Friday Best -- First of 2018

Jan 5, 2018

When I typed that title, I accidentally put "2017" anyone else still doing that? This week flew by, as any "short-week-return-from-holiday-break would be expected to... It still feels like Thursday and I feel like my to-do's are only partially tackled..but alas, hey weekend! This weekend I have the last of my Christmas gatherings for my Dad's side. I love when the season extends and I'm looking forward to family time. Other than that I'll likely be staying close to home as it's supposed to be cold and have a wintery mix. Now let's get on to some bests for the week..In 2017, these Friday posts shifted from Weekly Bits to Friday Bests & that format is here to stay in 2018.

Best January plans
a family Christmas / bridesmaid dress shopping with my cousin / a babysitting gig for my cute little cousins / our trip to CO for the National Western Stock Show / a wood board painting night

best new inspiration
how cute is this blogger? I stumbled on her site through Pinterest...I want to work my closet a bit more in 2018, and I think I'll be using some of these outfits for inspo.

best upcoming plan / experience
last night the Cattleman and I decided to head to Pere Marquette Lodge as our Valentine's gift to each other. We were supposed to go last year but the flooding changed the plans, so we are going to go for a cabin stay this year (likely March) and explore around.

best pins
since our engagement I've been gathering some inspiration for wedding decor and elements..I haven't gotten too far, but I know emerald will be our main color. I also have started to gather engagement picture ideas as that will likely be happening this month or next.

best Friday outfit details 
I have on my new Nickel & Suede leather earrings and love them. I usually don't wear earrings often because they get hidden in my thick hair, but these bold + lightweight ones are a game I am wanting more! I also treated myself to this new lipcolor that I'll be wearing to happy hour tonight (feels too bold for the office).

best weekly finds
