Five on Friday

Not only is it Friday but it's the last full work week for the year so that's pretty exciting! I'm also relieved my husband is finally returning home tonight after being gone for two weeks for his new job. It's been slightly stressful holding down the fort 100% solo. Other than that, I have some fun things to share from this week.

ONE:
Monday can actually be classified as a fave (for the first time ever) because I took the morning off to relax after all the birthday and holiday party celebrations over the weekend (here and here). I got into work after lunch to find the sweetest birthday card and Kohl's gift card from my team. 

My company also gifted every employee with a new Apple TVs for the holidays. Who knew a Monday could be that good? Just need to figure out how to work the thing.



TWO:
My birthday on Sunday was such a treat with the girls and I love all the goodies I raked in including a Rocksbox membership, Alex & Ani bangles, a 'happy birthday' stemless wine glass and this amazing Marc Jacobs Decadence perfume that K gave me.

THREE:
Some pretty holiday/NYE party dresses I stumbled about while browsing LuLu's website.

FOUR:
I've been enjoying my Christmas tree at night all lit up along with all the small decorations throughout the house and our outdoor lights. I'm excited for Christmas next week to say the least.


FIVE:
I'm thankful and loving all the Christmas cards I've received from blogger friends near and far. Thank you ladies! xoxo


Bonus Fave:
If you love testing and reviewing free products, I recommend signing up for Influenster. They send out free boxes of goodies depending on your interests and profile and I've gotten some great things to test such as makeup, cosmetics, protein bars and other nutrition products.

  1. Loving your holiday decor! Having the tree lights on at night is so pretty--I love it too! Yay for taking off the day from work AND for getting such a great gift from work! You really might have had the best Monday ever haha. Lulu's website is great--I love how affordable their prices are and most of the things I've gotten from there had been decent to really good quality.
    Hope you have a great weekend girl!

  8. I'm so jealous that you got an Apple TV from your work for Christmas! That's so cool! That was so sweet of your coworkers to have a card waiting for you when you got into the office on Monday. It is hard to hold down the fort while the husband is out of town, but I'm so glad that K is back just in time for some more birthday celebrations and Christmas!
