Friday Favorites-9.25.20

Happy Friday!

Thank you for joining me today for FRIDAY FAVORITES!  wwAndrea and I are here to bring you a little happy and share some FAVORITES from our week!

One of my FAVORITES {and yours too} from the week was this sweater and these jeans {both on sale!!!}.  In the sweater, I'm wearing a small, which is true to size for me.  And the jeans are 27's which are true to size as well.

These pictures make me GIDDY!  After seeing Jeni's fairytale pumpkins on her front porch, I was inspired to change things up this year so yesterday I went to our local nursery to stock up.

If fall was a picture...

My FAVORITES!

Funny little story, in 2008 when Kensington Kate was born, I hosted her sip-in-see right after she was born.  The theme was pumpkins/fall so I stepped up my front porch game and decorated with hay, pumpkins, mums, you name it!  Well apparently {or at least in my mind this is how it happened} there was a stow away country mouse hanging out in that hay because right after the shower there was a MOUSE in our house!  Give me snakes, spiders, and lizards any day over a mouse.  So, back in 2008 I vowed to never again use hay to decorate for fall.

It's not quite finished, but here's a peek at it almost complete.

Britty was a FAN!

I went to Trader Joe's this week {and shared on Tuesday}.  I tried lots of new things but this oldie is my FAVORITE.  I could pretty much dip a piece of paper in this cauliflower jalapeno dip and enjoy.  I do think you have to be a cauliflower fan to like this one.  It's creamy and has a little kick...I'm SOLD!

My FAVORITE second grader.  :)

And my FAVORITE fifth grader.  :)

We added a few new Halloween books to our library...
New books are a FAVORITE!

*************************

Do you guys remember these sneakers? {Sold out now}

Well, I found them on major sale for under $62 in this orange/blue colorway and ordered them so we could take a better look.  I'm not sure if it's the socially distanced life I'm leading now or the trend, but I'm definitely on the sneaker train this season....FAVORITES!

*************************

Last week I shared some favorite Walmart home items from Drew Barrymore's line but this week I wanna feature some FAVORITES from the kids' line.

That wraps it up for today!  Thank you for reading!  I can't wait to share Marla's party with you!  Follow along on Instagram and I'll be sure to post!  Lots of you are nervous for me...hahahaha!  You should be!  😂😂😂

Have a GREAT weekend!

So many colorful and different gourds to choose from! I really don't like anything in the house that doesn't belong there-- mice, bats, etc. They all pretty much freak me out.

Thank you for hosting each week, I love to see the family updates, and as for this weeks post, I'm in love with all the pumpkins, this is totally my fav time of year and I only wish we celebrated it as much in the UK with beautiful house decorations.

Complete side note. Have you noticed since using your Peloton, the side sweep muscle on your thighs? Girl!

I totally need to get my front porch up to snuff. Now that it is almost October I'm going to get some mums for my front porch too. :) Room on the Broom is my all time favorite book. I even did a stop animation with felt pieces I made because of how much we love that book.

Jen said...

The photos from your nursery are stunning, such vibrant colors. I took a shopping trip through Amazon's fall books and sent them to my daughter for her preschool class. There were some great titles.

I love all the pumpkins. And I'm also not a big fan of mice! ;) Room on the Broom is one of our favorites. Thanks for hosting, and have a great weekend!

Oh, how I could shop from that pumpkin display. Gimme the bales of straw, the cornstalks, the pumpkins in all the colors, preferably without a rodent!!

I know that dip must be delicious. Love your description!! Made me giggle. I wish to heavens we could get an Aldis and a Trader Joe's. Good lord, you'd think El Paso, Texas was some little Podunk town.

I am a retired elementary school librarian. If your boys haven't read Wishing Tree and The One and Only Ivan, I highly recommend them. Love the bear books by Karma Wilson, picture books. Very sweet.
