I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library 

-Jane Austen

Trader Joe’s flowers. They are the bessssst. And with valentines coming up, always a good reason to pick some up, right?

The Woodwright’s School in Pittsboro. How cool is this place? Ericka and I got to see a class in progress while we were there last week, and what an amazing place. I Need to find out if they have classes for kids because I will be signing Owen up! (You know I love all things Old Salem and Williamsburg, so I am all about this. And if you haven’t been to Pittsboro, it is worth the trip!)

Sweet’s Syrup.  A dear friend of mine told me about this, so we are currently taking all the elderberry to hopefully ward off more sickness. The kids love the way it tastes, too!

Renting videos on Lifeway.com. I recently bought a new Bible Study at Lifeway for my quiet time everyday, and I love that you can rent the videos that go with it. So many great videos to watch here.

Giving keys has a mini collection – love these! 

Addis Jemari. This week I photographed their new collection of bags. Not only is this non profit amazing, but the bags are so beautiful! I can’t wait to share all of the images soon!

Katie Daisy Baby Swaddles are coming soon! Katie Daisy is one of my favorite artists (see her new book here!) and I am so excited that she is coming out with baby swaddles soon!

 Stranger Things Valentine Cookies. yesssss!!!

I really still can’t stop listening to Ed Sheeran and Andrea Bocelli. On repeat, all day everyday. My kids are so tired of hearing it, I am sure. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch now. which reminds me I haven’t listened to it yet today, so turning it on now…I’m always walking around the house…”Dentro la nostra musica….”

After finishing When Calls The Heart, there is a Christmas special on you tube. Love how tv is now with the apps you can watch you tube on the tv. I’m so thankful for my husband, I’d still be watching my college tv and vhs. (We just recently got rid of this tv…)

I somehow missed that you can get pineapple upside down cake with your Dole Whip because I am always in the zone and order, “Pineapple pineapple float” as soon as it’s my turn. So next trip I will be ordering this.

This week I finished The Woman in Cabin 10. It was a really good quick read for me, right up there with  Gone Girland  The Girl on the Train. (If you liked both of those books, this is a good read)

Owen and I finished reading aloud In The Belly Of The Earth I will admit, it was a little intense but my sweet seven year old just loved it, and it was a great way to spend time together. I just wanted to get to the ending so badly, I almost cheated and read it while he was at school.

“Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”

-Winnie the Pooh

I finished When Calls the Heart on netflix this week and now I just need to know, are there more seasons?!?

Airplane mode. This really makes me happy because I go to bed super early friends..Ever since I was pregnant with my second child, I started going to bed early. Mainly because I just need my sleep to function. Putting my phone in airplane mode means no late night texts or messages wake me up and it’s always fun to get all the notifications when I turn it back on the next day.

Forever My Girl Movie. A friend and I were able to get out and go to a movie one late afternoon this week which was super exciting. Movie popcorn? yessssss! So it just sounded like it was going to be a sweet love story movie, which it was. But also, super emotional and so many tears…like sobbing having to use the movie theater napkins to wipe my face. (but I cry at every movie seriously. but this one YES)

I met Mariah in Orlando when she did my hair and makeup for our family photos in Disney World. She is such a make up genius and I was super amazed how she covered up my broken out skin from all the Florida humidity and walking. She has a great tutorial for covering up blemishes but still looking natural here. And she sells her own makeup line here.

Another fave of mine is fast forwarding through suspense and tv/movie scenes I do not like. Michael is always like WHHHHATTT? Why are you fast forwarding? The show is finally getting good…And I’m all like NOOOOO I can’t watch!

On a healthier note, I made these Toasted Quinoa Cashew Butter Cups this week, and they were even Michael approved.

Harrison and I watched Winnie the Pooh together one evening, and oh, do I love Winnie the Pooh. (and I think we have a new Winnie the Pooh fan in our house) We joined the Disney movie club this week (5 movies for 1.00 and then Harrison got a free Lightning McQueen blanket, and you know he is obsessed.) So we have more movies to get us prepared for our next trip, which is right around the corner.

I got some of the Harper + Ari sugar scrub for Christmas and forgot about it. Yes, i know, HOW DO YOU FORGET about sugar scrub?!?! I love the single serve option! So fun!

These boots.  I didn’t buy any tall boots this winter but if I was going to pick a pair, love these + how comfortable they look!

I’m still watching When Calls The Heart on netflix and I’m almost through with season four. I’m going to be super sad when it’s over. There are more seasons coming, right? I was a super big Janette Oke  reader growing up.

I love some Carrot Cake and these look perfect.

We finally went to see The Last Jedi this week, and oooh, I loved it. Before the movie, Owen asked for a 5.00 toy at Target and we talked about choosing experiences over things and how we were going to a movie. After the movie, he said it was way better than getting a small toy. Just warmed my heart.

It was time to get new glasses because yay, January, insurance starts over. Yes, I did get aviator prescription glasses, and I loooove them. They are so much fun. You can see a pic on my instagram stories.

If you like to look at different brands and fonts, this is a super inspiring instagram account.

You probably know that I’m reading and loving Be the Gift  by Ann Voskamp. Just loved page 11 so much..”What if the truth really is that every tremor of kindness here erupts in a miracle elsewhere in the world?”

My little ones have loved cooking with me in the kitchen and I’ve been looking at aprons. These chambray aprons are just so adorable, (they come with pink or navy ribbon)  and of course, I love the star wars!

These have been my favorite pens  lately + they are perfect for writing in my GraceLacedbook.

Oh so adorable personalized football Valentine jammies 

If you follow me on instagram, you will notice that I just got into instagram stories this week. It’s a great source of entertainment for me during carpool. Love it.

We made Pan Banging chocolate chip cookies this week, and this is my favorite recipe ever! So yummy! (Find the recipe here) Banging the pan was kind of fun, too.

Their Mommy + me selection is super cute. I want the I’m not working today set – ha!

This winter harvest hummus bowl looks so super yummy. And I’m seriously hungry now.

I’ve been watching When Calls the Heart on netflix when editing. It took me a few episodes to get reeled in and now I am hooked.

Keto honestly scares me a little bit but I love eggs so all these recipe ideas, oh yum!

The teddy bear coat trend is an interesting idea.

New KitchenAid attachment– wow!

I wore these shoes at Disney and they were super comfortable. I mostly wear them everywhere now. (And some favorite sweatshirts for the trip here and here) I will admit I was a little tempted to buy some run Disney gear when we were there since it was the marathon, and I will never ever run it, but the jacket was fun! ha!

This instagram post – super encouraging.

A great post about affordable large art.

Did anyone else listen to Adventures in Odyssey as a kid? The boys have loved listening to this!

And because we really don’t understand or know how to handle below freezing temperatures in NC but seem to have a lot of them lately, how to dress when it’s freezing outside. 

Loving this post this week, especially since we, in North Carolina, can relate to the snow.

I love these weekly cleaning schedules. Half the time it goes out the window, but it’s fun to have on the days I actually have time to pick up the vacuum.

These snow boots are so adorbs! And we know we still have two more months for it to snow. Ahhhhhh!

Saving for our next trip!

Going to see the new Star Wars tonight! Eeeek! Will let you know what I think!
