Friday No. 15

1. We graduated from Financial Peace University last week! The class was incredible. It empowered us to steward our finances well and work together as a team. To learn more and find a class near you, click here.

2. We had a tree decorating marathon last weekend! We decorated the tree with Dillon’s family on Friday night, my parents on Saturday night, and our own tree on Sunday. ‘Tis the season, y’all!

3. I started my PowerSheets prep this week with the Cultivate What Matters team and am so excited to set meaningful goals for the year ahead!

4. I had a hair appointment on Wednesday and was inspired to share my favorite hair products in a post, which can be read here.

I used the Spotify year-end summary tool to see which music I listened to most this year. Country took the lead, but my listening habits are just as varied as I thought they might be. See a review of your 2017 listening here.

What are y’all up to this weekend? Share in the comments below!
