{five on friday} a whole lotta random

Happy Friday! I've been lacking on my blogging lately....it's been a super busy week! I was finally able to sneak a few minutes to write my Five on Friday post! So here goes....
I have a slight obsession with candles! Always have! I came across what might be my new favorite "year round" candle this past weekend! It's Voluspa Crane Flower. Oh my yummy....I wish I could do a scratch and sniff riiiight here, but since I can't, you have to check it out!
Speaking of scents...I finally made a trip to Bath & Body Works! Have you been lately?!? They have made lots of changes to the looks of their products and added some new fabulous scents! Currently, I'm loving Amber Blush! It's always hard to just pick one, so it's a good thing they have frequent sales! You better believe I hit up the buy 3, get 3 free! :))
I came across this idea the other day and loved it so much I had to share! Often times, we're so busy during this time of year {just as I mentioned in my second sentence of this post} that it's hard to take the time to truly think and reflect on all of our many blessings! I love the simplicity of this project! She framed the "I Am Thankful" pic, and attached a dry erase marker to the back with velcro. I love the idea of putting it in your kitchen, a gathering place in your home, so it is a constant reminder! I can't wait to make mine up this weekend! Thank you, Crafty Texas Girls for sharing your ideas and creativity!
And speaking of blessings, Ella and I got to spend this past weekend with my parents! They have been gone for the past 6 weeks, so we were SO excited to have them home! We also got to see some of our best friends over the weekend! I didn't get to share my normal "weekend" post, but it was just too much fun not to share!
I'm pretty much in love with anything and everything gold right now {I do apologize if this is the 190th time I've shared that lately}! I've had my eye on this West Elm Stemless gold rimmed set for quite some time! It's a good thing we're close to Christmas, because I'm pretty sure they need to be in my home! ;)) hint, hint hubby and mother dearest!
I love getting to link-up each week with Darci, Natasha, April and Christina! And thank YOU for following along! Wishing you a happy and healthy weekend!

I hit up Bath and Body Works this week and got Sparkling Snow for gifts. They had 7 for $20 which is such a good deal and I got a free item. Those gold rimmed glasses are adorable. And love the Thanksgiving frame. It will serve as a great reminder :)

Those glasses are to die for - a must!! And, I need to try that candle. My favorite of theirs is Baltic Amber!

I love the "amber blush" scent. I just stocked up on some Christmasy soaps :) And those gold-rimmed glasses are beautiful!

I love the new Bath and Body Works design! They also have the best candles. They smell good, melt evenly and have such fun seasonal flavors.
