Happy Friday everyone!! Are you ready for the weekend ahead? Every Friday I am so ambitious (a little too ambitious) for the weekend ahead and make a BIG list of all the things I want/need to get done. However, most of the time I only get to about half of the things on the list. So this weekend I only put the 4 most important things on my to-do list…that’s right FOUR; hopefully it all gets done :)
On my list is grocery shopping & meal prep, Fall cleaning, clearing out the barn (because we are laying down the cement floor next weekend!), and finishing my book because self love needs to be prioritized too :)
Every Friday I share a few things that have made me smile throughout the week. I love hearing about what’s making you smile, so share it with me in the comments below!
Friday Favorites #23
Have you guys tried this gum? Not only are there no artificial sweeteners, dyes, or flavors, but it tastes great and the flavor lasts forever! It even comes with post chew wraps so you have a place to stick your gum when you’re done with it. I found this at Whole Foods, but you can also get it on Amazon HERE
Olive Oil for Dry Skin
Dry winter skin has already hit me here in New Hampshire! Just as I was about to put on some lotion, I realized I was all out. That’s when I reached for my olive oil. Have you tried this or coconut oil? It works so well! I might not go back to regular lotion. After I get out of the shower I put a few dabs in my hand and put all over my face and body. Talk about sealing in the moisture! This works better than any lotion I’ve ever had.
The Smell of Fresh Baked Cookies
Fresh baked cookies always seem to smell better in the fall. Maybe that’s because I take the summer off from baking, so when that Fall baking smell hits it’s so intense. Last night I made Ginger Molasses cookies and they were MMmmm perfect! and filled the whole house with the most delicious smell!

How cozy and inviting are fireplaces?! I love cuddling up on the couch with a good book in my hands, Jett in my lap, and the fireplace ripping right next to us. Most of the time I don’t make it much longer than 20 minutes before falling asleep; and I’m totally okay with that.
