18 September 2015


It's been a glorious Week in the Hoosier State!!! Sunny with High in the 70's, low 80's, but cool nights. While it's been a great week, 2 notes of sadness related to football. On Friday night we lost our High School QB for the season; he broke his foot in several places. Then on Saturday, we lost or beloved Notre Dame QB for the season to an injury. If anybody wants to be a back up Quarter Back, let us know. LOL
Of course I managed to find some lovely favorites for you this week.

How blessed am I? Bestowed upon me in the past week are these 3 goodies 
From Hubby

You may already know we are smitten with the Mitten! Michigan and all its splendor is our jam! How cute is this sweatshirt!! So soft too. Gonna wear with some BF jeans and retro Nikes

 From Tami (T)
Our friend Sandy has been the scent model for Fall. She has been wearing the most heavenly pumpkin scented lotion and my dear friend, T, was so sweet to get some for me. Guess where you get this? Cracker Barrel! So good!!

From Mom
My mom is such a giving person. I am convinced I got my giving heart from her and often like to surprise others with treats and gifts. She surprises me and the day after I mentioned this darling owl necklace I saw at Target, she got me one! Sweetest mom on Earth!!

1 bottle of  your favorite mild white wine
1 cup caramel flavored vodka
6 cups apple cider
2 medium apples, cored and chopped
Stir the wine, vodka, and apple cider together in a large pitcher.
Add the chopped apples to the pitcher, or to individual glasses.
Serve the sangria over ice.

 I have so been debating on some leather leggings or some faux ones, but after seeing this: sheer LOVE!!

Loving these plum colors

Comfy and still kind off Summery was the goal for the week
Loft Cardigan, Eddie Bauer Dress

Target Cardigan and Top

Kohl's Top

There's Something about Fall Snacking!! While fresh fruit and cool things are a must in the Summer, Fall brings on some mighty yummy treats. Here are my faves!

*Candy Corn and Peanuts. One word: ADDICTIVE 
*HoneyCrisp Apples. Hands down favorite Apple! One a Day Baby!!
*Moms Caramel Corn. Oh my gosh, maybe I can talk her in to sharing the recipe with you all
*Caramel Candy Corn. Just tried this and so good! Brach's knows how to do candy corns!!

This drink is so heavenly! I got mine at Target. Grabbing a book and my cozy sweater And sipping this goodness. With skim or almond milk of course.

    Oooh love the lake sweatshirt (even if not from MI, I'm a lake gal, right?). Your sangria looks divine. I could never find a good pair of (cheap) leather-like leggings last year so if you snag some, do share! Oh, and coming to Indy the 23rd! Madison and New Castle so get the good weather ready for me, love. Have a wonderful weekend! xx

  23. I feel like we always share the same favorites. I would love to dive into that apple sangria while wearing the ruffle bottom top!

    Pumps and Push-Ups

  24. That second faux leather leggings look is amazing. I was looking at your Pinterest board a few days ago and pinned that one immediately! Honey crisp apples are the best!!

  25. Gifts for no reason makes for an awesome week! My husband and I are small business owners. One day, he complimented a customer and told her that I'd like her top because I am fond of leopard print. The next week, she brought in a bag with a leopard print scarf saying when she thought of it, she thought of me. How sweet is that!?

  26. Those leather legging pics are so cute. I'm just not sure I can pull them off. I always think about the Friends episode where Ross couldn't get them off. haha Going to have to try that tea! Last year I got some pumpkin flavored tea from Target and loved it.

  27. The hand cream sounds lovely!

  28. LOVE Lake Michigan! Super cute sweatshirt!

  29. Love all of your fall finds.Especially that Sweatshirt :) Thank you for sharing with us at #HomeMattersParty. We would love to have you next week again.
