We made it through January! It just feels like it lasts double any other month. Why is that? Today I’m linking up with Sheaffer, Shay, and Andrea for Friday Favorites here.
Are you ready to see a blurry photo of one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received? My college and beyond roommate H of almost 8 years – yes, we lived together for almost 8 years – gifted me this necklace with my Dad’s birth date engraved on it. I don’t even know how she thought of it, because it didn’t even cross my mind to have this done. I was so incredibly touched and I love wearing it.
Trader Joe’s was offering samples of this soup and now I’m a big fan. Andrea said her Trader Joe’s threw a half of a Boursin cheese round in their pot of soup so now I want to try that the next time I make it!
I picked up these daffodils for 1.49 at TJ’s, also. I am really into red blends when the weather is cold. I can’t do sweet wines like my sister – sorry M. This bottle is 2.99 and it is good. That is less than a latte, people!
I am lucky enough to have a cousin who is exactly my age. We have never lived in the same town but we’ve always been close and she is off on Wednesdays so I got to talk to her on my snow day. If I could bottle up her laugh I would. She has a big job, but reads the blog when she can. Hi K!
So, on my Wednesday snow day I stopped into Versona and loved this sweater and these earrings. I said I didn’t want to buy any more winter things so I avoided the sale rack because I would have just bought something because it was cheap. I’m trying to be more intentional when I shop for clothing. This sweater sparked joy! These earrings also sparked joy and I wear a lot of red and pink in February. Versona is seriously becoming a favorite store for me when I don’t shop consignment.
And, snow days and blogs are bad for the pocketbook. I ordered this beauty for $18. I’m calling this a spring sweatshirt. It was recommended by a blogger or maybe more than one. But, snow days are definitely another favorite! We had two back to back on Wednesday and Thursday!
And, just to keep you updated: I still love my Rothy’s flats and my Hofi leggings with pockets from Amazon. I did really well in January with my shopping. I bought one pair of leggings, one pair of shoes, three pairs of earrings, one sweatshirt, and one sweater. I was very thoughtful and intentional and I feel good about these purchases.
What were your favorites this week?
Thanks for reading! Happy weekend!
