Friday Favorites | Tuesdays with Jacob

Friday Favorites

January 6, 2017

I have to be honest and tell you there aren't too many things I like about January. Taking down the tree and putting away the decorations always makes the house feel empty, and there's no more festive baking, music, or Hallmark movies. Valentine's and my Birthday are still a month away, and besides a day off for MLK there just isn't much to get excited about. Here in Florida, we can't even hope for snow! 

One things I do love though, is when people start sharing pictures from their Christmases, with presents they are excited about. It might seem like it's too late to gleam present ideas off others but don't forget about Valentine's and birthdays! Here are some things I'm loving lately!

We got Jacob the cat seen above for Christmas, and I love that every purchase from Cuddle + Kind helps fight childhood hunger by providing 10 meals to kids in need. In addition, each doll is handmade in Peru providing local artisans there with sustainable, fair-trade incomes. A win-win-win! 

I love these casual sneakers. They come in so many different colors but I'm especially loving the white with black accents to match just about everything. 

I'm a sucker for nice kitchen gadgets and these gold measuring cups and spoons are making me swoon. 

Add a gorgeous dish towel and mug in there and I may never leave the kitchen.

Speaking of mugs and kitchens, I love this mug storage for small spaces! I'd love to hang something like this under our cabinets.

I have this peplum top in sky blue and it's the most flattering shirt ever. I'm loving the dark grey/black color for winter. 

Winter is the perfect time for cozy crock pot meals and this Jerk Pork with mango-avocado salsa is one of my go-to meals on busy nights. We serve it over cauliflower rice, but any rice will do!

My dad got the mens version of these slippers for Christmas and I wore them once to grab something from the cold garage and now I'm dying for a pair of my own, they are SO soft and comfy!

Part of my New Years goals is to cook more meals at home. I love my Pioneer Woman cookbook and am hoping to add on with one of her new ones soon.

If you haven't taken your kiddos to see SING! yet, you need to ASAP. It was the cutest movie! We went with my parents and every single one of us loved it. We've been having dance parties to the soundtrack on repeat. 

Happy weekend friends! XO
