five on friday

Happy Friday friends! I can't believe that it's not only Friday, but also the LAST Friday of February. It just crazy to know that March is literally right around the weekend and so is the long awaited Spring.


Five things that made me HAPPY this week

1 // The hubby's birthday. I was a bad blogger and didn't really post any pictures to social media, cause my phone was dying, but just to recap- I took the day off, and we went out to Orland Park, IL (Close to Tinley Park- where all the concerts are) to the Cheesecake Factory. We didn't want to drive into Chicago, and then pay like $20 to park. The hubby had alot of fun, and I'm pretty sure Lil Man and I did too!

2 // While we were in Orland Park for the Cheesecake Factory, we went to Orland Square mall- where they have a stand alone Sephora, Bareminerals, and Lush. I swear, if I lived out that way, I would be so happy- they even had a Nordstrom Rack close by. Anyways, I picked up the deluxe travel size of Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream. I had been wanting to try it out since Kate mentioned it on Instagram, and wasn't wanting to pay $45 for it.

3 // If you follow along on Snapchat (tl_tinywishes), then you saw that I got new glasses! I can't really tell you that I am beyond happy about them- but I am happy and thankful that I can finally see. Before now, it had been about four years, since I updated my prescription. Sure, I went for my exam two years ago, but due to the financial strain, I wasn't able to get a new pair.

4 // We were able to get to the park on Tuesday. I had been promising Lil Man for a few days, but things had always gotten in the way. So after work on Tuesday, the hubby and I decided to finally take Lil Man. He was so happy! And it was a good thing, because the snow started Wednesday.

5 // Wednesday and Friday were snow days this week- meaning that this this week, I've only had to work two days. Weird- but satisfying. But the snow was terrible and Northwest Indiana was basically shut down due to the driving conditions.

Four things I'm looking forward to next week

1 // Doing our taxes. I know it's mundane, but I am really looking forward to the money.
2 // Warmer weather. The weather is supposed to break, and we are in store for temps in the 50s by the weekend. 
3 // My pain management appointment. Saying that my back has been hurting is putting it lightly. I'm hoping the doctor can help without putting me on all sorts of pain medications, which I don't want. 
4 // Time with the hubby and Lil Man.

Three favorite blog posts of the week

1 // My struggle with Postpartum Depression | A Beautiful Little Adventure

Two goals (personal & blog wise) for next week

1 // Work on the budget.
2 // Finish my blog buttons, and get to sponsoring. 

One recipe to make
