It has been awhile since I have done a good ‘favorites’ post, but it is the middle of October, fall is in the air, and Christmas is on the horizon, and you better believe I have a pile of favorites I have racked up. Really though, is there anything better than a Friday in the fall? I think not, my friends!
1. Tan riding boots
I bought a pair of tan riding boots from target four or five years ago, and I wore those babies around the clock. I absolutely loved them. Unfortunately, Minnesota winters make for longs of ice, slush, and salt, and after one too many seasons, the boots that had carried me through it all were literally wearing holes around the soles. With much regret and sadness I threw them away at the end of last winter, and may have nearly shed a tear in the process. This year, I was determined to find another pair, and wouldn’t you know, Target doesn’t have a single. pair. of tan boots that struck my fancy. I loved every detail of my old boots, and all the other new, poor boots were being compared to the forever favorite. So, I did what any practical girl would do and hopped online, and found these babies on Amazon. You guys, they are almost identical to my old boots, minus some red detailing on the zipper of my old boots. Same buckle placement, same color, everything. and for around $25?? YES PLEASE. They arrived this week, and I am in love. I literally feel like I am at home when I put them on, and can’t wait to wear them every single day.
2. House plans
This weekend we have our first meeting with a builder to start looking over floor plans to being the process of home building! YAY!! We are just beginning down a long road, and I know we have about 5 or 6 months until we will be able to dig that hole and get things started, but I am so excited to start making progress, and have some floor plans in my hands that will tell me what my new house will look like. I may already be planning kitchen space to see how many holiday dishes and coffee mugs I can get away with storing in my new cabinets. so. excited.
3. Halloween jammies
My love for baby jammies is no secret. Jackson has as many pajamas as he does real clothes. It is bordering on being a problem. But I just can’t say no. This year, he has four, yes four, pairs of Halloween jammies, and I love them all. To justify, I did whip them out as of September 1st, and will likely rock them until Thanksgiving. Because how can you not!?
4.Caramel apple cookies
You guys, I bought this Pillsbury mix last year, and the frosting to go along with it, and these cookies are out. of. this. world. So easy to make, and so so flavorful. I am resisting the urge to make a box every single weekend for the next month. YUM.
It is no secret that one of the best parts of fall is whipping out the warm cozy clothes, including boots, scarves, and big cozy sweaters. I scooped these up at Old Navy for a steal of a price. I bought the heather marl and oatmeal marl, and am totally rocking one already today. Bonus: it comes it tall sizes, which means extra length and long sleeves for tall ladies like myself! Scoop these up now, with promo code they are only $15 a pop!
As always, linking up with my favorite ladies for our favorites on Fridays!
