Friday Faves

Okay so today is not only a Friday but the last weekday of the month and February is almost here y'all!!!!  I'm combining my Friday faves with a new linkup I'm joining called 4x4 which is basically my 4 favorite blog posts, pinterst pins, instagram posts and friends (or friend in your head) posts for the month.

Here we go peeps!

My 4 favorite blog posts

Imperial Palace and the Emperor's New Year Greeting  Visiting the Imperial Palace was a once in a lifetime opportunity (well twice a year opportunity really) and I am so glad that after only being here for a week or so we had the opportunity to be a part of it

Hey! We're your new neighbors! The new neighbor gifts were my favorite thing to do this month. All of my neighbors really appreciated the effort and reached out to us! I'm glad that I was able to find so many awesome ideas

10 on 10 :: January 2015 This will always make the list because it forces me to slow down and smell the roses

New Friends, Birthdays and Double Dates because it was our first kid free date night and we got our Japanese car!

My 4 favorite Instagram posts

If you aren't following me on Instagram yet you should be! You're totally missing out on some cute kiddo posts, the beginning of my crafts posts, some husband and wife "usies" and a bunch more totally cool random pictures of my life that I post

My 4 favorite Pinterest pins
This month on pinterest for me is all about Valentine's day decorations and Home décor!

My 4 favorite friends posts

toddler talks | at least they're honest by Kelsey at Pardon my French was hilarious because 1. who doesn't love toddler conversations and 2. There is more than one conversation on this post where the word big was used to describe her and as a pregnant mama that has got to be both hilarious and annoying

We Are All Human....It Happens to All of Us was my first time reading Amanda's blog Meet @ The Barre and I literally cracked up while reading it and then read it again to Isaac when he got home because I thought that it was totally something that would happen to me. She instantly became my blogger bff in my head and I've been reading every day since

Home. by Shay at Mix and Match Family. What's better than a birth story? A heart felt adoption coming together story. I followed Shay's journey to adopt adorable Ashby London and I loved that she kept us informed every step of the way through all 18 days in China and I really loved all of her friends coming to greet them at the airport when they came back as the Shull Five! My heart was so full seeing all of the pictures of so many people ready to love on them.

Basically every single Bachelor Recap that Sheaffer from Pinterest Told me To has written this season! She is HILARIOUS and basically says exactly what I thought during the episode. I almost look forward to these more than the actual episode
