Friday Finds :: Pinterest Faves

Happy Friday! Holy cow, did this last week seem to fly by or what?! I’ve been busy decking the halls, wrapping gifts and checking off the gift lists for loved ones.  Even though I didn’t find time to blog, I still visited one of my favorite sites for inspiration: Pinterest. Here are a few of the most popular pins in the last few weeks:

advent calendar 2015 // via @simplifiedbeeHappy December! The first day of the month is always exciting for me, but I’m especially loving this first day of December. It marks the beginning of advent. A count down to Christmas Day. Advent calendars have been a family tradition that I’ve passed down to my own family. This year we even have two advent calendars – one that hangs on the wall that doesn’t have any treats and another my girls talked me into getting at Starbucks  seen above (I’m such a sucker!). Here are some other fun advent calendars to buy or make!
