Thankful & Grateful

We had a lovely Thanksgiving with family yesterday but unfortunately I'm back to work today. Luckily it's Friday so I'm sure the day will go quickly and the weekend will make her appearance soon. That being said it's time for some favorites and things to be thankful for.

Life Planner
I just bought my 2017 planner from Target and found they had such a cute selection of planners and stationary this year.  I'm one of those that won't remember to do anything without my good old fashioned planner and it doesn't need to be $50+ dollars. A planner is a planner.

Holiday Cards
I used Minted to order our Business Holiday cards and I loved the selection of designs they have for all types of customizable and photo holidays cards. I'm hoping I can get some photos of my family of 3 in time to send out cards this year.

Tasty Sips
I tasted one of the most delicious sangria's while visiting St. Augustine last weekend and immediately went on the hunt to find a similar recipe. This Tropical Pineapple Coconut Sangria recipe seems to have all the right ingredients to recreate the taste.

4 cups white wine, such as Pinot Grigio or Riesling
2 cups pineapple juice
½ cup coconut rum
1 pineapple, cut into 1" chunks
1 orange, sliced
2 limes (one juiced and one sliced)
2 cups Pineapple Coconut seltzer

Work Style
My new job is a little bit more traditional from previous employers who had a semi-casual dress code. The one requirement is that our shirts have a collar and these Express Portofino Blouses are my favorite and I love that they keep coming out in different colors and patterns.They just went on sale so I snagged 3 new colors for work. 

Yesterday I shared a Throwback Thursday post about when Lola came into our lives so go check it out if you missed it.

 Happy weekend my friends!


  1. LOVE the Express Portofino shirt - they are honestly the best shirts for work or for anything in life lol! Happy Friday :)

  2. I'm so glad that you had a great Thanksgiving, and major bummer that you had to go back to work yesterday! I hope that it went by quickly! That picture of Lola is seriously the cutest!

  3. I got my 2017 planner from Target too. I love it. It's cute, simple, & gets the job done without costing an arm & a leg.

  4. Ahhh baby Lola is too cute I cant handle it!!! I have Minted on my list of places to check out when I am ready to create our Christmas card. I hope I can get it all done in time. I got a planner for Target last year but quit using it like 3 months in to it. I always do that and I need to get better about it! They do have some cute ones.

  5. Love the cards, great message.

    I am waffling between a Sugar Paper from Target (two, actually, one will go back) and an At-a-Glance.

  6. I've always thought I wasn't a huge sangria person, but I think I just wasn't having the right kind-- that one sounds delicious! I usually get a monthly planner from Target every year and love it-- hopefully it's not too late to get one!

  7. Glad your Thanksgiving went well. I also have to have an old-fashioned planner. It's a must-have for me.
