fave friday



happy friday, lovelies!  i think the cold and snow is really starting to get to me.  and, there is only more coming.  instead of lamenting, i’m just going to look forward to it being the weekend.  see those jammies in the first photo?  they are by duffield lane and i don’t think i’m going to come out of them all weekend!  they are super comfy (as in you will want to wear them every night and probably all day too) and the whole point of their designs are that they are more like lounge wear and no problem if the UPS man comes to your door or you have to run out to get your mail.  all though, my whole neighborhood has probably seen me in my robe, this is a way better option.

and, the chocolate…..my hubby was at the corporate offices for vosges chocolates (otherwise known as the chocolate temple!) this week and came home with a stash.  i usually hide their candy in my closet (for reals) but since there is plenty i thought i needed to see stack it pretty in my pantry (which i’m going to share with you all soon).  i pretty much decided that a well stocked pantry – at least mine – should have an entire shelf dedicated to chocolate.  no?

before, we part for the weekend i wanted to take a moment to say thank you to this month’s amazing sponsors, who truly, help keep this blog going.  be sure to check out the beautiful products they have to offer.

    I have never had Vosges chocolate. My boyfriend and I splurged on some Endangered Species bars last weekend and that seemed insanely expensive!
    By the way, the Sonnet James video really did my heart some good. I’m not a mom, but I am a woman and the whole site and the videos all made me happy. Thanks.

    they are so good. expensive but nice for special occasions. isn’t that video the cutest. i think it did my heart some good too. i think the dresses are great for everyone, mom or not. they would be so cute to wear to work, out shopping or saturday lunch or a walk in town. i just like that they appeal to mom’s who might have lost themselves to yoga pants (guilty!). have a great weekend, jo! xo . t

    I love your links! And I would also love to drink Nutella. That sounds like an excellent idea.

    I’ve been hearing lots of complaints regarding the snow of late. I’m lucky where I live is quite mild but it does rain a lot. I love the jammies. I bought some ‘cute’ jammies but soon realized they made me look like a middle aged giraffe and why would I want that? I will be looking for a more sophisticated pair of pajamas STAT. Have a nice weekend!
