Friday Stuff

Woohooo it's Friday and it's not raining, and it's a weekend at home! Just yay!

{1}- Loft Sale
Yep, I fell prey to the 50% off Loft sale on Wednesday night. Again. I ordered some super cute stuff online for the Fall/Winter (all of which can be worn for work or outside of work). And, the best part is, now that the mall by us is opened up, I can return anything that I don't like super easily and quickly. Here's my haul:

{2}-Louis V 2.0
Remember when I said hello to my loverrrr, Louis V? it has a brother:
And all I have to say is that I have the best mother-in-law....pretty much in the history of ever #myMILisbetterthanyours #myclosetrunnethover

{3}-House Projects
MG and I have been on a break from house projects for a little bit, but after going to see his sister's new and beautiful house last weekend, and it basically looking like they've lived there forever after only 3 weeks (how did she do it??), we've gotten back into planning more things for our place. This weekend's agenda right now involves picking out paint and then painting our entry hallway, the guest bedroom and re-painting some of the doors/trim (because the previous owner decided to do some in white, and some in off-white....cuz that makes sense...arg!)
this is the color inspiration for both rooms at this point
{4}-New Recipe
Next week I'm planning on posting the recipe for the easiest and most delicious broccoli cheddar soup, made from scratch, that I've ever had. In the meantime, here's a pic to tantalize you:
Im salivating just remembering how yummy it was...
{5}- Family
Maybe you've noticed, and maybe you haven't, but I've been a little absent from the blog in terms of posting personal stuff (the Blogtober link up has helped hide that a bit). There have been some things going on lately that I don't want to go into detail about on here, but I do want to ask that you take a second and send up a prayer for MG's family. They've been going through some rough waters lately and an extra prayer here and there might be just what the doctor ordered. 

And just so I don't end this post on a less-than-happy note, just remember as you're wrapping up the week....
Hope your weekend is fun-filled, and calorie-free! :)

  6. There are few things I enjoy more during the cooler months than a good Broccoli Cheddar soup! I will be looking forward to that post.

  15. Lucky you with the new purse! I have been avoiding looking at the Loft website so that I don't break the bank but I love the tan pants you got so maybe I'll take a peak! :)

  16. Those sales can totally do you in! Love the inspiration for the re-decorating. I really need to paint all my trim and doors, they are looking rough. Have a great weekend!

  17. I giggled at the hashtag: myclosestrunethover

    That's hysterical!

    I love the brother purse - heck - I'm new here, I love them BOTH!

    Good thoughts and prayers and energy to your family.

  18. The color inspiration looks great. I saw a perfect neutral in a show house last summer that looks like it might work. Sherwin Williams 'cargo pants' (not kidding). I seriously saw the color and have remembered the shade and the name all this time without writing it down. We are done painting every inch of our house at this point but I'm trying to find a way to bring this paint color in somewhere. We are Ben Moore loyalists, so I'd just have them color match it. Check it out!

  19. I stocked up at the last Loft sale! 50% off was too good not to shop haha!

  20. I ended up buying a few things too! Haha. I'm trying to make a list of all the house projects I'd like to get done. I have little things that need to be done, and big things like the kitchen that need a MAJOR makeover!
    Also, I nominated you for an award! :) The post is on my blog:

  21. Mmm, that broccoli cheddar soup looks amazing - looking forward to the recipe!!

  22. I love the sweater! I need a slouchy sweater or 10!!
    I have nominated you for an award! You can get all the details over on my blog


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
