Friday Favorites

Happy Friday ya'll! I can't believe its December 1st! Christmas is officially upon us and I know it's going to go so fast. I am really trying to slow down and enjoy the season. Our Elf came for a visit today and I can't wait to share with you our North Pole breakfast next week!

On to my favorites...

O N E | We kicked off the holiday season with our first Train of Lights ride last night. Our little town has the cutest mini train at our rec. It's open every Sunday from May-October and then it is transformed into a winter wonderland during the month of December. For $2 you get to ride the train and see the lights. It's such a fun tradition and one that I hope we continue for a long time!

T W O | This recipe...My friend Megan told me to make this soup and we had it last night. It is SO good! I had two bowls full..The perfect weeknight meal for a cold night, yum! I made mine in the crockpot and it worked just fine!

T H R E E | Did you miss my Gift Guide for Men that I posted on Wednesday? Check it out for some good ideas! Next week We are doing our final gift guide link up and doing gifts for the hostess and/or stocking stuffers!

F O U R | I picked up this sweater in army green at Target a few weeks back and it quickly became a favorite of mine. So much so that I ordered it in cream and it arrived yesterday! I can't wait to wear it all winter!

F I V E | Today starts day 1 of our Christmas Photo Challenge! I am linking up with Stephanie and several other of my blogger friends to host this! Just follow the prompts and post your photo on IG and use the hashtag #2017christmasmoments

S I X  | We have lots of fun Christmas things planned this weekend. Tonight we are meeting my FIL, BIL and nephew for dinner and then going to the botanical gardens for their lights show. It's always a fun night. Tomorrow we have our town parade, and then Jack and I are headed to a meet and greet with the Grinch (he is so excited about this!) and then we have a date night and the boys are spending the night with Grandaddy! A busy but fun weekend ahead!

I hope you all have a great Friday and a fun start to December!

Linking up with April, Andrea and Katie
