Friday Favorites: Last One Before Christmas

Happy Friday, friends! I can't believe we're already celebrating Christmas this weekend. This will be my last post until probably mid-next week, as we'll be doing loads of Christmas-ing with family until then. 

Here are my favorites this week: 

Not exactly a "favorite," to be honest, but we have been battling a nasty cold virus in our house for over 10 days now: high fevers, lots of snot, lots of coughs, a few trips to the pediatrician's office, more medicine doled out than I have in a long time, breathing treatments powered through and practically everything in our house washed and/or disinfected. Thankfully the boys are on the up and up and we are breaking out of the house this weekend for a couple of family Christmas events. 'Tis the season. 

I'm not sure I ever shared our Christmas card this year! (Insert monkey-covering-its-eyes emoji here.) I ordered them via Amazon Prints and was super impressed with the quality. I ordered 75 of them (which also included envelopes and return address printing on the envelopes) and used a coupon code for 50% off my entire order. My entire total was $30.44! I spent more on stamps than I did the actual cards! Further proof that there's nothing Amazon can't do. ;) 

On a recent trip home, I forgot my makeup remover wipes and face wash, and my sweet Nana came to the rescue with sample sizes of this makeup remover and this face wash...and y'all, I became addicted. She sent me home with the sample sizes and I just couldn't get enough. And, well, speaking of Amazon, I Prime'd the heck out of these two items recently and have been so pleased! 

Run, do not walk to Target to pick up this candle. I picked it up on a whim there earlier this week and it has been burning nonstop in my house. It smells delicious! 

Have y'all ever heard of Latchy Catchy? It's a door latch cover/silencer that allows the child's door to shut softly and not "click" when you close it. (Because haven't we all been there with laying your baby down only to have them wake up when the door closes?! I'm raising my hand because YES.) 

I'm kind of obsessed with sleep in this house (if you didn't know) and these amazing little contraptions help us do just that: sleep. I'm so thankful that Latchy Catchy sent us these to try out; I'll be adding these to every baby shower gift I attend from here on out...they're that good. (And I'm not just saying this because they sent it to me. I really was impressed!!!) 

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy spending time with those you love.
