It's Friday! I'm so excited because after today, Kensington doesn't have school for a week (woohoo!). I love having my kiddos home with me...especially this time of year :). Today, the Shull four are taking a quick road trip...lots of carols, Christmas movies and snacking in the car on our way up and our way back down. My favorite part of road trips are almost always that time we spend together in the car :).
Today, I'm linking up with my 3 favorites: Erika, Narci and Andrea and sharing my favorite things...
If everyone could stop and pray for our sweet friend Manda, that would be greatly appreciated. Manda has had a really good week and for that, we are so grateful.
Our prayer specifically is that on Monday, when Manda goes for her scans, that the tumor has responded to the chemo and gotten smaller and that her doctors can review the scans and have an even better picture of how to proceed from here. Prayer works! And we need lots and lots of them!! Please pray for Manda this weekend and especially on Monday. Praying friends is one of my favorites :).
On Thursday, Kensington's school had their annual Fun Run to raise money for their PTA and our sweet girl was so nervous! All week, she told me she was scared and nervous because she didn't know if she could run that many laps and she thought she would be slow. Bless her sweet heart! She really didn't want to run for an hour (who can blame her?!), so she walked most of it (with some insistence from her teacher...she really wanted to stand there), but I was so proud of her for overcoming something she didn't want to do. She did her very best and made this mama's heart really proud.
Last Friday, many of you shared your Christmas music obsession with me (apparently, I'm not the only one). So, I just wanted to remind you that my Shade of Shay on my favorite Christmas music post is here...I bet we share many of the same favorites :).
Am I the only one who watches TV Land? All of my favorite reruns are on TV Land, so I seem to have my DVR recording that channel often. They have been running promos for this new show called Younger coming out in January starring one of my very favorite Broadway actresses, Sutton Foster. The previews look so cute and I'm really excited for it to start. Am I alone? Has anyone else heard of this? I know I'm not the only one watch Friends reruns at night ;)!
On the foodie blog today is my yummy Chicken Florentine Enchiladas! Next week, when you need a break from turkey and dressing, you're going to want to try this recipe!
And since last week was Holiday Dresses Week over here and this week is Holiday Party Shoe Week, I thought I'd end our Friday with some more cute holiday party shoes! All fun finds came from Nordstrom who asked me to review these sparkly goodies!
I'm still a big fan of my blush colored patent heels. They're the perfect little neutral shoe to wear year around. And the great thing about patent leather is that you can wear it in yucky weather and they don't get destroyed.
I received several comments from readers who have these pewter gold pumps and everyone seems to love them! They would look super cute with a sassy dress or a pair of black pants.
And I love me a Steve Madden shoe because they always, always, always fit true to size. I think these rhinestone pumps are just super fun.
This was the party shoe with the most feedback. Several of you already own a pair (available in black, silver and nude) and said they are really comfy. Comfy and pretty? Hello! That's just perfection.
And let's be real...we all truly appreciate, want and need the cozy slippers (for us and for gifts too). Sigh. I wish I had a pair on right this very second.
And if you're looking for pajamas to go with those slippers, these are my very favorite. I plan on wearing them 24/7 when the weather turns really cold and I'm hibernating in my house with my new baby. For now, you will find me in them every day from 5:00 PM until 7:00 AM. #noshame
Happy Friday friends! On Monday, my Shade of Shay on some of our favorite Christmas traditions! See you then!
