Five on Friday - November 17, 2017

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week - mine was a little busy but good! I think i'm getting repetitive; but, the baby is teething again this week and has had a few rough nights! So, the days seem to be longer when there is something on the go and I am getting less sleep! Enough complaining though, here are some highlights from my week:


I just received my package from the CBB Secret Santa! Every year a group of beauty bloggers get together and swap gifts - we usually swap makeup; but, my little wishlist had everything from makeup to teas to books! I already tried the Pluck Icewine Berry and it's so good! Plus, 13 Reasons Why was on my to-read list and the mug so cute! 

Plus, my Santa chose to remain anonymous, so thanks to my Secret Santa! 


I hope I'm not the only one who gets 5 awesome new Harry Potter books for their birthday! The 2 History of Magic books are actually new releases and I can't wait to dig in! The Fantastic Beast and Prisoner of Azkaban are newly illustrated editions and the wands book is just to add to my Harry Potter collection! 


This past weekend I went to the Okotoks Market Square and I went with the intention to looking for Christmas gifts and ended up with more baby clothes and bath goodies for myself (go figure!) But seriously, how cute is this sweatshirt from Silas + The Sloth, and these pants from The Stitched Arrow for Elliott?! Gawd... I love handmade baby clothes! And then I picked up a licorice soap and a flower mineral bath tea both from small companies. 


Eeeeekk... how amazing are these Harry Potter goodies?! I already showed you this little hoodie that I picked up from the Harry Potter day in Okotoks a couple of weekends ago! But, I contacted Auggie and Ava to see if they could make my older son a hoodie too and a pair of pants for Elliott too and they turned out perfect! I wanted them to go together; but, not look too matchy matchy when they wear them. I can't wait to see my boys wear these in Universal Studios when we see the Harry Potter section in January! 

This week, Elliott and I started Baby Rhyme Time that is a free class put on by the Calgary Library - they are super popular and usually book up right away so I was excited to get in! It's really cute class to help introduce babies to reading and songs and books! So cute!
