Friday Highlights + A Minted Giveaway!

Hello Friday!

Oh my goodness y’all! It felt like today would never get here. We had a crazy week and are doing the Friday dance all over the house this morning. I’d also like to say that I have the coolest kids ever. I have been super stressed and busy this week and they just roll with it. It makes me feel extremely grateful and like a terrible mother all at once. Please tell me I’m not the only one.

Let’s take a look at this weeks Friday highlights!

Go Comfy

I am LOVING the Cuddl Duds line that is available at Kohls.

They have the best tunics, like this one with thumb holes, and their leggings are divine. Yesterday I received some more pieces in the mail that I had ordered. You can look for those photos on Instagram! Or check out Kohls to snag some for yourself.

Minted Giveaway
Some of the links below are affiliate links.

A couple of weeks ago I shared about my favorite place to buy Christmas cards, Minted.

How to pick the perfect holiday card. Simple tips and tricks to make the process easier.

My post is full of tips to make your holiday card creating easier. I also showed a few card choices that I love. The funny thing is when I went to order MY cards, I didn’t pick any of those! I ended up choosing a totally different design. Just another reason to love the find it fast feature that Minted offers. What did I end up choosing? You know I’m not going to tell you that before its even November :P. Stay tuned…

But there’s more, I have exciting news!

Enter to win your chance to win one of two $125 gift cards from Minted.

Rewind Friday

Rewind Friday

Over the past few months the last Friday has been Rewind Friday. With the upcoming holidays and all the busyness that they are sure to bring, this month will be the grand finale. I have had so much fun sharing my posts from the past with y’all. Today I am gong to go back, WAY back. All the way back to the very first blog post I wrote when I relaunched this site in March of 2014.

I am a terrible blogger

The irony of it all is that I have been faithfully blogging ever since I hit the publish button on that post. Maybe I’m not such a terrible blogger after all!

Please join us in linking up one last time.
Maybe you could drop a link to your very first blog post!

Have a great weekend friends!
We’ll see you back here on Monday!
