Friday Favorites!


This has been a sleepy week with our recent travels and events. I am looking forward to time off to relax and catch my breath. This week has really dragged on but the Thanksgiving holiday in the near future helps everything along! 

Once again thank you Andrea, Narci, and Erika for hosting!

First up would be a recap of the two weddings we attended this past weekend! Both weddings were so filled with love and so much fun. The first was the wedding of one of my sister's best childhood friends and was held on her parents' ranch. It was BEAUTIFUL. The second wedding we attended was up north in Ontario and held in a renovated old church- also SO gorgeous. The brides looked stunning, I cried at both (I can't control myself at weddings) and fun was had by all! The hubs and I both realized we might be getting a little old for the 2:30 am partying lifestyle though! #oops #nokidsyet






Secondly, I need help with car suggestions! We are on the search for a new car:) We are looking for an SUV this go around because soon we hope to fill it with sweet little bundle(s) of joy. Any suggestions would be so helpful!




Next up, my sweet in-laws are back in town for the wintertime and I made the below receipe for their first dinner in town. #wearesolucky It was delicious!!

4. After realizing my first of choice earrings would not be arriving in time for our out of town wedding I quickly ran into Francesca's after getting my hair done (conveniently located right next door) and found these beautiful (but heavy!) replacement earrings. They looked awesome with my dress and bracelet! #crisisaverted



5. My last favorite for the week would have to be my genuine excitement that the holiday season is upon us. Not only is Thanksgiving less than a week away but I am officially allowed to purchase a Christmas tree and fully decorate our home in one week. #hubsrule #allofthefeelings #falala #iheartchristmas I am so excited for the parties, dressing up, the family and friends, the gift giving, the shopping, and the smell of pine!




                        I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for reading!

Friday Favorites!

 YAY for Friday! I am so excited for the next few days that I cannot even stand it. We are off to visit family in Canada and join in on some wedding festivities! In fact, we have one wedding today and then we are flying (#eekkk #terrified) out tomorrow morning for another one. I am really looking forward to spending time with all of my in-laws and dancing the night away. Plus, I get to dress up and get to see my husband in a suit. #myfavoritepasstime

As always, thank you for hosting Andrea, Erika, and Narci.

To start off my favorite's list, I would have to say a big bonus this week was having my meals delivered by "Hello Fresh"- FO FREE. A colleague of mine provided me with a coupon for a trial run of this service. I have to admit, the entire concept is really cool. It is a huge plus to have everything portioned out and ready in your fridge. Unfortunately, for us, it wouldn't be worth the weekly fee and I genuinely like cooking and meal planning, especially when the hubs and I do it together. Another side note, the portions are on the smaller side and leave little to no leftovers. All that being said, I would not turn down another crack at it, especially on those nights that you just can't get it together. #happensalot





Next up, would be my recent Old Navy purchases! I love the leggings I got on sale and the second they arrived I threw them on and wore them to my Supper Club. They are very comfy and look super cute. I am also really looking forward to wearing this V-neck sweater (in Lichen It) in the chillier temps this weekend:) 



With the weddings this weekend a girl has to accessorize. SO of course, I turned to my new go-to online store, Accessory Concierge for some bling to class up my new dress (from Francesca's). The bummer is that I do not think I timed the order correctly...and I will be cutting it super close for the earrings to arrive before we depart for the airport. #bigboo # sayalittleprayerforme


                                           



Lastly, I wanted to share a fun recent outing we did for a friend's birthday, The Great Escape Room.  It was WAY more fun than I had expected. They lock you in a room, as a group, and let you loose on the clues that are stashed all around to solve the puzzle to be able to escape. All of this is happening while a clock ticks down from an hour...and suspense music is playing. Something this experience taught me about myself is that I am intense and very serious under pressure. We were VERY close to solving it...but we ran out of time and were not able to escape on our own. This did not bode well for the competitive spirits in our group, but none the less, fun was had and a memory was made:) #nexttime



Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a great weekend! I hate the flying part of visits so I will take this opportunity to ask each of you to say a little prayer that we arrive and make it home safe and sound!

Friday Favorites!


November is here! How did that happen?!?!? Wasn't it just July 4th?? As time is flying by so quickly I cannot help but get very excited for what 2017 will have in store for our lives. This week was filled with a lot of thoughts like that which made it a happy one! As always, I am excited for the weekend and enjoy some time off with my loves.

Thank you for the link up Andrea, Narci and Erika!

First up this week I have to give a shout out to my recent discovery of Grey Monroe. I feel like this was a secret that was kept from me #iwanttoblamethehubs. The store is SO CUTE and affordable #myfavoritecombo

How cute is my recent purchase??!! I cannot wait to dress this up and down. #LOVE

Gotta love a Fold Over Leopard Clutch!

Second, and third, favorites for this week would have to be my continuing love affair with Accessory Concierge. This company has the FASTEST delivery and are constantly having sales that leave you adding just one more thing into your cart!

love this bracelet!

#obsessedwiththisthang 

Next up is having to share this awesome gift idea for any ladies in your life (or a just a #HappyDay treat for yourself). This deal is too good to pass up! #theholidaysarecoming

 

But be sure to check out the other cute combos!



Finally, I have to give a shout out to Mix and Match Mama because I made her Pumpkin Spice Latte Bundt Cake this weekend and it was the bomb. I cannot wait to bring it for Thanksgiving dinner and have even more people fall in love with it! I wish I had a photo of the cake I recently took to a party but..... on the way there the cake slipped off the stand and fell all over my purse and the car seat. It was not my finest (or most mature) moment when I may have shed tear over this. However, I was informed, the lack of presentation did not affect the quality of the taste! YAY! It was a win and will be re-bake for me!

                           
         Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a beautiful and relaxing weekend!
