Friday Finds | Vol. 1

Hey, friends! Happy Friday! The first one of 2018! This week flew by since it was only a 4 day work week. I'm slowly getting into a routine with working more during the day and having the boys out of the house on work days has been huge!

If you don't know, Bennett started daycare this week (he will go 3 days a week, just like Cam) and it has been a little bit of a tough transition for both of us. Actually, I think I cried more than Bennett did the first day we dropped him off 😭. But, I know eventually he will grow to love 'school' just like his older brother and I know he will learn so much there! We love our daycare and the ladies there are the best!

Besides that, we are all just trying our best to stay warm because it is freezing cold here in Ohio and there is still snow on the ground. I loved seeing all my Charleston bloggers' posts of all the snow they got there! So crazy! 

Anyways, I wanted to start the year off with my first Friday Finds post today! I really like sharing these posts with different things I've found that are good deals, or just great finds in general with you all and you guys seem to enjoy these posts as well!

So, here we go....

1. This MarleyLilly pull over is still on sale for less than $40 (originally $60)! I've posted about it a few times on instagram, but I don't think I've mentioned it on the blog yet. I got one for Christmas and I seriously wear it all the time! It is long enough to wear with leggings and has elbow patches! I sized up to a medium for a loser fit so I could wear it over t shirts, or layers.

2. I also got this Black + Decker hand vacuum for Christmas and I have been using it everyday! It is so perfect for quick clean ups around the house or even just picking up all the little dust bunnies in the corners (because hashtag wood floors).

3. It has been so bitterly cold recently that all I want to wear are cozy sweaters and cardigans! Even though the Nordstrom half yearly sale is over, there are still so many cute sweaters and cardigans marked down. I have my eye on this cozy cardigan and this adorable off the shoulder sweater!

4. I've started to gather some simple, healthy meal recipes on Pinterest in the hopes I can get my meal planning act together this year. I'm all about crock pot, sheet pan, one pot recipes to make the cooking and cleaning process easier! If you have any good ones, send them my way or leave the link in the comments below!

5. It's only the first week of January and I'm already looking forward to Valentine's Day! Have you all seen the new line of V-day decorations at Target?! Ughhh... give me all the pretty pink and red things!

That's all I got for this week! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!


  1. I love seeing all the cute Valentine's Day decor at Target! I bet that day care transition is so hard on all of you but you're right, it will hopefully get easier. We are doing Whole30 right now so I feel like my life is revolving around prepping food and making meal plans. Hopefully it doesn't burn me out for the rest of the year lol! Have a good weekend, girl!

  2. That hand vacuum needs to make an appearance in my house because hardwood floors + dog hair! We are cleaning up constantly. Stay warm this weekend, friend!

  3. I'm with you on a good dustbuster, basically life changing! Hope daycare keeps going well!!

  4. Having kids transition into daycare can be so tough! I hated doing it with my son, but now he loves going to daycare a few times a week and I love being able to work part time. It's a win, win. Hopefully things will get easier with Bennett soon

    Have a wonderful week!
