Friday Favorites ~ Keeping Warm

Linking up with Andrea & Erika for Friday Favorites
I for one am super pumped about this Friday... It's been cold, rainy and just plain meh these past few days AND we have off on Monday! WooHoo ~
Can I get an AMEN for 3 day weekends! I personally feel that ALL weekends should be 3 days long. A 4 day work week and 3 day weekend is a MUCH better ratio! Who's with me!?
Since it's been so cold and yucko ~
I'm going to share my favorite cold weather "go to" things...
Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa
It is just 5 ingredients. It is DELICIOUS and warms you to the core on a cold day.
My Leopard Snuggie
I won this at one of my Christmas Cookie Sweet Swap's as a game prize.
I laughed a bit when I opened it but let me tell you, this thing is FANTASTIC!
I wrap myself up in it on the couch and I'm toasty warm.
(The cats love it too!)
Aruba Aloe Lotion
I picked up the lotion, aloe and burn gel when we were on our honeymoon in Aruba.
Let me tell you this, it is AMAZING stuff! Made right there on the island. Smells divine and makes the driest chappiest crackliest hands feel silky smooth.
I'm using mine sparingly because I only bought the small bottle but it works so great!
My in-laws are going back in April so I'm going to have them grab me another bottle.
Blanket Scarves Galore!!!!
I know I'm mentioned them before but I can't help my love for them!

It's no secret that these bad boys keep you cozy warm when it's cold and possibly snowing like the last pic! (which I wasn't thrilled about) but I'm sure you could tell that from my face.
I got red & black one from: Tara Lynns
And my fall plaid one from: Accessory Concierge
My Remote Start
Thanks to this sweet little remote, I can go from my warm house to my warm car!
And a special thanks to my friend Sean over at Automovite Elegance for installing this in my Camry when I got it. I've had a remote start in 3 cars now. And I honestly can't live without it. I got one for Ted for his Birthday about 2 years ago and HE loves his as well.
I have a little routine of starting my car right before I dry/do my hair and it's the perfect amount of time to warm it up and defrost a bit.
Because walking out from work to a car that looks like this, stinks!
Shay Shull one of my favorite bloggers..
....and her AMAZING story of adoption...
Like all of her other blog readers, I've been reading about her journey of adoption and I just love every bit of her experience. And sweet Ashby London couldn't have a more perfect family to join into. We are all anxiously waiting to hear more about miss Ashby and all the stories Shay will share with us!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
(3 days if you're lucky) 


  1. Ooohhhh I like that remote! Your pic - the last one from the blanket scarves - had me giggling go girl! Have a fabulous weekend - long weekend!

  2. I have the same Snuggie and love it!!! Wish I had a remote car starter...but luckily for me, I don't have to commute to work anymore, which is nice on these cold winter mornings!

  3. So jealous you have a 3 day weekend! And I totally agree they need to change the work week/weekend structure :)
    Love those blanket scarves! I need to get one!
    Have you been tearing up reading all these posts and such for Shay and Shull family? Oh my! Just love it all! Have a great weekend!

    1. Totally tearing about the Shull family! Omg. GET a blanket scarf!!
