Happy Friday!!! 

I have FIVE Favorites today & a free printable!

Today was the last Friday of school & now it's Christmas Break!!!
This was me all week:
#thestruggleisreal

Memes & Someecards are my favorite...these ones are just so true:

 



{ONE}

Full House was my FAVORITE as a kid! 
I am WAY too excited about Fuller House.
I may or may not have teared up when I saw the trailer last night.


Being born & raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I especially love this show because it is based in SF. Earlier this year, we played "tourist" in SF and checked out the Full House house.
(The house has been repainted since the show last aired 20 years ago in 1995, it is much darker now!)
 Full House was my FAVORITE show growing up. One of the reasons it was my favorite show is because it was based in San Francisco and because it was a family of 3 girls, just like me & my sisters. I can't WAIT for the Fuller House show that is coming out in February! So excited!

{TWO}
Rodan + Fields Eye Cream is my Favorite!
I know that some of you missed out on my last bulk order, so I am going to place ANOTHER bulk order on December 31st!
I started using the eye cream right after Luke was born and WOW, it got rid of the bags under my eyes that I had from lack of sleep with a newborn. 

Our  Multi-Function Eye Cream combines powerful peptides to minimize the appearance of crow’s-feet, helps reduce the appearance of both puffiness and dark under eye circles while special optical diffusers noticeably brighten the eye area.
Ophthalmologist tested, this formula is ideal for maintaining the delicate skin around the eyes.  

This brave consultant only used the eye cream on one eye for 3 weeks!
It's less puffy & she doesn't have bags under that eye!

I will be placing a BULK order of our amazing eye cream December 31st.
For my bulk order, you can get it with my discount and it will only cost you $58 and I will cover your tax & shipping!
One jar lasts me at least 4-5 months.
Let me know if you want to order one! Leave a comment with your email or email me: melissa_larson17@yahoo.com

San Francisco during Christmas is my favorite...I love seeing all the decorations!
My sister's work has a Christmas party in SF every year at the Embarcaderro Ice Skating Rink...they shut it down just for the clients. It's so fun. San Francisco's Christmas decorations are so pretty this year:












{FOUR}
Random Acts of Kindness are my favorite....especially during the Holiday Season.
Yesterday I posted about Blessing Bags. 
You can read the full post about them {HERE}

Last night we headed to San Francisco for my sister's work party & we brought our blessing bags to hand out to the homeless. I was so incredibly proud of my girls, they were more excited about handing out the blessing bags than they were to go ice skating.  I told them that I would hand the bags out, but Claire insisted that she be the one to hand it to them. They weren't scared of the homeless people they saw & they were brave and handed them the blessing bag with a smile on their faces & wished them a Merry Christmas. All of the people were so incredibly thankful and one of them said  "I never get Christmas presents, this is so exciting! God Bless You!" 
 
I highly encourage you to make these bags....they truly bless people!

Another Random Act of Kindness that I started doing this year is taping this note to my front door along with Starbucks Gift Cards.

 I don't know about you, but I do 99% of my Christmas shopping online. This is what I have taped on our front door as a way to say thank you to our fed ex, ups & usps workers who are working so hard this time of year:

I posted that photo on Instagram & one of my friends texted me asking if I could email her the graphic that I made, so I decided to just make it a printable for all of you as well! 
 You can sign or write in your own last name :)
{To download, Click so the image pops up in a new window, Right Click, Then Save & Print!}

We had 2 packages delivered today & 2 gift cards were taken. I was so excited!
 
{FIVE} 
This base coat & top coat are my new favorite!!!
You can get them {HERE}
I have been searching high and low for a top coat that helps with chipping. 
I have finally found one!!! 
I have used steps 1 & 3 the past 2 weeks and my nails don't chip for 5-6 days!
You don't need to use the Step 2 polish...I have used other brands and it still works great.
I will be using step 1 & 3 from now on, no matte what polish I use! 
So happy to have found something that works! Yay!

So, there you have it...5 of my favorites!
I hope you have a wonderful Winter Break.
This is me right now...
{Love these pj bottoms! If you are tall like me...5'9, they are long enough!!! YES! And, super cozy flannel. Get them HERE}

If you need me this weekend, I'll be here in my pj's...staring at my Christmas tree, drinking wine (or coffee) enjoying the rain falling outside, listening to Christmas music or watching Hallmark Christmas movies. Can I get an amen for no plans this weekend & 2 weeks off school? I have a house cleaner come once a month & she came today, so my house is clean for at least a few hours!Merry Christmas, indeed!

 Hope you have a great weekend!

  1. YOu are such an inspiring kind person!!! My Dad is a UPS driver, and I worked there in college and they work so hard during this time of year. Many years my Dad wouldn't be home on Christmas Eve until our bedtime.. they sacrifice so much to bring Christmas to other families. Every little kindness means so much. Thank you for thinking of the service people who help pull off Christmas!

  2. I've never commented on your blog before, but I am really inspired by your acts of kindness. It's truly awesome how much you think about other people during the holiday season. Thanks for being such a good example of God's love.
