Last Weekend In October Review

Now way. Today is the 30th of October. That means a lot of big things are on the horizon. Things like our trip to Hawaii TOMORROW!!! Then when we get back it will only be a little less than 2 weeks until Katie and Erin arrive for Thanksgiving, and a few days after they get here, Benny will arrive. Poor guy. Welcome to the real world, where jobs dictate your vacation.


So the big question is...Have you started thinking about Black Friday?

Our weekend was uneventful by most standards, but we enjoyed it. Here's a quick peak.


Katie went with her "friend" Luke to a rehearsal dinner. Can I tell you how awesome FaceTime is! She just calls me up and says which shoe, which earring, and yada yada. I love it!


Last night I received this picture. Aren't they adorable?! Best part is she's so happy. This little girl has had some hard relationships since starting college, but this one looks like it promises to be much better. (Oh, and btw, shhhh...they are now dating๐Ÿ˜‰)



We got a new ipad! Yippee! Ours was 4 years old and had gotten to where it would hardly respond. I mostly use it at night before I go to sleep to cruise Pinterest and such, so we just traded our old one in on a basic model. The trade in value was $110, so we thought that was pretty good. I ordered this case with a keyboard to go with it. I've also downloaded a bunch of shows from our DVR to watch on the flights.



Thanks to Shelly's advice I ordered this wide angle lens to go on our cell phones. I figure we will probably end up mostly taking "selfies" on our trip and this looks like it will really come in handy.

It was finally cool enough to wear some "fall-ish" Saturday. OU was playing and while that wasn't really my motivation for choosing this top, it worked out well. #boomersooner I love this Free People tunic I purchased last year and it's back this year too. Free People clothes are some of my favorites.



Sunday morning I pulled this outfit together for church.


And because I knew there would MINUTES where I'd be cold, I added one of my favorite sweaters. This circle cardigan is like being wrapped in a hug. Cheesy right? Yes, but oh so true.


We finally shared our first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season and it was yummy.


Since we will be gone for Trick or Treating tomorrow night I wanted to take the girlies next door some special treats. Truth be told, even if we were here I would still do something special for them.


They were all kinds of cute in their little tiger ears and of course couldn't bust into their goodies fast enough.

Thanks for stopping by today friends. I'd better get a move on. I probably don't have to tell you if I post, it will be spotty at best until we return. I hope you have a great week.

Friday Favorites #81


Hello friends and hello Friday! I don't know about you, but I'm having a little trouble believing this is the last Friday in October and next week will be November. It's been in the upper 80's and hit 90 degrees several days this week, so it sure doesn't feel like fall right now.

Just like every Friday I'm linking up with some blog friends to chat about our favorites from the week. You can find all the link ups I participate in under the Link Ups tab above. I've got a variety of things to share with you, so lets get to it. 
              

Y'all know I love a good funny and if you've ever stepped on a Lego...well you know there is no pain like a Lego stabbing the bottom of your foot. Those little boogers manage to hide everywhere no matter how hard you try to keep them picked up.

I received another Influenster box this week with Garnier Fructis products in it. Both bottles are made to use when straightening and add protection from heat and enhance shine. 


The Flat Iron Perfector is used on dry hair before straightening. As I was misting it on, I noticed it had a nice smell. My hair didn't feel heavy or crunchy after using it and it provides heat protection up to 450 degrees. The other bottle is a glossing spray and it also has a nice smell and leaves my hair really soft and weird as it sounds glossy and shiny. I think it really brings out the blonde highlights in my hair, and it doesn't leave my hair feeling like it has any kind of residue or stiffness and it remains moveable and touchable.

Halloween Buntings



While I was in Nashville, Elizabeth and I made the cutest burlap bunting to hang on her mantle. This wasn't our first time we've done this together. Last spring we made adorable bunny buntings for Easter and I also made one for Valentine's Day last year. This week I made a candy corn one for myself. They are both really cute, but I think I like the dots the same color as the candy corn like we did on hers. I might give mine to my neighbor and make another one for myself. What do you think?

I've burned this candle every day this week (thanks Kellyann) and it smells glorious. The smell permeates the entire house and I love it. 
                 
                               


Okay, do you keep deodorant in your car? I keep it in mine and I had one in Kent's until it recently melted. Lets just say he wasn't exactly thrilled about that.๐Ÿ˜œ
                 

One of the last times I was in Nashville, my girlfriend Carla (hi Carla!) told me about this nail polish.  She said she could go 2 weeks without having to redo her nails and loved it. The bottle says 7 days and the first time I used it, mine lasted 4 days before one nail chipped. She was using this top coat. (they didn't have it when I went in the store, so I purchased this one.) I'm going to see how long they last this time and then maybe order the right topcoat. Honestly, I was happy to have my polish stay on after just one day. I usually paint mine and they chip the next morning in the shower.

            

Loft is having a FLASH sale with 60% off a lot of fall merchandise. These things will be showing up on my doorstep next week. They've also got 50% off a lot of other things too.

Y'all know nothing would make me happier than if you'd follow me on Bloglovin'FacebookInstagram & Pinterest and subscribe for email updates whenever there's a new post.

   That's a wrap friends. Have a wonderful weekend.
