Happy First Friday of 2018, friends!
And what a doozy of a week!
We made it back from Kansas on Sunday, laid fairly low until yesterday, when Sloane had a small surgery in the morning. Sidenote: Thanks to everyone that sent sweet messages and checked in on us! The surgery was very fast and we were home by 10:30 and she was back to her normal self by 10:45. She has a small bandage on her forehead and won’t be able to take a bath or shower until Saturday. We will also have to work on the small scar that will accompany this, but we will take that versus the alternative.
But we have earned these Friday Favorites, so let’s do it!
This first favorite is in honor of my dad. My anal retentiveness comes from him (Thanks, dad!) and he and I are in total sync when it comes to the organization of electronic cords. When I had left my charger at home during Christmas vaca, my dad told me where to go to find his extra chargers.
I opened the magic bag and behold – organized cords! And all because of these fastening wrap strips! For $6.99, you too can have an organized bag of cords! These bad boys are wonderful and keep everything together, rather than one big heaping pile of tangled madness!
So for the organized freaks like myself and my dad, or those that are eager to be more like us, start here! 😉
My name is Allyson and I have an expensive shoe problem.
Good news is this problem isn’t something that I take action on. As in, I want ALL of the expensive shoes but don’t own one pair of them! So… maybe not a real problem? But I’m winning the lottery so … SHOES FOR EVERYONE!
I saw these Everlane shoes (The Day Heel) on a blogger (shocker) and THEN I saw them in ruby red. Lawdy… this Kansas girl can’t stay away from a ruby red shoe! 🙂 I’m in love with them, but here’s the deal – I wear dress shoes maybe once a week for maybe an hour and a half. I wear Uggs every day, all day. So spending $155 on a pair of shoes is tough for me… but these shoes. I need.
I LOVE this color as well – they are super classy with a pair of black pants. Oh Lottery Gods, come hither! 🙂
I bought this sherpa jacket from Amazon after reading about in from The Mom Edit. They showed theirs in an oatmeal color, and I honestly couldn’t decide which color I liked more so I went with the gray.
It’s more of charcoal (as you can see on me, in the left), and probably not AS pretty as the version they show on the right (with their beautiful lighting). But it’s unbelievably soft and comfy, which was the comment I got from most people yesterday – it looks soft and comfy!
It has two pockets in the front and a hood in the back… and it’s perfect for those lazy days. I’m not one that finds sherpa to be something you wear out to something nice… but for those days where you just have errands to run and want to be comfortable, this is it!
And… it’s $22. I got a small and felt the sizing was right on. Grab one before they are gone and won’t be back until April! 🙂
That’s a wrap for this week, folks. We are laying semi-low this weekend – probably a Costco trip where we will be strictly buying from the list, maybe a movie with Sloane to treat her for being so brave on Thursday and a big trip to UPS to ship off all of the gifts that arrived AFTER we left for Christmas break! Classic! 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone and stay tuned for a new and improved Tess and Elm, hopefully coming to you next week! EEK! 🙂
