Friday Favorites 2.12.16

TGIF!  I am so happy that we have made it to the long weekend.  I have a random array of favorites today.

What did we do before googling?  This week google saved me.  I was going out of my mind at work, trying to figure out how to angle a chart label.  Insert google.  I knew it was an easy thing, but could not figure it out myself.  Within a few minutes, I knew how to do it.  Thanks, google!

My new hairspray arrived (TRESemme 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray)!  I found out about this spray via Karly's blog.  I couldn't find it in any stores, so when I was ordering a few things off Amazon, I quickly added it to my cart.  I have only used it one day, but I really like it!  I am constantly trying to find ways to add volume to my hair.  I feel like this spray did the job and had a really nice hold throughout the day.



Valentine's Day presents.  My parents have always gotten us small presents for Valentine's Day.  I am so happy that this has continued, even as we have gotten older.  My mom always puts together a cute little bag, adorable tags, and thoughtful presents.  This year's "theme" was heart healthy, so one of my presents was a new work out shirt.  I have really been trying to make working out a priority and fun work out clothes make it easier to keep on track.



Valentine's Day flowers.  I came home from the gym last night to these gorgeous flowers.  Having fresh flowers always spruce up a space, especially when they are a sweet, thoughtful gift!

President's Day!  My company started recognizing President's Day as a holiday last year.  I am still not used to it.  I kept forgetting we had a day off this month.  It was like a neat surprise over and over again, each time I remembered!  Hope those of you that are also off, enjoy the long weekend!

Linking up with AndreaApril and Amanda.

    And Google - yes, what did we do without it?! I probably use google at least 10-20 times a day. Maybe more! That's crazy.
