Friday Favorites

It is Friday and I am off today since it is Nevada Day. We may not get Columbus Day off, but we get to celebrate our great state today. Plus I need it after traveling all last week, the last two days and then again on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Phew.

Let's get down to my favorites this week.

ONE. Do you like caramels? I know I do. There is something about them. I really got into them when I was pregnant with the girls. I would often go into a candy store and get those scotch kisses (caramel with marshmallows). I would seek them out. And don't get me started on chocolate covered caramels with sea salt. Yum.

I have been following Sweet Thing Caramels on Instagram for quite awhile now. So when I decided to do a collaboration with them, I felt like I was counting down the days until my box of goodness would arrive.

I got a box of pumpkin spice caramels, chocolate caramels and coconut cream caramels. I have tried them all and love them soooo much. They are smooth, perfectly chewy, they do not stick to your teeth and are not overly sweet. My favorite flavor was the coconut cream. Nothing beats coconut and this one is a dream. They are all gone.

These are perfect for a Christmas gift.

TWO. I was also recently contacted about trying some Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and I thought why not. I love tea tree oil for cuts, pimples and all healing, so I thought it would be great for my hair. The shampoo is supposed to help prevent hair loss and breakage, help your hair grow faster and be amazing for your scalp. I have been using it for about a month now and I love it. I don't use it daily, but I feel like it is a great option for your hair at least weekly to a couple times per week. It is currently on sale, here, for $8.95. You can also try it for free (samples) HERE.

THREE. I know this is news that came out last weekend, but I never got to write about it or talk about it. Justin Timberlake  is playing the Super Bowl half time show. I am beyond excited about this. We all know how much I adore J.T. (ie I have stalked him out at the Celebrity Golf Tournament in Lake Tahoe for the last few years) and how much I love football.

Usually I am not impressed by the half time show, so I am super pumped for this one. And let's face it, my Niners are going nowhere near the Super Bowl, so I will be all about the commercials and the half time show.

FOUR. I am soooo wanting this cute top for work and play. It is a beautiful green and would be perfect for the holidays. The price kind of sucks, but does anyone have this shirt and can vouch for it?

FIVE. We are at it again. We booked our flights this week to go to Mexico next year. This time we will not have the girls with us. Just a trip with Rory and myself. I seriously am so excited for this. A week away. Yes, we go to Puerto Vallarta almost yearly, but when you have easy accommodations, many flight miles and grandparents who are willing to take care of your children, you go. I can't wait to start planning it out more. We have the ability to go on more adventures this time. Viva la Mexico!!!

I am linking up with April, A Little Bit of Everything, Meet @ the Barre and Cup of Tea.
