Friday Faves 12.1 and Arkansas fun

Hi friends! Happy Friday! How was the week? I hope you’ve had a great one. Ours went by quickly — part of it was spent in Arkansas and then we flew back home to Tucson.

We had a wonderful time with family and enjoyed so many fun adventures.

Some highlights:

the alligator farm was a HUGE hit

a beautiful hike,

strolling around and shopping in Hot Springs,

the Christmas lights at Garvan Woodland Gardens,

and lunch at The Root.

(gf chicken salad sandwich, salad, and sweet potato fries. 10/10)

What do you have going on this weekend? It’s the squadron Christmas party and we’re going to get our Christmas tree. After being team fake tree for so many years, we switched to real a few years ago and I don’t see myself going back. They smell AMAZING.

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! This is where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.

Loving this audiobook so far, especially since I’ve been into rewatching old Friends episodes. It’s sad and comforting to hear his voice, and it was a loss this year that hit me pretty hard.

I watched Falling for Christmas on Netflix while wrapping gifts – trying to get everything done early – and I have to admit… it was great.
