Friday Favorites 12.12.14

Hello Friday! After two four day weekends in a row it almost felt like Friday would never get here.

Today marks a special day for the blog. 

This is officially post #200! 

I know 200 isn't that many but for me it feels huge. This blog has grown more than I imagined it would and I have made so many wonderful friendships. I am so excited to see where the next 200 posts will take me.

Onto this weeks Friday picks.  

{ONE} Holiday Home Tour

Yesterday I posted our Holiday Home Tour.

I had so much fun linking up with Jenny from The Chronicles Of We and Courtney from Sweet Turtle Soup. If you want to join us the fun will continue through 12/17.

{TWO} Etsy Shop

After years of debating and thinking I took the plunge and finally opened an Etsy shop.
I am so excited and nervous about this new adventure.

You can check out my shop which currently has some beautiful plaid infinity scarves.

You can also find us on Facebook so you can stay up to date as I add more items. 
I am thinking maybe some knit items soon, ear-warmers & boot cuffs possibly. 

{THREE} Christmas Card Contest Winner

A couple months ago Marissa entered a Christmas Card contest that my dad's work holds every year. She did two drawings and I let her pick her favorite to turn in. I had completely forgot about it until last week when my dad sent me an email. Not only did Marissa win her age group, she was chosen as the overall winner for his location.

Her prize was the most obnoxious horn ever and a $50 Wal-Mart gift card.

We are so proud. 

{FOUR} Countdown To Christmas

If you aren't joining the Christmas Countdown Link-Up your missing out. We just wrapped up week 3 and it has been so much fun posting and reading about everyone's Christmas fun.

The link up continues on with any and all things Christmas.

We hope you will join us soon

{FIVE} Bob The Elf

Here is what Bob was up to this week.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday.
