Happy Friday! Are you planning to do something tonight even if you are exhausted? Check out my post here for some inspiration – I hope! I talked about why you should go out on a Friday and what it can do for your weekend. Will I take my own advice? You’ll find out on Monday!
I’m linking up with Andrea, etc. for Friday Favorites today.
Number One: It happens every year, but as soon as school starts, I get in the mood for fall. I’m excited to fill my house with Bath and Body fall scents. I am going to try to have my coupons with me when I go in a few weeks. Did you get the recent mailer they sent out?
Number Two: I don’t usually buy things at the beginning of the season – I wait for sales, but I was excited to look at fall clothes in some catalogs I got this week. Love the outfit below. I’m planning some fall fashion posts coming up soon. I’m ready to see my old friends – my fall clothing!
Number Three: Having a meal plan and following it to the letter until Thursday night this week was wonderful. It really saved me this week. I had all of the ingredients and at 5:30, I just followed the plan. Thursday night I did hot subs again with loaded baked potatoes. I click listed in the morning and picked up a small load of groceries after school at 3:00. You guys, if this is a busy season of life for you, too, please meal plan and do grocery pick up. It is so absolutely wonderful!
Number Four: We had some spectacular weather this week so I made time to sit outside for a bit after school.
Number Five: I was excited to get library notification that this book is in for me. My library is closed on Fridays so I will put library on my list for Saturday. Just a note about reading. I make time for reading during the school year. I’m almost to the point where I’m more organized and using time more efficiently at school, so I will be working less at home on school stuff. I can’t be a good teacher if I don’t do things for myself after school and on weekends.
Number Six: Yes, I’m confusing. I was just talking about fall clothing, but look at this top below. I was looking for something with cacti all summer long and I was searching fall fashion on Amazon and this came up. It must be a sign. I placed an order and want to wear it to an outdoor concert Saturday night. I figured I could get a few wears in this year. I’m hoping I chose the size correctly after reading reviews. I plan to wear it on my shoulders and saw a picture of it worn that way, too. I will be sure to report back. It was $17.
Number Seven: Back to fall, I love this type of top. I have one that is a cocoa color from last year. I wore it a ton! I am not buying fall clothing yet. I plan to inventory what I have and make a wish list and maybe do a capsule wardrobe for fall.
Number EIght: Speaking of wish lists, I would love to pull off a hat like this in the fall. Where will I wear it? Frolicking through a pumpkin patch, wine tasting, at a polo match like on Southern Charm? Does my real life allow for a hat like this? One can dream!
See my Pinterest inspiration below?
This is probably what I would end up looking like! Haha! No offense meant toward Red Hat Society ladies!
Lastly: I’m ready to bring out the fall foods! This is a great little cookbook that I got at a garage sale. I’m bummed that I missed a big used book sale last weekend! I still love cookbooks. In September I like to break out the apple recipes, including my apple sangria. In October I like to break out the pumpkin recipes. And, in December I do a lot of chocolate peppermint coffee drinks. It’s so fun to change with the seasons, in my opinion.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! What are your plans? As I mentioned, I’m hoping to do an outdoor concert Saturday night and then some shopping Saturday day or maybe Friday for my Friday activity, and a boat ride on Sunday maybe? I still need to do that boat brunch with mimosas! Leave me a comment! I love reading what you have to say!
