It's the Grad Life: Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!

One week until Christmas!
Are y'all ready, or still have unchecked boxes on your list??
I am so so close to being ready. I just wish the last few presents would wrap themselves. Sometimes being a perfectionist comes back and bites me.

And it wouldn't be Friday without linking up with  AndreaErika & Narci to share my favorite things from this week && I am linking up for the first time with A. Liz Adventures to share my 5.


Comfy Clothes. I have worn comfy clothes all week! I feel like this puppy below. ;)

I am so excited about my new pajamas. It makes two for the Christmas season, but I couldn't resist 40% OFF  #dangyoutarget

This month I participated in my first blogger gift exchange. It was set up through elfster (check it out here) and we had a secret santa exchange online! It was a great experience. My "santa" Megan spoiled me rotten... I can't wait to debut my new blanket scarf. She also gifted me a beautiful notebook. I can't wait to doodle all sorts of blog ideas. :) 
Thanks again, Megan!


Below (he may kill me) you can see some one sound asleep in MY blardigan! I think he now understands my obsession. I have three... He also asked if they make them in his size, but he won't wear it out, just at home.
I laughed so hard.
Blardigan is Shaeffer and Shay's term for this beauty.. It's half blanket, half cardigan.

My Blardigan was picked up during the Anniversary Sale.

It's the most cherished piece in my closet. :)

I also love the Navy  Stripe. It was perfect for Fall football games.

A "Baby" Blardigan is on my wishlist this year. I love the look without the extra bulk. If your family reading this, my birthday's in February ;)


Melanie Shankle has been one of my favorite authors. "Nobody's Cuter than You" was the perfect graduation gift for my roommates. I teared up, was embarrassed for, and literally laughed out loud while reading it. I bought myself another one in her collection this weekend. I can't wait to read for fun! :)
