Oh Friday, I thought you would never get here! I am linking up today with Andrea, etc. right here.

I use Friday Favorites as a time to look through my camera roll from the week and see what made me smile. I hope you had lots this week, too!

The fall colors continue to amaze me and I know they won’t stick around much longer, sadly. I feel a sense of urgency to get outside as much as I can.

I even love the look of fallen leaves!

I am still learning how to use my new air fryer, but I think I really like it! I have hardly used my oven this week.

I will try to do a detailed review and recipes when I can. I am still so new!

We have had some yummy soups not made in the air fryer this week for lunch. I did white chicken chili one day…

and Erica did an Olive Garden zuppa tuscano copycat light version. They were both delicious and we both love soups.

I only bought one thing last weekend with my mom and sisters but I love what I bought…

these cool bar earrings.

One morning this week I was making my coffee and getting ready to sit in my chair and look who took my spot!

A favorite picture from last weekend…

It’s rare when we get photos of the three of us as adults and we have gotten some sweet comments on Facebook.

I really like having a dressier option in booties and I had worked hard to apply my self tanner in advance… ha!

The murals that are so popular everywhere are just so fun! My sister took this last weekend.

I am wanting a colorful sneaker that is more of a running shoe style. I like my flat ones but I think the lift will be more flattering. I have my eye on these…

I can’t wait for Ernie to start his advent calendar. This is what happens in the empty nest; your dog gets the attention the kids used to!

I plan to do a TJ’s run this weekend. I have a few necessities to get and I want to see the seasonal things like these – if they are out…

You learn quickly to get these items while you can!

I finished this and really recommend it!

I started this…

And these are on deck…

Love my new Swig cow cup and this would be a great gift.

Last winter we bought this UGG brand comforter at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and I love it. It is so cozy. We actually kept it on over the summer, too.

The highlight of my week was meeting up with a former student who is now 36! We went to a tapas restaurant and

It was so much fun. Allison also became my baby and dog sitter eventually; she was my student the year I got pregnant and remembers my pregnancy announcement. I cannot tell you the joy I get from keeping in touch with former students – it truly is one of the best parts of the job.

What were your favorites?

I am not sure how much I will post next week. I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving with your loved ones, just in case!

  1. What a great week you’ve had. The ugg comforter looks so cozy! I want to stop in TJ to see if they have those candles. I saw that advent calendar and almost got one for Homer. Maybe I should have! I love the sister pic! I hope you have a great weekend!


  2. Love the sneakers you have an eye on! We had a super busy week….Sunday to the beach house to empty 2 guest rooms….refreshing with new carpet and paint. I took SO MUCH STUFF to the goodwill and my house just feels lighter. I love it. Came home Tuesday to bake Taylors birthday pie! She turned 29 on Wednesday and we also moved her into her first HOME! She is so proud and we are so excited and proud of her too. Thursday back to the beach house to see the painting and new carpet and move it all back in! Took our oldest to breakfast and got to see her new house that she built with her husband! YES 2 new homes for both daughters this month. Christmas will be gift cards and money from us to them so the can pick out new items! Home now are recuperating from a super busy, somewhat stressful! Week! haha! Happy Thanksgiving!


    1. Thanks! I haven’t pulled the trigger yet because I do have black New Balance!
      That sounds amazing! I need to take stuff, too. You get S**t done, girl! I love it! Two new houses for your girls is so amazing! You should feel so proud that you got them to the successful women they are! That makes Christmas super easy!
      Happy Turkey Day to you and yours!


      1. I need to be more like you! I think it’s my job that keeps me from being as productive as I would like. I don’t know how/why I accumulate so much stuff and I’m better than many people!
