{favorites friday}

It's Friday! So I hope you're excited for my favorites from this past week: 

1. My Christmas Playlist. I've been listening to this one all week with my hazelnut coffee on the way to the office. It's nice to have the time to decompress before hitting it hard at work. I think it brings me peace too. I have a small amount of road rage, and when I got cutoff the other day {a look-and-turner - the worst people!!} I didn't even honk. Guess I'm in the Christmas spirit....I'm going to give you a rundown, maybe you are needing some ideas to get your Christmas playlist or maybe you think I'm crazy for playing Christmas music so early....Here goes: 

1. When My Heart Finds Christmas - Harry Connick, Jr. 
2. Carol of the Bells - From the Home Alone Soundtrack
3. The Prayer - Celine Dion {I don't think this is really a Christmas song, but it's beautiful and always ends up on my Christmas playlists}
4. Sending You A Little Christmas - Jim Brickman
5. This Gift - 98 Degrees {Don't Judge - Part I}
6. All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey {This goes without saying.....right?}
7. The Gift - Jim Brickman {Don't Judge Part II- I don't think this is a Christmas song either, but it always ends up on the Christmas playlists}
  8. The Christmas Song - Nat King Cole
9. What Christmas Means To Me - Stevie Wonder
10. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Judy Garland
11. Let It Snow - Lena Horne
12. White Christmas - Bing Crosby
13. Christmas Waltz - Kristin Chenoweth
14. Cool Yule - Louis Armstrong
15. Baby, It's Cold Outside - Dean Martin {was always my grandmothers favorite, so I love him too}
16. Sleigh Ride - Ella Fitzgerald
17. It's Beginning to Look A lot Like Christmas - Bing Crosby
18. Oh, Come All Ye Faithful - Faith Hill
19. It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year - Andy Williams
20. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Frank Sinatra
21. I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm - Dean Martin
22.  Mary, Did You Know? - Kenny Rogers
23. Jesus, Born on This Day - Mariah Carey - This one may be my favorite :)

2. My go to hair products: I hate having stuff in my hair, I don't like the way it feels heavy with product in it. I do, however LOVE these products and have used them forever!! The first one I use right when I get out of the shower. It's smells yummy and doesn't weigh anything! 

The 2nd one I use when I don't feel like washing my hair {that's a lot! Anyone with long hair feel my pain? It's such hard work!} and I even let mine air dry 98% o the time. My husband makes fun of me when I tell him I have to wash my hair in the morning, he says "Oh gosh, you might as well not sleep tonight and get started right now". Anyway I love this dry shampoo by Enjoy! I just spray it on, put on my makeup, comb through it and I'm good as gold! We'll maybe silver ;)

And the go to hairspray even though I don't typically wear it?
Kenra 25 - for sure. 

3. This sippy from Target - when I spotted this sippy I couldn't snag it up fast enough. A reindeer? With little plastic red antlers, that my son will probably chew off?! Yes, please, I wanted one for myself too, but figured I would get weird looks.....

When I was rolling the cart through Target I couldn't stop myself from singing to Landon, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer". Yes, yes I did. Look at that face.  I can't take it. He's thinking is it a reindeer or a sippy cup...?

4. BabyGap Friends and Family Sale! - Love their sales! Landon got a pair of new Footie jammies with lions on them! Perfect, because he just learned to say "Lion" from his book 'My First 100 Words"

These are some of the other purchases that Landon will be sporting.  The marled sweatshirt was not on sale, but might as well have been :) It's so cute. 

1 2 3 4 5 6

Maybe you'll get to snatch up some some cuties for your little one or yourself during the Gap sale....oh how times have changed {I love shopping for someone else now and when I shop for myself it's always casual wear ;)}I have my eyes on these Marled sweatpants for myself...Holy I'm A Mom pants..

Have a GREAT weekend! Will update on the happenings our weekend soon!
