FRIDAY FAVORITES......It's NOT Mid-October Edition

It seriously cannot be, how in the world can our Beloved October be half over??? I hope you're soaking up every bit of Fall that you can. Let's get into the Friday favs right now so I can go soak in it. Have plans to spend the day with a son of mine home from college. Happy Weekend angels!!

1. KIDS Home....and more kid goodness
How lucky were we to see this one 2 weekends in a row. He came home to see his brother play football, then Fall Break the following. We also, on a take back trip to Purdue, got an expanded tour of his campus life. No wonder our baby has lost weight, that boys gets in some steps!! #9's team plays it's last regular season game tonight and are 6-2 and Oldest Baby got home last night for 6 days and his Fall break! Mama's heart is full.
Home sweet Home 
His LOVE of the Pumpkin Spice Care Package is still a favorite of the week

2. New Pumpkin Yummies
I have always liked covered pretzels but ones I saw in a farmers market were $6.99 for a bag half this size. so excited to get this bag at target for less than $4. There's such a plethora of pumpkin snacks to choose from, it's fun to see and taste the new ones.

Oh and a favorite breakfast treat......

3. Week's Attire

Express sweater, Loft necklace, Anne Klein flats

Target top, JC Penny Sweater, Payless Leopard Flats

Macy's top, Lia Sophia necklace

4. The Military Jacket I thought Was Too Big
I got this military jacket at the Nordstrom sale despite having one already that I didn't love. When it arrived, I thought crap, this is waaaay too big but in all actuality, I like it that way, layering works much better and it covers my butt in leggings. Perfect for a Saturday Morning Football game.

5. These Quotes
I love lil quotes and meme sayings especially when they are so relatable.
Here are couple that meant something to me and my loved ones this week

My dear friend needed this quote on a bad day this week...I think we all do!

Laughed so hard when I read on!!

So many nasty people, so little time..while I don't normally cuss on the blog...this saying is nothing but pure truth!!

This Weekend Find joy, Spread joy, BE JOY!!! xo

  1. Those last two quotes are hilarious!! I can't believe its mid-October either!! We had so much rain the beginning it kind of washed out those first couple of weeks but now the sun is shining I definitely have some fall living to do!


  2. I love the pumpkin treats you posted! Pumpkin flavored anything is so good! and I love how you styled your military jacket--I've got a military vest that I'm waiting to wear until it gets below 80 degrees....maybe soon!

    This month is flying and it just seems impossible that Halloween is only a few weeks away. YAY for having kids home ! Your boys are handsome :) Love your military jacket ! I have my eye on one ! Enjoy your weekend !

  18. That Trump/Clinton one is so true! Where's Grandma when you need her?!

    So happy you got to see your boys! I can see why your momma's heart is full to the brim! :)

    And that pumpkin butter sounds deeeelightful!

  19. I'm so in love with that jacket. I have been on the hunt for one exactly like it. Yep - need room for all the flannel underneath ;)

  20. Love the quotes...even the cussing. So glad you enjoyed time with your boys. Pray tell, where does one buy pumpkin butter and pumpkin spice English muffins? Need them in my cupboard and my life.

  21. Those quotes are awesome and I still think that it's the sweetest thing that you sent your son a care package! You are one fabulous mom!

  22. Yay for boys being home! We don't have a fall break - boo - but we're headed to see our boy at school and watch the WSU/UCLA football game. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  23. Happy Friday!! Yay for spending time with the boys. Two weekends in a row is awesome! Oh those pumpkin pretzels sound so tasty! Loving the military jacket look. I just took some pics in mine and will be sharing next week :) That Trump/Clinton one is so true. This whole thing is embarrassing. Have the best weekend xo

  24. The Trump/Clinton post about divorced parents quote makes me laugh each time I see it. SO SO SO true haha

  25. Don't we all wanna just go live with Grandma now?! OMG this election is going to be the death of me. Or the country. Haha.

    I love all of your outfits for the week... so much color! And as I've said before, you have GREAT STYLE! Enjoy your weekend with your babies... I know you will!

  26. I love the Trump/Clinton meme. Lol I shared that on FB the other day. Too true.

    Yay for getting to see your boy 2 weekends in a row!!

  27. I love your Friday favorites! Your pumpkin spice package looked delish and your utility jacket is not too big at all! It is perfect!

  28. Oh my, those last pics totally summarize the election and news coverage right now. I had to turn the news off last night because I didn't want my kids hearing about groping, etc. Anyway, love all your favorites, especially about your sons. I just bought some pumpkin butter at Trader Joe's. It's so yummy! Have a great weekend!

  29. Oh girl, I hope you have a fabulous weekend with your boys!! You could be the most committed pumpkin flavored person I know - lol! It all sounds yummy! And yes, nasty people suck . . .

  30. I couldn't agree more with the last quote. I have cut some nasty people out of my life and it was a good decision. (And best for them, in my opinion - when you continue being someone's tool/doormat, you enable them.)

  31. Hahaha, I have to remember the last one. Although in Dutch it sounds weird.

  32. I know you were over the moon to have the boys home last week! Sweet family times! Girl, I'm still recovering over here! And looking for that purple bomber jacket! Also, I usually like my jackets big for layering, but I do have a more fitted military jacket, too! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

  33. Obviously I now must make a target run! I know it has meant so much to have some time with your boys. Hope you have an amazing weekend!

  34. How nice that you are getting to spend time with your sons!
