It’s time to link up with Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites!

Favorite number one is that it’s FRIDAY! Fridays are hitting really great right now, you know?

For my other favorites, let’s start with some new stuff…

I have really fine hair, but lots of it, you know? I think this is what has led to some major tangles as my hair has gotten longer.

This smells amazing and works for me! I just searched Amazon and picked something with a good price point.

I got a new fanny pack. I saw this on Kelly Stamps on IG and the price was right. I think I’m really going to like it. It holds triple the amount of the Lulu belt bag that I have and it sits in a better spot on me.

I had a lot of fun on Sunday and Monday…

Sunday we went to the punkin’ chunkin’ where they catapult a pumpkin towards a target in the river. This is a breast cancer charity event.

I got to tour a sweet boat that is for sale. We went by car because sponsors paid a lot of money for these boat parking spots and there would be no boat parking for us.

Isn’t that nice? I could live on that boat!

Hanging out and chatting…the weather was divine!

Tom wanted some jerk wings…

Then, on Monday night my friend’s husband pulled off a surprise dinner for her 50th birthday. She had been to her college daughter’s parents weekend on her actual birthday the day before so she didn’t suspect anything. It was so fun to surprise her!

I split a caprese salad – yum!

And, I got halibut.

Here’s a picture of us when we first met in 1990!

Maybe this is why I’m so tired today? I did a lot at the beginning of the week!

Another favorite was that my college kids were home until Tuesday after dinner. We had a nice dinner together Tuesday night and then watched the new season of Derry Girls. I think they enjoyed sleeping at home and just having some down time. They have been super busy since August.

Some meals I have had lately have been a favorite…

Greek bowls:

I included Cut Da Carb “pita” chips and hummus.

A take out salad from Waldo’s Chicken and Beer:

Lunch of chili:

Burrito Bowls:

Erica’s Slender Kitchen Indian food this week:

The weather has been chilly this week! We are warming up, though. Wednesday after school it felt great in the sun. Taking the time to get that vitamin D and read for a bit is still a goal of mine.

What have been your faves this week?

  1. I am so excited it’s Friday too! The weeks have been feeling quite long lately. That boat looks lovely; I can see why you would be perfectly happy living on it. That birthday surprise sounds so fun.


  2. I love the outfits you shared on Sunday and Monday- and both of those outings sounded so fun! All the food looked amazing too. I had something new for dinner last night…I wish I’d taken a picture, but I was too hungry. It’s called Barratta? I think that’s how you spell it, but it was little pieces of toast with fresh homemade mozzarella cheese, tomatoes and arugula salad mix drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. It was amazing! I know you’re so glad that it’s Friday- I hope you get lots of outside reading time this weekend!


    1. Thank you – I will include them in Fashion Files this Thursday. I am trying to say yes, as you know, and it really has made the empty nester life more fun. Tom would be fine to stay home every night, but he goes with the flow. I think the burrata pertains to the cheese. That sounds amazing! Thank you and I hope you come home with fresh eyes and appreciation for your town, job, home, etc. I know you are ready!


  3. That boat looks fabulous. I think I could live on it too. I love all the photos of you and your friends. Y’all look fabulous. The throwback pic is awesome. I hope you have a great weekend 🙂


  4. Hi Amy. All of your meals look delicious. I’m going to try and copy your Greek bowl. You use cauliflower rice, right? You look great in the boat tour pics. I love your blouse. Wishing you another fun-packed weekend.


    1. Thank you! I use cauliflower rice, yes. I only use frozen and I let it thaw and get most of the water out. Then I really cook it in a skillet and let it get golden. I add salt, pepper, garlic, and a bit of olive oil. It really helps the flavor.
      Thank you and I hope you like it!


  5. “Sweet boat” – ha ha! Yeah, I could live on that too! 😀
    I love your week, you always do so much fun stuff! And your food looks delish!
    One fave is of course reading, I’m in the middle och Verity by Colleen Hoover, have you read anything from her? It’s really good! And her It ends with us was of course also great. Enjoy your weekend! I have one more week until fall break… ❤
