Friday Favorites + a Giveaway!

Happy Fri-YAY! It’s Friday and I have a half day so there’s a huge favorite there!!  We actually have my in-laws in town so we’ve planned a fun weekend ahead 🙂

As usual, I’m linking up for a fun Friday Favorites with Erika and I’ve got a really fun giveaway starting today.. so keep reading and be sure to enter!



Yesterday, our department went out for a celebration (for hitting our new business goal in 2016) and it was so nice to be out and relax!

We had lunch at Benihana at Mall of America (our office is right by there!) then played a round of mini golf! We’re pretty fortunate to all like each other so much (no cattiness like some offices have!).


The Mr surprised me with grabbing a drink and apps after class on Tuesday night! I didn’t think we’d celebrate Valentine’s that night but it all worked out!


My friends!

It’s funny because when I started this blog some friends thought it was weird but so many others were very supportive and tell me repeatedly how much they love to read along (which is crazy, right?!)!

I started this blog as a creative outlet to document what we do and love that it’s something we’ll be able to look back at in years to come! I get it, it’s weird  to people who don’t read a lot of blogs but I’ve enjoyed meeting so many other bloggers and other people while doing this.. so I think I’ll stick with it a little longer 😊 Thanks for reading along and supporting me in my crazy ideas!


As I mentioned above, my in laws are in town and we’re going to the huge golf show tonight!

It’s too bad Logan barely likes golf! 😂 #obsessedisanunderstatement


Nows the fun part.. remember yesterday when I said I loved watching Fixer Upper (and clearly need to follow everything they do!), well I ordered one of their cute shirts from the Magnolia Shop and thought a lucky reader needed one too 🤗 I mean, I can’t wait to get mine so clearly someone else should be just as excited!

Hop on over to Instagram (username: kristilynn531) for entry instructions (it’s easy!) and a chance to win!  The giveaway starts today and the winner will be announced on Tuesday!

In case you don’t have instagram, you can enter below as well!  For additional entries, check here!

    I feel the same way about friends and my blog, in fact, I don’t tell them if I don’t have to 😉 I am in New England and I feel like blogging is more common down South and on the West Coast!

    Hanging out with coworkers is so much fun! Especially when you all get along. Also, that top you wore on Valentine’s Day is too cute and is such a great color on you. Have a great weekend!
