Hi there, friends! Happy Friday! I hope that you have some fun plans on your weekend agenda. It's felt a little crazy around here this week. You know those weeks where it feels like you just cannot get caught up no matter how hard you try? Yeah, I've had one of those! I'm really hoping to take this weekend to just catch up on things, including some recipe testing and fun projects for you guys! So, besides bridesmaid dress shopping on Sunday afternoon with my sister for her wedding (yay!!!) I'll be chipping away at some blog posts and other miscellaneous things.
Before I sign off for the weekend I'm stopping by with my usual round-up of the things that made me smile this week. As usual, I'd love to hear what you've been loving. Let me know in the comments!
1. Target's Dollar Spot: Christmas Edition
Oh man, guys, we're in trouble. Target's Dollar Spot has done it yet again. They now have Christmas gift bags, wrapping paper, gift tags, and everything that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside stocked and ready to jump into your shopping cart. ALL FOR ONE DOLLAR. It took everything in me to not grab about ten of everything. If you haven't been to Target recently and love hopping on the Christmas train early like I do - go!!!
2. Nutrition/Beauty YouTube Channel
Excuse the not-so-pretty screenshot from my phone, but I've been following Becca's YouTube channel for awhile now, and I always love her videos! Becca's a Registered Dietitian and shares nutrition information on her channel, like how to choose the healthiest granola bars and different healthy dinner ideas! She also posts make-up and skincare videos every so often which I love! Definitely check her out!
3. HIIT & Ab Workout
Have you guys ever done a workout from Tone It Up's YouTube channel? If not, you're missing out! Karena and Katrina's workouts are awesome. I mean...look at them! They must be doing something right. Their workouts are relatively short, but you'll quickly work up a sweat while doing one! This HIIT and Ab workout is calling your name for a quick weekend workout. Give it a try!
4. Love Your Melon Winter Hats
I follow Love Your Melon on Instagram and they recently just came out with their new line of winter hats, and man, they're adorable! One of these will be going right to the top of my Christmas list. The best part? During the holiday season Love Your Melon donates 50% of their proceeds of each hat to nonprofit partners to help fight pediatric cancer. It's a feel good kinda gift, friends.
5. Hallmark Channel's Christmas Movies
Okay, I may or may not be a little, teensy, tiny bit embarrassed that this made it to my Friday Favorites. To be completely honest, I totally used to make fun of Hallmark's cheesy-everything-works-out holiday movies. BUT, I've had a change of heart. You know, sometimes it's just nice to watch a movie that's uber cheesy and has everything work out just the way it's supposed to in the end. If you were nodding your head when I was talking about jumping on the Christmas chain early, turn on the Hallmark channel at some point this weekend. I bet you'll end up changing your mind just like me (if you don't already love it)!
Alright friends, that's what I've been loving this week! I'd love to hear what you've been loving. Let me know in the comments.
Happy Weekend! Keep up with me this weekend by following me on Instagram (username: joyfullyjenna)
