Friday Favorites

I'm excited to share my FAVORITE moments of the week with you today.  I'm switching up the format this week and sharing all of my favorite moments of the week.  It was a good one :)

The weather has been perfect in Indiana.  Fall is my FAVORITE.  We're wearing long sleeves and layers - hooray!!  Aren't the cornfields pretty??  I don't know if I ever would have said that growing up, but after living away from the Midwest for 10+ years I can definitely say they're a beautiful sight!

My FAVORITE way to eat veggies is in a salad.  I have been eating salads every day for lunch and I look forward to making myself a big salad when I put the baby down for a nap each day.  I'm working hard to take care of myself so that I can take good care of my family.

 Shopping by myself is my FAVORITE.  My husband was home with the kids and he sent me out of the house for a few hours.  I managed to capture some of my favorites in one picture... peplum, Kate Spade, TJ Maxx, black skinny jeans and stripes.  I also got some Christmas shopping done on this trip. 

 Decorating for the holidays is my FAVORITE.  We decorated for Halloween this week and it was fun to see my toddler get so excited to see the jack-o-lanterns pop up everywhere.  We're celebrating baby's 1st Halloween so it was exciting to introduce pumpkins to Fletcher.  He's a fan :)

My FAVORITE nail polish for Fall is this shade of olive green called Uh Oh Roll Down the Window by OPI.  It's a great shade of green that doesn't look witchy at all.  It's the perfect neutral for Fall nails.

My FAVORITE pumpkin recipe of the week is my Pumpkin Swirl French Toast that I shared earlier this week.  So easy and so yummy!

My FAVORITE dinosaur's name is Fletcher.  I want him to wear this spiky hoodie every day.

Our FAVORITE donuts in town are from Square Donuts and these cake donuts with tons of sprinkles are our go to treat.  Olive asks to stop in there anytime we drive by them downtown.

I did not take monthly pictures of Olive in the same spot and I sure wish I had!  I love taking Fletcher's pictures and can't believe he's 6 months old already.  Seeing him smile is my FAVORITE.  We also had his 6 month photo shoot done this week and I can't wait to get the proofs back.  He looked so handsome!

 Notre Dame is my FAVORITE team, but watching them play this season has not been a highlight.  They're not doing great so we are focusing on eating delicious food while we watch them lose.  Maybe they'll turn things around :)  In the meantime, these homemade WAFFLES were my favorite game day food of the week.  I sprinkled mini chocolate chips and powdered sugar on mine.

 Seeing the leaves start to change is my FAVORITE.  So far we've got a bright yellow tree in our front yard and it looks like our backyard trees are going to go red.  It's our first fall in our house so I can't wait to see how things change.

What was your FAVORITE part of the week??

I hope you have a really great weekend!!


  1. I'm so jealous of your cool weather! And I love your peplum top pictured above! I can't do a full peplum top but I think I could wear the kind you had on! Where did you get it?

  2. Oh shopping alone is marvelous! And I love the green polish! Green is such a hard color. I love it but I always worry that it will look too much like fungus or something but that's an awesome shade that you have on! Have a great weekend!

  3. I love shopping by myself too. I always feel pressured when I take someone with me. I just want to stay in a store as long as I want lol

  8. I was just at TJ Maxx shopping for Christmas too - I just have to remember I bought it come Christmas :) - and shopping alone is awesome

  9. That nail Polish is so pretty! If only I still painted my nails often enough. I love that shade of green, plus the name just does me in lol :)

  10. Shopping alone is the best, right?! I am loving that polish too. We keep going from really cool to really warm around here. It is kind of driving me crazy.

  11. I loveeee shopping alone! And I bought the cinnamon swirl bread!
