On Friday Faves....

Oh man I can't tell you how excited I am that it is Friday! Finally. I am still sick but I think I have made it past the worst of it. So for some of my faves...

- New Perfume 
I got some new perfume for Xmas and I am loving it. I wanted to try something I hadn't tried before so glad it worked out! 
I smell so nice :) 

- Three Kings Day aka Epiphany 
We always do a little dinner at my parents for 3 Kings Day and my dad tells the story to my nephew and we eat Rosca De Reyes and hot chocolate.  It's all very hispanic. So they put a little baby jesus in the bread, sometimes more than one, and the person(s) who get it are supposed to host a party on February 2nd- Dia de la Candelaria. Guess who got the baby jesus? Yep. So I will have my family over for dinner and since I do not like Tamales we will be eating something else! 

How delicious does that bread look?? 

- Books...Books...
I read The 5th Wave  this week and love loved it. Seriously I am excited for the movie although I know it won't do the book any justice I just want to be able to put a face and all that to the characters. It was a little confusing at the beginning but then it kind of works itself out. I am still not sure about the ending so I am excited to be starting the 2nd book this weekend! 

- Planner! 
My roommate bought me a cute planner for Xmas and I have already gone apeshit with it. I had to ground myself from it for a day so I could stop adding every single detail of my life into it. How does everyone else control themselves??
Looks like this one...nothing fancy but it works!! 

- Hoarding??
- After reading Stephanie from Not Entirely Perfect post 52 Week Plan to an Organized Home I decided I do actually need to declutter my life. I mean I don't have a home, I live in a small apartment but I still have things I really don't need. So I am plan to give it a shot and see what I can do!! It is hard with roommates though, I mean my one roommate saves boxes for EVERYTHING. It drives me insane. We don't have storage so all of the extra space in the apartment has suitcases and boxes for every single thing he buys. 

It feels like it looks like this but yea it definitely doesn't!

Those boxes would drive me NUTS! Though I had a bunch of empty ones in my storage area, but a friend of mine just moved over the holiday, so I was able to give them all to her! "It's all very Hispanic" hahaha. We don't do the whole traditional thing because it's only me and my mom, but we did go to see the tree in Rockefeller Center for Three Kings Day!

Happy weekend!
