Friday Favorites: Finals Week :(

This week has been long! I had one final exam Wednesday and one yesterday evening, so my days have been full of nothing but studying! Here are a few of my favorite things from this week...

1. Hot Chocolate in a Christmas mug with extra Marshmallows to get through studying. After 6 hours of studying on Monday I needed something sweet to lift my spirits, especially because I was nowhere near done and my dining room table looked like this...
2. ...while I was studying for one of my finals! There was a lot going on but I realized after I took this picture that even though finals are stressful, I have so much to be grateful for. I am so lucky to be able to read, write and learn, have access to so many materials - my computer, my pens, pencils... So even though this week was long and tiring, it was still full of good things!
3. Hairspray Live - I haven't watched the entire show yet, because - finals :( But I have no doubt that it was amazing and I am so excited it with my family this weekend!!
4. I made cinnamon buns this week & they were DELICIOUS!! You can find the recipe HERE. I am dreaming about these & wishing I was eating them instead of studying for finals!

5. My family is going to get our Christmas tree this weekend! This is a little tradition that we started last year and I am so excited to go find our tree! I will be sure to fill you in next week and share a little Christmas house tour! :)
