeks. Sounds like this week was a good one! I hope you have a fantastic weekend.

  11. There are few things better than fall candles!!! I'm from Portland but living in Cape Town, South Africa where it's about to be spring. I'm a little sad we'll be missing Portland fall this year, even though I do get sunny beaches instead :)

  14. I haven't bought a candle in a few years, because I'm a scent say junkie, but my Husband might appreciate that candle. I totally LOL'd at that ecard! I'm glad I talked with you last night and found your blog. Love your design! Hubby Jack has done a bunch of mine too. :)
