Friday Faves!

It's Friday!! Whoop whoop!
We've had some gorgeous days here in the DC area and I'm all about it! I'm so glad that Fall has lasted for more than 2 days before it hopped straight into Winter because I'm loving the subtle change into the season.

Anyway, let's talk about some favorites from this week, shall we?
{1} Essential Oils/Diffuser
So, I did it. I hopped on the essential oil train after hearing rave reviews about it from friends, in real life and blog world, and I've gotta say, I love it!
I got a diffuser on Amazon that was a decent price and had good reviews, as well as an essential oils starter kit, and have been running my diffuser ever since I got it on Tuesday evening. I even brought it to work, and the thing lasts ALL day! (My kids at work have enjoyed my nice smelling office, too :)

{2} My Loft Haul
I mentioned earlier this week that while I was in Philly, we stopped by the outlets, and I spent my whole time basically at Loft (surprise surprise). I ended up getting 5 things, my favorite of which was this poncho and the green and blue plaid shirt I'm wearing underneath:
I see it working with skinnies jeans or leggings and brown boots.
 The best part was, nothing was more than $25! Win!

{3} Cooper
I mentioned the other day that Cooper had a bladder infection which prompted us to make a trip to the vet. I'm happy to report that the antibiotics that he's been taking seem to have worked and he's feeling much better (and no more accidents!)
Not to mention, he's just stinking adorable (but I may be biased) 
He's gonna spend the weekend with our friends because...

{4} Weekend Plans
MG and I are off again this weekend to visit our friends in Minnesota. It's a yearly tradition to go, see our friends, and go to a Vikings game (MG's friend is a coach for the team). Although MN is cold this time of year, the temps aren't too bad (which is why this tradition always happens in October)--and it's always fun to get to see their adorable little kids and spend time together. And this trip, we'll finally get to see MG's best friend and his fiance for the first time, in person, since they got engaged! So, if you don't see me around here on Monday, that's why!

{5} Funnies
When you get all of your new clothing items on sale

When you eat fried pickles followed by buffalo wings

When someone insults one of your favorite things

When you look at the ShopBop sale, only to find out the sale price on some stuff is still $200+

When your husband cooks you dinner at the end of a long week, and does the dishes afterwards, too:

Hope you have a quick Friday and a nice weekend!

  1. Ok totally loving your poncho from Loft! So cute! And let me know which essential oils you've been using, I've been wanting to jump on board that train but how no clue where to start. And yes to the Shopbop sale. Not much of a sale when it still costs a few hundred dollars! Have a great weekend girl! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
