Hi Friday loves! I say October don’t go because I LOVE October, but the maybe do part is to get this surgery further behind me. Exactly 1-month post-op today and feeling great. Back to regular walks and my usual shenanigans for the most part. Lol. Got some Fall cleaning up to do this weekend outside and maybe starting the decorating!! Eek..countdown is on. And Sweet BOOs if you partake in Halloween!!

1. Day Date

Well, for the first time post-surgery, Mr. Nine and I finally had a day date and we tried someplace new! There is a new and very modern brewery 25 minutes south of us, so we headed down there on a beautiful afternoon last Saturday and had the most delicious meal! It was also the first cocktail I’ve had since before surgery and that smokin pineapple peach margarita was delicious! Mr. Nine got an incredible burger with bacon jam on it, we shared some tater tots called tipsy tots with the yummy topping and I got a mahi-mahi Reuben with sweet potato fries!

2. Gift Guides
Coffee Theme Gift 

A friend of mine, who loves coffee, recently had a birthday and I compiled this gift basket for her. I’ve linked up everything you need to create your own gift basket as it was a huge hit! I had one of those Cellophane gift basket bags around it, but I put some Leopard Duct Tape to hold down the corners. I think it turned out so cute.

4. Liverpool with Mr. Nine

Oh, it’s no secret, M. Nine and I love our Liverpool jeans. These black ones he is wearing are the Relaxed Straight and mine are the kick flare crop. LOVE THEM!! My jacquard moto jacket and henley are Liverpool too. We thought we looked like a couple of bad a$$es in this photo but then I had to go pose with angel wings, lol!

Monday ~ Pink Gift Ideas

Monster Brains Munch Mix

I cannot believe it is Halloween weekend! Back when the kids were younger, this was the most requested room mom snack ever in my history of being a room mom, LOL! I think because it was just too darn cute! Plus, it was super yummy as I had derived it from a local Amish Cookbook. You’ll find my recipe HERE in case you want to make this ghoulish! LOL

Mom's Caramel Corn

This next recipe is my mom’s most requested Fall treat! Trust me when I say, there is no better caramel corn than hers! I shared this on Instagram a while back and y’all went crazy for it, a couple people even made it that very day. Mr. Nine and I sometimes fight over this, LOL! It’s so good! 

Find the recipe HERE


Enjoy the HALLOWEEN/FALL Weekend My Pretties!!
I'll be Back Monday.

Well, I lied a few weeks ago when I said I was sharing my last bit of Petal and Pup. How could I forget these two darling outfits! Plus, the promo code we have is good all the way until November 10 so why not pick up some holiday cuteness for yourself and your loved ones! As you know, this is a new beloved brand of mine, affordable, chic and oh so cute!
And a Code for 15% for everything at Petal and Pup is:

First up is this darling subdued leopard print smocked waist tiered DRESS that I wore to brunch in Chicago! I thought it looked especially cute with boots.


 A fun accent with the Hunter Green from my Teddy Blake Croc Embossed Vanessa 14" Bag. I've share this bag with you before but just Love Teddy Blake and this bag so much. The Green is SOOO GOOD!! I wore it with another Petal and Pup dress here. Love the compartments inside and we have a great promo code for you too. 


for 30% off!

Teddy and Blake purses make a great Holiday Gift!!


Missing my Petunias right about now too.

We pulled them out a couple weeks ago.

The minute I saw these Pants, I knew I had to have them! I just love the checkered look and the fit. I felt the same way about the delicate white top and decided why not put them together! I think it is such a sweet fall outfit and a little bit unexpected.


Here is all the recent goodness from Petal & Pup,


Clockwise from top Left: Pants // Rust Top // White blouse// Pink Dress // Leopard Dress // Rust Dress // Cardigan

So many Pretty Things!
PETAL and PUP is offering all my readers 15% off everything with Code: CLOUDNINE15



I know there are probably some people out there who do not like pink, but I don’t really know them, LOL! All kidding aside, pink just makes me happy, and I think a lot of ladies, girls and teens would love to get some pink goodness under the tree!


I think it’s safe to say you know my love of YETI Products, we call ourselves a YETI family because we own dozens! They are just so darn practical and the new Limited Edition sandstone color is beyond beautiful! It really is like the color of the desert with the pink tint, a nice soft blush. Grab these before they are gone because the limited edition colors go quick as I can attest to with a pink they had a couple years back.The 20oz Rambler Tumbler is my favorite! And you know I love the slim can insulators for seltzers.

This Charlotte Tilbury Lip Set was one of my favorites last year and it's BACK!!! Such a high-quality Brand and beautiful pinks!!


This Pair of Kendra Scott Earrings. This style is my favorite and I own them in Ivory Pearl.

Now, I’ve created a lovely collage with soft pink gift ideas. I really love the Pink Fuzzy Slippers and how cool are the Pink Nike's! The Pink Fur Purse is so cute and only $20!! The Hello Gorgeous mug; my favorite ever from Target and only $7!!
I LOVED the sweater so much I ended up buying it in 
red too after this pink one.

And you guys: THIS PINK HEART SWEATER from CHICWISH! It's my favorite ever, the chunky knit is perfect and it is on sale right now and comes in more colors. I got the s/m; that's how the sizing goes and it is perfect. I recently became a Chicwish ambassador and so I will be sharing more from them soon.


Last but not least, the pink Nails. Remember on Friday when I told you I was selling Red Aspen press on nail dashes? Well, the pink colors are some of my favorite and will you just look at these called Rosa and Raspberries! So Pink Perfect!!

HAPPY SHOPPING and Hope you see some pretty PINK today!!



 Well, better late than never but I forgot to do an intro to this post, LOL! 
So, HAPPY Friday let’s get to the favorites of the week! Love ya! 

Darling Dainty Gold Rings

There is just something about Sweet, Dainty Gold Rings! I think they are so precious and I especially love stacking them which is what I’m going to do with the two of these. I think they make such a great gift for all your feminine friends and family, and you cannot go wrong with pretty cool things!

2. Christmas PJ's

I know, for some of you, it may be way too early for the Christmas jammies, but trust me when I say these cuties, at these prices, are not going to last! I got my last year the first week of November, but I think you’ll need them even earlier this year! I own a couple of these on this collage and I absolutely love them, especially the plaid ones from Target.

3. Week's Attire
Speaking of comfies.....

Such a huge thank you to Soma Intimates for making my recovery so much sweeter! They kindly sent me some wonderful comfy clothes for recovering. I remember getting my first pairs of so much intimate underwear when I was with the girls in Nashville, and I fell in love! Just look how cute these comfies are, even Mr. Nine fell in love with my joggers, LOL!

These leopard ones are called “COOL NIGHTS” and talk about great reviews because they really do keep you cool, plus are oh so stylish!


They come in other patterns too.

Here are those black Joggers and man are they good! And then I have a wrap hoodie with packets to go with. The joggers have pockets too and a great all-purpose white tank top for underneath. What I love about this is that it can even be worn out and about.


The perfect shade of heather gray and the perfect flow of comfort! I love this set.


4. Red Dress
There’s something about Swiss dots that is so dainty indeed! This is one of my favorite Dresses from Shop the Mint and it is on sale right now, coming in four colors! Such a good one! Very forgiving yet very flattering with the pattern, cut and the cuffed wrists. LOVED with the Heart Necklace and Leopard Heels

AND NOT a Fav...Will you look at this:

My beloved burgundy pumpkins turned after 2 weeks to a rusty color. I mean I like it, but the whole theme was deep red and white. Plus, our weather has been so warm, that now they are now about toast. Makes me so sad and I never got anymore outfit photos with them. 

5. Misc. Fun


Even though I am influencer who “sells” things so speak, I have never been involved in one of those at home product sales but that all changed this week because of a product I feel so passionate about. As you know, I have been doing my own nails for over 10 years. See the post how I apply them

And while those nails were OK, this past year I noticed a decline in color and design choices. Then my fellow blogger friend Holly, introduced me to Red Aspen Nail Dashes and I was sold. The team that started this company has patented their glue and my nail dashes from Red Aspen stay on at least three weeks if not more. But the real seller is the fact that they come in tons of colors, sizes, designs and they are constantly coming out with new seasonal nails. So much fun. 
You can go to my own website HERE
to purchase nail dashes or click the Red Aspen Nails tab at the top of my blog to learn more. Thank you so much for supporting my new endeavor and little side hustle, LOL!

Recent Colors I Bought..
That red is my favorite shade and 
will be great for the holidays.

This color, Fall for Christine, is what I'm wearing right now.

I know many of us have a hard time with what type of shoes to wear in the Fall but for me, running around doing errands and such, sneakers are the perfect accessory. Plus, they’re super comfy like all these New Balance Cuties! So many cool shades and patterns right now.
From Top Left: Blush Pink // Silver // Black and Leopard // Cream // Black


This one is hilarious because errands have been "going out" for me for years, lol!
And this because it warms my heart. Wish I'd given a chocolate kiss to 
Daisy at the end.

Enjoy the FALL Weekend My Loves!!
I'll be Back Monday.
