Friday Favorites

Boy does it feel good to see Friday! I don't know why but for some reason I was so thrown off this week. I may or may not have woken up on two different days thinking it was already Friday. I even tried to convince Eric one morning it was already Friday and that we reached the coveted weekend starting line. Talk about confusing the poor guy. What is wrong with me? Clearly I had some major wishful thinking going on.

Confusion aside, we made it! Now we're all on the same page as to what day it is. We have a pretty low key weekend planned but of course we're incorporating some more fall fun. One of the best couples I know is having their annual pumpkin carving get together, BYOP. We love getting the kids together every year and seeing everyone's creative side come out. I'll try to remember to take some pics so I can share them next week. For now, here's a look at some of my favorites from this week...

1. First key framed: I got this idea several months ago, ok maybe more like 5 months ago but who's counting. Anyway, I always knew when we sold our first home I was going to keep one of the keys to our front door (I'm such a rebel). At first I thought about removing a floor plank to do some sort of reclaimed project, then I thought about taking a window panel with me, but the more I thought about all of that the key to the front door was the more practical option. 

After finally coming across my glue gun from one of the 200 boxes I decided putting it on some decorative paper and framing it was the perfect place for this little key. It's a nice little keepsake and brings back so many great memories. It reminds me of all the adventures we had there, the opportunities it opened up for us, and our one day dream house to come.

2. Fall outerwear: I shared my military jacket find {read more here} and I've been loving this perfect piece for fall. The weather here has been so up and down. We had some 80 degree days this week, which I'm not complaining about, but those cool mornings and evenings you need a little something to put on and this has been my go to jacket.

3. Favorite purchase: I got sucked in and ended up purchasing all three Loreal Pure-Clay Masks. I can't say I'm upset about it though. Do I need all three? Well that's still to be determined. A few places I went to were actually sold out of them so when I came across them at Harmon and was able to use a 20% off coupon, I scooped them up like they were flying off the shelf.

Since I just got them this week I can't speak for all of them just yet. I've really been liking the exfoliating and pore refining one (the pinkish one). Ha! I think I scared Eric though because when I have it on he says it looks like I have bad sunburn. We both can't put our finger on the scent either. It's not a bad scent but reminds us of something we just can't pinpoint.

4. Fall soups: I am such a seasonal eater sometimes that there are certain things I can't eat during the year if the weather isn't right. Is anyone else like that? Like hot chocolate, I love it but just can't do it in the summer. Ice cream, well most people probably won't agree with me here but I just can't get into a cone in the winter. Soup, now soup just tastes so much better in the fall.

I'm dying to try {this} Autumn Minestrone soup out. I was just talking about how I've never attempted making a minestrone soup so this one is a definite must try.

5. Family hike: in case you missed it {read more here} we enjoyed a fun family hike that I really wish we had more time to get out and do. A lot of you asked questions about my hiking outfit and really seemed to like it, thank you so much for that! I decided to include some links so you can check it out and decide if any of the pieces are right for you. 


I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm so thankful to be featured on the H54F linkup this week. These ladies are awesome and so much fun to link with. Check them out and all of the other great places to link up for Friday fun.
