Oh Hey Friday: My Friday Favorites

I wish I could say its Friday and be excited about it!! But I will be excited when it is midnight tonight and I am home from the business trip I’m currently on. It has been a few weeks since I posted a Friday Favorites so here it is!

I’ve bought several things for the house lately or finally finished projects and I’m loving it all.

ONE: Monogrammed Ridiculously Soft Throw Blanket

I had purchased this blanket like a year ago with the plans of doing just this to it and finally got it done. It is absolutely no secret that I love monograms, pretty much if it’s not moving I will monogram it. And if it is moving chances are I will have something monogrammed to stick on it. This blanket is the perfect touch for our living room and my husband said “Oh wow, that is soft! Great, is it one of those soft expensive blankets that I can’t use?” haha no but he has nicely left it folded here so far.

TWO: Random Cow Creamer and Milk Bottle

So, we don’t drink coffee {gasp, I know} and have no reason to use creamer but for some reason I just couldn’t leave this little guy at the store. The milk bottle was just for cuteness to pair with Henry…Henry the cow. Both were found at Kohl’s and on sale!

THREE: Cupcakes and Cashmere

I spotted this adorable book “Cupcakes and Cashmere” in a resort gift shop while I was in Utah last month and fell straight in love. I was a little outraged at the price and found it on Amazon Prime for a fraction of the price they had it listed for. Swooped it right up and the Amazon stork delivered it right to me. It has some pretty fabulous entertaining ideas, recipes and fashion tips. Love it and makes for a pretty cute “counter top book” in our kitchen.

FOUR: Framed Monogram

This was also a project I had intentions on finishing at the first of the year. I ordered the monogram last December and just now framed it this week. Our guest bathroom is done in grey and white but I knew I wanted it framed and in there. I went back and forth on the color of the frame for awhile since the monogram is black everything seemed weird in my head. I finally found this frame at Hobby Lobby and since it is distressed with black undertone I thought it took away from the harsh black and white look. I love it!

FIVE: Eucalyptus Sugar Scrub

Holy, scrub awesome! I went to Bath & Body Works a couple weeks ago in search of some scrub for a co-workers birthday and ended up picking myself some up as well. I love the stress relief eucalyptus hand lotion so I knew without a doubt I’d love the scrub. I’ve been pretty much alternating between the scrub and coconut oil for my night showers. Love how soft it leaves me feeling and of course the smell is to die for. I have naturally oily skin so I shower at night and then again in the morning and I do not use either the scrub or oil in morning showers. I’m already anticipating the Bath and Body Work’s Winter Semi-Annual sale now!   
Enjoy your weekend everyone! Today I am linking up with September Farm for Oh Hey Friday!
