Happy Friday! I'm linking up with the ladies at A Little Bit of Everything, Love and Grace and Momfessionals for their Friday Favorites Link-up. And....today is my birthday. We don't usually make a big deal out of adult birthdays at our house. M and I don't even get each other gifts. We will go out to dinner as a family to celebrate, but that's about all.
We also don't do gifts for each other for anniversaries so throughout the year, I just give myself whatever it is that I want or need. These gifts are not limited to things.
On this wonderful Friday, I'd like to share some of my favorite gifts to myself.
Morning Quiet Time
I try to take advantage of the time between putting my 2 older boys on the school bus and when the baby wakes up. During that time, I try to have some time just for me to have my morning coffee and read my favorite blogs. Sometimes it lasts for 30 minutes and sometimes it lasts for 5 minutes depending on when Mark wakes up. On the days that I do get about 30 minutes of quiet time, I find that I start the day off more calmly.
Time with Friends - Without the Children
Tonight, I'm going to a glassblowing studio to learn about at the art of glassblowing and make my very own glass pumpkin with a couple of girlfriends. I'm so excited to learn something new and do something I've never done before. And do it with friends. I hope my pumpkin comes out well :-)
I got these for myself during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in July. I've seen these all over Pinterest have been coveting them for about a year. When I saw this version ON SALE, well, I just couldn't resist. I may get a chance to break them in tomorrow because the weather people say there may be a storm blowing in tomorrow morning. Yippee!
Tory Burch - The Miller Sandal
Again, I've been wanting these for a year but could never pull the trigger. Well, a couple of days ago, Tory Burch had a friends and fans coupon for 25% off. So I splurged. I know it's fall, but these will never go out of style.
