Happy happy Friday!

I’m sharing a Finding Five post with you today (like every Friday) where I talk about five happies from my week.  A happy can be anything that makes you smile or puts you in a good mood in your normal day!  Finding our happies helps us to acknowledge all of the happiness around us in our everyday lives.  I hope to encourage you to find your happies, too!



I’m loving this top so much right now!  It’s a red velvet and so perfect for the holidays.  It has a cute little tie front and goes great with jeans!  Sizes are going quickly so check it out here!

I also wanted to let you know that this top is on sale!  I tried it on in the dressing room last month and fell in love!  It would look precious with a pair of black jeans 🙂


 I got two emails this week that really touched my heart for this holiday season!

Children’s Hospital is giving you the chance to leave a message for families with babies in the NICU during the holidays.  Click here and scroll to the bottom to leave a “message of hope.”

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is also giving you the chance to leave a message for the kids of St. Jude with a card inspired by their artwork.  Find that one here.

I love the idea of getting to send a little hope and Christmas cheer to those kiddos and their families who need it most!



Am I the only one with knotty hair when I get out of the shower?!  This spray is amazing, friends!  It smells incredible and leaves my hair feeling soft and easy to brush through!  Plus it’s only $13 and will last you forever so why not try it?!  Find it here.



We’ve been having so much fun getting into the Christmas spirit over here!  I love when our front door is decorated for the season 🙂

Alexandria and I used to dance in the Nutcracker, so it’s always so special to go watch our dance studio perform it each year.  We love this tradition!



We are celebrating big this week because we are officially FINISHED with classes!  We have one semester left where we will be working in the field, but we never have to experience a semester in the classroom again!


When I got home the night after my last day, Merritt had fresh baked cookies and champagne waiting for us to celebrate!  This was a huge happy and made my night!

That’s it for today!  If you missed my gift guide for the girly girl on your list yesterday, find it here.  I shared a gift guide for all things cozy last week too, and you can find that one here!

I hope you have the very best weekend!
