Whew! It’s Friday! I am linking up with the gals here for Friday Favorites.
It’s been a good week, though. I have been tired at the end of each day, but that is my normal.
So, here are some of my faves from the week. I hope you had many, too!
I sent my kids back to college with a Trader Joe’s 99cent chocolate advent calendar. They chuckled. I don’t think I had gotten them one the last two years of college. I always get them for all my nieces and nephews and give them to them at Thanksgiving. I got the guitar version especially for Jack who plays guitar.
We actually had a Tuesday night outing. Tom and I got to hear the jazz ensemble that Jack is a part of. He is playing electric guitar for this group. Mason was able to slip away and join us, as well. He was in the middle of writing a paper, but came anyway. Again, it’s nice to be able to do something like watch a Tuesday concert. Jack is on the far left with the guitar. His professor is next to him on stage and played with the group and seems really enthusiastic. We noticed one of Jack’s other music professors in the audience supporting this group. Small colleges, you all. Don’t discount them. My kids are going for cheaper than a state school and I know without a shadow of a doubt that their professors know them. Small was the way to go for us. I also attended a small liberal arts college so I guess I have a bias.
I need some new black tights! Anyone got a recommendation? Actually, I haven’t even looked to see what state mine are in, but I thought I would check. How cute is this outfit?
I picked up a $10 blanket for my couch at Target. I am enjoying it!
Who is ready for Emily in Paris? We only have to wait until December 21st!
I love my holiday plates from Target many years ago. I have the Santa,
and the reindeer and I think I have 10 plates total.
Let’s talk food from the week. I made a shepherd’s pie that is Erica’s recipe. I used double beef broth because I don’t have any beer and I added some tomato paste to make it more tomatoey. You all, this is so good! Tom approved, too!
Erica made my favorite meal of the week – beef bulgogi bowls. Wow!
I am enjoying watching the squirrels eating my pumpkin!
Fashion Files was yesterday, but here is my Thursday outfit. I love this bright sweater.
I really love this Gucci stripe sweater look and I ordered a similar one from Amazon.
We will see if it fits. I went down a size to get it quicker. One size would have been here January 14 and another size on Monday!
I am re-instating Soup Sundays! I am really excited to make skinny lasagna soup this Sunday. I’m going to add spinach and zucchini to boost the vegetables.
So, what were your favorites this week? I would love to know!
