Oh Sweet Friday

As much as I love this time of year, my schedule has been jam packed all month and the exhaustion and overload is epic this year. I've loved every second of it, but I am really looking forward to Christmas next week and having a week and a half off to recharge.
1. I went to Starbucks on Tuesday with one of my fav co-workers, and we were looking forward to another Holiday Spiced Flat White, but alas they were out of said "holiday spice". The barista had the idea of adding cinnamon and nutmeg to our skinny vanilla lattes instead, and it was a win!
2. For my work Christmas party this year we enjoyed a fun happy hour with yummy apps and drinks which featured their own brewed craft beers, wine, and specialty cocktails. Lots of wine and good times were had, it's always great to disconnect from work and celebrate the year together.
3. Roxy always gets excited for her monthly Chewy shipment, and I love that she's getting natural healthy treats. She's been enjoying Blue Buffalo Mini Blue Bars with apples and yogurt.
4. I've been sporadic in blog land lately, and have a lot of catch up on reading to do of my daily favs. So, I rounded up some of my posts from the past few weeks in case you're playing catch up as well. Tis the season!

5. Loving my recent finds on Pinterest, so much beautiful festiveness!


Linking up today with Rebecca for That Friday Blog Hop, April for 5 on Friday, Tif for High Five for Friday, and Amanda for Friday Favorites. Hop on over and join us! Happy Friday!

  11. I so wish I had a break this time of year. In fact, I just found out that I have to work on Christmas Eve until 5pm. The whole day. No leaving early and they certainly will not close early. It really upset me but it is what it is. I'm trying not for it to ruin my Christmas but it is hard. Those gingerbread martini's look so good.

  18. Dying over the pictures of Roxy! She should make more appearances on the blog! She would be a great accessory to some of your outfits :)

  19. I am not a big fan of the new holiday spice flat white, I think you were better off with the concoction that your barista created. That sounded delicious! Great stocking picks!

  30. It definitely sounds like you've had a busy but fun week! Work Christmas parties are always so much fun because it gives you a chance to hang out with your coworkers outside of the office. Love that Roxy really enjoys her Chewy shipment! Dart always gets so excited when his Bark Box arrives every month!
