Finding Five

Happy happy Friday friends!

Every Friday I share a Finding Five post where I talk about five “happies” from my week.  A happy can be any little thing in your day that makes you smile or puts you in a good mood.  Learning to acknowledge our happies during the day makes positive thinking come so much more naturally!

Thanks for sharing my happies with me today!


Last Friday, I changed up my Friday post for the very first time in honor of…

the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

This sale is huge! Nordstrom releases NEW fall items and puts them all on sale for a limited time.  And today, these items go on sale to EVERYBODY! Go check it out here!


I talked a lot about that blardigan (blanket + cardigan aka softest thing ever) that Alexandria’s wearing.  I have this shorter style, and I ordered the new hooded version this year.  My mom, sister and I love these!

Long sleeve tee

I also ordered this tee in black because I needed a new one for layering and such.  It comes in lots of different colors and is less than $20!

To read my post from last week all about the sale, click here.



I sent this picture to Emily this week because I love this plan so much.  It’s on the Bible app and brings you through a devotional and Bible verse every day.  I found this one so encouraging that I’m probably going to order the book that it’s taken from! If you’re looking for something like this too, download the app or find the book here.



Alexandria came to work with me one day this week, and we took this picture walking in.  I’ve been wearing these earrings nonstop! I have them in the Iridescent Drusy color, and they come in two other drusy colors here and ten other stones here.



Emily and I have gotten to meet up for walks/runs at Audubon Park a few times lately, and we’ve been loving every minute of it!


One day this week we even got to go get dinner at Whole Foods after our walk, which is one of our very favorite things to do!


I took this picture during a run this week because it just captures how beautiful this place is.  Audubon Park has a big piece of my heart because I have such sweet memories on this path.  I’ve shared walks with friends, trained for my first half marathon, read books, enjoyed picnics, and even ran part of my half marathon here.  I’m incredibly thankful for this little two mile loop.


Another one of my favorite things to do when I go to the park is stop at the Little Free Library that’s nearby!


I grabbed a couple of books this week that caught my eye!


I bought some new books at Barnes & Noble too 🙂

I made a goal at the beginning of the year to read one book each month, and I’ve been sticking to it and reading even more!

That’s it for today!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I’d love to hear about your happies, too!
