Five on Friday

Someone please tell me that teething gets easier as your little love gets older! We are going on three sleepless nights and today I am feeling like its going to be a whole lotta coffee kinda day!! Oh the joys, but its Friday! The hubs has to be out late for a field trip, but luckily the in-laws are saving the day and we are making heaps of Christmas cookies and are having a play date this morning! 

Not counting this one, but I can not even begin to process that we have one Friday left till Christmas!! Im not a big fan of Thanksgiving being so late. I feel so messed up right now its not even funny y'all!! 

Linking up with DarciNatashaChristina, and April to kick off my birthday weekend!


..ONE..

I have been seeing this advent devotional book in my Instagram feed and decided that I needed to get on board and see if this book was really as good as everyone kept saying it is. Well, let me tell y'all, BEST book I have read in a long time. Ok, devotional book anyway. Ann Voskamp is an amazing writer and what she writes is beyond powerful! I cant get enough of this book! If you want a good devotional read {yes, even if we are getting closer to Christmas} look no further! 

"The authority of God made all of creation, but it was the affection of God that made His children"

Go read it!!


..TWO..

..THREE..

My MIL and I went and tried a new tea place yesterday and I think both of us were surprised at how amazing it was! We ate lunch there, which was crazy good, and the best part... they had the best cupcakes in the entire world, vegan cupcakes to be exact! The tea was amazing as well! I've been a big fan of Teavana, but after reading about how a lot of their tea is made up of GMO's and pesticides, we have ventured to another local place called Tebella, which is great too, but after yesterday, I think my new fav is Kaleisia Tea Lounge. Excellent tea, great prices, and a really unique atmosphere! We will be going back there! If you are a tea lover, order online or if you live in the Tampa area go try these places out!


..FOUR..

So last week Target had carseats on sale, and since Paisley is almost growing out of her infant carseat, we decided that we need to move on up in the world to a convertible carseat! I researched like crazy, what the best carseat would be in our price range, our car, and what would last us longer and allow us to rear face Paisley as long as possible, and we ended up choosing the Graco Myride 70 carseat in Jigsaw. Target had it on sale for $127.99, normally $159.99 and then if you spent $75 on Black Friday you got a 20% off coupon, so with the sale, the coupon and 5% off using your Target Redcard, it brought us to a whopping $96.00!! Can you believe the savings?? And I think some little girl likes her new seat....you be the judge :)


..FIVE..

Tuesday I turn another year older, and unlike most years where it feels like its just another day, I am looking forward to sharing this day with Paisley. I am hoping we get the chance to make it to the Winter Wonderland at the zoo. Besides the gazillions of lights they have, they will have reindeer, and of course many of the other fun animals! Paisley is going to flip and I just cant wait to see her excitement, which make for the worlds best birthday ever!!


Let the birthday celebrations begin!!

Happy weekend friends!!

  4. New to your blog from the link-up. We just had to buy three car seats since our kid ha, too, outgrown hers. Bought them at target on sale. Get this, HAD TO BUY THREE! One for me, my husband and my mom because we all shuffle our little miss around so much. Wish I had grabbed them on black Friday like you did, though! :)
