Happy happy Friday, friends!
We are heading home from Prague this morning and should be back by the time the kiddos get home from school. It was a quick but amazing trip. I am now in love with the Czech Republic 🙂 .
We get asked quite a bit here at our travel agency if shorter trips to further destinations are a good idea or a bad idea and here is my professional opinion…if there is somewhere you REALLY want to go but just cannot seem to find a big chunk of time to get there, then go for a shorter amount of time. I think life is way too short to NOT visit a place that you really want to see because you can’t find a big block of time on your calendar. If we wait for the “perfect” conditions, we might never take the trip. I have clients who have been trying to get to Lisbon for two years now and finally, he just decided to go this next week for three nights. He’s going to Lisbon. This is a bucket list trip for him. It’s going to be quick, but he’s going with his son, and they’re about to have the BEST time.
So yeah, longer is always better, but shorter is better than nothing.
I am going to take tomorrow off to enjoy my family and get my life (and laundry!) together, so there will not be Saturday post this week. Have the BEST weekend! I will see you on Monday.
We are officially done with sports until spring! It was such a fun fall…maybe this mama’s very favorite fall ever with youth sports? All four kiddos did exactly what they loved, and it made things so much fun for Andrew and me. Our season ended with one last volleyball tournament for Coach Big Fella and Mades. His team improved so much this season, and honest to goodness, I think this kiddo here was our most improved. I can’t wait to see them play again in the spring!
Um, this chenille sweater is SO COZY!!! I mean, why aren’t all of my sweaters chenille?! Everything about it makes me happy 🙂 .
Speaking of happy…
Agh! How cute is my FAIR ISLE SWEATER?!
Now, I haven’t worn it out yet, but geez, I’m excited to go somewhere in it 🙂 . As a reference, I bought it in XS. Right now, it’s on sale too! As are…
One of my Faves this week was my 10 RANDOM THINGS post! If you missed it, I cover random things about everything from my sweet in-laws to what I love to have with me on cozy mornings. It’s all right HERE!
A few Faves from my week…
…MY CHELSEA BOOTS (now ON SALE!)! They have been so comfy, water resistant, warm and easy to walk all day in without hurting my feet. I bought them in black, but they come in other colors too.
Speaking of coats…
…I love my VUORI PUFFER too! I’ve yet to purchase something from Vuori that I didn’t absolutely love. This coat (also available in a beautiful buff color) is insulated, warm, packed so easily and super cute. I bought mine in an XS just FYI.
Of course, I brought the holiday cheer with me…
…via my PAJAMAS! They just make me H-A-P-P-Y!
One last thing I was certainly happy to have this week…
These would make an excellent holiday gift idea too 🙂 .
…a PUMPKIN SPICE COCKTAIL for your Friday. You guys, it’s like dessert in a cup. This is DELICIOUS!
Okay, that wraps up our Friday!
I will see you back here on MONDAY!
Sending you so much love this Friday! xx
